New mum Tessa James keeps it real

It's only been a few weeks since Tessa James and NRL star husband Nate Myles welcomed their first baby into the world.

Now it seems the 26-year-old has been keeping it real since the birth of their bub, going makeup free and wearing a casual black ensemble in a recent Instagram post.

The new mum took to her Insatgram on Tuesday posting a full-length snap of her amazing post-baby figure, standing in a juice bar called Moon Juice in California.

"Too many options," she captioned the snap, which showed her standing in front of a counter full of fresh juices.

The refreshing snap comes after Tessa confirmed last week that she welcomed her first child.

She took to her Instagram account last week posting a pic of her husband Nate pushing a pram and quoted Winnie the Pooh in the caption which read, "As soon as I saw you I knew a grand adventure was about to happen".

Tessa and Nate have chosen to keep tight-lipped on too many details about their new baby.

But the one departure from their private bubble was Tessa's pregnancy shoot with Elle magazine, where she spoke about her excitement at welcoming her new arrival.

"Being pregnant is a miracle because growing a baby, it's pretty incredible when you think about it," she said.

"When you haven't had children and you see mums and kids everywhere you just think that's normal. But when it happens to you, you're like, 'Oh my gosh, all these women have done this? Wow'."
