Heidi Montag is in awe of the bond she has created with her son through breastfeeding.

The mother of one, 31, shared a glamorous portrait of herself with the 3-month-old on Instagram Friday, along with a caption that described her motherhood experience thus far.

“The greatest joy and blessing in my life. My angel has taken me to a completely new and powerful experience,” the mother of one said of the photo taken by Ivette Ivens for her upcoming book, All Mighty Mothers.

“More love than I could have possibly imagined! I love, support, and appreciate women more than I ever have before. The strength and heart it takes every day. It has been more rewarding than I could have dreamed. God truly had made women to be extraordinary,” The Hills alum concluded.

And that same day, she tweeted: “I love breastfeeding!”

She and husband Spencer Pratt, who wed in November 2008, became parents to baby Gunner on Oct. 1.

Montag, who previously shared a breastfeeding photo when Gunner was first born, recently opened up about becoming a first-time mom on her podcast Make Speidi Famous Again.

“I’m sleep-deprived and tired and busy, but it’s so perfect,” she gushed about life with her newborn. “I waited a long time to have kids and it was meant to be to have him.”

Also on Friday, Montag shared footage of the father-son bond while waiting for Gunner’s four-month doctor’s checkup on Instagram Story.

Back in November, Pratt admitted that he’s quickly becoming one of those parents he swore not to become.

“It’s so funny. I used to be like, ‘Why do people put their babies on their content?’ Well, now I know,” he said on Snapchat. “Because we’re obsessed with our babies. And if you don’t like it, you just click to the next story. So forgive me, anyone in the past, that I judged for putting baby content in your story.”
