Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield: Expecting First Child!

by at .

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield have spent the past few weeks insisting that they're still together.

Constantly facing questions about their status, the 90 Day Fiance stars have sworn that everything is good and positive and now they have a new and exciting way to prove it...

... Paola is pregnant!!!!!!

And you don't need to simply take our word for it, either.

Just listen to what the TLC personalities themselves have to say.

"This is the most amazing feeling ever! We can’t believe we are going to be parents - we are already so in love with our baby,” the stars tell Us Weekly.

“We are ready for this new adventure and we know it will bring us closer together.

"God has blessed us again, and this time, we are going as strong as our baby’s heartbeat!"

This baby will be the first for Russ and Paola, but that statement does come with a caveat.

The couple revealed earlier this year that Paola had suffered a fairly recent miscarriage.

This tragedy was actually featured on an episode of 90 Day Fiance, as a doctor explained to the model that the miscarriage was due to her having type O-negative blood that was also Rh-negative.

This is a rare condition, but it's one that a doctor can manage for a future pregnancy once he's aware it exists.

The very sad situation created a rift between the Mayfields, who got married in October 2013.

Paola thought that Russ was not there for her in the way she needed following the devastating news; while Russ thought his wife was trying to shut him out.

The other major obstacle Russ and Paola thave run into centers around the latter's penchant for showing off her body.

Russ was raised in a more conservative manner and has admittedly taken issue with Paola's topless shoots.

But he insited in a July 7 Instagram post that this doesn't mean he isn't committed and in love.

"I am tired of the comments from the marriage ‘experts’ stating I deserve better, my wife doesn’t respect me, or she only loves me for my money,” Mayfield captioned a photo of himself kissing his wife.

He elaborated, growing a bit angry:

“The mere glimpse of our lives shown doesn’t always show our best moments but impressions and impressions from our cultural differences and how we are coming together as an even stronger couple. …

"I am proud of where I come from and where I am going and that’s with the love of my life."

That sounds fair, doesn't it?

Reality television shows certainly are known to edit content at times in order to increase the drama.

This doesn't mean the Mayfields haven't clashed over their belief systems on occasion.

But their marriage does not appear to be in trouble.

Part 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? airs Sunday, July 29, at 8/7c on TLC.

Congratulations to Paola and Russ!
