We’ve seen plenty of breastfeeding selfies over the years.


But rarely do we see the aftermath captured so beautifully on camera: the milk stains, the leaky boobs, the wrecked T-shirt.

Enter US actress Amber Tamblyn (who you might know from The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants or Two And A Half Men).

The 33-year-old announced just weeks ago that she’d given birth to her 1st child, a baby girl, with husband David Cross.

(We’re pretty sure she was joking when she announced her daughter’s name as Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey jr ?)

And it seems the new mum was keen to share one of the least Instagram-friendly moments of motherhood with her 208k followers.

"Who Wore It Better? Left t** or right t**? #MilkLife #StarsTheyreJustLikeUs!”

We’ve got to say that, in our eyes, Amber’s totally nailed it with this picture. It almost doesn’t need an explanation, because it is the explanation – you know?

It’s always great when those in the public eye aren’t afraid to ‘get real’ on social media, and Amber’s fans definitely seem to agree: there were countless comments in praise of her decision to post.

"Welcome to motherhood!” wrote one.

"Finally a celebrity to post something I can really f****** relate to: leaky boobs!"

Another joked: "We're with you, mama! I'm waiting for the next pic of spit-up down your shirt!”

While another fan summarised the mood of the pic with: "Ahhh milk life.? Where every item of clothing you wear has milk on it.”

Thanks for sharing, Amber ?
