Mercedes Javid may have just shared photos from her breathtaking nude maternity shoot while she was pregnant with her son Shams Francis Feight, but in a recent Instagram video, the Shahs of Sunset beauty revealed some hard (and humorous) truths about trying to balance her glam and her new mom life.
On July 9, MJ posted a short, makeup-free vid where the LA-native detailed her postpartum reality — and how it’s affecting beauty routine. But mainly, MJ gave props to all the moms out there who are just trying to get through it all and her message is totally #teammom.
“Okay, so, I’m just checking in. These nails...I get a lot of compliments on them. They’re very old. Um, yes, this is spit up. I just burped my baby. The whole postpartum situation is very real. I don’t know if this is like mascara that I couldn’t get all the way off or just a lack of sleep or it's a combination thereof. I have a whole baby to think about that I haven’t even mentioned. We are just here to say shout out to all the moms out there. We are going to crush this motherhood situation and all the challenges that come with it together! I love my kid. I love you guys. Let’s do this.”
The realtor captioned her vid “#MomLife” and we’re sure a number of new parents have never felt more seen.
