She may always look bubbly and happy, but the 38-year-old star revealed that she had battled postpartum depression.

"Sa kakaiyak ko halos araw-araw, naghubad and posing na lang ako."

Sometimes, "Natutulala sa shock na I have a child.

"Meron ako war shock pag NASA Labas.

"Part ng postpartum ko, di ko ma-explain, I can't stand to be out, parang I wanna scream 'tapos nabibingi ako, gusto ko umuwi agad sa bahay.

"Pero slowly fighting it over."

She has yet to fully adjust to her transition from being pregnant to being a mom.

"Nasanay ako na buntis, still adjusting. 'Tapos ngayon, I'm alone, back to myself again, slowly regaining all my hormones and confidence para sa anak ko, I want her to see me ok, so I can take care of her.

"Matagal-tagal ko din di magawa mag-selfie video dito na ako lang mag-isa , na wala na tummy, baby @alexandriamagallanes."

Rufa Mae and Trevor named their baby girl, Alexandria Athena.

On one hand, part of her recovery was losing the pregnancy weight.

From 187 pounds, she lost 40 pounds in more than a month.

She posted her most recent photo and wrote, "Wow amazing, pag ganito ang lagay e di forget na ang emote at postpartum, mag-ready na ako sa beach this summer 2017!"

Rufa Mae added, referring to the vertical line on her tummy, "May linea nigra pa ako sa tummy ko, I wonder when mawawala yang lanugo or dark spot ko sa tummy!

"Sana soon, by the way, my neck, armpit, singit ko pala namuti na din na parang libag lang na natanggal every time I shower!"

But for most part of her journey as a mom, Rufa Mae is grateful.

"Kung alam mo lang, ang tagal ko nangarap magka-anak at asawa, never ko naisip na kaya ko pala.

"Thank you po Panginoon for hearing my prayers, for giving me a healthy and kind baby girl, di po siya iyakin, comedienne din siya like me, gusto niya lagi sabihin, 'hello world! magandang umaga, todo na to Mama, go go go friends, yes I love you all!'

"Sarap maging ina, last summer I prayed so harder to have a child, now I have a daughter, she is alive and [kicking], ako naman, slowly recovering!

"Kailangan pa ako ng baby ko kaya eto, hands on to my little princess!"

She also didn't miss thanking her husband for "every thing."
