Celebrity Moms Who Are Best Friends in Real Life

Let’s be real: Mom’ing is hard, y’all. And like all the other mamas out there, celebrity moms know that having friends along for the journey makes motherhood way more fun ⁠— not to mention possible to get through without losing your marbles. Sure, you see celebrity moms onscreen all the time. From shows like Workin’ Moms to movies like The Single Moms Club (and those are just two of many, many examples), programming that focuses on the motherhood experience abounds. The stories we don’t get to see quite so prominently are those of Hollywood’s real-life mom friends.

Of course, that doesn’t make them any less important or entertaining. Jessica Biel and Jennifer Garner bonded on the set of 2010’s Valentine’s Day. At the time, Garner was already Mom to daughters Violet and Seraphina and would go on to welcome son Samuel in 2012. So, you can imagine the pearls of parenting wisdom Garner passed along to Biel by the time she gave birth to son Silas in 2015. 

Another adorable mom-friend duo? Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon. In 2018, Kaling confessed that Witherspoon actually gave her the best piece of parenting advice she’d received. “Over text message, Reese talked me through how to carry an infant car seat on the airplane. We’re doing so much international travel, and she was giving me really practical advice on how to carry a screaming baby on the plane,” Kaling told People, calling the advice “the most useful!”

Trust, there are tons more stories like that where Tinseltown mamas are concerned. Here are a few of our favorite celebrity mom BFFs.
