90 Day Fiance’s Larissa Dos Santos Lima Wants a ‘Traditional American Wedding’ With Boyfriend Eric Nichols
Wedding bells may be ringing sooner rather than later for Larissa Dos Santos Lima! The 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? star exclusively tells Life & Style she hopes to have a “traditional American wedding” and marry her boyfriend, Eric Nichols, before starting a family.
“Yeah, we talk about this,” Larissa, 34, reveals. “He says, ‘Oh I want to have kids with you,’ this and that. He talked already to my family. He is learning Portuguese. We have plans to marry one day but not now. Now we want to make money together, we want to buy a house, we want to achieve a lot of goals.”
Larissa is already a mom to son Arry and daughter Luana from previous relationships, who are both living in her native country of Brazil. She says she’s open to having more children with Eric, 28. “In the future, maybe but not now!” she adds with a laugh. “Not now, two years!”
The Brazilian beauty hopes to tie the first before she welcomes baby No. 3, and she teases a wedding could be possible once the coronavirus pandemic ends — and of course, cameras will be rolling. “Yes. [A] TLC Wedding special, that’s what we need! But can you imagine if I married again? It would be like, ‘My God!” she gushes, adding that she feels she’s ready to walk down the aisle again. “But this time I want a beautiful wedding, I want the dress that I deserve. I want the bridesmaids.”
Larissa was first introduced to fans on season 6 of TLC’s hit reality TV franchise, 90 Day Fiancé. The brunette bombshell documented her love story with ex-husband Colt Johnson. She relocated from Brazil to Las Vegas to start a life with the 35-year-old computer programmer, but their marriage didn’t last. The former couple’s divorce was finalized in April 2019.
When asked about what advice she would give to herself before getting married again, Larissa hinted at her tension with Colt’s mother, Debbie Johnson, which played out on the show. “Do not argue with your husband’s mother. All the mothers, no matter what they do, don’t matter their story, don’t matter if they argue with their son, they are queens,” she says. “Don’t matter, they are true queens so bow down to them and pray you get a good mother-in-law.”
Larissa moved on just one month after Colt filed for divorce. After meeting Eric on Tinder, she went Instagram official with him in February 2019. They made their red carpet debut as a couple the following month at Larissa’s divorce party. The couple split that September after seven months together, but they reconciled in March. The real estate agent was the one who cared for Larissa during her plastic surgery recovery in February and August.
“I got a surprise with him, he’s 28 years old, I’m 34 and it seems like he’s older than me, has more experience than I. So, I felt very cared for,” Larissa gushed about her man. “My family is very happy, they told Eric they are very happy and that he did a great job. I felt like he is kind of [a] husband for me because he’s been doing things for me like we are married. He really took care, he put the ice on my face. The doctors said, ‘Oh my gosh, he did a great job. I never saw a patient so take care of like he did with you.'”
The social media influencer underwent five cosmetic surgery procedures within six months: a nose job and a boob job during her first surgery, and liposuction, a tummy tuck and a fat transfer during the second. All of her work was done by Dr. Lane Smith at Smith Plastic Surgery.
Larissa is so onboard with cosmetic surgery that she would approve of her children going under the knife in the future if that’s something they wanted to do. “I would support it 100 percent. I do not want to be an influencer where I am wearing so much makeup and then on top of it all I have Photoshop and filters and taking the right pose,” Larissa explains. “I want to show people the truth, to be honest and say, ‘Hey, I do not lie to you, I did some procedures.’ I would say to my daughter, ‘Go. I’m with you, you can do it. I can support you, I’ve been through that and have no shame.'”
90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? on TLC airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.
