Gal Gadot Reminds Us to Appreciate Parenthood, Even on the Hard Days

Think celebrity moms are getting tons of sleep? Gal Gadot sets the record straight—but the actress and mother-of-two isn't complaining.

She may star in one of the biggest movies of 2017, but Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot's day-to-day life as a mother? It's shockingly relatable.

Gadot posted an Instagram shot of her makeup-free face, but it's the caption she included that'll resonate with parents everywhere. According to her post, the photo was taken after a sleepless night spent with a colicky baby—which was followed by an early wakeup call from her older daughter. Sound familiar?

But while no one enjoys sleep deprivation, Gadot's post also serves as a powerful reminder: Parenthood is a blessing, and we shouldn't lose sight of that when it gets hard. And sometimes, all it takes is a minute to recharge (and a lot of caffeine) to put things into perspective.

"Sleepless night, colic 3 months old baby and an early wake up by my 5 year old. Went to the garden to get some fresh air with my coffee to help me wake up and now watching The Cat In The Hat with my daughter," she wrote. "It always amazes me how the most simple things are the ones to make us the happiest."

It's crazy to think the Wonder Woman star—who is arguably one of the biggest celebrities of the moment—would find more happiness in watching a movie with her children than in starring in her own, but there you have it. Gadot, who is married to businessman Yaron Versano and a mom to daughters Maya and Alma, just made it pretty clear that she's not just an onscreen superhero. She's also a real-life supermom.
