This Golden Globe–winning, Emmy-nominated, Broadway actress is a celeb mom who keeps it real. Jennifer Garner is a superstar in front of the cameras as well as off. The natural beauty was born in Texas, raised in Virginia, and now makes her home in Los Angeles and New York City And this lucky lady gets to share her life with husband, actor Ben Affleck and darling daughter, Violet Anne.

Amidst all the Hollywood pressure to appear like a glam mama, Garner makes it clear that Violet is her number one priority. On weekends she can be found in jeans, running shoes, and T-shirts at the park with her Red Sox lovin' hubby and daughter or going to farmers markets.

Somehow between work and mothering, she also finds the time to be a spokesperson for the Faces of Influenza Campaign and attend movie premieres looking drop-dead gorgeous.

The beaming mom beams about her own mom. She said:

"My mom's most oft-repeated momisms are: 'Happiness is your own responsibility' and 'Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes in the morning.' Both are true."

Motherhood certainly agrees with the starlet. We're proud to have watched her blossom from the awkward piano player on Felicity to the A–list actress and role model she is today.

You can currently catch her on stage with Kevin Klein in the Broadway show Cyrano de Bergerac.
