Shekinah Garner from 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way is pleased that her daughter, Sofie, appeared on the show regardless of her statements about Sarper Güven. The 41-year-old reality star was a surprising addition to the popular reality TV show. She debuted mid-season, hoping to settle down with her Turkish boyfriend, Sarper. However, things didn’t go as smoothly after her relatives and friends opposed her decision. Shekinah’s family believed it wasn’t worth it for her to move to Turkey because of a playboy like Sarper. They also felt that Shekinah needed to be in the United States to support her daughter, who was attending boarding school.
Despite everyone’s concern, Shekinah flew to Sarper and said goodbye to her family. However, it wasn’t before she had a heartfelt conversation with her daughter, who had some wise words for her. The teenage girl said the things she heard about Sarper were weird. Sofie told her mother that the fact that Sarper claimed himself to be the alpha was disgusting. The 16-year-old supporting cast member told her mother not to overlook the red flags.
Shekinah Is Proud Of Sofie
While Sofie didn’t say the best things for Sarper, Shekinah feels proud of her for being her own woman. Recently, the single mom posted a photo of herself and her daughter from the car and discussed her feelings. She said, “Proud of my girl Sofie for being so brave and speaking such words of wisdom on last nights episode.” Shekinah shared that watching her daughter be so mature made her tear up. She talked about how her interaction with her daughter on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way was a special moment that made her very emotional.
How Did Shekinah Choose To Raise Her Daughter
Shekinah has also discussed how she raised her daughter as the only parent since Sofie’s dad, Berto, lived in Costa Rica. The Los Angeles native claims she and Sofie have “been through so much over the years,” which has helped them form a special bond. Shekinah feels that she raised her daughter right and instilled great values. In her Instagram post, the new reality TV star told the fans that she had educated Sofie not to judge others, to be more kind and compassionate, and to love wholeheartedly. The new 90 Day Fiancé franchise star has raised her child to forge her path no matter the consequences.
Shekinah’s Living Situation With Daughter Amid Turkey Move
While replying to a fan, Shekinah clarified her living situation with Sofie. She revealed that she sees her daughter the “exact same amount” living in Turkey as she does in the United States. Sofie is 16 and goes to a boarding school. Shekinah believes she has raised her daughter well, and they don’t have a problem spending time apart. It is great that the American reality star is so confident in her daughter. The 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way cast member is right to shut down critics for making baseless assumptions, as most people don’t know what she and Sofie have been through.
