Gwyneth Paltrow Admits Having "Mommy Guilt"

Gwyneth Paltrow Feels Guilty Leaving Kids For Too Long

Gwyneth Paltrow is one busy lady these days. Between movies, singing, and promoting her new book, it’s safe to say that she has quite a full schedule.

Gwyneth is away from home a lot these days, and she admits to having some of the dreaded “mommy guilt” that so many moms experience, whether they work from home or go to the office every day.

She told The Daily Mail, “I don’t feel guilty unless I am tipping the balance badly. For example, before Christmas, I went away five times, just little trips, but it was too much for my son he was very upset and started crying and acting up. I felt horribly guilty. He’s little and he needs me. But I have just been with them for seven weeks solid, so I am fine with being away this week.”

Gwyneth also added that she and husband Chris Martin “co-parent” the kids, which must make things much easier on everyone when she’s away for work. Plus, I’d say there’s a good chance that she has a few nannies as well.

If only finding the perfect balance were so easy for us “regular” moms!
