While 90 Day Fiance is filled with drama, big personalities, and ugly divorces, some couples stand out positively in people’s minds.
Loren and Alexei have been fan favorites for years for a host of reasons.
Now, the couple has a major announcement that they know that viewers will be excited to hear.
Loren and Alexei Brovarnik spoke to Us Weekly to announce that they are expecting their very first child!
"It’s a surreal moment in our lives," Loren begins, gushing.
"For me, I see a lot of people I know (personally) announcing their own exciting news," she acknowledges.
"And now," Loren declares. "It’s my turn."
"I’m excited, terrified, over the moon, nervous, and so much more!" Loren raves.
And she has more to be happy about than just her pregnancy.
Loren reports that "Alex is hands down the best partner I could have ever asked for during this time."
It’s their gushing affection for each other that helped these two become fan favorites for years and years.
As you can imagine, Alexei is so hyped to become a father.
"I’m very excited and happy," Alexei expresses.
"But," he admits, he is "nervous and scared at the same time."
That is very reasonable. In fact, we might worry about anyone not nervous to become a first-time parent.
Loren has also spoken about how the pregnancy has treated her so far.
"The first trimester wasn’t easy for me," she admits.
To Alexei’s credit, she adds: "And he was and is an amazing support system."
Having your partner or partners be supportive emotionally while you grapple with the physical realities of pregnancy can make a huge difference.
"We are just overjoyed and cannot wait to meet our baby this spring!" Loren shares, teasing the due date.
She adds: "The fact that it happened in Israel just makes it that much more special for us."
As fans will of course recall, Alexei is Israeli, and Israel is where they met.
"We have been through a lot," Loren affirms. "And we’re just so excited for this next journey together!"
Loren and Alexei met years ago, when Loren was on her Birthright trip to Israel.
There, she met Alexei. Both being young and total hotties, they fell in love.
The couple had two weddings: one in Israel and one in the United States.
That way, they ensured that both families would be able to attend one ceremony or the other.
On the show, Loren expressed disappointment with some of her 90 Day Fiance castmates.
In her eyes, people hoping for reality TV fame, or a convenient path to citizenship, or convenient cash made a mockery of the K-1 visa process.
Loren made it clear that she felt that marriage and the show were and should remain about love, like what she feels for Alexei and he for her.
We are so, so excited that this wonderful and beautiful couple is expecting their first child.
Major congratulations to them both!
In addition to making their official announcement through a noted tabloid, the couple also shared the news on social media.
Alexei could not contain his impending paternal excitement for one more moment.
"Yes it’s tru we are pregnant couldn’t be more excited," he raved in the captions on Instagram.
Alexei gushed: "I AM GOING TO BE A DADDY !!!"
Loren also shared a message on Instagram to confirm the happy news to her fans and followers.
"We’re so excited to finally say, BabyBrov is on its way!" Loren rhymed.
"For those of you saying I’m pregnant, well, ding ding ding,": she announced.
Clearly, some eagle-eyed (but boundary-lacking) fans had been commenting that she appeared to be pregnant.
They may have been right on the money this time, but … please do not do that.
While it’s clear that they don’t know what sorts of bits that the wee baby Brovarnik will be sporting, she made the rough due date clear.
Loren’s caption concluded: "We cannot wait to welcome our baby boy or girl this Spring!"
Countless fans cannot wait either, Loren.
This couple has so much love to offer to their soon-to-be baby, and fans are overjoyed that they’ve shared that they’re on this journey.
It’ll be spring before we all know it!
