90 Day Fiance star Jonathan Rivera, 32, started dating Fernanda Flores when she was possibly only 17, some media outlets report.

The couple are by far the farthest apart in age.
TLC’s 90 Day Fiance Introduces Jonathan Rivera & Fernanda Flores
There are about 12 years between Jonathan and Fernanda. According to the latest reports, the 90 Day Fiance couple started dating two years ago. That may have been when 19-year-old Fernanda was only 17.
In Touch Magazine calls this a “bit alarming” when hearing about Jonathan’s romance with a girl that was possibly 17. Jonathan met Fernando during a vacation in Mexico. He said he found himself drawn to Fernanda immediately.
Fernanda Flores Gets the K1 Visa
After being together for two years, Jonathan and Fernanda now plan to marry. As the new 90 Day Fiance season begins, Fernanda lands in the US with her visa in hand. The 90-day fiancé visa is reflected in the title of the show.
Fernanda is still a teenager at 19-years-old but in the US she is legally an adult. While she is no longer 17, fans aren’t too thrilled about a 30-year-old man dating a girl that may have been 17-years old.
90 Day Fiance – Jonathan Rivera Shares First Meeting
Jonathan Rivera talked about his first time meeting Fernanda. He said:
“When she walks into the room, people stop and look — that’s exactly what she did to me when I met her,” Jonathan said. “I’m at the club and I see this girl walk in with a long black dress. I finally made my way to the dance floor. I swear, it’s like everything stopped. We got off the dance floor after about an hour and a half and spent the rest of the evening talking. She was shocked that I was able to speak Spanish — I looked like a ‘gringo.’”
Jonathan changed his vacation plans after meeting Fernanda. He added on a few extra days so he could stay in Mexico longer with his new love interest. This resulted in a relationship that lasted two years so far.
Jonathan also shares with the 90 Day Fiance fans how he feels today about Fernanda. Jonathan said: “It turned out, no one brings the best out of me like Fernanda does.” The two dated only three months before he proposed to Fernanda and she accepted.
