Not all families look the same, and even though yours may not fit the traditional setup of a family, it doesn't take away from the quality of your relationship with each other. For instance, these celebrities have also stood as stepmothers and developed loving relationships with their stepkids. They are proof that you don't have to be related by blood to become family.
Here are 6 celebrities who are also stepmoms:
Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid has an ultra close relationship with stepdaughter Leila Alcasid, especially when she decided to move back to the Philippines. "Mas friendship yung naging beginning namin, although after a while, nagpa-parent na rin ako..." Regine explains in a vlog with Leila. Leila is also a loving half-sister to Nate, the son of Regine and Ogie Alcasid.
Aside from being a powerhouse performer and talk show host, Kelly Clarkson is also a mom to two kids with Brandon Blackstock. In marrying Brandon, Kelly also became a stepmom to his two children. The two have divorced in 2020, but Kelly still treats her two stepkids as if they were her own.
Sunshine Cruz and Teresa Loyzaga
Sunshine Cruz has always been so supportive of stepson Diego Loyzaga, and Diego's mom, Teresa Loyzaga, is the same with Sunshine's daughters Angelina, Sam, and Chesca. In fact, when Diego spent some quality sibling time with his half-sisters, Teresa and Sunshine both gushed over how wholesome their relationship was. "We must have done something good!" Teresa writes in an Instagram post, tagging Sunshine and her daughters. Diego is Teresa's son with ex-husband Cesar Montano while Angelina, Sam, and Chesca are Sunshine's children with Cesar.
Everybody loves Jada's children, Jaden and Willow, but what many may not know is that she has a "bonus son" in Trey Smith, Will Smith's son with ex-wife Sheree Zampino. On describing both his biological mom and stepmom, Trey shares in an Instagram post, "He sent not one but TWO ANGELS. For that I am forever grateful."
Heart has two stepkids with husband Chiz Escudero--twins Quino and Chesi. While it took time for her to adjust to being a mother figure to the twins who are now in their teenage years (She met them when they were just four years old!), Heart says that they've grown closer as a family over the years, especially during quarantine in 2020. For Mother's Day last year, Quino and Chesi even cooked lunch for Heart and wrote her heartwarming letters to thank her for being their mother figure at home.
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has two kids with husband Tom Brady--Benjamin and Vivian. But she also treats stepson Jack like he's her own! In a birthday greeting posted on Instagram, Gisele calls Jack the "best big brother" to her two kids.
