Celebrity moms deserve more credit than they get. Raising kids is challenging enough, but doing it in the limelight, with millions looking on, only makes it harder.
To applaud cool moms who excel at celebrity motherhood without making costly compromises, here is a list of the top 5 celebrity moms.
1. Kim Kardashian
The star of the wildly popular reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim lives and breathes television. A socialite, businesswoman, actress, model and mother to two; Kim is a supermom who excels at many things.
Married to Kanye West, her two kids – Saint and North West – are one and three respectively. Kim loves motherhood and glows whenever she speaks about it. On a trip to Thailand in 2014, she unsuccessfully tried to adopt a 13-year-old girl named Pink.
2. Angelina Jolie
A celebrated actress, Angelina Jolie excels at motherhood as much as she shines on-screen. With six kids and the recent divorce from Brad Pitt haunting her, she deserves extra credit for remaining a committed, hands-on mom.
Three of her kids are adopted: Pax, Zahara and Maddox, aged 11, 10 and 14 respectively. Vivienne and Knox, her biological twins, are 7, while Shiloh is 10.
3. Jennifer Lopez
A famed singer and actress, Jennifer Lopez is the mother of adorable 9-year-old twins Max and Emme. With three ex-husbands at 47, plus several ex-boyfriends, Jennifer’s love life has been eventful, but she has managed raise her kids right thus far.
In a recent interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she brought the kids along, and they even joined her onstage. Emme took a seat on her lap, and Max ducked behind a chair. She got a little emotional, as she often does when speaking about motherhood.
4. Jennifer Garner
Celebrity actress and wife to Ben Affleck, Jennifer is most remembered for her starring role in the TV series “Alias.” Mother to Samuel (5), Seraphina (8) and Violet (11), celebrity motherhood seems to fit her perfectly.
Her family spends time together doing ordinary activities such as eating out, playing in the park, skating and attending the occasional birthday party, oblivious of the ever-present paparazzi. When it comes to balancing fame and parental duties, Jennifer Garner is undoubtedly a strong contender for the crown.
5. Michelle Obama
First Lady Michelle Obama thanks U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) employees for their service and dedication at the Jefferson Auditorium, USDA on Friday, May 3, 2013. The First Lady reminded federal workers of the importance of the work they do to support American farmers and ranchers, protecting the environment, lifting up rural communities, and keeping food safe, and working to end hunger.

Michelle is as cool a mom as she is strict. Even in the White House, her daughters Malia (18) and Sasha (15) were still not allowed to shirk duties, homework or the bedtime curfew. The scrutiny of being a former first lady notwithstanding, she expertly manages to balance a busy schedule with parental duties. She is often seen with her daughters at public events.
This list could go on and on, as there is no shortage of impressive celebrity moms deserving of praise. Such moms are a beacon of hope and a source of inspiration to all mothers, and they certainly deserve a pat on the back.
