Mercedes "MJ" Javid is just too excited for the holidays! The Shahs of Sunset star is looking forward to spending her baby son Shams Francis' first Christmas this year with her family. She welcomed her first child this past April with husband Tommy Feight after undergoing IVF.
The 47-year-old recently dished to E! News about her holiday plans and about how she will be spending her son's first Christmas.
"This is my first Christmas with my beautiful son," the Bravo star told the outlet. "My husband was born Catholic and because he lost his parents at such a young age, having this incredible blessing—this beautiful child—is beyond a dream. Every second with our son just feels like an out of body experience. We're so happy."
The real estate agent added that she hopes to create traditions with her little one. "When you have children, all of a sudden you adopt this grand set of values and tradition and I wish I could start life all over again," she continued. "Since I can't do that, I have an incredible new lease on life where I want to give him and provide him with so many beautiful things."
It was a long and hard journey for Mercedes to get pregnant. MJ suffered from fertility issues on the road to motherhood but successfully underwent IVF.
The reality TV personality also spoke candidly about her postpartum depression and explained how she deals with the condition. "I have such a strong sense of humor about everything," she said on SiriusXM’s Reality Checked with Amy Phillips. "I journal, I videotape. I'll pull my camera out and I'll say something. I'm essentially talking to myself but saying something on a video journal, a vlog ... it helps me work through things."
In July, MJ emotionally revealed that she's unable to have any more kids. "Since I can never carry a baby again, I’m extremely grateful to those who made sure I had this shoot, and keep this memory forever," she captioned a maternity shoot she did while pregnant on Instagram. "My body is still healing from pregnancy, my heart is fragile and vulnerable. I wish I had the compassion I have now, as a new mom, all of my life."
