Celebrities get to enjoy a lot of perks, but breast-milk-resistant shirts aren’t one of them — just ask Amber Tamblyn.

The Girlfriend’s Day star, who welcomed a daughter in February, shared a photo to her Instagram account Saturday that gets super real about the not-so-glamorous side of new motherhood: leaky boobs.

“Who Wore It Better? Left tit or right tit?” she joked in the caption of the snap: a mirror selfie in which the shirt worn by Tamblyn, 33, sports matching milk stains on each breast.

“#MilkLife #StarsTheyreJustLikeUs!” she added.

“David and I are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey jr,” Tamblyn jokingly captioned a clip of her baby’s tiny foot by way of a birth announcement.

“Two of my favorite hands,” she wrote alongside a Thursday photo of her newborn daughter’s hand, grasping an adult’s finger.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants alum announced she was pregnant in October, in an emotionally and historically poignant essay she penned for Glamour.

“Motherhood has been heavily on my mind because I am going to be a mother soon,” wrote the actress and poet. “I’m pregnant, with a daughter on the way. I think constantly about the world I am bringing her into.”

Continued Tamblyn, who previously shared that she was a victim of sexual assault, “Will I get a phone call from my daughter someday, one she never wanted to make?”
