Good looks can run in the family and with these celebrities it’s clear that their mamas are the ones who blessed the gene pool.

Adrienne Banfield-Jones (Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Mom)

At 43 years old, there’s no denying how great Jada Pinkett-Smith looks. And if you want to know how she’ll look in 18 years all you have to do it turn to her mother. The family spent the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in Jamaica and Pinkett-Smith shared a photo of mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones rocking a two piece bathing suit. The 61-year-old grandmother puts a lot of women half her age to shame.

Eleanor McCoy (Sanaa Lathan’s Mom)

We expected Sanaa Lathan’s mom to be a beauty because, well, look at Sanaa, but we had no clue Elanor McCoy was living proof that “66 never looked better.” The wife of director Stan Lathan has the most flawless skin we’ve ever seen and those gray locks only accentuate her beautiful tone.


April Tucker (Trey Songz’ Mom)

Trey Songz may have had a lot of women come and go in his life but his mother has been a constant. April Tucker gave birth to the “Na Na” singer when she was just 17 years old. She accompanied her son to the 2010 BET Awards as his date and she grabbed more attention than Trigger Trey, even though he walked away with the award for Best New Artist.

Renee Scott (Skylar Diggins’ Mom)

Skylar Diggins made her presence felt while playing for Notre Dame. The college basketball star became their all-time leading scorer and became the third overall pick in the WNBA draft. Diggins may have her mother Renee Scott beat in height but the two are neck and neck when it comes to beauty.

Tina Knowles (Beyonce’s Mom)

Beyonce has been one of the hottest stars around for quite some time and it’s not just because of her music. The “Bootylicious” singer has embraced her curves and it’s obvious she gets it from her mama. Tina Knowles has been by her very famous daughter’s side throughout her entire career sometimes looking more like her older sister or young aunt than her mother.

Valerie Campbell (Naomi Campbell’s Mom)

Dancing is a great way to stay in shape. No one knows that like Naomi Campbell’s mother Valerie. The supermodel’s mama was a professional dancer and during her early childhood, the duo lived in Rome where her mother found work. The long-legged supermodel took after Valerie in more ways than one. In addition to having her looks, Campbell took ballet lessons and tap danced in Culture Club’s I’ll Tumble 4 Ya” video.

Veronica Porche (Laila Ali’s Mom)

Muhammad Ali will be written in the history books as one of the greatest boxers to ever step in the ring. Out of his nine children, daughter Laila Ali followed in her father’s footsteps. When she finally hung up her boxing gloves, Ali was 24-0. She may take after her father when it comes to fighting but Ali takes after her mother Veronce Porche in the looks department.

Kris Jenner (Kim, Khloe And Kourtney Kardashian)

A lot of people may take Kris Jenner to task over how she has trotted her daughters, particularly Kim Kardashian, out for material gain. But no one can deny how good the 59-year-old grandmother of three looks. She may not have Kim and Khloe’s surgically enhanced booty but it’s obvious that they got their good looks from their mother.

Diana Ross (Tracee Ellis Ross’ Mom)

Diana Ross is one of the original divas and she rose to fame as one of the Supremes before going solo. Throughout her long career, the “I’m Coming Out” singer has always made heads turn. Even at the age of 70, the mother of five and grandmother of two’s beauty hasn’t faded one bit.

Goldie Hawn (Kate Hudson’s Mom)

Kate Hudson followed her mother into the family business and became an actress. But that’s not the only thing she has in common with her very famous mother. Hudson takes after Hawn in the looks department. Both mother and daughter make heads turn when they step out.

Denise Marie Miller (The Jonas Brothers’ Mom)

The Jonas Brothers first got their start on the Disney channel. Mom Denise Miller was instrumental in finding a show business manager for son Nick, who was discovered at the age of six at the barbershop while his mother was getting her hair cut. Eventually the three brothers would go on to sign a record deal together but every time their mother hits the red carpet with them, she ends up stealing the show.

Gerda Jacoba Aletta Maritz (Charlize Theron’s Mom)

Charlize Theron was born and raised in South Africa. Her mother Gerda Jacoba Aletta Maritz has been her biggest cheerleader and it’s obvious how close mother and daughter are. When the blonde bombshell was just 15 years old her alcoholic father attacked Maritz and threatened them both. Her mother shot and killed Danie Theron. No doubt the Oscar-winning actress gets her killer good looks from her mother.

Pattie Mallette (Justin Bieber’s Mom)

Justin Bieber has been the biggest import from north of the border since Canadian ham and rapper Drake. The young heartthrob was born to 17-year-old mother Pattie Mallette and she worked several low-income jobs to support herself and her young son. But when Biber made it big, Mallette didn’t have to worry about juggling several jobs anymore and focused on managing her young son’s career. She has accompanied her son to numerous award shows and somehow manages to steal the spotlight from him on several occasions.

Ivana Trump (Ivanka Trump’s Mom)

Donald trump sure knows how to pick them. He has always kept a beautiful woman on his arm and his first wife Ivana Trump was no exception. Her good looks were passed down to daughter Ivanka Trump. Before she went into her father’s business, Ivana made a living as a model for Versace, Tommy Hilfiger and Sassoon.
