Singer Jennifer Nettles celebrated Mother’s Day this weekend by tweeting out a picture of her first child, Magnus Hamilton Miller. The baby was born on December 6, 2012 to Nettles and her husband, Justin Miller.
Nettles gained fame in the mid-00s as one half of the country music duo Sugerland.
Nettles has also recounted her first few months of motherhood over on her blog. She stated that the baby is the “boss” of her and that the “rhythm” of her life is now very different:
There is a reason why sleep deprivation is one of the first stages of torture. You’ll tell someone anything and they won’t even have to touch you. “Mommy brain” is absolutely real as a result of your brain being deprived the sleep it needs to function normally. I was making a grocery list and said to my mom, “What’s it called? A ‘glass’ of peanut butter?” She said kindly, “No honey, it’s a JAR!” Dear Lord! And so I am reveling in and hopefully gracefully fumbling through, this most beautiful, challenging, precious, sleep deprived time as a new mommy.
I have appreciated all of your supportive messages and tweets as I have been giving myself the space to enjoy this most sacred, precious time. However, I am also bursting at the seams with pride! And so, it gives me great pleasure to say to you,
