Jillian Harris is sharing her "ultimate confidence booster."

The 42-year-old "Love It or List It Vancouver" host recently took to Instagram to share a video of what she looks like running on just one hour of sleep, trying out a beauty filter. At the end of the clip, her five-year-old son, Leo, chimes in with a heartwarming comment that gave her a confidence boost that was better than any filter.

"After only getting about an hour of sleep last night, up with little Leo, and tummy troubles, my brain couldn’t handle another email so I started scrolling Instagram," she penned to her more than 1 million followers.

"I found this filter and decided to give it a shot just for fun. When I went from 'real' to filtered, I thought to myself, 'Wow, I look so tired,' but then I realized Leo had been watching," Harris explained. "His comment at the end melted my heart."

"Real-life wrinkles and mom exhaustion," she wrote on the video. "The ultimate confidence booster after realizing the Internet is not real whatsoever... Wait 'til the end."

"I love you, mom," her son can be heard saying in the background.

Harris and her partner Justin Pasutto, share Leo as well as a two-year-old daughter, Annie.

Haris's post was quickly flooded with warm comments about her son's "adorable" and candid comment.

"That is so adorable," one Instagram user wrote, while someone else added, "The best moments ever. They are what makes everything worth it."

Another fan praised the Canadian TV presenter for her authenticity.

"I wish more people on the gram were as real and as authentic as you Jilly! When I watch your page I feel good about myself, I feel validated, you are So relatable, [and] down to earth," they wrote.

"Leo swoops in pulling on the heartstrings!" another person commented.

One fan pointed out: "So sweet, makes it worth every wrinkle doesn’t it?"

"Thank you for reminding us that social media is not reality," added another. "I’ve been freaking out lately about looking younger because it seems no one else is aging. Thank you for your authenticity!"

Leo has always been his mom's number one fan. Back in 2020, Harris recalled that ever since he was a baby, he's had his eyes on mom.

“My favourite mom moments are when he looks at me. Talk about [melting] my heart! He’s already a total mama’s boy," she told People.
