REAL TALK: My Boobs Just Leaked on Live TV

Attention ladies: Mommin' ain't easy and OMG y'all, it ain't pretty either.

I just returned to work at WGNO after having my second baby boy in May.  I've breastfed Brooks exclusively until now and it seems my milk machines haven't quite caught on to their new schedule.

Yesterday, during the second to last commercial break of my 11 am newscast, I felt let-down.  I hoped.  I prayed.  And then I felt it.  THE DREADED WET SPOTS!!!  ON LIVE TV!!!

My director tightened up my solo shot to cut out the leaking ladies.  On two-shots, I instilled some super creative arm crossing!  In the end, I don't think viewers were the wiser.  Behind the scenes, however, we all nearly died laughing.

All you nursing moms who've been there... I want you to know it may feel like the most embarrassing thing in the world... but trust me, you're not alone!

OMG I'm on TV right now!!!

OMG I'm on TV right now!!!
