Top 10 Coolest Celebrity Moms

These are the inspirational women we want to emulate! Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Coolest Celebrity Moms.

For this list, we’ll be taking a look at the women who not only seamlessly balance work and family life, but also inspire others with their attitude and great work.

#10: Victoria Beckham

The world came to know Victoria Beckham first as Victoria Adams when she was a member of the influential and endlessly fun girl-gang quintet the Spice Girls. But she is hardly a one-trick pony! Posh Spice briefly enjoyed a career as a solo artist before launching into the world of fashion, designing both high-end and lower-priced clothing. As a philanthropist, she has given to a number of causes and earned an award nomination for her work with the Save the Children foundation. Married to football superstar David Beckham and the mother of four, she manages to make all it look easy.

#9: Demi Moore

This seemingly ageless beauty is never far from the headlines. Most famous for her roles in films from the ‘80s and ‘90s, she surprised the world in 2003 when she began dating Ashton Kutcher – fifteen years her junior – helping to break down expectations on age differences in relationships. It wasn’t the first time she pushed the envelope, however. Although her children are now grown, Moore was the topic of much discussion back in 1991 when she appeared nude and heavily pregnant on the cover of Vanity Fair. The Annie Leibovitz portrait sparked a discussion about women’s bodies, and women as sex symbols versus women as people – a conversation still being had today.

#8: Madonna

Queen Madge has been redefining cool for almost 40 years! The entertainer, producer, humanitarian and all-around queen is a non-stop force to be reckoned with, with more energy and drive than many women half her age. Like many celebrities though, she works hard to keep her public and private lives separate. Like other women on this list, she is a proponent of adoption, and four of her six children are adopted from Malawi, with the most recent additions to the family being welcomed in 2017. In 2006, Madonna founded Raising Malawi, a non-profit aimed at helping to alleviate poverty and provide healthcare and education to the orphans of the African nation.

#7: Reese Witherspoon

This actress and entrepreneur has proven time and time again that not only do blondes have fun, but also they are anything but dumb. Breaking out as Elle Woods in the perennial classic “Legally Blonde”, the talented actress went on proving her acting chops and in the process won a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and an Academy Award. In 2000, she founded the production company Type A Films, and in 2016 she started another production company called Hello Sunshine, which focuses on female-centered films (and other media by women about women). Her producing career has spawned such hits as “Gone Girl” and “Big Little Lies.” Her kids have one motivational momma!

#6: Amy Poehler

This talented and hilarious actress and voice actor is the original “cool mom”. An SNL alum who has appeared in numerous films and TV shows, she is perhaps best known for her role as Leslie Knope, the enthusiastic, ambitious, and bubbly Deputy Director of the Parks Department on the NBC hit “Parks and Recreation.” The real-life bestie of Tina Fey has two children, Abel and Archie, and the kids provided voices alongside their father Will Arnett in “The Lego Batman Movie.” In 2014, she published “Yes Please,” a book which is one part memoir, one part inspirational text, and all around hilarious.

#5: Jada Pinkett Smith

This actress has worked her way through many genres. From horror to sci-fi to drama to animated comedy, she is able to take on any role she wants. This ability to switch gears has also been applied to her other ventures. As a business woman, she has opened record companies, fashion labels, and helped to support other African American women in starting businesses of their own, such as in the Carol’s Daughter beauty line. Alongside husband Will Smith, with whom she has 2 children and 1 stepson, she created the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, a charity focused on inner city youth and family support.

#4: Tina Fey

The first female head writer of SNL as well as one of the show’s most beloved stars, this busy writer and actress has had multiple successes since. Her show “30 Rock” was arguably the best comedy on network TV at the time it aired, and her movie “Mean Girls” is unparalleled among modern teen films. Despite typically playing awkward characters, Fey is the embodiment of confidence, and is vocal about getting what you want, working hard, and not settling, inspiring women everywhere to do the same. Along with gal pal Amy Poehler, she proves that women can and should support each other and don’t have to work against each other to get what they want.

#3: Kristen Bell

Breaking out on the incredible “Veronica Mars” as the titular character, Kristen Bell has gone on to voice Anna in the international hit “Frozen” and star as Eleanor Shellstrop in NBC’s “The Good Place.” A vegetarian since age 11, the animal lover is regularly present for fundraisers for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Not only is she concerned with the well-being of furry friends, but of people too as an ardent advocate of vaccination and mental health care. Furthermore, she and her husband, Dax Shepard are total relationship goals – even if there has been an embarrassing mishap or two in their family life with their 2 daughters.

#2: Beyoncé

Not only is Queen Bey basically the regal leader of the music industry, just about everything she touches turns to gold, and she is as cool as they come. As of 2018, her net worth was reportedly $350 million, and phenomenal wealth aside, Beyoncé is also a smart business woman – endorsing and investing with multiple companies, as well as starting several of her own. The mother of 3 is also an activist who has lent her voice in support of LGBTQ+ rights. Success and coolness must run in the Knowles family, as her younger sister and mother of 1 Solange has also been making waves in the music industry recently.

Before we unveil our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

Leslie Mann

Gwen Stefani

Kate Beckinsale

#1: Angelina Jolie

Not only is this actress a talented Academy Award winner whose range spans from heartfelt drama to heroic action, but she is also a committed humanitarian constantly using her star-power for good. She has been a Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and she actively promotes causes for women, education, and the environment – all while being a mom to 6 kids! Despite living most of her life under the microscope of the public eye, like many of the characters she plays this woman is cool and unflappable, but is also not afraid to open up and speak honestly.
