Being a mom is a crazy ride, and for some mothers it's especially hard-fought. That's why this year for Mother's Day, NASCAR superstar Kyle Busch's wife Samantha opened up about the journey she and her husband went through to get to their little bundle of joy. 

“I’m so blessed to be his mommy,” she wrote on Instagram. “I can’t believe my baby is going to be 2 this week.”

“We lucked out,” Samantha says in a new interview with ESPN. “We both sucked. [The doctor said,] ‘You don’t have any eggs, you don’t have any sperm, you guys are not having a baby on your own. IVF will work, and that’s the only way you guys are having a baby.’ I’m a doer and a planner. ‘OK, perfect, what’s next?'”

Though she talks about it freely now, Samantha acknowledged that it's a much more painful experience when you're going through it. 

“When you come out the other side of it with a baby, you can easily talk about it [with humor]. ‘Oh, my ovaries are broken. Kyle’s sperm sucks.’ It’s easy at that point,” she says in the interview. “When you’re going through it, that’s when it’s hard. That’s when it’s delicate. If somebody said, ‘What’s wrong with your ovaries?’ I probably would have jumped across the table at them. You’re in such a terrible spot where you’re already like, ‘Why can’t I have a baby. How come everybody else can get pregnant so easy?’ When you’re going through it, it’s much harder to talk about.”

Thankfully it all worked out and they get to be parents to a beautiful little one. Busch and his wife are just one of countless couples who have struggled with infertility and difficulty getting pregnant, so we love how brave Samantha was to open up about the whole battle.
