Viy Cortez shares postpartum selfie: ‘Babawi ako sa sarili ko’

Vlogger and entrepreneur Viy Cortez got real about her current state after giving birth to Zeus Emmanuel “Kidlat” Velasquez, her newborn son with her partner and fellow YouTuber Cong TV.

In a Facebook post yesterday, July 11, Viy uploaded a barefaced selfie as she candidly shared her sentiments about her postpartum appearance.

“Itsura ng nagpapadede, may tahi, nangangapa pa paano ba dapat ang tamang gawin,” she captioned her photo. “Okay lang ‘yan, bawi na lang sa mga susunod na buwan. [Ang] mahalaga healthy si baby.”

The content creator quipped that even though she thinks she doesn’t look her best at the moment, she’s confident that her husband and her son loves her just the way she is.

“Alam ko naman mahal ako ni Cong at ni Kidlat kahit ang panget ko ngayon hahaha,” she wrote.

To end the post, Viy said that she will soon cater to her own needs again, but for now, baby Kidlat remains her priority.

“Babawi ako sa sarili ko next time. Ngayon para sa anak ko muna lahat,” she added.

Viy’s followers stormed the comment section to show support for her and let her know that she’s not alone in experiencing this stage of motherhood.

“It's okay, Viy. We all go through that as moms. Kudos for being a hands-on mom to Kidlat!” one netizen wrote.

Another comment read, “Wala pong panget sa nanay na ibinibigay ang lahat sa kanyang mag-ama. Worth it ang sakripisyo pagod at puyat nating mga ina.”

Viy gave birth to Kidlat last July 5. She and Cong have been in a relationship since 2015.
