Paulina Ben-Cohen has two kids, and Mike Shouhed loves helping raise them

Before Paulina Ben-Cohen found love with Mike Shouhed, she was married to Iranian businessman Tal Bahari, according to TV Over Mind. They reportedly split due to "irreconcilable differences." Having been married before was something Paulina and Mike had in common, drawing them closer together when they started dating.

Paulina is also a mom to two kids, which has been a new experience for Mike. But he loves having her little ones in his life, tweeting in June 2020 that Paulina's two kids "are the highlight of my life n give purpose." Mike also told TooFab in February 2020 that he "wanted [Paulina] out of the spotlight because she's so focused on being the best mom possible." Paulina seems committed to keeping her kids away from the cameras, preferring casual beach days instead.

But for as much as Paulina keeps her kids out of the spotlight, there's one thing she's not shy about: her visits to the Newmedica Aesthetic Institute, from which she regularly shares Instagram photos. Paulina gets "touch-ups" and "preventative Botox," in her words, and she visits the institute for micro-needling procedures, too. Paulina is also vegan, per E!, and she stays in shape with high-intensity workouts. We can't wait to learn more about Paulina when Season 9 of "Shahs of Sunset" premieres!
