Gal Gadot's Daughter's Fave Superhero Is... Not Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman's kid wants to hang with this superhero instead

Wonder Woman star and Israeli native Gal Gadot told E! News that her elder daughter, Alma, is pretty meh about Mom's famous character. However, Alma "really likes Batman," Gadot explained with what we can only assume was a shrug and an eye roll. As for Gadot's younger daughter, Maya — she's only 9 months old and just wants her lunch, thanks very much.

"I am their mother, so it is like, ‘Mom, I am hungry,'" Gadot joked in the interview. She continued, "At the house I am the mother; I am not the star or the character or anything." Take heart, Gal: At least you're definitely Chris Hemsworth's kids' favorite superhero. And if Thor's kids love you, you win.

Gadot occasionally posts sweet snaps to Instagram about her decidedly un-Marvelesque but definitely marvelous mom life — such as this selfie taken after very little sleep.

Gadot captioned the post, "Sleepless night, colic 3 months old baby and an early wake up by my 5 year old. Went to the garden to get some fresh air with my coffee to help me wake up and now watching The Cat In The Hat with my daughter. It always amazes me how the most simple things are the ones to make us the happiest."

The Insider reports that Gadot loathed being away from her family while filming Wonder Woman — for which she was working six days a week for six months straight. "Back then, I only had my 6-year-old, and I couldn't spend enough time with her," Gadot said. "I felt so guilty... I brought her to set and I did FaceTime with her the entire time. We brought family to be with her. It's been like a circus."

According to The Insider, Alma wanted her mom to tuck her in the night reviews were first coming in for the film. "I told her, 'I will put you to bed,'" said Gadot. "'I'm going to read a story, but by nine, I [have] got to work.'" Alma was having none of that, though, so Gadot read the reviews in her daughter's room, thrilled that the feedback for Wonder Woman was so positive.

Alma may prefer Batman, but she was psyched about her mom's good reviews. "All of a sudden, Alma was sitting like this next to me, looking into my eye and jumped, hugging me," Gadot explained to The Insider. "And she said, 'I'm so proud of you, Mommy.'"

Awww. Sounds like Alma might be a Wonder Woman fan after all. Take that, Bruce Wayne.
