In a heartbreaking end to the her message, she added: "I hate myself. I wish I was super confident."
Shelby, who recently asked fans for advice as her skin is "getting her down", followed this up with a short video of her son Abel rocking in a chair, which she wrote over: "Thank god for my beautiful baby boy," with a praying hands emoji and a blue heart emoji.
It comes as Shelby was recently forced to defend her baby son Abel after a vile troll commented on his appearance and called him "ugly".

The person in question called baby Abel the "ugliest effin thing I've seen." Shortly after her post, Shelby took to her Instagram stories to address the situation and to thank her supporters for reporting the account.'

"I wouldn't let trolling bother me usually, it does, but I've learned to deal with it. I just block and ignore. But what I will not ignore is the fact that someone has written that about my innocent baby boy and I think it's disgusting," she said.
"Whoever is behind that account, I probably know who it is, regardless if it isn't, you are a disgusting human being."
