For Mother’s Day, Draya Michele shared a video of herself giving birth to her son, Jru Scandrick, born April 8th. The video shows the reality star in the process of giving birth. We see a doctor pulling baby Jru out of Draya's womb—the entire thing.
“When I pulled him from my body I’ve never felt so important,” Draya later wrote in a caption, with the hashtags #HappyMohtersDay and #ReachOutAndBringLifeIntoTheWorld
Happy Mother's Day to the women out there. We are created to recreate and that is the biggest gift of all from God. I had a silent delivery because I didn't want to stress my baby and when I pulled him from my body I've never felt so important. I've made mistakes and had some growing to do and this little guy came at the right time. Orlando, thank you for Jru, Tatiana and Taylor,and loving Kniko unconditionally. Yesenia, bestie, godmother, sister....I couldn't have done this without you and Orlando by my side. Thanks to my Dr. And a special #happymothersday to Shonna my nurse. I'm strong. #reachoutandbringlifeintotheworld Jru is a month today, and what a special day it is. ❤️ sorry if this offends anyone. I'll be removing it shortly.
Numerous commenters are praising Draya Michele for sharing this sentimental and powerful moment in her life, while a few feel this perspective of motherhood is oversharing.
