Miranda Sings Invites Moms to Show the Reality of Parenting With Funny, Candid Shots

By Pippa Raga

YouTube star Miranda Sings (AKA Colleen Ballinger) recently welcomed a baby, Flynn Timothy, into her life. The comedian has rebranded significantly since giving birth — instead of constantly sarcastic, egotistical, and quirky humor, her current Twitter bio just reads "mom."

And that's a good thing. Because the Haters Back Off actress is now an advocate for new moms everywhere and a recent viral post she made has started an important conversation on the internet. "I see a lot of moms online who portray a perfect, easy lifestyle," she shared on the platform.

"But this is a more realistic version of what motherhood looks like," she continues. "I wish more people would show their reality instead of the most perfect version of themselves online. Cuz the messy stuff is beautiful too."

The mirror selfie she shared labeled "baby barf," "leaking milk," "baby pee" and "extra skin and weight from pregnancy" — far from the glamorous keywords you might more readily associate with content posted by online influencers.
