Basically, she’s cross-eyed,” the mother-of-two wrote in November 2020. “She’s had it since birth, and we always joked that she was our cross-eyed beauty queen. Turns out it’s a legit thing. I’m not going to lie. There were a lot of mixed emotions (mostly from me, not her), but we put [glasses] on her for the first time today, and she seems relatively indifferent to them. It’s going to take me a minute to get used to seeing my candy bean behind glass, but I’m getting used to glasses right now! Really, she just keeps getting cuter. I love you, sweet cross-eyed beauty queen!
