In April, Mercedes “MJ” Javid and longtime boyfriend Tommy Feight were married after years of ups and downs.
Now, this Shahs of Sunset couple has even bigger news.
They’re expecting their first child!
Us Weekly reports that Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes Javid is pregnant!
She and her husband, Tommy Feight, are expecting their first child together.
According to the tabloid’s source, the couple first told Mercedes’ mother.
They then told the rest of the cast of Shahs of Sunset on Thursday, October 4 while filming the reunion special.
This is amazing news!
Mercedes has previously spoken about in-vitro fertilization and the sensibility of freezing one’s eggs.
“I really want all women who are single and 35 years old to run to their fertility doctors and get it done,” she suggests.
This is, of course, only directed at those who want to have children.
“I just think it’s really awful to wait and put it off until you’re over 40,” she confesses.
Mercedes says that she feels this way “because you’re just increasing your odds and you’re just making it harder for yourself.”
“And don’t worry about the costs,” she says, possibly forgetting that not everyone is rich.
Earlier this summer, she had “almost completed the [IVF] progress,” sources said.
“it is a lot of hormones that can make us feel crazy,” she admits, referring to the hormone injections one receives prior to getting eggs harvested.
“The truth is that I have a lot of ups and downs,” she confesses. “Moment to moment, especially on the hormones from IVF stuff.”
“You retain a lot of water,” she cautions those who would heed her advice and walk in her footsteps.
“You feel really great one moment and then terrible another moment,” she adds.
Yep. Hormones can make a person go a little nuts for a while.
“That’s the reason why I share because,” Mercedes begins.
She says: “In my Instagram Stories for instance, I’ll say, ‘I don’t feel good today, but I want everyone else to know not to beat themselves up, to be kind to yourself and know that those days happen to everyone.’”
“That’s how we connect to people,” Mercedes explains.
It always feels good to help others by using your own experiences.
“If you’re going through something and you and I share that,” she reasons. “[That’s] how much we just closed the gap between the two of us.”
Mercedes Javid and Tommy Feight have had, as we mentioned, some ups and downs during the course of their tumultuous relationship.
So some may be nervous about these two stars in particular being responsible for a new, tiny, helpless human being.
But it is the hope of fans that the fact that they decided to finally tie the knot is a sign that they had worked out previous issues and are a happier, healthier couple.
This is amazing news. We’re just sorry that her late father isn’t around to meet this granchild.
We can’t wait to watch Shahs of Sunset online and, hopefully, see MJ’s co-stars react to her huge news.
