10 Celebrity Single Mom's

I'm always a big fan of reading celebrity news and love seeing single mom's doing their are some great celebrity single moms!

We already knew actress Sandra Bullock had three stepkids from her marriage to Jesse James. But things changed quickly this year: first she won the Oscar for her role in The Blind Side, then discovered that her husband was cheating and subsequently filed for divorce, and finally revealed that she'd secretly adopted a baby boy, Louis Bardo, from New Orleans. All new moms deal with change, but Bullock handled life's curveballs with grace -- a trait that will make her a great mom.

Halle Berry

Proof that beauty doesn't always bring happiness, actress Halle Barry has been through two rocky marriages, so we were thrilled to hear her announce some good news in 2007: that she was pregnant by equally gorgeous model boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey. The couple welcomed daughter Nahla in 2008, but split in 2010, promising to keep things amicable for their daughter.

Kate Winslet

The Oscar-winning actress surprised everyone when she announced her separation from director husband Sam Mendes. Both called the split "extremely amicable" and it certainly looks that way since they since been seen together with the kids, Mia (9, Winslet's daughter from a previous marriage) and Joe (6).

Kate Hudson

After splitting with rocker Chris Robinson in 2006, and dating hot bachelors like Alex Rodriguez, Lance Armstrong and Owen Wilson, the number one man in actress Kate Hudson's life has always been her son Ryder, 5. Hudson and Robinson are still close; "For both Chris and me, our main focus is, and was, Ryder. And happy parents, happy baby," she told People magazine.

Padma Lakshmi
The gorgeous Top Chef host (and Salman Rushdie ex) stayed quiet about the identity of her baby's daddy during pregnancy, which she considered a "medical miracle" since she struggles with endometriosis. Soon after the birth of daughter Krishna, the father was revealed to be venture capitalist Adam Dell. We think Lakshmi, author of two cookbooks that emphasize spice, is the mom least likely to have a picky eater.

Michelle Williams

Single parenting is never easy, but it's got to be extra tough when your child's father passes away suddenly. Actress Michelle Williams handled the shocking death of her daughter Mathilda's father, actor Heath Ledger, with poise. She's tackling single motherhood in Brooklyn, and is often seen hanging around the nabe's coffee shops.

Katie Couric

Widowed in 1998 when her husband succumbed to colon cancer, TV journalist Katie Couric was left to raise daughters Ellie and Carrie, then ages 6 and 2, alone. Now, with two teenagers and a flourishing career as anchor for CBS Evening News, we think she's a stellar example for other single moms.

Minnie Driver

Mom to Henry Story, actress Minnie Driver has likened becoming the first year of parenthood to an "insane earthquake." The actress and singer has kept mum on the identity and relationship of Henry's father, but she did reveal that she goes online to get parenting advice from other moms.

Denise Richards

After a very public, very nasty divorce with Charlie Sheen, actress Denise Richards was granted full custody of daughters Sam (6) and Lola (4) in 2010, making her a single mom who calls all the shots. Richards seems to be a very hands-on mom, hanging with her kids at the playground and taking them to camp -- a far cry from her days as a sexy Bond Girl.

Liv Tyler
The Armageddon and Lord of the Rings star may not be racking up compliments from ex husband rocker Royston Langdon anymore, but she does have a special guy in her life to remind her how beautiful she is -- her son Milo, born in December 2004. "He likes to call me his princess. He says, 'Oh, Mommy, you're so cute. You're my precious, precious mommy,'" she told People. Aw.
