90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? stars Paola and Russ Mayfield are enjoying life with their infant son, Axel.

While Pao has balked at the idea of having another baby, she is discussing what she loves -- and does not love -- about motherhood.

Russ praises his wife's parenting, and they both tease some big surprises that the show has in store.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield: Pregnant?

As part of their recent press tour for 90 Day Fiance, Russ and Paola Mayfield spoke to E! News.

One question that Pao addressed was the biggest change in her life since she brought Axel into the world on January 1.

"I think my social life," Paola replies truthfully.

"Like," she says. "I'm the one who has to stay at home with the baby."

"I feel like I‘m the one who is sacrificing the most," Paola expresses.

Paola Mayfield Rests with Baby Axel

Paola wants to make it very clear to people at home that having a baby is a full-time, life-transforming job.

"I feel like I'm sacrificing a lot," Paola says.

She does clarify: "I don't regret it."

"But I feel like sometimes I get a little bit jealous," Pao admits. "About the difference between my husband and I."

Well, if they're not dividing parenting duties evenly, we can imagine how some resentments might form.

Russ has his own observations about their new family dynamic and, specifically, about Paola's mothering skills.

"She is beyond overprotective and overbearing for Axel," Russ praises.

Overbearing was probably not the word that he wanted to use there.

"Like, when he was first born," Russ recalls. "She wouldn't let anybody hold him but me—barely."

"And," he adds, even then "she would hold him more."

Paola Mayfield Kisses Baby Axel

E! News also asked Paola and Russ about where things left off with Pao's friend Juan back in Season 3.

"I feel like Juan interferes with our relationship more than he should," Russ assesses. "And yeah, I don't enjoy that."

"He's like a sister to me," Paola expresses. "I don't know, I just feel like maybe that Pao around Juan, I just feel that I don't care what happen around me."

"I just want to have fun," when she's around her friend, she explains.

"I just get caught up in that moment," Pao says. "Ad it reminds me of when we were like 16 because I've known him my whole life."

Russ Mayfield, Paola Mayfield, and Baby Axel

Paola and Russ also opened up about parts of their story that fans do not yet know.

After all, we've all been following along as they welcomed baby Axel.

We even know that, at least for now, they appear to be living in Florida, not in Oklahoma.

But they promise that there are more surprises on the way on Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?

"Everything the way we brought Axel to this world is going to be completely different," Paola teases.

"And," she promises. "It's going to be really beautiful, an amazing story."

Kiss for the Mayfields

That certainly sounds exciting.

(We of course take Paola's assurance with a tiny grain of salt, since she's a star on the show and not neutral)

Even as much as we've been keeping an eye on 90 Day Fiance stars and their lives, some secrets manage to remain hidden.

We'll soon find out what the Mayfields have in store for us.

90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? is still airing on Sunday nights.
