Isabel had previously stated in another Story that she was "expecting the postpartum period to be a lot harder for me since I struggle with depression and anxiety so much in the past.

"But I had a relatively stable pregnancy and now the asme goes for postpartum…"


Isabel and Jacob welcomed their first child in November 2021, however, they have yet to show the little one's face- something his grandpa Matt doesn't exactly agree with.

Despite calls to share his face with fans, the couple have stuck to their guns, even clapping back at some trolls.

Previously, Isabel posted a photo of her newborn son on social media experiencing his first snow.

Mateo was held up to the outdoors in an adorable teddy bear onesie, although his face was concealed as Isabel held him so the back of his head was facing the camera.

One troll soon commented: "Just turn him around, what's the problem?"

Jacob was quick to defend his wife's decision as he clapped back: "You."


While Mateo's face has been kept private, Isabel has been open about the day he was welcomed into the world.

She revealed in her post that his birth didn't go according to plan, writing: "Our birth story didn't go as planned; as we know life rarely ever does.

"These past few weeks have show me what true surrender and trust looks like. I have never been more hands on my knees afraid and I have also never known… a love so big.

"Seeing Jacob as a father is the most heartwarming thing I have ever witnessed. Being a mother is the most myself I have ever felt."

Isabel will soon be sharing her whole "painful" birth story with fans, as she's been writing about it and has called it "very cathartic to get out."
