Countdown to Mother's Day: Top 10 Celebrity Moms: #2

Thursday, May 7th, 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

Julia Roberts
From Pretty Woman to mother to three, Julia Roberts can do it all. After her 2002 nuptials, Julia and cameraman Danny Moder settled down to grow their family . The couple lives full-time on their New Mexico ranch, which lends to their reputation as down-to-earth, “real” people. In fact, even though Julia has a nanny to help out with her kids, she is by all accounts, an incredibly hands-on mom to Phinneas and Hazel, age 4.5, and Henry, age 2.5.

The Earth Mother-type, Julia has also become an advocate for green living. She even used eco-friendly Seventh Generation disposable diapers with her twins and got turned on to the flushable g-diapers with Henry.

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