Rumer Willis is taking a moment to reflect as she celebrates her birthday.

On Friday, the daughter ofBruce WillisandDemi Moore shared a photo and an introspective message on Instagram, capturing just how different her life looks as she turns 35.

“This is 35. Ridiculously sunburnt and feeding my Lou,” she began the post, which featured a candid snapshot of her shirtless as she breastfed her 4-month-old daughter, Louetta.

She went on to recount how her special day looked just one year ago. “Last year on my birthday I had just found out I was pregnant with Lou and I was so tired and kinda nauseous and I hadn’t really told anyone,” she wrote. “So many new sensations and changes going on within me. I was nervous and excited and felt so many tiny little butterflies in my belly and in deep wondering of who this little soul may be.”

Now, as she kicks off another year, Willis is happy to have little Lou by her side. “To have her here now in my arms on this next trip around the ☀️ I feel every birthday wish I have ever had has come true tenfold,” she continued, touching on how much becoming a mother has changed her.

“This past year has come with so much growth, so many challenges and fears to overcome but right alongside more joy than I could ever imagine. I truly learned what it is to surrender into the deepest core of myself and find a strength and a primal power I didn’t know I had,” she explained.

Willis said she’s fully embracing “this new version” of herself, and it feels right. “I feel more comfortable in my skin. More confident than I ever imagined,” she noted. “I have known for so many years that being a mother would bring me into alignment with a divine purpose I have always felt and to known that my intuition was right has given me a trust within myself that I am so deeply grateful for.”

She added one final note: “I have never felt more beautiful in my whole life,” she declared, adding the hashtag #hotmomERA.
