The Bravo personality and her husband, Tommy Feight, welcomed a baby boy on Wednesday, MJ's rep confirmed exclusively to E! News.

The child's name? Shams Francis Feight.

The child's measurements? He weighed in today at six pounds and nine ounces and was born in Los Angeles.

The little boy was also born via C-Section, with MJ feeling "eternally grateful and blessed" following this development, according to her rep.

The name is unusual, of course, but it has a meaning: Shams is in honor of MJ's father, who passed away; while Francis is in honor of Tommy's mom, who is also no longer with us.

“Mom and baby are doing great. The baby is happy and healthy," the rep adds.

This is so great to hear... because Javid has documented her difficult pregnancy on social media.

She has been very open about her struggles.

Two months ago, for example, the star revealed that she was hospitalized after her cervix “measured too short,” which is considered a “high risk” for a miscarriage.

As Shahs of Sunset fans know well, MJ chose to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) in hopes of expanding her family with Tommy.

Moreover, she went through numerous surgeries to remove uterine polyps in preparation for an embryo transfer. Simply put: She REALLY wanted this baby.

"The truth is that I have a lot of ups and downs, moment to moment, especially on the hormones from IVF stuff," she told Us Weekly last year, adding:

"You retain a lot of water. You feel really great one moment and then terrible another moment.

"That’s the reason why I share because, in my Instagram Stories for instance, I’ll say, ‘I don’t feel good today, but I want everyone else to know not to beat themselves up, to be kind to yourself and know that those days happen to everyone."

Keeping followers apprised of her status, MJ also wrote the following after a recent hospital visit:

"Feeling overwhelmed with excitement, gratefulness, and hopeful about what lies ahead.

"My husband and I are very grateful and hopeful and appreciative of this journey and what is to come.

"We wouldn't have made it this far without my doctors. My favorite thing throughout this journey is going to the doctor to see the baby on the ultrasound."

Earlier this week, former Shahs of Sunset star Jessica Parido announced that she secretly gave birth to a baby boy, telling folks on Instagram:

“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 and to not share this would be not sharing me.”

Hey now!

Congrats to Jessica and MJ!
