90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days couple, Ximena and Mike are finally together after months of talking online. However, their relationship has exhibited tons of red flags. Here are the biggest ones so far.
Ximena got pregnant by her ex-boyfriend in prison
On the premiere episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 5, Ximena revealed that she is still in love with her ex-boyfriend, who got her pregnant in prison.
The single mother of two boys said she purposefully got pregnant by her incarcerated boyfriend. She said, “Juan David is 9, and Harold Steven is 3.” She said, “Juan David’s ad was a one-night stand, and that was it. And Harold Steven’s dad is in Jail.”
Ximena explained, “He wanted to defend his uncle and acted without thinking. And so that’s what he’s paying for now.”
She revealed that she met her ex on Facebook, and after talking for four to five months, she visited him in jail. She said, “And I love him… I did love him very much.”
90 Day Fiancé fans were shocked that she “wanted to have a child” with her prisoner ex. By her second visit to the jail, she was pregnant. Ximena said, “I would put my feet up for me to actually get pregnant.”
The 90 Day Fiancé star said that her ex is still very present in her son’s life, and they “communicate almost every day.”
She said that because her ex will be in jail for a long time, she wants someone to support her now. That’s where Mike comes in.
Ximena lied to Mike about not being able to have children
After a few days into Mike’s visit to her native Colombia, Ximena spoke to her sister, Wendy, about the idea of Mike proposing. Wendy asked Ximena, “Does Mike know that you can’t have kids?” She shakes her head no.
In the clip, Ximena tells the cameras, “I know that Mike wants a child, but I can’t have more kids.” She explains, “I suffered a lot with my two deliveries because to have a child by Caesarean is the worst pain a mother could go through.”
She said, “So, I decided to get operated. And they cut my tubes and burned them. So that I definitely couldn’t have more kids.”
Wendy asks her sister what Mike will feel about her choice not to have any more kids. Ximena says, “I can imagine that it’s going to be a hard blow for him because he’s excited to be a dad.” She says, “That does hurt me a lot.”
Ximena admits that she thinks it’s a mistake that she didn’t tell Mike about her inability to have children sooner. She says, “But I wanted him to come to Colombia, so we could meet each other first, and to tell him in person, not on the phone.”
When Ximena told Mike, he was very hurt that she didn’t tell him sooner. 90 Day Fiancé fans think that it was a red flag that not only did Ximena give false hope to Mike, but that she decided to be intimate with him first was also a red flag.
Ximena is living off Mike’s money
In Colombia, Ximena is a manicurist. However, since the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, work has been hard for her to find. She says, “It’s a super difficult situation. And if it weren’t for Mike, I can’t imagine how it would have been for me and my boys.”
During the tour of her apartment, Ximena shows off the things that Mike bought her. He bought her a couch, a dining room set, a refrigerator, a stove, a blender, a food processer, and a coffee maker.
Ximena also revealed that Mike has been sending her money for daily living expenses. She said, “He gives me money for food, rent. I stay afloat with what Mike contributes to me.”
She admits that Mike is different from the usual type of guy she goes for. She says, “Mike isn’t physically handsome, but from the heart he is.”
Even Mike’s friends and family are worried that Mike is being used by Ximena for money and possibly a green card. This is a red flag to most people in Mike’s life because they don’t want to see him getting hurt.
So far in 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 5, there have been plenty of red flags in Ximena and Mike’s relationship.
