Shahs of Sunset Star Jessica Parido Secretly Welcomed Her First Child Months Ago

Ex Shahs of Sunset star Jessica Parido has gone and done a Kylie Jenner. The reality TV star managed to keep her pregnancy out of the headlines and even gave birth secretly last month to a baby boy.

Parido, who is the ex wife of regular cast mate Mike Shouhed, revealed on Instagram this week that she welcomed her first child on February 23.

“On February 23, 2019 My little miracle Boy was born,” Jessica wrote in the post, which featured a photo of her beautiful baby bump. The post spoke about Parido’s past of having undergone treatments in her battle with leukemia 15 years ago which she was told would make her unable to have children. The mum also recently shared a post about the 15th anniversary of her bone marrow transplant to treat her leukemia on Instagram. “Since I was 15 years old I was told that the high doses of chemotherapy I got to fight my leukemia would cause me to be sterile. It was something I struggled with accepting for years,” she shared. “After 15 years and countless specialists I accepted the fact I would never have children of my own. God had other plans for me.”

On February 23, 2019 My little miracle Boy was born. Since I was 15 years old I was told that the high doses of chemotherapy I got to fight my leukemia would cause me to be sterile. It was something I struggled with accepting for years. After 15 years and countless specialists I accepted the fact I would never have children of my own. God had other plans for me. The level of shock and disbelief I had when I found out I was pregnant naturally was unimaginable. I had spent half of my life believing I would never feel these feelings. To say this came without struggle would be a lie. The traditional family I’ve dreamed of my entire life is not something I have. The vision of love, marriage then baby I had wanted is gone. I decided to keep my pregnancy off of social media and enjoy the time without the opinions and comments of others. I contemplated never posting about it and carrying on but IM A MOM, I have a son, a beautiful little miracle who I’ll cherish the rest of my life and to not share this would be not sharing me ❤️

“The level of shock and disbelief I had when I found out I was pregnant naturally was unimaginable. I had spent half of my life believing I would never feel these feelings,” she said in the post. “To say this came without struggle would be a lie.”

The identity of the father was not revealed and it’s unclear whether or not Parido is in a current relationship with anyone. Parido was married to Shouhed for eight months before filing for divorce in November 2015.

“The traditional family I’ve dreamed of my entire life is not something I have,” Jessica said in her baby announcement on Instagram. “The vision of love, marriage then baby I had wanted is gone.”

Parido went on to explain why she decided to keep the pregnancy a secret. “I decided to keep my pregnancy off of social media and enjoy the time without the opinions and comments of others,” she said. “I contemplated never posting about it and carrying on but I’M A MOM, I have a son, a beautiful little miracle who I’ll cherish the rest of my life and to not share this would be not sharing me.”
