Teddi Mellencamp's love knows no bounds, especially when it comes to her newborn, Dove.

The "Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills" star shared some adorable snaps of baby dove in the arms of her family and herself on Monday. Dove was welcomed into the world on February 25 and mommy is so proud of the beautiful girl. Teddi shared pics of her hubby, Edwin Arroyave cradling Dove as well as her two older kids, Cruz, 5, and Slate, 7.

"How do you spell love?” said Piglet. “You don’t spell it, you feel it.” said Pooh. 💕#dovelove," Teddi quoted Winnie The Pooh in the caption of her post.

Baby's First Walk


Earlier in the day, Teddi took Dove on her first walk!

“Dove, I have some exciting news!” Mellencamp told her daughter in the cute clip posted to her social media accounts. “The doctor told Mommy she could go on a walk today outside, and your pediatrician said you could come with me. I just have to keep you covered and we can do a nice walk outside!”

She shared a cute video of herself pushing a covered stroller to her Instagram story and she seemed happy to get out of the house. Teddi showed off the chic workout clothes she donned for the walk and detailed what she wore underneath them.

"Compression panties on and we ready to go," she joked with her millions of fans.

Mellencamp has been extremely open about the whole postpartum experience and her fellow moms can totally relate.

Keeping it 100%


Teddi is doing her best to make her "postpartum reality" less taboo and while the miracle of childbirth is beautiful, she recently detailed some complications that are not so pretty.

"My Day 3 postpartum reality: It is unbelievable, unconditional love. It is an incredibly powerful bond that Dove and I share. It is tears of joy watching Edwin light up when he’s with her. It is bursting with pride watching my older kids gently, lovingly & eagerly jump into their new found big sibling roles," Teddi said before getting into the challenges she is currently facing.

"It is very little sleep because, let’s be real, is 'sleep when the baby is sleeping' actually a thing? It is knowing that feeling delirious will be the new norm for a while. It is humbling, to say the least - switching from the mesh “mom diaper” with ice from the hospital to high waisted compression panties at home. It is drinking way too much prune juice with crushed ice because you are anxiously awaiting the first post-baby 💩. "

Mellencamp, who is all about body positivity and being healthy, expressed that she is coming to terms with her post-baby body emotionally and shared her feelings with fans.

"It is embracing and loving this body of mine. It is lots of laughs when Cruz asks why my stomach hasn’t deflated. It is a flood of emotions when multiple lactation specialists tell you that only your right breast is able to breast feed the baby due to scarring on the left," she explained.

"It is trying to calm your mind when you are continuously running all the hypotheticals of every scenario in your head. It is a constant reminder to live in the moment and feel all the highs and lows that a new baby brings. It is the simultaneous notion of wanting to slow down while still feeling the need to rearrange and organize the entire house. It is doing your best to not compare your journey to anyone else’s. It is overwhelming gratitude for each friend and family member who shows up without judgement, only to bring you love & food. It is a constant roller coaster & I wouldn’t change it for the world."

Teddi ended her powerful statement by declaring her undying love for Dove.

"My baby girl is here and I love her more than words can say. We each have our own journey and this is mine 💕🕊 #postpartum."
