She then said that although she’s been “struggling,” she has still been so “happy” and is very “grateful” for it.
“I’m so so happy and at the same time I’m struggling (weird to feel both simultaneously yet so grateful to have all the happiness to keep me afloat)," a-t-elle conclu.

“My hips still feel wonky from pushing out a human being," elle a écrit. “My postpartum anxiety is still here (and horrible), but I got myself up and took my first capoeira lesson today.”
“Getting back to martial arts made me feel a little bit more like myself," elle a continué. “Hope I can keep it up.”
Despite some of the challenges she’s faced, Munn has also acknowledged how much she’s loved being a mother. Au 24 Mars, Mulaney and the X-Men Apocalypse celebrated Malcom, as he turned four months old. Munn shared a post on Instagram about her son’s daily routines, in honour of the milestone.
“It’s been 4 months since the happiest, chillest baby came into my world," elle wrote in the caption. “He wakes up smiling every single morning without fail, he loves bath time so much that he kicks his legs and looks around whenever he hears the sound of the tub filling up, his tiny fists are his favourite things to gum on and he squeals and follows along page by page whenever we read to him.”
