Mondays, am I right? Lucky for Tess Holliday, the new mom knows how to start off her week in the cutest way possible.

The size 22 model shared on Instagram Monday that motherhood has opened up a new way of living. “Mondays are a dread by all, sometimes even the self employed like myself,” Holliday, 30, wrote along with a selfie of 2-week-old son Bowie Juniper.

Adding, “Because everyday is a new adventure when you see it through your little ones eyes #motherhoodrising #normalizebreastfeeding.”

Tess and her fiancé Nick Holliday welcomed their first child together on June 6 after confirming her second pregnancy to PEOPLE exclusively in January. She is already mom to 10-year-old son Rylee from a previous relationship.

“Now I find that the day’s blur together of breastfeeding, sleeping when I can, tears of happiness (& sometimes fear), & no longer having a case of ‘The Mondays.'”

Nick also celebrated his first Father’s Day this year, a special celebration which the mother of two gushed about on social media. “Happy #FathersDay to my partner @nickhollidayco He has been a great father figure to my oldest son & now we are celebrating with Bowie,” she wrote.

Who cares what size she is? How is this important to the story? When will we ever get to the point of not caring about what size someone is on a tag if magazines like this keep publishing it. Can’t we just celebrate that she’s a new mom to a beautiful baby? Woman are more than just a number.

Who cares about her size- that’s her problem. But she should lose the nose ring. YUCK!

First: she is not a size 22
Second: if she is, who cares

Yikes she could really use a refresher on how to use plural forms of words correctly. Her baby is absolutely beautiful though and I wish her and her partner all the best with their new blessing ❤

She looks like more than size 22 to me.

Why do you keep running stories on this woman? She is not famous for anything other than being huge, lying about her size and not being able to produce a single coherent thought without telling someone to Eff off if they don’t agree with her being morbidly obese?! Continuing to give her a platform is just really sad and tells girls, hey it’s ok to not give a crap about your body or health.

Her last name is Holliday and her fiancé is Holliday, but they aren’t married yet? Did she already take is last name or is she marrying a relative?

Erin, the only reason this woman has any articles is because she’s a “model” at her size. Her size is her whole thing.
