Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s baby boy has arrived!

On Tuesday, the “Shahs of Sunset” star’s representative released a statement announcing Gharachedaghi’s son, Elijah Javad Gharachedaghi, was born Monday night in Los Angeles.

“Very happy to report that last night Golnesa Gharachedaghi gave birth to Elijah Javad Gharachedaghi,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “The baby arrived last night in Los Angeles at 8:50 p.m., 6.5 pounds, 19.5 inches. Everyone is doing great and Golnesa is beyond excited to be a mom and start this new adventure.”

The Bravolebrity previously announced the sex and name of her bundle of joy at a baby shower in March, attended by co-star Reza Farahan and his husband, Adam Neely.

The 38-year-old also shared the first photo of her child on Instagram.

“WELCOME TO THE WORLD ELIJAH!!! ❤4/27/20❤,” she captioned the sweet snap of her holding Elijah at the hospital.

Though Gharachedaghi admits it was challenging to give birth during the coronavirus pandemic, she says it pales in comparison to how she will explain to her son how he was conceived.

Last October, she told People that she underwent in-vitro fertilization using sperm from an anonymous donor.

“Having a baby during this unfortunate pandemic is hard, but it’s nothing compared to the many obstacles which lie ahead of me,” she wrote in a candid Instagram post on Wednesday. “It was definitely a bit scary to be in the hospital knowing this extremely contagious virus is all around, but it’s also scary that I don’t have all of the answers to give my son when he asks me certain questions like, ‘Who is my dad?’”

She added, “It’s scary that I will have to play the role of 2 parents and teach a boy how to become a man when I know nothing about it myself.”

Gharachedaghi also reveals that her “arms and hands go numb” after holding her baby for 10 minutes, and that “it so painful for me to cuddle my baby all day” due to her rheumatoid arthritis, which she was diagnosed with when she was 29.

Despite these obstacles, Gharachedaghi “wouldn’t trade any of it for the world!”

“He is so special to me and I completely submit my entire self to him for as long as my heart beats... because it now only beats for him!” she exclaimed.

Having a baby during this unfortunate pandemic is hard, but it's nothing compared to the many obstacles which lie ahead of me. It was definitely a bit scary to be in the hospital knowing this extremely contagious virus is all around, but it's also scary that I don't have all of the answers to give my son when he asks me certain questions like, "Who is my dad"? It's scary that after holding him for just 10 minutes, my arms and hands go numb because of my rheumatoid arthritis and it makes it so painful for me to cuddle my baby all day. It's scary that I will have to play the role of 2 parents and teach a boy how to become a man when I know nothing about it myself. There are a million obstacles which lie ahead for me and baby Elijah, but I honestly wouldn't trade any of it for the world! He is so special to me and I completely submit my entire self to him for as long as my heart beats... because it now only beats for him! #MySon #Grateful
