Celebrity moms 2011
Some have toddlers, some have teens. From Sandra Bullock to Catherine Zeta-Jones to Nicole Richie, here's a look at Hollywood moms.
Catherine Zeta-Jones was born 25 years to the day after husband Michael Douglas. She says that when they met, he told her "I'd like to father your children." Their son, Dylan, was born in 2000, and daughter Carys in 2003. Recently, Douglas has fought throat cancer while Zeta-Jones sought treatment for bipolar disorder.
Let's hope Edie Falco's own family life is calmer than that of her famous character, Carmela Soprano. Her two children are son Anderson and daughter Macy. Both are adopted, and Falco has said "I'm just not one of those people who thought having biological children was that important."
Melanie Griffith's daughter Dakota, was born in 1989 and is her only child with ex-husband Don Johnson. She has a son, Alexander, born on August 22, 1985, with her other ex-husband Steven Bauer and a daughter Stella,born on September 24, 1996, with Antonio Banderas.
They may be Hollywood's most famous family. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have six children, three of whom came to their family via international adoption. Maddox is from Cambodia, Zahara from Ethiopia, and Paz from Vietnam. Twins Knox and Vivienne were born in 2008 and daughter Shiloh in 2006. Rumors constantly claim that Jolie and Pitt are looking to add to their family.
Singer Madonna gave birth to daughter Lourdes in 1996 with Carlos Leon. She also has two sons -- Rocco with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, and David, who was adopted from Malawi. In 2009, she adopted again from Malawi, and daughter Mercy, seen here with Madonna and Lourdes, joined the family.
Denise Richards poses with daughters Sam and Lola Sheen. The girls have two half-brothers in dad Charlie Sheen's twins, Bob and Max, born during Sheen's marriage to Brooke Mueller. In 2008, Sheen and Richards went to court over her desire to include the girls in her reality show, "Denise Richards: It's Complicated." Richards won the case, but Sheen urged his fans to boycott the show.
Actress Brooke Shields has two daughters with husband Chris Henchy. Rowan was born in 2003 and Grier in 2006. Shields fought a much-publicized battle with postpartum depression after Rowan's birth, and wrote a book, "Down Came the Rain," about her struggle. Her revelations led to a battle with actor Tom Cruise, who criticized Shields for taking antidepressants. They later made up and Shields and Henchy even attended Cruise's wedding to Katie Holmes.
