In a recent Instagram Story, the star opened up about her first week as a parent, saying: "How do we feel???? Let me see… like having a hangover without the alcohol - little moments where @mariusiepure and I look at each other and laugh and ask 'How confused do you feel? At 3:34am'.

"Celebrating dirty diapers and cursing at Instagram moms who make this look easy. Pumping non-stop and still finding time to shower (I got 10 min today - felt like winning the lottery) all in all, having the best time and loving every milestone."
