It's easy to think of celebrities as people who live on a completely different planet from us. And while it is true that celebrity moms don't look like ordinary moms, this can create unrealistic expectations not only of post-baby bodies but also parenthood.

As a new mom it can be very hard to relate to celebrity moms when all you see is perfection. You, on the other hand, can hardly sit down to have a decent meal with your little one around. As for resting and alone time — what is that?

But if there is one thing that unites us all, it's the kids. Because no matter how famous and wealthy a person is, when raising a child, everyone has the same problems. Helping your child find the chocolate you ate last night is one of them. 

But as unglamorous as parenting can be, sometimes all you can do is laugh at the mess around you.

These celebrity moms are enduring a very similar journey and they are just hilarious about it.
