Mike Shouhed Opens Up About Being "Uncle" to GG and MJ's Kids
The Shahs of Sunset cast member calls Mercedes "MJ" Javid and Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi "phenomenal" moms.
There are a few new and adorable little additions to the Shahs of Sunset group. Two years ago, Mercedes "MJ" Javid became a mom to son Shams Feight, and one year later, Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi welcomed her own son, Elijah Javad Gharachedaghi. And there is no one more excited about all the little ones than Mike Shouhed.
"It makes me so proud to see that our group is evolving. And, MJ and GG are doing such a phenomenal job of being moms. I knew that they would, but they’ve exceeded my expectations and my wildest thoughts of what kind of moms they would be. And their children are beautiful and smart and so well mannered and so loved by their own families and by us, which is the extension of their families. And, you know, my nephews are amazing, and I love them. Yes. I’m, I’m Amu Mike," he said of his role as an "uncle" to the new generation of Shahs of Sunset.
And let's not forget that Mike also has another set of special kids in his life, thanks to girlfriend Paulina Ben-Cohen, who is a mom. "Paulina brings just joy to my life. The kids bring joy to my life," Mike added.
While Mike isn't related to MJ or GG, he notes that the Shahs of Sunset are family, and he explained just how that works for them. "I mean, sometimes we forget that we’re not related because we treat each other like brothers and sisters. Like I said, if you don’t have a deep-rooted bond with one another, there’s no real friendship there, and these people are like my siblings. And, we fight like siblings, we love like siblings. We have each other’s backs like siblings," he said. "And this season, although we have our trials and tribulations, we come right back together and we bring the fun again."
