We’ve all been there. You’re having a lovely conversation with the mailman about your petunias when suddenly he can’t meet your eyes and scurries away. You think nothing of it until you get back inside, pass a mirror, and much to your horror … you’ve leaked through your shirt.
It’s par for the course when you decide to, you know, create life with your body. Motherhood is messy and sometimes we leak. And even though we know it happens to
all most moms, we still don’t expect it from our picture-perfect celebrities. (Can you imagine Angelina Jolie running down the aisles of Target, peeing herself a little as she goes? No. No you can’t.)
But today, Jennifer Love Hewitt is proving that celebrities really are just like us (at least in the ways they can’t control).
Venturing out to her first business meeting after giving birth to son Atticus James in June, the 36-year-old Criminal Minds actress found herself in a compromising position — with a stained silk jumpsuit. Thankfully, Hewitt had a sense of humor about it and took the opportunity to post about it on Instagram and Twitter.
As Hewitt explained to her 941,000 Twitter followers:
Lactated through silk jumpsuit mid meeting. Had to buy scarf for dignified exit. #hotelgiftshop #mommylife
Her tweet quickly went viral, with moms everywhere tweeting their support and thanking her for showing the “real” side of parenting:
Agreed. JLH, way to never let a leaky boob get you down.More On
