Firefly actress keeps it real post-birth
Jewel Staite had her baby and shows the world that even actresses can't escape the drudgery that is new motherhood.

If you don't know who Jewel Staite I don't think I can forgive you for not having seen Joss Whedon's sci-fi masterpiece that is Firefly (cancelled too soon). I've loved her and that entire cast since I became enthralled with this series.

Recently Jewel just became a mum. Her little one was overdue and she was not happy about it:

Over. Effing. Due.

But two days later Wilder Cathcart Ritchie was born at 1:55am on December 9th.

Obsessed. Also pretty sure I'm still high from my epidural.

But what I love most about her is how real she keeps it post birth. Whether you're a celeb or not, post-birth everyone looks rough! It's not a fun time: you're beyond exhausted, you're probably overwhelmed, you're more than likely in desperate need of a shower but you're in a bubble of complete happiness with your new bundle of joy.
