For Gal Gadot, landing the role of a goddess hasn't brought as much joy as being a mom. And while she is Wonder Woman on screen, in everyday life it's not always easy for her to balance family and work.
Gal Gadot is glad she had married long before her career took off
Gadot always wanted to be a mom. At the same time, she believed that she would have children only after making a career. However, the actress realized that if she was successful, she would have to work harder, and thus there would be less time for kids. Nevertheless, she got pregnant with her first daughter at the age of 25.
Now Gal Gadot is 37 years old, she has 3 daughters, and she is happy with her life. "I'm happy to be a mom. Once you start raising a child, you feel incredible love and happiness. Nothing else in life gives you that feeling."
The biggest challenge for Gadot is balancing family and work
According to Gal, every working mom knows that it's not easy to be in two places at once. She often feels guilty, either because she doesn't pay enough attention to her kids or because she's not focused on her work.
However, the actress has recently shared her thoughts on how to get rid of this feeling, and we think her wisdom can help many moms.

"After all, kids do become a part of your life. You don't have to change your life entirely to meet their needs. Of course, the kids always come first, but I've learned that it's okay if you don't have a routine like other people do. As long as the whole family is together and happy, it's okay."
Gal really wants to set an example to her kids, and her husband fully supports her
When her first daughter, Alma, was about 2 years old, Gal was very worried that the family often had to move from place to place because of her work. However, her husband was stood up for her and said: "Think about what kind of example you want to set to our daughter. If you want to show her to pursue her dreams, you're doing the right thing. We'll figure out the logistics."
Gal admits she couldn't have done anything without her husband, Yaron Versano. In an interview, the man was asked what he loves the most about his wife. His answer was extremely moving, "In the crazy life we have, Gal manages to have a good work-life balance. I'm very impressed by how she juggles all these things and remains an ordinary, normal person."
For Gal Gadot, being famous means being organized, and being a mom means waking up early in the morning, even when she is really tired. "I can spend a sleepless night with my crying baby, and then my 5-year-old wakes me up early in the morning and we're already watching The Cat in the Hat. And I wonder how the simplest things make me so happy."
