8 Celebrities Who Prove That Being Raised By A Single Mom Leads To An Unbreakable Bond

Parenting children is hard and single parents raising children is even harder. A study said that kids in single-mother-by-choice families can do just as well as those in 2-parent families.

Needless to say, fulfilling the role of both parents is always a big challenge. But it can also build a strong bond between mother and child. Many celebrities have been raised by a single mother, which is the best example of that. So hats off to the single mom and dads of these celebrities, who supported their kids and helped them chase their dream along the way. Some stars truly claim that they would have nothing without their single mom support from the early days.

We all admire those superhero single moms who have devoted their lives to their kids. And below are 8 celebs who have a deep bond with their single mom, inspiring that being independent and hard-working can be the most factor contributing to success.
