eva amurri feels empowered as she weans three month old son mateo off breastfeeding

After giving birth to her son Mateo Antoni three months ago, Eva Amurri promised herself she would only continue to breastfeed ‘for as long as it felt good and positive.’ 

The 35-year-old Happily Eva After blogger, who has more than 162 thousand Instagram followers, shared a candid post about how breastfeeding triggers ‘symptoms akin to PMS, and even postpartum depression and anxiety’ for her. 

‘I’ve made the decision to start weaning Mateo, and today on the blog I’m talking ‘about that decision as well as the process I’m taking,’ she captioned a slideshow of pictures of herself holding her youngest at home on Wednesday.

Looking flawless, the mother-of-three donned a pair of cobalt blue slacks with a vibrant floral pattern and tenderly held her little boy, who she shares with ex-husband Kyle Martino. 

She reflected: ‘The decision to wean is super personal for every woman and can come with a lot of emotion – especially because each woman’s decision to wean can be tied to feelings of really deep-rooted frustration, shame, sadness, relief, or pressure.’ 

On her blog, she opened up about feeling ‘guilty every step of the way’ after weaning her firstborn Marlowe, 5½, at four months.

While in retrospect, she knows her decision was the right choice, she wishes she could go ‘back to that 29 year old woman’ and tell her, ‘Listen Honey. You need to do what you need to do. You need to be strong and happy to make your child strong and happy!’ 

Similarly with her 3½-year-old son Major James, she had to stop breastfeeding, after a few months, due to ‘a mental health crisis’ she was undergoing at the time.  

Upon preparing to breastfeeding with her third child, Amurri decided she wouldn’t ‘cry over it, dread it, or curse it.’

However, Amurri admits ‘beginning to wean Mateo has been pretty emotional.’ 

‘The past few months have been really nutty for all of us, and having that special time with my sweet boy a bunch of times a day has really bonded us,’ she noted. 

The actress pointed out, ‘Since I have been both a formula-feeding mama and a breastfeeding mama, I do know that taking that time itself with my baby is what ultimately bonds us, though.’

While she still gets little ‘teary-eyed’ thinking knowing the days of him latching are numbered, she feels ‘really empowered.’

‘I’m looking forward to feeding my son from a bottle with love, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he will be just as “fine” as my other kids were,’ she concluded, while reaching out to other moms to share their stories in the comments.

She also encouraged other parents not to feel ‘wracked with guilt about her breastfeeding choices.’

zac efron is now living in bondi beach after spending months in byron bay

Zac Efron has reportedly moved to Sydney’s Bondi Beach, after spending months quietly living in Byron Bay, on the far north NSW coast.

The High School Musical star, 32, was apparently spotted earlier this week at a ‘little restaurant’ on Bondi Road.

Former Bachelor winner Laura Byrne claimed on the Life Uncut podcast that she’d seen ‘Zac f**king Efron’ and his entourage at the venue.

Laura said: ‘I walked past and I saw this guy in the window and I thought, “Ah, he’s good looking,” and I looked at his face and I was like, “Holy s**t, that’s Zac Efron.”‘

‘And he saw that I saw him, and he saw that I recognised him,’ she added.

‘It was 100 per cent Zac Efron. He’s in Bondi – all you single ladies, get down here!’

The Hollywood actor has spent the past few months ‘riding out’ the coronavirus pandemic in Australia on a tourist visa.

He is believed to be dating a local woman named Vanessa Valladares, who until recently was a waitress at the Byron Bay General Store café. 

Laura did not mention on her podcast if Zac was accompanied by Vanessa in Bondi.

It comes after Woman’s Day reported that Zac was ‘torn’ between his new romance Down Under and his acting career in America.

Since falling head over heels for 25-year-old Vanessa, the star apparently has friends worried he will never return to the United States.

‘Zac’s completely lost it over this girl and says he’s never felt so free and alive – she cuts through all his Hollywood bulls**t,’ a source claimed.

‘He’s really torn between his cosy scene with Vanessa and his crazy career,’

While Zac is living in Australia for the time being, he’s expected to return to America in the coming months to film the Disney+ remake of Three Men and a Baby.

Because of border restrictions between Australia and the U.S., the only way for him and Vanessa to travel back and forth together would be to get married – and they are reportedly considering this as an option.

‘I really think Zac’s at the point where he’d marry Vanessa tomorrow if she said yes,’ an insider told New Idea magazine.

Confirmed? 'It was 100 per cent Zac Efron. He's in Bondi - all you single ladies, get down here!' said Laura. Laura is pictured with her fiancé, Matty Johnson, and their daughter, Marlie Mae

The Baywatch hunk is believed to have met Vanessa in July when she was waiting tables at the Byron Bay General Store café.

She has since quit her job and until recently was believed to be staying with Zac at his rented home in Belongil Beach.

Last month, Daily Mail Australia revealed that Zac had cancelled a scheduled flight back to Los Angeles.

‘He was only planning to fly home if he had to,’ a source said at the time. ‘He didn’t really want to go back to America.’  

Zac had purchased the plane ticket several months ago in case his application for a visa extension was denied by the Department of Home Affairs.

But it seems his request to have his tourist visa extended from three months to 12 months was granted.
