By The Weekly | November 9, 2017

Sure, they might have the glitz, the glamour and the bulging bank balances to boot, but these celebrity mums prove they’re completely relatable when it comes to their bubs. From Pink to Reese Witherspoon to Tina Fey, these celeb mums tell it like it is:


1.Blake Lively
“Having a baby is just living in the constant unexpected,” said Blake Lively. “You never know when you’re gonna get crapped on or when you’re gonna get a big smile or when that smile immediately turns into hysterics. It might be like living with a drug addict.”

Hands up who’s guilty of this mummy-misdeed via Busy Phillips?! “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!”
