Being a mom isn't always pretty. Just ask Jenna Jameson, who recently snapped herself breastfeeding her daughter in the shower. The former porn star shared the candid moment on Instagram to inspire her parent followers while continuing her crusade to normalize the feeding experience between mother and child.
"This is motherhood. It’s not always shiny and perfect like so many Instagrammers make us believe," she wrote alongside the pic. "There are days you question your strength and abilities. But then there are HARD days like today that prove your uncompromising power. I haven’t slept for two days and poor Batelli has been vomiting every 40 min like clockwork. We are in this together. So here’s to all of you selfless mamas out there, you make this world go round."
Jenna, 43, is a mom to 11-month-old daughter Batel Lou with fiancé Lior Bitton and has 8-year-old twins Jesse and Journey with ex Tito Ortiz. Since her daughter's birth, she has been using the social media platform to encourage nursing moms. "I’d like to say to all the moms out there that I talk to every day and give nursing tips how much it means to me that you trust my advice,” she captioned a selfie celebrating eight months of breastfeeding.
The famous beauty, who is best known for her work in the adult entertainment industry, has been very open about giving up porn to focus on her family. "I really don’t think I need to say, ‘Mommy was a porn star.’ I feel like they’re going to know me and think, Mommy loved us so much that she quit everything and made us her job," she told W magazine.
And in 2006 she sold her porn empire to Playboy for $30 million to make it happen. "Here I’m not ‘Jenna Jameson’; I’m just one of the moms who walk a double stroller every day,” she added. "I’m a normal girl with all the same worries and insecurities. I just happen to have done porn."
