90 Day Fiance: Jovi Dufren Jokes About Being Adopted
Looks like Jovi Dufren will be getting an earful from mom Gwen Eymard after he pulled a joke on his fans. The 90 Day Fiance celeb recently had a Q&A session on Instagram.
Jovi was asked by a curious fan why his last name is Dufren and not Eymard, which is Gwen and Monty's surname. But it seems Yara Zaya's husband doesn't take the question seriously.
In response, the 90 Day Fiance star said his last name is different from his parents because he's "adopted." Many were shocked to see Jovi's response, especially since he's faced similar theories in the past.
Apparently, some fans think Jovi Dufren doesn't resemble his mom or dad. Others also noted that Gwen and Monty celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, which doesn't add up to Jovi's age.
