Flip through a magazine or scroll Instagram or Twitter and you may feel like you can’t relate to parents one the Hollywood scene. Sure they may have fancy trainers, designer kicks, and the stroller that your costs more than your first car, but you may be surprised how much you have in common with these real life parents. The struggle is real my friends. The struggle is real. Parenting, especially to twins, is tough stuff. Thanks to our famous friends who have fun updating us, we can all enjoy a good laugh and remember we’re all in this together trying to make it to the other side alive (with children who can eventually <in theory> adult, right?).
Without further ado, here are some of the funniest things celebs with twins have to say about parenting:
Up until 2am constructing a table with wooden trains for Gideon and all he wants to do is play with a broom. #MerryXmas
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s twins arrived three weeks after mine were born. I remember buying the People Magazine issue with the first photos of Lopez and her twins in it. There was a nursery filled with white bedding and an enormous chandelier, there was Lopez bottle-feeding a twin while wearing a cocktail dress and a smile, and there were both parents running down a gravel driveway while pushing baby carriages and laughing. I wiped some baby vomit off my shirt, fixed my oily ponytail, and said, “You lie, Lopez. You lie.”
“Our days now are filled with #twin action! Seriously, the 3 of them couldn’t get through the door at the same time. We couldn’t stop laughing. #bliss,” Zoe captioned the shot.
And even the jokesters in the singleton circles can make us laugh:
For our parents of twins plus one or more, Jim Gaffigan manages to sum up the experience pretty well!
So you see, at the end of the day we are all just trying to get all the car seats to fit out the door, with kids who hopefully have all their shoes on, so we can be tortured enjoy throwing away eating a marginal wonderful meal out. Celebs are struggling and joking their way through this whole parenting thing too. They are really just like us (well except that our kids won’t actually have Thor to chase around like Chris Hemsworth’s kids do). Happy parenting!
