Amy, 32, cradled Daxton in her arms while he was sleeping. The new mom was dressed in pajamas and had her hair in a messy ponytail. “My hair is made up of 90% dry shampoo right now,” she started off on her Instagram Story. “I’m a little sleep deprived. I’m lounging. Just resting and letting my body heal.”

This isn’t the first time Amy’s talked about being authentic on social media. In August she opened up about experiencing skin discoloration on her face during pregnancy. “I wanted to show you my face without highlighter or bronzer or anything like that,” she told fans. “My skin right here my forehead has definitely discolored since I’ve been pregnant.”

Amy added, “I thought about what kind of insecurity that is for me and how I want to cover it up with foundation and act like everything’s fine. But I’m not going to because other women have probably experienced the same thing on their skin and can relate to it. I think it’s really cool that we use Instagram in a way that helps one another and just says ‘Hey, I’m human too.’”

She thanked fans for their support and prayers in another make-up free video on her Instagram. “He’s perfect and totally worth the pain, although C-sections are no joke. I’m resting a lot,” she said while holding her newborn.
