A bun in the oven? Brandon Gibbs and Julia Trubkina made their eagerly anticipated debut during the season 8 premiere of 90 Day Fiancé, and dropped a baby bombshell in a teaser showing the upcoming drama fans can expect to see.
Brandon, 27, held up a timer as they waited for the results of her pregnancy test in the final minutes of the new episode, which aired on Sunday, December 6.
The Russia native was shocked to discover it showed “two lines,” which usually indicates a woman is indeed expecting. “You’re joking, right?” he asked with an astonished look on his face. “No,” she replied before handing the results to him.
It may come as no surprise to fans who learned all about their relationship. Brandon’s mom, Betty, and dad, Ron, both expressed their concerns after learning the couple would likely be having unprotected sex upon her arrival to America.
Betty was persistent about them using contraceptive methods to avoid an unexpected pregnancy and even told him they will need to sleep in separate bedrooms while he and Julia, 26, are staying at their house.
When Betty asked if Julia was on birth control, he said no and confirmed she didn’t want to be on it for various reasons. However, Brandon’s mom wasn’t about to take no for an answer, at least without trying to offer help where she could.
In one scene, Betty called her doctor to set up an appointment to discuss birth control options for the duo. “Is that [going to] change anything? No,” the Virginia native said in his confessional. “She can’t make Julia’s decision for her.”
Brandon was very open about his attraction toward Julia in the teaser, noting, “I might look like an innocent boy,” but that quickly changes when his mom is “away.”
The new couple on TLC’s flagship reality series dated for five months before he proposed in Iceland. It seems their relationship will face some turbulence along the way, considering his parents are quite conservative and they are worried about her intentions: mainly if she is using him for a green card or money.
Betty asked about Julia’s job at one point, and wasn’t enthused to hear she was a go-go dancer. Despite some concerns over their blossoming romance, Brandon admitted he was smitten right away.
“She was the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen,” he gushed.
Season 8 of 90 Day Fiancé airs Sundays at 8/7c on TLC.
