Celebrity moms: They're just like us, in that they're wildly unprepared for first-time parenthood.
Case in point? Maggie Gyllenhaal. After welcoming her first daughter, Ramona, 12 years ago, the actress now admits how caught off-guard she was, specifically when it came to the necessary accessories.
“I didn’t even know I needed a diaper bag,” the actress said during a Facebook Live chat with Italian cookie company Loacker. “Nobody told me and I remember going out with my oldest daughter when she was very young and she pooped and got it everywhere and I just was like, I don’t know what to do. And then, you know, you learn.”
As Ramona grew up, Gyllenhaal said, so did she. “I was 28 when my first daughter was born so I was becoming a grown-up, too, in a way,” she said. “I was figuring out who I [was], what I want and how I want to mother and how that’s different from the ways that I was mothered and how it’s similar.”
