Big Brother Africa star , Lexi Van and her long term boyfriend, Mandla Hlatshwayo, welcomed their first bundle of joy few days ago and it’s been so exciting for the lovers.

Despite not showing off the face of the baby boy, Lexi has shared in a lengthy note how motherhood feels to her, compared to when she was all hot and sexy.

“How life has changed?! THEN: sexy, fiesty, crazy, outgoing… no worry or care in the world. 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…”She said.

“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.” The star added.

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 πŸ˜‰πŸ’–

But one can’t helo but to, obviously, notice the physical changes. Moms, be ready to be emotionally strong to accept the hectic changes that comes with motherhood πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯ It’s going to take a while for me to get back to my flat tummy and fitness routine… today I’m just feeling really emotional, everything affects me, and it catches me off guard but for now, I’ll try and enjoy every second with my boy πŸ’™ Sending lots of love and light to all mommies. Share your journey and don’t suffer in silence with your insecurities. It’s OK to not be OK πŸ’– Happy Monday…
