Most people would agree that having a baby is a blessing. So, having two babies — twins — would be twice the blessing, right? Maybe so, but Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott very honestly admits that, as much as she is in love with her 2-week-old twin daughters, she’s just plain, old exhausted.
Hillary recently shared a photo on her Instagram page, but not of twins Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn. This one is of her. And while she isn’t red carpet glam, she is still girl-next-door gorgeous. It’s apparent from the caption that she might not think so, though … if she could actually think.
She writes, “Am I laughing? Am I crying? Am I asleep? Am I awake? Have I eaten? Have I showered? Have I brushed my teeth or shaved my legs? Are those still Christmas pillows? I don’t think I know the answers to any of these questions, but y’all my heart is FULL and this is me, #twoweekspostpartum captured in a photo today. ❤”
It’s a beautiful you, Hills!
Fortunately, it looks like the happy, but admittedly tired mom is getting a helping hand. And although it’s a little hand, it’s obviously attached to a big heart.
In another photo from Hillary, we can see 4 1/2-year-old big sister Eisele gently caressing one of the twins’ heads. And it’s almost as if you can hear her singing a lullaby to the alert little beauty.
Is it Betsy or is it Emory? We aren’t sure about which twin it is, but we’re pretty sure it’s beyond precious.
Hillary, husband Chris Terrell and Eisele welcomed their twin girls into the family on Jan. 29.
From our approximation, next up in labor and delivery could be Chris and Morgane Stapleton who are, coincidentally, welcoming twins as well. We don’t have genders for their two little ones yet, or an exact due date, so we may be off on when they’re due to arrive, but we’re pretty excited about having another set of doubles in the country music family.
We’re also excited to meet Jessie James Decker and Eric Decker’s next baby, a little boy that is scheduled for a March arrival. However, in her last bumpdate (bump update … get it?), Jessie said that even though she is only 33 weeks along, she could go anytime because her babies grow so much after week 36.
While we’re all about celebrating babies, we also honor all of these moms and moms-to-be, as well as all of our amazing readers who are expecting or already have little ones, even if they’re already grown. Momming has to be the hardest job ever, and we applaud y’all for the humans that you grew!
