Tears, trolls and a ‘week of hell’: Celeb mums’ honest admissions including Molly-Mae

Motherhood is a difficult task and one that even celebrities struggle with, and numerous famous mums have this week opened up about their difficulties – from "weeks from hell" to feelings of mum guilt.

New mum Molly-Mae Hague made headlines when she tearfully opened up about how she was struggling after welcoming baby daughter Bambi into the world, and although she's since shared that she's feeling more like her "old self" she's continued to share some of the problems she's faced in recent months.

The former Love Island star, 23, recently shared that she misses her "old body", revealing that she'd had a "meltdown" during a PrettyLittleThing photoshoot.

Discussing this in a YouTube video, Molly-Mae said:"I did, in the afternoon, have a bit of a meltdown just because it was a lot to take in. That was my second day without Bambi and I think I keep forgetting that I am still am only three months post-partum.

"I had not really prepared myself for how I might feel on a photoshoot. I think I had kinda not prepared myself fully for how I might feel on a photoshoot, three months after having a baby."

Fellow ex-Love Islander and new mum Shaughna Phillips has opened up about the "mum-shaming" she's experienced since welcoming her newborn daughter, Lucia.

Shaughna has been updating fans through social media, and she earlier took Lucia out for a drive in a move that predictably drew some criticism.

Addressing the backlash, the TV star took to her Instagram Story, where she wrote: “I’m going to keep showing the ups and downs of mamahood.

"I feel like it’s more important that than me worrying about a few people being unable tor read the room. But seriously, just because you have an opinion, doesn’t mean I need to hear it. We are all trying our best.”

Mum-of-three Billie Shepherd is another celeb mum who's spoken out about her struggles recently, with a recent episode of Billie and Greg: The Family Diaries seeing the former TOWIE star become emotional as she discussed how her five-year-old son Arthur had been struggling since the arrival of baby Margot.

As Billie's mum Suzie asked if five-year-old Arthur has been struggling with the new arrival, Billie became rather emotional as she replied: "Arthur, a million per cent. I think we all kinda expected it", as she became teary, Suzie got up to hug her daughter.

Billie continued: "Every time I talk about it I do get emotional, I think it's because with Arthur, he's definitely more challenging."

In a video to camera, Billie added: "I hate the thought of him [Arthur] being upset and that's making me upset."

And soon-to-be mum-of-two, and step-mum of three, Kate Ferdinand has candidly discussed the "week of hell" that occurred when she began potty-training her two-year-old son Cree.

Recalling the hellish week on her podcast Blended, Kate said: "Brace yourself for a week of hell. It's hard work, you repeat yourself constantly, you say the same thing all the time.

"And you feel like at certain stages you're failing. They might have a little lapse backward. It was really, really, difficult."

However, she then added that once the first and most difficult week is over, everything is then "kind of OK" as she described Cree's training as a "work in progress".
