Married At First Sight's Zoe Reveals Her Biggest Surprise

Married At First Sight’s Zoe Hendrix and Alex Gardner welcomed their first child into the world, Harper, in November and they haven’t stopped sharing pics since!

The 27-year-old mother has revealed what has shocked her most about parenting so far saying she felt like her boobs ‘had to be worn in boot camp style’’ in an Instagram shot on Wednesday.


Zoe posted the photo in an attempt to get society to ‘normalise breastfeeding.’

'I FEED her body and she NOURISHES my soul. It took me a good two weeks to get the hang of breastfeeding. Like a new pair of shoes my boobs had to be worn in boot camp style!' Zoe began the post.

'Both Harper & I had to learn the art of attachment and it wasn't easy. I had days I wanted to give up. Thank god for the nipple shield which was a godsend when I needed in those early days when my nips resembled a crime scene.

"I FEED her body and she NOURISHES my soul" It took me a good two weeks to get the hang of breastfeeding. Like a new pair of shoes my boobs had to be worn in boot camp style! (Ouch!)😖 Both Harper & I had to learn the art of attachment and it wasn't easy. I had days I wanted to give up. Thank god for the nipple shield which was a godsend when I needed in those early days when my nips resembled a crime scene 😳. (Highly recommend!) And now when I feed my baby, I marvel at the perfect nourishment my body producers and I am so grateful and honoured I can breastfeed her, especially acknowledging it can be for many a horrible ordeal for a myriad of reasons. Our bodies are extraordinary ladies we must never forget or be made to feel we are doing anything but what our breasts were created to do!🙏🏼❤ #normalisebreastfeeding

'Our bodies are extraordinary ladies we must never forget or be made to feel we are doing anything but what our breasts were created to do,' she concluded, alongside the hash-tag #normalisebreastfeeding.  

The comments were posted alongside a black-and-white snap of the mother breastfeeding Harper.

What an adorable couple and baby!
