Mercedes "MJ" Javid Opens up About Feeling Sexy Again After Having Baby Shams

The Shahs of Sunset new mom says she just started "feeling like I can come out the 'mom cocoon' of sweats and hair buns."

By Zoey Washington

Since giving birth to her adorable baby, Shams Francis Feight, in April 2019, Mercedes "MJ" Javid hasn't held anything back about her life as a new mom. The Shahs of Sunset beauty has covered everything from trading in her signature glam look for makeup-free days to finding the confidence to slay a postpartum lingerie shoot. And though she has made more than one appearance proving that she hasn't given up her in-your-face fashion sense, MJ recently explained that she is only just now emerging out of her "mom cocoon."

How to Watch

Catch up on Shahs of Sunset on the Bravo App.

On February 24, MJ shared a very relatable message on Instagram while decked out in nothing more than a nude bodysuit, a white blazer, and thigh-high Gucci logo boots (naturally). MJ looks stunning in her sleek ensemble with her dark hair styled in long, straight layers to complement her smoldering smoky eye and peach lip color. 

Though we are used to seeing MJ in designer glam, she explained in her caption that she's only recently reviving this feeling. "Last week was one of the first times since having baby Shams that I began to start feeling like I can come out the 'mom cocoon' of sweats and hair buns and got into the feeling of fashion and glam," she wrote. 

"Most days, as a new mom, I felt like I lost that internal connection to feeling desirable," she continued. "It’s okay to have stages when it’s only about prioritizing baby and just do the bare minimum, i.e. showers." Moms everywhere just did a collective nod in agreement. MJ goes on to encourage followers to be patient with themselves as they start the journey to get their grove back. "You are sexy. You are confident. You still got it." 

And just like that we couldn't love MJ more.
