90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way star Biniyam Shibre welcomed his son Aviel with fiancée Ariela Weinberg while living in his native country of Ethiopia. After their baby boy arrived and drama between them peaked in season 3, the TLC personality revealed that he relocated thousands of miles away to be closer to his family. Keep scrolling for everything we know regarding his whereabouts.

Where Is Biniyam Living?

During the December 5 tell-all, the couple announced that Biniyam obtained his K-1 visa and is now living with Ariela in New Jersey. Biniyam completed the K-1 visa interview process in Ethiopia and was successful, giving him the opportunity to live in the United States.

“I think Biniyam having the opportunity to be in the U.S. and see where I’m from, understand me better, I don’t know, I think it makes the relationship stronger by showing, like, ‘OK, we don’t need things from each other. We just want each other,'” Ariela explained to host Shaun Robinson, while he proudly shared that their relationship was still in “good” standing.

Fans had an inkling he was in America before their confirmation because the season 3 star has a P.O. box in Plainsboro, New Jersey, according to his updated Instagram bio. 90 Day Fiancé viewers speculated he was staying there with Ariela and Aviel because it’s only one town over from Princeton, which is where Ariela’s family lives and where she was raised.

What Happened on the Spinoff?

Ariela and Biniyam’s relationship has been put to the test in recent episodes due to her staying in New Jersey with loved ones as he remained behind in Ethiopia. The mom of one traveled back to the U.S. so their son could get hernia surgery, sparking concerns from Biniyam, whose former relationship with his ex-wife, Bria, ended after she returned to America with their son, Simon

In a confessional, Ariela explained why she stayed longer than expected on her trip, noting that it took some time for her son’s procedure to be scheduled. 

“It’s been great to be with my family here in the U.S., but it’s been really stressful being so far away from Bini and it’s been really hard on our relationship,” she vented.

The disputes between them had also caused Biniyam to doubt their ability to go the distance. “I am fearful inside because we don’t have a good relationship,” he later chimed in. “I really want Ari to keep her word and return to Ethiopia for me. If she is not happy, I know she will not return. Therefore, the situation scares me.”

What Did They Say About Biniyam’s Visa Status Before He Obtained His K1?

After being pressured to move back to the U.S., Ariela told her family that wouldn’t be the best option for herself and Aviel because she didn’t have a home or job to return to on the October 17 episode. During the scene, Ariela also stated that she applied for a K-1 visa for Biniyam.

“At the time, I wasn’t necessarily planning on using it to live in the U.S., because for one thing, Bini never liked the idea of leaving Ethiopia,” she shared in a confessional. “But my mom encouraged us to apply as soon as possible. She told me these things do take time, you never know what could happen in the future … When I applied for it, I wasn’t sure that we wanted to move here, but I at least wanted to have the option, you know? At least, we could decide that we wanted to stay in Ethiopia or do we want to go to the States.”
