When dedication meets preparation! After going through a tough breakup, 90 Day Fiancé star Molly Hopkins was determined to become the best version of herself. The TLC alum has documented her weight loss journey online and she also shared some diet tips with her followers since beginning her journey in 2017. By sticking to a regimen, Molly managed to drop an impressive 40 pounds post-split and revealed it was due to her diet and exercise changes.
The Georgia native decided to focus on herself after her nasty split from ex-husband, Luis Mendez. The couple were first introduced to fans on season 5 of the hit reality TV series. Their love story began when Molly met Luis while she was vacationing in his native country of the Dominican Republic. Luis was a bartender at the Hard Rock hotel bar, where Molly was staying during her visit, and they quickly fell in love despite their 15-year age gap.
After months of dating long-distance, Luis popped the question to Molly and they started their K-1 visa journey. The K-1 visa allows the foreign fiancé or fiancée of an American citizen to enter the United States under the condition that the couple gets married within 90 days of the foreigner’s arrival.
But Molly and Luis kept a major secret from her friends, family and even the production crew — they were already married well before the 90 days deadline. They legally wed shortly after Luis arrived in the United States, but they didn’t get to walk down the aisle in a traditional wedding ceremony because they split by the end of their season.
Their first breakup was brief and after Luis spent some time with her brother in New Jersey, he returned to Georgia to work out his marriage with Molly. They attempted to document their reconciliation during season 3 of the spinoff 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? but instead, they documented their second and final breakup.

In January 2018, Molly filed for divorce from Luis after only six months of marriage and it was finalized that May. Just four months later, Luis remarried and he confirmed his second marriage in an exclusive statement to In Touch at the time. As for Molly, she confirmed she is dating again but has not had a serious relationship since her divorce.
