The Other Way favorites Kenny and Armando were apart on 90 Day Diaries because Kenny was visiting his family in Florida and was going to be there for the birth of his second grandchild.

Kenny showed baby Julian to Armando after he was born, and the two continued their ongoing discussion of possibly having a child together.

58-year-old Kenny expressed hesitation about embarking on a parenting journey again but realized that Armando wanted to join their two families and have a piece of Kenny left after he was gone.

Jess Caroline was visiting her home country of Brazil without her husband, Bryan. She spent time with her girlfriend on the beach and broke some sensitive news to her.

Jess revealed that she saw her doctor after bleeding nonstop for three months, and they said that her ovaries and uterus were low and said she should have them removed.

Jess’s friend suggested that she get a second opinion which she did. The doctor in Brazil gave her medicine for an infection they detected and recommended that she get an IUD put in.

Chuck detailed his divorce from his wife of 20 years, with whom he had seven children. He also spoke about his battle with cancer and that he had to have his bladder removed, which resulted in him wearing an ostomy bag for the rest of his life. He talked about how self-conscious the bad made him.

Chuck spoke about wanting to get back into dating and live life the way he wanted, so he met up with his daughter Jenn who helped him with his wardrobe. He met with Jenn’s relationship coach friend, who gave Chuck the advice that he needed to love himself before he started dating.
