Sofia Andres has been living her responsibilities as a mom, with “love and a deep sense of purpose."
In her recent Instagram post on Monday, Sept.11, the 25-year-old star shared a photo of her face with a pink paper cup on her head. According to the actress, the photo, which was shot at a worm's eye view, does not show her "best angle."
Sofia later proceeds to explain that, just like the photo, love is not always picture-perfect. Her pregnancy with her firstborn Zoe, for one, took her by surprise, but she never regrets the things she discovered along the way.
"I just wanna let u know that love is often portrayed as a fairytale, with perfect moments and flawless relationships. but in reality, love is not meant to be perfect. it’s messy, challenging, and filled with ups and downs," the celebrity mom began her post.
"It took me by surprise when I became pregnant at a young age, but I will never regret the moment I discovered I was going to be a mom."

The Iron Heart star shared how overwhelming it gets at times to be a partner and a mom simultaneously because of the sacrifices she has to endure. However, she made sure to counter them with her family's support and the essence of being together with them.
"Becoming a parent brought a sense of responsibility that I never anticipated. it’s a role that requires endless strength and dedication. but it's also a role that brings immense joy and fulfillment," she continued.
"Being a partner and a mom simultaneously can be overwhelming at times. It requires balance, sacrifice, and learning how to navigate the different roles we play in our loved ones' lives. but through it all, I've come to understand that love is not about perfection .. It's about being there for one another, supporting each other, and cherishing the imperfect moments that make our relationships real."
While Sofia admits that her journey "may not resemble a fairytale," she wouldn't have it any other way as "it is filled with love, growth, and a deep sense of purpose."
"I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world," she added. "Being a partner and a mom has taught me the true meaning of unconditional love and has made me a stronger and more compassionate person."
Replying to the post, Sarah Lahbati said, “& this is why you are so blessed and loved. 🤍”
Fans were also quick to express their support for Sofia, with one user commenting, "You are truly a beautiful person with beautiful insight about life and love. Keep sharing your thoughts and true feelings and emotions. ❤️"
"I admire your dedication ❤️" another one quipped, as others sent the actress virtual hugs and kisses.
Sofia took on her mom responsibilities when she gave birth to Zoe at the age of 21 in 2019. Zoe is her first child to her long-time boyfriend Daniel Miranda.
The couple had been together for six years and have been embracing the life of being doting parents to Zoe.
