Big congratulations are in order for Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid and her husband Tommy Feight, as they are expecting their first child together!
She opened up about the exciting news to E! exclusively on Monday morning, where the mommy-to-be also revealed that they’ll be having a boy!
The 45-year-old calls her pregnancy a “huge blessing” after she had to undergo IVF (in vitro fertilization) in hopes of expanding her family. MJ spoke about it with OK! earlier this summer, where she described her journey to getting pregnant as an “emotional roller coaster.”
She credits her new hubby (they just got married on April 21st), with helping her throughout it all. “He’s been with me and present for every step of the way,” she shares. “When you get IVF done, there is a 10-day waiting period where you come back to get a blood and urine test and we did that together as well… I really love to see how happy Tommy is and how excited and nervous. You know, he gets to be a father!”
MJ detailed many things with E! about her life as a pregnant woman, including how she and Tommy plan on “eating really clean super foods” for the baby and how they are planning a “huge” shower. One thing she’s remaining mum about, however, is the name of her boy. “We definitely want to carry the Persian tradition from my side and the Irish tradition from Tommy’s side,” she teased.
