Actress Alexa PenaVega Gets Real About Motherhood: ‘This is When You Just Pray To Jesus’

“Listen… parents are superheroes.” Have truer words ever been spoken? Honestly, where would we be if our parents didn’t stick it out through the toughest of times when raising us?

Actress and mom Alexa PenaVega, best known for her role in Spy Kids, and her husband Carlos PenaVega have recently become the parents of two. And in a video shared to her Instagram page, Alexa revealed how she’s adjusting to life with two kids.

“Listen… parents are superheroes. How we all manage to pull it together and figure it out is beyond amazing. Thank you, Jesus. This video happened while we were away filming. To set it up… I had just arrived home from set plus a grocery store run… Los was still on set filming (so I was outnumbered)… We were running on about four hours of sleep and the kids were falling apart and were not afraid to show it. We were all hungry and messy and exhausted!”

Alexa went on to write that when Carlos finally got home, he could tell it was a stressful evening without him there to help. He could also tell because the kids were still screaming when he got home.

“When Los got home he walked in and just held me in the kitchen for a solid three minutes and didn’t let go. (P.s. Three minutes is forever when kids are screaming) We prayed. We laughed. We were in this together. It is now one of my favorite moments in our marriage. It’s funny how in the moments of chaos/“pressure”… diamonds appear.”
