90 Day Fiance stars Loren Goldstone Brovarnik and Alexei Brovarnik welcomed their son Shai Brovarnik six weeks ago. It is the first child for this couple. We’ve watched their love story come full circle thanks to their appearances on several TLC shows. Although the couple is very open with their fans and followers about their lives, they’ve left a few details about their son’s arrival private.
So, now as their baby special gets ready to air tonight, we are about to learn a few more behind the scenes tidbits the couple finally shares. Here’s what we can expect to see tonight’s episode of What Now?
90 Day Fiance News: Loren Goldstone & Alexei Brovarnik Welcome Baby Shai
90 Day Fiance alums Loren Goldstone Brovarnik and her spouse Alexei Brovarnik’s son Shai was born on April 14, 2020, in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. They affectionally referred to their bundle of joy as “Baby Brov” even after he was born. Then a week later they revealed his name to the public. It is a Jewish custom to wait until a son’s bris to share his name. So the Brovariniks were just keeping to their religious beliefs.
90 Day Fiance followers recall Alexei and Loren’s little prince was originally expected to be born in May. However, the couple revised his due date to mid to late April. But Baby Shai was extremely active and plans changed fast. Although Loren already had a c-section planned, that plan went out the window, and Shai was born via an emergency c-section.
Shai Brovarnik Spent First Few Days Of His Life In NICU
90 Day Fiance newborn Shai Brovarnik’s birth came as a bit of a surprise for his first-time parents. Since Shai arrived a few weeks early, he was placed in the NICU (Newborn Intensive Care Unit). He spent the first 48 hours of his life there. This is standard protocol. However, Loren and Alexei’s son was able to go home with his mother soon after those initial first hours in the NICU.
Originally the 90 Day Fiance and Pillow Talk personalities planned for Loren’s mom, Marlene Goldstone, to move in and live with them once Shai was born. However, the COVID-19 quarantine put a monkey wrench into their plans. So the Brovarniks had to revisit their post-pregnancy strategy. Loren was banking on her mom being there to help her get through the initial few days. She was relying on her help to adjust to motherhood as well as get the rest needed to recover from her c-section.
90 Day Fiance: Alexei & Loren Navigate Parenthood
90 Day Fiance parents Loren and Alexei Brovarnik are settling into their new roles as mom and dad. Loren says she loves everything about her son Shai. Although she’s not getting all the sleep she wants and has spit up in her hair and on her clothes, there is nothing she doesn’t like about being a mom. Plus, Shai’s taken well to breastfeeding.
Fans cannot help but comment on how much Baby Brov looks like his daddy. Although he may resemble his father, Baby Brov certainly has his momma’s mannerisms and facial expressions. He’s the perfect combination of both his doting parents.
