’90 Day Fiancé’ Star Deavan Clegg Dishes On Drascilla’s Bio Dad, Asks Fans For Space
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way couple Jihoon Lee and Deavan Clegg are a new fan favorite — both to love and to hate on. Some fans have been ripping apart Deavan Clegg for her parenting choices lately when it comes to her daughter Drascilla, while others have been very supportive of her relationship with Jihoon, who seems to be stepping up as a father figure.
Recently, when discussing Drascilla and her own past with fans, things hit a little too close to home. A fan asked Clegg about Drascilla’s biological father, and Clegg’s response had some fans feeling sympathy for the young mother.
A surprise pregnancy
90 Day Fiancé star Deavan Clegg is a Salt Lake City single mother. The 22-year-old found herself looking for a relationship using an international dating service. Apparently, the two chatted every day for three months until they actually met up.
Jihoon Lee is a 29-year-old used-phone dealer from South Korea. At first, he wasn’t sure that Clegg was real. “I was kind of suspicious before leaving,” said Jihoon. “I thought it might be a scam. I even suspected illegal organ trafficking. I thought they might take my organs.”
According to Clegg, the two conceived the first night they spent together. “The day Jihoon was actually leaving for Korea, I did not feel good. Six positive tests later, I’m pregnant. I instantly assumed I’d never see Jihoon again,” she explained.
However, when Lee found out Clegg was pregnant, he stepped up and reached out to her, suggesting they get married.
Welcoming baby Taeyang
Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee welcomed baby Taeyang into the world on April 11. Taeyang recently made his first reality television debut, with his birth featured on the August 12 episode of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way.
Clegg told Us Weekly that Taeyang’s birth was one of her scariest moments to date. “Having Taeyang was one of the scariest, most rewarding experiences of my life. Him being in the NICU was the most difficult experience I had to face in my life,” explained Clegg.
Meanwhile, Jihoon Lee has been stepping up to the plate as a father figure for Drascilla, though he’s nervous about being a first-time father. “I’m very happy. I have no skills because I am a first-time father, but I will learn,” said Lee. He added, “I hope to become the best father I can be. I’m nervous but I know I will be the best father.”
What about Drascilla’s bio dad?
90 Day Fiancé fans have noticed that there have been no shots of Drascilla’s father on the show, featured on Instagram, or even really mentioned at all. As a result, Clegg has been receiving questions about Drascilla’s dad, often via Instagram.
Clegg recently posted to her Instagram story to address fan questions about Drascilla’s father. She wrote, “People are messaging and commenting asking where Drascilla’s bio father is.” However, fans were probably not prepared for what came next — and Clegg’s reveal probably left some of them feeling guilty for asking.
Clegg went on to write, “This is a sensitive subject and I would appreciate it if everyone would stop. I escaped a very abusive relationship and I am recovering from it, so please stop asking, it will be addressed later.”
