Imagine if your mom was the actual Wonder Woman. I mean, the whole lasso of truth thing wouldn't be the greatest. But otherwise... pretty amazing. Gal Gadot's two daughters might still be too little to really understand and embrace the implications of having a superhero as a mother, but they'll understand it some day. For now, the Israeli-born actress is just mom to them. And these Gal Gadot quotes about her kids are proof positive that's exactly the way she wants it.
Gadot has two daughters with her husband, Israeli businessman Yaron Varsan: 6-year-old Alma and 2-month-old baby Maya. The former Miss Israel (not to mention actress, model, soldier, and law student) tends to keep a low profile with her daughters. But she's still a mom, and moms will brag about their kids lickety-split if you give them them the slightest chance.
After giving birth to daughter Maya just two months ago, for example, Gadot indulged in a little well-earned enthusiasm about becoming a mother again. Sure, she is part of the Justice League. Sure, she is basically every girl-child and woman-child's hero all across the land. But what really gets this Wonder Woman excited is bringing another human being into this world.
Gadot shared this sweet black and white shot of her daughter Alma pushing baby sister Maya in her stroller after she was born. She captioned the photo:
On Feeling Like Wonder Woman
Gadot spoke to news.com.au about the strength and dedication she felt after giving birth, saying:
Bringing Up Alma
Gadot shoulders the weight of inspiration for all of womankind these days, it seems. But she told Glamour that there was one person she has always wanted to inspire more than anyone else — her daughter Alma:
Also her husband? Love.
Badass Feminist & Also Mom
Gadot understands that raising daughters in the modern world calls for a little extra. And she's not afraid to teach her daughters to be Wonder Women themselves some day. She told Glamour in that same interview that she was "laying the groundwork" of feminism with her daughters:
Gadot's daughters might not yet understand that their mom is Wonder Woman... but they probably already know she is a wonder woman.
