Brittany welcomed Cruz with her husband Jax Taylor, 42, on April 12, 2021. The family of three had traveled to Florida last weekend for Lyndi’s wedding.

Last year Cartwright said it has been ‘hard’ to feel comfortable in her postpartum body, while being compared to the other new moms on Vanderpump Rules.
Speaking with Us Weekly she said, ‘I have friends like Lala [Kent], who literally looks like she doesn’t have a baby two days later.’
‘I don’t even know how, but my body is completely different. It’s going to be a long journey for me to get back to my weight.’

The star also admitted that throughout her pregnancy she ‘got so many mean comments about what [her] weight gain was’ from her social media following.
‘I was being heavily compared to Stassi [Schroeder] and Scheana [Shay] and Lala. … I’ve always been bigger than them, but my weight has always fluctuated and stuff,’ she explained.
‘So it was just hard to see all those comments about my weight stuff when I was healthy and the baby was healthy. There were times when it made me ashamed of how I looked, and I shouldn’t have felt like that,’ she said.
In January, the star spoke with PEOPLE and revealed that she wants to lose ‘at least 30 lbs’ and that losing weight after giving birth has been difficult.

‘I want to be the best version of myself for my son. Since having Cruz, postpartum weight loss has been a struggle and something I’ve been very vocal about with my community.’
She also stressed that she’s ‘still incredibly proud’ of her body but would like to ‘get healthier for myself and my family.’
‘I’d like to get back to feeling like my best self all around, including both mental and physical health,’ she revealed.
Cartwright also mentioned that she still gets negative comments from trolls, ‘and they are still hurtful.’
‘But I remind myself that every single body is powerful and beautiful, and that I’m particularly proud of mine. It gave me Cruz! And then I go and cuddle my son,’ she said.
