Australian blogger Jessica Stein A.K.A Tuula Vintage has welcomed her very first child with her partner.
The gorgeous boho blogger shared a stunning image of her new family, sharing insight to the struggle they have faced in the twelve weeks since their daughter was born.
"We have been pinching ourselves all day, every day for the past twelve weeks since our beautiful daughter arrived. I always knew it wouldn't be easy for me to become a mother, but I never thought these first precious months would be so hard for her. We're still living in hospital a few hours from home and taking each day as it comes, learning from and loving every moment with her.
"We are hoping to be back home in the coming weeks to settle in and enjoy our new chapter together. Until then, I wanted to thank everyone for your well wishes and patience. When I get a moment or need for distraction from hospital life I will be posting some unpublished or favourite photos from old travels, until we're all happy and healthy enough for home, then travelling as a family.
"I would be lying if I didn't admit this is extremely tough, but so is she 💕💪"
Jessica suffered a difficult pregnancy, and was admitted to hospital at 24 weeks after being diagnosed with preterm premature rupture of membranes at 20 weeks.
The star has spoken in small detail about the horrifying crash that saw her traumatically injured as a teenager.
"I experienced multiple pelvic and internal injuries after being hit by a car at 16 with ongoing pain and limitations, and was warned of what might never come to be," she wrote in her initial pregnancy announcement at 7 months. " I’ve always wanted to adopt (as my incredible mum was) and my partner and I had been talking about it again just before this unexpected miracle happened."
Congrats to the happy family!
