OK Exclusive: Ali Fedotowsky Confesses She ‘Lost It’ After Trying To Do It All As A New Mom
Former Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky-Manno is not only the proud mommy of a one-year-old girl, but also a wife, a blogger, a TV host, and spokesperson. She does it all! However, in an exclusive interview with OK!, the first-time mom confessed that managing it all hasn’t always been easy.
“I did a real bad job juggling it for a while. However, when Molly hit eight months I hit a bit of breaking point, where I kind of lost it,” she recalled.
“I remember my husband Kevin came home from work, and Molly our daughter was crying and I was crying and I was like ‘I can’t do this anymore,’ because she had never had a babysitter, up until that point,” she said.
“So Kevin was like, ‘Ali, we have to get a nanny. We have to get someone that can help you.’ Up until she was eight months, Kevin and I had never left her with anybody and we had never been on a date night,” Ali revealed. “So we had never spent any time together, so at that point we finally found someone that we trust, to care for her… once or twice a week in the morning for a few hours so I can get a little break to work or go to the coffee shop.”
