UPDATE (November 30, 10:56 a.m.): MJ took to Twitter to share her excitement about the big day: "Due on Mother’s Day! So excited to experience motherhood and all that comes with it." See the adorable announcement, below.
The original story continues below.
Since news broke that Shahs of Sunset newlywed Mercedes "MJ" Javid is expecting her first child with husband Tommy Feight, the mom-to-be has shared very few details about her pregnancy. In an interview with The Feast earlier this month, MJ, who underwent IVF, said she's "not feeling pregnant. No morning sickness. No fatigue. Nothing." Now in an interview with Us Weekly, MJ revealed that she is due May 12 — Mother's Day — and that she and Tommy already have a name picked out for the baby.
“We do happen to have the name,” MJ said. “And the name is actually unisex. We’re holding onto that.”
While the couple is keeping the name a secret, MJ also revealed more about how she's been feeling. "I thought I would be psycho and hormonal,” she said. “I’m happy to report that it’s been easy. So far, so good!”
And it seems that her hubby has been with her every step of the way. “Tommy has been incredibly attentive,” MJ said. “At 3 o’clock in the morning, ‘Can I have watermelon?’ Even if we don’t have any watermelon, he’ll go and find some.”
MJ shared her good news with her Shahs pals at the Season 7 reunion. It's been a bittersweet year for MJ, one that included the passing of her father, Shams Javid, as well as her wedding with Tommy in April.
Preview the couple's rehearsal dinner in the clip for next week below and make sure to tune in to Shahs of Sunset every Thursday at 9/8c.
