12 Celeb Moms' Parenting Style, According to Their Zodiac Sign
Born on July 18, Kristen Bell is a Cancer, a water sign ruled by the moon that's perhaps the most maternal in the whole zodiac. Cancers tend to act like moms well before they even have L.O.s, wanting to take care of their younger siblings, baby dolls, or babysitting. There's no doubt that Bell is family-oriented and close with her daughters Delta, 2, and Lincoln, 4, with husband Dax Shepard. And as an emotional person who values her home life, it's no surprise that she makes a point to keep her daughters out of the spotlight as much as possible.
Celebrating her b-day on November 30, Chrissy Teigen was born under the fire sign Sagittarius, which is associated with the ninth house in astrology, which has to do with long-distance travel and higher education. No wonder baby Luna has had such a blast globe-trotting with her mama! (Most recently, Teigen and husband John Legend brought their 1-year-old with them to Bali.) As Luna grows up, Teigen will most definitely want her to experience a bevy of cultures and learning opportunities! Sags are also known for being outspoken, which has certainly been the case for Teigen, who's known for her real talk on everything from postpartum depression to the bold outfits she rocks on the red carpet.
Born on February 1, Lauren Conrad is an Aquarius, an air sign associated with the eleventh house of networking and friendship. In other words, LC is a social new mom who prides herself on having a diverse group of friends and being able to connect with lots of different kinds of people (which she often does through her lifestyle blogging and fashion design!). Sounds counterintutiive, but as forward-thinking, tech-savvy, and innovative as they tend to be, Aquarians can be rather stubborn. Once they've decided to get that one stroller or opt for a particular birth plan, it will take a lot to dissuade them. At the same time, they're all about the expression "it takes a village" to raise a child. No wonder LC recently thanked her lucky stars that she will have lots of family around to help with her son Liam, who she welcomed with husband William Tell on July 5.
The actress and mom of two was born on March 10, which means she's a Pisces. This water sign is ruled by Neptune, a planet associated with creativity, inspiration, dreams, and psychic abilities. Pisceans are known for their empathy and artistry, both traits Wilde undoubtedly exhibits in her family life. She's also all about wearing her heart on her sleeve while entertaining and relating to other mamas, often documenting her own motherhood trials and tribulations on social media. (Remember when she wrote on Instagram last year: "I call this hairstyle, 'keep the kid alive.' Products you'll need: sweat, string cheese, diaper rash cream, chewed up crayon, snot, and an enthusiastic spritz of panic"? Ha.) Clearly, her L.O.s with husband Jason Sudeikis—Otis, 3, and Daisy, 9 months—have a majorly big-hearted and brilliant mama.
Born on August 14, Mila Kunis is a Leo, a fire sign ruled by the bright sun. Leo's also associated with the fifth house in astrology, which involves romance and children. It's no wonder that Kunis feels comfortable in the spotlight, as Leos tend to absolutely love and feel quite natural being the center of attention. That said, as moms, they're really quite protective of their L.O.s (like a lioness!), so it makes sense that she and husband Ashton Kutcher try to keep
their daughter Wyatt, 2, and son Dimitri, 8 months, out of the public eye as much as they can. At home, Kunis is probably quite playful and loving with her L.O.s, as Leos tend to be kids at heart. She probably also loved entertaining and getting together with loved ones. As Kunis said back in March, according to People, "My entire family is very family oriented, and the holidays, whether it's Hanukkah, Easter, or Christmas, whenever there is an excuse to have food, everyone is really stoked."
Born on September 4, Beyonce—who just recently became a mom of three!—is a Virgo, an earth sign ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. This is one famous mama who is extremely comfortable with expressing herself, and since being a mom is such a huge part of who she is and how she identifies herself, she clearly loves incorporating her L.O.s Blue Ivy, 5, and newborn twins Rumi and Sir, into social media photo ops, videos, her music, or her performances. As a sensitive, analytical, and service-oriented Virgo, we can see that her role as a mom most definitely has inspired her work and how active she's been about social issues. She likely gives a lot of thought to just about everything related to her kids (even filing to patent their names!). Virgos also tend to be pretty reserved, especially about their innermost emotions, so it follows that Queen Bey prefers to play coy when it comes to particulars related to her family life.
Born on April 28, the actress, founder of The Honest Company, and soon-to-be mom of three is a Taurus, an earth sign ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Alba is clearly a typical business-savvy, down-to-earth, and domestic life-loving Taurus. So, it's no surprise that as a mom, she's a pragmatic homebody ... who has an eye for fashion, of course! Alba recently launched a kids' flip flop line with fellow famous mama Jenna Dewan Tatum. She's also showcased her passion for one particular domestic art: cooking! She also loves to involve her L.O.s in the kitchen. "It's good for them to understand the process of making food, and where it comes from," she once told People. "They are also more inclined to eat it, if they participate in making it."
The Younger star and mom of one was born on September 28, which makes her a Libra. The air sign, ruled by the planet of love and beauty Venus, is known for prioritizing balance, justice, and harmony above everything else. No doubt Duff appears to have done a superb job of handling her post-divorce life and co-parenting with her ex Mike Comrie with absolute grace. She's also a very warm, effusively loving mama, posting photos of herself snuggling up with and smooching her son Luca, 5. As a Libra, Duff will also likely pass on a love of art, music, and poetry to her little boy. In true Venusian style, she recently shared a beautiful poem that she reads when she has to spend time away from her L.O.
Born on November 22, Scarlett Johansson—mom of almost 3-year-old Rose Dorothy Dauriac—is a cusper, meaning she was born on the day the sun actually changed signs, but most astrologers agree she's a Scorpio. This water sign is known for being extremely private, so it makes sense that ScarJo keeps details about her home life and L.O. out of the spotlight. As a Scorpio mama, she likely experiences emotions very intensely, greatly values traditions and family obligations, and has the potential to be strict, as Scorps tend to like being in control.
Born on April 17, mom of three Jennifer Garner is an Aries. This fire sign, ruled by the planet of action Mars, is the first in the zodiac. Aries mamas tend to be a bit child-like themselves. They can also be impulsive, competitive, and naturally athletic. Garner likely is quite the master of her personal image (and has been handling it beautifully, in the wake of her split with estranged husband Ben Affleck). When she does get personal, she has no problem being direct about some of the less than glamorous aspects, as evidenced by her recent personal interview with Vanity Fair. If something sets her off—like a tantruming kiddo!—chances are she'll cool off just as quickly as she got fired up. Ultimately, she's likely all about being uber-protective and proud of her little ones. And she channels her passion toward doing good for others (she's an ambassador and trustee for the nonprofit Save the Children).
Named after her birth month, January Jones was born on January 5, which means she's a Capricorn. As an earth sign, ruled by the taskmaster planet Saturn, Jones is likely very much about putting her nose to the grindstone when it comes to her career and her job as a mom to 5-year-old son Xander. Caps tend to be kind of old school in that they're traditionalists who believe in tried-and-true approaches to parenting and discipline. And Capricorn mamas are also pretty darn badass, with a laser-focus on their priorities, so it's no surprise Jones recently told Red magazine: "I don't believe in regret. I just try to be a better person. Try to be a better mom." Preach, mama!
Angelina Jolie was born on June 4, which means she's a Gemini, an air sign ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and travel. No doubt she's able to talk any emotional troubles through with her six kids, and they likely love learning about a bevy of topics from their knowledgeable, worldly mama. Geminis tend to dislike being boxed into a steady routine, preferring to be spontaneous and take to the sky, so it's also no wonder Jolie is known for jet-setting frequently, with her kids by her side! And the air sign is known to be particularly fashion-forward, so Angie likely enjoys making sure her family always looks as posh as she does.
