Loren and Alexei Brovarnik, who got married four years ago after being on 90 Day Fiancé, just announced the name of their baby boy. The new momma documented her newborn’s weight, height, time of birth, and more on a jubilant Instagram post last week. On Wednesday, though, she finally revealed her son’s name: Shai Josef.
“We are so excited to introduce you to our son… Shai Josef Brovarnik We are so in love 💙🧿(pronounced like ‘shy’ and Shai means ‘gift’),” she captioned a photo of their growing family at home. The reality stars are both Jewish (Loren’s maiden name is Gladstone and Alexei is from Israel), which is why they chose a Hebrew name. They actually met on a Birthright trip to Israel, where Alexei was a medic. The pair wed before the 90 days were up in America and Israel, but now they live in Florida.
Even though they experienced culture shock and skeptical family members, at least they had their religion in common. We don’t know how their baby-naming process went down, but we can imagine that the name holds a special place in both their hearts.
Throughout the week, Loren has been posting sweet posts of her one-week-old baby. “This little rockstar is enjoying his first weekend, first feed post and daddy’s outfit choice!” she captioned a photo of Shai wearing a Rolling Stones onesie and beanie hat.
Loren also posted photos of her experience giving birth with a caption acknowledging how she’d delivered during the pandemic. “During these crazy times, this is the smile we needed!” You can say that again.
