Did 90 Day Fiance's Ariela And Biniyam Leave Ethiopia?

Ariela Weinberg 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way TLC

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way couple Ariela Weinberg and Biniyam Shibre have been in the news a bit, as fans from the latest season try their best to figure out what's happening with the couple in the present. Recent news surfaced that the two may be planning a big move in the near future, and now more reports have come up that may confirm the couple has moved on from Ethiopia.

The first reports came from a Reddit post by u/rattqueen, who alleged that she saw the couple while she was at a hotel in Africa. The hotel is not located in Ethiopia, which fueled the speculation Ariela Weinberg and Biniyam Shibre are on the move:

So I am staying at a hotel in Nairobi, Kenya and I was walking in as a woman, a man, and an older woman with a stroller were walking out. I didn’t realize it was them until I heard her voice. Ariella has a very distinctive voice lol. I doubted my sanity and confirmed with social media that indeed, they are at this hotel where I’m staying. Did not flag them down because I was loaded with luggage and they seemed to be on their way somewhere, but I cannot describe how unreasonably excited I was to spot TLC reality stars in the wild.

Normally, it's good practice to take stories like this posted on the internet with no evidence with a grain of salt. With that being said, there is evidence that the couple is currently traveling in Africa, and it comes from none other than Ariela Weinberg's mother.

Janice Weinberg, who was seen by fans on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, has posted pictures that show she is on vacation with Ariela Weinberg, Biniyam Shibre, and their son Aviel. The pictures appear to show the family hanging out at a hotel/resort which, if the internet sitings are to be believed, is in Nairobi.

The apparent vacation in Nairobi comes not long after Biniyam Shibre posted an American flag on his Instagram bio, leading some to believe he's trying to make his way over to America. 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way revealed Biniyam tried to obtain a K1 visa when Ariela first got pregnant but was unable to obtain one. Now, with speculation that K1 restrictions could be eased with the restoration of DACA, perhaps there's a chance that the couple could come to America sometime in the future.

Ariela Weinberg and Biniyam Shibre at least visited Nairobi, which may be a safer place in Africa than the couple's home in Ethiopia at the moment. The country has seen some cultural unrest as of late, which has led to increased ethnic harassment and a mass exodus of people from the region.

90 Day Fiance airs on TLC Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for more on the franchise, and for more news happening in television and movies.
