Candidly speaking on their experiences as mothers, these 5 celebrities have revealed the things they love about being a parent, how they have learnt to cope and balance it all, and why it’s completely worth it to see a smile on their kid’s face. Sharing some beautiful words about their time as a mother so far, these stars have opened up on why they’re so happy to have their family.
Drew loves how simple it can be: “My favourite thing about being a mom is just what a better person it makes you on a daily basis. Every morning when I wake her up, the endgame is, ‘Can I get her to smile?’ And that puts me in a good mood. It’s definitely a different way to live—and a much better one.”
Jennifer loves being able to have a fresh start as a parent: “The absolute [greatest] thing about being a parent is that every day is a fresh start. You always can say, ‘Today we’re going to try this!’ And, if it goes horribly, you can say, ‘Today we’re throwing that out, and we’re trying this!’ That’s part of what I like about being a mom in general.”
Kate finds motherhood gives her strength: “There’s something really empowering about going, ‘Hell, I can do this! I can do this all!’ That’s the wonderful thing about mothers, you can because you must, and you just DO.”
Nicole says she has had many different motherhood experiences: “I’ve experienced adoption. I’ve experienced birth with a genetic child. I’ve experienced surrogacy with a genetic child. I speak openly about it because so many of my friends are discussing it. It’s important for other women to go, ‘I get it!’ ”
Tina thinks what women are able to balance in their lives is amazing: “I think every working mom probably feels the same thing: You go through big chunks of time where you’re just thinking, ‘This is impossible—oh, this is impossible.’ And then you just keep going and keep going, and you sort of do the impossible.”
