Last week, Robertson shared a candid post on her Instagram Story about how she is healing following the birth of her daughter.

Sharing a photograph of herself posing with Honey, Robertson wrote, "Life update bc Instagram can be misleading at times: I am definitely still in the healing process. Haven't really moved in the past 2 + days, and been receiving lots of help from my amazing husband and the grandmas."

"However I have had the best cuddles ever from the snuggle bug 😍," the mom of one continued. "I will say postpartum has been so special in a million ways (truly), but the pain is real and can't just be ignored."

Closing out her message, Robertson said that she is "learning to be still and accept help so that I can be the best mom I can to my baby girl," adding that she is "forever gonna be matching with my bestie."

"We saw a million little miracles yesterday - the best one being this girl right here... Honey 💛," Robertson captioned the photos. "The pure goodness of God. story to come, but I'm way too occupied right now by cuteness."

Robertson and Huff, 22, announced their pregnancy in early October, with both sharing snaps of themselves cuddled up on the couch and showcasing the sonogram.

"SCREAMING WITH EXCITEMENT TO SHARE THIS NEWS! Baby we already adore you," Robertson wrote alongside her post.
