Little wonders. These celebrity moms welcomed rainbow babies into their families after suffering miscarriages. Pink, who shares Willow and Jameson with husband Carey Hart, admitted in April 2019 that she has had “multiple” pregnancy losses since she was 17. “I wanted to have this child,” the Grammy winner told USA Today Die […]

“I think there were so many things where I was like, ‘I totally know how to do this.’ “I’ve been around kids, but when it’s your own kid, it’s completely different,” she exclusively shared Us weekly in July 2020, referring to her 18 siblings. “For one thing, it’s your responsibility, it doesn’t mean: ‘Here, mom, the child stinks, change the diaper.’ I think waking up in the night was probably one of the biggest adjustments for me. I feel the responsibility to check their fever and make sure they are okay. When do I know I need to go to the doctor?”

Jessa added at the time, “I constantly go up to moms who are a season ahead of me, like my own mom, and ask myself, ‘Hey, do you have a kid with that personality?’ Or “Have you dealt with this problem before?” Or “How do you stay cool?” I always ask my mom that when I feel like I’m getting frustrated over little things. I’m definitely really impressed with my mom’s patience.”
