There are certainly upsides to heading back to work after giving birth — and for HGTV star Mina Starsiak, a big one is the evening snuggles!

The new mom, 33, posted an Instagram photo of herself with 6-week-old son Jack Richard on Monday, announcing that she’s officially back filming her show Good Bones.

Wrote the mother of one in the caption, “It was my first FULL day back filming and I missed this little nugget SOOO much!! 😍”

“He’s getting ALL the snuggles this evening 🤗,” Starsiak added, with the hashtag, “#mommasboyinthemaking.”

Since giving birth to little Jack, the real-estate expert has shared some of her parenting struggles including one that many new moms can relate to.

Earlier this month, Starsiak wrote a candid message about breastfeeding on Instagram, alongside a photo of her feeding her then-3-week-old son while simultaneously pumping.

“There are sooo many ways I’m figuring out to take care of your babe the best way you can for yourself and them, and although I wanted to exclusively breastfeed directly, that’s not in the cards for us. So, this is how we roll,” the reality star said.

She added a call to action for her fellow mommies, writing, “Moms, be nice to each other too! Having a little one is hard enough without everyone telling you what you’re doing ‘wrong.’ “
