Hun er kendt for at kaste nyt lys over, hvad skønhed også kan være. 

Som plus size-model kæmper Tess Holliday for at rykke på de skønhedsidealer, vi kender i dag. 

Ved siden af jobbet som model er den 31-årige kvinde også mor til en 11-årig dreng og en 8 måneder gammel søn. 

Og lige netop livet som mor til en baby har fået hende til at dele et ærligt billede på sin Instagram. 

Her ser man den smukke kvinde på et grædende selfie, hvor hun under billedet fortæller om sønnens manglende vilje til at sove. 

- Det her er virkeligheden ved at være mor. Jeg har været oppe siden klokken 3 for at få Bowie til at sove, men hver gang jeg lægger ham ned, vågner han igen, skriver hun. 

Billedet er blevet taget godt imod af mødre i hele verden. I skrivende stund har det fået mere end 73.000 likes, og kvinderne deler støttende kommentarer til den frustrerede mor og model. 

- Du er min inspiration. Jeg kæmper også selv med livet som mor nogle gange, skriver en kvinde blandt andet. 

Tess Holliday kæmper for at vise, at store piger også er smukke. 

Men det job og den kamp kan være lidt svær, når man ikke får den søvn, man har brug for. 

- Presset for at se godt ud bliver bare for meget i dag, skriver hun således til sit billede: 

This is the reality of being a mom. I've been up since 3 am, & every time I get Bowie to sleep & try to lay him down, he wakes up. He is teething & has no clue I have to work today, & most days I can work 15 hour days, take care of both boys & put some lipstick on & deal with it. Most days I drink my coffee & smile at every little thing he does thinking it's the best thing in the world, but not today. I've been crying for nearly two hours, & I'm crying as I write this. I've reached my limit, exceeded it to be honest. My confidence has taken a blow with this birth & it wasn't until this morning I realized why. The pressure of "looking good" for a living is too much today. When your face is breaking out from the hormones of breastfeeding + total exhaustion from lack of sleep, bags under your eyes, patchy red skin & to top it off no energy to work out or leave my bed.. how do you do it? How do you feel confident in your skin & feel like you aren't letting the client down by showing up exhausted & disheveled? Yes, I chose a career based on my looks & I'm the first one to say that beauty isn't what should drive you, it's certainly not what motivates me. As a working mom in an industry that's as critical as mine, where is the line? The balance? The compassion? Is any career understanding when you show up at negative 10% because your kids wouldn't let you sleep & you want to hide under your covers & cry? Not many. I hope one day that changes & society views mothers as the flawed human beings we are that are just trying to keep our shit together like everyone else. #effyourbeautystandards #workingmoms #disruptperfectmomsyndrome
