Celeb parents were out in force at the Women’s Marches

Check out these A-listers who marched for (and with!) their kids

We seriously cannot get enough of all the photos and tweets from celebs who turned out in spades for Women’s Marches all over the world — especially the A-listers who marched with (and for!) their kids. Melt our cold, cynical hearts, why doncha?

Since it’s award season, we're declaring some winners of the best celebrity family moments from the Marches.

The winner of our coveted #PregnancyGoals award? Amber Tamblyn, hands down. Tamblyn, who’s mighty pregnant, hit two Women’s Marches — Washington, D.C., and New York City. (Girlfriend, when we were that pregnant, we were lucky if we got to the mailbox every other day.)

Tamblyn was spotted with various pals at the protests, such as Amy Schumer and America Ferrera in D.C., and Blake Lively in NYC. Tamblyn was passionate about why she was marching, telling Cosmopolitan on Inauguration Day that “the most dangerous thing” is to “be complacent.”

Mad props, Amber Tamblyn. Please tell us you put your feet up for the rest of the weekend.

Cutest Celebrity Kid at the March? We’re not throwing away our shot (heh, see what we did there) to give a shoutout to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s redonkulously adorable son, Sebastian. Miranda — of Hamilton and In the Heights fame — took to Twitter during and after the Women’s March in London, which he attended with his wife, Vanessa, and Sebastian. Miranda caught Sebastian on video saying, “Good morning, Womens” and posted it to Twitter. And whoops, our ovaries exploded.

Our Don’t Mess with Mama Bear Award goes to Scarlett Johansson, who wasn’t shy about addressing the president from the podium at the D.C. march: “I did not vote for you... I want to be able to support you. But first I ask that you support me, support my sister, support my mother."

Johansson also spoke candidly about visiting Planned Parenthood for the first time when she was 15 years old, saying the organization "provided a safe place where I could be treated with gentle guidance.”

Johansson didn’t mince words when addressing Trump about her little girl: “Support my daughter, who may actually — as a result of the appointments you have made — grow up in a country that is moving backwards, not forwards, and who potentially may not have the right to make choices for her body and her future that your daughter has been privileged to have.”

Slay, Scarlett.

Most Badass Feminist Celebrity Family goes to Pink and Carey Hart, who touched down at the Los Angeles Women’s March with 5-year-old daughter Willow and brand-new son Jameson (snuggled close to Pink in a sling).

"We march together," Pink captioned an Instagram pic of Willow and herself holding homemade signs. YEAH YOU DO. And we're definitely not getting in your way.

Hart also posted on Instagram — a photo of Pink cradling Jameson at the protest, as well as another of Willow perched on his shoulders. Hart said: “Very proud of my wife, and it was really special to march in the streets with my family today…I think it's embarrassing that government has a say in what my wife or my adult daughter does with their body. I'm a big believer in staying in your lane. Don't like what I'd do or say? Don't pay attention. It isn't your business. So how about government stay out of women's business?” 

Carey Hart, we had no idea you were a rock star too. Serious props.

It’s a tie for Coolest Exes Marching Together: Both Padma Lakshmi and Drew Barrymore marched with their exes (and baby daddies) and their kids.

Top Chef’s Lakshmi marched in Washington, D.C., with ex Adam Dell and their daughter, Krishna, almost 7.

There’s definite talk that Lakshmi and Dell have reunited, and their joint March appearance likely won’t slow the roll of the rumor mill. Lakshmi posted a pic of Dell (with whom she shares custody) and Krishna to her Instagram feed. Krishna sits on her father’s shoulders with a sign that reads, “My girl’s rights are human rights.” The caption from Lakshmi: “Alone we can do so little: together we can do so much.” YOU GUYS. Let’s all hug it out.

And in New York City, Drew Barrymore and her ex Will Kopelman marched with daughters Olive, 4, and Frankie, 2.

“Proud of my daughter and her dad,” Barrymore captioned a shot of Kopelman with Olive on his shoulders. (What is with all the evolved celebrity splits? Color us impressed.)

Barrymore also captioned a pic from the NYC March: “I love women. I live for my two daughters. And I am full of pride and unity with all women today.” 

One last award: Barrymore’s daughter Olive wins Best Sign. Covered in Disney stickers, it read “I like unicorns and reproductive health care for all.” You go, Olive. We like you... and we get the feeling you're definitely taking after your mom.
