Jess Wright ‘loves being a mum’ but ‘finds it difficult’ as she opens up about motherhood

TOWIE favourite Jess Wright welcomed her new arrival into the Wright family last month.

Announcing she had given birth to her baby son Presley with her husband William Lee Kemp, the mum of one wrote on Instagram: "We will hold your hand forever."

However, Jess, 36, hinted at her struggles since becoming a mother for the first time as she shared a post about parenting on her Instagram story.

"I held my babies for their naps. I used a pacifier till 2. I microwave my kids’ meals. We used iPads and screen time. I bribe with candy. We skip baths. I let them eat fries for lunch. I sleep trained I use formula. I lose my cool," it read.

"My stomach is soft. I neglect household chores. I get touched out by the end of the day. I love it and I need a break. It’s easy to think you’re doing it all wrong and everyone else is doing it right. But I promise mama, there’s no right way to do this, just your own way."

Jess wrote alongside the quote: "Needed to hear this. Been one of those days."

Now, a source has told OK!: "Jess is loving being a new mum but nobody said it was going to be easy.

"The post she shared really spoke to her because she has been having some sleepless nights and does find aspects of it difficult, which everybody does."

They added that the star wants to take some time for herself and her health after finding the first few weeks a challenge.

"She is still trying to make some time for herself and has been treating herself to facials and massages which is so important," they continued.
