It's become a running joke – the effects pregnancy and childbirth have on a woman's body. Stretch marks and hair loss and leaky boobs are just punchlines we moms have all heard one too many times.
Somehow, though, Rebecca Judd's confession as to what it was like to accidentally pee herself is honest, endearing, ingenious . . . and refreshingly funny.
The Australian mom of four, who just so happens to be a model and TV personality, was co-hosting a segment at a local radio station and revealed just what happens when you've got weak pelvic floor muscles and an overactive postpartum bladder.
"All right, so here's the thing . . . confession," Judd, who gave birth to twins nine months ago, said to KIIS 1065 3 PM Pick-Up. "I get into the carpark, put her in, put the pram in, got into the car, and I sit in the driver's seat, and I'm like, 'Oh my God, it's actually about to come out. I can't hold this in.'"
Being a mom, she knew how to improvise.
"Luckily, I had a spare nappy in the glovebox, so I just whacked it on and away we went . . . no spills, no leaks, no worries," she joked before explaining just how she managed such a feat:
I had maternity jeans on, so you just pull it out and slip the nappy in. Of course, I'm like scrunching down really low so no one in the carpark can see me and I just kind of put it in like a big pad and just went away with it and binned it when I got home."
Now that's a good one.
