5 Celebrity Moms That Deserve A Pat on the Back

It’s no secret that raising a child in the spotlight of Hollywood - especially as a celebrity parent - can be a pretty intense role for anyone to take on. The challenges that come along with raising Hollywood kids are evident by the number of them that fall into addiction, partying, and bad behavior. 

For some celebs, moving their families away from the bright lights is totally worth commuting back for work. And with how much effort these moms put into raising their little ones, we think they deserve a major pat on the back.

5 Celebrity Moms That Deserve A Pat on the Back Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock

Although her young son will only be five in January, Bullock certainly makes our list of deserving moms. Just as she adopted young Louis in 2010, her marriage to famous biker Jesse James came to a screeching halt when the story of his affair with a porn star rose to the surface of their relationship. 

Instead of battling about the ordeal in the press, Bullock retreated into her Texas home to focus on baby Louis and growing her career. She’s continued to make the littlest man in her life her number one priority - and we know that he’s going to be one of the great kids to be raised by a Hollywood star. Oh, and those tabloids that were chasing her around five years ago? She’s barely made one since then.

5 Celebrity Moms That Deserve A Pat on the Back Julia Roberts and Kids

Julia Roberts

With three kids under 10, Roberts and her husband, Danny Moder, are keeping up with their kids on a ranch in New Mexico. Raising her children in a non-Hollywood environment is what this mama attributes much of her parenting success to. 

Without the crazy hoopla that exists for kids living in Hollywood, they’ve learned not to focus on the negative things and look at life from a bigger perspective. Staying away from the spotlight of Los Angeles is certainly helping these kiddos to stay grounded and experience the fun of a more normal childhood!

Vera Farmiga

This celebrity mom doesn’t just live outside of the city - she lives on a farm with her husband and son in Upstate New York. They raise goats and don’t have a nanny, something Farmiga relishes in her time at home. “I like being off the grid. I want to be self-sufficient and live off the land.” 

Farm life is certainly becoming a much more chic way to parent - and can definitely help keep things in perspective when your day job requires you to be a famous actress. We cheer Vera for staying centered and giving her all to both of her jobs - actress AND mom.

5 Celebrity Moms That Deserve A Pat on the Back Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek

Hayek’s daughter, Valentina, may have been born in LA in 2007, but she has experienced much of her life outside the gates of Hollywood. Hayek and her husband (who happens to be the third richest man in France) recently moved their family to London from France to have access to better schools for little Valentina. 

Uprooting your life to move thousands of miles away so that your child can get the best access to education? That’s definitely a Hollywood supermom move

Hayek credits her best parenting advice to her aunt, who told her to put Valentina to sleep herself every night. To sing and cuddle her little girl as much as she could, because one day she’ll be too old for that - and it will happen really fast. And we think that’s some advice all mamas can appreciate.

5 Celebrity Moms That Deserve A Pat on the Back Tina Fey

Tina Fey

One of our favorite lady comedians really wraps up the whole “being a great mom” theory in one quote: “I think every working mom probably feels the same thing: You go through big chunks of time where you’re just thinking, ‘this is impossible - oh, this is impossible.’ And then you just keep going and going, and you sort of do the impossible.” 

It’s that very attitude that every amazing mom has - to keep loving their babies and giving it their all until it’s just kind of second nature. We really love Tina Fey for that quote - and living her mommy life as a Hollywood supermom. We are definitely giving her a pat on the back for this.
