‘Married To Medicine’s Quadd Welcomes Baby Girl via Adoption

Married with Medicine star Quad Webb is the latest Bravolebrity to welcome a child and the second in a few months to do so solo.

Webb introduced the world to her new daughter, Ariana, and recently shared a tender first photo on her Instagram page this week.

Just last week, rapper Iggy Azalea decided to use the Black Lives Matter movement to introduce the world to her new son she had delivered weeks prior with beau and fellow rapper Playboi Carti.

Similarly, Webb did too, using the motto of the movement to share a first photo of a  baby born months ago in April.

“Life is precious, it should be protected and valued #blacklivesmatter,” Quad captioned a photo of her daughter grasping her thumb.

She had previously announced the April birth and plans to retrieve the baby named from her birth home safely during the COVID era.

“It is exciting news, and there are so many moving pieces. My mom and I are extremely happy to welcome baby Ari to her new village,” Quad told Bravo TV‘s media subsidiary The Daily Dish in a statement. “She was born on April 8th, and since then we have been working to get her home to begin what will surely be a joyous, successful and opportunity filled life.”

She also talked about the rapid changes she’s had in her life since finalizing her divorce from Dr. Gregory Lunceford whom she was married to during most of her stint on the Bravo TV franchise show.

“There’s so much happening so fast! I’ve been in the process of looking for a new home, and now it has a completely different meaning,” she shared. “I’m eager and anxious, as my family means so much to me. We thank you in advance for all of your prayers and well wishes.”

Another Bro TVav star Golnesa “GiGi” Gharachedaghi delivered her first child solo as did executive producer and host Andy Cohen who welcomed a son via surrogatre last year.

Congrats!

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.

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.”

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.”

The Expensive Ways Celebrities Prepare For a New Baby

For most people, the glamorous life is a fantasy and something some aspire to attain. It’s why we love celebrities and high profile people.

It’s why shows like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and more recently, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and half of the Bravo TV line up do so well.

If we were to be totally engaged with that lifestyle, here is one of the ways we would make our 2020 amazing.

Get Extravagant PUSH presents like Sports Cars

One of the best ways that you can make your 2020 more glamorous if you are a celebrity is to invest your money in a new sports car. Travis Scott famously gifted his ex Kylie Jenner a $1.4M Ferrari after she welcomed the couple’s first child together, Stormi Webster.

Take Luxury Babymoons

Us peons may take a Babymoon to Miami to get away before baby arrives.

Celebrities have access to more luxurious locales. Ciara who is expecting her third child, but second with her husband Russell Wilson announced the news while chilling on a rock in Turks and Caicos.

They just whip out their list of some of the most glamorous destinations that you can visit and close their eyes and pick!

Start a Maternity Fashion Line

When we get pregnant and can find something chic to wear, we hold on to our non maternity clothes for as long as we can before having to break out the overalls and succumb to the belly. Celebrity women just call up a few sponsors and brands and start an entire fashion line. Several famous women like Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham and Jessica launched maternity fashion lines while expecting.

If we wanted to emulate that sort of extravagance we would have to do stuff like hit the vintage shops or sell our old clothes on sites like Depop

Buy New Homes for Baby

When baby makes three, the average new family convert the old study into a nursery or clean out the spare room. Stars purchase a larger home to accommodate the nanny and extra staff that will be on board to help them navigate parenthood.

To prepare for the arrival of their first child together, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis upgraded their home and purchased a $10M 3 bedroom, 4 bath Beverly Hills home to accommodate their growing family, according to US Weekly. They aren’t the only ones.

Purchase the Most Expensive Crib

Finally, while the rest of us are scouring sale ads and stalking Groupon for deals on strollers and car seats, celebs like Beyonce splurge on high price top of the line products like purchasing a $3,500 lucite crib for her first child Blue Ivy.

And not just cribs, these high paid figures can afford to get the most expensive car seat, designer new born clothing and more. It’s part of the perk of being wealthy.

In the meantime, we gawk and point and admire from our computer screens.

‘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!
