“Our Baby Girl Mikayla IS HERE!” Dean captioned an Instagram post on Sunday, October 16. In the clip, he was seen cradling their new daughter as a slew of balloons flooded the video.
Dean was introduced to the franchise on season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. He accompanied his brother Tarik Myers on a trip to the Philippines to meet Tarik’s girlfriend Hazel. Although tensions were high between the brothers, due to Dean’s initial distrust of Hazel, they later reconciled and appeared together on the 90 Day Fiancé spinoff series Pillow Talk.
In fact, the Virginia native took a page from his brother’s book and made a trip to the Philippines himself after meeting and connecting with Rigin through a dating site called Filipino Cupid.
In an interview with Us Weekly the body building enthusiast revealed he was “speechless” when he learned Rigin had become pregnant. “I was just like, ‘Are you serious?’” he expressed. “If people know our journey, I wasn’t even thinking about having a baby at first and [there was] the whole thing with Rigin and [polycystic ovary syndrome]. Usually, they tell women that have PCOS you can’t have kids.”
The couple suffered a miscarriage with the first pregnancy and sought out the help of a fertility specialist.
In January 2021, they announced they were expecting a baby boy and two months later their son, Marshawn Bado Hashim, was born.
The proud father has been sharing updates on Instagram of his son every month since his birth. He shared a video of Marshawn at 6 months with a celebratory cake and the caption “Can’t Believe my little dude is already 6 Months!! We Love You Son!! Happy6th Monthsary!”
Marshawn turned 1 in March 2022. “It’s Official!” Dean commented below an adorable picture of his son looking very grown up in a tiny shirt, vest, and tie. “My little dude is 1 years Old! Boss Baby Style! we love you son HAPPY BIRTHDAY.”
The former Pillow Talk star has a daughter from a previous relationship named Tooty who started college in 2020.
Dean is currently living in the Philippines with Rigin and their two children.
