90 Day Fiance fan favorite Loren Brovarnik isn’t sugar-coating postpartum care.
As Monsters and Critics reported, Loren gave birth to her and Alexei Brovarnik’s third child, a daughter they’ve named Ariel Raya Brovarnik.
The same day that Loren announced Ariel’s birth on Instagram, she took to the social media platform once more, this time to shed some light on the “reality of just having a baby.”
The 34-year-old TLC star posed in a vulnerable photo, showing herself wearing a Velcro belly band and sporting an adult diaper, both common practices for women after giving birth.
Loren posed from inside her hospital room as she gave a double thumbs-up to the camera. She wore her hair in a messy bun and went makeup-free for the shot, looking incredible for just having given birth less than 24 hours prior.
Loren’s hospital bracelets were visible in the shot and she lifted up her gown to show that she was rocking a belly band and diaper while giving a close-mouthed smile to the camera.
