Vanessa Simmons gave birth to her baby girl Ava Marie Wayans a few weeks ago, and she couldn't be happier about life as a new-found mother.  Vanessa  received a vast amount of support from her family, friends, and many fans throughout her pregnancy, and now she's decided to give back to her supporters by giving them a glimpse into her private life as a mom as she cares for her daughter.  

Instagram is the way to go these days when it comes to sharing one's intimate moments with the world, and that is exactly what Vanessa did, as she posted a few photos of her and Ava together.  In one, she is feeding her baby, while in another Vanessa highlights Ava's cute sleeping arrangement.
