From the average person’s point of view, celebrities are very fortunate, possessing almost everything they need and want, if not everything. Fame, money and good looks — they have what we average Joes can only dream of. And sometimes, we can’t help but be envious of them for the things they have. After all, we don’t really have much. Heck, we even struggle to pay our bills sometimes or find a date. So it’s totally understandable that some us covet their looks, while others covet their gorgeous partners. And when it comes to celebrities whose looks are not only coveted, but are also coveted by other people despite being in a relationship or married, this list of steamy, drop-dead gorgeous female celebrities who turn heads and break necks definitely takes the cake.
But before we move on, let’s just remind everyone that these stunning beauties have actually already popped out a baby or two, or more! And that makes them even more impressive. We all know how hard it is to get back to one’s old sexy figure after giving birth, but these amazing ladies have all managed to do that, with some of them even looking better than before they gave birth.
15 Blake Lively
For so many years, Blake Lively’s name was synonymous with Serena van der Woodsen, “it” girl and main character in the TV series Gossip Girl, which is based on the book series of the same name. As an “it” girl, Lively was arguably the most alluring and probably had the best style out of any other female characters in the show. She was actually named by AskMen.com as the most desirable woman of 2011 and was also named one of 2012’s Most Beautiful at Every Age by People magazine. After Gossip Girl ended, she went on to take more mature roles in The Age of Adaline and The Shallows, but not before marrying Green Lantern and Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds in 2012. The couple now has two daughters, James and Ines, but Lively remains to be one of the most coveted wives in Hollywood. She’s literally been glowing since she had her second baby.
14 Natalie Portman
One of the household names in Hollywood, Natalie Portman has had a long acting career, starting all the way in 1994. Since she began acting, she’s starred in a wide variety of roles, such as Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Evey Hammond in V for Vendetta, Jane Foster in Thor and Nina Sayers in Black Swan, for which she won an Academy Award, British Academy Film Award, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award and many more. Portman is married to French ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied, with whom she has two children, son Aleph and daughter Amalia. In 2014, the couple moved to Paris after Millepied had accepted the director of dance position. After just two years, Millepied quit his job and the family moved back to Los Angeles, something Portman was really happy about since the French apparently weren’t the friendliest people. Happy to have you back in America, Natalie!
13 Megan Fox
Megan Fox hasn’t been making much noise lately but we haven’t forgotten about her. What we may have forgotten is that Fox actually now has three children with husband and actor Brian Austin Green. Before giving birth to her children, however, Megan Fox was hailed as an international s*x symbol after the film Transformers broke her into the mainstream. She was featured on various magazine covers and was often named the “hottest” and “most beautiful woman” on plenty of lists throughout the years. Her most recent projects were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and its sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Her next film, Zeroville, is set to come out next year but what people have been talking about recently is how Fox posted an Instagram photo in which her 4-year-old son Noah was wearing a Frozen dress. The actress was mommy-shamed by many, but there were also some who came to her defence.
12 Gal Gadot
Unless you’re a huge fan of The Fast and the Furious franchise, you probably didn’t become aware of Gal Gadot’s existence until she was cast as Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe films. But after the first two films, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the solo film Wonder Woman, she’s quickly risen to the top, captivating not just the hearts of men from all over the world, but the hearts of women as well. And how can she not? Apart from looking completely amazing, she’s also bada*s. Not only did she serve in the Israel Defence Forces for two years, she also was a combat trainer there. On top of that, she did her own stunts in Fast & Furious and even received training in Kung Fu kickboxing, swordsmanship, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and capoeira for her role as Wonder Woman. But what many may have forgotten (or not know) is that she’s actually a mother of two! Gadot has two lovely daughters, Alma and Maya.
11 Scarlett Johansson
Another household name in the industry, Scarlett Johansson landed her first acting role in the fantasy comedy North which came out in 1994. Since then, she’s played big-name roles in films like Lost in Translation, Girl with a Pearl Earring, the Marvel Cinematic Universe films as Black Widow, Lucy, Her and Ghost in the Shell. An award-winning actress, Johansson has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was one of the world’s highest-paid actresses from 2014 to 2016. And like Fox, Johansson is a modern s*x symbol, ranking highly in many beauty listings, including Maxim’s Hot 100 from 2006 to 2014, Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, Playboy’s, Men’s Health and FHM's. The second on this list to have been married to Ryan Reynolds, Johansson married Frenchman Romain Dauriac in 2012 after her divorce to Reynolds was finalized in 2011. They have a daughter named Rose Dorothy but are unfortunately no longer together. They divorced in September 2017.
10 Mila Kunis
Mila Kunis was only 14 years old when she landed the role of Jackie Burkhart in the TV series That ‘70s Show, which ran from 1998 to 2006. We watched her grow from a rich, spoiled and immature girl to a beautiful, sweet woman in the last few seasons of the series. Two years after the show ended, we saw her in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which became her breakout film. Kunis has ranked very highly on multiple lists of the hottest or most beautiful women, reaching number 1 on FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World in 2013 and number 2 on AskMen’s Top 99 Women for 2013. She’s been married to That ‘70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher since 2012 and together they have two children, Wyatt Isabelle and Dimitri Portwood. She was cast in the comedy film Bad Moms (2016) as one of the bad moms, but we’re highly confident that she’s a great mother to her two kids.
9 Sofia Vergara
One of the older ladies on this list, Sofia Vergara still looks smokin’ at age 45. She even looks hotter than many of the female celebrities that are at least 10 years her junior. We have yet to know her secret to maintaining her looks, but what we do know now is that she was only 20 years old when she had her son Manolo with her high school sweetheart. So if you do the math, her son is already 25 years old, which makes it even easier to forget that she’s a mom! A film and TV actress, Vergara has appeared in The Smurfs, New Year’s Eve, Escape From Planet Earth and Hot Pursuit. She stars in Modern Family as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, the role which probably made her the top-earning actress on US television in 2016. In fact, she brought home $43 million in 2016 according to Forbes. So not only is she a babe, she’s also filthy rich.
8 Gwen Stefani
It feels like it was only yesterday when No Doubt dominated the music scene. But it’s actually already been 22 years since their third studio album, Tragic Kingdom, was released (“Don’t Speak” anyone?). Now a mother of three children, we still can’t wrap our heads around the fact that Gwen Stefani barely changed throughout the years. By that, we mean she’s barely aged! She continues to rock an amazing body and she could literally pass for a woman in her late 20s. Whatever she’s doing with her body, it seems she’s doing it right. She also looks glowing and happy, perhaps due to boyfriend Blake Shelton, who is People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2017. If that news didn’t come out as a shock, then we don’t know what would.
7 Eva Mendes
At 43 years old, Eva Mendes still has that allure that charms men of all ages. Her acting career has spanned almost two decades now, starting with ER in 1998. After landing her roles in the B-movies Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror and Urban Legends: Final Cut in 1998 and 2000, respectively, she finally got her breakout role in Training Day (2001). In the last 16 years, she’s starred in 2 Fast 2 Furious with the late Paul Walker, Hitch with Will Smith, Ghost Rider with Nicolas Cage and The Other Guys. Wife of Hollywood A-lister Ryan Gosling, Mendes has two daughters with the actor named Esmeralda Amada and Amada Lee. Wow, they don’t like the name Amada at all.
6 Isla Fisher
Next on the list is a gorgeous redhead who consistently ranks high on lists of the most beautiful redheaded celebrities. Most people have probably seen her first in Scooby-Doo where she portrayed Mary Jane, Shaggy’s love interest who’s allergic to dogs. She had to wear a blonde wig for her role as Daphne Blake, who was portrayed by Sarah Michelle Gellar, was supposed to be the only one to have red hair in the film. Isla Fisher later appeared in box office hits The Great Gatsby and Now You See Me. If you ever wondered why she didn’t reprise her role in Now You See Me 2, it’s all because she was pregnant for the third time! Who would’ve thought? Her latest project was Grimsby and she’s set to appear in the films Tag and The Beach Bum in 2018.
5 Olivia Wilde
For many of us, Olivia Wilde is the embodiment of the word “sexy.” Her gorgeous complexion and mesmerizing eyes make her very pleasing to look at, not to mention she has a very sexy frame and bone structure. Her acting career aside, Wilde is an activist and supports a wide variety of causes. She supports the Fair Foods campaign and the rights of the healthcare insurance industry, and she’s also been a part of a campaign that aims to raise awareness and funds for women’s issues. At the young age of 19, she married Italian filmmaker Tao Ruspoli in 2003, although they eventually divorced in 2011, with Wilde citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason. Two years later, she got engaged to actor Jason Sudeikis and the couple has two children together.
Another extremely talented singer, Shakira was one of the hottest female singers of the early 2000s. Seriously, was there anyone else who could sing impeccably while belly dancing at the same time? Her song “Whenever, Wherever” was one of the most successful singles of 2002, and her success didn’t end there. Her 2006 single “Hips Don’t Lie” is one of the best-selling songs of the 21st century, and her “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” became the best-selling World Cup song of all time. She’s a successful businesswoman as well, releasing at least 19 perfumes, lotions and body spray under her beauty line S by Shakira. But her biggest success in her eyes is probably being the mother of her two children with Spanish football player Gerard Piqué. How is this woman a mother with a rockin' body like that?
3 Adriana Lima
You don’t need to be a fan of the Victoria’s Secret Angels to know who Adriana Lima is. Victoria’s Secret’s longest-running model, Lima was named the “most valuable Victoria’s Secret Angel” in 2017. Her face is literally everywhere — there’s no wonder she’s been the world’s second highest-paid model since 2014. She has modelled for a very long list of designer brands and companies so if you don’t know who she is, you’ve probably been living under a rock. Fan or not, the fact that Lima is a mom may come as a surprise to many — we could barely remember that she’s already given birth twice! She has two daughters with Serbian NBA player Marko Jarić, whom she divorced in 2016. It’s really impressive that despite having two kids, she’s maintained her figure and her position as the second highest-paid model in the last few years.
2 Miranda Kerr
The second (former) Victoria’s Secret Angel on the list, Miranda Kerr was the first Australian model of the brand. Although mainly known for her modelling career, Kerr actually has her own brand of skincare products and has even written a self-help book. Talk about multi-talented. Although she may not be as wealthy as Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima, she still comes close. In 2016, she was the number 10 highest-paid model, taking home an estimated $6 million. Kerr isn’t only successful when it comes to her career, as she is actually also married to billionaire Snapchat co-founder/CEO Evan Spiegel and currently carrying his child. Before all this, she was married to (and later divorced) the Lord of the Rings actor Orlando Bloom, whom she has a son with.
1 Alessandra Ambrosio
Alessandra Ambrosio is our third Victoria’s Secret Angel on this list. If you hadn’t heard of her until now then you’ve been missing out. Ambrosio is a complete bombshell and is often cited as one of the world’s sexiest women. Although Ambrosio mostly works as a model, she’s also appeared on TV as herself on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Project Runway Season 2: Team Lingerie and The Tyra Banks Show. She has starred in a Brazilian telenovela as well. Engaged to businessman Jamie Mazur, Ambrosio has two children with him. If you’ve become an instant fan after seeing her photos, you should check out her Facebook page — she posts not only professional photos but also personal photos.
