Where Do ’90 Day Fiance’ Stars Daniele and Yohan Live? Find Out If They’re in U.S. or Dominican Republic
Not on the same page? 90 Day Fiancé stars Daniele Gates and Yohan Geronimo have made their return to the franchise on season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. Fans were first introduced to the couple on season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: Love in Paradise, which documented their beachside wedding ceremony. However, it seems like it's not all wedded bliss for Daniele and Yohan because they clash over two important issues -- money and where they will choose to live: either in Daniele's native New York City or Yohan's native Dominican Republic. Keep scrolling below to find out if Daniele and Yohan decided to live in the United States or in the Caribbean!
Where Do '90 Day Fiance' Stars Yohan and Daniele Want to Live?
On season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: Love in Paradise, which debuted in December 2022, Daniele and Yohan disagreed about where they wanted to start their lives out as a married couple. After meeting Yohan's family, who live very modestly in the Dominican Republic countryside, Daniele asked them what their expectations were and if they preferred if Yohan and Daniele lived in the D.R. or in the United States.
"Living there is fine," Yohan's mother told Daniele. "His aunt said it would be good for him to stay there and when he comes back, that he will bring her some shoes."
Yohan told Daniele that he would like to set up home bases in both the D.R. and the U.S. and split their time between the two countries. "Because what I have in my mind is to go work with you there," he said. "My mind is set that I'll do it to help my family."
Daniele told Yohan that the only problem with that plan is that she did not have enough money to have two houses in two different countries. Yohan then asked her where she preferred to live and she responded, "Here."
She explained to Yohan's family that New York City is a fast-paced lifestyle and she would prefer to live in the D.R. because it would be a slower and easier lifestyle for her, with the added benefit of warmer weather. She also said that New York City is too expensive, revealing that she paid $4,000 a month for her apartment. Yohan's aunt explained that with the currency exchange, people who work in New York City could make the same amount of money in two hours of work that people in the Dominican Republic would make in two weeks of work.
"I definitely worry that Yohan could be with me for the wrong reasons especially when I hear how much pressure Yohan's family is putting on him to move to the United States because they know that that's how he's going to be able to help them the most."
Fans watched the couple continue to face conflict over their living arrangements during the January 29 premiere of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. In the episode, Daniele shocked Yohan by insisting she never wants to move back to New York City.
"In reality, she doesn't understand what it is to live here in the Dominican Republic," he said in a confessional, adding that he only earns enough money to make ends meet. "In my country, you work for years and years and years, you don't have anything."
After Yohan expressed his desire to move to the United States, Daniele argued that he wouldn't get a high-paying job because he doesn’t speak English.
"It's one of my dreams, and Daniele is coming and she is destroying my dream," he said in a confessional. "Because that's not what we talked about and agreed on."
How Do Daniele’s Friends Feel About Her Moving From New York City to the Dominican Republic?
Also during the January 29 episode, Daniele’s friends admitted that they had concerns about her moving to the D.R.
"I am confident that I'm making the right decision," Daniele told cameras. "All of the concerns that my friends are raising are in the what ifs category and I don't really worry about the what ifs. I just want to enjoy my life with the love of my life at a slower pace near the ocean."
While talking to her friends about the move, she acknowledged that Yohan thought the plan was for him to get his visa so they could live in the United States. However, she revealed she hadn't even applied for his visa.
"My plan is just to keep it moving unless he fights. I mean, if I don't apply for a visa, he can't go anywhere," the reality star said. "So, I could just hold on to his marriage certificate and never apply for a visa."
In March 2023, Daniele defended living on the Caribbean island, explaining that she felt “safe” living there.
“I’m a 43-year-old white woman. There is an entire police department that exists in this country that is paid by Dominican dollars to make sure that I am safe,” she explained via a Q&A with fans. “I do not have the same experience of everyone else here, my husband included. He is not necessarily as safe as I am.”
Did '90 Day Fiance' Star Daniele Move to the Dominican Republic With Yohan?
Despite not seeing eye to eye at first, Daniele and Yohan were able to come to an agreement after their wedding. It seems they agreed to live in the Dominican Republic, because Daniele revealed that she was leaving New York City in June 2022.
"I’m terrible at goodbyes, especially when I know they’re forever…" she captioned an Instagram Reel featuring clips and photos of her visiting her favorite New York City landmarks at the time.
Where Do '90 Day Fiance' Stars Daniele and Yohan Live Now?
Daniele took to Instagram on March 22, 2023, to confirm she and Yohan are still living in the Dominican Republic by gushing over her lifestyle on the Caribbean island.
“We really do live in paradise,” Danielle captioned an Instagram Reel of her and Yohan exploring Punta Cana. “But that doesn’t mean we don’t need to escape real life — none of this is easy.”
Prior to the Punta Cana trip, that same month, Daniele returned from a trip to her native of New York City.
“Te amo pero termina NYC. I miss my husband and my dog,” she wrote on March 14. “It’s cold but it feels good in the morning. I love the yoga and the spin and the class. I love how much my friends love and support me but also specifically how they support my love of good food. See you soon.”
