Sometimes it’s hard for fans to imagine that the celebrity they worship is actually someone’s mom or dad. That’s right: Beyoncé dictates somebody’s bedtime and Kim Kardashian has to think about what to pack in lunch boxes. We tend to think of actors, musicians and sporting stars as idols on a pedestal, and while they are talented, beautiful, hardworking and all the rest of it, we should remember that they’re also human beings with families and relationships of their own.
Personally, we love being reminded that our favorite celebrities are parents too. For one thing, not much is cuter than a snap of a superstar with their gorgeous baby or toddler. But it also helps us to respect them on a whole different level—being a mom or dad is tough, no matter who you are! All parents should be celebrated for their hard work and persistence.
We’re especially interested in keeping up with the children of the rich and famous because there’s a good chance they’ll end up doing something pretty fantastic one day, just like their celebrity parents! Check out these pictures of the most doting celebrity moms and dads with their super cute kiddies.
25 Blake Lively And Daughter James
Doesn’t James look like a little Blake here! We first fell in love with Blake when she brought Gossip Girl’s Serena van der Woodsen to life, and by extension, we have a soft spot for her two children with husband Ryan Reynolds: James and Inez.
This snap was taken while Blake was on the set of her latest blockbuster hit A Simple Favour.
James is named after Ryan’s late father, James Reynolds, who passed away shortly after James was born.
24 Kylie Jenner And Daughter Stormi
We’re losing count of how many kids make up the latest generation of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but Stormi is the first child for youngest sister, Kylie Jenner. Look at those chubby cheeks! Since giving birth to Stormi back in February 2018, Kylie has revealed that her daughter with rapper Travis Scott is her “happy place”. Kylie isn’t afraid to bless us with endless adorable pictures of her and Stormi on her Instagram and Snapchat, for which we’re totally grateful.
23 Ciara And Son Future
It seemed like only yesterday Ciara burst onto the scene with her hit 1,2 Step, but now she’s a grownup with two bubs of her own!
In May 2014, she gave birth to her first child Future Zahir Wilburn, shortly before breaking up with his rapper father (also named Future) in August of that year.
In April 2017, she gave birth to daughter Sienna Princess Wilson, after marrying Sienna’s father, Russell Wilson in 2016. We can’t wait to see what these kids get up to in the future!
22 Channing Tatum And Daughter Everly
We’re still devastated that Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have called it quits after nine years of marriage. But the most important thing is that they’re both still there for their daughter, Everly Elizabeth Maiselle Tatum, who was born in 2013. We can tell from the pictures that this is one little girl who is very loved! Both of Everly’s middle names were actually inspired by Channing and Jenna’s grandmothers. Jenna’s grandmother was called Elizabeth, and Channing’s was Maiselle.
21 Mila Kunis And Daughter Wyatt
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher just might be one of our favorite couples in Hollywood. That’s partly because we watched their relationship evolve from co-stars to soulmates, and partly because their kids are the cutest.
Their first daughter, Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher arrived in October 2014, followed by son Dimitri Portwood Kutcher, who was born in November 2016.
Mila has been adamant about not spoiling her children and trying to keep them out of the spotlight as she brings them up.
20 Beyonce And Daughter Blue Ivy
Beyoncé is probably one of the most famous moms on the planet and revealed her first pregnancy with daughter Blue Ivy in the most Beyoncé way possible: on stage at the VMAs in 2011. It’s hard to believe Blue is already six years old and holds the throne as one of the most famous celebrity children of our time. That said, lately, the focus has been on her younger siblings, twins Sir and Rumi Carter who were born in June 2017.
19 Serena Williams And Daughter Alexis Olympia
Serena Williams is a true role model for moms everywhere. We think women’s rights are about women’s choice, and there’s nothing wrong with staying home and looking after children if that’s a woman’s preference.
Serena’s preference was to get back out onto the tennis court, which she did eight months after giving birth to baby Alexis Olympia in September 2017.
That’s a huge inspiration for women who want to get back to work but don’t have the confidence or the motivation to do it.
18 Neil Patrick Harris And Kids Harper Grace And Gideon Scott
If there’s one thing we love more than celebrity kids, it’s celebrity twin kids! Gideon Scott and Harper Grace were born to Neil Patrick Harris, and now-husband David Burtka, via surrogate in 2008. The wedding, which took place in Italy in 2014, was officiated by Pamela Fryman, Neil’s director on How I Met Your Mother. Elton John performed at the reception, and we can only imagine that it would have been magical! The family now resides in Manhattan.
17 Janet Jackson And Son Eissa
Iconic singer Janet Jackson first announced she was pregnant in 2016, after marrying partner of two years, Wissam Al Mana, in 2012. She gave birth to gorgeous bundle Eissa Al Mana in January 2017. A family source told People that Janet “couldn’t be a better mom. She is very attached to Eissa and feels worried about him when he isn’t with her.” We can tell from the array of snaps of these two that Janet is an awesome and loving mom.
16 Natalie Portman And Daughter Amalia
Natalie Portman met her husband Benjamin Millepied on the set of Black Swan, for which he was the choreographer.
After announcing their engagement at the end of 2010, Natalie gave birth to their first son Aleph in June 2011. A few years later in February 2017, a little sister for Aleph, named Amalia, followed.
The family spent a few years living in Paris, so that Benjamin could direct the Paris Opera Ballet, before returning to Los Angeles in 2016.
15 Pink And Kids Jameson And Willow
In 2010, Pink announced that she and longtime partner Carey Hart were expecting their first child. She gave birth to Willow Sage Hart in 2011, and in 2016, gave birth to second child, Jameson Moon. This is one family worthy of the #goals hashtag! Pink has opened up about her support of attachment parenting, which promotes the attachment of parent and infant through close contact, empathy, and responsiveness. So we’re guessing she doesn’t rely on nannies to do the hard work!
14 Katherine Heigl And Son Joshua
How gorgeous is Katherine Heigl's son Joshua?! He was born in December 2016, a few days before Christmas.
Katherine married Josh Kelley in 2007 and later adopted two children with him before giving birth to Josh.
In 2009, they adopted Naleigh from South Korea, as this was where Katherine’s own adoptive sister was born. And in 2012, they adopted a second daughter, Adalaide from the U.S. Cuteness overload! We can’t wait to see what these kids achieve in the future!
13 John Legend And Daughter Luna
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are another of our favorite Hollywood couples. This photo of John holding baby Luna is almost too much! She was born in 2016, after the couple had been married for three years. Earlier this year, Chrissy gave birth to a son, Miles Theodore Legend. The proud parents regularly post snaps of their bubs, bringing fans to their knees, including video footage of Luna shutting down her famous dad as he tries to sing. Bless!
12 Jessica Biel And Son Silas
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are one couple that was built to last, and fans were overjoyed when together they welcomed baby Silas Randall Timberlake into the world in 2015. In 2018, Jessica and Silas accompanied Justin on his European Man of the Woods Tour, with Jessica revealing that she and Silas started to feel quite European themselves! We bet Silas is making quite a few exciting childhood memories on the road with his dad that he’ll cherish forever.
11 Reese Witherspoon And Son Tennessee
This picture of Reese Witherspoon and her second son Tennessee makes our hearts melt—we know just where he inherited those blonde locks from! Reese’s first child, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe was born in September 1999 (and now looks like the spitting image of her famous mama). Deacon Reese Phillippe came along in 2003, before Reese and Ryan Phillippe split up in 2006.
Tennessee James Toth was born in 2012, after Reese married talent agent Jim Toth in 2011.
10 Gwen Stefani And Son Apollo
What a little rock star! Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale is the youngest son of Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, born in February of 2014. He has two older siblings—Kingston James McGregor Rossdale, born in May 2006, and Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale, born in August 2008. Though we don’t know them personally, we’re going to make a guess that these kids were blessed with some serious talent. We can’t wait to see them grow up and take on the world!
9 Ricky Martin And Sons Valentino And Matteo
Okay, someone officially needs to open the window and let some of the cuteness out! Ricky Martin’s sons, Valentino and Matteo, look just like him and are in the same clothes as him, and we’re about to lose it! In January of 2017, Ricky married Syrian-born Swedish artist Jwan Yosef in secret, and the family split their times between homes in Los Angeles, Ricky’s native Puerto Rico and other cities around Europe and the United States.
8 Kim Kardashian And Daughter Chicago
Though Chicago is the third child of power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, she’s definitely making headlines already.
This adorable bub is the younger sister of North West and Saint West and was born via surrogate in 2018.
There’s no doubt that all of the West children, like their famous cousins, have the potential to make some big waves in the future. The world is already obsessed with these kids, and they’re not even at school yet!
7 Hilary Duff With Son Luca
We love it when a celebrity child looks just like their famous mom or dad. That’s the case with Luca Cruz Comrie, who was born in 2012 and closely resembles his talented mom. In June 2018, Hilary announced she’s expecting her second child with current partner Matthew Koma. We can see from photos and videos of Hilary and Luca that she’s an amazing mom, and we’re so excited that a new face will arrive in the family sometime in the near future!
6 Kelly Clarkson And Daughter River Rose
This picture of Kelly Clarkson and River Rose is everything! Kelly started dating River’s father, Brandon Blackstock, in 2012, and the two were married in Tennessee in 2013.
River came along in 2014 and is the older sister of Remington Alexander, who was born in 2016.
Kelly is also a stepmother to Brandon’s two children from a previous marriage, and has written two books with River Rose as the main character. The family reportedly split their time between Hendersonville, Tennessee, and Los Angeles.
5 Kelly Rowland And Son Titan
This love story began in 2011, when Kelly Rowland began dating her manager, Tim Weatherspoon. In 2013, she announced her engagement to Tim, and the two were married in Costa Rica in May of 2014. In November of 2014, Kelly gave birth to Titan Jewell Weatherspoon. It’s clear she loves him to bits, as the former Destiny’s Child star has told The Daily Mail that Titan was the best thing to ever happen to her, and he’s had an impact on her as a woman and as a musician.
4 David Beckham And Daughter Harper
The Beckham clan of kids are nearly as famous as their parents David and Victoria. Though they’re quite grown up now, every once in a while we like to bring on those nostalgic feelings by looking through snaps of when they were just little tots! This one of David and daughter Harper is too cute for words, probably because she looks just like him. Born in 2011, Harper is now seven years old, and is the youngest of the Beckhams.
3 Shakira With Sons Milan And Sasha
Now, these are two kids with talent and the looks to match!
Milan Piqué Mebarak, Shakira’s first son with soccer star Gerard Piqué, was born in Barcelona in 2013.
In January of 2015, the couple’s second son Sasha was born. The family resides in Spain as Gerard is the center back for FC Barcelona, and Shakira often takes the boys to watch their dad play around Europe. She gushed about being a mom on her 2014 album Shakira.
2 Jordin Sparks And Son Dana Isaiah Jr
There’s so much pressure on moms to be perfect right after having a baby, and we love it when a celebrity mom steps out and lets everyone know that it’s okay to not put makeup on and focus on looking after your little one. That’s why this picture of Jordin Sparks and son Dana Isaiah Jr. is one of our favorites! We need more moms promoting the fact that you don’t have to be perfect or dolled up ever, let alone when you’ve got a new baby.
1 Alyssa Milano And Daughter Elizabella
We always knew Alyssa Milano would make a great mom, and to be honest, we kind of knew any kid she had would be the epitome of cuteness. That’s just a given, guys. But we hadn’t anticipated the style coordination between mother and daughter, so we’re still taking some time to get over how gorgeous this is!
Here are Alyssa and Elizabella, little sister to Milo, rocking matching Elsa-inspired braids.
Alyssa shines in every single picture with her babies.
