Golnesa GG Gharachedaghi has had a long and hard road but she is finally almost ready to welcome her baby boy. The Shahs of Sunset star couldn’t have been due in a more chaotic time.
With the Coronavirus pandemic in full effect, there are multiple restrictions when it some to visitation in medical facilities. For some, that means not going to see their loved ones in senior care homes and during hospital visits.
For expectant mothers, there have been unfortunate cases where the pregnant woman has to give birth without a familiar face around.
Luckily, at the place Golnesa is planning to give birth at — she’s allowed to have one person in the room.
The Bravolebrity opened up about what it’s like getting so close to her due date in these hectic times.
GG chatted with E!’s Just the Sip where she said: ‘We are living in such a weird time right now with this Coronavirus situation that has changed everything for everyone. Being eight and a half months pregnant and scared to leave my house. I can’t go to doctors regularly anymore. I have an autoimmune disease and I’m going through issues with that. And knowing I have to get isolated in a room, it’s been a little tough the last few weeks. It’s been tough. It’s been scary. This wasn’t a part of what I thought it was going to be like. I’m excited but it’s hard to see past what’s happening.’
To make matters even more complicated, this pregnancy did not come easy to the soon-to-be first-time mom. GG was pregnant before but suffered from an ectopic pregnancy that led to her having to have surgery and losing both of her fallopian tubes.
Nonetheless, she persevered and went through the process again. Now she is going to have to face the realities of volunteering to be a single mom.
GG found advice in Bravo’s Andy Cohen who is a single father to an adorable baby boy.
‘I saw Andy Cohen in New York, I said to him, ‘What are you going to say when [your son] Ben asks why don’t I have a mommy?’ He said, ‘I honestly don’t know but you’ll figure it out and just know your love should be enough.”
Here’s to hoping Gharachedaghi has a stress free delivery.
