Parenting isn’t easy, especially when you’re in Hollywood. But when you’re a woman raising a son the challenge can be even difficult.

Check out these fabulous stars and their sons. Oh yeah, and they make it look effortless…

Nia Long & Massai

Since he was born, it has only been Nia and Massai. She recently had another baby boy but we know Massai will always be her first love.

Jill Scott & Jett

Jill refers to her adorable son Jett as her “miracle child” because she was told it would likely be impossible for her to have children.  Well, not only is she running behind a two year old but she also recently revealed that he has a love for jazz music.

Jada Pinkett-Smith & Jaden

Like mother, like son! Jaden has followed in the footsteps of his mother (and father, of course) and stepped onto the Hollywood scene.  By the way things are going, Jaden might have a more successful career than his mom but and I’m sure she’ll be behind him all the way.

Taraji P. Henson & Marcel

Taraji loves talking about her son, Marcel. Whenever she tells the story of her rise in Hollywood, she is quick to say that her son is always her first priority and everything she does is for him. But now he’s 17 and will be out of the house soon going to college. What’s that I hear? Party at Taraji’s!

Solange Knowles & Juelz

Little Juelz is one of our more popular sons.  Not only does he have a famous aunt but his mom, Solange, is famous in her own right and Juelz reaps all the benefits. From his eccentric outfits at times to his sharing the spotlight in commercials to trips around the world, this kid is already having the time of his life!

Victoria Beckham & sons

Until recently, Victoria and husband David have had boys to run that house (they had a little girl a few months ago). Do you think they get any sleep?  The boys probably dance (from Vicky’s days as Posh Spice) and play sports all the time. As a personal note, I’m partial to their oldest son Brooklyn because…well…I’m from Brooklyn.

Paula Patton & Julian

We’ve only seen random shots of Paula and Robin Thicke’s son, Julian, but when we do get to see him, Paula is usually seen giving him some “motherly sugar.”  There’s a lot of talent in that family so we’ll check back in about 20 years.

Gwen Stefani & sons

Everyone LOVES Gwen and when we heard the names of her sons, Kingston and Zuma Nesta, we loved her even more when we realized her love of Jamaica and Bob Marley. These kids are living a full rock star life. They travel the world with Mom and they dress like adult rock stars (which includes Kingston having bleached hair and wearing nail polish at times…don’t shoot the messenger).  A cool mom equals cool kids, right?

Garcelle Beauvais & sons

Did you know that not only does Garcelle have the twins, Jax and Jaid, but she also has a 20 year old son named Oliver? So she has experience with a crazy house full of testosterone. Bless her heart because that is no easy feat! And to still look good while raising all boys? You better work it out, Garcelle!

Toni Braxton & sons

Remember how we reacted after both times Toni gave birth and named her sons, Denim and then Diezel? We all kind of side eyed those names but they’re both so cute that you kind of forget their names are so different (Diezel has also been diagnosed with Autism and Toni has become quite the spokesperson).

Lauryn Hill & sons

Four of Lauryn’s six children are boys (Zion, Joshua, John and a newborn we have yet to receive an official name for) and so you know the party never stops in the Hill household.
