Amanda and her fiance, Ken, already had one daughter together. But a month ago, the couple welcomed little Pierson into the world.
And the newborm has already become a celebrity online—thanks to a selfie his dad, Ken, took with him. It shows the uncensored truth about motherhood.
“This is motherhood; it’s raw, stunning, messy, and freaking hilarious all rolled into one,” mom, Amanda, wrote in a Facebook post that accompanies the picture. The post has received more than 500,000 likes and and 125,000 shares in the week since she posted it.
I’m sharing this picture because it’s real. This is motherhood; it’s raw, stunning, messy, and freaking hilarious all rolled into one. Having a baby is a beautiful experience, and the realities of postpartum life aren’t spoken enough about. And definitely not photographed enough. Some people probably find this uncomfortable, but why? I seriously don’t get it! It’s probably because this part isn’t talked about. We all should try and educate, empower and embrace every aspect of childbirth, including moments like this. And do it while having a sense of humor. Nothing says welcome to motherhood like an adorable squishy baby, and a giant mom diaper.
Edit. I posted this picture. Not my husband.”
Becoming a mother is one of life’s proudest moments. There’s nothing more beautiful! Please share if you agree!
