Happy Mother's Day!
It's that special time of year when so many come together to celebrate all the amazing moms out there — and when it comes to parenting, sometimes celebrities really are just like us.
Scroll through the gallery below see some of the most famous celebrity moms.
Chrissy Teigen has had her ups and downs over the years, but through it all one thing is clear — she adores being a mom. The model shares Luna Simone, 6, and Miles Theodore, 3, with her husband, John Legend.
The loved-up duo are currently trying for another baby almost two years after their heartbreaking miscarriage. Teigen has since candidly shared her IVF journey with friends and fans in a series of Instagram snaps.
Michelle Obama couldn't be prouder of her daughters! The former First Lady shares Malia, 23, and Sasha, 20, with presidential hubby Barack Obama. During an April 19 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she gushed about how much her daughters have grown, and confessed her parenting style was inspired by her own mom.
"I listened to what my mother said when she was raising us," she told the famed show host. "She said, 'I'm not raising babies, I'm raising real people to be out in the world.' And I just kept that in mind with the girls."
Jennifer Garner is a hands-on mom!
Although she chooses not to show her kids' faces on social media — she shares Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9 with A-Lister ex Ben Affleck — she is often spotted spending quality time with her children, whether they are trick-or-treating at Halloween or out for a walk in sunny Los Angeles.
While the Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum always has a lot on her plate, things got especially hectic during the final season of the hit reality series when she was juggling work, mom duties and studying ten to twelve hours per day for the "baby bar" exam.
Despite recently admitting to photoshopping True into Kardashian-Jenner family photos at Disneyland, the adorable four-year-old can be found all over Kardashian's social media. She even threw her a lavish kitten-themed birthday party! Talk about a fun mom!
To quote Mean Girls, Mariah Carey says she is not like a regular mom, she's a cool mom! The singer welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe with ex-hubby Nick Cannon in 2011 when she was 41-years-old. She recently opened up in an interview with UsWeekly about how her kids feel about her star status.
"They’re aware of the success, the records and this new diamond certification," she spilled to the outlet. "They see these things and they see it on a list with songs of like the most current artists. Then they see it at No. 1 and they’re like, ‘What in the world?'"
All the affection! Mom-of-three Hilary Duff once came under fire for kissing her then 3-year-old son, Luca, on the lips (she shares the now 9-year-old with ex Mike Comrie.) The Lizzie McGuire actress — who also has Banks Violet, 3, and Mae James, 1, with hubby Matthew Koma — was quick to clap back.
"First of all, he was 3," she said in an interview with InStyle. "Kiss your kids, and anyone who doesn’t like it can hit unfollow. Not interested in what you have to say."
A doting mom! Jennifer Lopez may be an international superstar, but she always takes time for her kids.
The "Let's Get Loud" singer is often spotted out and about with her 14-year-old twins Max and Emme — whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony — from spending the day at Universal Studios Hollywood to stopping for ice cream.
A heart for adoption! Angelina Jolie is easily one of the most famous mothers in the world. She adopted her oldest child, Maddox, 20, from Cambodia when he was only 7-months-old, followed by Pax, 18, who she adopted the following year in Vietnam.
