And we totally get it
Busy Philipps is many things: actress, social media queen and proud mother to daughters Birdie Leigh and Cricket Pearl.
But unlike some, Busy doesn't pretend to have it all together, refusing to fake it on social media - and we absolutely love her for it.
Gone are the days when women were expected to have motherhood sussed, juggling work and family and still managing to make time for everything else - there's now a new wave of A-list mums - and they're on the mission to debunk some motherhood myths - and it's about time.
In a recent interview with InStyle US, the 38-year-old actress got particularly candid when asked what myth she wanted to get rid of, replying, 'The idea that we all have to be Pinterest-perfect.'
She then went on to explain what 'Pinterest-perfect' meant to her, explaining 'killing it on all fronts, drinking our probiotics, remembering to have Rishi, and putting all these things in our kids' lunches.'
She continued: 'There's a lot of pressure to do all of the things. And we can't do all of the things - I can do a few things, and I've got them nailed. I think that's more realistic.'
'No one’s really doing it perfectly,' explained Reese Witherspoon. 'I just think you love your kids with your whole heart, and you do the best you possibly can.’
Gwyneth Paltrow certainly seemed to agree, explaining 'I never understand why mothers judge other mothers, like, “What do you mean you didn’t breastfeed? What do you mean you didn’t do this?” It’s like, “Can’t we all just be on each other’s side?”’
This new wave of celebrity mums mothers is getting us empowered already.
