Most people can’t figure out why some of the celebrity women decided to be single and they are very beautiful to be married or find a partner.
Here are some of the stories of single celebrity moms
Reality star Amanda Stanton may have gotten her fairytale ending when Josh Murray dropped to one knee and proposed on the season finale of Bachelor in Paradise, but life has certainly not been all, um, roses, for the single mom-of-two. The 26-year-old recently opened up about her struggles in an honest and revealing blog post. “I felt guilty and blamed myself for not giving my kids the life I had always dreamed of giving them,” she wrote. “I felt so much guilt that they were growing up with not only parents who weren’t together, but parents who couldn’t get along, not even for their sake.” But once Amanda realized all the things she was stressing were out of her control, she resolved to change course. ”I decided instead of being embarrassed of my failed marriage and ashamed of being a single mother, I was going to OWN it,” she wrote. “Being the best mother you can be and giving your kids the BEST life possible has nothing to do with your relationship status and you don’t have to be happily married to have a ‘picture-perfect family.’” Amen!

The actress split with husband Roberto Zincone in 2013, when their son Sebastian was just 7 months old. Divorce after six years of marriage was jarring, Akerman told People, but, “There is a beautiful thing about relationships where you grow each other to a point where you can’t grow each other any more.” Ever the optimist, Akerman adds, “You can’t control life. I roll with the punches. And ultimately, it’s like, ‘Where is the opportunity in this?’ And that’s been a nice way to look at it. Like, oh my God, I get to have so much special time with my son now.”

The singer-songwriter was vocal about her struggles with fertility before giving birth to son Kase in 2011, with then-husband and rodeo cowboy Ty Murray. The pair quietly married in 2008, after a decade together, but divorced in 2014. Jewel announced the split on her blog, saying: “Due to the spirit in which we have gone about this separation, we trust we can remain dear friends who hold each other in high esteem, which is so important to us as parents – we wish only what is best for our son.” Murray has echoed that Kase is top priority for the pair, and the three have remained close despite the divorce, with Jewel often sharing photos of her “two favorite cowboys”on social media. “Whatever makes Kase win is great for us,” Jewel told Yahoo, of her relationship with Murray. “We’re very aware that having a divorce doesn’t get you out of a relationship, so we’re very dedicated to being great parents and doing what’s best for him.”

Bullock, America’s sweetheart and an Academy Award-winning actress, may have been blindsided when her marriage to Jesse James—and her role as stepmom to his three kids—ended, but heartache didn’t stop her from opening her heart. The Gravityleading lady adopted Louis Bardo, a baby boy from New Orleans, proving the greatest love of all is that a mother has for her child. Then, in 2015, Bullock adopted 3-year-old Laila from the foster care system. “When I look at Laila, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was supposed to be here,” Bullock said at the time, adding: “My family is blended and diverse, nutty, and loving and understanding. That’s a family.”

Williams met and fell in love with her daughter’s daddy, Heath Ledger, on the set of Brokeback Mountain. Things took a sad turn when the Australian actor passed away in 2008, leaving Williams a single mom to Matilda Rose. With grace and love, Williams and her mini-me blond daughter have carved out a new life for themselves and are often spotted around their Brooklyn hood blending in with all of the other modern families. The down-to-earth single mom even admits to feeling the burnout, telling Elle UK, “It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I’m trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities. So that leaves me feeling pretty exhausted.”
