Paola ‘Pao’ Mayfield and Russ met in Colombia and tied the knot in Russ’ hometown Oklahoma back in 2013. Their relationship was showcased in the very first season of 90 Day Fiancé.

The couple’s relationship was going great and the two were very much in love despite cultural differences. In 2018, Pao and Russ shared the news that she was pregnant with their first child. Their son Axel was born in January 2019.

The coronavirus pandemic has affected many couples differently, some have gotten closer than one while others have needed a break from being together.

According to US Magazine, last year in August 2021, the pair announced that they would be taking a break from their marriage. However, the relationship didn’t end in divorce and instead attended couples therapy “to work on the issues”.

Fast forward until now, they seemed to have found their way back to each other and are living their own happy fairytale.
