Celebs/Parents You've Gotta Freakin' Follow on Insta

Nicole Doliner

I’d like to meet someone who doesn’t spend a good chunk of their day procrastinating. One of my favorite ways to procrastinate is trolling Instagram. Because of Instagram, I became deeply invested in who got custody of Piggie Smallz when Pete Davidson & Ariana Grande broke up, I send memes to my sister on the daily, and I love watching celebrity parents struggle just like I do. Here are some of my favorite celebrity parenting Instagram accounts!

Jada Pinkett Smith (@jadapinkettsmith)

Jada has created a feed full of inspirational content, thanks to her internet talk show Red Table Talk (hosted with her daughter Willow & her mom, Adrienne Banfield-Norris). But she is also fiercely proud of her children and posts silly videos in honor of their birthdays, clips from son Jaden’s music videos, and gushes about motherhood. Worth a follow for the feel-good content and the awe-inspiring love she has for her children.


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (@therock)

He says “you’re welcome” for the eye candy, but in between videos of his workouts and travels around the world are stunning photos of the bonds he shares with his daughters. His skin-to-skin photo when his 3rd daughter Tiana was born melted everyone’s heart and made us love The Rock even more. He is such a doting & devoted dad, and it’s really sweet to see.


Chrissy Teigen (@chrissyteigen)

Chrissy is the queen of keeping it real! Not only are her two kids, Luna & Miles, so freaking adorable, she has the most hilarious comebacks and comments. She has zero tolerance for any mom shaming on her (or husband John Legend’s) account and is never afraid to shut down haters. Her most recent clapback was about someone judging bottle feeding, to which she replied, ‘john never breastfed Miles.’ She’s the unofficial patron saint of moms everywhere.


Gabrielle Union (@gabunion)

Gabrielle Union has long been open about her struggles with infertility and in early November welcomed her daughter via surrogate. Besides the adorable newborn baby photos, Gabrielle is going to be a mom to watch as her daughter grows up. Her husband, basketball player Dwayne Wade, has already starred in number of skin-to-skin daddy photos that make my heart melt.


Kristen Bell (@kristenanniebell)

Kristen Bell and husband Dax Shepard (@daxshepard) don’t show their daughters’ faces on Instagram, but are always quick to show us sneak peeks into their lives in the form of homemade art and hilarious hijinks, like when the girls decided to tape unwrapped gum onto their chairs. I’m also obsessed with Kristen’s constant commentary on how humbling it is that her own daughters don’t give a crap that she’s the voice of one of the biggest Disney princesses ever. Plus, she does a great series on YouTube called Momsplaining that’s worth a watch.
