Alexa PenaVega seems to be enjoying the beauty of motherhood since having her baby boy Ocean King PenaVega. The new mom shared a sweet snap of herself and her son on Instagram Friday after what seemed like a long night.

“Running off of no sleep but I’m so in love it doesn’t matter!! #MommyHood #Tired #NeedaNap,” she captioned the photo.

The same day, the actress also tweeted a story from Future of Personal Health in which she and her husband, Carlos PenaVega shared their journey through her pregnancy. PenaVega revealed that although she had a rough first trimester, which involved fatigue and nausea, once she reached her second trimester she was able to finally enjoy being pregnant.

“Your body is going through so many changes. But it doesn’t really hit you until you start feeling your baby move. That connection is so special and unlike anything you will ever experience,” she said.

The former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant admitted that her son changed her life for the better. “To be able to meet this little boy that we created together is the most exciting adventure we could’ve ever taken together,” she stated.

The new dad was just as excited about his bundle of joy. Prior to his wife’s post, the “Grease: Live!” star shared a photo of the baby sleeping on his side. In another post, PenaVega posted a selfie of himself with Ocean where he explained that he told his little boy the story of how his parents met.

The couple welcomed their first child together on Dec. 7, more than a week after his expected due date on Nov. 28. The duo, who married In January 2014, announced they were expecting in June.
