Celebrity moms including BFF’s Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps, Kate Hudson and Shakira celebrated New Year’s Eve in some seriously cool vacation spots — and had the snapshots on social media to prove it. Gorgeous mother-daughter duo Christie Brinkley and Alexa Ray Joel posted a swimsuit selfie while on their tropical vacation. Alyssa Milano’s sweet family photo with her daughter Elizabella rounds out our roundup of the most buzz-worthy celebrity moms on social media this week.
Christie Brinkley posted this cute snapshot as she and her daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, celebrate Joel’s 29th birthday in Turks and Caicos.
“Having fun in the sun with our birthday girl Alexa Ray,” the 60-year-old supermodel captioned the photo.
Alexa Ray is Brinkley’s daughter with ex-husband Billy Joel, while Brinkley has two more children, Sailor and Jack, with her husband Peter Cook.
Brinkley posted this group shot from her “Motley Gang” with Alexa Ray and her boyfriend (in the white T-shirt), along with daughter Sailor (standing next to Brinkley) and her shirtless son Jack.
Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps
Celebrity moms Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps celebrated New Year’s Eve together in the Maldives, which also happens to be Prince William and Kate Middleton’s favorite vacation spot.
Philipps posted this snapshot of the two actresses, who starred together in the WB sitcom Dawson’s Creek, with the caption, “BFFs. I love vacation. #maldives #2017 #tequila.”
We’re not sure why she wrote 2017 in the caption — unless the tequila kicked in and she meant to write 2015. Either way, the girls appear to be having fun.
No word if their kids were along for the vacation. Williams has an 8-year-old daughter named Matilda with the late Heath Ledger, while Philipps has two daughters, Birdie Leigh and Cricket Pearl. In case you missed it, you must check out Philipp’s hilarious Elf on the Shelf pictures which she posted throughout the month of December.
Actress Alyssa Milano shared this sweet family snapshot with her husband, agent David Bugliari, their son Milo and their 3-month-old daughter, Elizabella.
“Wishing you all the health and happiness you can bear in 2015. Happy New Year!” the Mistresses star captioned the photo.
This is the first family snapshot that Milano has shared since her daughter was born in September, however, the 41-year-old actress has joined a growing list of celebrity moms that have shared breastfeeding selfies on social media.
Kate Hudson spent the holidays with her family in Aspen and had some fun making some prank calls — to Justin Timberlake. That’s right, they tried to FaceTime the superstar dad-to-be and they got denied. The actress and mom of two shared a giggling photo as she sat with some girlfriends and her brother, Nashville star Oliver Hudson.
“This is what it looks like when you Face Time random names on your brothers phone… @justintimberlake denied our call… #ChristmasColdCalls,” she captioned the photo.
Pregnant Shakira celebrated the arrival of 2015 with some “extreme sports” — or, in her case, sledding slowly down the hill. The pregnant singer shared this sweet video in which she sleds down the hill as her boyfriend, Gerard Piqué, and her son Milan look on. At the end of the video, Milan runs over and gives his mom a huge kiss. Adorable.
Shakira and Piqué are expecting their second child, a baby boy, within the next few months.
