It turns out famous mums have crazy shambolic mornings like the rest of us.
Jessica Biel has a 10-month-old son, Silas with husband Justin Timberlake, 35. Us mere mortals assume two parents being famous would mean their life was perfectly seamless behind the scenes, right? But Biel has set us normaltons straight.
The 33-year-old has told us that her mum mornings are just as crazy, scattered and early as the rest of us – sans snooze button though. The mum-of-one did a Q & A on Instagram with The Skimm. They asked Biel what time she gets up (after not hitting the snooze button).
“It varies but I would say always (2) hours before I’d really like to,” she said.
Forget the morning, here’s what we do after the kids are in bed. Post continues after the video…
Biel was described in her Q&A as a ‘Mama Bear, actress, producer, wannabe alpinist and a consummate student of the Woman Care Global #ThenWhoWill campaign.’ She also revealed she’s not a snorer – but her dog is.
When asked about the three things she can’t live without in the morning Biel said, “Yoga. Eating breakfast with my kid. Listening to Erykah Badu while I eat with my kid. We love her.”
Well good morning @JessicaBiel. #UpWiththeSkimm #SkimmLife Name: Jessica Biel Job: Mama Bear, actress, producer, wannabe alpinist, consummate student of the @WomanCareGlobal #ThenWhoWill campaign. What time do you get up? It varies but I would say always (2) hours before I’d really like to. How many times do you snooze? I’m not a snoozer. Never have been. Wish I was but I would never get up if I did. I do snooze periodically throughout the day during any sort of boring conversation. Do you snore? I don’t think so. And even if I did, my dog Tina snores so loudly that no one would ever know if I did. Thanks T. 3 things you can’t live without in the AM? Yoga. Eating breakfast with my kid. Listening to Erykah Badu while I eat with my kid. We love her. Favorite line from theSkimm recently? “What to say to your niece who just found out about Santa? It’s OK. The Nazi Gold Train isn’t real either. What’s your morning drink? Bullet Proof Decaf Coffee. Who do you let speak to you before coffee? Wait… is that an option? Complete the sentence: Woke up like this: Disheveled, running late, doing too many things at once and underperforming all of them; but pretty thrilled about mediocrity! Could be a lot worse, guys. A lot worse.
The busy mum’s morning drink is golden mum syrup, aka coffee. When asked who she lets speak to her before coffee she assumed that was an optional thing.
Biel was then asked to complete this sentence, “Woke up like this…”
“Disheveled, running late, doing too many things at once and underperforming all of them; but pretty thrilled about mediocrity! Could be a lot worse, guys. A lot worse,” she told The Skimm on Instagram.
Oh so lovely to know it’s not just us.
What do your mornings look like?
