These 12 Celebrity Mom's Totally Crush It When It Comes To Fighting Against "Perfect Mom Pressure"

Celebrity |


Motherhood; It's supposedly one of life's greatest blessings... if not the single greatest. Now I'm not saying that it isn't, oh no, far from that... all I'm saying is, that for a supposed "blessing", it can also be a heck of a lot of freakin' work. Rewarding? Yes. But difficult? Oh, incredibly so.

editing a photo of her 5-month-old baby girl??

And it doesn't matter who you are, either... even celebrity mothers feel the Perfect Mome pressure day in and day out... in fact, they may even feel it more so than us because, well, let's face it, they can't even seem to sneeze in the privacy of their own homes without the entire world hearing about it 0.5 minutes later from the damn press.

not afraid to show that yes, they can be tired, they can wear no makeup and they are most certainly not

ANYWAYYYY, luckily, there is a movement brewing among those celebrity moms out there and these fabulous women are no longer supporting this pressure and actually choose to be sincere when it comes to talking about being a Mom (I know, what a WILD concept!).

SO scroll down and prepare to feel not only inspired but more importantly so... slightly less pressured! Happy days!

12. Olivia Wilde

“I call this hairstyle, ’Keep the kid alive’. Products you’ll need: sweat, string cheese, diaper rash cream, a chewed up crayon, snot, and an enthusiastic spritz of panic.”

Olivia happily reveals to her huge Instagram following exactly how a typical mother usually looks after spending one long day with her young children, and I LOVE IT!

I hear it's the totally IN hairstyle among all the Moms these days. So stylish yet manageable, the perfect combination!

11. Jessica Alba

“You realize that you’ve become a mother when you understand that you’ll never get enough sleep again.”

Jessica Alba has an even fuller plate in her home, as she's currently a mother to 3 genetically-gifted young children; her daughters are just 11 and 8 years old whereas her youngest child - her son - is just 2 years old... what an age difference eh!)

But just get a load of those happy, smiling faces! Such a beautiful family.

10. Hilary Duff

super weird

Anyway, Hillary gave birth to her second child, a daughter, pretty recently in 2018.

To honor the occasion, she posted the incredible moment on her Instagram page via a truly heartwarming video which shows the first incredible few minutes of her new daughters life. No glamour whatsoever... just complete and utter sincerity and happiness and of course, the miracle of life.

9. Alyssa Milano

Charmed,  has 2 kids herself: her son Milo, who is 8 years old and her daughter Elizabella (which is a completely BEAUTIFUL name, by the way),

Alyssa's story is very, very important.

The actress actually suffered a miscarriage back in 2009, and as if that wasn't upsetting enough, she then suffered through postpartum depression after she gave birth to her son Milo. Fortunately for us, and the rest of the women all across the globe, was brave enough to talk about the difficult topic of her own experiences in order to help to support millions of other women who may feel like they're suffering alone.


8. Reese Witherspoon

“How do I do it all with 3 kids and a full-time job? This is how,”

However, Witherspoon definitely knows how to be happy and enjoy motherhood as well, even when she isn't running on 8 full hours of sleep! And just check out how effortless she makes it look!

7. Chrissy Teigen

And here we have not only one of my favorite celebrity Moms, but also one of my favorite celebrities in general - the fabulous, ever-so-hilarious, always insanely honest Chrissy Teigen. And in 2018, Chrissy Teigen and her equally amazing husband John Legend became parents for the second time.

It's clear to see from her hilarious posts of both Twitter and Instagram that the model truly enjoys being a mom and really doesn't see any reason whatsoever to edit her photos if they're amazing just as they are... which, let's be honest, they ARE!

6. Hilaria Baldwin

Now you see THIS is how the mother who has many young children take a selfie. Usually, it needs to be done during a 0.5 second period before they start running off in 5 different directions all at the same time.

The Instagram page of the wife of Alec Baldwin and yoga instructor, Hilaria Baldwin, is probably the best reminder that being a celebrity doesn’t mean anything when it comes to happiness, because happiness always looks the same... and it always looks like this.

5. Robyn Lawley

“the best part of having a kid is getting to be a kid again with her daughter.”

This is the Australian model with her adorable little daughter, Ripley.

4. Zoe Saldana


Zoe Saldana amazingly has 3 children; Her twins Cy and Bowie, and of course her youngest, Zen... which FYI is one of the coolest names I've ever heard for a child ever.

And as you can clearly see, their celebrity mom is truly, truly proud of them all.

3. Drew Barrymore

“We live in a society where it’s common to say things like, ’Wow, how amazing she looks only 2 weeks after giving birth.’ I don’t want to be a part of it, it’s hell. I never wanted

I have always, always, ALWAYS had a huge girl-crush on Drew Barrymore. There isn't one film of hers I haven't liked, and she's just one of those celebrity women you can always count on keeping it real. Drew also has 2 children of her very own.

2. Pink

not feel like she needed to lose the weight, which is too damn freakin' right! She also admitted that she felt herself and furthermore advises all

Another favorite lady of mine is Pink and she's the mother of 2 cool-a*s children.

1. Liv Tyler

And last but by no means least, the daughter of Steven Tyler and Elven queen herself, Liv Tyler. She and her husband David have 4 (yep, FOUR!) children together.

Without sugar coating anything, the actress admits that it truly is difficult to be a mother of 4... heck, I find it freakin' difficult to be the mother on one sometimes! But it has always been her dream to have a big ole' family - and gosh, don't they make the most beautiful children!?

Well, folks, what do you think? Because I KNOW you know we've all felt like this at some point. What's your source of Perfect Mom Pressure? What is it that makes you question your Momming abilities? Let me know in the comments! And don't forget to share this with your friends and family so they know that they aren't alone and we're all here to support each other! AAx
