The TLC docu-series Return to Amish follows those who have left behind their Amish or Mennonite communities in favor of "English" lifestyles. While veterans Jeremiah Raber and Sabrina Burkholder adjusted to life outside of their faith, Maureen Byler and Rosanna Miller were new additions in Season 6 and, at the time, they had to tell their families that they were headed to Florida to have new experiences.

Are Maureen and Daniel still together after 'Return to Amish'?

While TLC stars often stay tight-lipped about their relationship statuses until their season is done airing, Maureen and Daniel have shared where things stand between them now.

The couple became Facebook official in February of 2020, and they got engaged by July of that year.

Season 7 of Return to Amish even showed Maureen reveal wedding plans.

Outside of Return to Amish, Maureen and Daniel also welcomed a baby together. In April 2022, Maureen shared the first photo of her daughter on Instagram and noted that, at the time, she was two months old. Although Maureen isn't as ingrained in the show as other Return to Amish stars, fans will be happy to know that she and Daniel are still going strong.

Who is Daniel from 'Return to Amish'?

Shortly after viewers met Maureen on the show, she shared that she had a crush on someone with loose ties to her Amish community. When Maureen and Rosanna got ready to leave for Florida in the Season 6 premiere, they called on Daniel to take them to the airport in his car.

"I'm most excited that Danny is taking us to the airport," Maureen giddily told Rosanna on the show.

Rosanna had already known about Maureen's crush, and she urged her friend to tell Daniel about her feelings.

In her confessional, Maureen detailed who Daniel is, and how they met. 

"I have a crush on this really handsome guy. He's actually an Amish taxi driver," Maureen said. "An Amish taxi driver is usually an ex-Amish friend that we trust, that takes us places that we can't go without [a] horse and buggy."

The Return to Amish star knew Daniel since she was a kid, and she often asked him to take her places so they could spend more time together.

"I want to be with him," she said during her first season on the show. "He's the boy that I like."

She also shared that Daniel has scars all over his body because he accidentally ingested Drano when he was about 18 months old. Though the doctors recommended that he get plastic surgery to cover the scars up, the people in Daniel's community were against the idea.

Maureen later said that she wouldn't want Daniel to look any different. 

"It doesn't matter to me. I like him just the way he is," she said in her confessional. "I wouldn't want him to change."

Even though being on television could have caused a rift in their relationship, or unnecessary drama, Maureen and Daniel's relationship passed the reality TV test.
