Gal Gadot is essentially a newcomer to the limelight of the blockbuster movie. Because of this, the actress’ fans are still getting to know the budding star. Among the things they’re just finding out about Gal Gadot is that she’s a young mother. Considering her schedule has recently become quite a bit more hectic, the Israeli beauty has begun to worry a bit about the happiness of her child as Gal Gadot travels the world making a living.
Speaking to Bang Showbiz, Gadot told the publication her worries specifically center around whether she does enough for her young child. Gadot’s daughter, Alma, is just 4-years-old, so it’s easy to see why the Batman v Superman actress might have some mixed feelings about not being around more for her daughter. Many actors and actresses in and out of Hollywood have talked about how hard it is for a young child to have a parent on the road as often as Gadot will have to be in the coming months.
It’s especially hard for those personalities who didn’t have an incredibly busy schedule in the child’s first years. Gal Gadot’s relationship with Hollywood came almost out of nowhere. There were outcries when she was named as the woman who was going to play Wonder Woman. By most accounts, she was able to do the job just fine in Dawn of Justice. The actress and model hasn’t really come out of nowhere; she’s appeared in a number of films and series, but nothing on the blockbuster level. Certainly, Gadot has never been the headliner in a blockbuster like she will be when Wonder Woman hits the theaters.
When that movie does take off, Gal Gadot will need to deal with even more time away from her daughter. For now, the actress has come up with a solution by having her mother and her daughter travel with her. Gadot’s mom acts as a kind of nanny for Alma when she has to go to work. It appears that Gadot’s mother has told her she will always travel with the actress, and bring her daughter with her when need be. Of course, that may all change when Alma gets a bit older, and decisions like what kind of schooling the girl needs becomes a bigger deal.
Despite those worries, Gal Gadot thinks she picked just the right time to have her first child. She has talked before about how she and her husband wondered about the best time to have a child, according to Albawaba Entertainment.
“It’s given me a lot of joy. I was thinking about whether I should wait to have children when my acting career was more settled, but then I thought that if you’re more successful, you’re working even more, so that wouldn’t be the best time either.”
It’s clear the actress doesn’t want anyone to think she has any regrets about having her child. While Gadot’s career is only going to be busier, she feels as though she has been able to come up with a plan in order to make her family and her professional life mesh. If the DC movies continue to have the kind of box office performances that Batman v Superman managed to post, it’s likely her career will only take off. She doesn’t sound like a woman who is going to lose perspective. Gadot has said she’s very happy being a mother and she feels an incredible love for Alma. Gal Gadot, for one, says the kind of love she feels for her kid is a kind of love that is different from anything else she’s experienced.
