When you think of the best day of your life, what comes to mind? For me, it was definitely the day my kids were born…but the thing is, the definition of ‘best’ doesn’t always mean ‘perfect’.

Two of our fave Hollywood ladies, Jennifer Garner and Amy Schumer, put their own hilarious spins on Mother’s Day to mark the occasion with these sketches that had us laughing our heads off.

For Amy, it was on SNL via a sketch called ‘The Day You Were Born’, where Amy plays a mum telling her son about the day he was born and how perfect it was – and it’s definitely one that most mamas will relate to. While she describes the day as total bliss to her little boy, she has flashbacks to the reality of the birth; the pain, the fear and the hilarious days and weeks that follow as a new mum.

Jennifer Garner’s co-hosting gig on the Ellen show in celebration of Mother’s Day yesterday was also a knockout.  With an audience full of expectant mums, Jen dropped a hilarious music video all about mum advice – from cracked nipples during breastfeeding to crazy fluid retention to the endless nappy changes that follow, it was real, raw and very bloody funny. Check it out below…
