Mercedes "MJ" Javid has a baby on the way, and based on what the Shahs of Sunset pal had been craving early in her pregnancy, her mom, Vida, was pretty sure a grandson was coming.

Back in October, MJ told The Feast that she wasn't having any unusual cravings. Instead, she was sticking to her regular diet. Vida added, "My friends asked me, 'Does she have a craving for anything that you can cook for her?' I said, 'No. She feels normal. She doesn’t feel any different.' They said, 'It's a boy.'"

But now, the Shahs pal is starting to crave different kinds of foods. Hmm, will this throw a wrench in Vida's prediction? 

In a March 17 Instagram post, MJ provided an update on what's been cooking (besides her baby, of course). Here's what she wrote, in part:

"One big thing that has changed for me during pregnancy is the kinds of foods I crave; raw fruits and veggies like never before. I also lend the change in me to the importance of making healthy choices for my unborn child who deserves good choices. Also, the responsibility to do my best to avoid gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, both of which, I am happy to report, I do not have, although we’re not done yet, so it’s important for me to continue being careful about my diet."

In a video that went along with her post, MJ added, "I think the biggest transformation, the biggest, biggest change, that I'm really looking forward to continuing to embrace after pregnancy for the rest of my life is that I've really developed a strong craving for the very foods that I used to think ... were bland." She also mentioned that she's living for Persian cucumbers, baby carrots, and greens. 

Boy or girl, this baby is already a good influence.
