Earlier this week, Matthews spoke candidly about her life as a new mom during a fan Q&A on her Instagram Story.

The former athlete, who welcomed her daughter in February, opened up about sharing mostly positive moments of the experience after a follower said, "Post the momma struggles too, we know you have them. You post as if it's always perfect."

"Yes I have them. But I choose not to talk about them on here," Matthews explained. "That's my own personal choice. I try not to make everything seem perfect, I'm sorry if I do, cause you're right that's not the case about everything."
