Kobe is eager to meet his son, Koban

Finally, Emily and Kobe are together again after being separated for over two years. It’s Kobe’s first day in the United States, and he’s more than eager to meet his son, Koban, for the first time in real life.

After getting picked up from the airport, Kobe tells Emily, “I can’t really believe this is happening like this.”

Emily says, “I cannot believe it’s been two years.” Kobe is excited to be with his fiancée after these two difficult years. However, he’s most excited about meeting his son for the first time. He tells the cameras, “I’m finally going to meet my son, Koban, which is something I’ve been looking forward for over two years.”

So when Emily tells him that she wants to have a date night before he goes and meets Koban, he’s not excited. He tells the cameras, “How is this possible? I feel like she’s being selfish.”

However, after seeing how badly Emily wanted alone time on their first night, he agreed to have one date night. Then they would meet Koban the next day.

In the preview for the upcoming May 8 episode of 90 Day Fiancé Season 9 (via ET), Kobe can finally meet his son after all of this time. He says, “This is a moment, you know, I live for. I’ve waited for this moment for like 17 months. Finally, I get to see my son.” Check out the clip below (via Reddit):

In the emotional clip, Kobe is introduced to Koban, but the baby is shy. After waiting for him to warm up to him, Kobe bursts out into tears at the sheer happiness of being able to be with his son. He says, “Oh my god, he’s so cute.”

Kobe tells the cameras, “Getting to meet Koban for the first time. I couldn’t take it. He was just so sweet. I’m a dad just because of him. It was just a very beautiful moment.”

Why did Kobe not meet his son until now?

There were many reasons for Kobe not being able to meet his son sooner. His K-1 visa was delayed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Also, due to border closures, Emily could not come to visit him in Cameroon, which is located in central Africa.

After his visa was approved, Kobe was finally able to move to the US to be with Emily and Koban. The former underwear model is ready to give up the bachelor lifestyle he had in Cameroon and is prepared to be a husband to Emily and a father to Koban.

It was emotional for fans to watch Kobe be able to meet his son for the first time. 90 Day Fiancé fans are rooting for this couple to make it. However, Emily and Kobe’s journey is just starting. They now have 90 days to get married.
