Uk survey reveals: Madonna admired for being a glamorous mother
The average mother performs more than 15 separate jobs in looking after her children and the home, has just an hour and 45 minutes to herself each day and manages less than seven hours of sleep per night, the poll for Littlewoods Extra found.
The survey also found that the most admired celebrity mother was pop singer and footballer`s wife Victoria Beckham.
Madonna, Kate Winslet and Catherine Zeta Jones were among other stars admired for their parenting skills and for staying attractive and glamorous.
But most mothers claimed not to envy the celebrities’ lives.
Although most of those questioned would cut their workload by a third if they had a star`s bank balance, an overwhelming 88% said they were happier living anonymously with less money than being rich and in the public eye.
The telephone survey of 500 mothers aged between 20 and 50 with a child living at home was carried out in the UK for Littlewoods Extra in September 2003.
