Meet Thomas Vaethroeder, 90 Day Fiance Star Daniele Gates Son

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way star Daniele Gates has a stand-up comedian son named Thomas Vaethroeder. “When I was 21 years old, I became a single mom,” Daniele gushed during a season 2 episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Love In Paradise. “After I had my son, I would choose men who I knew would be a good father figure, but not necessarily a good partner to me. So, after a series of really bad relationships, I took a five-year break to really focus on myself.”

Thomas has also spoken of his mom’s reality TV gig in one of his shows. In August 2022, Thomas made light of her time on 90 Day Fiancé and her affinity for Dominicans during a performance at Broadway Comedy Club. Together with her husband Yohan Geronimo, she resides in the Dominican Republic at the moment.

“You guys know that show 90 Day Fiancé?” Thomas asked the audience. “If you haven’t heard of it, the concept [is] two people meet each other, they’re in a relationship for a brief time, and then one of them gets engaged to the other for a green card.”

Thomas spoke to his audience, “My mom is on this show right now! The way it worked in her case, she went on vacation, she’s minding her own business, and a Dominican jumped out of a bush! And the rest is history.”

After acknowledging that he doesn’t watch the show, Thomas revealed details of his mother’s earlier dating endeavors. “I know that my mom loves Dominicans,” he spoke. “That was not a shock to me. I knew that from experience.”

“I grew up with a lot of Dominicans,” Thomas continued. “My mom was with another Dominican guy for a while, and he raised me for a couple of years.”

Who Is Thomas Vaethroeder Dad?

Thomas Vaethroeder has listed on Facebook that his father is named Shane Albritton. The public record reveals that Shane was born in September 1981 which makes him 41 years of age.


Shane comes from a family where teaching has been a “family business”. He was working as a social studies teacher at a public charter school The School For Examining Essential Questions of Sustainability, or SEEQS, of his great-grandmother Ethel Day’s interest in Hawaii in the first place.

“The family story was that Hawaii (Department of Education), much as they do now, was on the mainland recruiting teachers,” said Shane.

Shane’s great-grandmother Ethel a native of Chicago spent her life in Honolulu, Hawaii as a public school teacher. Thomas and his siblings are the fourth generation of Hawaii teachers in their family. Shane shared: “Her classmate in college got all excited about the idea and convinced my great-grandma to do it. And then at the last minute, her friend got cold feet and said ‘no, I can’t move that far away.’”

Shane was born in Oahu and raised in Maui. His path to becoming a public school teacher — his younger brother, Thomas, also teaches English at Prince David Kawananakoa Middle in Honolulu — follows a long line of family tradition. His grandmother, Mary Helen King (Ethel’s only child with her first husband) was also a teacher, as was Mary’s husband, Garner Hall Ivey, a civil engineer turned executive at Alexander & Baldwin and the former wrestling coach at Maui’s Baldwin High.

Shane’s father Terrence Albritton was a native Californian who once broke the world record in the shot put as a UH Manoa transfer student — and later served as a strength coach and physical education teacher at St. Anthony School of Maui.

After graduating from high school and enrolling in the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in New York on a football scholarship, Shane stayed there for a year before returning to Hawaii, where he worked in hotel security and went to Maui Community College. There, he met a political science professor who, according to him, had an impact on his choice of work.

Shane has also worked as a tour guide on the island of Maui and has traveled the world, instructing English to adults in countries like Spain, Brazil, and Portugal, where he first discovered his passion for education.

Shane is now married to his wife Madison Furlong since 30 June 2019. They share one daughter together.
