90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way's Armando's Tragic Story
TLC has re-hooked fans with the 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way couple Kenneth and Armando. The two have a beautiful love story that lacks green card or financial gain, and fans have also been connecting with the incredible struggles each has gone through to get to this point such as Armando's Mexican culture which is unaccepting of his homosexuality.
In their introductory episode, we learned that Armando tried to suppress his sexuality and true feelings so he married a woman and had a child with her. He then gained the courage to tell his wife and family the truth who rejected his sexuality and forced him back into the closet. Then tragically the mother of Armando's daughter died in a horrific car accident.
"Unfortunately, about two or three months after we had separated, she passed away in an accident. Her car actually flipped out of the road, and she died on the scene. She was my best friend, so that was very hard."
Articles surfaced that Armando's ex-wife died while pregnant in a car chase with Armando so fans have been imploring him for details and he responded on social media. On his Instagram story, Armando explained: "This message is to clear up my daughter's mother's passing. I am addressing this to clear up any confusion as I did not want to go into specifics on the show but now I find it necessary."
Armando detailed how the two had been separated but working on their friendship and co-parenting but at one point after an argument about finances, he left the discussion to go home. "After that, 15-20 minutes later I was driving down the highway and I was shocked when I was suddenly struck from behind and then was hit again. As I continued down the highway I then realized it was my ex-wife and before I knew it she lost control of her vehicle and passed away on the scene."

Today she insisted on various occasions "daddy, I'm sleeping with you ok?!" She made certain she wouldn't spend another night without me. She's been out of town for the last couple of weeks, even though she had an excellent time turns out she had been constantly asking to sleep with daddy. I can feel her love and how protected and loved she feels by me, a completely unexplainable wonderful feeling. Earlier I joked around and asked if she wanted to go back to her aunts in Phoenix and she replied "daddy, only if you're going". I love her! #daddy #daddysgirl #goodnight #sleepy #love #daughter #dad
He concluded the story with "As you can understand this was a very tragic event in the life of my daughter and I as we lost her and an unborn baby. This was a very difficult moment for everyone involved, myself, our family, our friends, and has been a long grieving process and out of respect for my daughter's mother and her memory, I ask for your empathy and understanding on this personal tragedy. Thank you."
Fans have been incredibly supportive and proud of him for telling his story and making sure his daughter is well taken care of and loved. Tune onto TLC on Monday nights at 9/8c to watch Armando and Kenneth's journey on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way.
