Shahs of Sunset's Mercedes MJ Javid Shows Off Baby Bump While On Bed Rest

Mercedes ‘MJ’ Javid and her husband, Tommy Feight, are expecting their first child together in May and the Shahs of Sunset star is now showing off her growing baby bump.

MJ, 45, took to social media to share a cute video of her growing belly with her fans and followers.

“#babybump,” she wrote in the caption of her short clip, which featured Mercedes panning the camera over her baby bump as she lifted up her shirt.

Mercedes announced she and Tommy were expecting their first child together in October of last year as she and her co-stars filmed the Shahs of Sunset season seven reunion special. A short time later, she confirmed that her baby is a boy.

Below is a photo of Mercedes’ baby bump taken from her Instagram video.

After posting a number of holiday photos on her Instagram page last month, which included Mercedes posing with her friends in a green and red two-piece silk outfit, the reality star faced questions about why she didn’t seem to be showing much of her baby bump.

In response, Mercedes took to Instagram, where she explained her miniature bump.

“My due date is on May 11 and people are saying ‘Why aren’t I showing, why aren’t I showing?’ I think that it’s a combination of two things: the first thing is that people don’t always show when they’re only 19 weeks, which is where I’m at. Number two: I’m not stick thin,” she said on Instagram Live. “I think that from the side I’m definitely thicker and that I’m getting there, but I don’t think that people always show that early.”

At the end of December, in a birthday post to her husband on Instagram, Mercedes revealed she’s been placed on mandatory bed rest.

Weeks later, she compared bedrest to “purgatory” in a tweet to Chrissy Teigen.

As for why MJ is on bed rest, she previously stated it is due to her pregnancy being higher risk than normal. She also tweeted last month that her “cervix became too small” after one of her followers asked her the same question. 

As most SHAHS fans are aware, MJ has been very open about undergoing IVF in order to get pregnant.

Mercedes and Tommy tied the knot in early 2018.
