13 Celebrities Who Were Raised By Single Moms (PHOTOS)

All mothers deserve our thanks and recognition, but there's something about a single mom that makes some people want to stand up and cheer just a little bit louder. It's hard to be both mom and dad and bear the weight of responsibility for raising a child, but these parents of celebrities did just that and did it well. These celebrities are very successful, and perhaps that's in part to the role models they had as children. 


These 13 celebrities were raised by single moms from a young age. We're sure it was hard work at times, but each of their children have gone on to do big things with their lives, such as win Grammys, Oscars and more, so they should be crazy proud of themselves as well as their kids!
