Mercedes “MJ” Javid is a proud mommy!
Nearly two months after welcoming her first child with husband Tommy Feight, the Shahs of Sunset star shared the first photo of her son, Shams Francis, on Instagram on Wednesday.
The Bravolebrity added the caption:

The now-46-year-old welcomed her bundle of joy via cesarean section on April 17. Her rep confirmed to People that the baby boy weighed in at 6 lbs., 9 oz.
MJ’s rep also explained that the couple named their little one “Shams” in honor of her late father, while his middle name “Francis” is after Feight’s late mother.
Additionally, the television personality’s rep told the publication:
“MJ feels eternally grateful and blessed… The baby boy is happy and doing great, and the family can’t wait to bring him home.”
One day after little Shams’ arrival, Feight went on social media, and said the delivery “was the worst night of my life,” explaining:
“My wife had a ton of complications. She was in surgery for like five hours. They didn’t tell me nothing. But they’re amazing at Cedars. They saved her life. She’s still in ICU, she still hasn’t held her baby yet… That should probably happen later today, though.”
“[Little Shams] on the other hand is looking great… He couldn’t be happier… They have him in a tanning bed now with glasses on. No joke, a day old he’s already in a tanning bed. Couldn’t be more like his mother if he tried. She went spray tanning before we went to the hospital… But everything’s great. I’m the happiest guy on [earth].”
That same day, MJ’s rep confirmed that Javid was admitted into the ICU during her “extremely difficult” labor, exclaiming:
“The delivery was extremely difficult and Mercedes’ family was very worried for her, as there were multiple complications… baby Shams was born happy and healthy and [MJ is] feeling much better than her first day in ICU… Both her and Tommy are feeling extremely blessed that everything turned out okay and are thankful for Dr. Jay Goldberg, and Dr. Steve Rad, and all the doctors, nurses and staff at Cedars-Sinai who ensured the baby and her were taken care of… Tommy and Mercedes can’t wait to go home and spend time with their baby boy.”
As seen on the seventh season of their hit show, Javid and Feight tied the knot on April 21, 2018.
