Bolivian Miss Universe is Pregnant but Possibly No Longer Miss Universe?

by | April 19, 2019

Many young women dream about what it would be like to become Miss Universe. The glitz and the glamour seem appealing to many but there are many duties beyond just showing up to events and looking pretty. With this huge responsibility, there comes a set of rules that are to be followed by the women who take these titles. One of the clauses? That you are not to be either pregnant or married during your time as Miss Universe. Unfortunately, for the Bolivian Miss Universe, her pregnancy didn’t come as the best news to the higher up in charge.

Bolivian Miss Universe is Pregnant but Possibly No Longer Miss Universe?

This heartwarming pregnancy announcement didn’t come as necessarily the best news, however, to her modeling agency. Initially, many thought she would be dismissed from both the title of Miss Bolivia Universe as well as her title as Miss Santa Cruz due to rules posted on the Miss Universe website which prohibits winners from getting pregnant or getting married during their time holding a position as it may interfere with any upcoming duties.

Despite this, it was revealed by news outlet INSIDER, who had gotten into contact with Prado, that “it was agreed between” both momma-to-be and her agency that she could stay with the modeling agency she works under but she would be forcing completely on her pregnancy and not carrying out any of her Miss Bolivia duties she would have had to take part in otherwise.

For now, we wish Joyce Prado, the Bolivian Miss Universe, the very best with her pregnancy and hopefully, the rules against pregnancy during their “reign” become more lenient in the future.

How do you feel about the beauty pageant rules that prevent women from being married or pregnant during their time served? Fair or unfair? Let me know in the comments below.
