Kobe struggles to keep baby news from Emily’s family
90 day fiance Kobe feels everything the emotions on his wedding day to Emily in this week’s episode.
In an exclusive preview for Sunday’s episode, Kobe shares a last-minute bond with his soon-to-be father-in-law, David Bieberly, moments before he and Emily say “yes.” The gravity of the moment even brings both men to tears, especially because Kobe is hiding a big secret from his bride’s family.
“It kinda hit me this morning that Emily is getting married, so that’s a big deal, because I had a lot of serious doubts before Kobe came to America,” David shared in a private interview. “But he sent me a letter telling me how much he loved Emily and that he wanted my permission to marry her, and I wrote back saying it’s important for him now to take matters into his own hands. hand and take care of things.”
As they anticipate the ceremony, David gives Kobe a gift and references the letters they exchange. While Kobe thanks David profusely for the gift, the pair are doing well.
“It’s your job now. It’s for you, Emily and Koben,” David told Kobe. “You take charge, you have to steer them in the right direction.”
Kobe expresses his appreciation for the gift, and the in-laws’ tears mix with laughter as they embrace.
“Okay man,” David told Kobe, “I love you like a son, so it’s gonna be a good day.”
He said in a later interview, “I gave Kobe something personal that I wanted him to have that would remind him of what my letter told him. It really is a beautiful thing.”
David tells Kobe that the gift is supposed to be kept between the two of them.
As David looks relieved after the hug, Kobe continues to shed a few tears, prompting his new stepdad to comfort him.
“It’s not easy, you know? Kobe tells David.
In a confessional, Kobe reveals what partly brought him to tears: “I respect [Emily’s] father so much and it really hurts not to tell him about the pregnancy.”
He admits: “I feel like he trusts me so much. It’s like I’ve let him down, and I’m afraid I’ll ruin everything. But I can’t take it anymore.”
On the wedding day, in the bedroom with David, Kobe exclaims, “I can’t do this.”
In an episode last month, Kobe and Emily discovered they were expecting a second child – a particularly problematic development since Emily’s parents had agreed to let the couple and their son Koben stay at home on condition that the engaged couple not have no other children before. they found and moved to a new home.
During a conversation about how to break the news to her parents, Emily admitted: “It’s not the right time. We’re still figuring out our relationship, our parenting skills together, we’re at home. my parents and that’s the only thing they told us not to do was have another kid in their house.”
Kobe, who recently moved to America from Cameroon on a K-1 visa, was also worried about his reputation. “I’m so scared,” he said. “His family is just going to see a Cameroonian who is just interested in having children without even ensuring a bright future for the children and stuff like that.”
Despite his in-laws’ opinion, Emily hoped that Kobe would have a little more excitement about being a father again. After telling him it was “heavy” to process the news of a second child, she opened up about her feelings in a confessional.
“I thought he’d be a little more excited because he wants kids,” Emily said in this episode. “And I get it, it’s clearly not a good time, but I can tell by his tone of voice that he wasn’t happy. Honestly, it hurts me because it takes two to tango and obviously I didn’t make a baby on my own.”
