There are a handful of female celebs that used to have a wild side but gave up their partying ways once they became a mom. These ladies overcame their bad reputations to settle down and start a family. This list includes socialites who spent time in the slammer, performers who overcame their addictions, and reality stars who were known for their naughty behavior.
We have to give credit to these famous moms for getting their acts together for the sake of their children. Motherhood has totally settled these ladies down. Please enjoy this list of 10 celebs who gave up their wild ways after becoming a mom.
10 Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore has two little girls, Olive and Frankie. We may know her as a super dedicated mom these days but she has a bit of a wild past. Trouble started for Barrymore when she was a child star and partied on the Hollywood scene as a young girl.
Things just continued to spiral out of control and she even posed for Playboy in the '90s. It wasn’t until she became a mom that she gave up her vices and settled down. Yet, we’ll always remember her as the wild child who once performed a risque dance on David Letterman’s desk.
Anyone who follows Pink on Instagram knows how much she loves being a mom. The singer has a history of posting adorable pics of her kid as they embarked on her Beautiful Trauma Tour as a family. Her dedication to her children is obvious but she was a total rebel before she married Carey Hart.
Pink has openly talked about being a teenage runaway. Her wild past includes substance abuse, clubbing, and she’s even admitted to dealing drugs. She’s come a long way since her partying days and it seems like motherhood totally suits her.
If there’s one celeb mom that overcame her troubled past, it’s Fergie. The Black Eyed Peas singer has been extremely vocal about her younger days of addiction. From paranoia to hallucinations, Fergie doesn’t hold back when she discusses how hard she worked to overcome drug abuse.
These days, she’s a single mom to her adorable son, Axl. She co-parents with her ex-husband Josh Duhamel. Gone are her partying ways and now we see Fergie all grown up and acting like a responsible mother. It’s good to see that she got her life back on track and we love that she’s such a great role model.
7 Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi
We all remember Snooki from her time on the MTV television series Jersey Shore. The reality star was once famous for her partying ways and was even arrested for public intoxication. Fans of the show watched as she engaged in all sorts of naughty behavior.
Nowadays, Nicole Pilozzi is better known for being a mom to her three kids, Lorenzo, Giovanna, and Angelo. She leads a totally normal and healthy life as a wife and mother. She is active on social media, posting cute family moments. We think if Snooki can settle down, anyone can. She’s a long way from the Jersey Shore.
6 Nicole Richie
If we were to judge Nicole Richie on her wild past, one wouldn’t think that she could’ve ever grown up to be a well-adjusted wife and mom. She was a favorite Hollywood party girl who was always flashing her lady bits at the paparazzi.
Things hit rock bottom for her when she drove the wrong way down a Los Angeles highway and was arrested for DUI. Now, she’s married to Joel Madden and is a mom to her two kids, Harlow and Sparrow. You’re more likely to see a pic of her enjoying life with her family than to see her grimacing in a mugshot.
5 Britney Spears
Britney Spears has quite a checkered past. We all remember her infamous head-shaving incident and that one time she attacked the paparazzi with an umbrella. The singer has overcome her struggles and has totally taken on the role of mom to her two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.
We can only imagine the hard work it took for her to get her life together but it’s so inspiring to know that she let her wild ways become a thing of the past for the sake of her children. Both boys always appear happy and healthy. Way to go, Britney! Keep up the good work.
4 Kendra Wilkinson
Kendra Wilkinson found fame as one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends in the series, The Girl Next Door. Fans followed her life as a Playboy bunny and it’s almost shocking to see how motherhood has changed her. She went from a scantily clad model to mom to her two children, Alijah and Hank.
She’s now very vocal about how much she enjoys being a mother and is very dedicated to giving them a normal life. We can’t help but wonder if she’ll keep her wild past a secret or not. It seems like she’s put those days behind her for good.
3 Kim Kardashian West
Kim Kardashian had quite a reputation when she was younger. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star faced a scandal when a risque video was released of her engaging in some serious bad girl behavior. She was also well-known as one of Hollywood’s party girls.
Well, those days are a thing of the past as she’s stopped her wild ways since becoming a mom to her four children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. She still struts her stuff for the cameras but for the most part, she leads a domestic life with her husband, Kanye West.
2 Gwen Stefani
Gwen Stefani was the lead singer of the band No Doubt and was a total wild child. Her punk rock style gave her an edge over the other girls and she became known as the ultimate rocker chick. She still rocks with the best of them but now she’s mom to her three sons, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.
You’re more likely to see her walking the red carpet of the Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards than you are to see her out on the town. It’s obvious by the smiles on her kids’ faces that she puts just as much effort into motherhood and she does her musical career.
1 Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie was quite a rebel before she became a mom. She was always shocking the world. Be it with her over-the-top PDA with her ex-husband Billy Bob Thorton or that one time she smooched her brother as the Oscars.
She let all of her wild ways go when she adopted her son Maddox. Since then, she added a few kids to her brood and is mom to her five other children, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne, and Knox. The family just went through a very nasty separation from Brad Pitt and now Angelina has now taken on the role of a single mom.
