While speaking on her Instagram Stories to her 141K followers, Lavena answered a Q&A from her fans about life as a mum. 

One fan asked her, ‘How’s the age gap? Thinking about trying for baby #2, not sure how long to wait’

Back responded by explaining, “It’s going well and I feel like we are finally kind of getting into the groove of things”. 

“Don’t get me wrong guys, there are days and hours and minutes where I’m like , ‘Oh my God, this is intense’, where I feel overstimulated”.

She went on to speak about having to juggle aspects of her daily routine by saying, “I was literally just trying to cook dinner and film content at the same time and manage two children- that was like brain overload”.

“But then there’s just days where their bond is so beautiful but yeah you do have to be ready. I think it’s definitely intense so you do have to be ready for baby number two if it’s a close gap”.

Another fan asked the former reality TV star, ‘Have you taken both babies out on your own yet? How have you found it?’

She revealed, “Putting this video together made me teary ! 2 under 2 is not easy but seeing my babies bond grow each day makes everything worth it, forever grateful x”.
