“Thank you to all the fans who honored our Scarlett yesterday,” Teefey wrote to fans and supporters. “Dec 17th will never be the same, but we decide to celebrate her by writing her letters on red balloons and releasing them.”
According to Teefey’s post, Scarlett was her second pregnancy between Selena Gomez and her youngest, Gracie Elliot Teefey. Teefey mentions in the post that she had to delete and disable the comments after some began writing offensive messages.
“Thank you to the people who respected my post and sent love to Scarlett,” Teefey wrote. “I’m sorry I had to take them down. I am disturbed at the words being posted on this from people who can even find an [opportunity] to be vile about a lost baby. You don’t like me, don’t spend time on me.”
Teefey did give her “13 Reasons Why” family a special shout out in the post for the kind words she received that day. Teefey and Selena are executive producers on the Netflix show. The second season finished filming on the anniversary of her miscarriage.
“Family is what matters, blood or not, #family13 made me smile and feel loved when so needed and they didn’t know,” Teefey said. She added: “Fans, I want you to know you are family because I have a huge family and you are the only ones who remember! XO forever.”
One of the lovely benefits of being on maternity leave is spending good old quality time with your new baby. So, while others are grinding away at work putting in their 9 to 5, mothers are at home nursing their infants — and working just as hard. Kehlani is one of those mothers making it look so cute. Kehlani is tearing up social media today with a sweet post showing herself nursing her baby and it is making hearts melt.
Kehlani posted the very first picture of her new baby girl and ti is giving everyone all of the feels.
While we can’t see her daughter’s face, Kehani’s smile says it all. We’re so thrilled to see her looking so happy, especially after she opened up about her intense at home birth and her prenatal depression.
“I’ve been getting lots of preggie folks saying I been making it look easy, and how they wish their pregnancy was/is going the same as mine seems to be…. I will say this: the internet makes everything look lovely and wonderful. Two days away from the 3rd trimester and this has been the hardest thing ever. From not knowing anything about prenatal depression nor understanding it while it’s been hitting me like a bag of bricks to being very isolated and alone internally and externally these days, to just the normal terrible sleep/no appetite/anxiety.”
Kehlani welcomed her baby girl last month alongside baby daddy Javaughn Young-White.
People are loving this post by Kehlani and her daughter.
The emotions on Twitter just intensified after this. Not only is Kehlani letting us in the personal details of her life with a photo fo her bundle of joy, she is also showing how normal breastfeeding is. #QUEEN
You know when a picture is just too cute and your brain can’t take it? Well, that’s everyone right now.
It’s like a brain freeze except it doesn’t hurt as much. Kehlani’s smile and confidence in the picture says it all. Motherhood looks good on her and we could all be so lucky to experience motherhood with that kind of ease.
Seeing Kehlani nursing her baby was too much for some people.
We can all hear this image because we all probably made the same sound when we first saw it. Like, damn Kehlani. You made everyone’s morning that much more adorable and we thank you for it.
The cuteness level is beyond.
These are not tears of sadness, but of pure joy. Who has the tissues? Kehlani’s fans will be crying through the rest of the week as they keep staring at these sweet family portraits.
A picture of Wendy Williams crying heart tears is the perfect reaction, tbh.
This is only the first picture Kehlani has shared. We’re certain she’ll share some more, at least that’s what we’re hoping for. We just want to see her Baby Bear grow up and be as strong as her incredible Momma Bear.
Kehlani’s happiness is making us want to hug the first person we see!
Congratulations again, Kehlani! Motherhood looks so good on you and it seems like the bundle of joy is bringing you unlimited joy. We can’t think of anyone who deserves this more.
As we’ve made our way into mainstream culture, we’ve inevitably had a non-Latino friend shooketh at the shit our moms put us through. They said one day we’d thank them, and this is mitú’s tribute to all the cray cray and our present day thoughts.
How many of these did your mom say? Comment with any we missed!
1. “When I was your age…”
It’s an oldie but a goodie. When Mama was my age, she could only afford to eat one slice of New York pizza a day and modeling for Barbizon three buses across the city. And I’m just “eating shit” on the computer (welcome to 2018, ma’, life and work is on the computer!).
2. “I have to do everything because you can’t do anything right.”
Response: a sarcastic smile and sarcastic bow to the queen.
Yeah, she’s going to hit you for that one.
3. “You don’t know how to turn the tortilla but you want a boyfriend.”
YES, MOM. Any boy that’s with me is going to have to flip their own tortilla. #Feminism
4. “See, I told you.”
“Ok, but I literally just fell out of a tree and broke my leg. Please, help?”
5. “Do you think I was born yesterday?”
I hated when I heard this because it meant that my mom had made up some elaborate conspiracy theory that I had to disprove. I sweaaaar, we’re not up to anything! We’re angels! ?
6. “God will punish you.”
When you did something so “bad” that she is just too disgusted to deal with you and let’s slip these three words: ?
7. “This house isn’t your hotel.”
Or better yet, “Do you think I’m your maid?” We’re children. We play with LEGOS. Let us be.
8. “Because I’m your mother.”
The jig is up folks. You think you’ve got logic and reason on your side, but as soon as she whips this one out, it’s all over. Don’t even try to argue.
9. “Son of a ____”
Filter? What filter? You mom has probably called you this to your face, pero liike, what is she saying about herself? ?
10. “Calm down before I make you calm down.”
I have chills. The full effect is in Spanish and I vow to never say this to my children. A variation might be, “Stop crying before I give you something to cry about.” YEESH.
11. “Who asked you?”
Oh you have an opinion, eh? Keep it to yourself, estupida. Do you need therapy yet? Let’s keep going.
12. “Do what you want”
Alright, so that sounds supportive right? Nope. This is code for “It’s your choice, but it’s a terrible one and I will chew you out alive if you go through with this.”
13. “Because you’re a fool”
Someone help me translate this. Basically, your mom was just like, “by way of you being a fool, of course this happened.” Two words can pack a punch.
14. Literal translation: “Go with caution.”
What she’s actually saying: “I’m this close to beating the shit out of you. Be careful what you say next.”
15. Literally, “Take that face off or you’ll see how it’s going to go in the house.”
What she’s actually saying: “Lose the sour face or we’ll see how it really looks when we get home (and I can explode in the privacy of our home).”
16. “Come so I can give you something to cry about.”
Sometimes, when I was sobbing, my mom would just pinch me really hard or yank my ear and tell me, “this is what real pain feels like.” OK, at this point, I’m concerned that my younger self but I promise she’s a really sweet lady.
17. “Who gave you permission to leave, eh?”
Your free will is a privilege in this house, you hear me? Never leave the house without permission.
18. “Sit better, you’re a lady.”
Yeah, your mom can talk about how your brothers need to take up all the space in the backseat so their fcking cojones can breath and I’m supposed to shrink. #NoGracias #SmashThePatriarchy #ImNoLady
19. “Get your shit together.”
You probably heard this around your school work a lot, and while your mom would not tutor you in anything but Spanish class, she always had this wise dicho for you. Thanks, mom!
20. “You already greeted everyone?”
There is nothing more important that your mom showing off the perfect gentleman or señorita she raised. You must greet everyone on each cheek or she’ll get you.
21. “Oh but last night it’s all party.”
This one comes at you early Saturday morning when she barges in your room with the cleaning supplies at 7am and you say you’re tired. I don’t know where Latina moms get their energy but maybe it comes with age? I’m praying.
22. “I’m mopping, don’t touch the floor!”
Is that a trick question? Nope! When el trapeando begins, the floor is lava and if you touch it you’ll feel the wrath of a thousand volcanos. It was the perfect excuse to stay on the couch and watch TV. 🙂
23. “Como que what, tell me mande.”
Never tell your Mexican mother, ‘como que.’ It’s a cardinal sin. Always say ‘mande’ if you want to keep your life.
24. “Be nice.”
You know how when you’re invited somewhere, it’s not about you, it’s about keeping up appearances. Well, she don’t care if you’re in a bad mood, your mama is going to tell you to be nice and shut down your mood. #ReasonsWhyWereCodependent
25. “Turn down the music, you’re going to become deaf.”
I truly believed my mom when she told me that as Avril Lavigne was blasting through my boom box. Like, I seriously feared I was going deaf.
26. “If I find it, you’re in trouble.”
Here’s your next move: run to your room, pray to St. Anthony that she never finds it and that you find it, and then pray to the Virgin Mary that your mom has mercy on you.
27. “I do everything for you and this is how you repay me?”
Usually, you’re feeling pretty shitty at this point, because it’s true. Our moms do everything for us, and Latina moms seem to sacrifice more than anyone, and give endlessly to us. I can hear my mom telling me this right now after reading this article. ?
I’M SO SORRY. TE AMO.
28. “What are you going to do the day I die?”
Moms love to talk about the day the die as leverage for forgiveness, or, in probably most cases, as a way to manipulate us into gratitude. Pero verdad, we can’t think about that day because we love our crazy ass moms so much, that the thought of a drama-free life feels like death to us. #VivaLaMama!
