[90 Day Fiance Spoiler Warning: This report includes spoilers that reveal if Kenny and Armando split up or if the 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way couple is still together.]

Kenneth, a 57-year-old from St. Petersburg, FL who goes by Kenny, and Armando, a 31-year-old from San Felipe, Mexico, met by chance on a social media page that served as a support group for gay fathers.

Armando welcomed a daughter Hannah, who was six years old at the time of filming, with his late wife, who had tragically passed away in a car accident.

Kenny is dad to a son Bricen and triplet daughters -- Taylor, Cassidy and Madison -- who are all in their twenties. He welcomed his children with a friend who had been willing to undergo in vitro fertilization.

Kenny and Armando started out their relationship by just being friends for about a year until Kenny visited Armando in Mexico and Armando made the first move. The pair struck a romance and fell in love.

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way's second season premiered with Kenny preparing to leave his children in the United States and move to Mexico to start a life with Armando and Hannah.

Kenny's family was very supportive of his relationship with Armando, but Armando had yet to tell his parents Virginia and Armando Sr. that he's gay -- and Armando certainly didn't mention Kenny yet to his parents.

(Armando said he came out to his parents once before but their emotional reaction sent him "back into the closet" for a while.)

In fact, Armando claimed there were cameras around because a documentary was being filmed about a life in Mexico, not about his blossoming relationship with Kenny.

Armando was shown having an emotional conversation with his parents about being gay on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. While Virginia and Armando Sr. had a hard time accepting the news, they told their son that they loved him the same.

After a long drive to Mexico with his 15-year-old dog Truffles, Kenny reunited with Armando in their new apartment, which was several hours away from Armando's parents, and they both said it was a "dream come true."

Kenny quickly had to adjust to life in a different country considering he didn't speak the language or know how to use the currency. Kenny's apartment also had no central heat or air conditioners, and the nearest bank was 40 minutes away.

Armando also wasn't used to public displays of affection with a man, and he refused to hold Kenny's hand or kiss him while the pair walked around their neighborhood.

"I have to admit I am worried about our safety as a gay couple. Our culture is very macho-centric and people in Mexico are still homophobic... I'm afraid that we might get hurt," Armando told the cameras.

Later on, Kenny proposed marriage to Armando in front of his daughters Taylor and Cassidy, who flew to Mexico for the special occasion.

The men hugged after Kenny popped the question and put a ring on Armando's finger on the rocks by a beach. Armando told Kenny that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with him, and Kenny said in reply, "You are perfect."

Armando and Kenny were on Cloud 9 until the pair went out for tacos with Kenny's daughters and a person walked by them and muttered a homophobic slur.

While at the table, Armando touched and tickled Kenny, which seemingly marked Armando's first attempt at PDA since Kenny's move to Mexico.

TLC censored the TLC expletive, but Armando appeared to reveal the man had said in Spanish, "Adios f-gg-t."

Armando was clearly upset and shaken by the derogatory slur, but Kenny asked his partner not to give haters the power they were after.

Armando, however, gathered up the courage to introduce Kenny to his parents. Virginia admitted it was "strange" to see her son with a man, and Armando Sr. didn't show up at first because he was allegedly "tired."

Armando Sr. did eventually come outside to hug his son, and he shook Kenny's hand. It was definitely a nervewracking moment for Armando, and the meet and greet was very quick before Armando Sr. went back into the house.

Armando wished his father had more of an interaction with Kenny, who was also "very disappointed" Armando Sr. didn't want to get to know him better.

The group was shocked to discover Kenny was engaged, as Armando's news was met with silence. Kenny told Armando's friends and family, however, the engagement wasn't a quick and spontaneous decision -- but he knew it was "a lot" for them to take in.

"I can tell that she's embarrassed and that she's hurt by this announcement. And I'm sad. I'm sad for Armando that his mother took it as something horrible and not as something beautiful," Kenny said in a confessional.

Virginia expected her husband would also be surprised by the engagement news, and so she actually planned to hide the news from Armando Sr.

"It wasn't the reaction I had hoped for, but it was definitely the reaction I had expected, especially from my dad," Armando told the cameras.

The tense and emotional evening, however, ended with Kenny and Armando embracing and expressing their love for one another. They at least had Hannah's love and support, which Armando said was "the best feeling in the world."

"I know my dad needs time to accept me. I can tell my mom's still not thrilled about Kenny and I being engaged, and her telling me that she would have preferred I tell her in private shows me that she's still struggling with it, and maybe in some ways she feels embarrassed that I'm gay," Armando said in a confessional.

"But she needs to learn how to accept me without worrying about what anybody says or who is around."

Armando told his mother that he wanted a real wedding instead of just signing marriage papers at a registry and he hoped for her love and support. Armando wanted his wedding day to be a joyful celebration, and his mother agreed to attend the party.

Armando then had a tearful goodbye when he officially moved out of his parents' house and took Hannah with him. Armando Sr. even made an appearance to bid Armando farewell, and he also shook Kenny's hand.

Both men were ready to start a life together -- open and proud -- and Kenny just hoped Hannah would look at him as a parent and know that he only wanted the best for her.

Armando and Kenny's first family outing was to a local market where toys and treats were being sold. Armando said it felt surreal to be with Kenny in this moment and it was something he had always pictured.

Armando, however, asked Kenny to take a Spanish class because Armando felt like he was taking care of two people since Kenny spoke English in a Spanish-speaking country.

And Kenny quickly came to realize he and Armando had very different parenting styles. Kenny said Armando let Hannah do whatever she wanted and spoiled her while he was the opposite.

Kenny called Armando "a pushover," and although Armando wasn't thrilled with the comment, he acknowledged he should let Kenny in and help him co-parent.

Kenny and Armando later headed to a marriage office to apply for a marriage license.

Not only was Kenny still madly in love with Armando, but Kenny also wanted permanent residency in Mexico as well as the opportunity to start working and making money.

Armando and Kenny already had to write a letter requesting to get married considering they're a same-sex couple. Armando felt roadblocks had already been put in place for them.

Kenny felt he and Armando had to essentially ask for permission to wed in Mexico, and Kenny was upset they had to go through such hoops just to be together.

"Same-sex marriage in Mexico have been legal since 2015, but I have read articles that same-sex couples have had troubles getting their licenses approved," Armando explained to the cameras.

"Gay marriage in Mexico is still looked down upon because of the culture... In some ways, it's like we're back in time."

When Kenny and Armando met with a civil registry clerk, Armando presented the petition letter for a same-sex marriage. Armando said same-sex marriage in Mexico is legal, but the registry clerk said the pair wouldn't be able to receive their marriage license due to "a law that states, 'No you can't."

"And we have a constitution that says, 'Yes you can,'" the registry clerk explained. "Sadly, we don't have legislation that supports us to reform our code -- the one that says we still can't allow same-sex marriage to go through."

Armando didn't understand what was happening because the woman had provided contradictory information to him.

"I don't even think seven words were spoken, and [the license] was denied," Kenny told the cameras. "It wasn't even a discussion. That's their protocol, to deny you right away."

Armando, however, learned "alternative measures" could be taken, such as going to the Human Rights Commission and submitting a complaint that declares being denied the right to marry violates a basic human right.

The registry clerk anticipated Armando would receive a timely, positive response and she would do everything in her power to support them and guide them along in the process.

Kenny still found the turn of events discouraging because he didn't want to have to fight a war to marry someone he loves. The couple had to wait a week to hear back from the Human Rights Commission, and they decided to hope for the best, knowing nothing is ever guaranteed.

"We're gonna get married, babe," Armando told his partner with hope.

Kenny wondered whether more problems awaited them in the future, such as finding a wedding venue and caterer willing to participate in their nuptials. He and Armando wondered how many fights they'd have to fight in order to marry legally.

In Kenny and Armando's official letter of denial from the civil registry clerk, it read same-sex marriage was not permitted in Mexico in order to "save the human species" and preserve union for men and women.

Armando and Kenny couldn't believe the wording in the letter, and Armando called it "humiliating."

"We are part of the human race," Kenny argued, adding that he felt "very defeated."


Did Kenny and Armando break up or is the 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way couple still together now?

Kenneth posted a photo of his "proud family" featuring Armando, Hannah and himself in which they were throwing confetti into the air in mid-November.

"No one knows your journey but you, stand on every brick they throw to knock you down. Celebrate life, celebrate love! Fight for what you believe," Kenny captioned the image.

"#90dayfiance #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway #kennethandarmando #proudfamily."

Kenny also shared a slideshow of images showing pictures of Armando and himself being affectionate with each other.

"When hate is loud, love is louder...everyone deserves to love who they love. #loveforall #equallove #loveislove #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway #kennethandarmando," Kenny wrote alongside the pictures.

Around the same time, Armando uploaded a photo of Kenny kissing him on the cheek and captioned it, "Be known for your kindness & love. #spreadlove #positivity #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway #90daytheotherway."

In early November, Kenny drove home the point he's in a very happy family by posting a photo of Hannah.

And on October 26, Kenny also uploaded a picture of Hannah holding their dog Truffles, which suggests Kenny is still living in Mexico and his beloved senior dog has become Hannah's pet.

On September 26, Kenny shared a romantic black-and-white photo of the couple standing on a balcony with a beautiful landscape in the background.

"The sky's the limit... #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway," Kenny captioned the picture.

Ten days earlier, Kenny uploaded a photo of Armando and himself arm-in-arm at a winery and wrote, "Cheers to Mexican Independence Day," alongside the image.

Around that same time, Armando wrote "love is love" with a red-heart emoji on his Instagram account when posting a photo with Kenny.

On September 2, Kenny posted a cute photo of Armando and himself forming hearts with their hands.

"We are sending [love]! We will miss you during the mid-season break! #sendinglove #loveislove #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway #gaycouple," Kenny captioned the photo.

Going back to late August, Kenny wrote on Instagram, "We choose to live life as we sit fit. #gaycouple."

Kenny made the post after the 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way episode aired in which a man in Mexico used a homophobic slur to describe Kenny and Armando's relationship while the two men were out at a restaurant eating tacos with two of Kenny's daughters.

Kenny subsequently wrote on Instagram, "Everyone should have the right to live our lives as we see fit. We won't let someone have our power to live and love. #thepoweroflove #lovewins #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway."

On August 18, Kenny captioned a still photo of Armando and himself from the show and wrote alongside it, "With sharing our story with the world, we wanted to show...When two people are in love, nothing is impossible, anything is achievable. #lovehasnoboundries #gaycouple #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway #loveislove."

Kenny also gushed about his love for Armando on social media in mid-August after his marriage proposal aired on television, suggesting the couple is still happy and together.

Kenny posted a video of Armando saying "yes" to marriage and the men kissing each other, and he captioned it, "This was the best moment and the best day ever! Thank you everyone for the amazing reaction, love and support! Love is love #love is love #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway."

Kenny later posted a photo of Armando showing off his engagement ring.

"You just know when it's right. #loveislove #lovewins #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway," Kenny captioned the image.

As for Armando, he posted a photo with Kenny from their dinner post-engagement.

"I said yes! #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway #90daytheotherway #proposal #engagement #lgbt #gay #pride #love #tlc," Armando wrote alongside the sweet picture of the men smiling in front of a big bouquet of flowers.

In late July, Kenny gushed about making a relationship work on his Instagram account.

"What real relationships are about," Kenny captioned a photo with Armando in which they were both sitting in front of an iconic Jesus statue in Mexico.

"Yes differences but then understanding, communication, compromising and in the end moving forward together. #jesusloveslove #90dayfiance #90fiancetheotherway."

Around that same time, Armando posted what appeared to be a throwback photo with Kenny in which they were soaking in a sunset together.

"Two worlds, One love," Armando wrote, along with a heart emoji and two Earth emojis. "#90dayfiance #90daytheotherway #90dayfiancetheotherway #gay #lgbt #pride #love #tlc #jesuslove."

Kenny also gushed this past summer about how he grew to love Mexico, hinting he "is" still living there.

"One of the many things I love about Mexico is the beautiful sky, the stars were never so bright... never more at peace, it was (is) serenity," Kenny captioned an image of himself looking at the sky on Instagram, along with a smiley face.

In mid-June, Armando and Cassidy, Kenny's daughter, made it clear they've become extremely close!

Cass captioned a promo video for 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, "The time is now!! Get to know my family and hear my dads story airing TONIGHT at 9/8c on @tlc for the official premier of @90dayfiance:the other way @kenneth_90day @armando_90day."

Armando replied with an emoticon that has stars for eyes and then Cassidy wrote to him, "@armando_90day I love love love you! So excited."

Armando sweetly responded, "@cultivation.and.inspiration love youuuu!! Here we go!"

Around that same time, Kenny hinted he and Armando are still in "love" during an interview with E! News.

When asked why they signed up for 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Kenny explained, "We both went into this wanting to tell our story. We want to show our love and we want people to see that. I said in one of the teasers, love is a powerful thing. Love can stop wars. We're hoping that love can melt hearts and love can open minds."

Kenny added that he hopes viewers "might tune in and watch out story and they might change their minds and open their hearts even wider."

According to hints made by Kenny's daughter Cass Niedermeier in late April, Kenny and Armando were still living together in Mexico at the time.

"Seriously missin my daddy.... can't believe you moved to Mexico almost 5 months ago, life is not the same around here w/ out you, I miss seeing your face and hearing your voice all the time," Cass wrote April 28 on Instagram in a since-deleted post.

"Literally in tears right now writing this, my daddy is my best friend and although I am so happy he's livin his best life in Mexico with the love of his life, my heart isn't the same without him around."

Kenny revealed October 27, 2019 on Instagram he was moving to Mexico to be with Armando soon.

"#Countdown, little over a month and our #forever starts. #love him #gaycouple #movingforlove #mexico #maydecember #proudofhim #instagay #lucky," Kenny captioned a selfie of the couple.

Armando replied, "Can't come soon enough my love! Been waiting for this moment so long, will be the best."

Kenny's house in Florida sold in July 2019 for close to $350,000, and then he left for Mexico four months later on November 30 with his dog Truffles on a four-day road trip, Starcasm reported.

"When I left my hometown of Toledo Ohio when I was 19, I was running away from something, running from who I couldn't be... in Florida I found myself and who I was meant to be!," Kenny reportedly wrote in part on Instagram at the time.

"Tomorrow I am running again, not away, but towards something, to love, #lovewins #loveislove"
