She shared a picture of a children’s storybook “The Rainbow Fish” and said that it was once her favorite book.

“Only now that I am sharing it with Alas do I understand the meaning of the story… Share,” she mused. “No matter how beautiful you are, it does not guarantee happiness.”

She treasures reading to her son: “Storytime has become so much more emotionally binding.”

The 25-year-old actress also detailed that she experienced postpartum depression: “At 6 months postpartum I am happy and confident to say that the mood swings and postpartum depression have died down and I am enjoying this phase so much.”

“Not that I didn’t enjoy the past months, I’m just so happy to acknowledge the fact that I am in a stable place,” she explained.

The first-time mom has also previously opened up on other struggles, such as taking care of baby Alas and doing housework on her own after a helper up and left their small family.

She admitted in an earlier post in January that she was aching to work again: “I miss working and creating and it’s something I cannot leave behind. I don’t think I could leave it forever.”

She reflected that she was learning to “accept the fact that now there is no me. There is a family.”
