Lilly Ghalichi and her husband, Dara Mir, recently had their second child. Her second pregnancy ended on a happy note. However, it was almost not satisfied. The alum of the Shahs of Sunset had a rough few hours before the birth of her second child. She suffered a medical emergency that nearly killed her and the baby. But with proper medical care, she overcame the hurdles and now shares her story.
Lilly Ghalichi gives birth to her second child, son ‘Kash-Mir’
On June 24, 2022, Ghalichi and Mir welcomed their second child, son Kashton Mir. Their story of having their second child is not as happy as it seems now. They had been called to the hospital the day before for an unexpected delivery. Her doctors had to induce her due to an early diagnosis of HELPP syndrome, a rare pregnancy disorder. Ghalichi had experienced various symptoms at the end of her pregnancy, such as acute nausea, impaired vision, and so on. Though she turned them down as usual, her doctors thankfully didn’t.
She was induced at the hospital shortly after arriving, a journey she also videotaped and then posted to her Instagram stories. She described the event as the “hardest” she had ever experienced. Ghalichi released a video of her shaking in pain as doctors tried to force her body into contractions moments later. She had been in this condition for more than eight hours. They arrived at the hospital at 8pm on June 23, and at 5am on June 24, she discussed the cesarean section with her doctor, Dr. Thai Aliabadi. They saw the baby’s heart rate drop with each contraction.
dr. Aliabadi said she would give anything to get the baby out, which she did. Ghalichi and Mir named their child after an idea of her friend Kim Zolciak-Biermann after they had their first child, daughter Alara. When they had a boy, she recommended naming him Kash so that he could be known as ‘Kashmir’. They had a daughter for the first time. They chose Kash this time because they had a son. Mir came up with the name Kashton, which he took.

Ghalichi not only captured the birth but also the things she did before and after in her Instagram stories. She discussed how she was preparing for the birth and how anxious she was during the process. She started preparing for her hospital stay as soon as the hospital called her. The first thing she did was apply cosmetics. “They don’t like glamor in the hospital anymore,” she said in one of her Instagram stories, but she still managed to look fabulous. Ella Vardanyan did her makeup, while Brandon Palestino did her hair.
The couple had packed a lot of stuff in their car for their hospital stay. She shared in her stories about her postpartum routine after returning from the hospital with a healthy Kashton. Ghalichi felt that being vulnerable was not something negative and revealed her postpartum body and skin care regimen.
