'90 Day Fiance' Spoilers: Are Bilal and Shaeeda still together? Did the '90 Day Fiance' couple marry? (SPOILERS)
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 06/05/2022
90 Day Fiance star Shaeeda is afraid Bilal Hazziez's reluctance to have children is going to drive them apart, so did the couple break up or get married? And if Shaeeda and Bilal tied the knot, do 90 Day Fiance spoilers reveal that they're still together now?
[90 Day Fiance Spoiler Warning: This report contains spoilers on Bilal and Shaeeda's relationship and if the 90 Day Fiance couple split up or are still together.]
Bilal, a 42-year-old real estate investor from Kansas City, MO, admitted on the Season 9 premiere of 90 Day Fiance that he's a little "high maintenance," although he's a Muslim man from "the hood" and appreciates nice suits, his collection of fancy watches, and his fancy car.
Bilal met Shaeeda, a 37-year-old yoga instructor from Trinidad and Tobago, online.
The couple had mutual friends on social media and so Shaeeda slid into his DMs and expressed interest, and Bilal thought she looked beautiful and ambitious.
After communicating for some time, Bilal flew to the Caribbean to meet his love interest in person. After spending only a week together in person, Bilal proposed marriage and then they applied for the K-1 visa so they could start their life together in America as soon as possible.
A couple of months later, however, the coronavirus pandemic hit, and so Shaeeda and Bilal weren't able to see each other for a whopping two years.
The time then finally came when Bilal and Shaeeda could reunite. It apparently took Bilal seven years to find love again because he's "very picky," according to his ex.
"Under the eyes of God, we are married, and so she can live at my home," Bilal said, explaining how he and Shaeeda had a spiritual union but not a legal one.
Shaeeda married Bilal, spiritually, without ever seeing his nice home, car and savings. Bilal wanted to make sure that Shaeeda loved him for who he is, not his money or belongings.
Shaeeda had told Bilal that she's "a ride or die" and would be willing to "live under a tent" as long as they're together, and so Bilal planned to put that to the test by taking Shaeeda to his humble childhood home.
The pair then had a sweet reunion at the airport in which they hugged and kissed.
But Bilal walked Shaeeda over to a large white work van, and she accused him of tossing her luggage into a big pile of "trash" in the back. She said Bilal had always been "secretive" about his lifestyle and so she wondered what he was hiding from her.
Shaeeda was well aware that Bilal bought, flipped and sold properties, and so she always thought he was pretty secure financially.
Shaeeda told Bilal that he had "lost some points" with her, but that also made Shaeeda lose some points with him. He began questioning Shaeeda's character and values.
When Bilal brought Shaeeda to his childhood home, where he grew up with "great working-class citizens," Shaeeda shook her head in disappointment and disgust at the peeling paint, broken steps and holes in the ceiling.
Shaeeda called the home "dilapidated" and admitted to the cameras that she didn't want to live there.
When Bilal asked Shaeeda if she wanted him to order something to eat, she snapped back, "Do you have enough money for that?"
Bilal called Shaeeda's behavior "offensive." He expected her to be surprised but grateful and happy about them finally being together.
Shaeeda, who noticed Bilal used designer luggage, confessed to feeling "completely deceived" after seeing his "humble abode."
Shaeeda reminded Bilal how she had left her family, friends, and life in Trinidad and Tobago to be with him and so this was a lot to adjust to and get used to. She worried about him not being real and being "delusional" with his image, but she decided she would stick out the 90 days and continue being with Bilal.
"We may have to sell a couple of his suits, but I am here to work with him. We have a lot of work to do before we can even cross the bridge of getting married," Shaeeda said, adding how she loved Bilal.
And Bilal lamented, "If the wedding was tomorrow, I don't know what I'd do. I'd be praying all night, trying to figure it out."
Shaeeda apologized the next day, but she just wanted to make sure that Bilal could provide for her since she wouldn't be able to work in the U.S. for quite some time. Bilal assured her that he could.
Once Shaeeda saw Bilal's real home, she was thrilled and relieved. But Bilal's little prank was going to make her question if she could trust him 100 percent.
Bilal also surprised Shaeeda with her own yoga studio in the house, which made her cry tears of joy. She felt so welcome and appreciated, but Shaeeda wished Bilal had shown all of her this first.
Bilal worried Shaeeda was happy with the house more than she was happy about being with him, and she still felt some resentment towards Bilal.
When Shaeeda met Bilal's mother and sister, Bilal said he wanted to have two boys and two girls but travel before settling down.
Bilal claimed Shaeeda lived in "a fantasy land" when it came to thinking about bringing their children to all of these different places while traveling together.
When asked if they planned to set a wedding date, Shaeeda explained it was important to get to know Bilal better and use their 90 days together wisely. She needed to be sure of when -- or if -- Bilal would be willing to have a child with her.
Shaeeda then met Bilal's children, Zaynah, 16, and Yusuf, 13, and she wanted to show her fiance how she was ready for children and could be a good mother to them.
Shaeeda was a little quiet and shy at first, but the kids thought Shaeeda was cool. However, the kids didn't want to call her "Umi" -- which she had requested -- because it means "mother."
Shaeeda complained about Bilal avoiding conversation about having a child together. She wasn't convinced he really wanted to be a father again.
"If Bilal tells me he doesn't want kids, it will break my heart. And I'm pretty sure it will be a dealbreaker for our relationship. There's no relationship after that," Shaeeda lamented.
In the first few days of living with Bilal, Shaeeda accused him of being too uptight, saying he needed to loosen up a bit.
Shaeeda felt Bilal often lectured her, and she wanted him to respect her feelings and speak to her like a fiancee or a wife -- and not a child.
On his first Friday with Shaeeda in America, he took her to Juma, which is a sacred time for Muslims to congregate and show their devotion through a Friday midday prayer.
Shaeeda wanted Bilal's community and his ex-wife to like him.
The couple bickered on their ride over, with Bilal telling Shaeeda to keep her hands to herself and watch her tone. He dubbed her "aggressive" after she gave him a pat on the back of the head, and Bilal noted he didn't play those type of games and they were making him look at her in a different way.
Shaeeda was just playing around and Bilal was angry, so they weren't on the same page. Bilal even asked Shaeeda if she's "a violent person." He didn't think her tap on his head was playful at all, and the pair accused one another of killing the mood.
"You don't hit people! Where do you come from? Is that what y'all do in Trinidad?" Bilal asked. "You lose a lot of point. I'm thinking you're a violent person, and that's not what I'm trying to be with."
Shaeeda pointed out how Bilal had lost points with her as well, and then they gave each other the silent treatment. Shaeeda was shocked Bilal didn't have more of a sense of humor.
Shaeeda was upset to meet all of Bilal's loved ones at the Islamic center under these circumstances. Bilal felt "disrespected" and "really irritated," but he decided to just be quiet and get through the day on a cordial note with Shaeeda.
"I'm thinking we don't know each other as well as we thought, so it's kind of hard to shake that off," Bilal lamented.
Shaeeda felt "alone" at Juma because Bilal had his family, friends and community. She walked around by herself and Bilal didn't try to make her feel better or welcome, but she at least had a nice meet and greet with Shahidah.
"I feel I've stepped inside of Bilal's world... I don't think I've had much of a voice," Shaeeda complained.
Bilal later told Shaeeda that she had hit him three different times after telling her that he didn't like it and it was a sign of disrespect, and Shaeeda explained how she had grown up rough-housing with her brothers as a sign of love and affection.
Shaeeda pointed out how they had a cultural difference because she never meant to offend him, but Bilal said she had overstepped his boundaries and didn't seem to care about his feelings when she kept poking at him.
Regardless, Shaeeda apologized and said she'd never do it again. She just didn't like feeling punished when she had meant no harm or ill intent.
"Right now, we are not ready to walk down that aisle," Bilal confessed.
With 81 days to wed, Bilal took Shaeeda out for a nice dinner in Kansas City. Bilal showed off his romantic side by taking Shaeeda on a gondola ride, which made her feel overwhelmed, happy and grateful.
"These are the things that I prayed for. I was single for so long, thinking I'd never find love. I was a hopeless romantic... and I had moments where I was just crying and frustrated thinking I'd never find love or be happy," Shaeeda shared with Bilal.
And Bilal felt the same way. He called Shaeeda "an amazing person" and felt like their romance was like a dream.
While Bilal recognized they were fortunate and blessed, he still had the fear his relationship with Shaeeda may not work out.
"I know you are the right person for me, 100 percent... 110 percent," Shaeeda gushed.
"That's good to know," Bilal replied. "That's good to know."
When asked if he wants more children, Bilal said he needed more time to get to know Shaeeda. Bilal said they had to work hard to maintain their love and putting a child into the mix would be "something totally and completely different."
Bilal apparently feared having children with Shaeeda and then possibly going through another divorce. Bilal wanted to make sure Shaeeda could adapt to living in a whole new country, and he told his fiancee that he didn't want to put any unnecessary stress on their relationship.
"If Shaeeda and I don't agree on the baby thing, it can become an issue and could potentially drive us apart," Bilal acknowledged.
Based on previews of what's to come this season, Shaeeda complains about Bilal's request for a prenuptial agreement.
"Do you want to take everything that I have?" Bilal asks Shaeeda in the clip.
Shaeeda is then shown crying and calling a family member, threatening to hop on a plane and head home.
So did Bilal and Shaeeda split up or get married -- and if the 90 Day Fiance couple tied the knot, are they still together now?
Shaeeda and Bilal still follow each other and like each other's posts on Instagram, suggesting the reality TV stars are still an item.
And Shaeeda uploaded a video May 19 on her Instagram Stories of Bilal and herself in the car.
Shaeeda also posted a photo of herself sitting in front of a pile of gifts May 2 on Instagram, and she wrote in the caption how Bilal "made up for" his "ridiculous prank."
Bilal and Shaeeda also conducted an interview with Entertainment Tonight in early May, and Shaeeda insisted her relationship with Bilal is "real."
"With Bilal, there [were] a lot of things I was not prepared for," Shaeeda noted.
"I just want fans to know this is a real relationship... You're going to see moments when we argue or we disagree or we're in love."
Shaeeda said she and Bilal are both Muslim individuals but they still have "problems like everyone else."
Bilal added, "You're gonna see a roller coaster and you have to remember, we're still trying to get to know each other."
In fact, Bilal and Shaeeda "still have arguments" based on Bilal's prank in which he made Shaeeda think he drives a white work van and lives in a small "dilapidated" home with peeling paint, broken windows and a torn ceiling.
"We haven't got past this test. It still comes up; he still talks about it and says how much I hurt his feelings," Shaeeda disclosed. "And I try to express my point of view, so he tested me on something that really could have, you know... it's just too heavy."
But if they're "still" fighting, then they're "still" an item!
Bilal also gushed about his feelings for Shaeeda in the interview and why she's wife material.
"I just feel like she had the essence of things that I was looking for, great motherly qualities for my children and any future children to come," Bilal gushed.
On why he fell for her, he added of Shaeeda, "She was ambitious, she wears her faith on her sleeve, she's very God conscious, so a lot of different qualities I was looking for she possessed."
And in late April 2022, Shaeeda hinted she is still living in the United States, which would mean she and Bilal got married within the 90-day requirement of her K-1 visa -- or else she'd have to return to the Caribbean.
"I will never forget this precious moment. I cried so much watching this. Almost two years apart, the K1 Visa process was a nightmare," Shaeeda captioned a video of her arrival into the United States and reunion with Bilal in the airport.
"Now I'm finally here in America! All I want to do is hold onto you forever. God is great. After hardship comes ease. Hopefully smooth sailing after this #90dayfiance #girl #girls #shaeeda #bilal #bilalandshaeeda #trinidadandtobago #usa #america #beautiful #couplegoals #muslimcouple #muslim."
Shaeeda also wrote in the comments of her post that she's "adjusting to new life in the USA."
Shaeeda seemed to drop another hint in mid-April, when she had an American Flag emoji in her Instagram bio. But she has since deleted it.
Back in January and February, Shaeeda posted multiple videos of herself doing some yoga poses in the snow. Considering it doesn't snow in Trinidad and Tobago, it appears she is still living in Kansas City with Bilal.
And in December 2021, Shaeeda praised her "patient photographer" who always does "an amazing job" when filming her. Shaeeda added a red-heart emoji to her post, so her photographer may be Bilal.
