Mother-son moment! Paola Mayfield breast-fed her 1-month-old baby boy in a new pic, and the 90 Day Fiancé star wasn’t here for the haters.
“My mornings,” the reality star, 31, captioned the Monday, February 4, Instagram post. “Axel and Mommy bonding. #dontlikeitdontlook.” In the close-up pic, the new mom looked down at her son as he fed.
Paola and her husband, Russ Mayfield, welcomed their son on January 1..
“What an amazing way to start the new year, while I was hearing the fireworks and people telling me ‘happy new year,’ I was just focused on meeting my baby boy,” the Colombia native wrote at the time. “Our little miracle is so beautiful and calm. I feel so blessed and I can’t believe I am a mom now! I’m ready to start this new adventure and to be the best mom for baby Axel.”
She added: “I’m so proud of my husband, he was there for me the entire time, I couldn’t have done it without you @russ_mayfield. The joy I feel is indescribable, I’ve never felt so happy in my life. Axel has become my whole world and I’m so in love with him.”
Since her baby boy’s arrival, Paola hasn’t been afraid to share her new motherhood moments with her followers — both the good and the bad. Not only has she posted multiple post-baby body pictures in the last couple of months, but the TLC personality has also opened up about postpartum depression.
“I’ve been having a tough week, I’m not going to lie,” she admitted on Instagram on January 19. “I think I’m experiencing the baby blues after giving birth. My only motivation is seeing my baby growing strong and healthy. I normally don’t like to open up this much on social media but at the same time it’s good to open up and talk about it knowing this will pass soon!”
The reality star and her husband, 31, appeared on season 1 of TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé.
