Trying to make friends as an adult is enormously harder than when we're kids. But trying to make mom friends? Well, that's even more nerve-wracking. Whether it's the fear that you're going to be judged, or you just aren't sure how to approach a fellow mom without looking like a creep, it's tough trying to create a friendship out of thin air with a stranger. But those friendships are super important, especially in the throes of motherhood. So to get by, I like to curate a list of celebrity moms that'd make the best friends and support system.
Sure, those celebs are technically total strangers. But the beauty of celebrity moms is that you've got plenty of conversational ice-breakers. You can ask Kristen Bell about her sloth obsession, check in with Olivia Wilde on the state of her mom hair, or ask Blake Lively if she gets flack at the pediatrician's office for naming her daughter James. But the really wonderful thing about this generation of celebrity moms is that, for the most part, they're all honest. They are open about how they can't find time to shower, how exhausted they are, and how they too are battling postpartum depression. Using their celebrity voice to bring all of us women closer together and feel more empowered as moms? I can totally get behind that. And those are the women I want on my mom squad. They are the ones I want to call when my kid's been coughing for two days and I don't know what to do. They're the ones I want to invite over for a play date so we can ignore our children together and chug coffee. And they are the ones I want to hug when they show up to babysit my kid while I nurse a hangover. Celebrities get a lot of heat for a lot of things, but these 11 celebrity moms? #momsquadgoals
