Montana took to Instagram to share a photo of when she was still pregnant with Jude, as well as snaps of Jude now as a seven months old to her 1.1M followers. 

In the caption of the post she wrote, “7 months in vs 7 months out. I actually LOVED being pregnant it was such a special experience and it really made me respect my body so much more I’m still in awe”.

“This chapter has been hard, the lack of sleep etc is so tough, I legit cried when someone beeped me in the car recently and I always feel one beep or one comment away from having a meltdown but it’s such a humbling experience”.

The former reality TV star continued, “I am in awe of the mums that do it on their own, don’t have family around to support and who just don’t get a break because I am so fortunate to have support around me and I am STILL in the thick of it”.

“But despite how tired I have been, Jude gets me through, his smile first thing in the morning is just priceless”.

Many fans and famous faces headed to the comments to share supportive messages for Montana amid her candid insight. 

Social media influencer Grace Beverly wrote, “You’re incredible!! I also can’t believe he’s 7 months!!!”.
