The most powerful Hollywood moms

Being a mom is hard work, and being a working mom is even harder. But how about being a world famous mom? We take our hats off to celeb mothers – not only do they hold down demanding jobs, but they have to make time to raise their family as well as fight to keep their brood out of the spotlight. Here, the three most powerful Hollywood moms that we think are doing a pretty good job.

Angeline Jolie

Angelina Jolie
Mother of six, Oscar winning actress and UN ambassador, Angelina Jolie has a busier schedule than most. What we love most about her is the fact that she’s never far from her kids, and is regularly spotted doing “normal” things with them like going to the park or eating ice cream. With three biological and three adopted children, trips to impoverished nations all over the world and blockbuster movies like Maleficent hitting the screens, Angelina’s got to be some sort of Superwoman.


Beyoncé and Jay Z have always been in the spotlight, but even more so after the birth of their first child, Blue Ivy. Regularly seen out and about with her bundle of joy, Beyoncé proves to be as much of a regular mom as she is an international superstar. And this year Forbes named her number 1 on the Celebrity 100 list, naming her the world’s most powerful celeb!

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian
Love her or hate her, you can’t deny Kim’s influence. She’s the most well-known reality star ever, and one of the most followed and searched celebrities in the world. Unlike many of her peers, Kim doesn’t seem too worried about keeping her baby away from the cameras – in fact, she regularly posts pics of her and little North on her social media accounts. She and Kanye seem to be very hands-on parents, and there are even rumours doing the rounds that she’s expecting a second child!

  1. My favourite celeb mom would have to be Miranda Kerr. Healthy, wealthy, beautiful and so natural. But Angeline tops this list.

  2. Hmm I am not sure, but with only these three, I would agree with Angelina as a top mom.

  3. I am a big fan of Beyoncé, but I think Angelina Jolie takes the crown here. I think she is a better mother and she dedicated her time even for those who don’t have family. A women who adopted kids that aren’t hers and she takes good care of them, of course she has a nanny who can manage 6 kids in the house but I can tell she is hands on when it comes to her children, that is transparent from the way I look at it.

  4. I wouldn’t say they are regular moms, I’m sure they have nannies just like any other working mom.

  5. I’m not sure how “hands-on” they really are. Im sure they have well paid nanny’s that do most of the work and they have the benefit of using their free time to just play with the kids

  6. I can understand Angelina Jolie and Beyonce, they are mothers I’d be proud of but Kim.. really? Her past is a little dodgy. I like her sense of style and while I respect her ability to laugh off her behaviour, she doesn’t exactly set the best example for her daughter.
