90 Day Fiancé star Paola Mayfield and her Instagram account are often scanned by critics for anything nearly controversial. At times it may involve the Paola objectionable outfits, or sometimes it’s her comments on anti-vaxxers. However, more often than not, most of the 90 Day Fiancé season 1 celeb’s comments are about her racy pictures and parenting style. And once again, Paola has come under the radar of TLC fans for posting a “disturbing” IG story of herself in a bikini posing with her son, which they’re calling a “thirst trap.”
Just like most of the reality show’s season 1 couples, Russ and Paola are still going strong. Since their first appearance on 90 Day Fiancé in 2014 to returning to TV with 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Russ and Paola have taken viewers on a journey of their TLC romance. And although their stint ended in 2019, the couple does continue to spark interest all the time. Maybe that’s why “the OGs” as Paola calls her and Russ, are slated to make a comeback soon. But while the pair’s Pillow Talk appearance wasn’t quite well received, it’s also Paola’s unapologetically sexual behavior that tends to rile up some fans. A few days ago it was the model’s upside-down style of wearing a bikini that 90 Day Fiancé fans shamed her for, and now, it’s IG videos of her playing with baby Axel that are giving them second-hand embarrassment.
As reported by Cheat Sheet, certain 90 Day Fiancé viewers have taken objection to the way Paola posts photos with her son. A screenshot shared by a Reddit fan off Paola’s Instagram shows the reality TV star laying down in a blue bikini with the baby boy in the background. “Maybe I’m old-fashioned but is this a normal photo to post of you playing with your kid?” says the person posting. The thread then follows with a series of comments bashing Paola for her parenting techniques, such as, “I have nothing against thirst trap photos. I take my fair share of sexy pictures. But I have never, ever done so in front of my kid.”
“This is creepy,” reads a disgruntled fan’s comment and then there’s someone who’s mentioned the 90 Day Fiancé star’s “Save our children,” tattoo asked how Paola could promote “sexualized energy” with her toddler in the picture. A few comments also discuss how Russ’ conservative family would be feeling after seeing Paola’s social media content.
It’s known to 90 Day Fiancé viewers that the outspoken Colombian native and Russ didn’t really have an easy journey to parenthood. A miscarriage left the couple devastated shortly after they’d announced it on season 3 of Happily Ever After? but they did welcome baby Axel in January 2019. But, while some people really express disdain over the pair, and especially Paola, they remain one of the most drama-free couples of 90 Day Fiancé. However, given that signing up for multiple seasons of a reality TV show does involve getting people to judge your every move, it looks like Paola and her posts are an easy target for critics to keep calling out.
