25 of the best celebrity parenting quotes
Who else could kick off a year of hilarious quotes better than Lily Allen. After the birth of her first daughter Ethel Mary, Lily tweeted, “I left the house without breast pads and started leaking all over myself.” Breasts are “not just #sexyfunbags, they be feeding implements, too,” added Lily.
In January, Tori Spelling kicked off a trend for monthly birthday celebrations, tweeting her joy that daughter Hattie had reached her “3 month birthday.” We feared this would be a trend that would catch on, and we were right to worry. Celeb-ville took well to this trend, and we’ve seen it happen over and over again. Bank accounts be afraid!
Brooklyn Beckham made a somewhat awkward English/American mix-up earlier this year. When he asked his dad David for “some rubbers”, David’s American friends thought he was after something slightly ruder than an eraser. We hope mini-Becks has got that one all straightened out!
Una Healy got herself worked up with a rather poor choice of pre-labour telly. The mum-to-be tweeted, “Watching one born every minute! Now watching Knocked up….!” Not sure we’d recommend that, or these movie labour scenes either, Una.
In February, Peter Andre revealed his wishes for daughter Princess Tiaamii to be a nun. “I interviewed a nun once and I asked her how you have to be to become a nun. She said, ‘I think your daughter’s slightly too young, however, we do have youngish students’. And I said, ‘Oh really? How old?’ She said, ‘About 13.’ I went, ‘Oh, by that stage my daughter is not going to listen to me. ‘Can we not do it now?’ I asked. ‘No I’m afraid not,’ she said.” Ah well, better luck next time, ah Pete?
