'90 Day Fiancé' star Avery Mills has already posted an update regarding the Beirut explosion.

Avery and Omar celebrated their one-and-half-year anniversary only a few weeks ago, one of Avery's latest Instagram posts reveal. Although they met up in Beirut on several occasions, they weren't there to celebrate the landmark moment. 

"Omg this is so devastating I love Beirut so much, I hope they are all okay," Avery tweeted on Aug. 4, 2020, shortly after the explosion occurred.

"When I heard of this, I immediately checked to see if you were tweeting and were ok. So glad you and Omar are safe," wrote somebody else. 

Omar isn't as active on social media as his wife. He doesn't seem to have a Twitter or an Instagram account at present. However, as one of Avery's recent Instagram stories reveal, he wasn't hurt in the explosion, as he wasn't in the city when it occurred. 

"Omar is not in Lebanon. Prayers to Beirut," Avery wrote.
