It's easy to watch celebrity parents glamming it up on the red carpet and think 'they have no idea what it is like to get to work and find a piece of chewed up toast stuck in their bra'.

But when it comes to parenting in Hollywood, some stars like to keep it refreshingly real, showing what life with kids really looks like: messy, challenging, and lots of fun.

Here are some of our favourites.

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde has two children, Otis and Daisy, with her long-term partner Jason Sudeikis. From pregnancy to breastfeeding to needing a stiff drink after her son's birthday party, her social media feed is full of #parentingtruths.

When you're officially embracing the "old timey circus tent" section of your closet. #bumpin
