As you book your brunches, scramble to order flowers, pick out the perfect card and all those other things you have to do before Mother’s Day this Sunday, we had a little revelation: Maybe our moms should be thanking US for a change.* We have arrived at this conclusion because of the very wise words of celebrity ladies, who, shockingly, appear to really, really like having children. The latest comes from a tweet brand-new mom Jessica Simpson wrote last night: “I am so in love with baby Maxwell. I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced,” she wrote.
Interesting fact: Jessica may have cribbed this line from someone else. Or all of the people. But specifically, Miranda Kerr who said this year of having baby Flynn: “I love it, I really love it. … He’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Well, at least Beyonce had something original to say about how motherhood enhances your beauty. “I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth,” she told People. “I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth.”
Well, we hope she’s not dissing moms like Charlize Theron, who went the adoption route. At least Charlize is finding Jackson entertaining: “It’s overwhelmingly incredible. Every day there’s something new,” the evil queen told ET.
You know really is getting dissed? Anyone who isn’t a mother. Because these ladies are basically dismissing THE REST OF LIFE as being meaningless. Last year, Nick Cannon told People how Mariah Carey feels about having Moroccan and Monroe: “She really knows what being a woman is about now.”
And ubermom Angelina Jolie doesn’t even think all of her humanitarian efforts are as important as her brood. As she said to Hollyscoop recently, “But everything that matters in life has to do with being a parent.”
*Just kidding, moms of the world. We are buying all of you cards and roses and brunches right now. This was all a ruse to re-post pics of adorable celebrity kids.
