Who is Natalie Mordovtseva from ‘90 Day Fiancé’?

Natalie was one of the couples featured in 90 Day Fiancé Season 7. At the time, she and her fiancé, Mike Youngquist, got engaged after three months, but the couples’ mindsets were quite different from one another. Natalie immediately pressured Mike to give her a baby, and his views on religion and aliens gave her pause. When he visited Natalie in Ukraine, things did not go well. Right before Mike headed to the airport for his flight home, Natalie took her engagement ring off and tossed it in his suitcase.

Fans next saw the two in 90 Day Fiancé Season 8. Natalie had finally been approved for her K1 Visa, but Mike wasn’t ready to jump right into marriage. Throughout the season, the two had several arguments ranging from Mike’s lack of desire to lead a healthier lifestyle to Natalie’s insistence on getting her engagement ring back. Mike gave fans the biggest shock of the season when he called off their wedding moments before Natalie was supposed to walk down the aisle.
