There's nothing like the comforting feeling of having a best friend. It's so important to have someone to talk to about the ups and downs of life and to laugh with over cocktails or French fries (or both). And when you become a mom, your friends become even more crucial as you look to others for support, guidance, and connection.
Celebrities are just like the rest of us in many ways, but especially when it comes to seeking out others who are experiencing the same things. There are many famous mothers who are the best of friends, who are always there for each other and who really get each other. Here are the 10 best celebrity mom duos.
10 Amber Tamblyn And Blake Lively
After starring in The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants, Amber Tamblyn and Blake Lively have stayed very close with their other co-stars, Alexis Bledel and America Ferrara. They are all moms now and all support one another.
According to Us Weekly, their children have playdates, which is so cute. When Amber shared that she was expecting her first child, Blake posted a photo of them on Instagram and wrote, "So proud of my dear friend, and new mama to be." It's really sweet to see. Amber is mama to her daughter, Marlow Alice, and Blake has three kids: four-year-old James, three-year-old Inez, and a third baby whose name has not yet been announced publicly.
9 Liv Tyler And Kate Hudson
Liv Tyler and Kate Hudson are two other mom duos who are total goals. Liv is mom to 14-year-old Milo, three-year-old Lula, and four-year-old Sailor. Kate has a 15-year-old son named Ryder, an eight-year-old son named Bingham, and a one-year-old daughter named Rani Rose.
Seventeen reported that Liv Tyler and Kate Hudson are not only good pals but they share a high school in common: Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences in Los Angeles. Their families have bonded as well and have spent a lot of time together.
8 Penelope Cruz And Salma Hayek
We also love seeing Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek together because they always look like they're true friends. Penelope has a six-year-old daughter, Luna, and an eight-year-old son named Leo, while Salma is mom to her pre-teen daughter, Valentina. The actresses were both in Bandidas, which was released in 2006, but people say their friendship dates back to 2001.
They each other "huevos" and Penelope explained, "It was because when we were working together, we didn't have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now. So it was a way to call each other lazy."
7 Mindy Kaling And Reese Witherspoon
Mindy Kaling is a new mom to her daughter, Katherine, who was born on December 15, 2017. Reese Witherspoon shares two kids, 20-year-old Ava and 16-year-old Deacon, with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. She and her husband, Jim Toth, have a seven-year-old son, Tennessee.
Mindy and Reese are another great celebrity mom duo who are friends. According to Seventeen, they met while filming A Wrinkle In Time and have nicknames: Reese calls Mindy "Min Diesel" and Mindy calls Reese "Reeses Pieces." There's nothing better than that (and who wants candy now?!).
6 Eva Longoria And Victoria Beckham
Eva Longoria and Victoria Beckham are two other great celebrity mom duos. Victoria has four kids: 2o-year-old son Brooklyn, 17-year-old son Romeo, 14-year-old son Cruz, and eight-year-old daughter Harper. We bet that Victoria has been a great support system for Eva since having her son, Santiago, in 2018.
Hello Magazine says that these two have been really good friends for over a decade. Eva called her "the funniest woman alive," which is something we would definitely say about our best friends since humor is everything, so we can relate to their friendship.
5 Nicole Kidman And Naomi Watts
Marie Claire says that these two stars have more than two decades of friendship behind them. Nicole Kidman shares two kids with her ex-husband Tom Cruise: a 26-year-old daughter named Isabella, and a 24-year-old son named Connor. She and her husband, Keith Urban, have two daughters: 11-year-old Sunday Rose and 8-year-old Faith Margaret. And Naomi Watts has three children: 12-year-old Sascha, 11-year-old Kai, and 10-year-old Samuel.
When Nicole turned 52 in June 2019, Naomi took the opportunity to talk about how much she loves her friend and how special their friendship is to her. What's even cooler is that they even were pals back in high school in Australia.
4 Jennifer Lopez And Jenna Dewan
Jennifer Lopez and Jenna Dewan seem to have a lot in common as they're both talented dancers and performers. So it makes sense that would both end up on the reality TV show World Of Dance. After they filmed the show, they have been good friends, according to Seventeen.
They have something else in common: they're both mothers. While J.Lo is mom to twin 11-year-olds, Maximilian and Emme, Jenna shares her six-year-old daughter Everly with her ex, Channing Tatum.
3 Kim Kardashian West And Chrissy Teigen
It's tough to think of two more famous people than Kim Kardashian West and Chrissy Teigen. The two have huge social media followings, have appeared on TV, and of course, are also mothers.
Cheat Sheet says that while the two celebrities were first introduced to each other in 2010, it was the birth of Chrissy Teigen's first child, Luna, in 2016 that helped them bond as moms. Chrissy has been quoted as saying, "Everyone knows this. You helped us find the doctor for IVF and a lot of the same things…you taught me everything.”
2 Amy Poehler And Tina Fey
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have been best friends for a long time, rising up through the ranks of the comedy world together. They have been in many movies together, from 2008's Baby Mama to 2015's Sisters, and they are also both mothers. They're both moms of two: Amy has two sons (11-year-old Archie and 9-year-old Abel) and Tina has two daughters (14-year-old Alice and 8-year-old Penelope).
These two are not only some of our favorite celeb mom pals but they are so hilarious that we bet they crack each other up all the time.
1 Busy Philipps And Michelle Williams
Finally, we have these two actresses, who are our favorite celebrity mom duo. Since meeting on the set of Dawson's Creek, the teen drama that made Michelle Williams famous thanks to her character Jen Lindley, the two have been really close. Busy is mom to two daughters, Cricket (six) and Birdie (11), and Michelle has a 14-year-daughter, Matilda, whose father is the late Heath Ledger.
The two are often seen together laughing and having a great time together on the red carpet at events and award shows. And they often talk about how wonderful their friendship is. As Michelle said, "That's the love of my life right there." Awww.
