Celebs—they’re just like us. They take their kiddos to preschool, they grow precious little baby bumps and they dress their littles in clothes that cost more than some cars. Okay, so they’re not exactly like us. And maybe that’s why we can’t help but be obsessed with them sometimes.

When it comes to parenting in 2018, these superstar celebrities gave us social media sweetness, parenting hacks, funny stories and so much more!

Kristen Dunst's Sneaky Pregnancy Announcement

Kristen Bell's Super-Relatable Instagrams

We've all had our very own mommy moments. And Kristen Bell's Instagrams show that she's had hers too. When the actress posted a closeup of herself covered with Trader Joe's stickers (mid-shop), we all totally got it.

Serena Williams Paves the Way for Athlete Moms

Athlete. Mom. Inspiration. Serena Williams lost her No. 1 seeding for the French Open—penalized for taking maternity leave.  By the time the U.S. Open rolled around, changes were made so that mom athletes would no longer be penalized for taking much-needed maternity leave. Even though Williams ultimately couldn't compete in the tennis tournament due to an injury, it was a huge moment for women in sports.

Justin Timberlake Definitely Won't Be Coaching His Son's Football Team

With the Super Bowl on the horizon, one superstar said his son would never play football. Yep,  Justin Timberlake's son Silas won't hit the field—that is, if dad has anything to do with it. The whole incident garnered particular attention, given that Timberlake was the Super Bowl Halftime Show's musical act last February. #Awkward.
