Top 12 Celebrity Parent Predictions for 2011


  • Will and Jada Pinkett Smith will be overshadowed by their children. 1 of 12
    Will and Jada Pinkett Smith will be overshadowed by their children.
    Remember when Will and Jada were the biggest names in the Smith household? Old news. If 2010 is any indication, Jaden and Willow are poised to take the celebrity world by storm. Sorry, Will and Jada. Maybe you should have thought about that before having super-talented progeny.
  • Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will adopt. Again. 2 of 12
    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will adopt. Again.
    Brangelina last added to their ever-growing brood in 2008 with the birth of twins, Knox and Vivienne. It only seems natural that this power couple will give adoption another go in 2011. And then, we’ll all have an excuse to start calling the kids “Brad and Angie’s Magnificent Seven.”
  • Mariah Carey will record her own childrens album. 3 of 12
    Mariah Carey will record her own childrens album.
    Mariah and her husband, Nick Cannon, will join the ranks of other celeb parents when they welcome twins in the spring. MC is already known for several one-word monikered albums (Emotions, Daydream, Butterfly, Rainbow), so we think Baby, her very first children’s album, will fit right in. And really, who could resist those five-octave lullabies?
  • Kate Gosselin will avoid all reality TV. 4 of 12
    Kate Gosselin will avoid all reality TV.
    We know this mom of eight has to pay the bills somehow, but we’re hoping that she finds a day job that doesn’t involve a film crew. Those Gosselin kids are adorable, but Kate’s desperate attempts to remain relevant are just sad at this point.
  • Charlie Sheen will clean up his act and win a Father of the Year award. 5 of 12
    Charlie Sheen will clean up his act and win a Father of the Year award.
    For Charlie Sheen, 2010 was a year of bad news. (Let’s just say he won’t be going back to the Plaza Hotel anytime soon.) So this year is going to be all about redemption. Everyone deserves a second chance, right? Even Charlie Sheen.
  • Beyonc’ and Jay-Z will finally confirm all those pregnancy rumors. 6 of 12
    Beyonc' and Jay-Z will finally confirm all those pregnancy rumors.
    There probably won’t be a Destiny’s Child reunion anytime soon, so this year we’ll gladly settle for Beyoncé’s child. It’s about time she and husband, Jay-Z, blessed us with an adorable mini-version of music’s dynamic duo. And obviously, said baby would be destined for musical greatness, which gives us even more to look forward to!
  • Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus will make attempts to tame Miley. 7 of 12
    Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus will make attempts to tame Miley.
    Billy Ray and Tish may have called it quits in 2010, but they’re still parents to Miley “Can’t Be Tamed” Cyrus. And although the pop star recently turned 18, she needs some parental intervention before it’s too late. The “she’s just being Miley” excuse can only last for so long. Step in before you have a Lindsay Lohan-esque situation on your hands.
  • Kourtney Kardashian will become pregnant with baby No. 2. 8 of 12
    Kourtney Kardashian will become pregnant with baby No. 2.
    The eldest Kardashian sister will put her baby daddy drama behind her with plans for a little brother or sister for her son, Mason. And if Kourt doesn’t get preggers, we suspect at least one of the Kardashian sisters will get the job done. (Khloe — we’re looking at you!)
  • Gwyneth Paltrow will start a family band. 9 of 12
    Gwyneth Paltrow will start a family band.
    Paltrow’s husband (and Coldplay frontman), Chris Martin, is already well established in the music world. Gwyneth recently proved she’s got her own musical chops in her new movie, Country Strong. Why not make singing a full-fledged family activity? The Von Martin family singers, anyone?
  • Matthew McConaughey will teach son, Levi, to wear a shirt. 10 of 12
    Matthew McConaughey will teach son, Levi, to wear a shirt.
    We all know Dad is a free spirit (and not to mention pretty easy on the eyes without his shirt on). But we think this might be a good year for Matthew to teach the importance of wearing clothes to his offspring. No shoes, no shirt, no service — even if you’re the son of a movie star.
  • Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka will start a childrens clothing line. 11 of 12
    Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka will start a childrens clothing line.
    Harris and Burtka welcomed twins via surrogate in 2010. Now would be the perfect time for the couple to take on a non-acting endeavor. Maybe we’ve just seen one too many episodes of How I Met Your Mother, but can you imagine how cute the clothing in their “Suit Up” collection would be? It would be legen (wait for it) dary!
  • Michelle Obama will write a childrens book. 12 of 12
    Michelle Obama will write a childrens book.
    Following in her husband’s footsteps, (President Barack Obama’s book Of Thee I Sing: A Letter To My Daughters was published in November) Mrs. Obama will pen her own book. And all politics aside, we won’t be able to pass up a book written by someone with as much style and class as the first lady.
