This week’s HAPPY MUM, HAPPY BABY: The Podcast guests are the wonderful Sam and Nic of Pixiwoo. I’ve no doubt you’ll enjoy this chat. There are moments of hilarity like this when we’re talking about the things children say and what we tell them, and then there are parts of the conversation which turn to growing up in a home of domestic abuse, feeling overwhelmed with motherhood and losing yourself. Talking can help so many, so I’m so thankful to these incredible women for coming in and sharing their experiences of motherhood. Big love to @pixiwoo @pixiwoos Listen in your usual podcast places (link in bio on IG) https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/happy-mum-happy-baby/id1277078956?mt=2&i=1000420875457.

Probably one of the most real celebrity mums, Kristen Bell’s bare face selfies describe parenting in a hilarious way that is almost too accurate. Bell gives new meaning to the nickname “wonder mum” through her dedication to her kids and commitment to having a balanced life in the spotlight. Whether she’s dressing up in matching costumes with her kids for the second year in a row or posting a no-makeup selfie first thing in the morning, every mum can learn a thing or two from KB.

Whether you’re jealous of her or adore her, Kim Kardashian’s feed is a great escape from everyday life.

While waiting for the kids to be done at sports or piano practice, give Chrissy Teigen a follow for funny family travel posts and inspirational love dedications to her husband.

Fashion designer, model, and previous Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is a must follow mum on Instagram. Her incredible real posts will leave you laughing along as you scroll.

Trading her scalpel on Grey’s Anatomy for her phone on Instagram, Ellen Pompeo’s hashtags are priceless.
