The 36-year-old opened up about her pregnancy difficulties while offering support to one of her Instagram followers. “I may never be able to have a baby (I’ve miscarried twice) but seeing this is beautiful and makes me cry happy tears," the follower said.

We try and spend daily time with Leafar outside in our front yard — especially now that he’s hit his first mental development leap at age 5 weeks.”
