El milagro de la vida es indescriptible, más aún cuando se trata de la llegada de un nuevo integrante a la familia. Llegar a convertirse en Padre o Madre puede ser el desafío más importante que se nos presente en la vida, pero así como puede ser difícil, también puede llegar a ser lo más gratificante del mundo. Yo quiero compartir con ustedes que soy la mujer más feliz del mundo porque mi vida está llena de amor , por que junto al hombre de mis sueños estamos empezando a vivir la etapa más bonita de nuestras vidas : SER PAPÁS; Desde que supe que me convertiré en madre no dejo de imaginarme cómo se me verá con mi bebé en brazos , nunca imagine sentir una emoción tan grande de solo saber que de dentro de mi hay una semilla que crece día a día y lo único que le pido a Dios es que nazca sano y salvo que su papito @rodrigodanielpy y yo nos encargaremos de protegerlo y de entrenarle todo el amor que tenemos para darle ?? #happy #love #mam #baby #pregnancy #dulceespera #futuramama #mamafeliz

"I want to share with you that I am the happiest woman in the world because my life is full of love, because together with the man of my dreams we are beginning to live the most beautiful stage of our lives," she said in her language. 

After she announced her pregnancy, Promociones Gloria, organizer of the Miss Santa Cruz and Miss Bolivia pageants, announced on their Facebook page that the 22-year-old model would be stripped off her crowns due to breach of contract.  

“Promociones Gloria communicates to the public opinion that the current miss Santa Cruz and miss Bolivia Universe 2018, has been removed from her crowns as miss Santa Cruz and miss Bolivia for reasons that are strictly related to contractual breach, leaving constancy that we maintain cordial relationships In an area of mutual understanding, guarding the confidentiality clause,” the organizer posted on their page translated into English. 

Joyce competed at the 2018 Miss Universe pageant, where Catriona Gray of the Philippines was declared the winner.
