It’s easy to think that celebrity parents have it easy. After all, seeing them step out with their little ones is almost like watching a perfect family in a movie. However, parenting still requires a lot of hard work, and even famous moms and dads have moments where they have to deal with messes and unexpected tantrums.
One of them just happens to be Drew Barrymore, whose daughter actually had a major fit at Disney World a few weeks ago.

“She wanted to chase a duck. Maybe a Disney employee, maybe not. Maybe wild. But Olive was determined to catch it, and in hindsight as a parent you have these revelations like, I should’ve let her catch it, because she either would have and been satisfied, or she wouldn’t have been, and been mad at the duck and not her mom who tried to stop her from chasing the bird,” Drew said in an interview.
Situations like these can be tough for any parent, but we absolutely love that the actress turned this chaotic moment into a photo op! Others like Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey have also followed suit by embracing the moment while others, like Katie Holmes, are usually quick to try and remedy the situation. But regardless of their approaches, these captured moments are good reminders that even celebs have challenges when it comes to their kids!
