From professionally edited pictures to excessive filters and so much more, Instagram can sometimes do some serious harm to our self-esteem. But thanks to influencers like Taylor Giavasis, there's a little corner of social media that celebrates bodies for what they are: our home.

For those who didn't know, Taylor Giavasis is not only internet personality's Nash Grier's fiancé but is also the mother of their adorable two-year-old son, Malakai. And ever since that second stripe turned pink on the pregnancy test, Taylor's relationship with her body has changed in ways she could never have imagined. And she's done us the favor of taking us along for the ride to self-love. Her Instagram feed is filled with natural and authentic posts about life as a Gen-Z mother and trying to live as healthily and honestly as possible.

"Baby or not [our] bodies are constantly changing and evolving to properly function the way we need them to," Giavasis shared in one of her captions. She compiled zoomed-in shots of some of her post-partum body. "Here are some changes my body has gone through after Malakai. Sometimes viewing your new body through a lens of expectations can be difficult without change there is no growth and we are on this earth to evolve."

Now, that's not to say that motherhood has been one easy walk in the park for Taylor, and she's also been honest about her struggles. From anxiety to worrisome doubts about her parenting skills, Giavasis has kept it real with her 1.3 million followers. But in her eyes, being Malakai's mom is all about "constantly growing together." And that means taking every day as it comes and trying to get through the sleepless nights and toddler tears with a positive and accepting mindset. Although if you ask any of her followers, we're sure they'd say that Malakai's one of the smiliest babies on the planet - and we bet it has to do with his mom's down-to-earth approach to life!
