90 Day Fiance: What We Know About Geoffrey Paschel's Kids

The following article includes discussions of domestic abuse.

"90 Day Fiance" alumnus Geoffrey Paschel has quite the history, not all of which was shown on Season 4 of "90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days," when Paschel traveled to Russia to meet partner Varya Malina. Between allegations of domestic violence from past partners and previous prison time served for drug charges before his October 2021 conviction on multiple charges, including domestic violence, there are many elements of Paschel's life that have come to the public's attention as a result of his appearance on reality television.

In addition to his troubles with the law, Paschel is a father. In Touch Weekly reports that Paschel mentioned four children during his time on "90 Day Fiance." This includes his infant son, Kazhem, who had multiple medical conditions and died in 2018, as Paschel clarified on his YouTube channel.

Despite Paschel's decision to open up about the death of one of his children, Showbiz CheatSheet reports that both an ex-girlfriend of Paschel's and the mother-in-law of one of his sons have claimed that Paschel has more children than the four whom he has acknowledged to the public.

Geoffrey Paschel may have 12 children

While participating in a tell-all YouTube livestream video hosted by blogger YB Entertainment, Geoffrey Paschel's ex-girlfriend Shelby Bart stated on camera that she was aware that Paschel had fathered more than eight children. Another woman, who joined the livestream via its chat feature, identified herself as the mother-in-law of one of Paschel's sons and gave more information about how many children Paschel has, leading both women to confirm that Paschel has 12 children (via Showbiz CheatSheet).

It is not publicly known who these additional eight children are or how old they are, nor is it known why Paschel has chosen not to mention them on television or on social media. Publicly, Paschel has acknowledged only four sons: Paxton, Dakota, Cayvan, and Kazhem (via In Touch Weekly). One of his sons, Dakota, has previously solicited donations from Instagram users on his father's behalf, according to a separate article from In Touch Weekly.

He remains in a relationship with Varya Malina

Geoffrey Paschel remains in a relationship with Russian national Varya Malina, who appeared with him on "90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days." The two became engaged before the end of their run on the television series, but there has been heavy fan speculation that the couple has since wed. This is partly due to Malina's posts on her verified Instagram account, including posts that show her continuing to reside in the United States despite Paschel's incarceration. (Malina, meanwhile, has created Instagram Reels that appear to poke fun at the marriage rumors.)

Additional reports suggest that Paschel and Malina remain engaged but not yet married to one another. Screen Rant writes that Paschel is legally married to his estranged wife, Brittany Paschel, who is also the mother of his late son, Kazhem. If this is indeed the case, Malina has not clarified to fans on what basis she is living in the United States or what her marriage plans are for the future.
