Some magazines might say that celebrities “are just like us,” but one mom on Instagram is hilariously challenging this notion. Celeste Barber, an Australian actor and comedian, is well-known for recreating Hollywood’s popular Instagram photos and giving the glamorous—and often ridiculous—images a much-needed dose of reality. She applies this same biting wit to the portraits of celebrity parents whose calm, beautifully composed photos will make any parent think, “yeah right!”
Barber is a mother of two sons under the age of six and stepmom to a couple of teenage daughters, so it’s safe to say she’s got a good grasp on the exhausting task of parenting. This insight only makes her parodies all the more funny. Model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen is seen calmly preparing dinner in a stylish crop top with a drink at her side. Barber, on the other hand, looks frazzled as she’s about to sip some wine right out of the bottle. In another side-by-side comparison, Kim Kardashian and her daughter North have a peaceful snuggle while Barber is bombarded with a child’s diaper on top of her face.
For any parent that might compare themselves to a celebrity mom or dad, they just need to look at Barber’s photos to find the “truth” behind them.
