In the caption, Patrick celebrated his physical feat by remarking, “Feels good to finally get back under the bar again after battling with some injuries. I am finally feeling back to my normal self.” He also shouted out a company whose Instagram bio says they work in “Performance. Longevity.” and “Optimization.”

Patrick Mendes did not think he could get Thais Ramone pregnant

In Season 9 of 90 Day Fiance, Patrick married his Brazilian now-wife Thais Ramone.

At the Tell All, Patrick and Thais announced that they were expecting their first child together. They went on to detail that Patrick didn’t think he had viable sperm due to his past steroid use, so their pregnancy was a happy surprise to them.

Now that they and their 90 Day fans can get excited about the news, Thais has been posting up a storm of happy and glowing pregnancy pictures in different cute outfits.

Patrick and Thais celebrated their dog Theodore’s first birthday

When Thais first arrived in America, Patrick surprised her with a Pomeranian puppy that she named Theodore, or Teodoro. Theodore made many appearances throughout the season.

and a few months ago I was a star at the @90dayfiance where I’m friends of everyone 💕.”
