From Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, these celebrities have formed beautiful families.
What makes these units even worthier of a shout-out is the parents’ commitment to teaching their children that no matter where they go in life, they have strong roots. And that’s true regardless of whether the parents are still together. For example, Madonna, who has two biological children, adopted four more from the South African country Malawi and co-founded Raising Malawi, a charitable non-profit organization that fights poverty. Markle, who has long been a victim of racism, has spoken of her desire to make the world a better place for son Archie and daughter Lilibet whom she shares with Prince Harry. And divorced couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt co-parent three adopted children from Cambodia, Ethiopia, and Vietnam, plus three biological kids, all of whom are educated about their family’s unique cultures.
Meanwhile, Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, who is raising three children with husband Chris Ivory, has stated, “As moms and dads, we have the responsibility to expose our children to all different types of people; to just show them the differences in the world.” You said it, mama!
According to recent findings from the Pew Research Center, American families are changing in regard to diversity, size, and composition. And that’s really great news, considering there are many ways to make a family.
Read on for the famous families that are making the world a bigger and brighter place, and reminding us that love knows no bounds.
