Mom Brain: Celebrity Mom Crush

"You know what, I have a good answer for that one. I got one. Christy Turlington. The fact that she's doing work in the non profit sector for mothers is really really wonderful." — Laura Fenton, Lifestyle Director, Parents

"Eva Mendez. I think it's because I'm trying to get closer to Ryan Gosling." — Grace Bastidas, Editor-in-Chief, Ser Padres and Parents Latina

"My celebrity mom crush is probably Michelle Obama. She's awesome, she's fierce, she works hard. I feel like her daughters are growing up to be nice young ladies. And she has Freaking amazing arms." — Jenna Helwig, Food Editor, Parents  

"Leslie Mann. She’s not a regular mom, she’s a cool mom lol. Seriously, she’s just so funny and honest all the time, but she also has that fierce mama-bear thing going on, and says time and time again how much she just loves being a mom." — Hollee Actman Becker, Parents.com contributing writer

"Julia Roberts. She just seems very chill, very relaxed, very non-Hollywood, which I kind of appreciate." — Eilzabeth Anne Shaw, Editor-in-Chief, FamilyFun

"My celebrity pregnant mom crush has to be Keira Knightley. When she was asked what her birth plan was, and she said her birth plan was to get the baby out." — Julia Dennison, Digital Director, Parents.com

"I would say my celebrity mom crush is Tina Fey. I love that she's a working mom. I loved Bossy Pants and I feel like she really gets the working-mom struggle." — Julia Edelstein, Senior Helth Editor, Parents

"I love Chrissy Teigen. For a brand-new mom to have the kind of confidence and irreverence that she has, I think that's amazing." — Erika Janes, Executive Editor, Parents.com

I've always loved Reese Witherspoon and then I liked her even more after she had kids and still was kinda like cute and stylish and seem like a fun mom so I guess my celebrity mom crush is just a mom who seems like she's not a mom." — Ayn-Monique Khlare, Deputy Editor, FamilyFun
