Is it teething time for your little one?
Anne Hathaway explains why she has given up alcohol for the next 18 years

We can all admit we’ve had days when mum duties can get the better of us. Tantrums, stressful school runs and never-ending episodes of Peppa Pig cause many of us to treat ourselves to a glass of wine to help unwind after a nightmare day.

There’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to a glass or two in the evening, but one very famous mum has decided to kick this habit.

Anne Hathaway has revealed that she is giving up drink for the next 18 years. The One Day star said she has decided to cut out alcohol for the sake of her two-year-old son Jonathan.

The Devil Wears Prada star explained that doing the school run when she was hungover pushed her to make this decision.

She shared the ordeal on The Ellen Show: “I did one school run one day where I dropped him off at school, I wasn't driving, but I was hungover and that was enough for me. I didn't love that one.”

"I quit drinking back in October, for 18 years. I'm going to stop drinking while my son is in my house just because I don't totally love the way I do it and he's getting to an age where he really does need me all the time in the mornings,” the doting mum said.

We must commend Anne for committing to quite the major lifestyle change, but we’re sure many parents will understand why she has decided to quit drinking.

There really is nothing worse than listening to your kid's yelp along to the Frozen soundtrack when you’re hungover.
