90 Day Fiancé: star Ed Brown, better known as “Big Ed” is restoring his relationship with his daughter, Tiffany. The father-daughter duo hit a rough spot after she was worried he would end up in the TLC reality series.
Ed told US Weekly, “I got my daughter back. It would have been horrible [if I lost her]. But absolutely, 100% no regrets.”
Ed and Tiffany’s relationship first encountered problems when he left for the Philippines without warning. Of course he went to meet Rosemarie “Rose” Vega in person for the first time.
And then he shared the couple’s love story. He said, “I found Rose on social media. We fell in love. We did FaceTiming about three or four times a day for about three months. I bought a ticket [to see her] and posted it online, and everyone said, “Oh, my God, you’re doing 90 Day Fiancé”. I’ve never heard of the show. Well, my daughter and my ex-wife were big fans, so… because when you expose your life and everything personal about you, you basically open yourself up to ridicule.”
Before Ed got on the plane, he kept calling his daughter, but she didn’t answer. I mean, who can blame her, I would have had the same feelings as Tiffany watching my father run around the world to meet someone for the first time. It’s a huge risk in itself, let alone the whole experience on a reality TV show.
90 Day Fiance: Big Ed Didn’t Give Up On Tiffany
Because Tiffany ignored his calls, Ed made a video message for her instead. Ed shared what his video message meant: “I actually said, ‘Look, if I never see you again, I love you. That was heavy. It hurts when you’re happy and hurt people in your life who love you.”
The 90-day Fiancé star went on to say that he couldn’t be happy if he and Tiffany weren’t both happy in their relationship. Okay, okay, I’m a little choked up. That was pretty sweet of him.
Ed remembered when Tiffany hung up and didn’t answer his calls. He described it as the worst thing he’d ever experienced. He then admitted to US Weekly that watching the scene of himself at the airport brought him to tears.
Eventually, Ed said, “I love my daughter. She is – and I say this with love and respect – a pain in the ass, just like her father. Her mother tells her every day, “You’re just like your father,” and so are we. We’re very passionate about who we are… She never gives up. She’s a fighter. In the end, it looks like everything’s going to be okay with Big Ed. He fell in love, he got the girl, and he got his daughter back.
