90 Day Fiancé fans are worried about Tiffany Franco’s son, Daniel, who is not going on the planned trip to South Africa to see Ronald Smith.
In a recent 90 Day: The Single Life episode, Tiffany Franco planned a trip to South Africa to visit her husband, Ronald Smith, but 90 Day Fiancé fans are worried about her son, Daniel, who is staying behind. Tiffany and Ronald first met in South Africa and got married in October 2018. The stress of living in two different countries, and Ronald’s gambling addiction, weighed on the couple during their relationship. While the couple tried to make their marriage work for their daughter, Carly, they split at the end of 2021. However, some fans speculate the relationship might not be over.
On 90 Day: The Single Life season 3, Tiffany is working towards finding love again; however, it’s been difficult because her former marriage has weighed her down. During the season, Ronald appears through video calls to give him time to interact with the children. However, since it has been over a year since he has seen them, he invited Tiffany to visit South Africa. Tiffany agreed to make the trip but decided to leave Daniel behind for school, and she didn’t want to confuse him about their relationship. Reddit user jennvall began a thread where fans discussed concern for Daniel staying home.
Ronald Is Still A Father Figure To Tiffany’s Son Daniel
Although Daniel is not his biological son, Ronald played a fatherly role in Daniel’s life when he married Tiffany. Furthermore, 90 Day: The Single Life shows that Ronald still cares for Daniel since he asked Tiffany for both kids to visit him in South Africa. Ronald wanted to see the kids but also wanted Tiffany to consider her and Ronald’s relationship again. Some fans believe Daniel was upset because he wanted to go on the trip. One Reddit user commented, “I felt bad that she left him when he wanted to go too. Regardless of her relationship with Ronald, Daniel considered him Dad.“
Since Ronald was a father figure to him in the past, it is natural that Daniel would also want to go on the trip. Still, other fans believe Daniel was upset because he did not want his mother to get back together with Ronald. Another Reddit user said, “Daniel looks so sad this season, the emotional toil of his mom’s breakup is clearly causing him pain. You can tell he doesn’t want her dating.” Tiffany praised Daniel for his emotional intelligence when they discussed her getting back into dating. However, some fans argue that Tiffany “parentified” Daniel when he had to witness her being hurt emotionally by Ronald.
90 Day Fiancé fans worry the trip to South Africa could complicate Tiffany and Ronald’s relationship since he wants to talk to her about it. Even though Tiffany has started to date other people, she knows she will always love Ronald. In addition, he will always be in her life since they have a daughter together. While Tiffany deserves love and happiness, dating is difficult when navigating around her children, who are inevitably part of the equation. Still, Daniel is getting older, which means he is becoming more aware of Tiffany’s dating life, including the good and the bad.
