The things that make you a mum

Madonna

‘I try to be balanced, to be humorous and thoughtful. But I’m strict!’

 

Edith Bowman

‘Not being able to use wipes would actually stop me going out. Bums, faces, table tops – they can handle it all.'

 

Lisa Kudrow

‘I thought I was going to wake up and know exactly what to do, and I was very disappointed when I didn’t.’

 

Holly Willoughby

‘We had this pipe dream once where we’d move out of London and we’d have a mustard and jam factory!’

 

Naomi Watts

‘I feel like I have probably lost a good 75% of my brain power. I say it halved itself and it halved itself again. It’s not just the sleep deprivation, it’s the breastfeeding – I call it the lactose lobotomy.’

 

Celine Dion

‘It’s pretty amazing how we can survive with no sleep!’

 

Claudia Winkleman

‘I haven’t lost the weight. I couldn’t give a toss, I’m allergic to exercise. Sweating is bad. Sitting is good.’

 

Zoe Ball

‘I will not deny myself my treats, otherwise that makes a miserable mama. If I want a Kit Kat, I’ll have one, and so should you!’

 

Stella McCartney

‘When you have a baby, they are so pure and untouched that a car goes past and you look at all the pollution and you really just want to protect them.’

 

Leslie Mann

‘One of my children puked on the guy next to me. Yeah, that was a moment.’
