Inspiring Celebrity Single Parents and their kids
Being a parent isn’t easy. Moreover, being a single parent is even more complicated. How about being a single parent in Hollywood? Well, that is undoubtedly a challenge. How do stars even juggle the glitz, the glamour, and the baby bottles and diapers at all?
We’re not just talking about having one child, either. A couple of celebrity single parents have multiple kids, but they manage to do all the investments on their own. How they manage to juggle raising their kids while doing their highly demanding jobs is entirely beyond us.
In this article, we’ll celebrate the club of single parents in Hollywood who have done tremendous jobs both as single parents and as stars in their own right. Regardless of how their kids arrived in their lives, these celebrities have inspired us by handling parenting with grace.
Read below to find out who these celebrity single parents are:
Kate Gosselin rose to international and national stardom through her and her ex-husband’s reality TV series, Jon & Kate Plus 8. The former couple raised their extensive family in front of the camera, with sextuplets and twins. Anyhow, when the two filed for legal separation with the help of their lawyers, Gosselin chose to bring the six kids with her. The remaining two, Hannah and Collin, will stay with their father.
Kate decided to take Aaden, Joel, Alexis, and Leah to move to North Carolina. Alternatively, the twins, Madelyn and Cara, who are now in their 20s, are both away to study college but may also stay with their mom. Since the show has ended, she has been keeping a low profile, while Jon has been making noise after becoming a DJ. Though they seem to be unfriendly to each other, they are surely looking properly after their kids.
Oscar-nominated actress and full-time single mom Michelle Williams may have it all, well, besides a good night’s sleep. She admitted to People that she feels “pretty exhausted” in raising her child and doing her show business job at the same time. The star, who is raising Matilda Rose, with the late actor Heath Ledger, has managed to bring up their daughter on her own.
Williams met The Dark Knight actor on the set of Brokeback Mountain back in 2004. Prior to his passing, however, the two had remained close despite breaking up, largely because of their daughter. The actress credits other single parents who went through the same circumstances as her in helping her cope with her loss. She said she would never recover from losing Ledger, but knowing other single parents who inspired her to move forward is “lifesaving to have.”
Katie Couric was married to lawyer Jay Monahan, who passed away in 1998, leaving her with two young daughters. To distract herself, she busied herself into her TV work, interviewing some of the most prominent people of our time. She also managed to raise her daughters, who have helped her through the grieving process. She said that the hardest part of raising her children is not having a partner to work with.
Today, her daughters are now all grown up and out of the house. The journalist remarried in 2014 to a banker named John Molner, who also got two grown children of his own. In an interview, Couric described that their families had a delayed Brady Bunch situation. Anyway, Couric is still active in the entertainment scene. She recently appeared as a guest host for Jeopardy!, becoming the first woman to host the American version of the game show.
Denise Richards’ separation from Charlie Sheen made headlines, and the actor was not able to secure custody of their two kids, Lola and Sam. With that said, Richards has full-time mother duties with her two little kiddos. Apparently, she takes them everywhere with her. With only a quick internet search, you’ll find countless candid photos of them.
Richards is quite a very hands-on mother, hanging out with her daughters at the playground and taking them to camp, which is a far cry from her glory days as a Bond girl. However, what she’s doing now is even beyond what a Bond girl can do. She adopted a third daughter named Eloise Joni Richards in June 2011 as a single parent. The actress adopted her at birth after a two-year adoption process with her lawyers. Outside of her work as a mom and an actress, Richards also dedicates much of her time to philanthropy.
When Liv Tyler broke up with her ex-husband Royston Langdon in 2009, she was left raising their baby boy named Milo, who was born in December 2004. She revealed to People that Milo calls her “precious,” which was her Lord of the Rings co-star Andy Serkis’ most famous line when he was playing Gollum.
The actress shared that she always dreamed of being a mom ever since she was a young girl. Since being a solo mom to her son, she cherished the role and decided to hire a moving company and raise her son in New York City. Adjusting to life as a solo parent took grit, and Tyler is not shy about admitting that her split with her ex was initially devastating. However, she met Dave Gardner in 2014, and Milo gained two other siblings: Lula Rose and Sailor Gene.
Malin Akerman has found the silver lining amid her breakup from her husband and single motherhood. She thanks her dad, Magnus Akerman, who is an insurance broker, model, and aerobics instructor, for being optimistic. The 43-year-old star saw her glass-half-full as she tried to bravely weather everything happening in her life.
Now that her six-year marriage with Roberto Zincone has ended, Akerman tries to see the best of it, like spending more time with her son, Sebastian Zincone. They now often go on trips together. He loves being aboard airplanes and even stays on the set as young as three months old. The child is well socialized, which may help him have a joyous childhood. Though Akerman strongly believes in discipline and consistency, she does not want her son to take life too seriously. She also wants Sebastian to have fun as she teaches him about respect and manners.
The 59-year-old singer Sheryl Crow recently opened up about her choice to adopt sons: Wyatt, in 2007, and Levi, in 2010. When she first thought of herself as a single mom, she struggled with breaking the norms she was raised with. For one, she was raised in a conventional household with her two parents still married. Still, she felt a degree of motherly instinct and desire to have children.
The family of three now lives in Nashville, where Crow desires to raise them with a normal childhood. She added that she is proud of them and wants them to live the life that they want. Raising her kids doesn’t mean that Crow doesn’t have time for music. She recently released what she describes as her final studio album, Threads. She also continues to write music that inspires other musicians that follow after her, including Taylor Swift.
The Portrait of a Lady star, Mary-Louise Parker, is a single mom to William and Caroline since her break-up with actor Billy Crudup, whom she split with while she was pregnant. Don’t get her wrong, though. She recently admitted that she gets more joy from being a mom than anything else she accomplishes.
The Emmy-winning actress once revealed the joys and challenges of raising two kids. She shared that life as a single mom may be challenging, but it is the most rewarding. She also refers to her kids as the “two coolest people” she has ever met, and she doesn’t need anything else. Today, the actress continues to make investments in the limelight. She is set to reprise her Weeds role as Nancy Botwin in its upcoming sequel. She also divides her time to work in theatre and the cinema.
In 2010, Sandra Bullock adopted newborn baby Louis Bardo while married to TV personality Jesse James. The two began the adoption process four years earlier but only got the call in January 2010, right in the middle of the Oscar season, when the actress was up for an award for her appearance in The Blind Side.
Even when she and James decided to go their separate ways, Bullock was just as happy to be raising Louis on her own. She even welcomed another child named Laila in 2015, who was previously in foster care. The Miss Congeniality star seems to be wholeheartedly embracing single parenthood. She credits her son for “spearheading this whole journey” of adding Laila into their growing family. Bullock takes her job as a solo mom very seriously, just as she does with all her movie projects.
Halle Berry joined the ranks of celebrity single parents when she and her boyfriend Gabriel Aubry split up. The actress has since forged an amicable relationship with her ex for the sake of their daughter, Nahla, saying that when one becomes a parent, they will look at the world “a little bit differently.”
The award-winning actress gave birth to her daughter Nahla with Aubrey back in 2008, and five years later, she welcomed Maceo with film actor Olivier Martinez. Berry noted that she likes being a single mother after a series of failed relationships. According to her, she will take a minute and spend time with herself and her kids to the degree that she might stay as a solo mom for a long time. Well, it’s safe to say that as tough as she is on screen, she’s also a resilient woman in real life.
Kate Winslet has been married thrice and has welcomed three kids: Joe, Mia, and Bear. She is currently married to Edward Abel Smith and was formerly linked to Sam Mendes for eight years and Jim Threapleton for three years. Suffice to say, she has had three kids from three different husbands. She had to raise her kids as a solo parent and juggle her movie work for a while.
When asked about how it feels like to be a single mother, Winslet said, “it doesn’t matter whether you’re famous or not. You have to carry on because you have to.” Meanwhile, the Titanic actress continues to make investments both in cinema and television until today. She has an upcoming appearance in Avatar 2 and serves as the lead star and executive producer of the television show Mare of Easttown— what a supermom!
After splitting with Chris Robinson in 2006, and dating bachelors like Lance Armstrong, Owen Wilson, and Alex Rodriguez, Kate Hudson may be a lot of things, but she’s a doting mother first and foremost. Of course, her fans best know her as a movie actress, an author, and an entrepreneur. Despite her many investments, she admitted that being a single mom isn’t easy, saying that she’s doing the best she can.
Hudson also shared that she does her best to have a healthy relationship with her sons’ dads: Matthew Bellamy and Chris Robinson. The Deepwater Horizon actress once wrote an essay about her life as a solo mom. In it, she noted that there are times that she had to be away from her kids in order to work, which is a price she has to pay as a working mom and a celebrity parent.
Padma Lakshmi once opened up about how she juggles her ever-growing business empire and motherhood. Being a single mother certainly isn’t easy, but it’s something the Top Chef host considers an absolute privilege. She revealed to the New York Post that a single mom raised her, and being a solo mom herself is the “only way of life” she has known.
As most probably know, Lakshmi has a lot on her plate. In addition to her duties as a solo parent and as a TV host, she also manages several home accessory brands and a frozen food line. She even co-chairs the Endometriosis Foundation of America. She credits her nanny for helping her raise her child. When asked for a bit of advice she could give to other single moms, she said: “learn how to prioritize.” “Attack your list in order,” she added.
As a mom to Henry Story, Minnie Driver has described the first year of parenthood as an “insane earthquake.” The singer and actress has kept mum on the identity of Henry’s father, adding that he knew about the child, but he doesn’t want to be involved. As for flying solo, she once revealed that she goes online to learn some parenting tips from other moms. She also said that her son Henry “is worth the effort” of raising him all by herself.
Today, Driver remains active in the show business. She recently started her podcast called Minnie Questions with Minnie Driver. In the series, she sits down with trailblazers across various disciplines and asks them the same seven questions. Some notable guests so far were Nick Jonas, Chelsea Clinton, and Cindy Crawford. She also has a movie credit in the upcoming Cinderella film.
Supermodel Kate Moss may be recognized for her high-profile fashion lifestyle, but to her daughter Lila Grace, she is a wonderful mom. The duo reportedly lives in a $19 million townhouse in London, and we suppose Lila Grace enjoys her lavish house with home security.
During Lila’s 7th birthday, Moss definitely got major “cool mom” points for the elegant birthday party she threw for her daughter. The supermodel may be well-known for her fun-loving lifestyle, but she admitted in an interview that she’s quite the opposite when it comes to her parenting style. The supermodel revealed that she is “stricter than most parents.” She clarified that “you have to scare your daughters because otherwise, they will take over.” We’re not sure if she’s speaking from her own experience, but as far as we know, it seems that her parenting style works for Lila.
Much has been said about Britney Spears’ life. However, today, she’s doing her best as a single mom. The Stronger songstress revealed that while it can be hard raising her two kids on her own, they’re her number 1 priority. In an interview with People, the pop star expressed that there is nothing more rewarding than watching her sons grow into young men.
Spears shares her kids with former husband Kevin Federline, whom she broke up with in 2007. Although the pair have remained amicable for the sake of their kids, the pop star opened up that co-parenting isn’t always easy, and the balance between work investments and personal life can be a challenge. Judging by her recent photos on Instagram, where she is constantly sharing sweet snaps with her boys, we can say Spears’ role as a single mom is the one she enjoys the most.
Amber Heard surprised everyone with the news that she is now a mother. In a post on Instagram, the Aquaman star introduced her baby to the public. The kid’s name is Oonagh, and she was born in April 2021. Though she was married to Johnny Depp before, Heard cleared she had no partner in this new parenthood journey.
The 35-year-old star revealed she decided to be a mother four years ago and wanted to do it on her own terms. She is now looking forward to the time that it will become normal for a woman to have a child even if she is not married or have a partner. Heard is not the only woman who chose to be a solo parent. There are many people who did the same thing, carving their own way to parenthood without the help of a partner, and they should receive credits for this bravery.
Mindy Kaling has two kids, a three-year-old daughter, Katherine, and an eight-month-old son, Spencer, and she is raising them alone. Despite the degree of hardships, the 42-year-old star said it was a wonderful experience, but she was not sure if she could recommend it to everyone. Kaling had a secret pregnancy and said she had learned a lot from it. It was a once-a-lifetime type of thing for her.
She knows being a single mom is not for everyone, so she is thankful that she now gets a hand. Kaling admits she only succeeds in looking after her two kids on her own due to the help she gets from her full-time nanny and a retired dad. However, if there is one thing that she finds the most challenging in being a solo parent, it is trying to remove all the risk for her kids.
Charlize Theron has never been married. In fact, she admitted she never wanted to get married at all. Although the 45-year-old star had been through many relationships before, she now chose to be on her own and take care of her two kids, Jackson and August Theron. She adopted Jackson from South Africa back in 2012, while August joined the family three years later in 2015.
The F9 star said she was perfectly happy to be not in any relationship as marriage is not important to her. Despite being single, she has never been lonely and alone. Though she enjoys going out on dates every once in a while, she is unsure if she will live with somebody again. Though she probably has no problem paying for the mortgage, Theron is uncertain if she can deal with it again, seeing herself as too old for this thing.
Connie Britton had always wanted to have a family of her own, and though she was single, she would never let it get in her way. The actress knew a man would come any time in her life, and if she wanted to have kids, she could easily do that. Knowing the rising issue of the orphan crisis in Africa, Britton instantly knew where she would find the child she wanted.
In 2011, she welcomed her son, Yoby. The 54-year-old star called her kid’s arrival as a “wonderful and life-changing experience.” Ever since her son came into her life, the kid had motivated Britton in ways she never expected. Everything she would say to him became a song; they seemed to be always in a musical. Fortunately, the kid could not make a complaint yet at the time, let alone call their family attorney.
Diane Keaton is her own person. Just like other brave girls on this list, she never lets society or the norm dictate what she must do. In addition to her successful career and lots of credits, the 75-year-old industry icon also chose to be a single mother to her two kids, Dexter and Duke Keaton, in her 50s. Sure, she has dated a number of equally iconic Hollywood actors, like Al Pacino, Woody Allen, and Warren Beatty, but it looks like she has not seen the guy she wants to spend the rest of her life with.
Anyhow, as Keaton wanted to have a family of her own, she adopted her daughter, Dexter, in 1996. After five years, she adopted a son, Duke. The Annie Hall star said becoming a mom helped her become a better person. It made her realized that she was completely self-involved, and that changed when they arrived.
When Elizabeth Hurley was pregnant with her only child, Damian Hurley, she was looking forward to raising her alone. Although the now-56-year-old star admitted that the father of her child was Steven Bing, she decided to be a solo parent because the millionaire film producer was not yet ready to be a dad back then. After she broke the news to Bing, they decided to break up.
According to reports, Bing never expected Hurley to get pregnant, and his reaction to the pregnancy was the complete opposite of his then-girlfriend. Anyhow, credits to Hurley’s friends, she got a massive and strong support system. In fact, when she went on her first prenatal check-up, she was accompanied by none other than her former boyfriend, Hugh Grant. Though they had already broken up, they remained to be amicable to each other. Grant might have even played a major role in Hurley’s son’s life.
January Jones has already found the man she will love for the rest of her life in her nine-year-old son, Xander Dane Jones. Though she is a single mother, the 43-year-old star revealed her kid has many male role models in his life. In an interview, Jones said Xander has a lot of bro time with neighbor dads and her own dad, whom she called still “super young.”
Jones even describes herself as a “strong woman” who is around a man and can teach him to respect every lady. She even feels thankful that no man in her kid’s life will tell him not to cry like a girl that she says dads accidentally do often. With that, Jones believes Xander does not need a stepfather, let alone she needs a partner. Jones added that she never feels alone or unhappy to any degree, having her son by her side.
Kristin Davis admitted that being a mother is a lot different on-screen compared to off-screen. Everything was perfect on her hit HBO show, but all of it is messy and real in real life. The 56-year-old star is raising her two kids, Gemma Rose and Wilson Davis, on her own. Indeed, it is a big challenge for her to be a solo parent, but she knows it is her job and duty.
Davis is doing her work right, taking advantage of her electricity to research as much as she can to raise African-American kids. She wants to build as many bridges as possible, as she is the only community her kids have. The 56-year-old star revealed she is working hard every day to figure out how she could make sure Gemma and Wilson have access to the Black community. Thankfully, through Davis’ hard work, the kids remain part of it.
Taraji P. Henson
Taraji P. Henson was still working on her degree at Howard University when she became pregnant with her child, Marcell Johnson. With only $700 borrowed money in hand, the actress and her baby moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams as an actress. Between acting and looking after a child, Henson said they had done their best, and she knew they could do it all.
However, knowing the hardships of being a single parent, she said she would never wish it even on her worst enemy. Anyhow, while raising her son, Henson revealed she never sheltered Johnson so that he could be prepared for the problems that would come his way. Talking about her own love life, the Empire star revealed she would only get married if she had already found someone who she truly loved. Henson also wanted her son to see the kind of real love that she yearned for.
Amanda Stanton is proud of being a single parent to her two kids, Kinsley and Charlie Buonfiglio. Despite raising them on her own, Stanton is happy with the path she has made for them. She makes sure the kids have the best situation possible. It looks like they will not even have any problem at all, even money and student loans.
Stanton admitted it takes constant work to manage everything she is going through, but she does her best to balance all of her obligations. She goes to different phases in her life to see where she lacks to give some attention. As the reality star works on her book before, she knows she has been mostly focused on her work. Despite that, Stanton swears her kids remain her number one priority. Of course, she knows she also has to work on herself.
Jewel acknowledges the significant change of raising her child, Kase Townes Murray, after her breakup from former husband Ty Murray, as it was one of the biggest challenges in her life. Now that they are co-parenting, they always have to put their child first. She will either take her deepest breath or just let go when she finds it hard to do this process. Anyhow, the country singer knows kindness is the only way to go.
Jewel revealed she never wishes her son to be perfect. She only wants him to be kind to himself and be a work in progress. The singer is also grateful that she can bring Kase to work and she does not have to leave him at a daycare center. Instead, she can teach him when they travel together. Though the kid is yet to show if he is going to follow in his mom’s footsteps, Jewel is giving her credits for being capable at an early age.
Although Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are amicable, the actress admits co-parenting is not always easy for them. They also have a lot of ups and downs. The Iron Man star says it is like ending their marriage but staying as a family. However, despite the hardships, the actress says they have the same purpose of unity and love to do what is best for the kids.
Thankfully, Paltrow’s relationship with Martin is much better today than when they were married. She even gives credits to the doctor that gave them a rubric so that they could successfully co-parent their kids. The businesswoman said they had to have radical accountability and know that every relationship is 50/50. Paltrow added she had to be brave enough to be responsible for her half and her own faults and trauma and how it affected their relationship.
Bridget Moynahan had a rocky start with motherhood, but the actress says she would not change a thing.
The Blue Bloods actress became the topic of all headlines back in 2006 after she announced that she was expecting her first child with NFL superstar Tom Brady. The only problem was, the couple had already broken up, and Brady has already moved on with Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen. Although it was an extremely tricky situation to navigate, Moynahan made it work just fine. According to the actress, she never had dreams of getting married and building a large traditional family, so single motherhood is suited for her just fine. The actress and the American football star had co-parented through the years, with their son, John Edward, living primarily with his mother. Given the former couple’s income, we’re confident that they’ve made all the suitable investments to ensure their son’s future.
It’s not too often that we see pregnancies being hidden successfully in Hollywood, and especially not among celebrities as big as the Kardashian-Jenner clan. However, Kylie Jenner pulled it off without so much as breaking a sweat.
The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan sent the Hollywood media into a frenzy when she unexpectedly announced the birth of her daughter, Stormi Webster, back in 2018. The make-up mogul and her beau, Travis Scott, broke the announcement through her YouTube channel in a video titled, To Our Daughter. Dropping an announcement that big in a place like Hollywood is unheard of, but Jenner did it with the help of her tight-lipped friends. The status of Jenner and Scott’s relationship is unclear at the moment, but the two are undoubtedly co-parenting their adorable daughter. However, despite Jenner being a single mom, we believe she and Travis got the appropriate insurance to ensure Stormi’s well-being.
The next Kardashian-Jenner on our list is none other than the vibrant and free-spirited character that is Khloe Kardashian. Besides being a member of one of the most famous Hollywood clans, Kardashian is also quite known for her colorful love life. The youngest of the Kardashian sister has had some ups and downs with her romantic life over the years, but nowadays, she focuses all her love and attention on her beautiful daughter, True Thompson.
True is Kardashian’s daughter with NBA superstar Tristan Thompson. Unfortunately, they have been on and off over the years. The Kardashian sister is currently a single mom to her daughter but shares custody with her former flame. Regardless of their relationship status, however, we’re certain that Kardashian and Thompson can afford to make lavish investments for their daughter. This is quite evident in the stylish lifestyle that 3-year-old True enjoys.
Hollywood is filled with single moms who actively chose motherhood without the help of a partner. Edie Falco is one of them.
After two failed relationships and an almost fatal diagnosis, Falco decided that it was time to have kids. At 48 years old, she became a mother to her two adopted children, Anderson and Macy. Having kids was initially not a part of her plans, but after considering the thought when she was still in a relationship, Falco gave it a go. However, the American actress is not alone in her journey through motherhood. The actress opened that her friends often lend her a helping hand in raising her kids. This has, of course, given her a great degree of comfort, considering that she is raising two kids on her own. The Nurse Jackie star also brings her kids to red carpet events every now and then. However, only time will tell if they’ll follow in their mom’s footsteps.
Model turned actress Mia Farrow has had a very colorful yet challenging life under the spotlight.
This single mother has been the topic of headlines over the years, thanks to her high-profile marriages and relationships. This model turned actress was first married to American crooner Frank Sinatra from 1966 to 1968. After lawyers finalized her separation from Sinatra, Farrow moved on and married musical conductor Andre Previn, with whom she had six children. After separating from Previn, Farrow continued growing her family and adopted Dylan and Moses Farrow. Soon, the actress met Woody Allen and started a family with him as well. Together with Allen, Farrow had five more children, four of whom were adopted. Unfortunately, the actress separated from Allen in 1992 and spent the following years as a single mother. Her children are all grown up now and are finding their own place in the world.
America’s sweetheart Meg Ryan was on top of the world back in the ‘90s with a thriving career and a seemingly happy marriage to actor Dennis Quaid. However, when lawyers dissolved their marriage, the actress decided to take a step back from acting and focus on herself and her two children.
Ryan is a mom to two beautiful children, her biological son Jack and her adopted daughter Daisy True. Her two kids are all grown up now, but she is still very much hands-on, especially with her 17-year-old daughter, Daisy. According to the actress, she has a very special bond with her youngest, saying that meeting her was almost magical. However, not much is known about Daisy since the actress basically raised her away from the spotlight. However, with a doting mother like Ryan, we’re confident that Daisy is getting all the love and support she needs.
When it comes to becoming a parent, Andy Cohen was done waiting!
The Watch What Happens Live host announced back in 2019 that he would be welcoming a son via surrogate and as a single father. Like many other single parents, Cohen also did not want to approach parenthood alone. However, time was of the essence, and he wasn’t getting any younger. Single and in his 50s, Cohen took a chance and enlisted the help of a surrogate and welcomed his son, Benjamin, on February 4, 2019. With a net worth of around $50 million and a thriving television career, we’re certain that he will be able to afford all the right investments for his son’s future. Right now, however, the late show host is keeping everything about his son under wraps and rarely comes out in public with him.
Technically speaking, Calista Flockhart is no longer a single mom. However, there was a point in her life that she had to fly solo raising her son, Liam.
With the help of her lawyers, the Brothers and Sisters actress adopted her son, Liam, back in 2001. Soon after the actress took Liam in, she quickly retreated from the spotlight to focus her attention on raising her son. Then, by 2002, Flockhart crossed paths with veteran actor Harrison Ford and soon began dating. Right off the bat, Harrison assumed the father role for Liam. He even opened up about their family setting and commented that his wife of 11 years has done an incredible job raising Liam. Flockhart’s son is all grown up now and is on his way to college. The family recently made headlines when they were spotted taking a stylish private plane to help Liam move into his dormitory.
Camryn Manheim is an American actress best known for her roles in The Practice and Ghost Whisperer. Beyond the spotlight, however, she is simply known as mom to 20-year-old Milo Manheim.
As a single mother, Manheim would often take her son with her wherever she goes. Whether it’s shoots or red-carpet events, when Manheim is there, you best believe her son is too. This is probably why the young Manheim also developed the same passion for acting like his mother. So far, the young aspiring actor has earned major credits in two projects; Disney’s Zombie and 2018 Dancing With The Stars. Although he has a long way to go to achieve the same success his mom has, we’re pretty sure that he’s getting all the support and guidance he needs. He might also pursue music as he is pretty talented with the piano, guitar, and ukelele.
Madonna is definitely an all-around superwoman. Not only is she a living pop legend, but she’s also a super mom to her children.
The Queen of Pop has six children: Lourdes, Rocco, David Banda, Mercy James, Esther, and Stella. Her eldest, Lourdes, is all grown up now and has just finished a degree from the University of Michigan’s School of Music, Theatre, & Dance. While Lourdes is now trying to find her footing in the real world, Madonna is shifting her focus to her younger children, particularly David. The singer’s third child is currently training to become a professional football in Portugal, prompting the pop singer to uproot her life and move to Europe. It’s such a big move for the Queen of Pop, and she even admitted to feeling lonely at times. However, she also stated that her children’s dreams and future come first, and so she’s willing to stay with his son until he’s ready to strike out on his own.
Before Miranda Kerr became Evan Speigel’s other half, the Australian supermodel had to spend some time being a single mom to her first son, Flynn.
Kerr was married to British actor Orlando Bloom for three years before enlisting her lawyer’s help to dissolve their marriage in 2013. After her split with the Pirates of the Caribbean star, Kerr juggled her time between being a supermodel and a full-time mom. That meant that she had to carry her then 3-year-old son around as she jet-sets across the globe. Fortunately, she co-parented with her ex, Bloom, so whenever the little man wasn’t with his momma, she’d be hanging around his dad’s lavish homes. However, the Australian model has since transitioned from being a single mom to being a wife and mother of three after marrying Snapchat founder Speigel. Several of the couple’s closest friends have said that the two are meant for each other, so I guess Kerr will have someone to lean on forever.
Sadie Frost has reinvented her career a couple of times over the decades, but she is a mom first and foremost.
The actress turned fashion designer was first married to Garry Kemp from 1988 to 1995. Together, they had one child, a son named Finlay, born in 1990. Five years after the couple welcomed their only son, they decided to part ways. Shortly after her split with her former spouse, Frost began dating actor Jude Law and tied the knot with him back in 1997. During their six-year-long marriage, Frost and Law welcomed three kids, Rafferty, Iris, and Rudy. Sadly, she went back to being a single mom when she and Law called quits on their marriage in 2003. Following their separation, the former couple agreed to co-parent their children and create joint investments geared towards ensuring their future. She has not remarried and is currently focusing her attention on her children and her career.
American socialite Kimberly Stewart once spent her days partying it up in the poshest nightclubs across the globe. Nowadays, instead of living up to her party-girl persona, Stewart has her hands full in being a mom to Delilah Genoveva Stewart.
On August 21, 2011, Stewart welcomed her daughter and announced it to fans through Benicio del Torro’s publicist, her partner at that time.
