90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days features Muslim couple Avery Mills and Omar Albakkour. Their casting sparked a lot of conversation among TLC fans. Some support the casting choice. Others are against it.
Along with this couple, the new season of the show features the first-ever gay couple as well. Despite the controversy, one person in Avery Mills’ corner is her grandmother, though.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – Avery Mills’ Grandmother Is Behind Her
One immediate question on a lot of fans’ minds is whether or not this couple is doing it purely for publicity. Their casting will likely generate a lot of buzz throughout their season. The season hasn’t even aired yet and there’s already spirited debate across various social media platforms.
As loving grandmothers often do, Avery Mills’ grandma took to social media to talk about her 90 Day Fiance granddaughter. Her grandma wrote: “she is 18 and she has money of her own.” Fielding potential backlash regarding the validity of their union, she added “she really cares about this fella.”
Further, she conveyed that her granddaughter is going to do what she wants to do. She said she will support her and her choices. One of those choices was to revert to Islam to be with Omar Albakkour. Many that change religion to be Muslim call it “revert” rather than “convert” as they view it as the “original religion”. This season is clearly already sparking controversy.

Grandma Too Chatty About 90 Day?
That said, with things like non-disclosure agreements in play, it’s probably best that Avery’s G-ma doesn’t reveal all before the season even airs. Omar Albakkour and Avery Mills’ casting definitely divides fans. Most viewers either love it or hate it with no in between. Certainly, it looks like Avery’s grandmother is definitely in their corner.
As a reality star, public scrutiny comes with the territory. At the moment both Avery and her 90 Day Fiance seem to be enjoying the calm before the storm. It’ll be interesting to see if they establish an open line of communication with fans and viewers leading up to their television debut.
What to Expect on New Season
90 Day Fiance Avery Mills is still stateside in Columbus, Ohio. Soon, she will make the journey to Lebanon to meet Omar for the first time. He is a student pursuing his Masters in periodontology. Beyond that, very little is known about the new couple.
Hopefully, more information becomes available as the premiere of their season draws near. In the meantime, perhaps viewers can hope for more accidental reveals from a supportive grandmother in advance of the new season of TLC’s 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.
