‘I Couldn’t Be Bothered About My Looks Right Now’ – SA’s Lexi Van Opens Up About Motherhood


Lexi Van has opened up about how motherhood has changed her life for the better!

Lexi recently gave birth to a baby boy and has admitted that she is absolutely obsessed with her bundle of joy.

Taking to Instagram, Lexi shared a “Then and Now” snap, comparing herself before and after becoming a mother.

Lexi said that before becoming a mother leaving the house was as simple as grabbing her cellphone and her keys, but that has changed since giving birth.

“NOW: “Babe, do you have his bag? Are there enough diapers, wipes and extra clothes” “sanitizers, extra blankets,” she wrote.

Lexi admitted that she still cannot believe that she’s a mom and is currently not bothered by her looks right now.

“I’m a mess, I smell like a diary room, my hair’s crazy, my skin is horrible, I can’t lotion my legs, some days I forget to apply deodorant, I eat whilst breastfeeding, I dream about having that first cocktail again, I miss cuddling with my love, the list is endless… BUT now, my days are for the little man.”

Lexi gave a special shoutout to the moms who are “keeping it real and messy”.

“Shout out to all the moms who makes motherhood look glamorous but a bigger shout out to all the moms who are just keeping it real and messy.”

I used just grab my cellphone and car keys and out i go… ———————————————————————————– NOW: "Babe, do you have his bag?" "Are there enough diapers, wipes and extra clothes" "sanitizers, extra blankets…" ———————————————————————————- I still can't believe i get to call myself a mom. I'm in the early stages and to be honest, I couldn't be bothered about my looks right now. I'm a mess, i smell like a diary room, my hair's crazy, my skin is horrible, i can't lotion my legs, some days i forget to apply deodorant, i eat whilst breastfeeding, i dream about having that first cocktail again, i miss cuddling with my love, the list is endless… BUT now, my days are for the little man. I'm super good at multitasking, but now i forget to do most things too. New moms, trust me you'll mess up most days and feel like you aren't getting it right, but it gets better. Dont beat yourself up, take your time, cry and then get going again. Trust me. Shout out to all the moms who makes motherhood look glamorous but a bigger shout out to all the moms who are just keeping it real and messy 😉💖
