The Ukraine native shared the exciting news with Mike, 34, while chatting on a video call, but she didn’t exactly get the joyous reaction she was likely hoping for. “I have to go to [the] U.S. in 20 days,” Natalie said, appearing to overwhelm him.
“Say something,” she added when he remained silent. “That’s very, very fast,” he admitted. “We definitely have a lot to talk about. We gotta get things figured out.”
The TLC couple agreed to try to settle their differences after Natalie, 35, arrived in America, giving them 90 days to decide if they will get married or not.
Mike revealed they had been struggling with “communication, anger and jealousy” amid their long-distance relationship and yet, he was hopeful they could move forward together.
The Washington resident confessed he was not “ready” to get married to Natalie, but was going to keep an open mind and give their love another shot. “It’s either we do this or don’t,” he added in his confessional. “At least we say we tried. This is the Hail Mary, I mean, basically, you know?”
Afterward, Mike discussed the visa update with his hairdresser and revealed he hadn’t even thought about their wedding yet with so much up in the air. The reality star said it’s “exciting and scary,” and he felt overcome with all sorts of emotions.
Later on, the blonde beauty called him to talk about their living situation. Mike said he was worried that she was not going to “like” staying with him. Natalie admitted it did “bother” her that his Uncle Beau would be there with them because she didn’t want to be in a house with a “stranger,” but he said Beau is family. “I’m not just going to kick Beau out on the street,” Mike told her.
Even with potential obstacles along the way, Mike and Natalie were not throwing it the towel just yet. “I’m hoping me and Natalie can discover ourselves in this 90 days and we can truly fall in love. And it all works out, but time will tell,” Mike shared in his confessional.
