Celebrity moms can get a lot of flak from the press and the general public. A case in point is Star magazine giving celebrity moms report cards. Among those who haven’t made the best grades for fairly routine reasons: Christina Aguilera (demerits for going out too often), Angelina Jolie (too many career obligations), and Alicia Silverstone (chews her son’s food like a bird—okay, maybe that one is kind of odd?).
On the other hand, if they’re seen in photos with their kids too often, they aren’t doing enough to shield them from the public eye. It seems like they can't win!
Let's give celebrity mothers a break by focusing on some very sweet photos of them with their adorable babies -- looking nothing but happy and loved. At the end of the day, most celeb moms love their kids just like regular moms. Get ready to oooo and ahhhh.
1. Kelly Clarkson
Check out who’s crashing Kelly's nap before her concert? What a sweet way to start the evening, by cuddling her little River Rose.
2. Kim Kardashian
This adorable picture of North sweetly resting on her mom’s shoulder was taken as she was being baptized in Jerusalem. It’s even more precious knowing that her future sibling is snug in mom Kim’s belly while she holds her. All together now... awwww!
3. Holly Madison
How sweet to see Holly Madison bonding with daughter Rainbow on the floor of her adorable nursery! Holly’s new book about life in the Playboy mansion includes some upsetting details about her past. We bet she’s much happier now with her precious little girl in her life!
4. Kourtney Kardashian
Kourtney always looks happiest with her children and this picture is no exception. Newest baby Reign Aston rests comfortably on his mama’s hip while Kourtney beams contentedly. While Kourtney parts ways with Scott Disick, could the kids be a source of calm and happiness? It looks like they bring her peace, even when everything else is going wrong.
5. Duchess Kate
We can’t talk about aww-inducing celebrity moms and babies without including Duchess Kate and her beautiful new daughter, Princess Charlotte. Look at how Kate beams down at her baby girl – that is love right there and Charlotte is the luckiest little princess there is to have such an adoring mother.
6. Olivia Wilde
Olivia personifies the happy mom in this sweet snap with son Otis. She isn’t photographed with him often and guards his privacy, but she is clearly thrilled to show off their adorable mommy-son relationship once in a while. We are so glad when she does!
7. Drew Barrymore
Drew is known for having a huge and kind heart so it’s no surprise that she appears to be a loving and snuggly mom to her two beautiful daughters. Here she is embracing her youngest, Frankie, cuddling alongside some beautiful flowers. Her love for her little one shines through. These little girls are so fortunate to have her as their mom!
8. Jessica Simpson
This shot of Jessica’s entire family is nothing short of perfect. She posts pictures of her kids on Instagram frequently and her love for them is obvious to anyone with eyes. Look at how happy those kiddos look! We are getting a toothache from all the sweetness.
