Love Is Blind: Meet William-Jose Velez Gonzalez, Lydia Arleen Brother
Love Is Blind Lydia Arleen got engaged to Milton in season 5 of the show and Milton as well as viewers got to meet Lydia’s mom Lydia Ivelisse and her brother William-Jose Velez Gonzalez. Despite a brief appearance, Lydia’s brother was able to sway the opinions of viewers in his favor.
Will is honest with Milton during their lunch meeting. When Lydia reveals that they have previously talked about whether or not their kids will be multilingual and that they will solely speak Spanish at home. William-Jose adds, “So it’s less of a discussion. You just said it was going to be that way.”
William-Jose then adds, “You’re very demanding” and looks at Milton and then utters, “When she wants something…” but his sister interjects.
Lydia raises the issue of Milton leaving the toothpaste cap open later on in the conversation. Milton is attempting to defend himself when Will tells him, “You’re fighting a losing battle on this one, man.”
Will jokes to Lydia, “We can keep him,” giving the green light to Milton and Lydia’s relationship. He adds, “No return policy.” He also jokes to Milton, “And when you do have babies, we’re going to take a 12-month cruise until the baby is born because we’re not dealing with her pregnant.”
Viewers of the show enjoyed watching William-Jose on the show as a guest. So, here is what we know about him currently.
Puerto Rican-born Lydia Arleen, a competitor on season five of Love is Blind, is employed as a geologist in Roseville, California. After she announced her engagement to Milton on the well-known Netflix show, she lately became the talk of the town. At the age of 32, Lydia established a career as an environmental consultant, working with companies like Arcadis and Roux.
She graduated from the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez with a bachelor’s in geology, and the University of Maryland Global Campus awarded her a master’s in environmental management. Known for her unwavering moral principles, Lydia places great value on openness and emotional maturity, particularly in romantic relationships.
Despite the fact that Lydia and Milton were drawn to one another the instant they set foot inside the pods due to their shared interest in geology, the former was restraining Milton due to their age. She wasn’t sure how things would work out because she was 30 and he was 24, and she didn’t initially take him seriously despite his assurances that he was more than prepared for marriage.
But it wasn’t until her relationship with Ismael “Izzy” Zapata deteriorated that he genuinely started to see him from a different perspective since he at last decided to be open to vulnerability.
The truth is that Milton had a difficult childhood and was virtually forced to mature at a young age; as a result, he made light of emotion in every sense of the word. But despite being well aware of this truth, he gave it everything when he ultimately decided that in order to be happy, he needed to share parts of himself with others; he did prioritize work, but he didn’t mind spending time with his family either.
For Lydia, it was also a bonus that he admitted he needed to work on his family relationships because it indicated he didn’t mind being a work-in-progress or falling for someone who was older but still trying to figure herself out.
When Lydia admitted she had dated Uche Okoroha in the outside world and had briefly considered whether their re-encountering here was pure fate, things between her and Milton did become a bit tense, but they were able to work things out. He immediately made the decision to propose to his girlfriend because of their common sense of humor, similar levels of understanding, and ultimate desire to love and be loved unconditionally.
Despite feeling a little awkward, Milton got down on one knee and proposed to the woman he thought was the one for her in every way. He didn’t even think about it for a second.
