Top 10 Celebrity Moms

Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross was desperate to get pregnant after her 2006 marriage to stockbroker Tom Mahoney. But already in her early 40s, Marcia felt like time was running out. The fiery red head spoke openly about her struggles to get pregnant, which made her announcement that she was expecting fraternal twins all the more exciting. Born on February 20, 2007, Savannah and Eden are now two busy little girls with a doting mom who loves to take them to the park. Way to go Marcia: desperate no more!
Former child star, model, comedian, author and actress, Brooke Shields also proudly wears the title of mom. The A-lister is also mommy to Rowan Francis, born May 2003 and Grier Hammon, born April 2006. After her first daughter was born, Shields battled a debilitating case of post-partum depression. Having recovered through therapy and anti-depressants, Brooke used her platform to spread the word about post-partum depression. Her book Down Came the Rain documents her struggle and triumph over PPD, which afflicts as many as one in five post-partum moms.
When Tom Cruise, came out against Brooke's use of medication to treat depression (a position associated with his belief in Scientology), Shields fought back with a staunch Op-Ed piece in the New York Times about women and depression.
A former Princeton University ungrad, Brooke is bright and passionate - but she also values her friends, so she made up with Tom and even attended his 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes. Brooke makes the perfect role model to her girls - beauty, brains and compassion!
Sarah Jessica Parker
Star of the hit TV show and movies, Sex in the City and Sex in the City II, design entrepreneur, political activists and wife to Broadway actor Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker seemingly does it all. Of course, the most important title she holds is that of mom to son James Wilke, born October, 2002, and twin daughters, Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, born on June 22, 2009 via surrogate after years of infertility.
In a May 2010 interview with Vogue magazine, Parker reflected on the day her girls came home: "Meeting your children rather than giving birth to them, it's as if, um, it's -- suspended animation. The gestational experience is gone. It's as if everything else disappears for a moment, and the world goes silent and -- I can't explain it except to say that nothing else existed," the 45-year old actress said. Despite playing spoiled diva Carrie Bradshaw on Sex, Parker says she is very hands-on when it comes to her family -- in everything from making her children's food to putting together their high chairs.
