Hollywood’s Coolest Celeb Parents Including Travis Barker, Kim Kardashain, & More!

National Parent Day is July 24, and these Hollywood stars happen to be just as cool behind the scenes as they are on the red carpet!

Forget Nepotism babies, these celeb parents are the real stars of the show! Today we’re honoring parents like Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann, Blake Lively, and Ryan Reynolds for National Parent Day.

Iman Shumpert & Teyana Taylor

Iman and Teyana are as cool as they come. Iman is an NBA star who raps and even won the latest season of Dancing with the Stars. While Teyana, on the other hand, is a musician, director, actress, model, and dancer who is headed on tour soon for her latest album. Talk about a power couple. They are so unapologetically themselves and are raising their girls the same way and on top of all that, their style is everything. These two value creativity and confidence so it’s no doubt they’ll be raising two strong Black girls who believe in themselves. You can watch them exclusively on Peacock in their reality show, We Got Love.

Ilana Glazer

Imagine your mom being as naturally creative and hilarious as Ilana is. The Broad City creator, writer, and star recently had her first child and seems like the most amazing mother. She is so naturally nurturing and tries her hardest to keep her baby out of the limelight; by covering their face as much as she can. Just see how cool she looks here.

Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann

Judd and Leslie are HILARIOUS and so are their children, Maude and Iris Apatow. These two are so cool, by constantly just being their authentic, fun-loving, genuine selves. They seem so sweet and down-to-earth in every interview they do. I mean, they watched Euphoria to see Maude as Lexi and said they LOVED it. As parents who are producers and actors, they seem so open-minded and just, simply supportive of any project their children do. What more could you possibly ask for from them?

Kim Kardashian

Kim K is who comes to mind most of the time when people think of a MILF and rightfully so. However, don’t let that fool you, she is so much more than that. She has shown time and time again that she can take on anything thrown her way; the A-lister has recently passed the “baby bar” exam, also known as the first-year law examination that is required for California students. Not only does Kim have beauty and brains, but she also has some of the flyest style out there. Self-expression is so important to her so it’s no surprise that her kids dress just as cool.

Snoop Dogg

Snoop is a cool father, but he’s an even cooler grandpa. This man is a legend as a rapper, actor, and even media personality. His iconic ‘fits typically consist of an oversized tracksuit, top-tier sneakers, and gold chains. His family has grown so much in the last few years, just check out how happy he looks with 3 generations of his fam in this photo.

Everyone considers P!nk a cool mom! Her children have witnessed her be on Billboard top hits and even joined her on magazine covers and tours. However, as a mom, especially a famous one at that, she continues to teach her children the importance of donating and giving back to those around the world. P!nk is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador which has rubbed off on her daughter Willow as they have raised money for Haiti and no-kill animal shelters in the past.

Travis Barker

Imagine Travis Barker being your dad. He is arguably one of the coolest dads in America with his rocker style and the most badass tattoos to go with it. The Blink-182 drummer seems like the chillest dad ever because he encourages his children to express themselves however they please. From the clips we’ve seen of them on Hulu’s The Kardashians, it seems like Barker treats his kids more as friends now that they’re older which has created a strong bond full of trust, communication, and mutual respect. We love to see it.

Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds

Who isn’t obsessed with these two?! They are best friends with the best sense of humor full of so much sarcasm and wit. Even their Instagram posts about one another are hilarious. Although the adorable couple are some of Hollywood’s biggest A-list actors, they are determined to keep their children out of the limelight for as long as they can. Aside from acting, Blake is constantly fighting to end the sexual exploitation of children as well. Admirable is an understatement.

Lisa Rinna

Lisa is the epitome of, “I’m not like a regular mom, I’m a cool mom”. Her dance videos on Instagram showcase all of her smooth moves, and her one-liner deliveries on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills hit every. single. time. Her relationship with her two girls, Delilah and Amelia are extremely tight-knit, so much so that they have begun working together more often for their modeling shoots.

Adam Sandler

Some would say Adam Sandler is the “dad” of Hollywood for his ‘fits alone. With his oversized basketball shorts and tees, it’s refreshing to see someone from Hollywood as “normal” as himself. He has two daughters and is known for his role in movies either as the lead or as the producer, and sometimes both! Adam definitely has every dad joke on deck and is ready to go for every scenario imaginable and we love him for that.
