90 Day Fiancé Season 8 couple Jovi Dufren and Yara Zaya give an update to fans on 90 Day Diaries Season 3. Here’s everything we know about how Jovi, Yara, and their one-year-old daughter, Mylah handled Hurricaine Ida.
Jovi and Yara flee Louisiana because of Hurricane Ida
During the March 28 episode of 90 Day Diaries, Jovi and Yara pack their bags and leave after Category five Hurricane Ida threatens their home in New Orleans, Louisiana. Jovi tells the cameras, “We’re packing up, and we are getting out of town. We’re going to head to Dallas.”
The 90 Day Diaries episode shows Jovi and Yara traveling to Dallas back in August 2021, when the storm was expected to hit Louisiana. The 90 Day Fiancé couple decided to stay away until the storm passed and the power was turned back on.
Jovi and Yara celebrate Mylah’s 1st birthday
Eight days into their stay at Dallas, Yara and Jovi celebrated Mylah’s 1st birthday. Instead of the big birthday party that they had planned, they made do with what they had. They sang happy birthday to Mylah with a plate of her favorite food — cheetos.
While it’s not the birthday they expected, Yara promised to have a proper birthday party for Mylah once they got back to New Orleans.
Despite the hickups that the hurricane caused, Jovi and Yara’s marriage is going well. Jovi said, “Yara and I have been doing pretty good lately, but anybody in our position, we have obstacles.”
Yara is waiting for her Green Card to visit Ukraine
Since Yara left Ukraine to be with Jovi on her K-1 (fiancé) visa, she hasn’t been allowed to return back to visit her family until she gets her Green Card. Yara explained, “My green card was delayed a already so many times. And now it’s delayed again.”
She continued, “With my Green Card, I will be able to go home and see my mom.” Yara revealed that her mom still hasn’t met her granddaughter in person yet. Now the next hurdle that stands in their way is that the Green Card office will likely be closed due to the damages that Hurricane Ida caused.
As of now, there’s no news when Yara will be able to visit her family in Ukraine. 90 Day Diaries airs Mondays on TLC and discovery+.
