Bravo TV‘s Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi  welcomed her first child, a baby boy!

The entrepreneur and reality TV star announced the news on her Instagram page. “WELCOME TO THE WORLD ELIJAH!!! ❤4/27/20❤” she captioned a post delivery photo of herself giving her newborn skin-to-skin kangaroo love.

“Very happy to report that last night Golnesa Gharachedaghi gave birth to Elijah Javad Gharachedaghi,” her rep told Entertainment Tonight. “The baby arrived last night in Los Angeles at 8:50 p.m., 6.5 pounds, 19.5 inches.”

The rep added: “Everyone is doing great and Golnesa is beyond excited to be a mom and start this new adventure.”

The feisty petite 38-year old was very open about welcoming her first child via in vitro fertlization and a sperm donor. She has stated in that past that though having a baby solo is frowned up on in her Persian culture, she had wanted a baby all her life and was not going to let old traditions get in the way of her dream.

On the Bravo show Watch What Happens Live, the Wüsah owner and cannabis entrepreneur told host Andy Cohen that while she’s had a “great support system” of family and friends, she endure a tough road to pregnancy.

“The biggest struggle I’ve had in general has just been having rheumatoid arthritis and dealing with the pregnancy,” she opened up to Cohen, also sharing that her doctors intended to induce her two weeks before her due date so she could go back to her intense treatment for that autoimmune disease.

According to PEOPLE magazine, “Gharachedaghi used a sperm donor and completed a round of in vitro fertilization (IVF) in August, but nearly lost her life after her first successful embryo transfer in the spring led to an ectopic pregnancy that required emergency surgery and the removal of both fallopian tubes.”

“This is what I wanted my entire life,” Gharachedaghi, 37, told People. “When little girls were talking about their perfect husband and their perfect weddings, I was talking about the 10 kids I was going to have.”

She plans to skip the husband and raise her child on her own. She’s the third cast member to be pregnant following Mercedes “MJ” Javid last Spring and Asa Soltan in July 2017.

She’s totally cool about raising her baby on her own.

“I’m OK right now focusing on me and my baby,” she said. “We’re in a day and age that women are so much more independent, and we’re not necessarily relying on men in order to move forward in life. I can start a family and have my child without being in a relationship right now.”

She added that if she is lucky to meet someone, “That’s great” but she is not interested in getting married in the future or necessarily being with a “forever life partner.”

“My forever will be my child,” she said.

Gharachedaghi got hitched to her on again, off again boyfriend Shalom Yeroushalmi in 2017 but the marriage lasted 7 weeks and they divorced.

The Shahs of Sunset season finale airs Friday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.

Shahs of Sunset castmember Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi opened up about her IVF journey to her deliberate solo motherhood journey while appearing on an episode of the Bravo TV show Watch What Happens Live this week.

On Tuesday, the Wüsah owner and cannabis entrepreneur told host Andy Cohen that while she’s had a “great support system” of family and friends, she endure a tough road to pregnancy.

“The biggest struggle I’ve had in general has just been having rheumatoid arthritis and dealing with the pregnancy,” she opened up to Cohen, also sharing that her doctors intended to induce her two weeks before her due date so she could go back to her intense treatment for that autoimmune disease.

According to PEOPLE magazine, “Gharachedaghi used a sperm donor and completed a round of in vitro fertilization (IVF) in August, but nearly lost her life after her first successful embryo transfer in the spring led to an ectopic pregnancy that required emergency surgery and the removal of both fallopian tubes.”

The trauma was was likely due to her rheumatoid arthritis, the mag added.

“What I went through a couple of months ago is so traumatizing,” she told PEOPLE when she announced her pregnancy in October, adding that “it’s still very scary.”

The precise process to getting pregnant started after she selected her sperm donor, had her eggs retrieved, then fertilized, developed and tested for genetic over 250 disorders.

“It took a long time, but I walked through each step with this knowledge and excitement that I was going to be a mom someday,” the Bravo star told PEOPLE of the process.

She added:

“This is what I wanted my entire life. When little girls were talking about their perfect husband and their perfect weddings, I was talking about the 10 kids I was going to have.

“I just always knew I’d be a mom someday,” she continued. “I’m finally at this point where I’m ready to make this move. I can’t wait to give this child a life of unconditional love without judgment, the same way my mom has shown me my whole life. I just wish she could teach me how to cook! I still haven’t figured that out yet.”

Happy Mother’s Day to all the new, sleep deprived moms. To all the newish moms who are finally getting their bearings and adjusting to a new normal. To all the moms of multiples. To all the working moms. To all the single moms. To all the moms of rainbow babies. To the moms who have lost children. To those with difficult relationships with theIr moms. To mother figures in the absence of children. To all the women who are moms in their hearts but their bodies aren’t cooperating. To anyone who woke-up this morning with a pang of sadness because they no longer have their mom here. And let’s not forget the moms who are totally content with fur babies, or nothing to take care of at all. Wherever you are in this relationship, celebrate that today.💕

Shahs of Sunset Star Believes Her Ecoptic Pregnancy Loss Was Karma

Golnesa Gharachedaghi

Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi of the Bravo TV docu series Shahs of Sunset posted a photo of her bandaged belly after surgery to remove her Fallopian tubes following an ecoptic pregnancy she suffered last year.

In the caption, to the photo, the Wusah entrepreneur says she believes the trauma was a result of Karma for things she has done in the past.  The episode was filmed last year and by now, we know she recovered from the traumatic experience and eventually conceived and is expecting her first child within weeks.

She recounted the experience on her Instagram page.

“Tonight on Shahs of Sunset, life throws me another curve ball and this one hits quite hard,” she wrote, while teasing the Season 8, episode 8 that aired Friday night. “I went to the ER for pain from a pregnancy that turned ectopic and next thing you know I’m waking up from surgery where they removed both of my fallopian tubes.”

We know from an interview with BravoTV, she explained that after discovering her pregnancy was ecoptic,  the drug they gave her to terminate the pregnancy wasn’t successful and they gave it two more times, they had to perform emergency surgery to remove both her Fallopian tubes. The chronic rheumatoid arthritis sufferer , which may have contributed to the second tube becoming dilated and needing to be removed as well.

“The sac wasn’t dissolving and it was on the verge of rupturing, which would have killed me. I’m lucky I got it in enough time,” she said.

After that, her only option to become pregnant was IVF. She had her second transfer in late August with the use of a sperm donor.

In her Instagram post talking about the episode this week, she said: “I’m a strong believer in karma and I do believe I’ve done enough wrong, that this is my karma cycle. I’m not a victim and will never play the victim role. This was simply a lesson. Thank you all for the love and support. It will be a hard episode for me to watch. But thank God I am about to have baby Elijah🙏🏼”

This is the first child for Gharachedaghi who underwent in vitro fertilization and got pregnant via a sperm donor.

The mom-to-be recently opened up about she’s coping with having to welcome her son into a world full of chaos in a tweet posted on March 18.

“I’m due in less than 2 months but am freaking out about having a baby while the entire world is crumbling,” she shared. “Stay strong my little Elijah. You’re entering a world of chaos my son.”

Even though she says she “could have focused” her “energy into finding a partner to have a baby with; that wouldn’t have been hard” Gharachedaghi told PEOPLE magazine,  “I’m totally choosing this because this is what I want; this is what I’m ready for. I love that.”

Inside Shahs of Sunset’s GG Gharachedaghi’s Moroccan-Themed Baby Shower

Shahs of Sunset star Gholnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi celebrated the upcoming arrival of her first child at a Moroccan -themed baby shower over the weekend.

She also announced during the event that she is expecting a baby boy. Her friend, event planner Anita Gohari, shared video and photos of the event which featured the name “Elijah” spelled out in gold decorative lettering before a backdrop above the dessert tableand the mom-to-be changed into a blue sweater with big blue eyelashes and announced the baby’s sex as well.

Earlier, she wore a neutral color bump-hugging dress with ruching and paid homage to her son sex and name with blue yarn weaved in her box braids and blue tips on her nails with the letter E on each finger.

She confirmed the gender news on a subsequent Instagram story.

“Hey y’all, we are at my baby shower and I just did a wardrobe change. As you guys can see, true blue — I’m having a boy,” the Shahs of Sunset star said on her Instagram Story, while showing off her blue and white manicure.

Gharachedaghi’s co-star, Reza Farahan, also shared the baby’s name in an Instagram post.

“Celebrating @gg_golnesa and sweet baby Elijah at her baby shower!” Farahan captioned a photo with the mom-to-be on Instagram. “Make sure to catch an all new episode of #shahs tonight 9pm @bravotv , it’s 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 and you’re not going to want to miss a minute of it!”

In October, Gaharachedaghi (who finalized her divorce from Shalom Yeyoushalmi in late 2018) shared that she was expecting her first baby after undergoing IVF using a sperm donor.

Her guests, including current and past cast members like Lilly Ghalichi, vendors and family shared photos in social media

And in exclusive photos in PEOPLE magazine revealed that guests were served food “on two oversized boards, one housing cheeses, charcuterie, vegetables, breads, and other appetizers, while another was flowing with fruits (cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwi, passionfruit, raspberries, dragonfruit, etc.)

They also had salmon, hummus, shrimp, sliders, fries, chicken skewers and lamb chops and got to enjoy a Persian tea (chai) station in honor of Gharachedaghi’s Iranian ancestry.

Hookahs and cocktails like mojitos and micheladas and other alcoholic drinks were available, as well as a variety of flavored waters. 

Among her Shahs family attending the event were Mike Shouhed and his girlfriend Paulina Ben-Cohen, Reza Farahan and husband Adam Neely, Destiney Rose, and Shah’s alum Lilly Ghalichi (who attended with her husband, Dara Mir).

Per PEOPLE:

The reality star also used the party as a chance to give back, asking guests to bring unopened essentials for babies (diapers, baby wipes, formula, blankets, clothings, bottles, pacifiers, etc.) in lieu of gifts. All items were donated to Baby2Baby, a Los Angeles-based charity that provides children living in poverty, ages 0-12 years, with necessities that every child deserves. “Everyone’s like, ‘The whole point of having a baby shower is to get the free gifts.’ But I told everybody, ‘I do not want gifts,’ ” Gharachedaghi explained to PEOPLE. “I just feel like, I’m not someone who likes to splurge; I can afford the necessities, and don’t want to spoil my son with fancy, fancy things. So why not use this opportunity to help others for people lacking in life?”

‘Shahs of Sunset’ Star GG Gharachedaghi is Expecting First Child, Via IVF and Sperm Donor

 

Bravo TV Shahs of Sunset star Golneasa “GG” Gharachedaghi is expecting her first child after successfully completing a round of in vitro fertilization in August using a sperm donor.

She is part of a recent trend of sorts of celebrity women choosing to have a baby on their own, following last July’s announcement from “Torn” singer Natalie Imbruglia who announced she was welcoming her first child solo  as well before welcoming son Max Valentine in October.

Gharachedaghi says she has always wanted to be a mother more than anything.

“This is what I wanted my entire life,” Gharachedaghi, 37, told People. “When little girls were talking about their perfect husband and their perfect weddings, I was talking about the 10 kids I was going to have.”

She plans to skip the husband and raise her child on her own. She’s the third cast member to be pregnant following Mercedes “MJ” Javid last Spring and Asa Soltan in July 2017,

“I heard about a really good donor concierge company, who scavenges through the data from all the sperm banks in the nation and some neighboring countries to find you what you’re looking for,” she said.

Sometime last year, she did a video interview explaining what she sought in a sperm donor candidate and explained the details of the process.

“It’s amazing how the process really works,” she said. “The profiles are about 47 to 50 pages each, and they’re filled with all this amazing information, like genetic background for the man and his entire family. I hate to joke about it, but you know the Build-A-Bear Workshop? It’s almost like that, but it’s a human. Build-A-Baby!”

This latest pregnancy is the second time for success but with a better outcome.

In April, after having a first successful IVF transfer, she wound up having an ectopic pregnancy requiring emergency surgery and both of her Fallopian tubes being removed.

“That was probably the most traumatizing moment of my life,” she said. “Literally, just a couple of days before, I was celebrating. And now, I was mourning.”

After undergoing therapy to overcome that traumatic experience, she gave it one more chance.

“You think this is supposed to be such an exciting time, but this second time around, I was sort of numb,” she said. “When I went in for the first ultrasound, I couldn’t breathe. I had anxiety for two days. I couldn’t sleep, thinking, ‘This is going to happen again.”

It worked!

“I had the ultrasound, and we saw [the embryo]. A week later, we saw the heart vessel pumping,” she said. “So I’ve slowly been feeling more and more relaxed about it.”

She’s totally cool about raising her baby on her own.

“I’m OK right now focusing on me and my baby,” she said. “We’re in a day and age that women are so much more independent, and we’re not necessarily relying on men in order to move forward in life. I can start a family and have my child without being in a relationship right now.”

She added that if she is lucky to meet someone, “That’s great” but she is not interested in getting married in the future or necessarily being with a “forever life partner.”

“My forever will be my child,” she said.

GG got hitched to her on again, off again boyfriend Shalom Yeroushalmi in 2017 but the marriage lasted 7 weeks and they divorced.

Meanwhile, she’s taking a low key style while waiting for baby. One of my faves: Senegalese Twists!

The ‘Shahs Of Sunset’ Beef Has Gone Off the HIPPA Rails

The Shahs of Sunset feud between former besties Reza Farahan and Mercedes  “MJ” Javid has turned really really ugly now that one of the cast members is being accused of violating federal HIPPA (Health Information Privacy Protection Act laws!

It all started when Javid accused all but one (Shervin ) of her fellow cast members of that BravoTV show of not visiting her in the ICU (intensive care unit) after being admitted there following a very challenging and life -threatening C-section delivery of her first child.

After struggling with infertility and going through a few IVF rounds, and enduring several other complications and extended bed rest, the 46-year gave birth to son Shams Frances Feight on April 17th.

The other cast members clapped back at Javid’s claim!

The most damaging and maybe illegal clapback happened in a series of screenshots that accidentally included MJ’s home address, phone number and other private info regarding medical procedures that took place and personal fertility info.

“When you’re evil and plotting against your best friend of 30 years, make sure not to leave receipts in plain sight,” Farahan captioned his post, where he included screenshots of his text exchanges with Javid, adding, “If none of my friends came to see me while I was in ICU giving birth I’d look inward.”

javid’s husband Tommy Feight reportedly responded by going to Farahan’s home and trashing a few potted plants which Farahan’s husband Adam Neely allegedly witnessed from the couple’s porch cam. 

By Monday, May 20, Farahan had filed a restraining order with legal documents obtained by E! News including allegations by Farahan that Feight “called and said he was going to kill me.”

LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) confirmed to E! News that “officers took a report after an act of vandalism occurred at the address.”

Though a lot of people speculated the feud and drama might have been feigned for the show, insiders claim it is real and with them getting the police and courts involved, it’s not looking fabricated to me either. 

“MJ is confused and heartbroken that her friends haven’t congratulated her on Shams’ birth, or asked about her health after she nearly died,” an inside source told E! News. “Not even her best friend Reza has reached out to her. Reza stopped contacting her a few weeks ago, and his since unfollowed her on social media.” 

According to the E! News report, MJ initially claimed she planned to skip season 9 but has been seen filming. The other members of the cast Destiney Rose, Golnesa Gharachedaghi, Mike Shouhed and Nema Vand, have all been seen filming for the show. 

MJ was the last to sign in for another season.

On Wednesday, Farahan apologized for the leak of private info and clarified the spat

“I want to make an apology and clarify something, then sign off,” he captioned his video apology on Instagram. “In my haste to get the timeline of events out, I included a text w/ sensitive information, that was sent to me by Tommy, using MJ’s phone. For that I’m truly sorry.” 

The reality TV star continued, “I had forgotten that was in there and I genuinely wish I could go back and cut that one out.  Unfortunately it’s out and I’m very sorry. Our lives are more important than a feud. I can’t explain how unsettling it is to feel unsafe in our own home, so we’re signing off.” 

In his post, he tagged fellow cast Mates.

Feight defended his actions:

“This is how my wife spent her 1st 2 days as a mom—it was without a doubt the most terrifying experience I have ever been through, i have never felt so alone and helpless and even now I can’t think of this experience without breaking down—she is a warrior and stronger then any women I know—she is my Queen my hero and my universe,” he wrote to his followerswith a photo of MJ from the hospital. “I will let NO ONE disrespect minimize and devalue all that she went through to bring our son into this world—i took vows to protect her and keep her safe and I will do that until my last dying breath #tillthedirt #myqueen #smother #khaleesi #bendtheknee.” 

MJ reposted the image. 

In sum, it appeared that having a baby is a sure fire way for your childless and single friends to forget about you or leave you out. 

It happened to original cast member Asa Soltan who left the show after becoming a mother.

Also, in my unsolicited opinion, if these folks really aren’t her true “friends” and maybe just TV show cast member “friends” if they cannot be there or hangout and socialize with each other when the cameras aren’t rolling.
