Leafar is reaching milestones every day, and I’m so lucky that I’m able to be there to witness each and every moment."
"Every day I look forward to seeing him grow into the sweet little boy is becoming," she concluded. "Feliz cumpleaños, mi amorcito."

"To be honest, my husband [Leafar Reyes] and I want to take the next 40 days (the 4th trimester) to focus on the baby and our amazing relationship transitioning into amazing parenthood - so, please excuse us if we’re not on here as much for a little while," she added. "Just know we love you all and thank you for all the words of love+support!"
