Raising children can be pretty exhausting, even though it is awesome. Taking care of kids is pretty hard for the average person, so it is difficult to imagine how difficult it must be for famous men and women to care for their children and maintain their hectic work schedules.
For instance, a lot of the actors and actresses we all know and love have had multiple nannies. In fact, some of them have even dated their nannies, which ultimately causes a lot of drama most of the time. But there are some famous moms out there who don’t use nannies.

It can be hard to find many celebrities who take on all of the responsibilities of parenthood without the help of nannies or personal chefs, but actress Jenna Fischer seems to be pulling it off just fine. The star has had to figure out how to balance everything without additional help.
Fischer is a pretty relatable mom. In addition, she has also addressed the fact that it seems as though famous mothers need to look a certain way as soon as the baby is born. Fischer is a lot like moms everywhere, and she is pretty proud of it, too.
9 Rebecca Romijn
While Hollywood seems to be full of people who hire others to help them raise their children, not every movie star or model is getting extra help with their children. In fact, actress and former model Rebecca Romijn is one of them.
She and her husband, actor Jerry O’Connell, take on the responsibilities of parenting together, and they both help each other out. The pair seem to be very good at balancing things out. In the past, Romijn has claimed that when one of them is not as busy as the other one, that person helps the other one out.
8 Blake Lively
Everyone can pretty much agree that actor Ryan Reynolds and his wife, actress Blake Lively, are basically on top of the world right now. They both have amazing careers, they have a seemingly healthy marriage, and they share a couple of really cute kids.
They don’t have a nanny, but their kids do spend a lot of time with Lively’s parents when the actress is busy shooting a movie. The star has claimed that she does get a lot of help from her parents, who actually raised five children on their own. Lively said her parents are make pretty good nannies.
7 Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon was once married to actor Ryan Phillipe. Though the couple did not stay married for very long, they do share two children together. Reese also has another child with her second husband.
Witherspoon is incredibly busy, but that doesn’t mean that she is too busy for her children. Phillipe has claimed that they feel things would have been much more difficult if they had hired nannies, instead of being easier. The actor said that he is proud of himself and Witherspoon for choosing not to go with a nanny. Witherspoon doesn’t use a nanny for the youngest child, either.
6 Elle Macpherson
Model Elle Macpherson might have a lot of fans around the world, but sometimes that crowd does not include her children. That is because the mother is actually very strict and organized, which is not always the case for celebrity moms.
This mother has claimed that the reason she and her family are very organized is that she is a mom who does not get help from a nanny. She also has some strict rules on how much they all spend on certain items, and her children are not allowed to use any of their electronic belongings during the week.
5 Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes has a very chaotic schedule. But on the other hand, she has no issues juggling her career and motherhood.
The star is never too busy to take a moment and care for her children Esmeralda and Amada Gosling, whom she shares with actor Ryan Gosling. Mendes is one of the few busy moms in Hollywood who manages to juggle work and parenting without seeking the help of a nanny. Also, her beauty regimen stayed strict even after she had kids. The mom said she usually focuses more on making her eyes look better since she is sleep deprived.
4 Jennifer Love Hewitt
Most celebrity parents often have a lot of people that help them out with various things, but that is not the case for actress Jennifer Love Hewitt. The actress claimed that she has never used any professional help when it comes to her children, and things have been pretty interesting for her because of it.
In addition, having children has really showed Hewitt what the important things in life are. The actress said having children makes a person realize that other parts of life aren’t as important as they once seemed to be. Hewitt is the mother of two kids.
3 Camila Alves
Camila Alves may be a rich and famous model who is married to an equally rich and famous actor (Matthew McConaughey), but she is actually really relatable when it comes to how she raises their children. Alves and her kids spend a lot of time with her mother, and she also has some great organizational skills, which seems to be very helpful.
But things were not always that way. The model said that being a mother has helped her learn how to be organized. The famous mother does not believe that there is any other way to balance everything out.
2 Mila Kunis
There’s nothing wrong with hiring a nanny. Sometimes it’s impossible to juggle parenthood and work, so it’s easy to see why someone would hire one.
But parents who do that also tend to miss a lot of moments with their children, and that is why actress Mila Kunis and her husband, actor Ashton Kutcher, decided that they did not want to hire one. Kutcher claimed that they want to know their children, so hiring a nanny was not exactly something they seriously considered. These parents want to know what’s up when their kids make certain faces, or when they’re upset.
1 Kimberly Williams-Paisley
When it comes to taking care of children, grandmas are pretty awesome. This is where actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley and her husband, country singer Brad Paisley, come in.
While they don’t have any nannies helping them out, they do have the help of both of their mothers. But Brad spends a lot of time on the road, so that means Kimberly is usually on her own with their children, whose names are William and Jasper Paisley. The fact that they do not want any nannies to help them raise their kids isn’t much of a surprise. They are a humble couple.
