Who says you have to stop rocking after you purchase a rocking chair? These celebrity moms show that they are capable of handling a family and a career, and that there is nothing wrong with that!
#1 Brody Dalle
Tattoos, motherhood, and rock and roll guitar unite! Front woman of The Distillers and indie band Spinnerette is also the mother of two children with her husband Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age.
#3 Patti Smith
The iconic Patti Smith took herself away from the public eye for 16 years in order to concentrate on raising a family. Now at 71 years old, shes seen rock and rolling all over with a 2018 tour across the world.
Over the years, PiNK has not only been a great example for female pop artists but also for moms across the world. She is no stranger to using her platform to preach body-positivity, breastfeeding, napping, and all the other duties that come with being a rocking mom.
“The most important jewels that will ever be wrapped around your neck are the arms of your children. Good job Mamas.” – PiNK via Twitter
#4 Jhené Aiko
Jhené Aiko proves that the “you can’t grow your career past motherhood” narrative is completely false. After falling pregnant at 20, Aiko recorded her first mixtape which led to the signing of her Def Jam deal. The artist was a single mother throughout her entire career and is a leading example for single mothers everywhere.
“I would describe myself as a mother, lover, writer, and singer, but always a mother first.” – Jhené Aiko
