There are many young and beautiful celebrities in the entertainment industry that are constantly photographed and televised so everyone can admire their good looks, but some of the most spectacular looking women do more than just look good. They are not only deemed beautiful, but also mothers and single parents. Neither age, nor motherhood has stumped the stunning appearance of many female celebrities.

They have left their broken relationships behind and dedicated themselves to being wonderful moms.
Being a single parent can be an enormous challenge. It can be especially difficult when it has to be done in the public eye with a demanding career that requires them to share their time, but these single celebrity moms have dealt with higher hurtles. They have surpassed the hardships of their personal lives and are using their time as single moms to focus on their children.
