90 Day Fiance Seasons: 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, Season 1 and Season 2, and 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Season 1

Current Status: Still together

Paul Staehle from Louisville, KY, and Karine Martins from Brazil appeared on both seasons of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. The pair wed in 2017 in a ceremony that aired in 2018.

Paul and Karine announced they had a baby on the way in October 2018, which is the same month when fans learned the child's sex and Karine's name choice.

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days showed the couple going through many ups and downs, including Karine threatening to divorce her husband shortly after saying "I do," but the pregnancy apparently brought them closer together.

During the Tell-All special for the spinoff's second season, Paul revealed he was back in the United States after his long stay in Brazil trying to make and save money so he could eventually provide for his family in the United States.

Karine and Paul announced in March 2019 they had welcomed their first child together, a baby boy named Pierre.

In June 2019, they returned to TLC as part of the Season 1 cast of 90 Day Fiance's new 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way spinoff.

Despite the issues that had plagued their relationship, Karine and Paul were still an item and married.

Initially, the big news was that while 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way's first season showed Paul moving to Brazil to be with Karine, the couple ended up moving to the United States after the season's filming concluded.

In June, eyewitnesses took photos of Paul and Karine at the airport together in Louisville, Kentucky.

And then Karine confirmed her location by posting photos on her Instagram Stories of Paul and herself visiting local attractions in Louisville.

Paul, Karine, their baby, and Paul's mother all posed for a picture in front of the entrance of the Louisville Zoo.

Karine also shared a picture of the exterior of Louisville's Hard Rock Cafe, suggesting the couple also visited the Fourth Street Live entertainment and shopping complex downtown. 

In July, Paul also shared a family photo of Karine, the baby and himself at a Fourth of July cookout. Paul had revealed Karine had received a CR-1 spousal visa in an Instagram Stories posting in February.

However, in November the couple returned to Brazil with their young son and Paul took to social media and announced Karine had started divorce proceedings in her home country.

"Karine started divorce proceedings in Manaus," he wrote in Portuguese.

Two hours after the divorce posting, Paul uploaded a video to his Instagram Stories saying Karine and their son would be going to Tonantins on the Amazon River, which is over 500 miles upstream from Manaus, the following day.

Paul implied he was not invited to join his family on the trip, but he did not reveal his own plans.

"Tomorrow, little buddy goes with Karine to Tonantins on the boat. I'll miss you, little guy! I'm going to miss you so much. Do you hear me? Dad's going to miss you!" Paul said in a sweet voice.

Karine is originally from a remote village in Tonantins, but she and Paul were living in an apartment in Manaus before they moved to Louisville.

According to Paul he planned to follow Karine -- who subsequently confirmed her divorce plans to the press -- up the Amazon to try to convince her to live "with Pierre in USA with or without me."

"I just want the best possible life for my son... I have to get back to work soon so I pray this ends as positively as possible," he wrote in an Instagram Stories posting.

But Paul's efforts apparently failed, as he revealed he was returning to the United States alone in late November.

"Tomorrow I board a boat back to Manaus to fly home," Paul wrote in another Instagram Stories posting. "I will miss Pierre very much."

However, in early December Paul and Karine made social media postings revealing they were back in America together and Karine had apparently called off her divorce plans.

"I thank God we came to a peaceful agreement and have returned home safe," Paul shared on Instagram.

Karine also took to her own Instagram account and posted photos with Paul, her parents and their eight-month-old son Pierre.

"Spending time with my family and away from Instagram, haters and opinionated people is the best thing," Karine captioned the photos in Portuguese as they posed next to Christmas-themed baked goods at what appeared to be an event in Brazil.

"My family does me good and give me peace. We are a humble family but it is a home where there is love and unity. I love you so much and just thank God for having a family that makes me so happy. I miss you so much. Family forever and ever."
