Happy Mothers Day!- Celebrity mothers and their famous offspring

Well I thought considering it has just been Mothers Day I would do a bit of a special blog post about some famous mums and their famous children. Before I get into that I just want to do a very special shout out to my own mum, Maureen Ravia! Even though we argue from time to time you are always there for all of us so thanks for all that you do!

What can I say? There are quite a few famous mother/children teams in Tinseltown so I picked ten of them to include in this special feature. Just a warning this blog post is very photo heavy.

Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson. Photo from: Sheila H.Miller's Pinterest account
   Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson could possibly be the hottest mother/daughter team in Hollywood with their blonde hair, blue eyes and infectious smiles. They are both equally talented actresses. As the old saying goes "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree". The tree (aka Goldie Hawn) is still gorgeous, even at 68!

Jada Pinkett-Smith, Willow Smith and Jaden Smith. Photo from: Paul Herbert's Flickr photo stream
    She may be more famous for being married to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star and rapper, Will Smith but Jada Pinkett-Smith is also a celebrity in her own right, having starred in numerous films including, Scream 2, The Nutty Professor, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions and all of the Madagascar films. Last but definitely not least she is the mother of Jaden and Willow Smith, both of whom are making names for themselves in Hollywood. Needless to say, Willow and Jaden Smith are following in their parents footsteps as they have already had many successful songs and movies. I'm sure neither of these two could be doing what they do without the love and support of their mother. Thumbs up to Jada!

Joan Rivers and Melissa Rivers. Photo from: Deborah Ann's Pinterest account
     America's favourite funny woman, Joan Rivers is the mother of actress, Melissa Rivers. They currently star together in their own reality television show, Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best. Melissa is a mother herself to a 13-year-old son, Edgar Endicot.

Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian. Photo from: Campari America's Flickr photo stream
  I'm pretty sure that this mother/daughter duo need no introduction, right? Unless you're living under a rock (and even then I think there's nowhere to hide from this family, unfortunately!) you've heard of the attention-loving Kim Kardashian and her equally attention-loving mummy, Kris Jenner, that being said though it seems that Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian always seem to have each others back with whatever ups and downs they may go through so we'll give them snaps for that!

Miley Cyrus and Tish Cyrus. Photo from: CakeChooser
Long before Miley Cyrus rose to fame as Hannah Montana we knew her as the daughter of country singer, Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus. Tish must have had her hands full with Miley and all her siblings when they were growing up (I'm thinking she must be something like a superwoman!). Even though her daughter is now a superstar Tish and Miley still remain very close. Way to go Tish!

Nicky Hilton, Kathy Hilton and Paris Hilton. Photo from: fanpop!
This is another Hollywood family that we all know. Kathy Hilton is of course married to Hilton hotel heir, Richard Hilton. Her daughters, Paris and Nicky Hilton have obviously become very famous as well. Nicky has her clothing and handbag lines and well, Paris is famous for being...uh, Paris! She is pretty good at it too.

Paula Yates and Peaches Geldof. Photo from: Lucy Munns Pinterest account
  Unfortunately, neither one of this mother/daughter pair is with us anymore. Paula Yates was a famous music journalist and was married to British musician, Bob Geldof. Yates and Geldof had three daughters together, Fifi Trixibelle Geldof, Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof and Little Pixie Geldof. Paula Yates died of a heroin overdose in 2000 and recently her daughter, Peaches Geldof met the same fate. They were both gone way before their time. Peaches was a mother herself to two little boys. Here's to those loving mothers who are no longer with us as well!

Riley Keough, Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley. Photo from: Riley Keough's Tumblr
If you thought a mother/daughter Hollywood duo wasn't enough, don't worry there's actually a trio! Just in case you didn't know, Priscilla Presley was married to the king of rock 'n' roll, Elvis Presley. She was an actress back in the 80s and 90s, appearing in the whole Naked Gun film franchise. Of course Priscilla is the mother of the beautiful and talented singer, Lisa Marie Presley. Lisa has certainly carved a place for herself in the music industry, aside from her famous father, both in the USA and abroad. Lisa Marie is a mother to four children herself. She has three daughters, Riley, Finley and Harper and one son Benjamin. Riley is a successful model and actress, having been the face of the Bonds underwear label in Australia for 2013. She has also been in films including, Magic Mike and Mad Max: Fury Road. Three successful women all in one family! Nice work ladies!

Kelly Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne. Photo from: Sharon Osbourne's Facebook page
   Sharon Osbourne is the wife of Black Sabbath frontman, Ozzy Osbourne. She first shot to real fame after starring alongside her family in the reality television show, The Osbournes. She is currently a presenter on US chat show, The Talk. Naturally, Kelly Osbourne is the daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. She has recorded many hit songs including, Papa Don't Preach and she has been a panelist on E!'s Fashion Police since 2010. Kelly is a very confident and strong woman. No doubt she gets those qualities from Mama Osbourne! 

Candy Spelling and Tori Spelling. Photo from: Candy Spelling's Facebook page
 Candy Spelling was married to successful television producer, Aaron Spelling. Tori Spelling is of course their daughter. Tori Spelling first shot to fame in the 90s starring in her father's highly successful teen drama, Beverly Hills 90210 as Donna Martin. Candy and Tori may not always see eye to eye, with their reported feuds but at the end of the day it seems they both know that family is very important and it seems that Candy enjoys doting on Tori's children.

So there you have it! A special Mothers Day blog post on celebrity mothers and their famous kids. I hope all the mothers out there had a very happy and enjoyable day! My sister and I bought my mother a gift voucher to get a manicure and a pedicure. We also took her out for lunch so I think she had a fun day. How did you guys celebrate Mothers Day and what did you get your mums? Anyway, I hope you've enjoyed reading this even though it's a bit long and as always feel free to comment, discuss etc.
