It’s not a secret that motherhood is no easy feat. There’s the neverending lack of sleep, going through a couple T-shirts a day (baby spit-up is definitely a thing), cleaning up after baby almost 24-7, running a household and constantly having to multitask

Then there’s society’s obsession of creating a picture-perfect life on social media. Here are a few moments where celebrity moms got hilariously candid about the reality of motherhood.
