Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez And Other Successful Celebs Born To Teen Moms (Photos)

celebs born to teen moms

Sure, when we hear the term “Teen Mom” we think the MTV reality show, or even celebs such as Britney Spears’ sister Jamie-Lynn Spears or Beyonce’s sister Solange Knowles. But little do we know that there are quite a few successful entertainers out there that were born to teenaged mothers including the mighty Oprah Winfrey, Eric Clapton, and of course Justin Bieber.

While we know that teen moms have an advantage over tiger moms in the biological aspect of having kids earlier, what about the psychological aspect? While yes, younger moms have the extra energy in their youth to make it a few sleepless nights alive, tiger moms might be more affluent and stable in their careers, but they might also tend to raise more “anxiety-ridden and overly indulged” children because of their obsessiveness over their child’s future (as one psychologist puts it) as opposed to teen moms who tend to be more parent-friends to their kids.

Check out our photo gallery of celebrities who were also born to teenage moms and tell us, what do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of being both a “teen mom” and a “tiger mom?” Do you think older moms are more “pushy” towards education and extra-curricular activities while younger moms might allow their children to grow learning important life lessons in their own environments? Let’s hear your thoughts.
