She rocked the boat with Miss Universe, and soon she’ll be rocking something else — a baby.
Bolivian beauty Joyce Prado represented her country at the 2018 Miss Universe pageant, after taking home the title of Miss Bolivia that same year. However, she was stripped of her crown — as well as her Miss Santa Cruz title — late last week, for “breach of contract,” pageant organizers announced on Facebook.
Promociones Gloria, a modeling agency that also organizes the Miss Santa Cruz and Miss Bolivia pageants, posted that the beauty queen had been dismissed for confidential reasons. But just two days later, on Sunday, the 22-year-old model made her own social media announcement via Instagram.
“I want to share with you that I am the happiest woman in the world because my life is full of love,” the catwalk queen wrote in her native Spanish, under a joyful photo of her and model boyfriend Rodrigo Giménez holding up an infant onesie. “Since I knew that I will become a mother, I cannot stop imagining how I will look with my baby in my arms.”
The media was quick to connect Prado’s pregnancy with the shocking news about her titles.
Miss Universe rules clearly state that pageant contestants cannot be married or pregnant: “They must not have ever been married, not had a marriage annulled nor given birth to, or parented a child,” it says on the organization’s website. Plus, “titleholders are also required to remain unmarried throughout their reign.”
Representatives for Miss Universe declined to comment on the record.
