In case no one told ya, pregnancy is tough. No matter what someone says, there are always ups and downs when it comes to expecting a little bundle, and while the waiting and sickness pays off, it still just downright stinks. Although it might not seem like it, celebrities go through the same issues that we all go through -- including that awful morning sickness. Sure, the lives of celebrity moms often seem over-glorified and unrealistic, but let's face it, no one is immune to the power that pregnancy holds over a woman ... not even models and actresses. While we might expect these celeb moms and soon-to-be moms to shy away from talking about their sicknesses, sometimes, that's not the case.

In fact, a lot of celebrities are extremely open about the bouts of sickness and nausea they go through when they are pregnant. Whether it's in an exclusive interview or shared on their own personal social media accounts, these celeb ladies are going through pregnancy struggles just like us normal folk. Everyone wants to know that they're not alone in what they're experiencing during those wonderful nine months. It's nice to know that even celeb moms can keep it real when it comes to pregnancy, because if there's anything that can unite someone, it's a growing belly and swollen ankles!

Although morning sickness and nausea aren't the cheeriest of topics, it's still important for soon-to-be moms to know that everyone goes through similar things during their pregnancies. So, in the spirit of Amy Schumer being about as open as it gets with her pregnancy journey, we hope more celebrity moms start sharing more and being more candid with their experiences. Everyone goes through it, so why not talk about it? In the name of being real, here are 20 celebrities who really opened up about their morning sickness.

    While filming Justice League, Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot dealt with some pretty serious morning sickness. "I was super sick, I vomited everywhere," the celeb mom revealed during an interview.

    "And my assistant, I don't want to be disgusting ... but I felt so sick and I didn't say anything to anyone and I thought no one knew (I was pregnant) and everyone knew, apparently -- they told me after ... I started to come to set with sunglasses, because it's all green screen and bright light lights. Then every cut I had to go and run and vomit somewhere. So I had an assistant with a bucket … and once I was so loud and I couldn't make it to the restroom in my trailer, so I was vomiting … and (my assistant started singing really loudly)."
