10 Celebrities Who Practice Attachment Parenting (PHOTOS)

salma hayekIt's kind of ... odd, but fact is, if you're a celebrity mom, chances are the public knows about your parenting style. Some moms are extremely vocal about how they choose to parent their kids (Mayim Bialik, Alanis Morissette), while others you can just tell what parenting philosophies they subscribe to (Beyonce, Maggie Gyllenhaal). Here are 10 celebrity moms who are raising their kids the attachment parenting way. Some may not surprise you, but others will downright shock you.

  • Angelina Jolie

    Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are such fans of cosleeping that they actually had a custom bed built to fit their entire family. She famously told Vanity Fair in 2007 that at least once a week they do a "family sleep."

  • Pamela Anderson

    Does this one surprise you a bit? It surprised me. Apparently, Pam doesn't just believe in cosleeping, she breastfed both of her sons for at least a year, and she had both via home birth.

  • Salma Hayek

    Salma Hayek didn't just breastfeed her adorable daughter Valentina for over a year -- she breastfed another woman's baby. In 2009, Salma breastfed a hungry baby during a trip to the Sierra Leone.

    Oh, and she'd never let little Valentina cry it out.

  • Beyonce

    Maggie played an attachment parent in the movie Away We Go (she didn't want to "push her baby away" in a stroller, remember?), but in real life, she's not much different. Among other things, Maggie's opted to use organic cloth diapers for her girls.

  • Gisele Bundchen

    There's no word on how Gisele Bundchen delivered her daughter Vivian, but she famously had a water birth with son Benjamin. And it "wasn't painful."

  • Kourtney Kardashian

    Kourtney tweeted a photo of Doctor Sears' famous book, along with the caption: "Excited to read."

  • Claire Danes

    At the Golden Globes this year, Claire Danes admitted that she was afraid she was going to start leaking breast milk on the red carpet.

  • Gwen Stefani

    Gwen Stefani is a fan of cosleeping. She once said: "I don't want to look back and say, 'Oh my God, I didn't sleep with Zuma that time because I was too tired,' so I’ll just snuggle up with him tonight."

  • Hilary Duff

    Hilary Duff not only is a fan of breastfeeding, she sure loves holding her adorable son Luca. Go on, try to find a photo of him in a stroller!
