Chantel and Pedro Jimeno have been married for five years now, but viewers see many signs why The Family Chantel couple should hold off on having kids for the time being. Pedro and Chantel have aired their popular relationship for many years in the extended 90 Day Fiancé franchise, though it has unfortunately been worsening rather than maturing. Though Chantel is eager to have a baby, many The Family Chantel fans are urging her to think twice before pushing the baby agenda with Pedro.
Chantel and Pedro fell in love quickly and managed to keep their international flame alive through both long-distance dating and family issues on both sides. However, Pedro’s heartbreaking revelations about his family have apparently soured his attitude towards his wife. Pedro learned that the women in his family had affairs to father their children during the show’s third season. A seemingly bitter Pedro has since taken his frustration out on his wife. Pedro is now far colder and crueler to Chantel than he ever was in the past, a sudden behavior change that has alarmed viewers.
The topic of babies has been discussed in The Family Chantel season 4. Chantel, who was 30 at the time of filming, expressed her desire to have kids. Pedro, who was then 29, voiced that he wanted to wait five years or so to start the baby talk. The news left Chantel shocked, as the registered nurse doesn’t want to have a high-risk pregnancy after age 35. The drastically different views that Pedro and Chantel shared showed just how incompatible their future goals have become. Chantel made it clear that she wanted to have a baby in her early 30s, while Pedro was very much opposed to the idea. This has left fans with the opinion that Chantel and Pedro are no longer compatible.
Furthermore, viewers believe that Chantel and Pedro aren’t ready for a baby due to their severe communication breakdown. Chantel admitted on camera that she was happy her family grilled Pedro about babies since that is the only way she can know what he is thinking. This kind of mindset is not normal or healthy for a married couple. It is clear that Chantel and Pedro have a newfound separation that is making things between them tense and uncertain. Many viewers believe that this is clearly not the right environment to bring children into. Some have suggested that Chantel and Pedro turn to couple’s therapy before considering a child.
Overall, Chantel and Pedro appear to be in a terrible place during The Family Chantel season 4. However, viewers are torn as to whether or not they are faking their issues. Pedro already pretended not to know about his half-siblings during season 3. Therefore, he wouldn’t be below being fake cruel to his wife for views. However, other fans think that since Pedro now has independence in the United States that he might be pulling away from Chantel. New episodes of The Family Chantel season 4 will reveal whether or not the couple is seriously contemplating divorce.
