8 Celebrity Moms You Wouldn’t Think To Follow On Twitter But Totally Should
After spending most of my life in NYC, I wouldn’t consider myself someone overly impressed by celebrities. I put myself through college waiting tables and tending bar in Manhattan, so I can tell you; they schmear their cream cheese and nurse their hangovers just like you and me. That being said, I think it’s awesome when a celebrity mom can be open and honest about the struggles of parenting. I mean, sure, they typically have resources that the average parent can only dream of. But in the end, I think even rich people parenting has its difficult moments, and a celebrity mom who’s willing to share that can go a long way in making other mothers feel less isolated (even if they often have cray cray ways of doing it).
Below are my ten favorite celebrity Twitter moms you probably didn’t realize you should be following ASAP.
8. Alyson Hannigan
Judging from her Twitter account, Alyson Hannigan seems like the most laid back, fun, someone-to-have-a-beer-with mom ever. And really, who hasn’t sat up wondering strange thoughts about Miley Cyrus in the middle of the night?
7. Gwyneth Paltrow
Now, before you start chucking rotten fruit at your computer screens, hear me out. I know Paltrow can be annoying as hell and kind of a douche, but she also has a lot of great things to say about important issues such as single parenting, breastfeeding and body image. And there’s food porn. OH, the food porn! As long as you stay away from Goop, you should be a-okay.
6. Olivia Wilde
Speaking of breastfeeding, I think we all remember the above photo and the ridiculous controversy it started, which might make you love Olivia but perhaps not enough to follow her on Twitter. But there is so much more! She’s funny, witty and smart as hell, and her tweets range from humor, to movie reviews and politics.
