Music's A-List Moms: Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani and More
“Boy you know you love it, how we smart enough to make these millions,” Beyonce belts on her 2011 single "Run the World (Girls)." “Strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business.” Motherhood’s no easy task and with moms across the land being celebrated this Sunday on Mother’s Day, it’s about that time to show love to those lady artists that are rockin’ parents as well.
Here, we present a photo salute to the hit-making women who know how to rock a mic and a carpool lane.
