People magazine has its world-famous “Most Beautiful People” list and Maxim has its “Hot 100.”
It seems everyone has a list…
So, to celebrate Mother’s Day we decided to put together a list of our very own. This list is who we consider to be the best celebrity moms around. These moms rise above the rest of the celebs!
While many may think that Blue Ivy is a debatable name, one thing that isn’t debatable is that Queen B has earned her title. She owns the stage, the dance floor, and she is one fierce mama. Beyoncé is well known for putting Blue’s privacy ahead of everything else. She credits her mother Tina Knowles with making her the woman and the mom that she’s become. “My biggest hero is and always will be my mother. She has taught me about caring for others, working hard and working smart.”
2. Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba has two adorable daughters and something most Hollywood stars dream of: a spotless reputation. Alba knows that her work affects her family, which is why she firmly believes that family comes first. She’s known to enforce a “please and thank you” rule, and vegetables are a regular part of the family diet. Since becoming a mom, Alba has started not only a family and eco-friendly brand, The Honest Company, which provides natural diapers, body care and non-toxic cleaning products, but she has also founded the Baby2Baby charity organization.
3. Alyson Hannigan
It’s easy to see that Alyson Hannigan loves nothing more than being a mom. The actress glows with the joy of parenting. Whether on the set of “How I Met Your Mother,” or out with husband Alexis Denisof, she’s clearly a doting and patient mom. In interviews, she’s often said that “motherhood is just the greatest thing ever!” and that “there are so many cherished moments in every day.”
4. Sarah Michelle Gellar
Maybe there was something in the water on set of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” since Hannigan’s co-star Sarah Michelle Gellar also glows with the joy of parenting. The proud mother has two children with husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. Gellar credits her healthy lifestyle to firstborn, Charlotte. “We’ve already taught her to love healthy food…we go to the farmer’s market and put everything in the juicer. Now we’ve all been drinking it, and we’ve all been healthier.”
5. Michelle Obama
There’s nothing quite like the chaos of simultaneously being the first lady of the United States as well as a mother of two teenage girls. Michelle is well known for healthy living initiatives, an iconic style, and a down-to-earth relationship with the President. However, she always puts her responsibilities as a parent first by making sure her daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 17, work hard and stay humble. The Obamas have even decided to not return to their native Chicago when the President finishes his 2nd term. Rather, they are opting to stay in the capital so that Sasha can finish up at her school.
6. Jennifer Garner
It’s nearly impossible to find a photo of Jennifer Garner without at least one of her three kids being in it. Based on her family priorities and absence from the tabloids, she definitely earns a spot on our list.
7. Angelina Jolie
There’s no denying that Angelina Jolie’s life is often controversial. But at the same time, you can’t deny her generosity and dedication to parenting. She and husband Brad Pitt have six children — three of whom they adopted. The couple are also known for their great generosity, having donated many millions to causes such as UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, Women in the World, UNHCR and the ONE campaign. When asked what her secret was to keeping the family so close, she said: “We have dinner together every night. No video games at the table, and mom and dad have to turn their phones off.”
8. Michelle Williams
Michelle Williams has been a devoted mom ever since the birth of her daughter Matilda, but it was after the very public loss of late ex, Heath Ledger, that she really proved to be the best mom ever. Williams has managed to keep the life of her children private and productive. She actively avoids Los Angeles because the paparazzi disrupts the life of her children.
9. Jillian Michaels
Since going public with fiance Heidi Rhoades, Michaels has called the transition to motherhood “magical, meaningful, rewarding…and chaotic.” Michaels and Rhoades adopted their then-two-year-old daughter from Haiti in May 2012, and Rhoades gave birth to a son that same month. Michaels makes the list of great celebrity moms based on her confidence, healthy lifestyle beliefs, and endless ability to find a silver lining when there are struggles.
10. Tori Spelling
Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott are definetely two of Hollywood’s most devoted and doting parents! The former “90210” beauty is constantly sharing adorable photos of her ever growing family on social media.
