18 Celebs Who Are The Most Supportive And Dedicated Stepparents

We all agree that being parents is hard, which means becoming stepparents is much harder. Stepparents might face many challenges. They need to recover their wounds from the past while settling down with a new family. Certainly, everyone considers it to be one of the harsh periods in their life. And celebrities are no exception. Some celebrity marriages all ended in divorce. Later, they move on to tie the knot with another person whose family also broke up.

No matter how these celebrities face blended family issues, they have shown us that they can overcome all the difficulties and become dedicated stepparents. From Russell Wilson to Barbra Streisand, these stepdads and stepmoms are now happy with their new partners and stepchildren.

Below are 18 celebrities who have been known as supportive and devoted stepparents. Let’s check them out!

“It’s a blessing to be able to have [the kids] altogether, and to have a wife who’s open and treats them as if they’re her kids,” Offset said of their family unit. “It could be an issue, but I don’t have to go through that, and that’s beautiful.”

“He’s a good stepdad,” Domino told Us Weekly of Penn in 2019. “He doesn’t have to be ‘dad’ so he can have more fun with him. It’s nice. The stepparent thing is uncharted territory for me ’cause I didn’t grow up with one, but … he takes care of him well.”

#5 Jada Pinkett Smith

Will Smith and Jada Smith have two talented children, Jaden and Willow. In addition, Jada is a stepmom to Trey- Will’s son from his first marriage.

“When I married Will, I knew Trey was part of the package. Period!” Jada wrote. “If I didn’t want that, I needed to marry someone else. Then I learned if I’m going to love Trey, I had to learn to love the most important person in the world to him — his mother.”

The Girls Trip star also claimed the importance of understanding children from the previous relationships in their lives. 

“I can’t support any actions that keep a man from his children of a previous marriage,” Jada wrote. “These are the situations that separate the women from the girls. … We can’t say we love our man and then come in between him and his children. THAT’S selfishness — not love.”

#6 Ashton Kutcher

When Ashton started dating and got married to Demi Moore, he became a stepfather to Rumer, Tallulah, and Scout, Demi’s children from her previous marriage to Bruce Willis. Though he and Demi split up in 2011, Ashton has explained that his love for his stepdaughters is ongoing.

“I was helping raise teenage girls through their adolescence. I love them,” Ashton told Marc Maron’s WTF podcast in 2020. “I’m never going to stop loving them and respecting them and honoring them and rooting for them to be successful in whatever they are pursuing.”

“But I also have a blast with it, I’m not gonna lie,” he added. “I don’t take it so seriously that I’m not enjoying this time because I am, especially now that we’re five years into this thing … I can’t imagine my life without these kids now.”

Entertainment. “What I realized very quickly is you will never, ever, I don’t care if the other parent is dead, you will never be able to replace the other parent. Don’t try to replace the other parent. That is not your job. Your job is to be consistent. If you’re a disciplinarian in your own life, continue to be that. Just be consistent so they know who you are… and kids adapt.”
