It’s celebrity Wednesday once again here at We Got Kidz, and since there didn’t seem to be any truly notable news in the celebrity stratosphere – except for Jessica Simpson finally dropping that 9 pound gut full ‘o baby girl (Welcome… Maxwell Drew? Hm…) – I decided that in light of the upcoming Mother’s Day that I would do an ode to celebrity moms.
So get your “awwws” ready for some adorable images and insights on motherhood from some of your favorite celebrity moms.

"Hmm .... well, you know when you get a TV you get a manual? Well, there isn’t one for motherhood. I’m constantly trying to figure it out and questioning whether I’m doing it right. But I’m so proud of my kids. They are very well-mannered. We’ve always been very strict with the kids. That’s the way David and myself were brought up. But they’re free spirits as well. They laugh. They joke. They have fantastic personalities. I love hanging out with them."
