Kate Middleton is the epitome of grace and dignity, a quality which she seems to pass on to her children. She is a hands-on mother and despite all her duties, she puts her children first always.
Pink made headlines recently for her empowering speech said in tribute to her 6-year-old daughter, Willow, after sharing how Willow found herself ugly. In her acceptance speech for receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard she said,"androgynous rock stars and artists that live their truth, are probably made fun of every day of their life, and carry on and wave their flag and inspire the rest of us."
#8 Blake Lively
Blake Lively has always been a symbol of empowerment and confidence. She and her husband Ryan Reynolds have always tried to empower their children and make sure that they are open-minded and good people.

#7 Katie Holmes
When Katie Holmes appeared at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena for U2's The Joshua Tree Tour, California, her 11-year-old daughter, Suri was right by her side and even sang along to 'With or Without You'.

Despite her personal life being under the spotlight and her relationships under the scanner, Katie has made sure that Suri receive as normal a childhood as possible.
#6 Victoria Beckham
It is such a parent thing to do and Victoria Beckham was no exception when it came to shedding a tear or four when her eldest son Brooklyn went off to college.

Madonna proudly shared a post of her son David on his 12th birthday singing his mother's 1983 hit 'Holiday'. Madonna or Mambo to her kids, loves having her big brood around her.

She sends them weird snapchats of her doing old man voices and goofy teeth. And her children have acknowledged getting their weirdness from her.
