In the black-and-white shot, captioned "Blessings," the first-time mom holds Ava who smiles adoringly back at her. George Clooney's ex welcomed Ava, her first child, this past August with her husband Jared Pobre.
Along with sharing the photo, the former WWE wrestler wrote on her blog: "Life can be unpredictable. You feel one way, and then…boom! You need to entirely change your perspective. That is certainly what happened to me this past year. Until I started dating Jared, the idea of being married and having a family was never on my radar. I was just hoping that the right love would find me."
Keibler, who secretly wed Pobre in March 2014, continued: "But after a serendipitous reconnection with Jared, a friend who turned out to be my soulmate, we created a family together almost instantly. Talk about a serious change in my reality! This year and the holiday season especially has me feeling so nostalgic about family — my family, my new family, and of course, the newest addition to our family. Ava has graced us with such joy, such light and such love–we never saw it coming. She is our special little lady, and I couldn’t be more thankful for how she has opened my heart."
