If you thought that motherhood was a thief of good looks and a hot body, then you would be wrong. So totally, completely, utterly wrong. Here we have 20 ladies that show us that you can still be a mom and be a stunner. Here is our list of the 20 Hottest Female Celebs Under 30 You Didn’t Know Have Kids. Really, we weren’t even aware that these hot mamas were literally hot moms. But, here you have it. There are singers, athletes, models, and actresses here who have not let motherhood put a damper on their lives or careers. In fact, motherhood has brought out the best in these women!
We all might think that once a woman gets pregnant, she needs to ditch the mini-dresses, the bathing suits, and the body-hugging outfits. The reality is that with hard work and self-care, a woman can give the best to her baby and herself. Just take a look at Hilary Duff, Heather Morris, Hayden Panetierre, and the other lovely ladies on our list. And prepare to be amazed at just how good motherhood looks on them!
And by the way; whoever said that women were not strong was so mistaken. These gals are tough and hot!
20. Teresa Palmer
Teresa Palmer is going to star in the remake of a 1991 thriller, and this Aussie actress is the perfect fit for the role. She is tough, sexy, and who knew? A mom! The actress and model shines bright wherever she goes, and she should be a beautiful damsel in distress in Point Break. The 29-year-old almost didn’t make it onto our list, but here she is. Her son is Bodhi Rain, born in 2014. Teresa had Bodhi with Mark Webber, an actor-director she married in late 2013. Be sure to catch Teresa in other upcoming films, such as Lights Out, The Choice, and Hacksaw Ridge.
19. Heather Morris
This 28-year-old actress is on fire, and motherhood is definitely not holding her back. She is underway with her second child with husband Taylor Hubbell. Their first son is Elijah, and while Heather cares for him, she is still excelling in her acting career. Her latest gig is The Cleansing Hour, a horror short film. Just when we thought that hot celebs couldn’t possibly relate to us common folks, we have Heather Morris. She understands what it feels like to try to raise a 2-year-old while getting ready for another bun in the oven and navigating the trials and tribulations of balancing home and life. Go, Heather!
18. Megan Fox
We love Megan Fox, plain and simple. Hello, have you seen her in Transformers? And what about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Now the 29-year-old actress is getting ready for the sequel! Yes, TMNT 2 will be coming soon, and Megan Fox is totally on board. When she isn’t look super-hot behind the camera or on the red carpet, Megan is playing mommy to her little children, Noah Shannon and Bodhi Ransom. Megan married her hubby Brian Austin Green in 2010. We remember when Megan was just a teenage bad-girl in the movies. Now she is all grown up and taking care of her own bundles of joy!
17. Blake Lively
Yup, Blake Lively is a mom. Hard to believe, isn’t it? Maybe not so much, considering that she is downright gorgeous and, well, who wouldn’t want to bed her? Blake is married to Ryan Reynolds and they have one child together, so far! She is James Reynolds and while we aren’t sure why she has a guy’s name, we’re not ones to judge! So far, there is little known about James, but Blake and Ryan are beyond thrilled about being parents together, and you can bet that with her parents, James is going to be a stunner. No duh.
16. Brooklyn Decker
In October 2015, Brooklyn Decker welcomed her sweet little boy into the world. It was her first child with her hubby, professional tennis player Andy Roddick. And you can bet that Brooklyn is still looking super-attractive. The actress and model has appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, as well as ads for The Gap and Victoria’s Secret. She has graced the pages of Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Glamour, and was even in a 3 Doors Down music vid. Not too shabby! No wonder Esquire named her the Sexiest Woman Alive in 2010. Even now she is still hot, hot, hot and still young!
15. Naya Rivera
This singer-actress is one hottie with a body. Even after the birth of her bundle of joy. Naya had her baby boy, Josey Hollis, in the fall of 2015 and the Glee actress could not be happier. Her and her husband, Ryan Dorsey, are bound to be great parents to the little guy. Even Naya’s nude pregnancy photo was absolutely stunning, and tastefully done as she donned a mink wrap during the shoot. Even through the aches and pains, Naya was a trooper and we bet she will be singing lullabies to little Josey every night she can. So sweet!
14. Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff will forever be that good girl next door. And we love her for that. The blonde beauty has a child with her ex-husband Mike Comrie of the NHL. Their son, Luca Cruz, is sure to be a cutie! Hilary recently recorded a cover of “Little Lies,” by Fleetwood Mac. Ambitious, but totally successful. Not only can Hilary act, but she is a great singer, too. And probably a fabulous mom. Now that she’s single and ready to mingle, maybe Luca will have a step-daddy? Who knows! For now, we’ll just sit back and enjoy Hilary’s latest music album, Breathe In. Breathe Out.
13. Kristin Cavallari
Kristin Cavallari is a gorgeous mama, as well as a fashion designer, actress, and television personality. Her children are Camden Jack, Jaxon Wyatt, and Saylor James. Unfortunately, Kristin and the Cavallari family have been dealing with some hardships lately. The press and media have been all over the sudden death of Michael Cavallari, Kristin’s younger brother. While Kristin started out on The Hills, the world grew to appreciate her as she ventured into acting gigs alongside Amy Poehler, as well as her humanitarian work. She works with Until There’s a Cure, an AIDS awareness and research charity. She’s even traveled to third-world countries.
12. Hayden Panettiere
The 26-year-old actress was quite open and vocal about her struggles with post-partum depression after the birth of her baby, Kaya Evdokia. Hayden actually announced that she was going to take a break from her hit show Nashville so that she could get her mental and physical health back in order. We have got to hand it to her; she is one strong woman. We literally watched her grow up on the television and big screen. She is still pretty young, and has lots of life and success ahead of her, we just know it! Meanwhile, we hope she gets the care she deserves.
11. Leighton Meester
This 29-year-old Texas belle has been a star for years. She works as a singer and actress and made a huge splash on the hit drama television series Gossip Girl (alongside Blake Lively!) Leighton is the mother to Arlo, her only child, and with her voice, we can bet that she will be soothing Arlo to sleep, no problem. In fact, Leighton recently showed off her talents on YouTube, alongside Dana Williams as the two sang “Blue Christmas.” So cute! Leighton is married to the also-gorgeous Adam Brody, who is an actor most famous for his role in The O.C.
10. Candace Parker
Being tall and gorgeous is not a crime. Just ask Candace Parker. This basketball great is 29 years old and a mother to Lailaa Nicole, whom she cares for with her husband, Shelden Williams. There is a reason why Candace made it onto the 100 World’s Most Beautiful People list by People Magazine. Just look at her! Strong, fierce, and leggy, she plays in the WNBA for the Los Angeles Sparks and she sure sparks our interest! Candace is popular with both kids and adults, making her a wholesome figure for our list. Surely, she and Shelden are doing a wonderful job with their little one.
9. Caroline Celico
Okay, this is a Brazilian woman, so you know she is going to be extremely good-looking. Caroline Celico is singer and previously worked as an Evangelical pastor. Is she an angel or what? She is also a very hot mom, and her children are named Luca and Isabella. Caroline was married to Ricardo Kaka (a professional soccer player,) for 10 years. Besides singing, Caroline did some modeling work here and there. Of course! She is also a humanitarian, and started Horizontal Love, a charity that gives food, education, and construction supplies to NGOs in Brazil. Sounds like she is just all-around awesome!
8. Candice Crawford
We wonder what it would be like to have a beauty queen for a mom. Well, we will just have to ask Hawkins and Rivers when they get a bit older! They are the children of Candice Crawford, former Miss Missouri and reporter in Texas. Oh, and she is also married to Tony Romo. No big deal. Wow, those kids are going to have to fill some big shoes. Not only are their parents super-talented, but they are beyond good-looking. Especially Candice; the blonde-haired beauty is definitely model material. How did she ever slip under our radar? No more of that!
Okay, so Snooki is not exactly a celebrity, but enough people know about her from her stint on Jersey Shore for us to put her on our list. And even though she is not the wisest woman out there, we are focusing on looks her, not intellect. So Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is here. We didn’t even know that the 28-year-old had children! Snooki is the mom to Lorenzo Dominic and Giovanna Marie. Wow, is that Italian enough for ya? Anyway, Snooki has been in the news for her rocky relationship. Apparently her hubby, Jionni Lavalle, has been eluding her. Ugh.
6. Solange Knowles
Solange Knowles is the younger sister to Queen B herself. The 29-year-old Solange is a superstar in her own right though! She is also a mommy, who would’ve thought? Back in 2004, Solange was just 17 and married Daniel Smith. Shortly afterwards, she gave birth to Daniel Julez Judo Smith, Jr. (what a name.) While the pregnancy was unplanned, Solange is happy to be a mommy, and her son is a huge source of joy and love in her life. Aw. Solange even penned a ditty for her son, “6 O’Clock Blues.” Now Solange has a new hubby, music video director Alan Ferguson. They got married in late 2014.
5. Jamie Lynn Spears
Jamie Lynn Spears is just 24 years old, but she ended up getting pregnant at the age of 16. That event was responsible for sending her acting career down the toilet. Prior to that, she was a teen queen (much like her older sis, Britney Spears,) and was starring on the hit Nickelodeon television show Zoey 101. While Jamie Lynn did not marry the man who got her pregnant (Casey Aldridge,) she did eventually get engaged and then married to another man, Jamie Watson, a businessman. Hm, well done, Jamie Lynn! By the way, her daughter is the magnificent Maddie.
When Adele went on a hiatus a few years back, the world sorely missed her. But Adele was busy going on the down-low so she could have her baby and be a totally dedicated mummy. And now that she is back on the scene, the world cannot get enough! Her hit song “Hello” has smashed the charts and is blaring on so many radio stations 24/7. Now that she is going on tour, there are huge lines and lots of frustration as people flock to snag a ticket. Even so, prices are soaring through the stratosphere, but don’t blame Adele. She can’t help it if she’s an awesome singer. And an awesome mum to Angelo James!
3. Asia Nitollano
Asia Nitollano may not be the first person who think of when we sing “Don’t you wish your girlfriend was hot like me.” But, she was a member of the famed Pussycat Dolls and then went on to start her own solo music career. Besides being a singer, she also works as a cheerleader, dancer, and model. Oh, and she’s a mom, too! And while Asia is mostly forgotten or seriously under the radar, she is supposedly working on music, although she is not currently signed by a recording label. Hopefully she is paying equal attention to her child, and maybe in the future we will be hearing from her!
2. Keisha Castle-Hughes
Did anyone ever watch Whale Rider? Anyone? Hey, it was a good movie! And it starred a (younger) Keisha Castle-Hughes. Now the actress is 25 years old and a mother already! Her daughter is Felicity-Amore, and if she looks anything like her mama, she is going to be a rare beauty. Keisha is from New Zealand and is still acting. She was in a lot of smaller and lesser-known productions, but now she is starring as Obara Sand in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. Obara Sand is one of the “Sand Snakes,” and she is most likely to appear in the upcoming season of the show.
1. Bristol Palin
Sure, Bristol Palin is not an actor or a singer, but she is the daughter of Sarah Palin, which grants her enough celebrity status to be on this list. At just 25 years of age, Bristol is the mother to Tripp Easton, her first child. In the summer of 2015, she announced that she was yet again pregnant, and that is was unplanned and kind of disappointing, but she’s made it through. Now Bristol speaks out about birth control (no duh) and hopefully she can actually stay in a decent relationship. Her past boyfriends, fiancés, and partners have been a bit tumultuous, to say the least.
