90 Day Fiance fans should remember Chris Thieneman and his wife Nikki Cooper. They’re the wealthy Louisville couple that bankrolled David Toborowsky as he pursued Annie Suwan in Thailand. In fact, it’s Chris that sponsored Annie to come to American since her fiance (now husband) David could not afford it. Now that they’ve cut the purse strings tethering them to David, generous Chris and Nikki are putting their hard-earned dollars to work to help homeless veterans. See what they’re up to now.
What’s Up With 90 Day Fiance’s Chris Thieneman & Nikki Cooper?
Viewers got a small glimpse of Chris Thieneman and Nikki Cooper on the season of 90 Day Fiance. Now, the pair devote their energy to their small son and daughter and Chris’ two older daughters. Plus, Nikki and Chris are in the process of adopting another child. But, they’re also making time for philanthropy. Recently, in honor of Veteran’s Day, the couple donated a large plot of land for a housing development for displaced veterans.
The local news in Louisville reported that Nikki and her hubby Chris generously donated a $300,000 property as the location for a veterans only tiny home community. So, Soap Dirt contacted the Thienemans to find out more about what inspired the 90 Day Fiance co-stars to make sure a huge donation.
Nikki Cooper told us exclusively that she’s “always been passionate about giving back for as long as I could remember”. Then, she added that “I believe that you should do unto others as you’d want done unto you”. As for Chris, he’s a big military supporter. Scroll to see what the 90 Day Fiance sponsor of Annie said.
Chris Names All His Businesses After Military – Even Storage Unit Where David & Annie Lived
You might remember on 90 Day Fiance when Chris was still financially supporting David and Thai wife Annie. He let them live in an apartment above the storage business he owns and also let David Toborowsky drive one of his business vehicles.
The self-storage facility he owns (and where Annie and David Toborowsky infamously crashed with the hot plate) is called Fort Locks. And that was emblazoned on the side of the SUV that Chris and spouse Nikki Thieneman let the broke couple drive. Now, former 90 Day Fiance occasional cast member Chris Thieneman explains his passion for the military.
This project will provide a neighborhood of well-crafted tiny homes for veterans along with a community center that ensures the well being of residents. For this project, Chris is working with Veteran’s Club. Of the veterans, Chris says “they are my heroes”.
Any More 90 Day Fiance In Chris & Nikki’s Future?
Fans enjoyed seeing Nikki Cooper slam David for using her husband’s money on 90 Day Fiance, but those days are done. As the pair said on the Tell-All of Season 5, they’ve cut off David Toborowsky financially. And most fans can agree that was long overdue.
However, not all ties can be severed because Chris Thieneman sponsored Annie Suwan as David Toborowsky couldn’t afford it. So, that means he’s legally responsible for her, to some extent, for 10 years from the date of her visa. However, both Nikki and her husband Chris (and 90 Day Fiance fans), adore Annie.
So, while their reality show journey is done, viewers still recall Nikki Cooper and her husband Chris Thieneman fondly from Season 5. Keep watching new episodes of the TLC show Sunday nights.
