These celebrity couples may have become parents, but that doesn’t mean they’ve become any less awesome. Here our top 5 coolest celebrity couples with kids:
1. Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard
Nothing’s cooler than parents who care. Kristen and Dax recently appeared on “Access Hollywood” to petition their “No Kids Policy,” a social media movement to stop the paparazzi from photographing the children of celebrities without permission.
Many argue celebrities choose to be in the public eye, but Bell stated, “When it comes to my kid, I become a mama bear and I’ve realized she didn’t choose any of this.”
The doting couple welcomed their daughter Lincoln last March, and upon leaving the hospital, they were notified that private information pertaining to their child had already leaked to the media.
Their pleas are really starting to gain support in Hollywood as media outlets “People Magazine,” “Entertainment Weekly,” and Entertainment Tonight are all on board.
2. Beyonce & Jay Z
Shutting down an entire theme park for your child’s birthday is ultra-cool. According to TMZ, Beyonce and Jay Z shut down Jungle Island, a wildlife and botanical garden in Miami, to celebrate Blue Ivy’s 2nd birthday this past January.
Blue Ivy will likely not even remember the grand event, but her super hip parents probably documented the whole day.
Park management would not confirm what closing down the entire park costs, but let’s just say private time with parrots, monkeys, and kangaroos would run you a pretty penny. Of course, money is no object when it comes to their precious daughter.
Not unlike Kristen and Dax, these two are also pretty protective over their daughter as well. Bey especially has posted just a few photos of Blue Ivy, none of which show off her face, just in case she chooses not to be a public figure.
3. Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt
I don’t know how this Hollywood powerhouse couple does it -- both are megastars raising six children! How do they find enough time?
Jolie declared their secret in the past, saying, "I have a wonderful partner in Brad and we take turns working always. So I was with the kids when he shot “Moneyball,” and when he finished he took a few months off while I was shooting [“In the Land of Blood and Honey”]."
This past December, the couple took the whole brood to the Currumbin Wildlife Park in Queensland, Australia, where they spent quality time together for the holidays.
An insider told “US Weekly,” that the family is “used to celebrating wherever they're working.” Not only are they a tight-knit and loving family, but they adapt to situations and enjoy each other’s company no matter where they are on the globe!
4. Fergie & Josh Duhamel
You know you are a cool couple when you name your child after a ‘90s rock god. Fergie and Josh Duhamel welcomed their son Axl into this world last fall.
The proud parents are definitely not shy about sharing their little bundle of joy’s pictures on social media either. With such an adorably baby boy, they have no reason not to brag!
The couple has been very active already in Axl’s education, even teaching him vocabulary words at such a tender age. In an interview Fergie gave this year, she said, “I’m just listening, talking back with him and trying to teach him words like ‘nose’ and ‘dancing,’ Daddy is trying to teach him ‘ball’ and I’m trying to teach him ‘dance.’”
It’s never too early to start on your child’s education, so this is just another reason this couple rocks!
5. Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck
These proud parents have long planned their work schedules around the needs of their three children.
For now, they will be spending some time in Detroit while Affleck films the new Batman Vs. Superman flick in Detroit. It’s cool that two A-list celebrities can make a marriage work in Hollywood and be so involved in their kid’s lives.
They have also gotten on board with the aforementioned “No Kids Policy” crusading against paparazzi harassing children.
What’s more, Jen recently filmed a PSA with Beyonce seeking to ban the word “Bossy” so young girls will be encouraged to take on leadership roles.
In an industry so driven by egos, it is so refreshing to see that these celebrity couples put their children first.
