Beyonce's pregnancy reveal was a highlight of 2011.

That time of year has come again, where we look back at all the great moments (sometimes crazy) and realize how good we truly have it. In our case, we are looking at some of the best celebrity parenting moments of 2011.

Remember when Beyonce infamously announced her pregnancy on the MTV VMAs red carpet special? We won’t forget that orange dress either. 2011 was also the year that Denise Richards adopted baby Eloise, Mariah Carey welcomed her twins into the world, and Melissa Gorga took the high road in the battle with Real Housewives of New Jersey costar and sister-in-law Teresa Giudice (mind you, she did not make our list!).

There were many moments in 2011 that we are completely fond of and we thought we’d focus on the happy and classy sides of our favorite celebrity parents. Take a look at the slideshow below!
