USA. “And she said, ‘Do you know that we are really famous?’” When Hilaria asked Carmen to explain how she came to that conclusion, the kindergartener revealed that a friend from school has a book with the entire family’s picture on it.

Hilaria, who is also mother to, Rafael, three, Leonardo, two, and six-month-old Romeo –noted that her children haven’t quite realized that everyone doesn’t live the same lifestyle. “They understand what we do, but they don’t understand that what we do is not what every other mommy and daddy does,” she says. “They know that there’s paparazzi out there, but they think that everybody has paparazzi.”


Hilaria shares anecdotes such as these, and much more, on her podcast Mom Brain. The mommy-of-four sits down with friend Daphne Oz and a host of celebrity parents, doctors and experts and get real about motherhood. “We wanted to create a community for people where we can share what we’re talking about and also talk to other moms, dads and experts about questions that we have,” she notes.

“We wanted it to be no judgment. There are mom sites out there and a lot of them have a certain focus and this is our way.” While the job requires her to spend some time away from family, Hilaria isn’t letting her mom guilt get in the way of her focus.
