Why Libby & Andrei’s Baby Announcement Is Controversial

Libby and Andrei’s second baby announcement on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? is controversial due to the lack of inclusion of the family.

In 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? season 7, episode 11, Libby Potthast and Andrei Castravet made their official post on Instagram for their second baby, but the announcement is controversial to many 90 Day Fiancé viewers. The feud between Andrei and Libby’s family has existed since their first appearance in the franchise and is consistently a part of their storyline. Although the couple has been married for years, the fighting continues since the Potthast’s always find something wrong with Andrei.


When Libby and Andrei discovered they were having a second child together, they decided to keep it a secret until the baby was further along. The couple also kept it secret because of issues with 90DF‘s Andrei possibly being deported, and they did not want to let the family know yet. In a touching moment, before they announced on social media, Libby and Andrei revealed the news to her father, Chuck Potthast, on a trip to the Grand Canyon. Although he’s personally honored to be included in the happy occasion, Chuck brought up the concern that the rest of the family would be hurt to find out through social media rather than the couple themselves.

90 Day Fiancé Fans Criticize The Exclusion Of Libby’s Family From The Baby Announcement

Announcing the pregnancy on social media before telling the rest of the family has elicited concern from Chuck and shock from 90 Day Fiancé viewers. Despite the issues in the family, it seems excessive to put the family on the same level as anyone else who follows Libby on Instagram. Charlie Potthast wants to move on from feuding, and some other family members seem to agree. However, the goal of peace will never be achievable when Libby and Andrei continue to isolate themselves. Furthermore, fans expect that once the family sees the announcement, it will not go over well, and the blame will somehow shift to Andrei again.

Still, the fighting between Andrei and Libby’s family over the years makes it hard for the couple to share their joy. The family previously diminished the couple’s happiness in instances such as Andrei working in the family business. Although the couple was happy with the accomplishment, the family was not, and it became another reason to attack Andrei. Additionally, with the stress of Andrei’s immigration status, the couple may not want to add more stress to their lives, which is almost inevitable with Libby’s family.

Although the method of Libby and Andrei’s second baby announcement should not take away from the celebration of the occasion, 90 Day Fiancé fans anticipate drama will follow. While some fans argue Libby and Andrei are justified in keeping their news to themselves, it still does change the fact that her family will be hurt knowing they were left out. Regardless, viewers appreciate the inclusive moment with Chuck and will wait to see how the announcement goes over with the rest of the family in future episodes.
