Reality Star Mercedes “MJ” Javid Pregnant with First Child at 44
“The Shahs of Sunset” star Mercedes “MJ” Javid has a bun in the oven!
The 44-year-old is expecting her first child with husband Tommy Feight. Us Weekly reports Javid told the cast while shooting the reunion on Thursday.
Last month, Javid was able to appear on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" without sparking any pregnancy rumors.
Over the summer, Mercedes opened up about her struggles to get pregnant, telling the publication, “The truth is that I have a lot of ups and downs, moment to moment, especially on the hormones from IVF stuff. You retain a lot of water. You feel really great one moment and then terrible another moment. That's the reason why I share because, 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.'”
She stressed the importance of freezing one's eggs before 40. Mercedes said, “I really want all women who are single and 35 years old to run to their fertility doctors and get it done. I just think it's really awful to wait and put it off until you're over 40 because you're just increasing your odds and you're just making it harder for yourself and don't worry about the costs and don't worry about… it is a lot of hormones that can make us feel crazy.”
