Hollywood's Hottest Single Moms — They've Got A Hard Job!

They may live glamorous lives, but when it comes to motherhood, these single celebrity moms have no choice but to get down and dirty!

Being a single mother is hard. But is being a single celebrity mother in Hollywood harder or easier than it is for other single moms? It’s difficult to maintain a stable family life when you’re constantly in the limelight, whether it’s filming, traveling, partying and attending events. But they also have lots more money to hire help! 

Check out these supermodel moms out with their kiddos!

One of the single moms that stands out in the pack is Oscar-nominee, Michelle Williams. The 30-year-old Blue Valentine star fell in love with the late Heath Ledger while the pair were filming the movie, Brokeback Mountain. They eventually became inseperable, which in turn led to the birth of their baby girl Matilda, who was born on October 28, 2005. Although the couple parted ways a few short months before Heath passed away in January 2008, the grief and loneliness Michelle had to face was at times unbearable. The pair may have ended their romance, but neither of them ever stopped being a parent to Matilda. “I was so moved by this new kind of community of people,” Michelle says. “When I became a single mother, there was a smaller but equally powerful community that rose up.”

Another mom going at it herself is singer Sheryl Crow, who is not only a single mommy, but a mom to two adopted boys, Wyatt, 3, and Levi, 9 months. Sheryl credits her break-up with long-time love Lance Armstrong for motivating her to become a parent. “I’d just been through a pretty painful break-up where there were kids involved, and I’d also been through breast cancer treatment,” Sheryl, 48, explains. “After that, I felt an acute sense of urgency about how I wanted my life to feel. Since I wasn’t married, my idea of what the picture was supposed to look like no longer served any great purpose.”

Geri Halliwell is a single mom too!

And of course there are single moms like Kate Gosselin who don’t have one or two kids to care for, but eight — all on her own! Although her ex Jon Gosselin is still in the picture on weekends, Kate, 35, has to handle all the crying, complaining, laughing, playing and tantruming kids throughout the week. Take one child’s needs and times that by eight, whoa that’s rough.

We give props to these 12 single moms who work their butts off to give their kids a normal and happy life.

Oh Please! You need to eliminate Britney and Kate first of all due to the train wrecks that they are. Do not even try to portray these women as motherly…they leave that job to the nannies. It is easy to see from the photos which mothers are actually involved in their children’s lives and those that are real “mothers” in the derogatory sense of the word. Using children as media or meal tickets, or worse yet accessories is pathetic. And also note that some of these women are not “single” moms in the sense of sole parenting (some of the fathers are actually present and active in their lives). So sick of that term “single mom”. That is reserved for those women who are left having to raise their children on their own without any financial or emotional help from the fathers. It is usually women who will put their children first, themselves second, and a personal life last. A few of the women featured do fit in that category, but only a few.

Madonna, amazingly enough turned out to be a good mother. She allowed her daughter to have childhood, and Lourdes seems to be respectful of her mother’s authority and parenting style. I don’t think Madonna ever set out to have children to be looked upon like a MILF, for press or popularity; she seemed to have chosen motherhood for the right reasons. All the candidates are hands on seemingly loving moms with the exception of Kate and Britney.

You just had to spew your stupid ass hate on Kate Gosselin, a single mom of 8 children under the age of 10.

Kate Gosselin is not Hollywood, but she is a hard working celebrity SINGLE mom of 8 (single digit) children that rely on Kate for their home, food, clothing, security, well-being and everything else.

Kate does all of the above-mentioned by herself! Jon doesn’t pay child support and when the kids visit him twice a month it is fun time.

The moms in the article have one child, not eight! Give credit where credit is due.
