Amber Tamblyn gets real about her post-partum boobs on Instagram

Just a few weeks ago one of our beloved sisters from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Amber Tamblyn and husband David Cross shared news about their new daughter by posting a short video of her cute little feet on Amber’s Instagram. There’s a lot of change that comes with being a first-time mom, and Amber is giving us a fresh post-partum look into the realities of motherhood.

In a hilariously honest Instagram post, Amber talks about her post-baby boobs. She’s breastfeeding her daughter, and with that job there will inevitably be leakages here and there. Amber’s not shy about it, though — she wants people to see that celebrities go through the same messy things as every other mom on the planet.

“Who Wore It Better? Left tit or right tit? #MilkLife #StarsTheyreJustLikeUs!” Amber writes. We can’t help but giggle (which is Amber’s goal in posting this picture, no doubt). When it comes to the post-partum body, we see and read a lot of stuff in the media that makes us think all the famous moms have everything worked out perfectly. Amber wants you to know that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Her worn-in gray t-shirt is covered in stains from the breast milk, she’s makeup-free, and she’s wearing what looks to be sweatpants. There’s nothing glamorous about having break milk leak out from your tits, and that’s totally okay. Amber’s first priority is taking care of her baby, so there’s no need for dolling herself up before she gets on Insta.

Amber is the kind of celebrity and activist who we can always rely on for real talk about what it means to be a woman — and, now, what it means to be a mom. Keep it up, Amber! We can’t wait to see what amazing things your daughter does when she grows up.
