90 day Fiancé: The Other Way is giving more insight into Isabel Posada and Gabriel “Gabe” Paboga’s extraordinary relationship. A sneak peek into the upcoming episode, set to air on Sunday, showed Isabel recounting her first meeting with her now-lover, and how she truly felt the moment she realized he was transgender.
In a confessional, the reality star admitted she made the discovery by chance while going through his Instagram page less than 24 hours after they first met. Admittedly, she felt surprised at the discovery, as all his physical features portrayed him as “male,” leaving no room for doubt. She quipped in Spanish:
“I began to see photos of his surgery. I began seeing that he was a trans guy. That was a big surprise for me. I would have never noticed because Gabe just looks like a man.
Going further, Isabel marveled at how she did not notice any feminine traits during their meeting, from his body build to his voice. That left her with many questions. Finally, the 90 Day Fiancé star received the ultimate conviction when Gabe came out to her via a text message that he was transgender. While she had no issues with his identity, Isabel admittedly felt nervous upon receiving that confirmation. She divulged:
“I felt a lot of things. It was mostly my fear because never in my life did I think that I was going to like a trans guy.”
Knowing she already developed an instant connection with him, the star texted him back, showing her support for his choices. According to her, she knew within her she wanted to keep talking to Gabe.
Isabel’s Daughter Also Accepted Gabe After Transgender Reveal
Elsewhere in the 90 Day Fiancé episode, Isabel and her teenage daughter had their own heartfelt conversation about Gabe. The teenager revealed her reaction to learning her mom’s new boyfriend was transgender, saying:
“At first, I couldn’t believe it. But then after, I think I didn’t care.”
Aside from understanding her mom’s love life, the teenager also served as a rock of support and encouragement. She gave off that positive vibe during the 90 Day Fiancé episode, reassuring Isabel she was comfortable with Gabe being transgender as long as her mom was. She also added that she did not think “it’s a bad thing.”
Previously, Gabe opened up about his first meeting with Sara, saying they spent their first night getting to know each other. Their instant connection convinced Gabe he could trust her, hence, he did not hesitate to come out. While the couple has since accepted each other, letting love lead them, they still had one more hurdle to cross, as Gabe Paboga battles with telling Isabel’s parents he was a transgender man.
