With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we thought we’d take a look at our favourite celebrity Mums. We don’t mean the ones who look fabulous while a nanny corrals the children behind a huge entourage, we mean the ones who get down and dirty with the family duties and make motherhood look like a true pleasure:
Despite her recent troubles with estranged Husband Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner always looks amazingly composed and relaxed when out and about with daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel. It’s also difficult to believe, with her youthful good looks, that she’s actually 44! Having fun with your kids clearly helps you to stay young.
Blake Lively, wife of Ryan Reynolds, is one half of the most ridiculously good-looking couple on the planet (with the clearest skin we’ve ever seen, too!), and when it comes to their son James they seem to be equally hands-on. Blake was famously papped in a bikini, breastfeeding her little dude, and is known to gush about family life whenever she’s interviewed.
Adele is fast becoming a national treasure and recently shared an anecdote during an interview that one of her fans described spotting her as “like seeing a unicorn” as it was so rare! Adele replied “I am not a recluse, I go out every day! I’ve been to every park, every museum, every supermarket, every shopping centre, what do you think I do on a rainy day with my kid? I don’t lock him up inside.” – seems like Adele is a natural at this ‘mum’ thing!
Blue Ivy Carter, better known as the daughter of singer Beyonce and her Husband Jay-Z probably isn’t having your average childhood (it was reported that her first birthday party cost $200,000…which doesn’t factor in the $80,000 jewel-encrusted Barbie she was also bought) but there’s no doubt that her Mama loves her and is as hands-on as she can possibly be. Blue is often snapped at her Mum’s rehearsals or on her lap while she’s getting her make-up done and she seems like she enjoys every minute.
Sarah Jessica Parker
SJP and husband Matthew Broderick had their twins, Marion and Tabitha, via surrogate back in 2009 and barely a week has gone by without a picture of the family strolling around Manhattan together showing up somewhere. Sarah never fails to look stylish and sleek, while the girls look at ease in the Big Apple and they paint a true picture of familial bliss.
