The life of celebrities can seem so different than ours—and rightfully so. However, they are people too. And people with kids can always use help making it all happen. Here’s some celebs that have no problem giving credit where credit is due when it comes to much-needed child care.

 

“Even though it was for only 3 weeks, as a new mom, it set the stage for me to take on the biggest, most important thing that had ever happened to me. She taught me how to bathe, breastfeed and soothe my new baby. And taught me about the importance of taking care of myself and gave me the space to have all the feels and not feel so alone. It truly takes a village to raise kiddos- whether it’s your blood family or chosen family.”

–Jessica Alba

 

“I’m super-unorganized, a real procrastinator, time management is non-existent. When I had them, I realized I couldn’t be selfish anymore. My time away needs to be productive, and my time with them needs to be productive…It’s a lot of depending on a lot of other people.”

–Gwen Stafani

 

 

“I’m successful at work, because of my nanny…the only reason I have a career is that we have a wonderful nanny who does everything in our house.”

–Amy Poehler

Alec: “I am forever indebted to the women who have helped care for our children. Muchos gracias Lizzy, Sandra, Zena, Lisa and Avril.”

Hilaria: “We have a family atmosphere at home. We have written on our rings, “somos un buen equipo” (we are a good team) and we take that philosophy to everyone who enters our home. We are so lucky to have wonderful people in our lives, both paid, and not paid, who love our children.”

“Not a lot of people can go on date nights, can have a sitter, have someone take care of their baby. ‘Me time’ is important, but not everybody can do it.”

“Every time I look at [my daughter] Luna, I wonder, ‘How on earth does anybody do this alone?’ I have the utmost respect for mothers [and] single mothers.”

–Chrissy Teigen

 

 

“The nanny is with [my son] all the time when he is with Orlando; don’t get me wrong, he’s a great dad, it’s just me being a protective mother and wanting to make sure all his needs are met. I want to keep Flynn’s routine. Orlando’s fine with it. In fact, he likes it, it’s less pressure.”

–Miranda Kerr

 

“Kids are life-transformative, but they should fit into your life.”

“You don’t want to feel resentful for forgetting about a whole part of yourself. It’s tough learning how to balance and multitask; it’s a lot of balls to juggle. That’s been the biggest learning curve of this year for sure.”

“I am sleeping a little, probably a little more than most. A lot of people who have a baby probably don’t have as much rest as I do. We have [a nanny] helping us manage all the risks of having a newborn.”

–Jenna Dewan

 

“People think I have a staff of 40, but I don’t…I have one nanny and my mom up the street and amazing friends and family. I call them my village.”

“I knew that I would have to have my mom help me if I was going to do this as a single parent,” she said. “To not acknowledge her co-parenting my children would be a lie.”

–Charlize Theron

 

“Our assistant, our nanny, and our housekeeper. They are literally raising our children with us,” she admits.

“It’s because of them I am able to rip myself away as long as I can, and my husband as well, to do what we do. They’re teaching us how to manage our pain as they’re raising our kids with us.”

“I don’t want to raise kids who put other people’s priorities first. They need to know how to put their priorities where they need to be. You show them how you fight for your dreams.”

–Zoe Saldana

 

 

“I have a nanny and she’s just like part of our family. She’s lovely and a life-saver and I couldn’t work without her. I couldn’t be here without her because she loves my children and they love her.”

–Gwyneth Paltrow

 

 

“Yesterday I was actually able to put on makeup, get dressed in a cute outfit, and run errands that I had put on hold for months.”

“I think for a while I was too embarrassed to get someone to help me because I was worried about being judged for not being able to do it all myself…And ya know what, I’m kind of upset with myself for waiting as long as I did because not only am I a better mommy now but I feel like I have some of my sanity back.”

–Ali Fedotowsky-Manno
