On February 23, 2019 My little miracle Boy was born. Since I was 15 years old I was told that the high doses of chemotherapy I got to fight my leukemia would cause me to be sterile. It was something I struggled with accepting for years. After 15 years and countless specialists I accepted the fact I would never have children of my own. God had other plans for me. The level of shock and disbelief I had when I found out I was pregnant naturally was unimaginable. I had spent half of my life believing I would never feel these feelings. To say this came without struggle would be a lie. The traditional family I’ve dreamed of my entire life is not something I have. The vision of love, marriage then baby I had wanted is gone. I decided to keep my pregnancy off of social media and enjoy the time without the opinions and comments of others. 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

Through the post, Jessica explained that she was struggling with infertility since she was 15. She thought she would never get pregnant but after 15 years, she found that she was expecting.

The California native didn't disclose who the father of the baby is.

The new mom was previously married to her Shahs of Sunset co-star Mike Shouhed. The former couple married on March 29, 2015, at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.

However, less than five months later in August 2015, she and her then-husband called it quits.
