You hear a lot of beautiful things regarding pregnancy — like the glow, the first time you feel your baby kick and finding the absolute most perfect creative baby name. While a lot of this is true, a whole lot of other weird stuff goes down during those nine months that people warn you about, but you could never prepare yourself for — like growing hair in, uh, strange places. Ooh, and how about that lovely feeling called morning sickness, which Kim Kardashian recently caught heat for taking medication to treat. Sometimes, when you’re ready to vomit for the umpteenth time that day, the last thing you want to hear about is how beautiful pregnancy is.
Which is why it’s so freakin’ nice to see model/celeb/acknowledged beautiful person Brooklyn Decker keeping it real about her pregnancy on social media.
The wife of tennis star Andy Roddick is expecting her first and she posted this hilarious video of herself trying to assemble a baby seat with the caption: “Pregnancy has turned me into a crazy person. ‘The baby’s supposed to go in there… How can there be a fall hazard?!'” Her adorably befuddled husband asks her, “Brook, why are you crying?”
Yeah, we feel you. One commenter wrote, “I’m only laughing because this is real life. And then you actually have a human baby to take care of along with your crazy self. From one crazy pregnant lady to another.”
The Grace and Frankie star recently also posted this makeup-free selfie, writing, “Pregnancy hormones are effin’ awesome. #acne #hairyface.” Girlfriend is definitely not trying to make it seem like pregnancy is a total breeze — because frankly, making a baby is hard work.
And let’s be honest, staying in shape during pregnancy when you’re exhausted and hormonal takes extra effort. You gotta get your laughs in where you can. Brooklyn is a natural comedian, captioning this video: “Inappropriate Pregnancy Work Outs: Part One.”
And when your feet are swollen, you just DGAF. Brooklyn captioned this one: “This, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call “giving up.” #nofilter #whywouldifilterthis.”
We’re lucky to have you, Brooklyn Decker.
