Let's make one thing clear, there is nothing wrong with being a single mother or raising children as a single parent. Absolutely nothing! We totally support all of the single mamas and papas out there who are getting the job done and are working double duty at home. We are also not actively rooting against any of these celebrities' marriages or relationships. We are not saying we want any of these celeb moms to break up with their partners, but that is the way things are looking for these 15 celebs mamas.
Unfortunately, bad things do happen. Sometimes relationships don't work out and people go their separate ways - kids or no kids. This seems to happen even more often in Hollywood. A Hollywood marriage with children, lasting more than ten years, is incredibly rare. And, with the strain that parenthood can put on top of already tough relationships, it is easy to see how some of these celeb pairings may be uncoupled very soon.
But don't worry, celeb moms! You are all powerful, strong and totally capable of raising your kids, without a man. You got this! We believe in you.
15 Kylie Jenner - Raising Her Surprise Baby Solo
For the longest time, the interwebs were all abuzz with whether or not Kylie Jenner was actually pregnant. The media would do anything to get a photo of the makeup mogul, who pretty much hibernated and shut off all personal social media for her entire pregnancy. On Superbowl Sunday, Kylie finally announced that yes, she had been pregnant and that she had given birth to a daughter named Stormi. The internet freaked out! Now that all of the news has been released, we're just waiting for a proper photo of the baby. Kylie and Travis Scott, her baby daddy, haven't been together very long. This pregnancy happened in the early months of their relationship. They're both extremely young and have the hard task of co-parenting with someone they don't know that well, under the scrutiny of the media. Plus, dealing with an unplanned baby and the fact that they're living apart? Doesn't sound like a lasting relationship.
14 Sarah Jessica Parker Is Already Taking Time Apart
At first glance, Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband, Matthew Broderick, seem solid. After all, they have three children (twins, Tabitha and Marion, and a son, James) and they have been married for 20 years. But is everything still rosy in the Parker-Broderick household? Maybe not. SJP was on a radio show recently and revealed that she and her husband actually spend a lot of time apart. She said, "I know this sounds nuts, but we have lives that allow us to be away and come back together. His work life takes him here, and mine takes me there. In some ways, I think that that's been enormously beneficial because we have so much to share in a way... anytime that any relationship is hard, it's the point at which you're deciding, is this worth the investment getting through whatever that thing is?"
13 Jennifer Lopez - Forever A Single Mom
Jennifer Lopez is the mom to twins Max and Emme from her previous relationship with singer, Marc Antony. But these days, she's dating baseball legend, Aaron Rodriguez. Everyone thinks these two are perfect for one another. They share a lot of the same interests and energy. But just because they go well as a couple, does that mean they'll fit as a family? The two have been dating for about a year and have already forced themselves into a lot of family bonding activities. They spent Christmas together and regularly share snaps of their family outings with JLo's twins and Aaron's daughters, Natasha and Ella. Blending a family with four children is no easy task. It's especially difficult when you're under the lens of Hollywood. Most single parents take things slow. But, both JLo and Aaron have been known to rush into relationships and they both have extensive dating histories to prove it. With that much baggage and bad luck in love, there's a good chance this one will fizzle as well.
12 Jessica Biel.... Because JT Can't Commit
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake may seem like a power couple on the surface. They've been together for a while, they're both successful, and they have a sweet son named Silas. However, it might not all be sunshine and rainbows. Back in the day, it took a while for JT and JB to commit. There was a time he was dating Cameron Diaz and then quickly switched to Jessica. And then, after four years of dating, Jessica and Justin broke up amidst cheating rumors in 2011. But, only a few months later, they were back together and Justin was proposing by the end of the year. Sounds like JT rushed into a proposal and starting a family because he was scared of losing Jessica for good. But now the tables have turned. JT wants more kids and Jessica wants to slow down. These two may be headed for splitsville as they want different things.
11 Megan Fox's Rocky Marriage
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are married and parents to Noah, Bodhi, and Journey. Seems perfect, right? Well, not exactly. The two got together in 2004, when Megan was 18 and Brian was 30. They were together for five years, got engaged, and then broke up in 2009. But then, in 2010, they were engaged again and secretly wed. Things seemed happy for the newlyweds! In 2012, they welcomed their first son, Noah, and their second son, Bodhi, in 2014. Sadly, in June of 2015, Megan filed for divorce. The two were splitting up again. Except, the divorce didn't stick. They never actually got divorced and Megan turned up pregnant, on a red carpet, in April 2016. They welcomed their third son, Journey, in August 2016. So it's not too much of a stretch to think Megan and Brian could split up again.
10 Behati Prinsloo - All Alone Without Adam Levine?
Behati Prinsloo is married to Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine, and is the mom of their little girl, Dusty Rose. But things haven't always been so rosy for Behati and Adam. The two actually started dating in 2012, shortly after Adam broke up with model Anne Vyalitsyna, a good friend of Behati's. So Behati totally went against girl code when she began dating Adam. Adam also has a reputation for dating and dumping models, so watch out Behati! In fact, Adam and Behati actually broke up only a few months into their relationship. And while they were apart, Adam dated Nina Agdal, yet another model! But the two got back together in June of 2013 and were engaged by July. So clearly, they rushed into that engagement. These days they appear to be one big happy family but Adam's shady past and their quick engagement could spell trouble down the line.
9 Sam Taylor Johnson Might Get Left Out At Sea
Sam Taylor Johnson is 23 years older than her partner, Aaron Taylor Johnson (Quicksilver in the Avengers movie). Sam is a movie director and the two met on the set of her movie Nowhere Boy, in which Aaron was starring. At the time, Aaron was 18 years old and Sam was 42. The duo announced their engagement at the film's premiere and, quite obviously, the public was shocked. It's easy to imagine that Aaron may eventually want to be with someone his own age. In fact, Sam's first child, daughter Angelica from her first marriage, is only seven years younger than Aaron. Meaning Aaron would have been an 18-year-old stepdad to an 11-year-old. Sam and Aaron married in 2012 and have two children together, Wylda and Romy. If Aaron does decide to leave, Sam will be a single mom to four.
8 Kendra Wilkinson's Public Love Triangle
Kendra Wilkinson is the mama to Hank Baskett IV and Alijah. She's married to Hank Baskett, an NFL player. The two wed back in 2009 when Kendra was best known as one of the most popular Playboy bunnies, and a resident of the Playboy Mansion. Kendra revealed that she suffered from serious postpartum depression after the birth of her son. She and Hank had just moved to a new city and she felt alone; the two even slept in separate bedrooms! And then in 2013, Hank was let go by the NFL and fell into his own bout of depression with drugs and alcohol. That's when the cheating rumors surfaced. After the birth of their daughter in 2014, more cheating rumors erupted. Kendra claims that he was unfaithful. The two have been near divorce many times and have admitted to having problems, still to this day. Hopefully, that doesn't leave Kendra as a single mom to two.
7 Vanessa Bryant - Can You Really Forget What Happened?
Vanessa Bryant is wife to NBA legend (and now, Oscar winner) Kobe Bryant. She mainly stays out of the headlines but can be seen cheering Kobe on from the sidelines. However, that wasn't the case back in 2003. Fifteen years ago, Kobe admitted to the public that he had cheated on his beautiful wife. Humiliated and devastated, Vanessa wanted a divorce. But, the two were able to sort things out and make it work. Rumor has it, the $4 million ring Kobe gave her had something to do with it. They had a recommitment ceremony and have been together ever since. But is everything really happy at home? Now that Kobe is done playing basketball, he might get bored just being a house husband. Once a cheater, always a cheater!
6 Can Amal Tame Hollywood's Biggest Bachelor?
So far, everything seems to be going well between George Clooney and his wife, Amal. But the world was shocked when he and Amal became a duo. George was more about dating casually, and mostly models or Hollywood A-listers. Amal was different. She was a smart and successful lawyer. And not only did George date her, he proposed and married her. And now, he's a husband and father to twins. That's a far cry from his days as Hollywood's biggest bachelor. Is it all too much for George? After all, he is in his 50s now. Maybe he's too old to be running after toddlers and still making time for his wife. Plus, his best bud, Brad Pitt, is a newly single man. George might get lured back into bachelorhood if Brad needs a wingman.
5 Pink Has Been Through Too Many Break Ups
Pink is married to motocross racer, Carey Hart. They have two kids together, Willow and Jameson. So where's the bad? Well, things have been rocky for Pink and Carey in the past. The two met in 2001 and dated on and off for a few years. In 2005, Pink proposed during one of Carey's races and they married in Costa Rica in 2006. Sadly, the couple separated in 2008. But during their separation, Pink held out hope and Carey even appeared in her music video. The two did reconcile and Pink gave birth to their daughter in 2011. Pink revealed that she made an album of their memories for Carey during the separation, and that helped them get back together. She also revealed that they had split twice before Willow's birth. So as much as I want these two to last, their history isn't looking too good.
4 Tori Spelling May Be Left To Raise Her Big Brood Alone
Tori Spelling is a mom to five children - Stella, Hattie, Beau, Liam, and Finn. Now that is a full household! She has had all of these kids with her husband, Dean McDermott. Things didn't start out great for Tori and Dean. They met on set, in 2005, when they were both married to other people. They quickly ended their respective marriages and wed in 2006. Over the years, the couple has dealt with a ton of issues and cheating rumors. In 2016, Tori confirmed that Dean had cheated, but she decided to stay with him anyway. Be careful Tori, cheetahs can't change their spots. And with five kids at home, that might be enough to make Dean run again. The couple is also dealing with money trouble, owing money in taxes, spousal support, and lawsuits. Cops have been called to their home for their epic arguments and they apparently sleep in separate rooms.
3 Gabrielle Union Could Become A Single Step-Mom
Gabrielle Union is married to NBA star Dwayne Wade. They're picture perfect together and their marriage seems solid. Anytime we see a photo of Gabrielle and her boys, we swoon. So, why could she end up as a single stepmom? Because Dwayne has been unfaithful in the past. Gabrielle and Dwayne began dating in 2009. However, they took a brief break in 2013. And what does Dwayne do? He goes and gets another girl pregnant! Technically, they were on a break, but still. Lucky for him, Gabrielle was open to reconciliation. The two got back together and got engaged a month after Dwayne's son (his third) was born. They married in 2014, and Gabrielle became stepmom to Dwayne's three sons. Things seem to be going well but that little cheating scandal, back in 2013, could come back to haunt the couple.
2 Eniko Parrish Is Scared Kevin Hart Might Stray Again
Many people were shaking their heads when they learned that Kevin Hart cheated on Eniko Parrish, while she was pregnant with his child. How low is that? Kevin admitted to cheating in 2017. He told a local radio station all about the time he cheated on his pregnant wife, while he was away in Las Vegas. Kevin said, "I’m hoping that she has a heart to where she can forgive me and understand that this is not going to be a reoccurring thing and allow me to recover from my f—king massive mistake." Well, looks like Eniko is the biggest hearted person on the planet. She did take Kevin back and even lived through the humiliation of his cheating becoming public. But once a cheater, always a cheater. If he was willing to cheat on her while she carried his child, who knows what else he could do?
1 Nikki Reed Rushed Into The Relationship And May Rush Into Divorce
On the surface, Nikki Reed and Ian Somerholder seem like they are in the perfect marriage, with a perfect little baby. They made a big thing out of taking time away from the media, and even their own friends and family, to bond with their child, Bodhi, as a family unit. But looking at their history, this couple might be in trouble. Nikki and Ian got engaged after dating for only seven months. And they were married only two months after their engagement. So they hadn't even spent a year together when they tied the knot. Everything was rushed and frantic. Now that life has settled down and the realities of parenthood, marriage and Hollywood auditions are here. Nikki and Ian might not be as strong as they seem. Nikki pulled a similar stint in her first marriage to American Idol contestant, Paul McDonald. The two met in March 2011, moved in together quickly, got engaged in June 2011 and married in October 2011. From meeting to marriage in seven months! Huge red flag!
