Keeping up with 5-year-old twins and a 3-year-old is taking a toll on Julia Roberts, who jokes that she’s turning to the bottle!

HollyMoms, after a day of changing diapers, picking up toys and doing countless loads of laundry, do you find yourself craving a glass of wine or a vodka and cranberry? Well, you’re not alone. Even celebrity moms like Julia Roberts say they need a nip every now and again.

Julia doesn’t let her kids eat candy every day

“Mommy needs a drink! I could really use this right about now!” is what the 42-year-old Eat Pray Love star declared while out to dinner at the Gladstones eatery in Malibu with her three children — 5-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and 3-year-old son Henry. An eyewitness tells the National Enquirer that Julia, who’s married to cameraman Danny Moder, tossed back three Grey Goose vodka and tonic drinks during the meal at the seaside restaurant.

“I think Julia was clearly stressed out about her children,” says the source, who adds that Julia was also accompanied by Danny, a nanny and about a dozen other friends and family. “Her toddler, Henry, was squirming away from Julia and screaming that he wanted to go see ‘the fishies’ with his siblings. As soon as they kids were away from her, Julia pulled the waiter aside and ordered the first of three cocktails.” We’ve all been there, haven’t we, HollyMoms?
