8 Celebrity Moms Who Keep It Refreshingly Real on Instagram

As the age-old parenting adage goes, "It takes a village to raise a child," and in this new age of social media, it's become increasingly easier to make it so that celebrity moms can be a part of your own village. Through their very public, very open Instagram accounts, several celebrity moms are taking themselves out of the spotlight to be really real with all of us peasants noncelebrity folk when it comes to the ups and downs of parenting — rather than pretending that raising kids is easy.

If you aren't following these celebrity moms on Instagram, do yourself — and your kids — a favor and hit that follow button ASAP. And if we haven't done enough to convince you yet, check out a sneak preview of each of their 'grams below, as well as why we love following them.

Kristen Bell

Although the mom of two doesn't share photos of her girls' faces, Kristen Bell is constantly sharing little reality checks in the form of photos. From a picture of a beheaded Anna ornament that she claims showcased the way her kids "keep [her] grounded" to a snap of what her floors — or lack thereof — look like covered in her kids' toys, Kristen is bound to have you nodding your head with her #momlife posts.

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen, queen of the Twitter clapback and mom to Luna (and later this year, a baby boy!), is constantly keeping it real on Instagram. If she's not posting photos of Luna with hilarious captions (the above photo's caption read: "*meryl streep voice* 'Go.'"), she's sharing gorgeous photos of her baby bump, lovin' on her singer husband John Legend, or just being completely honest about her parenting ups and downs.

Both empowering and inspiring, Pink has stuck to the level of realness she's always flaunted since having her two kids. Whether she's sharing a breastfeeding selfie, admitting her love for coffee post-kids, or poking fun at her tantrumming children, you'll know when her posts pop up at the top of your feed that they'll be good no matter what.

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde is the feminist mom we all need in our lives. When she's not sharing photos and captions that emphasize how brilliant females are, she's gushing over her two kids — the perfect balance of content, if you ask us.

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson doesn't shy away from sharing the small joys of being a mom to her two little ones, River and Remington (exhibit A: the adorable video above of River eating Nutella for the first time). She also shares the perspective of blended families by showing the love she has for her stepkids, Savannah and Seth.

Jenna Dewan Tatum

Jenna Dewan Tatum is another mom who doesn't show much of her daughter on social media, but when she does, the moments she captures and the captions she writes are super relatable (like in the above video, where she shared a look into her working "mom life"). When she's not sharing snippets of life with 4-year-old Everly, she's showing love for her body, spreading the message that it's 100 percent OK to want to feel sexy after having kids, no matter what your post-baby body looks like.

Drew Barrymore

Mom to two girls, Olive and Frankie, Drew Barrymore is the funny mom you need in your feed. If she's not sharing her tips for getting her children to behave in public (spoiler alert: she says it's hard to do so without devices), she's showcasing her healthy coparenting relationship with her ex-husband, Will Kopelman, or posting photos of her daughters simply to gush over how special parenting really is.

Jenny Mollen

No one feels the true struggles of parenting, it seems, like Jenny Mollen, mom to Sid and Lazlo along with husband, Jason Biggs. Expect snarky and hysterical captions such as the one for the photo above: "I'm sick in bed, my baby was up from 1-5, I'm out of formula, I just ate a f*cking hamburger bun for breakfast, and I'm waiting on an underground goat milk formula dealer to text me back. #adformotherhood."
