Forget nannies, baby couture and private schools: celeb moms will tell you that, no matter how many luxuries they can afford, motherhood is the most challenging thing they've ever done.
In our exclusive video, we talk to star moms of all ages about the greatest lessons they've learned from parenting. For Halle Berry, it was patience. "I really needed that in my life," the actress, who is already mom to three-year-old Nahla and expecting her second child this year, tells us. Meanwhile, Gladys Knight says her own mother warned her that once she had kids, "your life is not your own, ever again."
Jada Pinkett Smith, Chaka Khan, Angela Bassett and many others share with us the joys and challenges of raising children. Plus, Tyler Perry on the greatest gift he got from his mother and Kim Kardashian on what she's expecting when she gives birth this summer.
