Bilal is a real estate agent and investor from Kansas City, Missouri, and describes himself as “hood boujee.”
“I do appreciate nice things — nice suits, love watches. However, at the end of the day, I didn’t grow up in the suburbs, I grew up in the hood. So that really makes me who I am,” Bilal explained during the season 9 premiere of 90 Day Fiancé in April 2022.
He added, “Being detail-oriented has for sure helped me achieve the successes that I’ve had.

’90 Day Fiance’ Star Shaeeda Sween Agreed to Sign Bilal Hazziez’s Prenup
Bilal explained that he was born and raised in the Muslim religion, which is something he has in common with Shaeeda. He met the yoga instructor from Trinidad and Tobago via social media and they were looking forward to tying the knot even though they only spent a total of seven days together in person.
When the couple finally reunited on season 9, cultural differences caused them to clash, especially over finances. Bilal explained that he would most definitely expect Shaeeda to sign a prenup in order to protect his assets and his children — since he shares a 16-year-old daughter and a 13-year-old son with his ex-wife, Shahida.
Another issue in their relationship is that Bilal had not been forthcoming with his finances and his lifestyle. He told Shahida that he “purposely” didn’t flaunt his money, material items or his wealth to Shaeeda. “Even when we video chat, you’re looking at a wall,” Bilal admitted.
Bilal Purposely Hid His Wealth From Shaeeda
To put Shaeeda to the test, Bilal arranged to play a prank on her. Instead of picking her up from the airport in his Mercedes and taking her straight to his beautiful home, he picked her up in a work van and took her to his childhood home — which appeared to be in poor condition — to see if she would be happy with her new living arrangements no matter the conditions.
However, the prank backfired on Bilal. “A lot of things need to be fixed,” Shaeeda told Bilal. He hit back, “A lot of things need to be fixed with your attitude.”
Did ’90 Day Fiance’ Stars Bilal and Shaeeda Get Married?
Despite starting their life in America together off on the wrong foot, Bilal and Shaeeda ended up making it down the aisle. In Touch exclusively confirmed via court records that Bilal and Shaeeda got married December 18, 2021, in Lees Summit, Missouri. Their wedding aired in a scene during the 90 Day Fiancé season 9 finale in July.
Amid season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? the couple’s discussions about starting a family were widely documented, as Shaeeda was all for the idea whereas Bilal dragged his feet. Being slapped with the label of the series’ “villain,” fans were quick to point out Bilal’s behavior and reticent approach to having children with his wife.
Despite their drama that played out during the most recent season, the couple appears to be going strong. On January 4, 2023, Bilal and Shaeeda took to Instagram to share a joint post of them kissing. “Cheers to 2023! Our first date night for the new year! Thank you supreme for everything! I can’t imagine life without you baby,” the captioned the sweet photo. “NON ALCOHOLIC DRINK. I DON’T DRINK.”
Do ’90 Day Fiance’ Stars Bilal and Shaeeda Want Kids?
Another source of conflict in Bilal and Shaeeda’s marriage came from their different expectations of wanting kids. In their prenup, Shaeeda made Bilal agree to start trying to have kids before she turned 40. However, the couple failed to see eye to eye on when they wanted to start having a family.
“I get that Bilal doesn’t want to talk about it. But I’m getting older, and I don’t have much time left. The prenup says that we have to try to have a baby by the time I am 40,” Shaeeda said in a confessional during an October 2022 episode. “If he violates the contract, I might have to take him to court. I wanted a traditional marriage. He decided to get all contractual on me, so, this is the price of contracts. You pay.”
However, Bilal appeared to have a change of heart when he proposed the idea of starting a family during the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? tell-all on January 15, which was shared by People.
He got down on one knee and held up a onesie to his wife that read, “If you think I’m cute you should see my mommy.”
“I want to ask you, will you have my baby? Do you want to go half on a baby?” Bilal said before Shaeeda happily hugged him
She emotionally added, “I just hope that I’ll be able to be a mom, and that I don’t have to wait too long.”
