A beauty queen has been stripped of her title for a ‘breach of contract’ after she revealed she was pregnant. Joyce Prado, 22, who won Miss Bolivia Universe last year, was dethroned after it emerged she was two months pregnant.
She confirmed rumours her and partner Rodrigo Giménez – a Paraguayan model – would be having a baby and getting married soon. She 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.’
Prado represented Bolivia at Miss Universe 2018 in Thailand but failed to make the semi finals. She became Miss Bolivia last year and won Miss Tourism Bolivia in 2015.
Promotions Gloria, the modelling agency which has produced Miss Bolivia since 1985, is known for mixing beauty with politics. It said in 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.’
