Let’s face it, celebrity moms are nothing like us. They have access to nannies, assistants, hair dressers, and glam squads. They go to red carpet events in sequinned gowns and look fabulous all the time. Most of the time, we view their jet set lifestyles while we sit at our computer in our pyjamas eating potato chips. While they go to film premieres and leave their kids with the nanny, we are busy wiping little butts and yelling at our kids to go to bed so we can finally have a glass of wine and binge watch a show on Netflix.
Yet, thanks to social media, we now get a glimpse into their everyday life and shockingly enough, some celebrity moms actually are just like us. You’d be surprised to learn that they sometimes struggle with the exact same stuff as you do. From balancing their time as working moms to dealing with cellulite, a handful of famous ladies just seem to get it. They give us a peek into their world as mothers and oddly enough, they feel many of the same emotions that normal moms do.
Not only that, they do menial tasks as well, like taking their kiddo to soccer camp or staying up late to fix their kid’s broken toy. It’s super refreshing to see these celebrities let their hair down and show us the raw side of motherhood. Here is a list of 15 Pics That Prove Celeb Moms Are Just Like Us.
15 Jessica Simpson Has Hairy Legs
Singer and fashion mogul, Jessica Simpson, is mom to Maxwell and Ace. This hilarious Instagram post, which features a photo of her legs with little hairs silhouetted in the sunlight, shows us that the rich and famous have flaws too. The caption says: “Missed a spot...” We all know that Simpson is one hot mama and many of us would give our left boob to look as flawless as her. So, it’s comforting to see that she is a human, who grows hair, and sometimes does a bad job shaving.
The fact that she chose to share this little fact with us makes me suspect that she really wants to be friends with all the regular ladies out there. Perhaps deep down inside, she’s not as perfect as she presents herself to be. This photograph reflects the fact that Simpson has a great sense of humor and can laugh at herself.
14 Anna Faris Knows The Struggle Is Real
This Tweet by Anna Faris says it all. She posted a pic of her with her adorable son, Jack, as they rode on a train. The caption says: “Train museum! For the 223rd time!” He can be seen with a huge grin on his face. This post captures how mothers often find themselves doing the same thing over and over. The fact that she is willing to return 223 times is nothing short of a miracle.
All jokes aside, this sweet Tweet makes Faris super real. We all know that she’s rich and famous and could easily afford to pawn her kid off to a nanny who could take Jack to the train museum for the 224th time. It’s really cool that she spends quality time with her kiddo and wants to be the one who takes him to his favorite place, no matter how mind numbing it is.
13 Drew Barrymore Drags Her Daughter To The Salon
Actress Drew Barrymore is mother to two daughters, Olive and Frankie. She has been known to post funny parenting pics to social media. This Instagram post shows us that Barrymore is sympathetic to those moms who drag their kids with them when they get their hair done at the salon. She wrote: "#becomingsheila ok first! Hair. With @traceycunningham1 round one #santaclaritadiet olive is hanging! And Tracy puts conditioner in foils on her for solidarity.”
How cute is it that Tracy takes the time to put conditioner foils on Olive? That’s adorable and proves that Barrymore is every mom who has forced her kid to entertain themselves while their highlights are processed. The fact that what could have been boring has been transformed into a mother/daughter glamor day is super sweet. I also love that Barrymore posted an unflattering photo of herself with foils in her hair. She really is one of us.
12 Hillary Duff Is All Of Us With Cellulite
Actress Hilary Duff became one of us when she posted a diatribe on Instagram with a photo of herself holding her son at the beach. The actress is wearing a swim suit and is letting it all hang out, including the cellulite on her thighs. My favorite part of the novella she wrote in the caption is, “ Ladies, lets be proud of what we've got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better, and unflawed. You guys (you know who you are!) already know how to ruin a good time.”
Duff is my new best friend. This woman has it figured out and it’s so refreshing to see a celebrity break away from the facade of perfection and just be real. Her body is amazing and I’m proud of her for having the body confidence to bare all of her imperfections for the world to see.
11 Busy Phillips Just Wants To Eat Dinner
Actress Busy Phillips shared an Instagram photo of herself at a restaurant with her sleeping daughter, Cricket, on her lap. She wrote: “You know that thing where your 3 year old is dropping her nap but then passes out on the way to dinner so you have to hold her for 45 minutes and try not to drop chips and salsa on her head? That happened to me last night. And aside from a few crumbs, her head stayed clean.”
This is such a familiar moment that all moms experience at one point or another. We’ve all been there, when your kiddo passes out at the most inopportune time. It seems like the minute you sit down to eat, your child needs you in one way or another. I love how she handled the moment with humor and celebrated that her daughter’s head stayed clean. Phillips proved that she is one down-to-earth mama.
10 January Jones Wants A Minute To Chill
Actress, January Jones, presented the plight of every mother who just wants to rest for a minute. She posted a funny pic on Instagram where she is wearing a Hulk Mask and Wolverine blades on her hand. The caption says: "Me - 'Can momma please just lay here for a minute while you play?' Him - 'No. Pick your character and your weapon.'"
She perfectly captured what it’s like to need a break only to have your kid demand that you play with them. Let’s face it, kids are like little parasites that need constant attention and are relentless when it comes to playing. Of course, she can’t just lay there and watch him play; they have crime to fight and people to rescue. It’s somehow comforting to know that even a famous actress is forced to wear a Hulk mask sometimes. She could easily pay someone else to entertain her kid but she chooses not to.
9 P!nk Pumps At Work
Singer, P!nk is a mother of two and is well known for her down-to-earth Instagram posts about motherhood. This photo of P!nk looking at her reflection as she wears a double breast pump is everything. The caption says “And now this #pumpupthejams #mombreak.” The look on her face is priceless, with her wide, shocked eyes. It perfectly expresses how women feel when they find themselves pumping at precarious times.
She has currently been busy and on tour, so this image captures what it means to be a working mom. How many of us know the reality of pumping while we’re at work? This post proves just how relatable P!nk is when it comes to the everyday duties expected from mothers. She may be a pop star and lead a glamorous life, but when it comes right down to it, she’s just like the rest of us moms on the go.
8 Olivia Wilde Feels Every Working Mom
Olivia Wilde is a working mom of two young kids, Otis and Daisy. She’s a highly requested actress and this photo that she posted on Instagram reflects what almost every busy mom endures. In the photograph she is sitting in front of a computer with her baby sleeping on her chest in a sling. She wrote: “Little office mate.” This capture could be any working mom. We all do the best that we can and that means that if your child is fussy but you need to work, you strap that baby on to cuddle and go about your business.
Wilde could certainly afford a nanny to cradle her baby while she works and the fact that she is willing to wear her little one says a lot about who she is. This is a very human moment and definitely earns her respect from all the normal mamas out there.
7 Kourtney Kardashian Has A Normal Friday Night
Reality star, Kourtney Kardashian is mom to Mason, Penelope, and Reign. We all know from watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians that Kourtney is a health nut that is very picky about her food. We’ve also seen her jet set to exotic places and attend the most glamorous parties. So, when she posted a pic to Instagram of her eating junk food in bed with her daughter, Penelope, she proved to the world that she can be a normal mom.
She wrote the caption: “Also Friday night.” It should make us all feel better to know that even Kourtney can enjoy a quiet night at home with her kiddos. Some of the best memories are the chill nights where you lay around in pajamas and eat potato chips. So nice to see that she is typical mother now and again. This post proves that she is totally just like us.
6 Reese Witherspoon Knows Packing With A Little One Is Hard
Actress and mom of three, Reese Witherspoon, posted the best Instagram pic of her looking overwhelmed as she attempted to pack for vacation. Her youngest son, Tennessee, is just a blur as he runs into the frame. She wrote: “This is what a trying to pack for vacation with a little one looks like. #MomLife #WhoCanRelate.” Um, I’m pretty sure that every mom can relate to this post.
She totally captures the exhaustion of attempting to pack for a trip when your kid is around. They make a mess, have demands, run in circles, beg for snacks, and unpack everything you just packed. The best part is we all know that Witherspoon probably has an assistant that could pack her things as well as a nanny to watch her son. So, it’s admirable that she is not too famous to get herself ready for vacation and spend time with her kiddo.
5 Melissa Joan Hart Mends Broken Toys
Melissa Joan Hart is mom to three boys, Tucker, Mason, and Braydon. She is one of a few celebrity moms that just gets it. She posted an honest pic to Instagram of her mending a toy for her son with the caption: “#Momofboys have to stay up late sewing together toys their boys tore apart during the day just to freak them out in the morning when all their toys are staring at them in bed when they wake up.”
Hart is like a breath of fresh air, not only for taking the time to sew up her kiddo’s broken toy but also because she is sadistic enough to find pleasure in freaking her son out. She seems like she knows how to have a good time with her kids. It’s fun to see a starlet getting real on social media, proving to everyday moms that she is one of our people.
4 Tiffany Thiessen Is A Soccer Mom
It’s really cool when we discover that a celebrity mom does everyday, mundane things. Actress, Tiffanie Thiessen, posted a very proud pic of her little girl in a pink soccer uniform and holding a pink soccer ball on her hip. The caption says: “First day of soccer camp. #summer #soccergirl.” This is a post that most of us can relate to, especially if you’re a soccer mom.
How many evenings and weekends do we spend at our kids’ practices and sporting events? How many of us take pride in watching our kiddos kick a ball from the sidelines? It’s encouraging to see that even the rich and famous take time out of their busy schedules to drop their kid off at soccer camp? Thiessen is 100% real for sharing this sweet moment with us. You can tell by the smile on her daughter’s face that she’s just a normal kid.
3 Jessica Biel Knows Nothing Is Hers
Jessica Biel is mom to son, Silas and she is another famous mama that we can count on keeping it real on Instagram. Even though her life is filled with invitations to A-list parties, she gave us a glimpse into her role as a mom. Biel posted a picture to social media of a glamorous pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes with toy dinosaurs all over them. She wrote: “Prehistoric pumps by Dino Blahnik #momlife #partytime #momchella."
Okay, most of us regular people don’t own a pair of swanky Manolo Blahnik heels, but we can all relate to our kids totally taking over our stuff. They have no respect for boundaries and somehow their toys end up all over the place. Kudos to Biel for allowing her son to have access to her fancy stuff. Although, it’s not like she had a say in the matter. That is something that we can all identify with.
2 Kristen Bell Does Her Own Laundry
Another celebrity mom that seems down-to-earth is Kristen Bell. She often shares relatable moments of her life as a wife and mom on social media. When she was seen in a washing machine commercial with her husband, Dax Shepard, a fan took to Twitter to speculate if the two actually did their own laundry. Bell fired back by Tweeting a pic of her holding a basket of clothes and wrote: “I’m working on a batch of dirtys as we speak.”
I sort of love her for posting that pic. For one thing, her hair is a mess and she is wearing zero make up. We all know that most moms look that way when they wash their dirty laundry. Bell proves time and time again with her hilarious social media posts that she is down with regular moms. I think that we all secretly wish that we could be best friends with her.
1 Alyson Hannigan Has Separation Anxiety
Actress, Alison Hannigan, has two daughters, Keeva and Satiana. She posted a candid photo of her little girl about to go to camp for the first time. She wrote an adorable and honest caption that said: “My little 1 is big enough to go to her 1st day of camp! Now what am I suppose to do with 5 hours to myself?!? #cry.”
This raw moment is one that just about every mom has experienced. There are few things more emotional in motherhood than dropping your little one off at camp or school for the first time. Hannigan perfectly expressed how lost we feel as mamas after we drop our kiddo off. I mean, we only spend the first three years of their life watching them every waking moment. I love that Hannigan is attached to her daughter and wrestles with the same human emotions we all do as moms.
