Celebrity Parents That Seem Normal

Celebrity parents, celebrity kids paper dolls

And now, for your viewing pleasure, here are two sets of celebrity parents that seem normal.

First up: Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and husband Pete Wentz, hanging by the water with little Bronx Mowgli. I’ve written before that Bronx is a rough name for a kid to have, but at least the Simpson-Wentzes seem to be normal parents. See photos at the Daily Mail.

Next we have Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. She has an incredible career in music and fashion, and he used to be in a band called Bush that was sort of popular. (Rossdale and Bush are putting out a new album this year called Everything Always Now; you can download the first single here. Maybe it’ll be as big as ‘Hollaback Girl’. Trivia tidbit: according to the web site for No Doubt, the band Gwen Stefani started her career in, they used to open for Bush.) The headline is sort of odd: Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale leave their sons at home to celebrate eighth wedding anniversary. Should they bring the kids along? Stefani is gorgeous, and 40, which isn’t old but that’s older than I thought she was. I guess I think of rock stars as being young, but ‘Tragic Kingdom‘ came out in 1995, which was (gulp) 15 years ago. Again, pics of the happy family are at the Daily Mail web site.

Celebrity parents that seem normal are not, of course, a common occurrence. Or maybe parenting skills have an inverse relationship with a desire to seek the spotlight. Tough to say. Somebody study that, will you please?
