FashiOnable Hollywood Moms
Angelina Jolie, Tori Spelling, Melissa Joan Hart, & More Stars Get Mom’s Day Gift Baskets
“Mommie Dearest” was a story about classic movie queen Joan Crawford, who turned out to be the mother-from-hell, according to her daughter Christina. Although we’ve seen some recent examples of how motherhood doesn’t mix well with wild celebrity antics, let’s put the focus on the great moms we’ve seen in Hollywood.
At the head of the list has to be Angelina Jolie, who takes care of her growing family, juggling movie projects and humanitarian efforts, and looks fabulous doing.
Also, we personally know another lovely candidate for a “great mom” award. Melissa Joan Hart, the former child star of Nickelodeon’s Clarissa Explains It All, and Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, and husband-musician Mark Wilkerson, have two boys, Mason, two-years, and Brady two-months.
During a recent outing with the kids, we saw how she makes her family her top priority, and still finds time to run Hartbreak Productions with her mom Paula. Plus Melissa did two movies this year, Whispers & Lies and Satin.
New mom Tori Spelling, of one-year-old Liam, is also juggling producing duties with her husband-actor Dean McDermott for their Oxygen series Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood. She’s also producing another child.
The second season premiere of the Tori & Dean reality show airs Tuesday, June 17 on the Oxygen channel, around the same time her baby girl is due. Tori said she talks to little Liam about what’s happening, “but all he understands is [mom has] a big belly to climb on. My belly button is popping out, so he like to play with it.”
Tori revealed that this pregnancy is harder because even though she was working every day on the first season of the show, “on the weekends I could sleep in and pamper myself a little. When you have one-year-old, you can’t.”
Dean added, “There’s no more sleeping, ever again.” And with Mother’s Day coming up, Dean plans something very special for his wife, reporting, “She’s a special mom, and she’s going to have a very, very special day.”
A lot of celebrity moms in Hollywood are going to have a special day, with a mother load of gifts from Distinctive Assets, the celebrity gifting firm that puts their clients’ products in the spotlight with the stars.
