Russ is being VERY patient
We've been critical of Russ in the past over his hangups over Paola's career, but we've really come around on the guy. Now, he's terrified of making his wife's mental state worse while he's at a loss for how to get his wife to trust him and his mom enough to hold Axel.
Even Pao's mom is at a loss
She admits to the camera that she cannot wrap her head around why Paola is afraid to let Mama Mayfield hold Axel.
Russ formulates a plan
He confides to the camera that he's going to encourage his mother to hold baby Axel, even if he has to do it in secret. This ... does not sound healthy and it sounds like setting up the family for an explosion of drama. Paola just needs therapy. THERAPY!
Elizabeth and Andrei
In the mean time, Paola isn't the only 90 Day Fiance star who refuses to be reasonable or rational about a newborn, because Andrei has gone Full Clown about the birth of his and Elizabeth's child.
Elizabeth is in labor!
It started at 6am that morning and, at one point, Andrei tells the camera that it's been going for 16 hours. SIXTEEN hours of agony.
Yes, Andrei is there with her
Andrei and only Andrei is there by Elizabeth's side
