Six months ago, 36-year-old High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale first became a mother – the actress gave birth to a daughter, Jupiter Iris, from her husband Christopher French. Now Ashley is still getting used to her new role as a mother. She admits that it is often very difficult for her.
I want to share this because it seems to me that it is important to show those sides that we rarely talk about. I cried in the bathroom because the path of motherhood can be difficult
– she noted on Instagram.

The actress said that the postpartum changes affected her mental health and emotional well-being.
There are days when I don’t feel very well because I don’t recognize my body,
The star said that she continues to recover from childbirth and at some points experiences some discomfort.
I am still recovering and sometimes sneeze and pee at the same time, which makes me realize how much my body has changed,
Now the actress is trying to find a balance between work and motherhood and is not afraid to be weak and give vent to emotions.
I allow myself to cry because it’s not easy. I'm not perfect and that's okay
– says Tisdale.
Ashley said that social media greatly influenced her self-esteem, so she began to train hard after giving birth to get back in shape.
I worked like a damn. But I still felt uncomfortable in my body
But then the star realized that she did not need to compare herself with others, and she realized that she needed to be kinder to herself.
Thoughts such as “you are not good enough, you could look better” should not arise. Especially when you realize that your body has just given birth to another human being,
– she noted.
