‘90 Day Fiancé’ is a documentary-style reality show that focuses on couples who are determined to make their relationship work despite their differences. Okay, but what makes it different? Well, one-half of each couple belongs to a country other than the US and has applied for/or obtained a K-1 visa, which means he/she has got only 90 days to marry his/her American partner or leave the US.
Season 7 of ‘90 Day Fiancé’ premiered on TLC on November 3, 2019. And while some couples were in two minds about tying the knot, Emily and Sasha took the plunge and got married. Not just that, the two have an adorable son, Dave. Now, you might be wondering if they’re still together or have they split? Well, we have the answer to your questions. But before that, let’s take a look at their bittersweet journey in ‘90 Day Fiancé.’
Emily and Sasha: 90 Day Fiance Journey
Emily Larina (29) and Sasha Larin (32) met at a fitness gym in Russia. Originally from Portland, Oregon, Emily moved to Russia for a teaching job. Since Sasha was her personal trainer, they spent a lot of time together and began dating in June, 2016.
Sasha proposed Emily on an elevator in February, 2017.
After a few years, Emily got pregnant, and that is when they decided to apply for the K-1 visa, and move to the US. To make sure Sasha could witness the birth of their baby boy, Emily chose to give birth in Russia.
However, it wasn’t always rainbows and butterflies for them. Sasha is already a father of two sons, whom he shares with his two ex-wives. And on the show, we got to witness a very awkward interaction between a heavily pregnant Emily and Sasha’s first ex-wife, Masha, who expressed that Sasha would ultimately leave her for a wife no. 4. And unfortunately, Emily’s parents seemed to agree. Even after Sasha’s K-1 visa was approved, they couldn’t leave for America as Sasha forgot to apply for their son’s Russian passport. This led to some friction between the two, but they managed to get past it.
Upon reaching America, Emily and Sasha moved to her sister Betsy’s apartment for a while. And it was a trying time in their relationship, as Betsy did not approve of Sasha. She was very vocal about her resentment towards Sasha, who criticized her eating choices and pushed Emily to lose the baby weight. Betsy even asked Emily to take a step back as she feared Sasha would leave her.
After some speed-bumps, Betsy gave her blessing for their marriage after Sasha promised her that he would be the best husband to Emily. Due to financial constraints, the couple had a low-key wedding in Newport, Oregon, which was filmed for the show. Check out the sweet picture below.
Are Emily and Sasha Still together?
Emily and Sasha are still very much together and living happily with their son in Portland, Oregon. She is still head over heels for Sasha and regularly posts updates of her life with her man. Here’s a picture of the couple, celebrating six months of marriage.
She also feels TLC tried to paint Sasha as the villain he isn’t, which led to fans spewing hate on him and calling him names. Here’s a picture of the two, enjoying their dinner date, on February 5, 2020. Check out the caption wherein she takes a stand for her husband against the “unjustified” hate.
To sum it all up, here’s a heartwarming birthday post that Emily dedicated to Sasha. When a user called her “obsessive” in the comments section, Emily clapped back at her, saying, “Sasha doesn’t post a ton on IG anyway. Yes, I talk a lot about those I love on my profile! Yes, I’ve been obsessed for over 3.5 years because he is the best partner for me! If that’s “ewww” I suggest you hit unfollow.”
It feels good to see Emily and Sasha going so strong after overcoming all the hurdles. More power to them.
