Fully embracing your own idiosyncrasies can be a joyful part of new motherhood.
Just ask Hilary Duff who is using a serious dose of good humour to keep it all in perspective!
The Hollywood actress who recently gave birth to daughter, Banks, hasn’t held back on how tough the job can be sometimes.
“The boobs are big the belly is big the body is big,” she wrote on Instagram in July.
“Man… pregnancy is hard. Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special.”

As Hilary’s baby continues to grow, she’s documented the challenges – with a fabulous dose of humour.
Like this photo recently posted to Instagram where she’s pictured wearing a shower cap, an open blouse, heating pad slung around her shoulders and the look of exhaustion, captioning the cheeky post:
“Am I doing this right?”
It was a dig at fellow actress and mum, Rachel McAdams’ sizzling photoshoot for Girls. Girls. Girls magazine! Where she wore two breast pumps, a Versace outfit, diamond-encrusted necklace and a fierce “I’ve got this” expression.
Such. A. Great. Shot.
But as Hilary can attest, some days with a newborn are far, far less glamorous than others.
We’re with you, Hilary!
Here’s a virtual high five for the hard job you’re doing so well!
