jennifer garnerYou'll never guess who was voted Celebrity Mom of 2012! It's ... oh, you guessed: Jennifer Garner. Got it on the first try, too! Probably because, well, of course Jennifer Garner got voted celeb mom of the year. The 40-year-old actress has 3 adorable kids (Violet, Seraphina and baby Samuel). Literally every photo ever snapped of the family show them doing something wholesome and fun and enriching that makes the whole lot of them smile their big, dimpled smiles and laugh and frolic and AWWWW. So, congrats to Garner on the prestigious award! And to her runner-up, Reese Witherspoon.

Seriously, I don't begrudge these ladies their good mom gold stars, but I do have to wonder ...

More from The Stir: Jennifer Garner Has a Message for Mean Moms

Why did two of Hollywood's most vanilla leading ladies get most of the votes? I mean, out of all the celeb moms out there, Garner and Witherspoon have got to be the two who would look most at home with an apron and a Betty Crocker cookbook circa 1952. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But there are plenty of less-traditional types who are most likely just as maternal. What about Angelina Jolie? Or Michelle Williams? Or Katie Holmes? You know, moms who've had some struggles but keep on keepin'on anyway. (Not that Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon haven't had any struggles, but, you get the idea.)

Do unconventional moms still make people uncomfortable?

Who would be your pick for Best Celebrity Mom of 2012?
