90 Day Fiancé – The Real Reason Armando Can’t Move To The U.S. With Kenny



  • Armando and Kenny have decided to settle down in Mexico City, with Armando being pleasantly surprised by feeling safe in the city.
  • Kenny has felt homesick while living in Mexico, but Armando has an important reason for wanting to stay – his daughter Hannah and her close relationship with her grandparents.
  • While it’s not confirmed if they’ve moved yet, hints suggest that Armando and Kenny have made Mexico City their new home, attending concerts and celebrating birthdays in the city.



90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way fans have often wondered why Armando Rubio hasn’t moved to America with his husband, Kenneth “Kenny” Niedermeier. Kenny, a 60-year-old from St. Petersburg, Florida, met Armando, 34, from San Felipe in a support group for gay fathers. Kenny had welcomed a set of triplet girls and one son without ever getting married when his friend agreed to carry his children. Armando was married once before and welcomed a beautiful daughter named Hannah Rubio. Unfortunately, Armando’s wife and an unborn baby died when Armando was going through divorce.

Kenny also lost a set of twins at four months due to a miscarriage. The trauma brought Armando and Kenny closer. The reality TV show couple met seven years ago and became best friends in the process. They dated long-distance for three and a half years before Kenny moved to Mexico for good. Armando had a tough time coming out to his family, but eventually, Kenny and Armando got married on May 22, 2021, in Baja California. They have since faced conflict in their marriage over having kids, as Kenny feels he’s growing older and prefers adopting an older kid as opposed to surrogacy.

Armando Has Agreed To Move To Mexico City With Kenny

Armando & Kenny 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way

Armando and Kenny moved out of their Mexico City apartment after six weeks of living there in episode 12. They were now heading back to La Misión. Armando was surprised at how quickly the last few weeks had passed. Time flew, and they had a lot of fun. When they were coming to Mexico City, Armando had the idea the city was a dangerous place to live “all around.” He was pleasantly surprised to feel safe in the areas they visited. Armando admitted he was “on board” with settling down in Mexico City. Armando now wanted to give stepping out of his “closed little world” a chance.

Why Armando Can’t Move To The U.S. Instead?

Armando confessed that never in his life he would have dreamed of living in Mexico City. “I never thought I’d be living in Mexico and here I am,” Kenny reminded Armando. The couple still gets comments on their Instagram posts, such as a fan asking Kenny, “Kenneth… have you guys considered having a second home near your kids in the States?” Kenny has felt homesick while living in Mexico. Armando, however, has an important reason why he wants to continue living there. “I’m going to be honest with you, I do struggle because I do miss it there a lot. I am really homesick,” Kenny told Armando.

Kenny was feeling guilty after finding out he wasn’t with his daughter Cassidy for her first pregnancy. Armando explained, “When Kenny and I started talking about living together, we decided to live here in Mexico.” Armando decided to continue staying in Mexico because of Hannah. “She has my parents. She has her mother’s parents that she needs to visit and see often because of her young age,” he added. Armando admitted he knew how difficult it was for Kenny to leave his whole life behind. Armando himself felt guilty about how the homesickness was weighing Kenny down.

Where Are Armando & Kenny Staying In 2023?

Still, Kenny has now found happiness in shifting to Mexico City. Kenny and Armando were going to wait for Hannah’s school year to end so they could pack everything and move. While Armando and Kenny aren’t revealing if they’ve moved to Mexico City yet, the 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 5 couple has shared hints that suggest they’ve made the city their new home. In June 2023, Armando and Kenny attended a Gloria Trevi concert at Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City, and Armando celebrated his birthday on August 28, 2023, at a Mexico City restaurant called Porter.

90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EDT on TLC.
