7 Moms Who Put The “Cool” In “Mom” (If Cool Was Actually in Mom)

Happy Mother’s Day!

Well, most likely not to you, but to that fabulous woman who pushed your giant head out of their little birth canal raised you, taught you, loves you and continues to support dollar pitcher nights you. She’s pretty fantastic, right? Of course she is, and that’s why she deserves those flowers/breakfast in bed/coupon for a “day free of doing the dishes” because you’re too broke to actually buy her something.

But she’s not the only awesome mom out there. (Duh, have you met mine?) We’ve been exposed to lots of really rockin’ moms in our lifetimes, and CollegeCandy is going to count down the bombest 7.

In no particular order, the 7 moms we’d want as our own (if, you know, we didn’t already have some pretty rocktastic mamas):

Heidi Klum

Not only is she an awesome hands-on mom, but she’s an awesome hands-on mom and does it all. Including walking in ridiculously tall, obscenely gorgeous heels. She produces a TV show, she designs jewelry, she looks smokin’ hot both pregnant and not pregnant (even though we haven’t seen much of the “not pregnant” in the past few years) and despite pumping out a whole litter of children, she still looks way better in a bikini than my never-been-preggers body ever will.

Stiffler’s Mom


OK, so I don’t want her as my mom (ew), but I do wanna be her one day.

Mrs. Nefler

This Beverly Hills diva was dealing with a terrible divorce and still found the time and energy to give up her life of luxury and be her daughter’s Girl Scout troop leader. I know I was praying for her to be my mom when she took the girls to camp out in a hotel, beat those evil Blue Feathers at their own stupid game, and invented that genius camping backpack that doubles as a clothing rack!

Gwen Stefani


Much like Heidi, Gwen is one hot mom. She pretty much reinvented the whole idea of “mom style” (no unflattering butt pockets on this woman’s jeans) and proves that you really can do it all. Plus, have you seen her kids? They’re both well under 5 and way cooler and hotter than I’ll ever be.

Lorelai Gilmore


Come on, did anyone watch Gilmore Girls and not want Lorelai as their own mom? She was so cute and quirky and cool. And she always had hot boyfriends. (OK, so maybe that’s not really a “cool mom” factor, but it’s still true. Girlfriend had it going. on.) Plus, she and Rory had the best relationship (and witty banter!) ever, something every teenage girl wants for her very own.

Mrs. George


Mrs. George: [serving the Plastics fruit drinks] Hey, you guys! Happy hour is from four to six!
Cady
: Um, is there alcohol in this?
Mrs. George: Oh, God, honey, no! What kind of mother do you think I am? Why, do you want a little bit? Because if you’re going to drink I’d rather you do it in the house.

Nancy Botwin


Like most moms, Nancy would do anything for her family. Unlike most moms, Nancy’s “anything” includes selling a whole lot of pot. God, I bet those family dinners are awesome.
