By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/09/2020
90 Day Fiance couple Blake Abelard and Jasmin Lahtinen reconciled after a big fight on Season 7 episode of the TLC series, but did they actually go through with getting married -- and is the 90 Day Fiance couple still together now?
[90 Day Fiance Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers revealing if Blake and Jasmin are still together now and where Jasmin is currently living.]
Blake, a 29-year-old audio engineer and music producer from California, and Jasmin, a 27-year-old model from Finland, are currently starring on 90 Day Fiance's seventh season, which is nearing its end on TLC.
Blake realized by his third trip to Finland that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Jasmin, and so that's when he proposed marriage to her. Blake was so happy Jasmin said yes, and then her K-1 visa got approved.
Blake's friend Rita had watched him "rise and fall" in different relationships, and she didn't want him to get taken advantage of again. His mother Kerline was also a bit worried and skeptical.
Blake knew his decision to bring Jasmin to America was risky and unpopular, but in his mind, Jasmin was "perfect" and life together was going to be great. He was 85% sure Jasmin wasn't coming for a Green Card.
Meanwhile, Jasmin's sister Janette couldn't wait to experience Los Angeles with her sibling and best friend. Janette said she didn't know Blake very well, but she looked forward to spending time with him as well.
Jasmin said she was single for three years before she met Blake, who was different from anyone else she had ever dated. Jasmin said she'd never marry a man she's not compatible with, but Blake was going to be the first man she ever lived with.
Once Jasmin and Blake reunited in America, Blake said his sex life with Jasmin was "great" and he couldn't complain, but she just wanted to shower and rest their first night together in a hotel room.
Blake seemed understanding but disappointed, and then his friends were disappointed when meeting Jasmin the next day at the hotel's pool.
Jasmin, still jet-lagged and exhausted, wasn't looking forward to answering a bunch of questions and having to be social and bubbly. She also doesn't like to party or drink alcohol.
During the gathering, Jasmin suddenly wasn't feeling good, so she decided to leave the little party and go back to the hotel room, where she could rest.
"I'm marrying Blake, not his friends," Jasmin told the cameras.
Blake wished Jasmin had pushed through her fatigue a little longer in order to get to know his friends better, but he said he had to accept Jasmin the way she is.
Jasmin insisted she's "a people person" -- as long as she's around people she truly likes.
Blake liked Jasmin's independence but said she can be "very blunt at times," as she always "voices her opinion." But he figured things would only get better within the next few months of her living in America.
Blake then brought Jasmin to his mother Kerline and stepfather's place. Blake explained that once his parents moved into a new home, he and Jasmin would be taking over their apartment. However, Blake had no idea when that move was going to take place.
When Jasmin met Blake's parents, Kerline thought the model was beautiful yet quiet and reserved.
But Kerline and her husband sat down with Blake and Jasmin to tell them there had been a misunderstanding and some miscommunication.
Blake's parents said they weren't going to allow Blake and Jasmin to live together under the same roof before marriage given they're a conservative, Christian family.
Jasmin admitted Blake's music was different and she didn't really understand the lyrics. Blake also covers his face when he raps, which Jasmin thought was weird and unnecessary.
Blake hoped Jasmin wouldn't hate his music, but while he performed, she appeared totally disinterested. Blake and his friends hoped Jasmin would dance in the pit, scream and cheer, but she just sat at a quiet table the whole time.
"If Blake was not my fiance, I don't think he would be my favorite artist," Jasmin said in a confessional. "I don't like rap music."
Jasmin, however, told Blake's friend Rita that she was enjoying herself. Rita worried Jasmin was using Blake and hoped she was in the United States for the right reasons.
Blake understood where Rita was coming from, and he also wanted Jasmin to prove that she cared for him.
Blake's friend Joey, who is president of Blake's record label, said it was hard to see that Jasmin wasn't into his music. Blake explained Jasmin tends not to be very expressive and she just doesn't love to party.
Blake's friends didn't think Jasmin was "down" with their world, and the guys just wanted to be able to laugh and have fun with Jasmin, which simply wasn't happening.
"With the 90 days, it's either now or never that he notices [Jasmin]'s lack of interest in what he's doing. Maybe he doesn't want to accept it, or maybe he's just delusional," Joey told the cameras.
"I don't know what we said that was completely off, but... we're coming from a good place."
Not long afterwards, Blake and Jasmin had their biggest fight of the season so far.
Blake and Jasmin headed to his best friend Everett's 30th birthday party, which began with a pre-party dinner followed by a lounge or bar.
Jasmin asked Blake to go to dinner alone because they hadn't spent much time together since they had been forced to live apart.
Blake was initially hesitant to change the plans since his friends already had an issue with Jasmin, but he succumbed to what she wanted to please her.
Once at the restaurant, Blake ordered a wine slushy, which meant Jasmin wasn't going to kiss him all night. Jasmin admitted she didn't like alcohol on his breath and so she asked him to only have one drink, but Blake did what he wanted and joked he was going to get "so drunk."
Blake ordered a second drink and then Jasmin threatened to go home after their dinner.
"Can I go to my sister's place?" Jasmin asked.
"No, stupid, you're supposed to be there [at the party] with me," Blake responded.
"I don't know. I don't think I'm going to go," Jasmin said. "I'm going to go call my sister."
Jasmin then walked out of the restaurant, saying she didn't appreciate feeling pressured to hang out with Blake's friends. Jasmin thought Blake was acting selfish, but he thought the same about her.
Blake insisted they had to blend their two different lifestyles or else their relationship would never work. Blake reminded Jasmin their wedding was "right around the corner."
"I'm just trying to figure out if this is the right thing," Blake told the cameras.
Jasmin apologized for walking out on Blake and leaving him in a restaurant, but he replied, "I get it."
"I just don't want it to happen again in the future," Blake said, adding that they needed to implement better communication in the future.
The couple therefore patched things up and seemed fine again. Jasmin was all smiles.
Later on, Blake and his mother Kerline met up with Jasmin's parents Mirja and Markku, whom Blake had met before and liked a lot. Blake hoped the two sets of parents would get along great or else they'd have a big problem.
Blake revealed he and Jasmin wanted to have a simple sunset wedding ceremony in a park next to where Blake had grown up, and Jasmin agreed she liked small weddings.
Jasmin said she didn't want to hold down a 9AM-5PM job and would rather work on her inner self instead, but that worried Kerline because living in Los Angeles is expensive and she thought two incomes are needed to feel comfortable.
Jasmin said Blake was going to be the breadwinner and he had no problem with that. She also insisted Blake was making enough money to support them both.
Blake told the cameras it made him nervous to have to provide for the both of them, but he was ready to "hustle" for the woman he loved.
So did Jasmin and Blake work out and get married? Is the 90 Day Fiance couple still together now?
Jasmin and Blake are definitely still a couple and thriving.
On January 25, Jasmin posted a bathroom selfie of the couple and captioned it, "That's my baby." Blake had his arm around Jasmin in the photo and she was smiling big.
Blake also openly spoiled the current status of his relationship with Jasmin by gushing about his love for her in a mid-January 2020 Instagram post.
Not only did Blake post several photos of Jasmin smiling around Christmas time and looking pensive and beautiful on other occasions, but he also shared a picture of them together in what appeared to be New York City.
"The fact that I get to see her smile every day, reminds me of all the nights I worked, the beats/productions I sold, and all the clients I've recorded, just to see her...and it was TOTALLY worth it," Blake captioned the slideshow.
"We're growing as one and its the greatest thing ever. We shun negativity out of our lives just by simply reminding ourselves that, it's US, not them."
Blake concluded, "I got her here on my own. I'm taking care of her on my own. I could care less what anyone says. This woman is my everything, my [world]. I love u @jasminaniel."
Blake tagged the location of his post about Jasmin as "to the moon and back."
On December 26, Blake also posted a video to his Instagram Stories in which he was playfully targeting Jasmin with a nerf gun, which was probably one of his Christmas gifts.
Around the same time, Jasmin shared a funny photo of the couple posing in their Christmas sweaters.
Jasmin also posted a photo on December 25, saying she was in Los Angeles.
And two weeks earlier, Blake conducted a Q&A session with his followers on Instagram Stories.
Blake revealed he'd like to have 2-3 children with Jasmin in one of his responses, showing they're still together.
On the same day, Blake also posted a photo of the 90 Day Fiance cast, gushing about his time with Jasmin in New York City when they all gathered to film the Season 7 Tell-All special.
"This 5 day getaway to New York was amazing... Seeing @jasminaniel experience New York for the first time ever was wonderful and amazing, moments like these are moments we will always remember," Blake captioned the image.
"She also got to meet my brother, Brandon @bastyle_nycla and see us & our goofy ways. Also, thank you to all the90 Day Fiance Season 7 couples] that we met... I don't care what people THINK... and after hearing that ALL OF OUR EXPERIENCES with this show are the same, there's nothing that can break the bond that was gained after shooting for 20+ hours in a day, having some drinks and good conversations."
On December 3, Jasmin took to Instagram and posted a beautiful photo of the couple with a mountain landscape in the background.
"A love like no other," Jasmin captioned the image, along with a red-heart emoji.
Jasmin hinted she was living in the United States when she posted two separate photos of herself in Los Angeles on November 4 and November 14.
Her continued presence in America indicates she and Blake must have gotten married during the 90-day period of her K-1 visa, or else she would have had to return to Finland.
In late October 2019, Jasmin also posted a boomerang of herself kissing Blake as the sun was setting.
When Jasmin and Blake spoke to Entertainment Tonight at a 90 Day Fiance press event in Hollywood around that same time, they appeared to be very much together!
In fact, the pair reportedly held hands during their interview, and Jasmin was wearing an engagement ring.
However, the 90 Day Fiance couple repeatedly avoided direct questions about their relationship status.
"You'll have to find out!" Blake teased.
When ET pointed out Blake only had great things to say about Jasmin, he replied, "It's kind of hard not to speak highly of her. Whatever the outcome is of her and I, you know, it's not like I'm going to be like, 'Oh, I'm never talking to her again!'"
"We both tried. It's not like I tried it and failed or something," he added.
Blake acknowledged during the interview it takes "two people" to make a relationship work.
"We had a little bit of a relationship before the proposal and everything like that. It's not like I've known her for a few hours or a couple days. I've known her for a while," Blake said.
Blake reiterated how fans will have to watch and see what happens.
"They show us -- they tap into a little bit of my world and see what I do with music, and they tap into her world with her gymnastics and everything," Blake explained.
Despite moving to a different country, Jasmin suggested her transition wasn't actually a huge adjustment.
"I visited here [the U.S.] before, so I kind of knew where I was moving to," Jasmin noted.
"I've known him for two years, so I feel safe around him. So it was a good thing to move here. It's been great."
Blake also insisted any drama 90 Day Fiance viewers are going to see happened to be "normal, common things" for couples and their frustrations often had to do with the filming process -- not each other.
When ET asked the pair whether they had any regrets about doing the show, Jasmin noted, "I don't have any regrets."
"We try to live life with no regrets," Blake added. "That's my motto right there."
However, Jasmin admitted last year she wasn't looking forward to watching herself on TV.
Blake apparently wanted to star on 90 Day Fiance, and he got Jasmin onboard with the idea.
