There was a lot of news surrounding famous moms this past week from all over the world. From humble confessions to a royal wedding on the grandest stage, there is plenty to talk about!
All About Moms at the Royal Wedding
Millions of people showed up and tuned in to watch Prince Harry marry Meghan Markle and, while the happy couple was up front and center, the underlying theme of the day was undeniably all about mothers.
Of course, Queen Elizabeth II, in her bright green ensemble, attracted a lot of attention as her grandson took his vows. At 92 years old, the mother of four was regal (naturally!) in low heels, walking unassisted while overlooking the days’ events. It’s pretty unreal.
Then, there was Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. We know that she mostly raised her daughter after divorcing Thomas Markle Sr. but who could have expected that, after he had unexpected heart surgery, Ms. Ragland would sit alone in an entire row as the sole representative of the bride’s side of the family. Despite the attention she knew she’d receive, she stayed true to herself wearing her nose ring and dreadlocks to a royal wedding. Goals!
Finally, everyone’s mind was on Princess Diana who, considering her devotion and love for her sons, would have wanted to be there when Prince Harry said: “I do.” Still, they found ways of honoring his late mother with Meghan even being photographed wearing one of Diana’s favorite rings.
Chrissy Teigen Keeps It Real
Last week, Chrissy Teigen and husband, John Legend, welcomed their second child, a boy named Miles. The model and television personality is known for being pretty outspoken so it’s no surprise that she took to social media to address a few things in this first week postpartum.
Almost every new mom knows about the mesh underwear provided by the hospital after giving birth. They are truly miraculous, comfortable and seem to fit any shape. Teigen shared a shot of herself wearing a pair while holding a carefully wrapped piece of fruit. The hashtag accompanying her caption simply read “Asian pear underwear” and we instantly knew what she meant!
Later, she shared a picture she took of her television screen while she clearly held baby Miles on her lap. Legend had just performed at the Billboard Awards and, in a poke at the pressure new moms face (but dads tend to escape), she wrote, “Wow didn’t u just have a baby John smh go take care of it!!!!! disgusting.” She makes a good point!
Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals Hair Loss
During the most recent episode of her Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that one of the reasons she’s been sporting a wrap recently is that she’s been losing her hair. She first noticed it one day in the shower. Despite undergoing tests, she’s not sure why this is happening.
While she admits to being in a panic at first, she found a way to see it in a different light. “I really had to put it into a spiritual perspective, like the higher power takes so much from people. People are out here with cancer. People have sick children. I watch the higher power take things every day.”
She explained that looking at things through this lens gave her peace. It seems like a good way to reflect on pretty much any challenge. Mama’s wisdom!
