As the daughter of a cardiologist father and retired nurse, Ariela Weinberg probably never thought she would be giving birth in a place that didn’t have epidurals.
Ariela fell in love with Biniyam Shibre while traveling through Ethiopia. After dating for only three months, the couple found out they were expecting their first child together. Their journey is being documented on this season of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.
This baby will be Biniyam’s second child- he was previously married to another American woman. He and his ex-wife are currently not on speaking terms, but he has denied her allegations that he was unfaithful in the relationship.
Biniyam’s ex moved back to America with their son, and as a result, Biniyam hasn’t been able to be a part of his child’s life. Ari was determined to not let him feel that heartbreak with their child, which led to her decision to make the move to Ethiopia.
She wasn’t sold on living in Ethiopia Moving to Ethiopia meant living in simpler conditions than Ariela was accustomed too.
Biniyam showed her multiple apartments, but none of them were up to her and her mother Janice’s standards.
Because Biniyam works a number of odd jobs-including dancing with his ex at a nightclub – Ariela’s mother had serious doubts that Biniyam would be able to provide for Ari and the baby.
