Throughout most of 2018, Kat Von D celebrated the pregnancy of his first child with husband Rafael Reyes. And in December, the 36-year-old tattoo icon gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Leafar. 


After giving birth, Von D was quick to share some of the challenges she'd experienced adjusting to motherhood with her fanbase on social media. One of those challenges was producing breast milk, with Von D hiring a woman to help out during the first few days. However, Von D has since adjusted to breast feeding and shared a video of herself to share her progress to social media.

On the post, a fan commented by saying "I may never be able to have a baby (I've miscarried twice) but seeing this is beautiful and makes me cry happy tears!" Von D was quick to encourage the follower by sharing publicly that she'd miscarried twice while trying to conceive with her husband before having her first baby. 


Von D has proven that she's extremely open with sharing her trials and tribulations in motherhood over social media and her influence has the potential to make a huge difference for young women.
