Lauren's Instagram post was a photo in which she was posing and smiling with her sister, Heather Burnham, in front of a cactus and sun mural. Lauren captioned the image, "First time out of the house without Alessi and I only cried one time. I'd say it's a win."
Arie insisted he had actually persuaded Lauren to take a brief break from her duties as a new mom.
"It was my idea because she has been working so hard to keep up and quite frankly I commend her for 1. Being an incredible mom and getting the breast-feeding down enough to make sure she had enough while she was at lunch. (Moms know that breast-feeding can be difficult) and 2. So much of being a good parent is making sure you take care of yourself," Arie continued in defense of his wife.
"She wanted a healthy meal with her sister who is in town. I get so frustrated at the comments because she is such a kind soul and takes these comments to heart. Be kind people!... You're doing great momma."
