Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick welcomed their first son, Hank, in September, and the Grace and Frankie star revealed on Twitter that she had to leave her infant for the first time earlier this week — which was hard enough without the series of unfortunate events that led to her missing her flight.
“First time leaving baby. It’s only 1 night & doesn’t make sense to fly him back & forth,” Decker tweeted from the plane. “I’m a mess. Moms: booze is my only solution, right? And do you pump in your seat on the flight?? Or the bathroom?? #Spiraling.”
The 29-year-old actress, who didn’t mention the airline, vented that the flight had been delayed twice for mechanical issues and passengers were told they could deboard the plane. “I did. Pumped in the bathroom. Returned 15 min later. Flight closed. Deeeeep breaths,” she wrote.
“WHO LETS PASSENGERS OFF, THEN CLOSES THE GATE SHORTLY AFTER?!? *GULPS WINE* MISSES BABY *SOBS*” Decker continued.
The new mom went on to give a play-by-play of what happened, from her perspective. “Them: ‘We’re sorry for the mechanical delay’ Me: Understandable Them: ‘Another issue. Bringing a mechanic on. Passengers can leave & return'” she tweeted.
“Me: run to pump because we’re already delayed almost 2 hours. I pump in bathroom. Return to gate. Plane is there.. ‘Sorry. Gates closed'” Decker ranted.
In the end, Decker said what transpired left her “livid.”
“I repeat-this is the FIRST TIME leaving my baby. I don’t know why I’m sharing all of this. I’m just livid. And tweeting. Whilst drinking,” she concluded. “As women and as moms we try to do it all but it sure ain’t easy.”
Anyway, all’s well that ends with wine.
