If you’re a parent, Gretchen Rossi’s recent Instagram post probably resonates. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum posted a make-up free photo of herself bottle feeding her beautiful baby girl… amid a major mess.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Posing alongside multiple nursing pillows, burp clothes, extra bottles, and a slew of other items, Gretchen wrote, “#MomLife with a New Baby ? ✅House is a mess ✅Exhausted from no sleep ✅Delirious ✅No Makeup ✅Hair in a bun ✅Sweatpants ✅Laundry is piling up ✅ Barely surviving ✅Can’t remember what day it is ✅Can barely remember my own name.”

We’re going to go ahead and file this under our "Real Housewives: They’re Just Like Us" category. We totally love and respect Gretchen’s full transparency here, because becoming a new mom is totally hard! Sleep deprivation makes keeping your house clean nearly impossible and the addition of another human living in that house — well, let’s just say babies come with a whole lot of stuff.

While she admits she might be barely surviving, Gretchen was also quick to add that despite the chaos, she’s so incredibly happy to be spending time with her baby in her beautiful home. “Who’s been here before, and who’s with me right now? ??‍♀️ However I wouldn’t change it for the world and am loving every second of it! Being right here in our beautiful home, loving on my baby girl and having my fur babies wrapped around us is what makes me the most happy and fulfilled these days! Thank you Lord for our many blessings ?? #enjoyingeverymoment #lovethesetimes.”

Say it with us: Awwwww!
