1. Eva Mendes on vomit and the struggles of being a baby:
"I've learned that it's way harder to be a baby. Everything is a struggle for her. For instance, I haven't thrown up since the '90s and she's thrown up twice since we started this interview. Motherhood is cake compared to what it's like to be a baby." – The Violet Files
"The amazing thing about becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority. The gift of motherhood is the selflessness that it introduces you to, and I think that's really freeing... I think it allows you to put yourself in other people's shoes...the empathy that it slugs you with, being a mother. And I think it makes you a better storyteller." – E!
3. Kerry Washington on how her she-roes will help her be a better mother:
"I have really amazing role models and she-roes who have found ways to balance work and home life, and so I am just looking to them and trying to live in the amazing abundance of blessings that I have in my life right now." – Associated Press
4. Emily Blunt on not knowing what to expect:
"You don't know what to expect because it's just completely, existentially out of anything that you've ever experienced before, and it's quite indescribable. It's heaven." – People
5. Ginnifer Goodwin on the lack of sleep:
“He also has not slept since mid-May. I’m always telling him, 'You can sleep,’ but he won’t, he always helps. He’s my knight in shining armor." – Us Weekly
Craig Ferguson: "Girls are easy – until they are teenagers."
Kunis: "That’s not my problem. That's daddy's problem!"
–The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
7. Scarlett Johansson on the magic of being a mother:
“It's wonderful. It's very, very magical — and exhausting. The love is just unbelievable. It's very overwhelming." – Barbara Walter's Most Fascinating People of 2014
8. Gwen Stefani on the chaos:
"Everybody knows that 4-8 at night is like chaos. It's like the crazy time in our house. The other day we were driving home and I was thinking, 'Ok Motel 6. If I can just find one and go there and disappear – disappear from my life.' But no, they're incredible." – The Ellen Show
"Wait! I don't get it. No disrespect to Kim but... people are offended by my breastfeeding selfies
& are fine with her (amazing) booty cover?" – Twitter
