Former Vanderpump Rules star Brittany Cartwright is enjoying her new venture into parenthood and is embracing all of the changes she’s faced in recent months.
By now, fans are aware that Brittany and her husband, Jax Taylor, won’t be returning to Vanderpump Rules for Season 9. And while the moment is bittersweet, Brittany still has plenty to be thankful for and recently she revealed that she’s beginning to feel more like her old self again.
Brittany has been transparent about the difficulties she faced throughout her pregnancy. From persistent morning sickness to battling online trolls, the journey to parenthood wasn’t a smooth road.
But according to Brittany, their son, Cruz, makes it all worthwhile.
Brittany says Jax is a great dad
During a recent Q&A over on Instagram, Brittany revealed that she and Jax are loving being parents to baby Cruz , and she loves watching them together.
A fan asked, “Does setting Jax as a father make you love him more?”
Brittany replied that not only does she love him more, but Jax is also a great and hands-on dad.
“He helps me out so much,” she said. “He changes diapers. He does everything. He plays with him non-stop.”
She continued to say that they both love Cruz so much and “seeing them together” makes her love him that much more.
Brittany gives an update on her confidence
It comes as no surprise that Brittany has struggled with her self confidence recently thanks, in part, to the relentless criticism she received throughout her pregnancy.
Brittany drew heavy judgment due to her weight gain during pregnancy. And while she did her best to rise above the haters, they certainly took their toll.
Thankfully, Brittany has come out the other side and says she is feeling more like herself. She was also recently given the green light from her doctor to begin working out again.
When a fan inquired about how the workouts have been going, Brittany seemed to be in great spirits and shared that she’s currently working on getting her “strength and endurance” back.
“I had to stop working out whenever I was about, like, seven months pregnant because I was just so sick. So I really have to work on getting my strength back up,” she said.
But, Brittany also shared that her confidence is now on the rise, too.
“How are you doing with confidence? You look glowing,” the fan commented.
“I feel a lot better. I’m starting to feel more like myself, especially being able to work out and stuff again,” she admitted. “I was dealing with a lot of social media trolls about my weight gain and it really put me into this hole.”
The trolls may have been hard on Brittany, but she acknowledged that bringing Cruz into the world was worth it.
“But I feel amazing and Cruz is just the best thing ever,” she said.
Vanderpump Rules is currently on hiatus on Bravo.
