Having kids is no excuse to let go of ourselves. In fact, having little ones to look after should only serve as inspiration for moms to take better care of themselves in all ways--physically, emotionally, and mentally. As we get older, we require a little more self-care and time to really make sure we are being our best selves. There are plenty of celebrity moms who show us that it is possible to get better with age and that, sometimes, kids help us look even better than we did before we had them. 

More from MamásLatinas: 20 Celebrity dads who welcomed children after 40

There are moms over the age of 40 who are killing it right now and living their best lives all while caring for their children.
