WHO anchor Erin Kiernan took a picture of herself sans makeup with her baby Michael Francis and posted it on Facebook with the caption, “I used to think I knew what exhausted was. Hilarious.”

The Des Moines NBC affiliate reports someone posted Kiernan’s anchor head shot, complete with make up and lighting, next to the au natural shot and wrote “This doesn’t even look like the same person!”

She responded by saying “Newsflash! These ARE NOT pictures of the same person.”

The woman on the left is well rested, spent two hours on her hair and makeup, had a professional photographer take her picture (and photoshop it, I’m sure), and is in the “glowing” second trimester of pregnancy.
The woman on the right got two hours of sleep (maybe), hadn’t looked in the mirror, took a selfie, did not put a filter on it and is covered with spit up and drool from a teething and very crabby baby.
You are an idiot if you think these are pictures of the same woman.

“I love that you are so honest and willing to share that you are a normal person just like the rest of us,” said one commenter. “You don’t pretend to be someone that you are not and you don’t hide the fact that your life is not always glamorous.”
