'90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?' Season 7: Yara feels its 'worst time to have any kids' as Jovi suggests expanding the family
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC: Yara Zaya is irritated by Jovi Dufren's desire to save the marriage with a second child if it means he can "control me more." The couple now has a two-year-old daughter called Myla, but Yara has no plans to expand their family anytime soon.
Jovi and Yara, the '90 Day Fiance' pair, have been going through a rough patch. They met during one of his work trips. What was meant to be a one-night stand turned into something deeper as the duo ended up dating for six months. However, once Yara got pregnant, Jovi proposed to her. Things, however, were not going as planned. Jovi's profession as an ROV supervisor in underwater robotics required him to be away from her for weeks at a time. Yara was completely alone. The long-distance romance quickly deteriorated. Their daughter was the one that brought them together. Now that things aren't going well between them and Jovi believes that having another child will save their marriage.

In a sneak peek of the upcoming episode, Jovi proposes expanding their family, which he believes would bring him and Yara closer together again. Myla is already here. As Yara considers traveling to Europe with Myla to be closer to her struggling family, Jovi goes to great lengths to convince her to return to America. During their journey to Europe, Jovi sayd, "I was actually thinking, if you want to come back home, how do you think you would feel about us having another baby?" "You want to have another baby?" Yara seemed surprised by Jovi's question.
Jovi admits in a confessional that he doesn't want to be an "old dad," thus the timing may be good to conceive again. "I've also been thinking, maybe a child could strengthen our relationship," he says. "If Yara got pregnant again, I feel like it would bring us closer."
Yara, on the other hand, isn't convinced and wonders, "This is, like, serious right now?" She tells Jovi emphatically, "No, because I will be the person who will raise them. You're always at work. No. No." Later, in a confessional, she explains, "Hearing Jovi bring up another baby, it's like, I honestly don't know where it's coming from. I want another baby in the future, but it's definitely not a close future. At least in four years or something — I don't want another baby now. It's honestly the worst time to have any kids right now."
"Now's the time to do it — not to wait," Jovi tells Yara.
She joins the dots. "So now because I say maybe I want to stay in Europe, you're trying to [drop] the bomb on me about another baby? Like, is that something you think — if we have another baby, you can control me more?"
Jovi's proposal comes after a season of stress between the couple, when Russia invaded Yara's native nation of Ukraine. Yara was excited to see her family in Europe and secure their safety because her green card had just been approved. Jovi, on the other hand, was not delighted with the prospect of Yara leaving the country with their daughter. He eventually joined them, but Yara's reconnection with her family members caused her to reevaluate her life in America. Yara looked for apartments in Europe as a possible option to visit more of her family, or at the very least stay with them until they could return to Ukraine. When Jovi said she couldn't leave America, she stayed firm and proceeded to discuss other possibilities to live closer to home.
