To be a mom is hard. To be a single mom is even harder. These ten celebrity moms make it look easy, but many of them have “people” who help with the cooking, cleaning and care of their children. But still raising a little one on your own can be taxing no matter what demographic you are in, from movie star to mail sorter. And one of the hardest things to do? To date. There is the fear that a single man would not want an “instant” family, or to be a father figure to a child that is not biologically theirs. But these celebrities have a leg up on the single mom next door…they’re rich, famous and fabulous. Here are the ten most eligible celebrity single moms, Michelle Williams, Padma Lakshmi, Courtney Cox made the list, who else did and who do you think will be snapped up next?

Her (bitter) divorce is far from over, but that hasn’t stopped the single mom from already diving into the dating pool. She has recently been romantically tied to the French actor Olivier Martinez. So her single days may indeed be numbered.
America’s sweetheart will need, well, a TOTAL sweetheart after the horrible way that her ex Jesse James treated her. Her next man better be saintlike!
Kate Winslet has had a very mature split from her Sam Mendes. But she has already started dating and last year had been romantically linked to the model Louis Dowler.
Liv Tyler has been single for quite a while. She’s recently been spotted with the Theo Wenner (the son of Rolling Stone head honcho Jonn Wenner) but no word on if they are getting serious of not.
Top Chef host Padma isn’t just beautiful but she can cook! Now what man could resist that?
Michelle has raised daughter Matilda alone since her ex-Heath Ledger passed away. Michelle had a serious relationship with Spike Jonze but that did not last (although there have been rumors they may have reunited).
Minnie Driver has kept a good job at keeping a low profile, and keeping the father of her son Henry secret.
This ex-Bond girl may have the looks and adorable girls, but she does have one crazy ex- husband…Charlie Sheen…so any man would probably want to tread lightly when dating her or risk being called a “troll.”
She and David Arquette may be separated, but that apparently hasn’t spotted David from trying to get busy with his estranged wife. There are also rumors that she may be involved with one of her Cougar Town co-stars.
Uma has had an on again, off again relationship with businessman Arpad Busson, but the two have yet to seal the deal.
