MOM-SHAMERS

Arnold dished on her mommy-and-me dress collection, which launches on April 29. She also shared how she deals with the pressures of motherhood as a mom to daughter, Sage Jill.

The “Dancing with The Stars” alum shared she had been exclusively breastfeeding up until her baby girl was four-and-a-half months old, but she later learned that Sage would still cry because she was hungry.

Arnold shared that she has a nice, awesome, growing baby girl who eats a lot. She revealed she has been supplementing with the formula while adding it has worked for them and that her child is happy.

BREASTFEEDING EXPERIENCE

In January, she got candid about her breastfeeding experience and said no one prepared her for nipple pain while doing so. Arnold shared her struggles and revealed:

“Like no one prepares you for that. They’re like, ‘Get the cream. You’ll be fine.’ The ointments didn’t help. I just had to tough it out.”

CRITICISM FROM FANS

On April 13, Arnold showed off her C-section scar in a photo wearing a bikini. She captioned the Instagram post while addressing the speculations that she was photoshopping her scar from her pictures.

In the post, Arnold emphasized that she does not usually entertain such comments but would now respond because it is important. The Utah native shared the scar is a favorite part of her body because it represents something she is proud of, her child Sage.

DANCING WITH THE STARS

The choreographer also recently opened up about possibly returning to “DWTS” after giving birth to her daughter. She took a season off to have her baby.

With great enthusiasm, Arnold revealed she is definitely planning on making a return to the dancing competition. She added she is ready and feels good and excited while revealing she wants to dance again.

Arnold highlighted that even though she would love to be back on the show, it is up to the producers to decide if they want her back or not. Pro dancers are never guaranteed a spot on the show. If she makes it back, she disclosed she would dedicate her performances to her little girl.
