20 Celebrity Mums Who Adopted Children

Sandra Bullock has just adopted a 3 1/2 year old girl, Laila, to join her adopted son, Louis. And we all know that Angelina Jolie has three adopted kids in addition to her three biological children, but these Hollywood stars are not the only ones in Tinseltown who have adopted children. Mum to three biological boys, Cate Blanchett adopted a daughter, Edith, this year, and Charlize Theron is mother to two adopted children (one from the U.S. and one from her homeland, South Africa).

The process of adopting a child can get complicated, drawn out, and at times heartbreaking — even for major Hollywood stars. But all of these celebrities (some single, some married) say they couldn’t be happier with their decisions, whether all of their children are adopted (like Katherine Heigl), or they conceived naturally before going the adoption route (like Madonna).

Take a look at the stars who have adopted children.
