The comments came after she shared a video on her social media account on Sunday, showing her breastfeeding her five-week-old. Von D wrote: "Getting some of that vitamin Double D! Sunshine party! We try and spend daily time with Leafar outside in our front yard — especially now that he’s hit his first mental development leap at age 5 weeks. His heightened sense of alertness, smell and touch make going outside such a treat for him [and for us]. So much magical bliss."



 

One fan commented on the post admitting her fears she would never become pregnant following two miscarriages and she was really happy to see the video. "I may never be able to have a baby (I’ve miscarried twice) but seeing this is beautiful and makes me cry happy tears," the follower said.

Von D was quick to help and provide moral support to the follower. She replied: "I miscarried twice before we had Baby Leafar. Never say never!" She welcomed her son in December and shared the happy news with her seven million Instagram followers.

She wrote: "Meet our beautiful baby boy, Leafar Von D Reyes. Thank you to all our beloved friends+family, fans+followers for your patience in us announcing his long-awaited arrival! To be honest, my husband @prayers and I want to take the next 40 days [the 4th trimester] to focus on the baby and our amazing relationship transitioning into amazing parenthood - so, please excuse us if we’re not on here as much for a little while.  Just know we love you all and thank you for all the words of love+support! 🖤"

The couple was married in an intimate Beverly Hills ceremony in February last year before throwing an extravagant goth-infused wedding in early June.
