Shortly after Jessica Parido confirmed on Instagram that she had welcomed her first child back in February, ex-husband Mike Shouhed left a warm and supportive comment for the new mom, calling her son and her happy news "a true miracle!"
He continued, "I'm so happy for you to get what you always wanted and feared you couldn't and couldn't, being a mom. I know in my heart and feel it in my soul that you will do an amazing job as a parent. You have a lot of love to share and wisdom from life to pass along to him. May God continue to bless the both of you with endless health and happiness."
While Jessica kept many of the details about her little boy a secret, she did reveal how much of a surprise it was to learn she was pregnant given the treatments she underwent in her battle with leukemia 15 years ago.
Jessica also addressed her decision to keep much of this chapter of her life off social media: "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."
