On April 16, Jessica, 30, dropped the bombshell news on her Instagram page as she told her followers about becoming a mother and why she chose to keep this a secret.
“On February 23, 2019 My little miracle Boy was born,” wrote Jessica. “Since I was 15 years old I was told that the high doses of chemotherapy I got to fight my leukemia would cause me to be sterile. It was something I struggled with accepting for years. After 15 years and countless specialists, I accepted the fact I would never have children of my own. God had other plans for me.”
She continued, “The level of shock and disbelief I had when I found out I was pregnant naturally was unimaginable. I had spent half of my life believing I would never feel these feelings. To say this came without struggle would be a lie.”
While Jessica didn’t reveal the identity of her child’s father, she did admit the situation is not ideal.
“The traditional family I’ve dreamed of my entire life is not something I have,” shared Jessica. “The vision of love, marriage then baby I had wanted is gone. I decided to keep my pregnancy off of social media and enjoy the time without the opinions and comments of others. I contemplated never posting about it and carrying on but IM A MOM, I have a son, a beautiful little miracle who I’ll cherish the rest of my life.”
Jessica’s ex-husband Mike reacted to her good news, as did Golnesa GG Gharachedaghi.
“A true miracle! I’m so happy for you to get what you always wanted and feared you wouldn’t & couldn’t, being a mom. I know in my heart & feel it in my soul that you will do an amazing job as a parent,” Mike commented under Jessica’s post. “You have a lot of love to share & wisdom from life to pass along to him. May God continue to bless the both of you with endless health & happiness ??♥️.”
GG wrote, “Yay!!!!!! Congratulations baby girl! I’m so happy for you and your journey. You deserve all of this happiness!”
Jessica and Mike got married back in March 2015. Just eight months later, Jessica filed for divorce following rumors of Mike’s infidelity. Their divorce was finalized in 2017.
