Motherhood is a difficult task and one that even celebrities struggle with, and numerous famous mums have this week opened up about their difficulties – from “weeks from hell” to feelings of mum guilt.
Molly Mae Hague’s tearful admission of her struggles after giving birth to Bambi made headlines. Although she has now said she is feeling like her “old-self”, she has continued to discuss some of the difficulties she’s experienced in recent months.
She revealed that she had “meltdowns” at a PrettyLittleThing shoot.
Molly-Mae, who discussed this in a YouTube clip, said: “I had a little meltdown in the afternoon because there was so much to absorb. It was my second day with Bambi, and I sometimes forget that I’m only three months after giving birth.
“I was not prepared for the way I might feel during a photoshoot.” I don’t think I was fully prepared for the feelings I would have on a shoot three months after I gave birth to my baby.
Shaughna Philipps, an ex-Love Islander now a mother of a newborn girl named Lucia has revealed the “mum shame” she has experienced after welcoming her new daughter.
Shaughna is updating her fans on social media. She took Lucia to a drive earlier, which was criticised.
Addressing the backlash, the TV star took to her Instagram Story, where she wrote: “I’m going to keep showing the ups and downs of mamahood.
“I feel like it’s more important that than me worrying about a few people being unable tor read the room. But seriously, just because you have an opinion, doesn’t mean I need to hear it. We are all trying our best.”
Billie Shepherd, a mum of three who has recently spoken out on her struggles is another celebrity mum. In a recent episode Billie and Greg – The Family Diaries she became emotional when discussing how her five-year old son Arthur was struggling after the birth of Margot.
Billie, when asked by Suzie if Arthur, age five, was struggling with the new addition to her family. Billie responded in a rather emotional manner:Arthur, I give you a thousand percent. Suzie embraced her daughter as she began to cry.
Billie went on to say: “Everytime I speak about it, I get emotional. I think that’s because Arthur is definitely more challenging.”
Billie said in a video that was recorded: “I can’t stand the thought of him [Arthur] “I’m upset because that makes me upset.”
Kate Ferdinand, soon to be a mum of two and a step-mum of 3, has openly shared her “week of Hell” when she first began potty-training Cree.
Kate, recalling her hellish week in her podcast Blended said: “Prepare yourself for hell.” It’s difficult, you have to repeat yourself, and say the same thing over and over again.
You feel that you are failing at certain points. It’s possible that they have made a small mistake. It was really difficult.”
She then said that, once the first week was over, things are “kind of OK”. Cree’s “work in progress” is described as a “work-in-progress”.
