Why Golnesa from Shahs of Sunset is Proud of Her Child's Donor Conception Story
*This episode is part of the pregnantish 'Reality of Infertility' series featuring reality stars and public personalities who have undergone fertility treatments to build their families and are sharing their fertility journeys in honor of awareness, education, and advocacy.
Those who watch reality TV and Bravo, in particular, know that Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi from “Shahs of Sunset” has never been shy to use her voice to challenge and support people she loves and that she's not scared to go after what she wants; but what people may not know is how much this has extended to the way Golnesa became a mom.
Golnesa has been vocal about her path to parenthood with sperm donation, which also includes a devastating ectopic pregnancy that could have literally killed her. This experience led to the removal of both of her fallopian tubes. Determined to try again, Golnesa pursued IVF months later and got pregnant with her baby boy Elijah, the love of her life, who is now a toddler.
In this episode, Andrea and Golnesa discuss the many extraordinary ways families are created today, why Golnesa pursued single motherhood, and why she feels her fertility and family story was always meant to be.
