Being a mother is the gift that keeps on giving. Am I right? Well, I guess it really depends on when a mother is asked this question. It is a tough job being a mother and even tougher when you have to work and be a mommy at the same time.
Honestly, I am still not sure how some mothers do it and still manage to function exceptionally at work. I guess that is what they call, “mommy strength”. Once it is time to handle things, one can count on a mom to do it. What is mommy strength? Well, it is new-found strength a mother never knew she had until after she had a child.
Ever heard of the mom who picked up a car to save her child? Well, that is a perfect example of “mom strength”. With that comes a lot of responsibility and a lot of things to do and celebrities are not left behind on this. With so much running around, lifting and putting down, cleaning up, and repeat, who has time to look in a mirror and say, “What is going on?” Some moms make the time and some, including celebs, really put style in the back burner.
Here are some celeb moms you would never think had as much money as they do simply because they do not have the time to impress others this very moment.
15 Jessica Biel
You may recall or remember Jessica from the hit television show, Seventh Heaven where she played the older sibling. Since then, she has found love with now hubby, Justin Timberlake. Quite honestly, I am not shocked to add her on here. She has always seemed very down to earth, and not that those celebs who take the time to put on make-up are not, so relax, but I know most would agree and see what I mean. She is a natural beauty and has always sported that. Now, as a mom, she is more beautiful than ever, but it is clear that her schedule has taken up a bit of a transformation, allowing her very little time to even be seen out and about with hubby, Justin Timberlake.
14 Britney Spears
Spears has been through a lot in the public eye. She is one of the many celebrities to have a public meltdown or breakdown. Her relationship with her children’s father, Kevin Federline, was extremely public and extremely toxic. Many people blamed that relationship for her breakdown. Still, her and Federline had two children together, two boys. Spears, as most are aware, has been living in Las Vegas performing a live show titled, Piece of Me.
According to bankrate.com, Spears’ net worth is $215 million!
Yes, you read that correctly. Yet you can barely recognize her with the way she steps out of her home sometimes. It is almost as if she has made the decision to have one Britney as stage Britney and the other as relaxed mama Britney.
Another great voice and mommy to a now five-year-old boy is Adele. Now she is definitely almost unrecognizable compared to the glammed-up look on stage. She is definitely almost choosing her wardrobe based on which would allow her to run errands without being harassed by the paparazzi. I get it (well, I do not completely as I am not famous) but even as a very non-famous person, I can relate to down dressing in order to not attract attention.
Especially when living in a very busy city. Her net worth is said to be approximately $185 million, according to Celebritynetworth.com, so it is a bit surprising to see Adele walking about (in sweats and no makeup) like the rest of us. Even without her glam squad, she was clearly still recognized.
12 Mayim Bialik
Bialik is currently famous for her current role as Amy Farrah Fowler in The Big Bang Theory. It really should not be of any surprise that is dear Bialik is on this list. After bravely appearing on the TLC show What Not To Wear more of the world was exposed to Bialik’s 'need' for a fashion makeover.
According to CelebrityNetworth.com, she is worth $25 million!
But you would not get that passing her by on the streets. She definitely does not dress to show off her financial worth and seems to prefer comfort which I am not opposed to but she definitely makes sure of it. Or maybe she is trying to blend in to not be bothered as much by paparazzi.
11 Jennifer Garner
Garner is was first recognized working in the movie Pearl Harbor. She then went on to win a Golden Globe Award, SAG Award and four Primetime Emmy Award nominations for her work as a CIA officer in ABC show Alias. She, unfortunately, is also known for some personal drama. Her former husband, actor Ben Affleck, had an affair with the nanny.
Sure, they were only rumors but only because no one confirmed it as true. And who would want to, really? Well, while they were together, Affleck and Garner really seemed to love and respect each other. I’m not saying they do not now. She also seemed very fashionably comfortable which may happen to the most of us but mainly those whose net worth is not $60 million (celebritynetworth.com) like Garner.
10 Kelly Clarkson
Clarkson is best known for her amazing voice and pretty awesome songs. She is also pretty big on social media and sharing her experience as a mother. She has a boy and a girl as well as two other children from her husband’s previous marriage. She loves sharing her thoughts on raising her children and has been criticized on certain choices she has made regarding that like spanking.
Apart from her children, she has been criticized by the media for her pregnancy pounds. Which, if you follow her on any sort of social media or at all, you will notice she could care less. She also could care less about looking like she is worth $28 million, according to Celebritynetworth.com.
It seems her priorities are set on those she truly loves, her children and on what she may consider her favorite job, being a great mom to them.
9 Jennie Garth
Garth is best known for her role as Kelly Taylor in the television show 90210. This show was televised for a whole decade. The entire nineties. That is how popular it was and goes to show how popular Garth was as well. She then went on to have her own reality show which was not as much of a hit though.
Garth is mommy to three girls, Lola, Luca and Fiona, fifteen, twenty and eleven years old, respectively. Now you can imagine how busy Garth is with three girls, one teenager and one just starting her teenage years. It is a lot, I am sure. Comfort dressing is the way to go. According to celebritynetworth.com, she is worth $5 million. Sure, it is not a lot compared to the others listed but still, millions.
8 Scarlett Johansson
Johansson has been in the acting game for years, starting as a child actor. She is still one of the most well known names in the game. Recently, she has hit it pretty big within Marvel playing the role of Black Widow. She was in Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. Plus, there are many more to come soon.
This also means that more of those big pretty checks should be making their way into her bank account as well. And by pretty big, I just mean BIG! Now, Scarlett Johansson may not look exactly regular to the regular public, but when CelebrityNetWorth.com reports your net worth as being $100 million, a t-shirt and torn jeans look are definitely not portraying all that money, honey.
7 Natalie Portman
Let me start with saying how much Portman is worth. According to wisetoast.com Natalie Portman is worth $54 million! You read right. Fifty-four million dollars! Granted she has had her fair bit of luck in Hollywood ever since her role in Black Swan. A few movies include V for Vendetta, Closer, and Jackie. Then there is the romantic comedy with Ashton Kutcher, No Strings Attached.
Soon after starring in a few movies she decided to take on the biggest role of her life, to be a mom. She has two, a boy and a girl. She has not been seen much in films since their birth, clearly focusing on her role as a mother. She does come off as being down to earth and her wardrobe reflects just that.
6 Denise Richards
Richards is an actress and former model. She is mostly known for her work in the movie Wild Things and being a bond girl in The World is Not Enough. She has also had the opportunity to be in the reality television game with her own E! show, Denise Richards: It’s Complicated. She soon became a hot topic soon as her former husband Charlie Sheen has what some may call a breakdown.
Remember that? Winning! Well, Sheen and Richards were married for four years and had two children. Somehow Richards found a way to co-parent with Sheen. I digress, according to CelebrityNetworth.com, Richards is worth $12 million.
Even with the amount of cash in the bank, Richards shows us she doesn't need to be decked out in designer clothes to go on a quick trip to the grocery store.
5 Alicia Silverstone
Silverstone is best known for her role in the movie Clueless. Some people may also remember her as one of the girls in Aerosmith’s music video for his song “Cryin”. She was only sixteen at the time! She also had the chance to play Batgirl in Batman and Forever (wikipedia.org). But Silverstone’s main role is now that of being the mother of a sweet boy name Bear Blu. Cool name by the way.
Silverstone and her little boy definitely have a special connection. She is often spotted with Bear Blu by her side and it's quite unusual to see her without him. I find that to be pretty sweet. Well, in most of those sweet pictures Silverstone is really showing that she has no shame to her dressed down game.
4 Jessica Simpson
Simpson is known for being famous at this point. She first started as a singer, which I am sure she still can do. She then got married to once a boy band member, Nick Lachey. They had a reality show together where Simpson acquired a few more fans. Her and Lachey have since been divorced and Simpson remarried. We now follow her because, well, look at her! She is what they call a bombshell.
She is also the mom of two beautiful children, daughter Maxwell and son Ace.
Simpson has always been a provocative dresser and certainly has no plans of changing that after becoming a mommy.
Jessica shows us that moms can still be sexy, even if you're dressed in comfortable clothes and pushing a stroller.
3 Angela Bassett
Bassett is a well known actor with a pretty impressive and extensive acting resume. I do not even know where to begin. I will start with her amazing portrayal of Tina Turner in the movie What’s Love Got to Do With It. She was nominated for an Academy Award for best Actress for this role. She did win a Golden Globe for it.
She most recently worked in the box office hit, Black Panther. She is the proud mother of two children, Bronwyn and Slater. And as a proud mother she has taken her children to a few red carpets. One of which she did not particularly care to impress anyone with her fashion sense and went with a look where she could have easily blended in with any busy city mom.
Pink is amazing. Okay, we got that out there. Pink is the proud mother of a girl named Willow Sage Hart and boy Jameson Moon Hart. What cute baby names! She is the super athletic singer with the amazing voice and range. Oh right, and a killer body. Pink has been in the entertainment game for about twenty three years and is still relevant to date. She is a busy mom and there really is no shame in needing to quickly step out in whatever is comfortable and available. Right? Even if your net worth is $150 million as per celebritynetworth.com.
Pink... just keep bringing out those amazing songs and stage performances for all your fans around the world.
1 Kendra Wilkinson
Wilkinson is best known for being one of the PB Playmates that actually lived with, married or whatever it was the playmates were to the late Hugh Hefner. Her popularity rose or she became more recognizable once she starred in the reality show The Girls Next Door. The show lasted five years.
Wilkinson stayed relevant and got the opportunity to do her own reality show, Kendra on Top. It is still airing, since 2012. Here you get to know Wilkinson as a wife and mother. Her former football player husband and she are up to baby number two with one daughter and one son. With Wilkinson’s career where how she looks matters, seeing her dress uber down is rather shocking but it humanizes her.
