These celebrity single moms prove that strong is beautiful and you don't really need a partner to be the best parent you can be
Raising a kid on your own while balancing a busy career is not easy. It takes intense focus, patience, and resilience to not only thrive in your career but in your role as a parent.
But, these beautiful celebrity single moms prove that it can be done.
1. Jean Garcia
It's hard to believe this hot momma is a grandma already! Her granddaughter, Mori, just turned one but she still considers her daughter, Jennica, her baby. The two have an enviable bond and often hang out together, despite their busy schedules.

2. Janice De Belen
A proud single mom of five, Janice de Belen had only one constant concern as her children were growing up: "Napapalaki ko kaya nang tama ang mga anak ko?"
Her children—Iggy Boy, Ina, Moira, Kyla, and Yuan—are all grownups now. And for Janice, seeing all of her daughters graduate from college and her youngest Yuan graduate from high school has been her greatest achievement.
"It's not easy. There's really no formula. But giving up or being weak is no option, especially if you have a lot of kids."
3. Candy Pangilinan
In 2003, the world of Candy Pangilinan fell apart when her husband left her for another woman a month after she gave birth to their son Quentin.
It was a very difficult period for her—she had no work, no money, and was dealing with body issues.
She became part of a theater project, and she recalled making people laugh onstage, but she sobbed backstage after her performance.
It took her a while before Candy could love herself again. "It was a process na kailangan para maging okay ako bilang ina. "Siguro kelangan mangyari ang mga yun para mahalin ko ang sarili,"
But her ordeal didn’t end with the dissolution of her marriage. Her son was diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) plus a “high-sensory integration problem,” so raising him was more challenging than it already was as a single parent.
Mama, mommy, Mamu, ina, inang, nanay, nay, mom, mother, mudra, oma, ma, mi... Ano man ang tawag ng mga anak o anak-anakan mo sa iyo. Mabuhay ka. Maligayang araw ng mga mudrakels! At salamat din sa mga anak dahil binigyan niyo kami ng pagkakataon maging ina sa inyo, at magbigay ng pagmamahal na di namin akalain na maaari.

4. Vina Morales
It was in 2013 when Vina Morales admitted that she's a single mom.
That same year, her legal battle with ex-partner Cedric Lee for the custody of their daughter began. "Okay naman as a single mom. I’m very open about it... Oo, siguro mako-consider na failure ang pagiging single mom.
"Pero suwerte yun kasi nagkaroon ako ng anak, isang buhay na ibinigay sa akin ng Diyos.
"I guess, I take it in a different way, mas positive... "Maraming single moms kaya! 'Tsaka proud ako!"

6. Jennylyn Mercado
The single mom has been dubbed FHM's sexiest woman in the country. But aside from being flawless and stunning, she is a devoted mom to her 7-year-old son with fellow actor Patrick Garcia, Jazz.
7. Andi Eigenmann
The devoted mom considers her 4-year-old daughter Ellie her top priority. "It's not about me anymore," the 26-year-old said in a recent interview. "As Ellie being my priority, I have to be mature enough to tell that these things need to go, this part of my life that doesn't do me any good."
8. Ruffa Gutierrez
On being a single mom to Lorin, 12, and Venice, 11, Ruffa told PEP, "I’m very blessed being able to provide my children the best life."
9. Denise Laurel
When she gave birth to her son Alejandro in 2011, she became the target of a lot of hateful comments. Despite this, she pressed on and worked hard to provide a good life for herself and her son.
"Being a single mom is really empowering because there's more purpose," she told PEP. "I wanted to show people that no matter what happens to you, it should never stop you from doing what you want to do."
To most of us, this day is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal and new life - for me it's also a time to reflect and be thankful. 5 years ago, on an Easter Sunday I was saved in a special way, when God blessed me with the greatest gift -my little warrior. As we end another Holy Week, let's still continue to do good, aspire to be better, find more ways to be thankful and aim to be kinder than necessary. Again, Happy Easter, from my family to yours <3 ( and BTW ISNt IT CRAZY my 5yr old looks like a Preteen?!?! Wth)
10. Sunshine Cruz
Despite the controversies surrounding her and ex-husband, Cesar Montano, this 39-year-old actress doesn't seem to let the stress get to her. She maintains a close relationship with their three daughters--all of whom live with her. They consider each other their "BFFs".
