Lilly Ghalichi Had Her Second Baby in a Hurry but Still Glammed Up
Lilly Ghalichi just welcomed her second baby with her husband, Dara Mir. The end of her second pregnancy was a happy one.
However, it almost wasn't happy. The Shahs of Sunset alum had a difficult few hours before her second child came into the world.
She had a medical emergency that almost took her and the baby's life. But, with good medical attention, she got through the difficulties and is now sharing her experience.
Lilly Ghalichi Welcomed Second Baby, Son 'Kash-Mir'
Ghalichi and Mir welcomed their second child, son Kashton Mir, on June 24, 2022. Their story of having their second kid isn't as jolly as it now sounds.
A day before, they were immediately called to the hospital to have an unplanned delivery. She had to be induced after her doctors took early notice of a rare pregnancy condition called HELPP syndrome.

Ghalichi had been experiencing a few symptoms near the end of her pregnancy, such as extreme nausea, blurry vision, etc. And even though she wrote those off as normal, her doctors, fortunately, did not.
Upon reaching the hospital, a journey she also documented and later shared on her Instagram stories, she got induced. She said the experience was the "hardest" she had had till now.
A few slides later, Ghalichi posted a video where she was shaking with pain as the doctors tried to force her body into labor. She had been in that state for over eight hours.
They had reached the hospital at 8 PM on June 23, and at 5 AM on June 24, she had a discussion with her doctor, Dr. Thais Aliabadi, about the C-section. They realized that the baby's heartbeat was dropping with every contraction she had.

Dr. Aliabadi said she would give it her last shot to get the baby out, something she succeeded in.
After the delivery, Ghalichi and Mir named their son going with an idea her friend, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, gave them when they had their first child, daughter Alara. She had suggested they call the kid Kash if they had a son, and that way, he could be 'Kashmir.'

The first time, they had a girl. But this time, they went with Kash as they had a son. Mir came up with Kashton, and that became his name.
Lilly Ghalichi Went to the Delivery Room Glammed Up
In her IG stories, Ghalichi documented not only the delivery but the things she did before and after. One of the things she shared was how she got ready for her delivery and how nervous she was during the whole thing.
Right after the hospital called her to come in, she started getting ready for her stay there. The first thing she did was get her makeup done.

"They don't like glam at the hospital anymore," she said in one of her IG stories but got her amazing look, anyway. Her makeup artist was Ella Vardanyan, and her hair stylist was Brandon Palestino.
The couple also packed a lot of stuff into their car for their hospital stay.
After returning from the hospital with a healthy Kashton, she documented her postpartum routine in her stories. Ghalichi decided it was not a bad thing to be vulnerable and discussed her postpartum body and how she was taking care of her skin.
