Are '90 Day Fiance' stars Bilal and Shaeeda still together? A glimpse at the couple's 'rocky' relationship
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI: On '90 Day Fiance,' Bilal Hazziez married Shaeeda Sween for the third time. The '90 Day Fiance' Season 9 couple has caused quite a stir among viewers, owing mostly to Bilal's sneaky and manipulative antics, leaving many to question if they are still together.
With Shaeeda, Bilal sought love once more, but it was clear from the jump that things weren't going well. On Shaeeda's first day in America, Bilal tried to embarrass her by leading her to believe he was much poorer than he actually was. Additionally, they had a heated argument that nearly led to Bilal leaving Shaeeda by the side of the road. It appeared unlikely that these two would walk down the aisle together. Shaeeda and Bilal braved the odds and made it down the aisle in spite of all the indications that things wouldn't work out between them.
What brought Shaeeda and Bilal together?
After barely a week of meeting in person, Bilal and Shaeeda, a Trinidad and Tobago native, concluded they wanted to be married. They had met each other online. Sadly, the pair wouldn't see one other again for more than two years owing to the Covid-19 outbreak. The Missouri native encountered significant difficulties blending his life with the woman who still lived with her parents because of their very different backgrounds. Shaaeda's genuineness in their relationship was questioned by people around him because the divorced father frequently flaunted costly, designer items on social media and made a wonderful life for himself by marketing luxury real estate.
In an episode aired in April, Bilal said to the producers, "I wanted to see if Shaaeda truly wants me for me and not for what I have." After she arrived in the country, the father of two picked her up in a filthy work van and drove her to his old neighborhood rather than his spectacular house. "Shaaeda’s has never, like, seen what I drove. She’s never seen where I live." While speaking about his "prank" in a confessional, he said, "I was hoping that, you know, she would be a little like, ‘Oh, wow, like this is your car.' I didn’t think that it would go the way that it went. The reaction she’s given me is really taking me back that, ah, I’m really questioning some things."
Her honesty would be called into doubt later in the season when Bilal asked his prospective wife to sign a prenup before their wedding. "Do you want to take everything that I have?" Bilal asked Shaaeda a few days before their wedding. However, money isn't their only issue. Shaaeda is considering having children, which is something Bilal is hesitant about. Nevertheless, the yoga enthusiast was able to include a provision in the prenup regarding her getting pregnant before 40.
In Touch exclusively revealed that Bilal and Shaaeda married on December 18, 2021, in Lees Summit, Missouri. The couple's stunning ceremony aired on a TLC program in August. "What the future look like together, I hope Bilal and I can work on our communication, as we get to know each other more," the Trinidad beauty stated alongside her new husband after their wedding. "I hope I will be a mother soon. Like, it’s so important to me to have children, and I hope you could like, you know, want to be a dad sooner than later."
"A dad for the third time, you mean?" Bilal responded.
Is Bilal still with Shaaeda?
Bilal and Shaaeda continue to thrive! Following their wedding, the couple returned for Season 7 of '90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?' to continue their journey. Shaaeda is more than ready to be a mother, while the two are still enjoying wedding life. The series follows the couple as they deal with difficulties of trust, desertion, and infertility.
Furthermore, fans of '90 Day Fiance' have grounds to assume that Shaeeda and Bilal are expecting their first child together. Many people were skeptical that Bilal and Shaeeda would marry because of their cultural differences, the prenup controversy, and the intervention of his ex-wife Shahidah. Shaeeda had to show that she was not a gold digger and that her goals were sincere. When things didn't go Shaeeda's way, Bilal didn't waste time lecturing her. Shaeeda eventually added conditions to the contract that were beneficial to her.
One was about Bilal assisting her in starting her own business in the United States, and the other was about him giving her a kid before she was 40. Fans believe that "good news" is on the way now that Bilal and Shaeeda are blissfully married, if not per their on-screen drama on '90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?' Season 7, but based on their Instagram. During the Tell-All, Shaeeda stated that Bilal understood how to "not to get a woman pregnant," yet in a video the pair posted on Instagram on August 24, they dropped multiple hints that they were expecting a child. Bilal and Shaeeda shot themselves in a children's apparel store for the reel. Bilal and Shaeeda stop for a seat on a park bench while taking a romantic stroll across their city. Shaeeda, touches her tummy and looks down at it before receiving a beautiful kiss from Bilal. Fans quickly replied, "She's pregnant," and, "I feel a pregnancy announcement coming!!!!!!!" but given their contractual obligations, it's doubtful that Bilal or Shaeeda responded to these comments on the video.
A few days later, Shaeeda shared a cryptic story on her Instagram, fueling suspicions that her greatest goal of becoming a mother was finally coming true. "Thank you Allah! Thank you Allah! Thank you Allah!" Shaeeda wrote on September 8 with no context on her Instagram story. While it appeared to be a vague posting on Shaeeda's behalf, fans interpreted it as she was expecting and unable to contain her enthusiasm.
While Shaeeda definitely has baby fever, Bilal believes that when a couple has a child, "life stops." Bilal said he and Shaeeda were not "ready" to have a child and must first "work on living together." Shaeeda said that she met with a fertility professional in order to plan ahead and determine how much time she has left. Some fans have speculated that Bilal was opposed to having a third kid because he may have undergone a vasectomy. In that scenario, '90 Day Fiance' pair Bilal and Shaeeda's pregnancy hints make no sense, yet there is speculation over how he may have reversed the vasectomy.
