BEING a mum can be stressful at the best of times, but one young mum has a hard job on her hands, since she already has three at just 21-years-old.
Vanity, who comes from a large family herself, with her mum having 10 children, had her first baby, Greyson, at 18.
She then gave birth to her second, Nalia the following year and third, TJ aged 20.
Now 21, the mum doesn’t sugar-coat the reality of being a parent to three under three.
In a clip she recently shared on TikTok, Vanity help up her youngest child and mimed along the a viral sound saying ‘Waking up in the morning, thinking about so many things. I just wish things would get better.’
The text over the video reads: “My mood when I found out I was pregnant with her eight weeks after giving birth.”
The mum even explained in the caption that her youngest and middle child are the same age at one point each year.
“Yes I got pregnant a month later, they’re 11 months apart. They’ll be the same age for two weeks,” she said.
After sharing her story on social media, some people trolled Vanity for not having a break between kids.
“Should’ve gotten a ring before becoming another baby mum,” one person slammed
But she hit back: “They all have the same dad. I’m grown I do what I want.”
This isn’t the first time Vanity has had to defend herself from mean trolls.
After posting a similar clip with her kids people weren’t so kind to the young mum.”
“When you realise you’re really 21 with three kids all under three,” she captioned the video.
“Kids having kids,” one person quipped.
Another chimed in: “I don’t understand why you get so offended because nobody wants that many kids.”
And someone else commented: “Three kids before you’re 23 – how sad.”
Before becoming a stay-at-home mum, Vanity attended cosmetology school, but insists that she’s happy with her current role and wouldn’t change anything.
She hit back: “This is what my body was made for…making kids and taking care of them!”
However, the mum got more candid speaking to Truly, she said: “I needed people to talk to and be there for me.
“Sometimes I do feel like I’m missing out considering that I’m 21 with three kids because most kids my age are in college and partying and living life getting to know themselves.
And on the topic of social media, Vanity confessed it does all get a bit much sometimes.
She said: “The judgement that I have from online trolls is really ridiculous.
“I ‘should’ve got an abortion’, she ‘looks slow’ and I ‘need to call animal control’.
“It kinda broke my heart a little bit.
“I don’t know how they can talk about a baby – a baby that they don’t even know.
“Sometimes I do regret posting them online because people out there are weird and harsh.”
