Shortly after the birth of her daughter Charli, Jessica spoke on the challenges of parenthood.

In the post’s description, Jessica added some depth about her experience thus far as a new mom. “From my labor to now, the beginning of motherhood has single-handedly been the most intense experience, pushing me to the brink of exhaustion.” Just wait until they start to drive, honey. Jessica added that being a mom is without a doubt the hardest thing she has ever been through.
She wrote, “Boy this just isn’t talked about enough lol I think people don’t want to talk about how hard it is in fear that people will think that that means there’s any regret or frustration towards the child.” I’m sorry, do I live under a rock? Who is out on these streets saying motherhood is a breeze? Literally no one. I think moms discussing the struggles involved with raising tiny human beings is pretty common content.
That said, Jessica assured her followers it is possible to acknowledge the challenging side of being a parent while also having an undying devotion for your little spawn. “It can be incredibly hard and you also show up and love your child and be incredibly grateful for their existence. It can be both hard & magical.” Jessica is most likely sleep-deprived, feeling isolated, and navigating hormonal changes that will rock your entire world.
