Thanks to services like Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, it's easier than ever for excited moms to document every second of their child's day via social media. Still, not every parent wants to share their entire life on Instagram, especially when you're a celebrity and have even more reason to guard your private life. You may not see them posting mommy and me selfies on Instagram every hour, but these 7 celebs are great mothers. And don't miss the premiere of Fix My Mom, premiering Tuesday 9/8c on Oxygen!
Ciara shares a son, Future Zahir Wilson, with rapper Future, but she limits the photos she shares of him on Insta to a rare few. And when her ex was mouthing off in the media about their son's exposure to her boyfriend Russell Wilson, Ciara still kept it classy and put her son first, saying "People are going to talk about me. I was built for this, this is what I’m supposed to be doing. But when it comes to your child, it's something I don't take lightly."
Solange gave birth to her son Daniel Julez Smith, Jr when she was 17. It's clear that Daniel is her world, but she tends to keep a lot of her personal life off of social media (which is typical of the Knowles family). She clearly knows how to have fun though. Remember that adorable "No Flex Zone" dance from her wedding?
3. Jennifer Hudson
Admit it - you didn't even know JHud had a child. Well, in 2009, she gave birth to a son with her then-partner, David Otunga, but she keeps her baby boy, David Daniel Otunga Jr., out of the spotlight. Still, she isn't afraid to go all out for his birthday parties.
Adele took a break from music to focus on her son, Angelo. You won't see many photos of she and partner Simon Konecki's little boy on social media, though. She only just got an Instagram account like yesterday (literally).
Beyonce may seem like a strange addition to this list, but hear me out. Blue Ivy was like a mystery for how long? It may seem like Blue's photos make headlines every other week, but it's precisely because Bey is so careful about her baby girl that anything she does share goes viral.
6. Kerry Washington
Did you even know Kerry Washington has a 1-year-old daughter named Isabelle? Kerry is notorious for being extremely private when it comes to her private life (she got married in secret, after all), but she wants the same thing for her daughter that any mother wants: "I just want [Isabelle] to know that she's heard. Really heard, because I feel like that is what we all really want," she told People back in March.
7. Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner recently split from husband Ben Affleck, with whom she has three children. Despite what must be an extremely stressful situation, Jennifer balances it all with grace, even meeting with Ben to do things together for the kids, like taking them to school. Whatever their situation, Jennifer keeps it private, and isn't one to over-share on social media: she doesn't even have a Twitter or Instagram account.
