Amid the criminal charges facing her dad, Ireland Baldwin still managed to express some pretty introspective feelings on Instagram yesterday. The 27-year-old model and actress took to the social media platform to discuss her pregnancy journey, and all the mental health challenges therein.

In a five part statement, Baldwin details the “mental warfare” of pregnancy, and the toll it takes on an expectant mother. More than that, she talks about the impact it has on relationships, and how hard the overall process can be.

It takes a big person to come to grips with some of the concepts Ireland Baldwin touches on in her post above. Frankly, to recognize that social media isn’t always the best place to begin with is an uncommon thought — and to post so candidly, without expecting sympathy, is an incredible act of courage too.

The reality is that most of the time, we’re all going through something. To know that you’re not alone is the first step into understanding how to overcome whatever adversity it is you’re facing. Sometimes, all it takes is one person to speak, and the rest of us will follow. Well, that person seems to be Ireland Baldwin, and we think that’s pretty cool.

Regardless of what’s going on in your life, just know that the folks here at We Got This Covered understand that it might not be easy. You are seen, you are cared for, you are one of a kind. Now go forth, and kick ass.
