Ali Fedotowsky's Top Parenting Tweets Prove She's Got Motherhood Down
It's been little over a month since Ali Fedotowsky gave birth to her adorable daughter Molly Sullivan Manno, and the new mom has already had the full motherhood experience — including everything from sleepless nights to way-too-cute Instagram snaps. Luckily for fans, she's embraced it all with humor, honesty, and plenty of sharing (bring on the cute baby pictures). Ali Fedotowsky's top parenting tweets prove she's got this whole motherhood thing down. Or at least, you know, as down as most new mothers feel.
The season six Bachelorette gave birth to Molly just over five weeks ago, on July 6. Molly is Fedotowsky and fiancé Kevin Manno's first child following their engagement last September. (Just in case you were asking the same question I was, no, Manno and Fedotowsky did not meet on the set of The Bachelorette — they were friends who first started dating publicly in 2013.) Soon after Molly was born, Fedotowsky told Us Weekly:
Judging by Fedotowsky's recent social media posts, her sentiments haven't changed — but she's also gotten way more familiar with Molly's pooping schedule, sleeping habits, and breastfeeding dilemmas, and she's willing to share that all with fans.

Fedotowsky even shared on her blog, Ali Luvs, that she considers her and Manno's dog Owen their "first child." "He loves his sister so much!" Fedotowsky wrote on her blog. "When he comes home from a walk with Kevin, he used to sprint into the house to greet me. Now he runs right by me and goes straight to Molly. He is so protective of her."
Baby Molly has been here for just over five weeks, but Fedotowsky is already making her motherhood experiences relatable, aww-inspiring, and hilarious. Here's to more awesome posts during Fedotowsky's first year of parenting!
