For getting pregnant against agreement, Miss Bolivia Universe has been stripped of her title.
Joyce Prado who won Miss Bolivia Universe in 2018, was dethroned after it was discovered she was two months pregnant – a ‘breach of contract’.
After months of speculations and rumors, the 22-year-old beauty queen confirmed that she is pregnant for her boyfriend, Rodrigo Giménez – a Paraguayan model, and that they will be getting married soon.
Joyce, who won Miss Bolivia Universe in 2018 and Miss Tourism Bolivia in 2015 told local media:
‘Yes, we are going to have a baby, we have the support of our families, we are both happy, I love Rodrigo and this news has brought us closer together.
‘We do not have a wedding date, but hopefully, it will be soon, we will take it easy we have the support of our families.’
Promotions Gloria, the modelling agency which has produced Miss Bolivia since 1985 released a statement:
‘The reasons [for Prado being stripped of her title] are strictly related to the breach of contract, leaving on record that we maintain cordial relations in a field of mutual understanding, safeguarding the confidentiality clause.’
Not bothered by the news, Joyce posted a photo of herself and her boyfriend holding a baby clothe she purchased for her son.
She wrote: ‘The miracle of life is indescribable, especially when it comes to the arrival of a new member of the family.
‘Becoming a father or mother may be the most important challenge that comes our way in life, but just as it can be difficult, it can also be the most rewarding thing in the world.
‘I want to share with you that I am the happiest woman in the world because my life is full of love, because together with the man of my dreams we are beginning to live the most beautiful stage of our lives.
‘Since I knew that I will become a mother, I can not stop imagining how I will look with my baby in my arms, never imagine feeling such a great emotion just knowing that from within me there is a seed that grows every day and the only thing that I ask God to be born safe and sound that his daddy@rodrigodanielpy and I will take care of protecting him and training him all the love we have to give him.’
