Olivia Munn is speaking on her postpartum experience when it comes to hair loss.
On April 14, the mom of one shared photos of herself and her 4-month-old son, Malcolm—whom she shares with John Mulaney—to Instagram when one user asked if she could jokingly “have [Olivia’s] hair for one day,” which led the new mom to share her own experience with hair loss.
“Ummm, it’s falling out in clumps post-partum,” Olivia wrote, adding: “I’ll let you have it once I can grow it back and give it to you in better condition.”
Back in January, Olivia spoke on the difficulties of breastfeeding, telling her Instagram followers that providing milk to her son can be “hard, especially if you have low supply.”
In addition to a March Instagram post, the 41-year-old shared that her hips felt “wonky from pushing out a human being,” adding that her “post-partum anxiety is still here (and horrible).”
However, Olivia revealed it is possible to feel it like it all happens at once.
“I’m so so happy,” she posted alongside a separate Instagram Story pic in March.
“And at the same time, I’m struggling (weird to feel both simultaneously yet so grateful to have all the happiness to keep me afloat).”
As for that happiness, fans got to see it up close and personal when she penned a shoutout to her baby for his birthday in late March.
And in late March, she posted a tribute to Malcolm in late March.
“It’s been 4 months since the happiest, chillest baby came into my world,” the actress captioned a March 24 Instagram photo of the two.
“He wakes up smiling every single morning without fail, he loves bath time so much that he kicks his legs and looks around whenever he hears the sound of the tub filling up, his tiny fists are his favorite things to gum on and he squeals and follows along page by page whenever we read to him.”
Olivia ended the post with a simple message for her son: “I love you I love you I love you.”
