    "Since, we are embarking on a new exciting part of our lives, we wanted to marry before the baby was born. Planning a wedding is a stressful business, too, so we thought it was sensible to get it out of the way before we were up to your necks in diapers," said Bruna.

    Bruna shared this adorable photo with her baby and wrote alongside, "Someone once told me my heart was about to be "enlarged," and that's truly what it feels like. There is so much love and emotion that my heart must have enlarged in order to fit it all in. When your baby smiles right at you or cuddles up to you while you sway him in your arms or the warmth it stirs within you is overwhelming. Watching her or even just seeing her sleeping face after a brief absence from her is like the most special gift I could have ever asked for.
    And so, while any amount of words can never do new motherhood justice, my goal is to try to stop and appreciate the wonder of it all. I have been amazed at my body's life-sustaining abilities, at how perfectly crafted my daughter is, at how quickly and vibrantly she grows and at how my faith has equipped me to keep up. What's it like to be a new mom?
    It's downright amazing.."
