Gal Gadot is a wonder woman through and through as she balances her hectic career with being a dedicated mother to her three sweet children.
Gadot and her husband of fifteen years, former real estate developer Jaron Varsano welcomed their daughters Alma, Maya, and Daniella in 2011, 2017, and 2021 respectively.
While motherhood has been a blissful gift for the phenomenal actress, there have also been downsides that she opened up about, detailing her experience as a working mom.
Gal Gadot Dishes On Being A Working Mom
Gadot was recently interviewed about progressing with her career and making it work as a mom of three. “Having three children is messy and chaotic in the best way possible,” she candidly stated, adding that she had “guilt trips” as a “default” of being a working mother.”
The “Wonder Woman” actress elucidated that being a parent made her often wish to be at home whenever she was at work. However, she also worried she was not working enough when staying home with her girls.
“It can be a vicious cycle—but you have to mute those feelings,” she emphasized before buttressing that what helped her was accepting that she could not be a “perfectionist.”
Gadot encouraged herself to be the best mom possible and kept doing what she loved, which she believed reflected on how her daughters viewed her – “a mother who is happier, who has interest in her life.”
Regarding the youngsters’ reaction to her fame, she explained to Flaunt Magazine for their Eternal Flame Issue that they are “the stars” to her and are at the age where they never listen to her or her husband.
Nevertheless, the “Death on the Nile” star disclosed that working moms in Hollywood seem to be gaining more support, adding that she took her girls to the sets of “Wonder Woman” and “Heart of Stone” where they hung out with the cast and crew.
The Israeli native also gave insight into her relationship with her husband, Varsano. Recalling her parents’ opinions about her dropping out of school to pursue acting, Gadot said they initially disapproved as they wanted her to get a career that did not involve modeling or acting.
The DC icon mentioned that when she got into entertainment, her folks believed it was “temporary” until she was offered a role in “Fast & Furious.” Although she left her motherland, Israel, to Hollywood for the gig, she was not always interested in being an actress, but her husband, whom she met before her fame, urged her to do it and even traveled with her.
Gadot described Varsano as the “dreamer” and “the kite that will reach out to the sky” while she was “the root, the tree that the kite is connected to.” She also admitted, “I would never be where I am without him,” adding, “When success arrived, my parents—well, they never imagined [it could be like] this. So now they’re my number one fans, and they’re very supportive, but it took them a bit.”
Despite being one of the famous names in Hollywood, the “Red Notice” ensures to keep her daughters away from the limelight as much as possible. Still, she announced their births on Instagram, beginning with her first-born, Alma, 11, who arrived a few weeks early and “brought so much love and light” into their home.
While filming “Wonder Woman,” Gadot was pregnant with her second born, Maya, 6, and felt “so blessed” to welcome her, same with her last born, Daniella, 2, whose birth was announced with a rare family selfie.

Gadot’s relationship with her husband, who is ten years older, is a match made in heaven as there was an instant connection when they first met in 2006, two years before their marriage.
Per PEOPLE, Varsano was previously a real estate developer and businessman but now works in the entertainment industry alongside his wife.
The Israeli producer has always been Gadot’s number one fan to the extent that he sold his entire real estate portfolio, including his hotel in Israel, in 2017 to move to Los Angeles with her.
In addition, he pays tribute to the 38-year-old regularly and never relents in his support for Gadot, which the actress is always open about, including when she credited him in 2016 for helping her get over her guilt as a working mom.
