The 22-year-old actress who won the award last year was dethroned by the organizers after it became clear she was pregnant during the competition in the second month.
She confirmed that her partner, the Paraguayan model Rodrigo Hymen, would become parents and soon be married.
She told local media:
"Yes, we will have a baby and we have the support of our families who are very happy, I love Rodrigo and this news comes even closer to us. We do not yet have a date for the wedding, but we hope it will be soon.
Prado presented Bolivia to the Miss Universe in 2018 in Thailand, but gave up the semifinal. She became Miss Bolivia last year and won Miss Tourism Bolivia in 2015.
Promotions Gloria Agency, which owns the rights to Miss Bolivia in 1985, said in its statement:
"The reasons (for the Prado dethronement) are entirely related to the conditions of competition."
