In Features, Motherhood, Stories by Gemma Dawkins

Celebrity motherhood quotes aren’t always super relatable – if you don’t have a 32 bedroom mansion, a personal chef and a fleet of nannies, do you really have that much in common?

Here are 13 of our fave celebrity motherhood quotes on everything from the mama juggle to the newborn sleep deprivation.
