The world went wild on Monday when Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed a third child into the world, a bouncing baby boy. As is tradition, Middleton was up on her feet and posing for the camera with a newborn in hand just hours after her delivery. It's kind of astounding:
For whatever reason, Middleton seems capable of getting dressed and sitting through a blow out right after having a baby. She's done it every time:
A post-birth stylist is not a luxury everyone can afford. Even if you do have one one, it's pretty incredible that Middleton is out of bed and holding a baby to wave at the crowd within 24 hours of labor.
Well, I always thought Wonder Woman was a fictional character, until Kate Middleton walked out of the hospital only 7 hours after giving birth. Now, I know she's real.— Melanie Smith (@Melanie_KS) April 24, 2018
Other moms think so, too, and are wondering why they don't have that same finesse. But moms have a sense of humor about themselves—the chill ones, anyway.
Some very funny moms have started sharing their own post-birth pics side-by-side with Middleton's, and the comparison is hilarious:
That looks more like it!
These moms have energy and fashion:
All moms are goddesses, really:
Who should probably not get out of bed:
Or be forced to smile for the camera:
Because it's really a rough time:
Kate Middleton.... and me after birth of third child 😂😂😂 .... seriously though, she looked beaituful and I feel bad people making negative comments about how unreal is for her to have left in heels and a dress. Lets be honest though, we all know that under that lovely outfit is a nursing bra with pads to keep her from leaking through her clothes along with a flabby after birth belly tucked into some mesh underwear you also have the worlds largest pad thats covered in some witch hazel pads and ointment.... if your lucky you get a maxi pad that is also and Icepack to shove in your mesh undies as well. Its sort of like judging a book by its cover..... just like we are all the same on the inside... post birth moms are the same under whatever outfit you walk out in. #katemiddleton #royalbaby #thirdbaby #hospitalafterbirthpic #iwantabeautyteam #imstillhot #ijusthadababy #myshoesdidntmatch #meshunderwear #icepackpad #hemroidcream
And it honestly doesn't get much easier:
My mom always said that she wanted me to marry Prince William when I was older. So glad that never worked out because let’s be honest... those are expectations that I cannot live up to. Five years later and I’m still tired 😆🤷🏻♀️ #tired #motherhood #momlife #justsaying #itstrue #issheevenhuman #katemiddleton #seriously #whatthewhat #tiredasamother #boymom #truth #truestory #love #lovewhatmatters @lovewhatmatters
But to each their own. Maybe Middleton gets back to the palace and sleeps for 48 hours, who knows. Congrats to William and Kate. No matter how good she looks, raising three kids ain't easy.
