Shahs of Sunset fans are watching Golnesa Gharachedaghi’s journey to become a mom this season. It has been a long process for GG, who ultimately used a sperm donor and IVF to conceive.
Over the weekend, GG had a baby shower at her home to announce her baby’s sex and name.
In an interview with People, GG shared that she is expected a son and that she decided to name him Elijah. GG told the magazine, “I’ve always wanted to be a mom, and am thrilled I’ll be raising a little man. I’m just so happy to be here celebrating with all these people who have supported me on this journey.”
Why Elijah? GG said, “Honestly, since I was little, I have been in love with Elijah Woods.” For the record, the actor’s name is actually Elijah Wood.
Another reason that the name is so special to GG is that her sperm donor is Jewish. GG told People, “It’s a Hebrew name, so it’s kind of honors my ‘Donor Daddy,’ as I call him. It was just perfect; it all worked out perfectly.”
Some of GG’s Shahs of Sunset co-stars attended the baby shower. Reza Farahan and his husband Adam Neely were there. No word if they played naked Jenga at the event though. Mike Shouhed and Destiney Rose went to the celebration as well. Even one season wonder Lilly Ghalichi attended.

Of course, Mercedes Javid did not go. These two have been publicly beefing a while, again. GG’s best-friend-turned-nemesis Shervin Roohparvar wasn’t seen at the event. During this season’s premiere episode, GG shared that she’s done with Shervin because he also got into the cannabis business. Nema Vand, GG’s almost love interest, wasn’t in the photos either, which isn’t that surprising considering their tumultuous tendencies. And I have no idea where GG stands with the new girl Sara Jeihooni, but she didn’t appear to be in attendance as well.
