Stars. They're just like us. Especially when they're covered in something sticky that came from someone tiny. Being a mom remains the great equalizer--and, let's be honest, pretty much the greatest thing ever. In honor of Mother's Day, here are some thoughts from nine celebs who totally get it.    


Tina Fey on babies

"Ah, babies! They're more than just adorable little creatures on whom you can blame your farts.”

Jennifer Connelly on morning sickness

"I had to stand in front of my refrigerator, which was open, dipping pretzels in cream cheese and stuffing them in my mouth. If I did that, I was good. Otherwise I was nauseous."


Amy Poehler on mom guilt

"There is an unspoken pact that women are supposed to follow. I am supposed to act like I constantly feel guilty about being away from my kids. (I don't. I love my job.) Mothers who stay at home are supposed to pretend they are bored and wish they were doing more corporate things. (They don't. They love their job.)"


Sandra Bullock on raising a boy

"He's all dude. He's just a dude. And, I'm learning a lot about being a dude! Apparently when you sleep, your hand needs to be down your pants. I didn't know that as a woman! What are we doing wrong as women...should we be doing that?"


Blake Lively on newborns

"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.”

Olivia Wilde on “body after baby”

"I like beer. And pizza. And, these two ingredients are not found in the purely fictional book I like to call How to Look Like You Never Made a Human: A Guide to Socially Acceptable Motherhood."


Julie Bowen on not romanticizing parenthood

"At the time I only had one kid, but with two on the way, I was always hearing talk about golden mystical baby things and precious time. And I was like, ‘Who the f*ck are you talking to?!’ This isn’t golden and mystical. If you could see me naked, you would weep. I weep on a regular basis. Children are like crazy, drunken small people in your house.”


Kate Hudson on me time

"Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award. And some days I find myself doing strange things that don't have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realize I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children."
