Christina Anstead introduced baby Hudson London Anstead to the world on Sept. 6, and fans can't stop gushing over adorable family photos. However, the HGTV star’s latest post is being praised for more than having a picturesque family — fans are applauding Christina for showing the real side of motherhood.
While this is Christina's first child with husband Ant Anstead, this isn't their first rodeo: Christina is mom to nine-year-old daughter, Taylor, and four-year-old son, Brayden, whom she shares with her “Flip or Flop” co-star and former husband, Tarek El Moussa. Ant shares 16-year-old daughter Amelie and 13-year-old son Archie with his ex-wife Louise.
Since welcoming their son, the couple has shared some genuinely heartwarming photos, including one "perfectly captured candid moment" of Christina’s two eldest meeting their new baby brother for the first time, and another where the couple happily beams down at baby Hudson.
On Thursday, Christina shared an unfiltered image on her Instagram — one most moms can easily recognize.
The photo, captioned "#MOMLIFE", shows Christina holding baby Hudson in her arms, while coloring her hair in tin foil and leaking breast milk.
Thousands of fans were quick to applaud her multitasking skills and for showing the real side of motherhood, with plenty of moms commenting that they've "been there."
"Thanks for showing us 'real life' as a new mom and not posting fake pictures that celebs usual post that make the rest of us new moms feel like [s***]," one person wrote. "So refreshing!!!"
A fan shared: "Love this raw side of motherhood."
One mom commented: "Thanks for keeping it real! I’ve been there many times with four boys!"
Another mom wrote that it was the "most accurate thing on Instagram today."
