“He is in great hands and is already showing tremendous improvements,” the former Netflix personality said last month. “Ace hasn’t gotten to meet his brother yet, but we are so excited for them to grow up so close in age and become forever best friends.”

“Ace did amazing,” she captioned a social media slideshow. “He’s just curious about baby brother. Still clingy to momma but that’s nothing new lol. I’m trying to include him in everything with the baby (without any harm to Axton, obvi) and I think he’s appreciating it because after about five minutes he’s crawling onto his next adventure and the baby is old news. Before I met these two, I didn’t know I wanted to be a mom to a boy. My heart is so full.”
