Anfisa Nava: Paola Mayfield is a Little B-tch TLC Pawn!

On top of revealing how Jorge's prison sentence has changed her life for the worst, Anfisa Nava recently explained why they're done with the show.

She says that negotiations for a pay raise fell through, and that she and Jorge didn't want to be TLC's "little b--ches."

Anfisa was throwing shade at her former castmates, and Paola and Russ have issued a response.

Anfisa Nava Has Been Working Out

Anfisa has dedicated a lot of her free time to bodybuilding recently, but she still makes time for her fans.

"We had to make a choice," Anfisa explained recently.

"Either we go into something on our own, like our YouTube channel and other things," Anfisa said.

"Or," she continued. "We had to become the show’s little b--ches and do whatever they tell us to do, like some people."

It was that final jab that caught the attention of fans, and ultimately prompted Russ and Paola to respond.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield on YouTube

In a very lengthy YouTube video (Paola and Russ want fans to watch their 15 minute YouTube video? In this economy?), they replied.

"It was very undermining, the way it was stated, and it generalized the cast," Russa states. "And we just didn’t appreciate that,�

“If you’re going to make jabs," Russ suggests. "And you’re going to call someone out, then do it."

"But don’t generalize it, because, in the end, we’re all a part of this," he says.

Generalizing hurts everyone. He has a point.

"And," Russ says. "We all want to be a part of this."

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield Flaunt Pao's Bump

Paola and Russ continue, saying that the show has helped them to build a base of fans and to connect with viewers.

"And thanks to the show, all of you know about us,� Paola says.

“To be honest," Pao continues. "We are grateful to have been on the show for so many seasons."

That's a very positive attitude.

Mohamed Jbali and Danielle

Russ and Paola go on to praise Danielle Mullins and Mohamed Jbali for bringing attention to 90 Day Fiance.

They say that the controversial couple "really put the show on the map."

We don't dispute that.

Paola then praised Danielle for having been so smart with how she spent the money that she made from the series.

The timing of that was awkward, since Danielle has been begging fans for cash.

To be fair, Danielle invested her money into her home and into furthering her education. It wasn't frivilous spending.

The Mayfields

Paola and Russ then suggest that Anfisa was trying to bite off more than she could chew with TLC.

"Just because that specific person is not getting the ridiculous amount of money that she’s asking," Paola says.

It's clear that the person to whom they are referring is Anfisa.

"Yeah,� Russ adds.� I mean, they’re asking something along the lines of Kim Kardashian."

That's a doozy of a claim. We have trouble beliving that Anfisa wants $500,000 per episode.

Russ Mayfield and Paola Mayfield, Car Selfie

We suspect that Russ and Paola don't realize how much Kim makes per episode -- or how much they themselves could be making.

"Even more than what Kim Kardashian can get,� Pao claims, "And let’s be honest -- this is not MTV, this is not E! Entertainment television."

"And at the end, yeah, the money is good," Paola says. "But the idea of doing this show is not just about the money."

Well, she and Russ both work. Anfisa has not been shy about being fixated on money.

Pao has other priorities.

"You have fun," Paola says. "You enjoy it. You want to share your story."

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Breakfast Time

Paola is great, but she's missing the mark about this.

TLC is a television network, not a cobbled-together YouTube channel.

And 90 Day Fiance ratings tend to outpace other major reality series.

Maybe the stars have been told that they can only afford to make $1,000 or so per episode.

But many suspect that they could be making a whole lot more, with TLC still turning a tidy profit.

Paola Mayfield Car Selfie

After Paola shared the video, she received some heated comments from diehard Anfisa stans.

Yes, they exist.

Paola defended herself and Russ.

"She is trying to stay irrelevant by trashing the show and the cast," Paola says of Anfisa's abruptly ended reality career.

Pao says "calling us 'little bitches of the network' just because she didn’t get what she wants it’s ridiculous!"

"If she hates the show so much," Paola suggests. "Maybe she needs to move on and stop tagging 90DF and talking s--t about the cast!"

Anfisa Reacts

"Maybe it is none of my business what she says," Pao admits. "But I’m part of the franchise and that video wasn’t just about her."

"I wish her nothing by the best as I know she is alone in this country with her husband in jail," Paola says. "Have a great day!"

Nice shade there, Paola.

Meanwhile, Anfisa had her own response to anyone who thinks that she was calling them "little b--ches."

"If the shoe fits, wear it," Anfisa announced.

90 Day Fiance: Which Couples Are Still Together?

90 Day Fiance is one of those shows that sounds like it could be full of amazing love stories or just a total trainwreck.

Amazingly, the show manages to be both -- which is why people can't stop watching.

Sometimes, you see couples like Kirlyam and Alan Cox, who met despite being from different continents but found love and happiness, got married, and are growing their families.

Then you have more ... infamous couples.

Couples like Danielle Mullins and Mohamed Jbali, who seemed to be trying to out-scam each other but even those schemes devolved into mutual loathing.

A lot of the couples fall into the middle somewhere. Some are a little weird, some seem like soulmates.

Any marriage can go right or wrong, and becoming reality stars during your engagement adds an extra special twist to that.

Honestly, you might be shocked at how many of these couples are still together. And which ones aren't.




1. Fernanda Flores and Jonathan Rivera

Fernanda flores and jonathan rivera
Fernanda and Jonathan met while Jon was clubbing on vacation. He ended up extending that vacation. Despite an age gap, some homesickness, and a lot of doubts, the two tied the knot and remain married.

2. Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima

Molly and Luis broke up after a lot of arguments, an attempted reconciliation, and even the implication that Molly was abusive. Luis remarried to a mystery woman just four months after his divorce was finalized. Molly and Luis both claim that the other was using them.

4. Anfisa Arkhipchenko and Jorge Nava

5. Kirlyam and Alan Cox

Kirlyam's family couldn't even make it to the wedding and had to watch a livestream, but she and Alan Cox are adorably in love and enjoy nerding out together. Their first child, a boy named Liam, was born on October 6th, 2017!

6. Paola and Russ Mayfield

Paola and russ mayfield
This couple's biggest problem? Paola is a model, and Russ is super uncomfortable. Also, Russ is from Oklahoma, which is not quite the modeling capitol of the world. Despite some serious disagreements, Russ and Paola are still married, and announced in 2018 that Paola is pregnant.

Paola Mayfield Claps Back as Body-Shamers Accuse Her of Being Too Sexy

90 Day Fiance star Paola Mayfield doesn't let haters get her down.

She's a fitness model who loves her body, and she'll flaunt her baby bump in a bathtub if she sees fit.

But her new video has followers accusing her of posting "porn."

Paola Mayfield, Preggo Mirror Selfie

As you are about to see, Paola Mayfield showed off the changes that her pregnancy is making to her body.

"Everything is growing so much," she wrote in the caption. "And it is not only my belly."

Pregnancy can have a drastic impact on your entire body.

"I thought it was going to be hard to see all of these changes," Paola admits.

"But," she continues. "To be honest I’ve been enjoying being pregnant."

"I feel lucky and blessed to have such an amazing pregnancy," she gushes.

Paola Mayfield Shows Off Baby Bump, Butt on Instagram

This was the new footage of her that, as you'll soon see, got her followers so riled up.

"I’ve been using the extra delicious calories to build muscle while working out," she shares.

"But of course," she admits. "I’ve gained weight."

Paola then continues: "but to be honest that doesn’t bother me at all."

It doesn't bother her "because at the end I know how to get back to the way I was and I like it #noregrets."

"The most important" thing, she notes. "Is that my little angel is growing strong and healthy."

Even before the hateful trolls could fill up her mentions, Paola knew to head them off.

"*Before the #momshaming start with the blah blah blah comments," she added as a note. "Let me tell you this."

"No, I'm not worried what my kid’s friends will say about me when they see my photos or videos," Paola affirms.

"That is way [too far] down the road for me to even worry about," she explains.

"Plus," she notes. "I haven’t even pushed this baby out yet lol!"

We hope that in the dozen or so years before baby Mayfield has friends with free reign on social media, society will view women more fairly.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield Flaunt Pao's Bump

Paola is a fitness model, and she says that pregnancy hasn't altered her career goals.

"I’m not changing just because I’m pregnant or becoming a mom," Paola affirms.

Good for her!

"I was proud before of who I am," Paola writes. "And what I’ve done."

"So," Pao concludes. "There’s nothing to be ashamed of."

She is absolutely right, and has been just right all along. Sadly, not all of her followers see it that way.

Paola Mayfield: Look at My Baby Bump!

As they have all along at Paola's previous pregnancy pics and videos, mom-shamers and body-shamers crawled out of the woodwork.

"Have some respect for yourself!" demaned one hater. "You’re about to be a mother for God sakes!"

Sometimes, self-respect is loving your body instead of being ashamed of it.

"Maybe U should focus more on your marriage and baby rather than your body," suggested another shamer.

Her marriage is fine and her baby is healthy.

Then another accused Pao of posting "porn" and insisted that she get "some self respect and modesty."

Boy on Tap

Anyone who thinks that an innocuous Instagram video of a non-nude pregnant woman is "porn" has some truly alarming tastes.

There was nothing pornographic about Paola's video.

She showed the cheeks of her butt, as she has done countless times before, both as a model and as a human being who goes to the beach.

There is of course nothing wrong with sex work, but Paola was not engaging in that.

She's just showing her body in the mirror.

Some people won't be satisfied until every woman dons a nun's habit.

Paola Mayfield Skewers Body-Shamers With Bathtub Baby Bump Photo

90 Day Fiance star Paola Mayfield is pregnant with her first child. She and Russ are overjoyed.

Some of her more hateful followers have tried to body-shame her over her pregnancy, demanding that she cover up her baby bump.

Pao is hitting back with a photo of her wearing nothing at all -- except rose petals.

Paola Mayfield in a Rose Petal Bath

Paola shared this stunning photo of her very naked, very pregnant body in a rose petal bath.

In the captions, she made it clear that this is how she has chosen to clap back at her body-shamers.

"People have asked me if I‘m ever going to wear more clothes," Pao's caption begins.

She continues: "my answer is... do rose petals count?"

Paola remains an absolute delight, just as she was when she wrecked the shamers who told her to stop exercising.

Paola Mayfield Gives a Baby Bump Update

Paola has kept her fans updated on her pregnancy and her baby bump all along.

Her caption continues with a recommendation that others try a bath like hers.

"You too could benefit from this home spa," Paola suggests.

She adds that her bath is "with rose petals, coconut milk, and sea salt bath."

So, you might need a shower after such a bath if you really want to get clean.

Paola says that the bath is "perfect to keep my skin soft and my muscles relaxed."

The Mayfields

In case anyone had any doubts about who had taken the picture, she gives credit where credit is due.

"Thank you baby for my photo @russ_mayfield," Paola writes.

In case it was not obvious, the photographer she tagged was none other than her husband, Russ Mayfield. His name's right there.

Paola then tagged her post: "#momtobe #homespa #proudofmypregnantbody #90dayfiance #babybump"

She's a fitness model and she's proud of her body.

Paola is in no hurry to cover up her curves, even if one of them is just a baby bump.

Paola Mayfield, Beach Booty

Naturally, Paola's body-shamers weren't done trying to scold her into hiding her body.

"Eeeeww," exclaimed a super mature critic. "Still seeking attention in most unflattering ways...."

"Save this type of photograph for your husband," demanded another. "And only your husband. Nothing worse than a thirsty pregnant woman. I really want to like you."

Really? In all of the things in the world, there's nothing worse than a pregnant woman who's unashamed of her body?

"Why the need to seek so much attention?" wrote another. "If you really were secure & didnt give a rats f--k you wouldn't have to seek attention being half naked...just sayin."

She's a fitness model, she cares about keeping her fans updated, and she's a reality star.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield Flaunt Pao's Bump

But Paola also has her genuine fans.

"I don't think anything is wrong with you being naked and pregnant," wrote one defender.

That person continued: "Those who are asking about you wearing clothes are probably jealous."

"Who cares about clothes?" asked another. "Motherhood is beautiful and so are you!"

Another wasn't technically a critic, but offered a very different sort of positive feedback: "Those tatas are getting huge!! I love it!!"


Paola Mayfield: Look at My Baby Bump!

"Wow !!! I guess Russ has really lightened up," commented another.

"Before he would have made a big fuss about you being in such a photo," that person noted. "Now he not only allows it but hes the one taking the photo !!!"

Yes, it looks like Russ has gotten past at least some of his weird hangups about Paola's job.

"Omg! All these babies," wrote a commenter. "Yours, Karine with a rainbow baby, elizabeth, aziza."

Those are all 90 Day Fiance stars with 90 Day Fiance babies.

"Giant baby boom on TLC," the commenter continued. "Can’t wait to see them all lined up."

Paola Mayfield Shows Off HUGE Baby Bump!

90 Day Fiance stars Russ and Paola Mayfield are expecting their first child. Fans are thrilled for them.

Pao isn't hiding her growing baby bump -- she's been putting it on display.

Now, she's sharing a major update, and Russ is giving her a little help. Take a look:

Paola Mayfield is Glowing

Back in August, Paola flaunted her baby bump in a barely-there bikini in an instagram video.

Pao isn't just a reality star -- she is a fitness model by trade.

It really shows.

But though her abs may be incredible, her baby bump continues to grow and take an effect on her body.

Take a look at this update that she shared on Monday, October 1.

For October, her baby bump is now pumpkin-sized.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield Flaunt Pao's Bump

"Our protector," Paola captioned this photo. "We love you."

Obviously, Paola still looks great.

We'll get to see her profile in a moment, but can we talk about Russ' presence in the photo.

He's being careful to not overshadow Paola -- which is good.

Fans are there to see her and her baby bump, specifically.

Considering that it wasn't that long ago that fans perceived that Russ wanted Paola to cover up on Instagram, this looks like relationship progress.

Paola Mayfield Gives a Baby Bump Update

"My little angel is growing healthy and stronger," Paola captioned this pic. "I can't wait to meet you."

From this angle, you can really see that bump's growth, folks!

Some fitness models make fans and followers concerned with how little their bodies seem to outwardly change during pregnancy.

Paola is still very clearly fit, but her baby bump isn't hiding, either.

In this baby bump update (or "bumpdate," as absolutely no one is calling it), Pao's bump is visibly larger.

It also looks like her legs are a little wider -- which is by no means an insult, and is very healthy for both her and the baby.

Paola Mayfield Shows Her Baby Bump in a Yellow Dress

Paola and Russ have been married since 2013.

Previously, the two of them suffered a miscarriage. The tragedy was compounded when it led to some marital friction.

Pao felt that Russ was not there for her, emotionally, while Russ accused her of shutting him out.

That added to their preexisting issues -- mostly conflict over Russ' discomfort with Paola's modeling work.

Said dispute has been an ongoing storyline on 90 Day Fiance.

Fortunately, they worked through the fallout from the miscarriage and seem to be in a much better place in every way.

Paola Mayfield, Pregnant and Loving It

Paola has received some shaming, unfortunately, since her pregnancy.

Some people -- even those who might claim to be her "fans" -- think that pregnant folks should cover up their baby bumps.

Others hope that she quits modeling altogether now that she's becoming a mother.

Yes, there are still people in this world who have a real problem with working moms.

But these were the same people who were giving her a hard time for modeling before she was pregnant.

Paola Mayfield Shows Her Covered Baby Bump

When you look at this photo, from just a matter of weeks ago, you can really see how much Paola's body is changing.

This is such exciting news for her.

Some days, it seems that almost none of the couples on 90 Day Fiance get their happily ever after.

(Some are downright miserable -- and others turn out to be criminals)

We wish all the best to Paola and Russ and their baby boy.

Paola Mayfield FINALLY Answers Those Plastic Surgery Questions!

90 Day Fiance fans are still rejoicing at the news that Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield are expecting their first child. But that doesn't mean that they don't still have questions on other topics.

Paola is a fitness model, and a lot of people want to know about what work she's had done on her face and body.

Now, Pao is addressing those plastic surgery questions that fans have been asking -- and she's answering all of them.

Paola Mayfield Shows Her Covered Baby Bump

Paola shared a new glimpse at her ever-growing baby bump and answered some questions in the captions.

"Hi loves," Pao's post begins. "Some people have asked me if I have done something to my face."

That's a rude question, right?

Paola says that they keep asking "since I look so different since I got to the USA."

"And," Paola replies honestly. "The answer is yes and no."

Like so many answers, hers is a little complicated.

Paola Mayfield Stuns

Paola then begins her list of areas where she has and has not had work done.

"Lips?" she writes. "I fixed only one side of my upper lip that was uneven."

Hey, all of our meatsuits are purely luck-of-the-draw. There's no shame in getting yours touched up.

Paola then explains: "My lips look big or small depending on how hydrated I am!"

"So," she continues. "I need to drink a lot of water for them to look juicy."

That's a free beauty tip right there.

Paola Mayfield for Maxim's Finest

"Botox?" Paola continues. "Nope, and I’m really scared of getting into that world."

Botox of course uses a potentially deadly toxic to change a person's looks. Many people worry about the long-term effects that it could have, particularly upon the liver.

"If I want it to look younger or to change the shape of my face I will do it," Paola promises. "But for now I’m good with this face."

(She should be!)

"I think I have accomplished so much with this face," Pao writes. "That I’m keeping it!"

"I’m not against it," she says, referring to changing one's face. "And probably one day I will try it and I will definitely make a Vlog about it!"

Paola Mayfield, Pregnant and Loving It

Now Paola gets to the good stuff.

"My Boobs?" Pao says. "I did my boobs way before I came to the USA."

She then goes on to share that she's kind of regretting that now.

"And," she continues. "I regret it as I have big boobs before and now that I’m pregnant my genetics are popping out more."

"My Butt?" Paola writes. "That is one 100% hard work, dedication, and genetics!"

Good for her for reminding her fans that a huge part of anyone's looks, including body shape, is always going to be genetics.

Paola Mayfield Wants Your Attention

In addition to clarifying where she has and has not received a little medical assistance in her looks, she also addresses what technological resources she has or has not used to make her photos even better.

"Face-tune or photoshop?" she writes. "Nope."

Paola credits any changes to her face to "the magic of makeup and contouring."

She is absolutely right -- it does seem like magic. And to people who don't understand how makeup and contouring work, it can seem like the person's face is totally transformed. It really is an art form.

Paola wishes her fans and followers well, signing off by writing: "Have a wonderful and beautiful day!"

Paola Mayfield Claps Back at Mom-Shamers Over Exercising While Pregnant!

90 Day Fiance stars Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield are expecting their first child! This is exciting news, and Pao has been showing off her baby bump left and right.

But as much as fans may enjoy seeing her flaunt her baby bump in a barely-there bikini, others have been mom-shaming her for continuing to work out while pregnant.

Now, Paola is clapping back at her trolls.

Paola Mayfield Pregnant Picture

Concern-trolling is when people use alleged "concerns" that they have about someone else as an excuse to harass them.

One of the most common forms of this is mom-shaming, when, under the guise of worrying about a child's health (or, in this case, a baby who won't be born for months), people attack a woman's way of life.

So, what is Paola doing? Is she skydiving? Is she drinking? Joining a group of people who think that the Zika virus is a Deep State Illuminati conspiracy and offering her skin to every mosquito she sees?

No. Of course not.

Paola's "crime," in the eyes of these body-shamers, is exercising while pregnant.

Paola Mayfield: Look at My Baby Bump!

After Paola shared a glimpse of her pregnant body, looking as fit as ever even with the baby bump, she also let fans see her workout out a little.

While working out, she had weights attached to her waist. She is, after all, a fitness model.

So-called "fans" piled on the outrage, claiming that her activities were dangerous.

Instead of firing back directly, Pao shared a screenshot of someone else speaking up in her defense.

Take a look:

Paola Mayfield pregnant workout defense on IG

"I have never read such ignorance in a paragraph," the fan writes. "And I am so sorry for your heart."

"I am a public health professional with a background in holistic health," the person says. That's a little vague, but it's something.

"Exercising during pregnancy is totally recommended if the person was doing it before," the comment says.

We have heard this time and time again from medical professionals and from pregnant moms who are getting mom-shamed for no good reason.

"The baby actually received more oxygen and nutrients because the mother is more physically active," the commenter explains.

Paola Mayfield and Russ in the Water

That did not stop hordes of mom-shamers from commenting, both before and after she shared that.

"Be careful on working out when you're pregnant," wrote one person whom literally nobody had asked.

"I just saw a video of you pick up weights around your waist," another wrote even though it's not their business.

"Please," that comment continued. "Tell me that that was before you were p.g. I'm old school Hispanic and you should take it easy. Just my opinion."

Just your opinion ... that no one ever asked to hear.

Paola Mayfield, Pregnant and Loving It

Others had even more hateful things to say.

"You're a hoe then who baby Is it Jorge baby?" one hater wrote, referring to 90 Day Fiance star Jorge Nava. "lol but I thought it was Russ baby i guess Russ ain't the dad lol your married and pregnant but teasing men? That's wrong."

"Youre hot and all," commented another. "But your need for attention is kinda sad. Oh well, nice ass!"

These people are ... scum.

"She not a good role model," declares another comment. "She's teaching you to tease men when she's pregnant and married that's not good role model lol."

She literally just made a video of herself. If that is "teasing," that sounds like a problem with the viewer.

Boy on Tap

Someone else chimed in with an even wilder criticism.

"In touch agrees with Paola! Of course they do they also support with abortions!" one truly bonkers person wrote. "Let’s protect anything but the baby. That’s what’s really sad."

That same awful person continued: "Your life Paola. Paola gets angry because people are worried about the baby . Her motto is I do what I want regardless of who I hurt as long as I get that$$$$."

Pao did have plenty of fans who wrote pleasant things in her defense. Here's a great example:

"Pao can do whatever she chooses it's her body and it's her baby," a decent commenter wrote. "She's a very beautiful lady and she's loving the experience that her body is going thru. So let her enjoy it.."

Well said.

Paola Mayfield Flaunts Her Baby Bump in a Barely-There Bikini!

Last month, we learned something very exciting: Paola Mayfield and Russ are expecting their first child.

The 90 Day Fiance couple is overjoyed at the news, and Pao is taking to social media to show off her baby bump in a barely-there bikini.

In the video that we've included, see how her fit body has changed.

Paola mayfield baby bump bikini

Wearing a colorful and extremely minimal bikini, Paola Mayfield poses in front of the mirror while recording herself.

"Too many changes," Paola writes in her Instagram caption. "And I’m loving them all."

As you'll see in the video below (and in the .gifs that we've whipped up), Pao's body is indeed changing.

Though it's been just under a month since she and Russ shared the good news, she's already showing a baby bump.

But, as you might expect from an ab-tastic fitness model, her baby bump looks a little different than most.

Paola mayfield baby bump gif

The first baby bump pic that Paola and Russ shared was a little more traditional.

It was a still image. Paola was wearing a red dress that hugged her belly with its newfound curves.

In the photo, kneeling before her, was Russ, planting a gentle kiss on his wife's bump.

It was very, very sweet.

But considering that Paola is a fitness model who is no stranger to showing off her incredible form on social media, this new video is a little more like what fans expect.

Paola mayfield look at my baby bump

A little over a week ago, Paola and Russ revealed that they're expecting a boy.

Obviously, gender is a social construct that no ultrasound can magically predict, but we know what they mean.

This is huge news for the couple.

Even Paola's friend Juan, who has had serious doubts about Russ and her relationship with him, is rejoicing at the pregnancy announcement.

It's good to support your friends, even if you have doubts about their life choices.

Paola mayfield pregnant and loving it

Paola moved from Columbia to the U.S. because she and Russ had fallen in love.

Like all 90 Day Fiance couples, Russ and Pao had to deal with more problems than simply their relationship beginning long-distance.

When Paola moved to the U.S. to be with Russ, she lived with Russ ... in Oklahoma. It was not ideal.

She had no friends there and no career opportunities. And it was Oklahoma.

However, things changed for the better after Russ, being a supportive husband (despite his old-timey reservations about her career), moved to Miami with her.

Boy on tap

You might be distracted by Paola's baby bump or by the many visible parts of her body that are not her baby bump in this video.

But if you look at her face and the way that she's touching herself (on her abdomen, you pervs), you can see that she is really over the moon about her pregnancy.

By the way, in case anyone thinks of body-shaming her for maintaining her fit body while pregnant, please remember that different women carry weight, including baby weight, to different degrees.

Also, body-shaming someone for being slender is not morally superior to body-shaming someone for being large.

Congratulations again to Paola and Russ!

Russ and Paola Mayfield: We’re Having A…

Brace yourselves, 90 Day Fiance fans.

We now know exactly what the stork is bringing Russ and Paola Mayfield.

In a very sweet and revealing Instagram message, the veteran reality stars alerted fans to the gender of the baby growing inside of Paola.

Kiss for the Mayfields

Are you ready to find out?

Are you sure?

Okay. Here we go...


We'll let Paola explain in further detail, per her caption to the photos above and below:

We are having a BOY!!!!

I didn’t care if it was a boy or a girl, I just wanted a healthy baby and to be able to have it in my arms as soon as possible.

Of course I’m always rooting for a girl but a boy is a blessing as well and I know my husband is really excited!

This is an amazing experience now I can finally say I’m pregnant!!! I’m having a little boy.

Boy on Tap

The Mayfields announced their first child was on the way back in late July.

They did so via the following statement to Us Weekly:

"This is the most amazing feeling ever! We can’t believe we are going to be parents - we are already so in love with our baby.

"We are ready for this new adventure and we know it will bring us closer together.

"God has blessed us again, and this time, we are going as strong as our baby’s heartbeat."

The couple also included the following image with this adorable confirmation:

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield

News that Paola and Russ are expecting was met with surprise and also joy by fans of 90 Day Fiance.

We say surprise because there had been chatter as recently as a few weeks ago that the twosome's marriage was on the rocks, as they seemingly could never settle the tension that existed over Paola so often posing near-nude.

And we say joy because Paola suffered a miscarriage last year.

This tragedy took a toll on the relationship in a variety of ways.

But Russ has strongly defended his union every step of the way, telling off trolls on Instagram not long before this pregnancy news went viral.

Paola Mayfield Pregnant Picture

"Keep hating and commenting to better your dull lives because your opinions are meaningless in my eyes," Russ said at this time, pulling nary a punch and concluding:

"You’re only hurting yourself hiding behind your keyboard. Which proves nothing to you or me...

"I am proud of where I come from,. And where I am going and that’s with the love of my life."

So there you have it. Well said.

Congratulations on the impending little boy, Russ and Paola!

Paola Mayfield Shares Sweet Baby Bump Pic, Emotional Message to Fans

Paola Mayfield has made it official:

Two body parts of hers are growing these days.

As previously announced, the 90 Day Fiance star is expecting her first child with husband Russ, as the reality stars themselves confirmed this blessed news just over a week ago on Instagram.

Paola Mayfield Pregnant Picture

Naturally, as a result, Mayfield's belly is getting bigger by the month.

But the TLC personality has also now made it clear via social media that something aside from her stomach has increased in size of late:

Her heart.

Indeed, Paola just shared a new, precious picture (above) of Russ kissing her baby bump, adding as a lengthy caption:

"We are so thankful and happy for each one of your beautiful messages! We weren’t expecting so much love and so much support. Thank you all so much."

She then referenced some of the marital strife that she has been through over the past year or so.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield

"You guys know all that Russ and I went through the past months," Mayfield said in her caption, continuing in further detail:

"I was angry and devastated after all you can never completely recover from something like that but today we have a reason to smile and to be happy, a reason to move forward and to be the best we can.

"I wish I could keep up and like all your comments from my last post. I love you all so very much!

"Thank you for living this amazing experience with us and for showing us so much love."

Mayfield is mostly referencing a miscarriage she suffered last year in this passage.

Paola Mayfield and Russ

As is the case with so many couples that go through this awful experience, Russ and Paola nearly hit a breaking point due to the tragedy.

Paola made it pretty clear on air and in a few statements that she though Russ wasn't there for her in the way she needed following the devastating news.

Meanwhile, Russ thought his wife was trying to shut him out.

It's never been clear just how close the stars were to splitting, but their relationship hadn't seemed entirely stable even before the miscarriage.

The main storyline surrounding the Mayfields during their time on 90 Day Finance had been Paola's penchant for posing nearly-naked and Russ' unease over his wife showing the world such revealing assets.

This was a legitimate issue between the husband and wife.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Valentines Day 2018

It became so well known and questions about their relationship so pervasive that both sides of the romance semi-recently addressed their status online.

"He accepts me," Paola told fans in early July of Russ. "Loves me and respects me the way I am and lets me work even when he is not 100% comfortable."

Russ, for his part, also made it evident a short bit ago that he loves Paola and is committed to Paola and people need to stop claiming anything to the contrary.

"I accept and am proud of my wife for the beautiful woman she is," Russ has said, adding:

"I am tired of the comments from the marriage 'experts' stating I deserve better, my wife doesn’t respect me, or she only loves me for my money and so on and so forth...

"I am proud of where I come from. And where I am going and that’s with the love of my life."

And now also with a precious bundle of joy! 


Paola Mayfield: Juan Has to Accept My Pregnancy or He Can GTFO!!

Time and time again, Paola Mayfield's friend, Juan, has clashed with her husband, Russ. Juan has made no secret that he objects to their relationship.

So how is he taking the happy news that Paola is pregnant with Russ' baby?

Paola suggests that it ultimately doesn't matter -- because she's pregnant, and Juan just has to accept it.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield

Paola Mayfield tells Us Weekly that she broke the news of her pregnancy to Juan just a day before it went public.

Pao explains what she said to Juan: "I told him, ‘Look, this is gonna happen, so I don’t want you to find out through someone else.'"

That makes sense.

She also describes his reaction: "And he was like, ‘I’m about to cry.'"

But ... perhaps not in the way that viewers of 90 Day Fiance might expect. These were happy tears.

"'Even though I know I’m not a big fan of Russ,'" Paola says that Juan said. "'This is amazing because I love you and I know what you’ve been through, so I’m really happy for you.'"

Paola Mayfield and Russ in the Water

That is so sweet of him to say!

Paola admits that she was "surprised" by how positive his reaction was, knowing that this baby will tie her forever to the man whom he believes to be too controlling.

So, will this baby help -- or force -- Juan and Russ to mend fences?

"I want to believe [it will]," Pao says. "But he has to accept it no matter what."

Juan can't just wish away this pregnancy news -- or her marriage. Even though he's been trying with the latter.

"There’s nothing he can do about it," Paola says very directly. "And I don’t want the negativity around us because we’re going to be parents."

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Valentines Day 2018

So, in other words, she's leery of having him come around.

But she says that she's not banning Juan from visiting.

"I’m not gonna say no," Paola says about a potential visit from Juan. "But he’s definitely going to need to be more respectful if he’s gonna wanna hang around."

More respectful towards Russ. Or, at least, more polite and less confrontational.

"[He needs to be] more civil, cordial," Pao laments. "That’s all I’ve asked from him."

Russ Mayfield and Paola Mayfield in the Water

Earlier this week, Paola gushed about her pregnancy news.

"This is the most amazing feeling ever!" Paola announced. "We can’t believe we are going to be parents —-- we are already so in love with our baby."

That is so touching!

"We are ready for this new adventure," Paola said at the time. "And we know it will bring us closer together."

Which Juan will just have to accept, as she said.

Paola gushed: "God has blessed us again, and this time, we are going as strong as our baby’s heartbeat!"

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield: Pregnant?

Of course, just because Juan is totally onboard with Baby Mayfield doesn't mean that everyone will be.

First of all, both Paola and Russ have plenty of haters. Some agree with Juan that Russ is too controlling and tries to make Paola conform to his life.

(He's gotten so much better about accepting her career, though)

Others feel that Paola should abandon Miami and her modeling career and worship the feet of her lord husband (or whatever) and be grateful to live a quiet life in Oklahoma.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Breakfast Time

For the record, Russ has defended Paola against these trolls.

Finally, there will be another wave of haters with whom Russ and Pao have less experience -- pregnancy shamers.

Everything from the cereal Paola eats to the size and shape of her baby bump will be given intense scrutiny by social media commenters. Ugh.

People with dynamite figures like hers -- and abs for days like hers -- often have smaller baby bumps.

There are trolls out there who live to tell fitness-oriented women that their wombs will be crushed by their abs or whatever. You just have to ignore it.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield: Expecting First Child!

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield have spent the past few weeks insisting that they're still together.

Constantly facing questions about their status, the 90 Day Fiance stars have sworn that everything is good and positive and now they have a new and exciting way to prove it...

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield

... Paola is pregnant!!!!!!

And you don't need to simply take our word for it, either.

Just listen to what the TLC personalities themselves have to say.

"This is the most amazing feeling ever! We can’t believe we are going to be parents - we are already so in love with our baby,” the stars tell Us Weekly.

“We are ready for this new adventure and we know it will bring us closer together.

"God has blessed us again, and this time, we are going as strong as our baby’s heartbeat!"

This baby will be the first for Russ and Paola, but that statement does come with a caveat.

Paola Mayfield and Russ

The couple revealed earlier this year that Paola had suffered a fairly recent miscarriage.

This tragedy was actually featured on an episode of 90 Day Fiance, as a doctor explained to the model that the miscarriage was due to her having type O-negative blood that was also Rh-negative.

This is a rare condition, but it's one that a doctor can manage for a future pregnancy once he's aware it exists.

The very sad situation created a rift between the Mayfields, who got married in October 2013.

Paola thought that Russ was not there for her in the way she needed following the devastating news; while Russ thought his wife was trying to shut him out.

The other major obstacle Russ and Paola thave run into centers around the latter's penchant for showing off her body.

The Mayfields

Russ was raised in a more conservative manner and has admittedly taken issue with Paola's topless shoots.

But he insited in a July 7 Instagram post that this doesn't mean he isn't committed and in love.

"I am tired of the comments from the marriage ‘experts’ stating I deserve better, my wife doesn’t respect me, or she only loves me for my money,” Mayfield captioned a photo of himself kissing his wife.

He elaborated, growing a bit angry:

“The mere glimpse of our lives shown doesn’t always show our best moments but impressions and impressions from our cultural differences and how we are coming together as an even stronger couple. …

"I am proud of where I come from and where I am going and that’s with the love of my life."

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Valentines Day 2018

That sounds fair, doesn't it?

Reality television shows certainly are known to edit content at times in order to increase the drama.

This doesn't mean the Mayfields haven't clashed over their belief systems on occasion.

But their marriage does not appear to be in trouble.

Part 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? airs Sunday, July 29, at 8/7c on TLC.

Congratulations to Paola and Russ!

Russ Mayfield SLAMS Critics of Paola’s Modeling Pics

90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? star Russ Mayfield has had it up to here with so-called fans who want to shame his marriage.

Recently, Paola Mayfield clarified that she's still with Russ, and she really let some followers have it for their negative takes on their relationship and on her career.

Now, Russ is following in her footsteps and telling followers exactly how he feels about their unsolicited commentary.

Russ Mayfield and Paola Mayfield in the Water

Russ begins: "There’s much more to me than what you see on tv."

That is usually the case! Reality television works through intelligible, often simple, storylines.

The presence of cameras alone is going to impact a narrative, and editing does the rest.

"I’m honestly not the jealous type," Russ insists.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Valentines Day 2018

He is famously uncomfortable with Pao's modeling work.

Russ does admit: "I’d had preferred to keep my wife’s curves a mystery, especially when it comes to the lusting creeps out there."

That last part sounds more like he's protective of her.

Admittedly, the bit about her mysterious curves sounds more like guarding her jealously, though.

Paola Mayfield Stuns

"I accept and am proud of my wife for the beautiful woman she is," Russ continues.

Good for him. And for her.

Russ makes it clear that he has no doubts of her fidelity, saying: "And she’s all mine"

"But like most relationships," Russ says. "We find ourselves with differing opinions at times and love costs and takes effort for it to work."

That is why they argue. Many couples argue, unfortunately.

"I am tired of the comments from the marriage “experts” stating I deserve better, my wife doesn’t respect me, or she only loves me for my money and so on and so forth," Russ says.

Russ Mayfield and Paola Mayfield, July 4 2018

Russ goes on to remind followers that 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? cannot, by its very nature, show the whole story of his marriage.

"The mere glimpse of our lives shown doesn’t always show our best moments," Russ writes.

What viewers see, Russ says, are "but impressions and expressions from our cultural differences and how we are coming together as an even stronger couple."

That's a beautiful and powerful story! It's just not the whole story.

"If I or my story bores you and creating a mocking meme or mocking comment of me and/or my wife is how you make yourself feel better about your unshared and perfect life," he says.

To those people, Russ says: "well thank you for your benightedness as it only spices us up even more."

Paola Mayfield and Russ in the Water

Yes, Russ wrote "benightedness" unironically. His diction in the post is very goofy at times.

"So go on," Russ says. "And keep hating and commenting to better your dull lives because your opinions are meaningless in my eyes."

That's an understandable point of view, but perhaps not polite. But he wasn't really trying to be.

"But you’re only hurting yourself hiding behind your keyboard," Russ warns. "Which proves nothing to you or me."

That's true for every troll.

"Especially when I have yet to meet someone to end a conversation with me with such nescience and mockery," Russ says.

Again, his vocabulary is absolutely correct but does not quite match the intended tone of his post. The results are worth a chuckle or two.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Breakfast Time

"I am proud of where I come from," writes the Oklahoma native. "And where I am going and that’s with the love of my life."

That is very precious.

Russ reminds followers that Paola is his wife, "whom I love for better or for worse."

For better, surely.

"I am not perfect," Russ admits. "And only look for support from my followers, not hypocritical and judgmental ignorance seeking ‘like’ attention."

If he wanted marital advise, he'd probably go elsewhere than social media.

Paola Mayfield Wants Your Attention

It's interesting that Russ singles out the people who shame Paola and think that Russ is the good guy when the couple argues.

We so often see people shaming Russ for being (seemingly, on camera) insecure about his wife's modeling work.

But sometimes it is easier to see yourself get hate than it is to see people say negative things about someone whom you love.

That is, perhaps, why he was lashing out at those who speak ill of his beautiful and talented wife.

90 Day Fiance: Are Paola and Russ Still Together?

Gorgeous 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? star Paola Mayfield is answering some nagging questions that followers can't help but ask.

(Though curiously, she leaves one major question off of the list)

The biggest and most important query is whether or not she and Russ are still together and whether they've finally stopped fighting over Paola's job.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Valentines Day 2018

Pao starts her post with: "I hope this photo gets your attention!"

You'll see the photo in question in a moment. Suffice it to say that she was successful.

"Frequently asked questions: Did my husband ever get over me taking photos like this?" Paola says.

This is just the first of several FAQs that she wishes to address.

"Well," she answers. "Yes and no but it doesn’t affect him as much as some of you."

Believe it or not, Paola actually gets hate sometimes from fans who think that she should abandon her career to just, like, iron the curtains of her lord husband's house.

"He accepts me," Paola says. "Loves me and respects me the way I am and lets me work even when he is not 100% comfortable."

Paola Mayfield Wants Your Attention

"We fight and we make up," Paola says. "Girls talk like never they fight with their spouses, talking about me not being a “good wife” just because the gigs I take are 'too sexy'"

Some people don't argue with their loved ones, but those are definitely a minority.

"But let’s be honest," Paola continues. "None of you have seen photos of me completely naked or rumors of me being unfaithful to my husband."

Definitely not! Though there is of course nothing wrong with posing nude.

Paola writes: "My only 'sin' is my work."

It is good that Pao put sin in quotation marks, because, even if you believe that there is such a thing as sin, it's hard to imagine that looking pretty in photos qualifies as one.

"God will be the only one judging me," Paola says. "Not wannabe perfects!"

Russ Mayfield and Paola Mayfield, July 4 2018

Paola cites another question: "Why do I not end up my friendship with Juan?"

Russ had some insecurities about his wife's friendship with Juan, leading some fans to absurdly demand that she end a friendship.

"It is easy to say it," Paola says. "But you wouldn't call it a friendship if you don't care about someone after 16 years of friendship and without trying to make it work."

She's right!

"I don't have many friends," Paola continues. "Maybe because I don't trust people that easy and I am ok with that but giving up part of my life and past isn't easy for me."

"I love my husband but I also love my friends," Paola explains.

That's good. Any boyfriend or husband who insists that you stop having friends is toxic.

"My life didn't end when I got married," Paola explains. "it was the beginning of a new chapter."

Paola Mayfield and Russ in the Water

Last but not least, Paola addresses questions about "My 'delusional' modeling and acting career. This is one is easy."

"I really don’t know why people care so much if I model or act at my age," she admits.

For the record, Paola is drop-dead gorgeous. But that's beside the point. Even if she weren't, it would still be her choice to model.

Paola asks and answers: "Is it your business if I succeed or fail? No."

"Is it your life?" Paola asks, before answering: "No."

She's right.

"I'm living my life to the fullest," Paola writes. "And I'm having so much fun with all that I do!"

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Breakfast Time

"My conscience is clear and clean," Paola writes, followed by a red heart emoji.

Paola then says that she is "just happy that I'm doing great and I’m chasing my dreams."

Good for her!

As we mentioned, there was no effort to address lingering questions about whether Paola Mayfield is pregnant.

But though she is a reality star, that's still her business.

Perhaps it was so far from her mind that she didn't even think to include it on the list.


90 Day Fiance: Is Paola Mayfield Pregnant?!

90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? is back! And that means that viewers are once again treated to the lives of Paola Mayfield and her husband Russ.

Yes, they're still together, but that doesn't mean that everything is perfect.

And fans are scrambling after this week's episode seemed to drop a major hint. Is Pao pregnant?!

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield: Pregnant?

Russ and Paola have been up to so much more than apologizing for their distasteful couples' costumes. But not all of it is good.

Unfortunately, Paola's grandmother is battling cancer, and so this 90 Day Fiance couple headed back to Columbia -- for the first time in four years -- to be with her family.

 During her visit, which was captured by TLC's cameras, Pao's mom seemed to say something to her about pregnancy.

It's not easy to descipher what her mother's exact words were, but the topic had some fans jumping to conclusions.

One took to social media, writing:

"I was just watching the ending of the episode when your mom asked about pregnancy..."

This fan, like many viewers, wasn't sure of the exact wording.

"What's the story with that?"

Good question.

Paola Mayfield Stuns

Other fans, however, cast doubt on that.

They pointed to examples of things that no pregnant woman should be doing.

"I don’t think she’s pregnant because I am doubtful if she was that she would go on a motorcycle ride."

One even brought up the idea that perhaps Paola is very much not pregnant.

"It almost [alluded] to the fact that she may have trouble in that area."

if that is the case, this could be a very sensitive topic.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Breakfast Time

Now, if Paola was pregnant all of those months ago, she would probably be showing now, right?

None of her recent Instagram photos show the slightest hint of a baby bump.

So ... it may be that she is posting older photos as if they were newer. That is how Kylie Jenner duped people for a little while.

It could also be the case that, as an extremely fit woman with incredible abs, she is less likely to show a baby bump.

We are not shaming women for the natural changes that pregnancy thrusts upon a body, merely pointing out that "fit moms" are known for hiding baby bumps behind a wall of abs.

However, the simplest explanation may be that Pao is not pregnant.

Paola Mayfield, Beach Booty

Paola Mayfield's fans and followers did shower her with comments about the plot of the episode itself.

"Seen your grandmother was so emotional! You are definitely a strong woman with great goals and focus."

The grandma storyline hit home with a lot of folks.

"By the way pao is grandma still a live I hope so she is in my prayers just be strong."

Fans know that episodes are filmed months before they air, and they hope that everything is okay.

"You have me over here bawling."

That message included three tearful emojis.

"Paola, seeing you with your Grandma brought tears to my eyes. I could not hold it in. I can tell how much you care for her."

That person, clearly deeply touched by Pao's family's pain, added:

"I still have both of my Grandmas and it has reminded me to spend as much time with them as I can. 'Never lose your heart'"

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Date Night

Paola Mayfield is hot enough to climb the ranks of a Maxim contest. She's hot enough that she makes her living as a model.

But even though she's gorgeous and though viewers have come to know her as an entertainer on reality television, it is important to hold onto a sense of perspective.

Paola is a real person with real feelings and a family. Their medical circumstances are beyond anyone's control -- even TLC's.

But being on camera means making certain sacrifices -- she can't blurt out the answers to many questions on social media. Not until the right episodes air.

Please keep that in mind as you comment, whether it's about her abuela or whether you wonder if she is pregnant.
