Being a single mother isn't easy. Even celeb moms know the struggle is real, and sadly, many women find that men just aren't as involved as they should be. While there are awesome dads out there, they are tragically scarce.
There are many women in South Africa who have to raise their children alone because the fathers can't, or won't, provide for their kids.
Raising a child, or children, alone is no easy task, and even celebs, who we think are almost above human, have difficulties and know the struggle.
Penny Lebyane and Kgomotso Christopher discussed the hardship of motherhood on social media, and it's clear they know how difficult it is.
Penny said she'd love it if single moms could swap lives with the fathers for 3 months and get a chance to rest and enjoy their lives while the fathers take some responsibility.
Kgomotso thought this was like gambling with the children, and remembered what happened when she had to live with her father.
However, there are still many great dads out there, and they are proud to be part of their children's lives.
One example is SA rapper Emtee, who shared two proud pics of his son kitted in his school uniform as he headed off to his first day of pre-school.
On the other hand, many women are showing they can do just fine without men, like Twitter user @MalumDube.
