While there would certainly be some negative aspects to having a celebrity as a parent (paparazzi following you everywhere, including on trips to Target, for example) there are some incredible perks too.

Besides what we imagine would be a hefty allowance, these celebrity moms seem like they’d genuinely be great parents.

Jessica Simpson

Jess is mom to daughter Maxwell and son Ace, and we picture her as the one who’s always down to take you to the amusement park, the movies, or to play mini golf. Plus, can you imagine the closet Maxwell will have access to when she’s older? We’re JEALOUS.

Jessica Alba

She’s about to be a mom of three, and we imagine Jessica would be the perfect mom when it comes to empowering her kids and encouraging them to chase their dreams. As an entrepreneur, she’s got confidence and business acumen, and that’s something important to learn from a parent.

Demi Moore

In terms of genetics, Demi Moore’s kids have won the lottery. Seriously, the woman does not age. If you’re her offspring, you know you’re going to look good until the end of time, no eye creams or serums needed.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese seems like she’d be one of those moms who accepts you fully, but doesn’t take any nonsense. She’ll help you deal with friend drama or relationship issues, but if we’re talking about bad grades in school? Now that’s non-negotiable. Start studying.

Lauren Conrad

The new mom would throw the best parties. Graduations, Sweet 16s, all of your friends would be so jealous.


To quote the all-time classic Mean Girls, these ladies “aren’t regular moms, they’re cool moms” and their kiddos are certainly lucky to have them.
