If you've been watching Bravo's Shahs of Sunset since it first began in 2012, then you've seen each of the cast members go through their fair share of heartbreaks, breakups, and relationship woes. For cast member Mike Shouhed, he's perhaps been through the most when it comes to his romantic life.

On Season 1, he flirted with a romance with longtime friend and co-star Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi. In 2015's Season 5, he wed Jessica Parido, but the two split after only eight months of marriage.

During a Season 7 episode, he got dumped on-air by his girlfriend, Morgan.

Though he's been the butt of jokes about his struggles to find long lasting love, Mike claimed to have found the love of his life in Season 8. His romance with single mom Paulina Ben-Cohen was a main storyline on the show, but an iCloud mix-up threatened to derail their bond in Season 9.

Are Mike and Paulina still together from 'Shahs of Sunset'?

When Mike introduced his friends to Paulina on the debut episode of Season 8, it was a shock for fans. After all, Mike had not posted about Paulina on any of his social media accounts at all leading up to the Season 8 premiere.

He shared that he initially bonded with Paulina because they had such similar backgrounds. Mike noted that Paulina is the first Persian woman that he has dated, and that they also connected over Judaism.

Though Paulina is 12 years younger than Mike, their age gap hasn't been an issue.

On the show, Mike discussed how he had bonded with Paulina's two kids from a past marriage. He insisted that he was ready for a commitment to Paulina, and that he wanted to be a stepfather to her children.

"My life has completely changed from a year ago. I'm 40. I don't want to be single. I want to have a family," Mike said on a Season 8 episode. "And I found the person that's going to give me all the things I want in life."

Paulina and Mike remained together after Season 8, but they faced turmoil in their relationship in the Season 9 premiere.

Mike, who has had issues with monogamy in the past, said that the iCloud on his cell phone had been hacked, and that someone sent sexually explicit texts to another woman from his account.

While Paulina and the other Shahs of Sunset stars were skeptical about Mike's side of the story, it hasn't caused a rift between the two (yet).

Their relationship may not be in a good place at the beginning of Season 9, but the two have stayed together since filming concluded. Mike has continued to post photos with his longtime love on Instagram.

Longtime Shahs of Sunset fans may also be interested in the latest updates regarding Mike's ex-wife.

Mike Shouhed's ex wife, Jessica Parido, has also moved on.

While Mike is clearly happy in his relationship with Paulina, his ex-wife has also gone forward in her life. The two officially split in 2015 after a tumultuous and brief marriage, and their divorce was finalized in 2017. 

In April of 2019, Jessica shocked her Instagram followers when she revealed that she had given birth to a son two months earlier. The former reality star had not posted pregnancy photos or any other indication that she was pregnant.

As viewers of Shahs of Sunset will remember, Jessica was unsure if she'd be able to have kids because she had battled leukemia when she was a teenager. 

She never confirmed who the father of her baby was, but she did note in her caption that "the vision of love, marriage, then baby" is "gone."

Though Mike and Jessica were not able to make their relationship work, the two have clearly gotten the happiness they were searching for.

Shahs of Sunset airs on Sundays at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
