As a mother herself, Turia feels it is important to be a good role model to Kids.
Turia and her partner Michael became proud parents to a cool little dude, Hakavai, in December 2017.
“I feel like if you have one child, you’re really lucky — if you have two, you’re even luckier,” Turia told Stella Mag so to see that she is nearly due for her second child is truly wonderful.
Turia also told the publication that “Parenthood changes every day,” she said. “Some days are joyful, some are extraordinary, some you’re really irritated and really short with your partner and you’re tired. Mum is just around the corner and Michael is a really hands-on dad, but still, I find it hard.”
“Motherhood is definitely not an easy job.”
Mothers around Australia rally around her for being honest and not sugar coating life as a mother. It is bloody hard work managing the uncontrollable emotions and demands of a baby and then a toddler.
Turia has also documented her recovery openly on social media and through her newsletters and is eager to welcome her second child soon saying “Baby #2, we can’t wait to meet you 💛PS I promise we’ll find you a more appropriate name soon 😂.”
We wish you a safe delivery Turia. Mama, we’ve got your back.
