Yesterday, Audrey warmed the hearts of her 1.2 million followers with a touching photo of big sister Ember meeting baby Bode for the first time.

The lovely image showed Audrey on cloud nine while on the hospital bed with her two babies getting to know each other better. 

The mother-of-two described the image as “one of my favorite moments ever," and gushed about how the two-year-old is “the sweetest big sister already.” 

Speaking about how her babies are bonding, Audrey wrote:

“Jer and I can’t stop smiling and laughing at the things she says about him and to him. She’s so eager to take care of him and give him lots of lovies.”

However, in the midst of all her praises, Daily Mail notes that the 28-year-old shared a harsh revelation about her post-pregnancy life.

Audrey confessed:

“Postpartum has been hard on my body, but cuddling with these precious little loves makes my heart so full.”

Just keepin it real over here 👋🏻 while this past week has been full of newborn snuggles and heart melting moments... it’s also been really hard. With Ember and Bode I had really great pregnancies and labor/delivery experiences (will share Bode’s birth story on the podcast @behindthescenespodcast soon😍) but once that 4th trimester hits😅 my body just gets hit hard with all the things... Thankfully this time I could draw from past experience and fought off getting mastitis 5 days postpartum like last time🙈 Still... my milk comes in fast and furious, both my babies chomped my nipples to shreds on day one, and my milk is the brevé kind🤣 so engorgement is at least 5x my normal bra size... Thankfully, Mr. 9 pounder Bode boy is a much more efficient eater than Ember girl was (he was already back at his birth weight by 5 days old!) Along with the booby pains... there’s the stitches and other pains “down there”, the body aches/light headedness (I hemmoraged pretty bad this time) the pelvic bones that feel broken, the postpartum contractions (so much worse with second baby😆) sore muscles from labor, etc. I share all this because I don’t think enough people share about their postpartum journey. We are so excited to share birth stories and document our whole pregnancies but then postpartum hits and nothing... I wish someone would have better prepared me the first time around or been more honest about all the after-birth pains. So here I am 👋🏻showing up with my 1 week postpartum belly exposed and telling you my body hurts. But despite the physical pains, I know these weeks of forced slow-down are exactly what my body and heart needs. REST. So if you’re in this season of life too, give yourself permission to rest and heal. I’m letting go of the pressure to rush back into working out, my social life, household chores, my pre-pregnancy clothes, or any kind of commitment that conflicts with recovery and rest. Something that’s very hard for us enneagram 8’s to adhere too 🤪 I have to remind myself every day that rest is one of the most productive things I can do right now🙏🏻 So I’ll be here with a baby on my chest, in milk stained pj’s, embracing JOMO (the joy of missing out)✌🏻

Baby Bode was born to Audrey and Jeremy Roloff on January 8, and the little bundle of joy weighed in at nine pounds and two ounces and measured 21 inches long.  

During an interview with US Weekly, the couple revealed that they have always wanted a big family. However, they weren’t putting any pressure on each other to achieve their dream.

Audrey and Jeremy first announced that they were expecting in July. A month later, they revealed that the unborn child was going to be a boy. Luckily, Bode arrived on his actual due date, unlike his older sister, Ember, who was eleven days late.

Soap Dirt notes that two days after Bode was born, the new parents took their son home to meet the rest of the family. 

The little bundle of joy is no doubt the perfect addition to the Roloff family, and everyone, including grandmother Amy Roloff, is over the moon about his arrival.

According to PopCulture, Amy celebrated her grandson’s birth by debuting their first photo together on social media.

The matriarch of the Roloff clan shared a series of images showing her cuddling baby Bode and gushed in the caption about how she loved being a grandmother again.
