Elizabeth and Andrei are one of the fan-favorite couples, who appeared on the fifth season and are back on ‘Happily Ever After’ season 5. Curious to know the status of their marriage? We have got your back!
Elizabeth and Andrei: 90 Day Fiance Journey
Florida-resident Elizabeth Potthast found Moldovian-born Andrei Castravet on a dating app and the duo began dating. The two got along well and first met during Elizabeth’s 2016 trip to Dublin, where Andrei worked as a bouncer. Elizabeth and Andrei fell hard for each other and decided to take their relationship to the next level. A few days later, Andrei moved to Florida to be with his love. Although there wasn’t much problem between the couple, Elizabeth’s family was skeptical of Andrei’s intentions as they feared he wanted to marry Elizabeth for her money.
This led to a lot of friction between Andrei and Elizabeth’s father, Chuck. Andrei’s possessive nature was also an issue among Elizabeth’s friends and family, who believed he wanted a docile wife who would adapt herself according to his desires. They advised Elizabeth to be very sure before taking the leap of faith. To test their bond, Chuck refused to provide any financial aid to the pair. The couple decided to marry so that Andrei could begin earning and prove his worth to Elizabeth’s family.
During Elizabeth’s bachelorette party in Miami, she went to a night club and had a great time dancing with some strippers. When Andrei found out, he caused a huge scene but things went back to normal and the couple tied the knot in December 2017.
Are Elizabeth and Andrei Still Together?
Fans would be delighted to know that Elizabeth and Andrei are still going strong. Not just that, they are now parents to an adorable baby girl, Eleanor. Nearly a year into their marriage, in October 2018, Elizabeth felt light-headed during a road trip and found out that she is pregnant. The couple reluctantly broke the news to Elizabeth’s father, who warm-heartedly embraced the news and was even present at the gender-reveal party. On January 23, 2019, Elizabeth gave birth to a beautiful daughter, whom they named Eleanor Louise Castravet.
In ‘90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After’ season 5, we learn that despite taking truck-driving lessons, Andrei has chosen to remain unemployed. They recently moved to a new place and are struggling with funds. Therefore, being the sole bread-winner of the family, Elizabeth has to work very hard. She is starting to feel exhausted and it’s affecting her mental health but she has chosen to not create an issue just for the sake of their marriage.
The spin-off also showcases how Andrei and Chuck still don’t get along. He gets defensive and rude the moment Elizabeth’s family advises him to share financial responsibility. At Chuck’s birthday party, Andrei shocks everyone, including his wife, by announcing that the couple is getting married for the second time, this time in Moldova, in a month. Elizabeth gets irked after Andrei pulls the malicious stunt and spoils her father’s birthday.
Well, the couple has managed to dodge every issue that has hindered their path as they’re still very much together. Apart from working for her father, Elizabeth is also an influencer now. She uses her Instagram profile to endorse various products to her followers, in collaboration with top lifestyle brands.
Andrei is still a stay-at-home father and spends most of his time taking care of their lovely daughter.
