Countdown to Mother's Day: Top 10 Celebrity Moms: #9

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009


In honor of Mother’s Day, join us as we continue our countdown of the Top 10 celebrity moms.

We’ll be highlighting 1 mom daily leading up to the big day, and to our #1 Celebrity Mom herself!

A Top Celebrity Mom

Pamela Anderson
You’d hardly expect Pam Anderson – best known as the biggest babe on Bay Watch – to make a Top 10 list of celebrity moms. Despite her pin-up image, however, Pam is a devoted mom to two sons, Dylan, 11, and Brandon, 10. (Their father is ex-husband and on-again-off-again fling Tommy Lee.) The blond bombshell is also an unusual advocate for natural parenting.

In fact, Pamela was among the first of a growing trend of celebrity moms to birth her babies at home, rather than in a hospital (Charlotte Church, Ricki Lake and Joely Fisher have since followed suit), and she breastfed both of her kids – despite her DD-size implants. Pamela is also a volunteer crossing guard for her children’s school and a part-time room mother. Who’d have thought that the ditzy lifeguard would make such a stellar mom?

Check back each day for another celeb mom (or you can cheat and check out our whole top 10 list here).
