Emily, a 29-year-old from Portland, OR, and Sasha, a 32-year-old from Moscow, Russia, are starring on Season 7 of 90 Day Fiance, which premiered in early November on TLC.
When the season began taping, Emily had already been living in Volgograd, Russia for three years.
Emily, a former party girl and rave goer, had taken a job in Russia after finishing college, but she quickly came to realize living in Volgograd was a mistake.
Not only did Emily struggle to speak and read the local language, but she also said the city was deteriorating, the weather was freezing, and she had no friends.
"As a young American girl in Russia, I was so lonely. I joined [a] gym because I wanted to be social, and that is where I met my hot personal trainer, Sasha," Emily said in a video on TLC's website.
Emily thought Sasha was really handsome, and she loved his gorgeous eyes and biceps. Emily said Sasha seemed humble and had good vibes and had expressed interest in her life as an American.
As they dated, Emily was able to tutor Sasha in English.
Sasha graduated quickly from personal trainer and tutor to boyfriend, and then after the couple got serious for about two years, Emily became pregnant.
One day, the couple got takeout for dinner and Sasha proposed marriage to her in an elevator. Emily said it was such a huge surprise but she said "yes." Afterward, Emily applied for a K-1 visa so they could live in America together.
But Sasha had a lot of baggage. Specifically, Emily learned that Sasha was already twice divorced and has a son with each of his two ex-wives.
"Sasha just made mistakes in the past and he happened to marry those mistakes, but we're different. Our relationship it perfect," Emily said in a TLC video.
Although there was a pattern of Sasha getting women pregnant and the relationships falling apart, Emily insisted, "I am going to be Sasha's third wife. This is his third child with another woman, but we're going to last."
Emily had hope her relationship with Sasha would last and they'd live happily together in the United States.
Just after 90 Day Fiance released a promo video featuring Sasha's first wife, Emily teased in her Instagram Stories, "What have I gotten myself into?"
In the premiere episode of90 Day Fiance's seventh season, Emily was just over 39 weeks pregnant, so she was unable to travel back to America to have her baby. The baby was due in just four days and Emily didn't want to leave her fiance behind.
Emily's family worried Sasha would eventually leave her for Wife No. 4 and she'd be stuck raising a child alone, but Emily had confidence in Sasha and their relationship.
Emily told Sasha that he was all she had and she needed him, so Sasha promised he would stay with her and take care of her. Sasha insisted he wasn't going to divorce again because he's "actually a good guy" and wanted to prove that to his new fiancee.
Emily was convinced Sasha would be a great father to her child since he was already a great parent to his two children from previous relationships.
Emily and Sasha were then shown meeting up with Sasha's first ex-wife, Masha, at a restaurant when Emily was nine months pregnant.
Emily said Sasha married Masha at age 22 and they welcomed a son named Daniel together. Emily said their relationship was "doomed to fail," and Sasha claimed it was because Masha was "a difficult" and "crazy" person.
After the divorce, Emily claimed Sasha met his second wife "a few years" after he divorced his first wife and the pair also welcomed a son.
Sasha said everything was okay in the beginning, but when he became more muscular due to landing a job in fitness, the wife was no longer attracted to him. Sasha therefore divorced her and began looking for someone else.
Emily wanted to meet Masha so they could establish a friendly relationship and Masha would trust her going forward with Daniel. Emily was hoping Daniel would be able to visit her in the United States once she and Sasha moved there together.
Masha, however, had a different story about her breakup from Sasha, alleging to the cameras Sasha had left her for another woman.
"Sasha and I dated for a year. Then we were married for a year and got divorced because he met his second wife. She got pregnant, and he came to me and said, 'I want a divorce,'" Masha claimed.
Masha wasn't happy about the idea of Sasha leaving the country when he had two other children to worry about and take care of. She called him a selfish man.
"Where the wind blows... a man flies," Masha vented to 90 Day Fiance's producers during a recent episode. "His family will not keep him. His children will not keep him.. Men only think about themselves."
Six months of time had passed following David's birth, and Emily couldn't help feeling a little resentful because Sasha hadn't applied for the passport right when their son was born like he was supposed to.
Emily admitted she and Sasha fought often about his mistake.
Emily was also exhausted from taking care of the baby all on her own since Sasha apparently worked "all the time" from 5:30AM to 11PM. Emily said she and Sasha had no time as a couple and she felt very isolated and alone. Emily was also sad Sasha hadn't been able to bond with his child.
Emily said Sasha spent about five hours a week with his son, so she was worried Sasha may not be able to handle the responsibilities of being a father while she works a day job in America.
Sasha had always been the working parent while his exes stayed home with his children, so Emily pointed out Sasha had a lot to learn -- from changing diapers to taking the baby on strolls.
"Speak to him, play with him. He can't just be in the chair all day," Emily said.
"Okay. Do I have a choice?" Sasha asked.
Emily was upset and said Sasha's behavior made her sad. Emily said Sasha should be happy to spend time with his baby and want to take advantage of their time together.
Sasha, on the other hand, thought Emily was worrying about the baby too much and he didn't deserve to be nagged. Sasha said Emily was constantly finding reasons to argue, which is what had happened in a past relationship once a child was welcomed into the picture.
On the latest episode, Emily and Sasha had packed their whole life together into a few suitcases, and they were prepared to leave Moscow, Russia, and catch their flight to the United States.
Sasha hoped Emily would be motivated to exercise and work out in America, and so she felt a lot of pressure to lose her baby weight fast, especially since Sasha planned to be a fitness model in America.
Sasha only packed a couple pairs of shorts and a few shirts, so Emily started questioning whether Sasha was really "all in" and committed to her and their relationship. Sasha's dismissive attitude about packing his belongings worried Emily.
Emily wanted to see some emotion from Sasha, such as excitement or nervousness, but he appeared to be cool as a cucumber. Emily warned Sasha her mother didn't know everything about his past and so maybe he did have a reason to be nervous, especially since he was going to meet her family for the first time in America.
Sasha was so excited to travel to America. He knew he would miss his other children, but Sasha looked forward to becoming successful in the United States and opening up his own gym. Sasha also couldn't wait to swim in the Pacific Ocean.
Although Sasha's parents knew they were going to miss their son, they were thrilled for Sasha to start a better life in a new country and have more opportunities.
But Emily was overwhelmed with emotion. Not only did she have to travel with an infant, but Emily knew she'd have to find a new job as well as a place for her family to live in the United States. Emily also feared her family wouldn't accept Sasha or grow to love him.
Emily and Sasha then said goodbye to Sasha's parents at the airport and it was an emotional moment for all involved.
"Everything will be fine," Sasha's father told him while they embraced. "We all love you. You did all this. Everything is for a reason. It's not in vain, understand? You grab your luck and you hold it."
Sasha promised his parents that he wouldn't let them down, and then his father said, "We want you to live a good normal life. Not like we do here."
Are Emily and Sasha still together? Did the 90 Day Fiance couple ever get married?
Emily graduated from Idaho State University with a Bachelor's degree in English Education in December of 2015 and then she packed up her bags and moved to Volgograd in January of 2016, according to Starcasm.
Emily reportedly shared a video of her "coworkers" in Russia singing her "Happy Birthday" in February of that year.
Emily's Facebook page indicates she and Sasha started dating in June 2016, given the first photo of them looking like a couple on social media was posted on September 2016.
"Missing you already," Emily captioned the picture. "See you soon in #Moscow babe #love."
In December 2016, Emily wrote that she couldn't wait to move to Moscow.
Emily reportedly moved to Moscow not long after that post because most of her photos from 2017 were taken in Moscow, and Sasha is present in many of them.
Emily and Sasha announced their engagement on Facebook on February 27, 2017.
The 90 Day Fiance couple welcomed their son together in Russia in November 2018.
Emily and Sasha apparently got married in the United States during the 90-day requirement of Sasha's K-1 visa because Emily changed her name to Emily Larina -- the traditional Russian feminine version Sasha's surname -- on Instagram on February 17, 2019.
"I haven't changed the name on my passport yet. But I wanted to take this username before anyone else. Also, I love my fam #family #happiness," Emily captioned a photo of Sasha, herself and their baby.
In addition, they both appear to currently be living in the United States.
Emily's Facebook indicates she's currently working in Portland, Oregon, and Sasha's Facebook and Twitter profiles both indicate he's now living in Portland as well.
Emily, Sasha and their son moved to the United States in May 2019, according to Starcasm, so the couple had until late August to wed or else Sasha would've had to return to Russia.
In early September, Sasha shared a selfie with Emily at what appeared to be a cousin's wedding in Russia.
Emily has not posted any photos of Sasha on her Instagram account, but she has shared many nostalgic photos of herself during her time in Russia.
Emily has made it clear she is definitely living in the United States with her son.
On October 16, Emily posted a photo of herself with the baby and wrote, "I've been thinking about Moscow and the people I miss about it lately. 1. I miss how real people are there. Russia taught me to be real and direct about what I want... 2. There is this stereotype that Russians are unemotional/ cold. That couldn't be further from the truth. When a Russian person knows you and loves you, it's true and real."
She continued, "In America, we are so quick to call classmates, coworkers, etc. 'friends.' In Russia, the title of friend is earned. You can count on them for the rest of your life... 3. The architecture and history is great there. I'm glad my son will be able to spend summers there and learn the language. It will always be forever a part of him."
Emily hinted she's still together with Sasha when she defended him on Instagram in mid-November in light of Masha's claims in the second episode of 90 Day Fiance's seventh season that aired on TLC.
Emily took to her Instagram Stories and denied that Sasha got his second wife pregnant while still married to his first wife, according to screenshots captured by 90 Day Fiance Instagrammer John Yates.
Emily claims Sasha's ex-wife Masha lied about him getting his second wife pregnant while he was still married to his first wife.
Emily posted alleged photos of Sasha and Masha's Russian divorce certificate as well as what appeared to be the Russian birth certificate of Sasha's second child.
"Sasha and Masha's divorce certificate from 2012," Emily wrote on one document, which appeared to be written in Russian.
And on another document, Emily claimed, "Sasha's second son wasn't born until 2014."
Considering there was allegedly a two-year gap from when Sasha and Masha divorced and when his second wife welcomed her baby, the documents -- if valid -- appear to demonstrate Sasha was no longer married to Masha when he got his second wife pregnant.
Emily also shared a slideshow of photos of her son David, some of which also featured Sasha, on November 17 on Instagram, which was a few days after the90 Day Fiance episode showing his birth aired on TLC.
"I'm so glad the world got to meet our perfect, sweet David Alexandrovich Larin. He is the sweetest baby I could ever ask for. Thank you Dr. Vitaliy Vladimirovich for your kindness and making me feel safe while I was giving birth in Russia. Thank you nurse Galina (I don't know your patronym you wouldn't let me address you so formally) for your support during the labor," Emily wrote.
"Our little baby is quite an international guy. He's Russian/Ukrainian/Armenian/Irish etc. I think he'll grow up to be a diplomat. P.s. Sasha DOES remember where he was the day his other sons were born. He's told me many times. He was just exhausted. #90dayfiance #babyboy."
As for Sasha, he hinted he was in the United States by posting a photo of himself driving a car, which he had captioned, "Exploring... new places. Our land is so interesting."
When Sasha thanked a couple people for being able to explore in his Mercedes Benz, Emily commented, "And Emily!"
Emily's comment suggested Sasha should thank her as well for his new opportunities in what appears to be America.
More recently, Sasha gave away he's still living in America by posting a photo of himself next to an American flag in mid-December. He added hashtags such as "far from home," "michigan," and "great lakes."
And then on December 12, Sasha posted a selfie with Emily and wrote alongside it, "Sometimes you need to clean your mind from negative emotions. The best way is just walking around and enjoying the beautiful nature #anotherland #nature #walking #fitnesseverywhere #enjoinglife #lifeisgood #cleanyourmind #america #usa #lifemotivation #90dayfiance #90dayfianceseason7."
As for Emily, she conducted a Q&A session with her followers on Instagram on mid-December and gushed about Sasha, showing they're still an item.
When asked how she and Sasha are doing as well as their baby, Emily replied, "All I can say now is Sasha is a great father. The baby is doing great!"
One fan hoped Sasha is spending more time with his son, and Emily assured the person, "He's a very good father."
Emily also made it clear she loves Sasha enough to give up her life in the United States.
"If Sasha would've been denied a visa to the US, would you have stayed in Russia to be with him?" a follower asked.
"Yes," Emily replied.
Emily also revealed she'd "maybe" be interested in starring on a 90 Day Fiance spinoff with Sasha but she doesn't want to welcome another baby for about five years.
As for whether she regrets appearing on Season 7 of 90 Day Fiance, Emily replied, "Yes and no. I'm so glad to have an amazing video of my son being born. They did cut out a lot of our back story. Too complicated I guess."
