Celebrities are Moms Too

Flipping through glossy magazine pages we always see photos of moms like Nicole Richie, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Garner spending time with their kids. I often wonder if these photos were snapped on a rare occasion when the kiddies are without their nannies.

Well, today I got a dose of celebrity mommy-hood, playing alongside Sophie Gregoire at Le Petit Gym.

And I must say Justin Trudeau's wife is one fine mom. In fact, I think she was one of the most enthusiastic, caring moms there.

At first, I questioned whether she was putting on a show to impress the other moms but after the 45 minute class you could see her genuine kindness and love for spending time with her daughter. She got up on the inflatable mat with the lot of us and was bouncing around, sang along with the rhymes and was beautifully casual throughout it all in a cardigan and a pair of stretch pants.

Her mom even came at the very end to pick them up since it seemed as though they had walked over with their Bugaboo.

With two kids almost two years apart I wonder how she does it while maintaining a successful career and playing the role of the perfect wife to Mr. Trudeau. I guess her secret is safe for now. We'll see if in the coming weeks her little one is eventually accompanied by a nanny. Or maybe she will surprise us all by being just a regular multitasking mom like the rest of us.


  1. Are you saying that moms who have nannies aren't able to multi task? I'd say on the contrary, if that's your intention. I think that a lot of moms are willing to have the best of both lives by pursuing their careers and other personal interests, while at the same time, having some relief from a doesn't diminish the fact that a mom with a nanny isn't a multi-tasker...

  2. No, that's not what I meant at all. Sorry if I offended you in any way. I actually have help too! We all need some relief once in a while. I guess we are all just used to seeing celebrity kids with parades of nannies at their sides.
