Mothers can do nothing without inviting ridicule. I’ve been trolled online for taking my baby to Target without socks, feeding my black beans, and not cutting my baby’s waffle — I could go on and on, sadly. Heather Rae El Moussa is the latest mom to spark an online backlash over a completely normal parenting thing, and it’s so frustrating.
THE For sale Sunset star shared two stunning newborn photos taken by newborn photographer Candice Swanson. The portraits of her feature Heather Rae and her son Tristan Jay, born January 31, whom she shares with husband Tarek El Moussa. She wrote a sweet note in the caption: “The photos of her newborn are making my heart melt Everyone said they grow up so fast. And it is so true. My little bundle of heaven… can it stay like this forever!!? 🤍🤍🤍” See the photos HERE.

The first is a close-up of Heather Rae holding her sweet, wrinkled, diaper-clad baby boy, who sleeps curled up in his mama. She smiles at the camera in a stunning powder blue dress. The second is a long shot of mother and child. Tristan is still sleeping on his mother’s shoulder and she is smiling at the camera. Her floor-length gown is on full display, with the tulle flowing around her and behind her in a long train. She seems ethereal and completely in love with her baby. So obviously, there have been complaints.
“Where are the photos of the newborns?” one person sarcastically asked and another replied, “Lol. I was thinking the same thing. All I see is her dress 👗.”

“He got lost in that dress though,” said another. Someone else rightly pointed out, “This dress is…….. misses the mark.”
One person rudely wrote: “Newborn baby photos are those of a newborn baby. Hence the name.”
First of all, why do you care so much about someone else’s newborn photos? Heather Rae can wear anything she wants to take pictures with her baby and her dress is beautiful! If she wants to look like a fairy princess, who cares? No, seriously, why are you interested in her?
Second, it doesn’t even get lost in the dress. The close-up photo of mom and baby is all about him and it’s gorgeous. Stop trying to erase moms, we deserve credit and recognition and the chance to feel beautiful even in photos.
