Beyond the lights and the cameras – celebrities follow normal routines like everyday folks. That statement rings even more true if they are parents. Just like us – they have to nurture their offspring and pray that their children live healthy and relatively normal lives. We agree, having the opportunity to be a mom is nothing short of amazing, so get ready to blush and gush as our favorite celebrity moms; Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington, Solange and more – share what motherhood truly means to them.


“I am very protective. I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life…in the back of my mind, she’s my priority. And life is completely different now.  I feel really, really just lucky that I can still do what I love, and now have a way bigger meaning.  And that’s to be her mother.” – Beyonce


“It’s just made my life better in every way” — Kerry Washington


“Enjoy your time with your family, with your child. The thing is, after six months, they’re not a baby anymore. You’ll never get them back to that little baby stage again! You should just really enjoy it and not rush it.” – Alicia Keys


“[It] is definitely a balancing act. And it is not at all easy. I do the best I can, which involves a lot of saying no to things, actually, and a lot of really organized scheduling and a lot of help, to be honest.” — Solange

“It comes with challenges, but at the same time I love being a mother. It’s the best part of my life. It enriches my life so much.

“It’s a lot more emotional than I expected. I knew it would be emotional, but I didn’t know it would be this emotional,” she says. “People always say you never know love until you have your own child and all of that is true.” Tia Mowry-Hardrict


Like every mom, you try to juggle, but I also want people to know that you don’t have to be a superhero. I’m not a superhero; I have a team of people who help me. I have a great family support system. – Kimora Lee Simmons
