When it comes down to it, celebrity moms are just like any other mother: they love their kids, they balance a lot of different jobs, and they just want their offspring to call more often.
As Mother’s Day nears, we took a look at famous matriarchs that have inspired us over the years.
In celebration of this special holiday, we bring you 18 famous moms that we love.

Serena Williams is expecting her first child with fiancé Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit.
So she’s only a few months along, but wow, the tennis champ (who is outspoken about body positivity), won the 7th Australian Open — while pregnant.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcomed their first daughter, Luna Simone, just last year.
We love Teigen for her no-holds-barred social media activity — especially when she deals with trolls on Twitter — but she also doesn’t hold back when it comes to posting photos of daughter Luna. On the weekend of Luna’s first birthday, the model and cookbook author shared a series of sweet photos from a special family photo shoot, as well as of the birthday cake that she and husband John Legend designed themselves.
British songbird Adele had her first child with husband Simon Konecki in 2012, and is currently expecting baby number two.
The singer has always been brazenly outspoken, which is why we love her. On a recent trip to Disney, she was bashed for letting her son dress as Anna from “Frozen,” but didn’t give in to the haters. We love how she let him wear whatever he wanted.
