The pair’s journey to parenthood will be documented on the upcoming fourth season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? In a statement to E! News following their pregnancy announcement, Andrei and Elizabeth gushed about their new life.

"Being married is amazing and everything we thought it would be! Expecting a child and growing our family is a true blessing!" they shared. The parents-to-be also addressed their plans to have another wedding in Andrei’s native Moldova.

"We are currently awaiting Andrei's permanent residency approval so we can travel back to Moldova to visit our family and get started on our Moldavian wedding plans," they explained. "In the meantime, we are getting our little girl's nursery in order and planning our baby shower. We cannot wait to be parents!"

Despite Andrei’s rocky relationship with Elizabeth’s family, they came together for a gender reveal party in October. "Most of my family counted on it being a girl, and everybody was right," Elizabeth recalled to Cosmopolitan. "We just kind of had this gut feeling."

The couple’s financial issues appear to have stabilized.

In a special spinoff series called 90 Day Fiancé: What Now?, which aired in July 2018, Elizabeth and Andrei’s financial situation became a hot topic of conversation between her sisters and dad.

They questioned how the duo planned to pay for a Moldovan wedding when Andrei didn’t have a job and had yet to secure a green card work permit. In an on-camera confessional, Elizabeth’s father expressed his concerns about a second ceremony.

"It doesn’t really fit in with what they’re trying to do right now, which is get on their feet financially, him get a job, and get ahead of their bills," he shared. "To me, it’s not necessary to have a wedding when you’re in the situation that they’re in now."

But according to Elizabeth’s brother-in-law, Orlando Davis, who hosts his own radio show in Florida, the former bouncer is looking after his family. "Do I like Andrei? Yeah... He's a good guy, he takes care of his wife, they got a baby coming," Orlando said on the air in October. "So yeah, they're doing their thing." 

Watch the Season 4 premiere of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? on April 28 at 8 p.m. ET on TLC.
