For years, Usman Umar has “entertained” 90 Day Fiance viewers with his disastrous and dramatic relationships.
More recently, he has been threatening to return to the franchise.
Yes, he really does have a new lady love.
This week, he wished her a very happy birthday, proclaiming their love to the world.
This week, Usman Umar celebrated his lady love’s birthday on Instagram.
“Happy Birthday to you my LOVE @the.kiera.elise,” he declared.
Usman praised: “You are a strong woman, loving and caring. I will choose you now and always.”
Early this spring, Usman announced that he might very well be “in love.”
Initially, fans took that as Usman threatening to return to 90 Day Fiance in some form.
It was not unreasonable, we soon learned, as the woman’s identity bubbled to the surface.
Over time, it became increasingly obvious that Usman and Kiera were an item. Then, of course, came confirmation.
At present, they both seem to be in London, England. That’s more or less meeting halfway for the Nigerian native and the New Jersey resident, right?
Their social media is full of their adventures together.
“Love is a beautiful thing, it’s amazing to fall in love and to get it back in return,” Usman wrote in a recent post.
“I’m officially off market not by force but by choice, this one is the right one for me,” he affirmed.
Usman prompted fans and followers: “Check us out don’t you think we fit? Guys no hating pls.”
As far as public relationships go, this is Usman’s first since he and Kimberly Menzies ended things in Nigeria.
Those two have remained friends — to some degree or another — but have not gotten back together. They have also not become “friends with benefits,” as Kimberly had suggested.
A bone-buddy can be convenient. But ideally, not someone who lives on another continent.
Things with Kimberly and Usman fell apart. Thankfully, before they took a drastic step like adopting Usman’s nephew.
Ultimately, his mother was extremely opposed to the relationship. She gave her permission — something that Usman required, in his mind — only after a lot of time and effort.
Will Kiera have that same problem? Will she, too, need to agree to let Usman take a second wife to give him a child?
Kiera is also an American, but she is not like Kimberly Menzies or “Baby Girl” Lisa Hamme. She is now 36 years old. Usman is only a couple of years younger.
Given the role that age has played in Usman’s relationships, this could be a game changer.
But Kiera is still an American. And that leads many fans to conclude that Usman is angling for more time on screen.
Viewers have followed his nonsense with Lisa and with Kimberly.
Perhaps we will see him again soon. Or maybe production will cut him off. Will his relationship survive that disappointing news?
