We’re all spending way more time on social media these days during this, our spring of social isolation. Admit it: You’re probably frequenting platforms like Instagram and Facebook at an alarming rate — and a lot of the news is pretty dark. But then, in comes TikTok, the short video platform of funny and uplifting clips that has been dominated by teens — until now.
These days, celebrity children have opened their digital TikTok world to include their parents. These bonding moments really give fans an insider’s view of celebrity kid-parent relationships, and it’s pretty damn entertaining.
The first on the TikTok scene before quarantines took effect included Kourtney Kardashian and son Mason, Reese Witherspoon and son Deacon, Laura Dern and daughter Jaya, and Courteney Cox and daughter Coco. Up until now, their content mainly consisted of synchronized dance moves. But as of this week, celebs have even incorporated hand-washing tutorials to the tune of their favorite songs. Some celebrities are really getting creative, too.
Here, watch our favorite celebrity parents social distancing — away from everyone but their kids.
Ciara and her family dance to “Something New”
Ciara, her husband Russell Wilson, Wilson’s younger sister Anna, and kids Sienna Princess Wilson and Future Zahir Wilburn, form a dancing line as they each take turns in the spotlight. In their bathrobes and jammies, they show off their own moves to “Something New” ft. Ty Dolla $ign by Wiz Khalifa.
Allison Holker and family bust a move
As a professional dancer and mother of three, Holker showcases her energetic moves (in the comfort of her living room, of course) alongside her 11-year-old daughter, Weslie Renae Fowler. In this clip, the mother-daughter pair join father Stephen Boss — who’s a professional hip hop dancer — and get down to “Why Is Everything Chrome.” It’s no wonder Holker has close to 1 million followers: They’re all pros! There’s no doubt her 4-month-old will dance before she can walk.

Giada De Laurentiis and daughter are “beating boredom”
Giada’s 11-year-old daughter Jade De Laurentiis Thompson dances to “Supalonely” as her mom and what appears to be a friend exercise in the background. The caption “Beating Boredom” accurately describes how they’re choosing to social distance.
Jessica Alba and her daughters are taking a “PJs all day” approach
Alba’s TikTok account name is appropriately called “Yo Mama.” In this clip, she and daughters Honor Marie Warren and Haven Garner Warren dance in sync to “Over It Chinese New Year Remix.” This is the sixth TikTok that she’s posted with her kids in the last few days. In each one of them, Alba wears burgundy silk monogrammed jammies. Hoorah for PJs all day every day.

Mariah Carey and her kids celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at home
It’s hard to top the TikTok Mariah posted of her kids washing their hands to one of her songs. But, this one of kids Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon doing “flip the switch” is still super adorable. “Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everybody!! Stay home & stay safe!!” she captioned the clip. By the end of it, they’re all wearing green costumes as Mariah gets glammed up.
