Jessica Biel Says She Eats In The Shower Because #MomLife

The actress got real about parenting.

Back in October, Jessica Biel shared an unusual Instagram post that resonated with a lot of moms.

The actress posted a photo of a plate, fork and cup of coffee in the shower. “Yes. I eat in the shower. I admit it,” she wrote in the caption, along with the hashtag #ShowerEats.

The post elicited a lot of responses from her fellow parents, who commented that they engage in similar multitasking stunts.

Yes. I eat in the shower. I admit it. Chicken apple sausage and espresso. Try it. I dare you. #ShowerEats

Appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday, the actress elaborated on her Instagram post and got real about parenting.

“You eat in the shower?” Fallon asked her.

“This is just mom life,” she replied.

Biel and her husband Justin Timberlake are parents to a son named Silas, who turns 2 in April. It seems that being a parent has helped the actress refine her multitasking skills.

“I don’t know if anybody else does this,” Biel said of her shower meals. “I do not have time for anything. I’m feeding him in the morning, trying to get ready and I realize I haven’t eaten. I just take it into the shower.”

She added, “Sometimes it’s a huge success. Sometimes it’s a huge failure.”

Biel also mimed to demonstrate how she eats while showering and cautioned that it works well with foods like sausage or cereal but not with sandwiches.

“You should try it!” she told Fallon.
