Celebrity Blended Families Who've Made It Work in Hollywood
The more the merrier! These Hollywood families have come out stronger as they've come together
Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock
The singer became stepmom to Savannah and Seth when she got married to music manager Blackstock in October 2013. After the couple tied the knot at Blackberry Farms in Tennessee, Clarkson was ready to grow their family right away.
“When you get married, it’s like official,” she told PEOPLE. “You’re starting a family and we want to have more children, so we’re just excited.”
In addition to Blackstock’s children he shares with ex-wife Melissa Ashworth, the pair have added daughter River and son Remington to their beautiful family.
Reps for Clarkson did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
The sad news came as Clarkson had been social distancing at the couple's Montana ranch with Blackstock and their children amid the coronavirus pandemic, even filming remote episodes of her talk show The Kelly Clarkson Show from their home.
Christina Aguilera & Jordan Bratman
When it comes to family, the singer and her ex-husband will always make it work.
Aguilera shared an intimate shot of herself, Bratman and her son Max during his 12th birthday festivities, writing, "We make blended families work. It’s a beautiful thing.💞"
Bruce Willis & Demi Moore
After 13 years of marriage, Willis and Moore share three daughters together: Rumer, Scout and Tallulah. But the family has grown since Willis married Emma Heming in 2009: the father of three is now a father of five and big sister Rumer could not be happier to have little sisters Mabel and Evelyn added to the Willis crew.
"You are my best friends for life. You make me a better version of myself everyday and I am so excited to embark on another year with you," Rumer captioned this sweet sister photo.
Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey
When it comes to family, no bond is stronger than Cannon's #NcredibleGang. The actor shares twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Carey and coparents Golden with model Brittany Bell.
Mohamed & Yolanda Hadid
In addition to strong family genes, the Hadids have strong family values that keep them close as a blended family. Real estate developer Mohamed's first marriage to ex-wife Mary Butler ended in 1992 and the former couple share Marielle and Alana together. Then, when Mohamed married ex-wife and former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda in 1994, the couple welcomed Gigi, Bella and Anwar before they split in 2000. Despite what went on with their parents, the Hadid kids remain super close.
Reese Witherspoon & Jim Toth
The Toth family shared this picture-perfect Christmas card on mama Witherspoon's Instagram in 2018. The photo includes Ava and Deacon, whom Witherspoon shares with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, and Tennessee, whom the star shares with her hubby Toth.
Kevin & Eniko Hart
Gisele Bündchen & Tom Brady
It's one football-loving family! The New England Patriots quarterback dad and supermodel mom are happy parents to Jack, whom Brady shares with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, and little ones Benjamin and Vivian.
Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade
Once the couple got married in Miami in August 2014, Union became stepmom to Zaire, Zion and Xavier, Wade’s three sons he shares with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches. But in November 2018, the Wade family made room for one more: Kaavia James, who is her dad’s mini-me and has her own Instagram page, arrived via surrogate and the family could not be happier.
Alec & Hilaria Baldwin
The Baldwin bunch seemingly grew overnight. Baldwin and his wife share four children: daughter Carmen Gabriela plus sons Romeo Alejandro David, Leonardo Ángel Charles and Rafael Thomas. The actor is also dad to adults daughter Ireland from his previous marriage to Kim Basinger.
Kris & Caitlyn Jenner
The title of most famous blended family in Hollywood has to go to the Kardashian-Jenners. Throughout their 23-year marriage, Kris and ex Caitlyn (formerly known as Bruce) shared 10 children together.
Caitlyn has four kids from previous marriages: Burt and Cassandra with ex Chrystie Scott and Brandon and Brody with ex Linda Thompson. Kris has four children from her first marriage to the late Robert Kardashian: Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob. Then, the couple added the youngest siblings Kendall and Kylie to their kid count before Kris filed for divorce in 2014.
Russell Wilson & Ciara
The Wilsons have their hands full with Future Zahir, whom Ciara shares with rapper Future, and their baby girl Sienna Princess Wilson.
Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez
Even before the two got engaged in March 2019, Lopez, Rodriguez and their combined four kids were already their own blended family. Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony have twins Maximilian “Max” David and Emme Maribel, while Rodriguez and ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis share daughters Ella and Natasha. Although the newly engaged couple hasn’t started wedding planning yet, a source told PEOPLE that their kids will “definitely” play a huge role in their wedding.
Will & Jada Pinkett Smith
The Smiths celebrated 20 years of marriage in December 2017, and according to Jada, have evolved their relationship status from “married” to “life partners” to “dissolve all the expectations” they had of marriage. This shift in thinking has helped the stars with become stronger parents to Willow, Jaden and Trey, whom Smith shares with ex-wife Sheree Zampino.
Eddie Murphy & Paige Butcher
The comedian is a happy father to 10 kids. Murphy shares five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell: Bria, Shayne, Zola, Miles and Bella, and also has two children with his fiancée Paige Butcher: Izzy and Max.
