90 Day Fiance couple Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi have gotten married overseas!
Angela and Michael got married in Nigeria on January 27, according to wedding photos that have leaked online.
“Guess who’s finally off the market! Whoop whoop,” the @communiqueglobal Instagram account captioned a pair of photos showing the 90 Day Fiance couple exchanging vows and then posing for a wedding photo.
“As the invitation said, January 27 in Nigeria!,” added @fraudedbytlc, a 90 Day Fiance Instagram fan account which reposted the photos.
A pair of crew members are visible holding boom microphones over Angela and Michael as they exchanged vows, suggesting the ceremony was filmed for future broadcast on 90 Day Fiance or one of its spinoffs.
In addition, a large banner for the Federal Marriage Registry of Nigeria’s Ministry of Interior can be seen in the background of the photo, which shows Angela and Michael standing and facing each other while an apparent government official sitting in front of the banner presides over the ceremony.
Two additional people — a blonde woman wearing Western-style clothing and a man dressed in traditional Nigerian garb — are also visible sitting alongside Angela and Michael respectively.
Angela wore a flowing white wedding dress for the ceremony, while Michael wore a purple suit.
Angela had returned to Nigeria earlier this month
Claims that Angela and Michael had decided to attempt to resolve Michael’s K-1 visa problems by getting married in Nigeria on January 27 had surfaced online last week after Angela was spotted at a Nigerian airport with a camera crew earlier this month.
“A pastor in my fb uploaded this picture yesterday when he arrived from Canada to Nigeria … Look who is in the back lol,” a poster captioned a photo posted to a 90 Day Fiance Facebook group in January 19.
The photo unintentionally captured Angela and three crew members filming behind the pastor and showed Angela talking to the camera as two crew members filmed the 90 Day Fiance star with a camera and a microphone pole as a producer stood beside the cameraman.
The Southern blonde looked as passionate as ever in the photo, pointing toward the camera with her arm raised into the air.
Angela and Michael wedding claims had surfaced shortly afterward
However, whether there was a specific purpose for Angela’s new trip to Nigeria remained unclear until a couple of days later when the @hundred_percent_true_shit Instagram account claimed Angela had returned to Nigeria to wed and posted a photo of an alleged copy of the couple’s wedding invitation.
“Well, it looks like a wedding will happen after all,” the Instagram account captioned the photo. “Nobody not even the US Government tells Angie Baby she can’t have her Michael.”
While the account redacted the wedding’s location from the alleged invitation, the wedding’s date was not censored and stated the ceremony would occur January 27.
Shortly afterward, @fraudedbytlc posted that it had also confirmed the wedding news.
“@hundred_percent_true_shit has the breaking news. I have received confirmation that Angela is in Nigeria to get married there!,” the account wrote.
“No clue on the legitimacy of this being their actual invitation BUT my sources say the wedding in Nigeria is going to happen and will be filmed. More news coming as we get it.”
Given only a couple of episodes remain in the currently-airing seventh season of 90 Day Fiance that Angela and Michael have been appearing on, it remains unclear when the wedding footage will air and could indicate the couple will be returning for another season of 90 Day Fiance or one of its spinoffs like 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days or 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.
The fourth season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days — which Angela and Michael have also previously appeared on — is set to premiere on February 23 on TLC after Season 7 of 90 Day Fiance wraps.
Last month, TLC announced 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days’ upcoming season will feature seven couples, including returning cast members Darcey Silva and Tom Brooks.
Angela and Michael were not part of that Before the 90 Days Season 4 cast announcement, however it’s possible TLC may be waiting to announce their participation at a later date — which would be a repeated course of action for the network.
When TLC announced the cast of 90 Day Fiance’s seventh season in October, the network didn’t reveal Angela and Michael would be cast members until after Season 3 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days — which the couple had been appearing on — aired its finale a couple of weeks later.
Angela and Michael, however, were not featured on 90 Day Fiance’s seventh season until December, over a month into the season’s broadcast run.
Angela hadn’t wanted to get married overseas
Since then, 90 Day Fiance’s seventh season has shown Angela and Michael trying to get Michael’s K-1 visa approved so he could move to the United States and they could get married in front of Angela’s family in America.
However, Michael’s K-1 visa was denied following his visa interview, so Angela then flew to Nigeria to hopefully get to the bottom of things and receive some answers as to what went wrong.
One of the options available to the couple had been to tie the knot in Nigeria and then apply for a K-3 spousal visa, but Angela had been against the idea of having her wedding in a foreign country.
However, 90 Day Fiance’s most recent Season 7 episode showed Angela reassessing the possibility after Michael’s family pressed Angela to just marry Michael in Nigeria.
“I came on this trip thinking, ‘I am not getting married here in Nigeria,’ but I’m going to give it a chance and be open-minded and discuss the spousal visa,” she said in an interview afterwards.
Angela and Michael, who met on Facebook, got their start on reality TV by starring on Season 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, followed by Season 3 of the TLC spinoff.
