Love Island star Cara De La Hoyde has thanked fellow mums who say they are also struggling on their parenting journey – days after her emotional outpouring saw her ask followers for advice on coping with her baby Deiliah.
The mum-of-two, previously wept in a heartfelt release when posting on her Instagram story how she was left drained by her baby girl who refuses to settle and she won’t leave her to cry.
But after offloading to her 1.1million fans, Cara returned to the social platform today to say thank you to those who supported her and update on how she is feeling.
She said: “Morning guys, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your messages the other day when I was having a bit of a meltdown. I’m actually a little bit embarrassed now but it’s alright I’m like well’ard again now until they start…”
In a previous post, the star who gave birth to her first daughter with villa co-star Nathan Massey last year, told how she could no longer cope as the child cried non-stop for 45 minutes.
And she appears to have found solidarity in her followers comments, and looked calm and collected, as she spoke from her kitchen where her youngest appeared sitting up in a high-chair.
She added: “For all of you that was asking for advise, it wasn’t really advice just loads of people saying they are going through the same…lockdown babies.. thing but just to know that there is loads of us.”
“Just be there for each other and try and do anything you can to just get’em out, that make your day easier, like going for walks to break it up. Good luck guys.”
It’s a far cry from her villa days as she’s opted for a more natural look and ditched the fake lashes, immaculate make-up and carefully chosen outfits and is fully immersed in life as a busy mum of two.
She previously told: “Before Love Island, I was a dancer so my body was my commodity. It earned me money. Working in clubs six nights a week, I didn’t need to go to the gym.
“Once you have kids, you need to cut yourself some slack because your body is going to change.
“But it’s done something amazing. Even my social media is different. Before I had kids, I’d never put up the pictures I do now.”
Cara and Nathan won Love Island in 2016 and went on to get married three years later, becoming one of the show’s rare success stories.
