Mother’s Day is here again. Your and your mum or mother figure could do probably do with some inspiration from other famous mums. Well, here you go, starting with Australia’s very own Natalie Imbruglia.
“For those of you that know me, this has been something I have wanted for a very long time and I’m blessed that this is possible.”
“Becoming a mother has made me next-level confident. I’ve never felt more empowered. I feel like my 20s were spent walking on eggshells making sure everyone felt loved and not really expressing my opinion. As a mom, you just don’t have time, so you get straight to the point.”
“When I had my children and I felt that type of love, which I know you understand and every mom out there understands, it made me understand that there was a purity to love. That there is an unconditional love.”
“In the beginning, I didn’t want to think of myself as a mother. I was like, ‘Wait a minute! Ain’t no hollaback girl is who I am!’ I had to learn to accept it.”
“My daughter introduced me to myself. My mother and I are so close, and I always prayed that I would have that type of relationship with my daughter. And she’s still a baby, but the connection I had with her when I was giving birth was something that I’ve never felt before. I have so much admiration for women who are mothers, who balance family and work.”
“Before, my career came first. All I had to think about was myself. Now my children prevail. It doesn’t mean my career is less important; I just have to position things differently.”
“The most important jewels that will ever be wrapped around your neck are the arms of your children.”
“Wyatt, my adopted son, is definitely all mine. Little souls find their way to you whether they’re from your womb or someone else’s.”
