Even Wonder Woman has it hard sometimes. Actress Gal Gadot, star of the highly acclaimed new super hero film, recently got real on Instagram. After a sleepless night with her 3-month-old baby, Maya Versano, and an early morning with her 5-year-old daughter, Gadot posted a makeup-free selfie. Despite being exhausted, she took a moment to remark on the importance of enjoying the little moments in parenting in her post:

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. It always amazes me how the most simple things are the ones to make us the happiest

While it can be easy to think that a movie star’s life is always glamorous and easy, Gadot reminds us that she is no different than the rest of us, especially when it comes to raising a family. It can be hard and exhausting β€” whether you work behind a desk or on a Hollywood set. The actress had posted another natural picture prior to giving birth to her second baby, and it’s something every mom can relate to.

In it, she writes:

With the daily routine of life, family and work I’m distracted all day long . Today I had a moment with myself when I was looking out the window at the beautiful clear blue sky and realized that I’m 9 months (!!!) pregnant and soon will have a new lovepup as an addition to our family.. could not be more grateful to the universe. Sending you guys some positive gratitude energies.
