5 Celebrity Godparents


Since we don’t live in Neverland, fairy godmothers are hard to come by, but some lucky babies have the next best thing – a celebrity godparent to spoil them rotten!

Here are five famous kids who have equally famous godparents: 

1. Harper Beckham

She was voted most stylish baby back in 2012, which is no wonder considering her momma is Posh Spice. But what gave her the edge over other fashionable tots? Having Eva Longoria as her godmother! Longoria told Cover Media, “She is adorable.  I love her.  She has got pretty good genes.  David and Victoria are so much fun to hang out with.”

2. Coco Arquette

Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox didn’t just play friends on TV.  Aniston loves all over Cox’s little girl, Coco Arquette, and Coco loves her, too!  “Coco calls me Nouna.  I see her almost every weekend and she’s really turning into such a lovely little girl.  She’s sweet, funny, and creative, and we just sit there in awe of her,” Aniston told Celebrity Baby Scoop in 2010. 

3. Frances Bean Cobain

Drew Barrymore got Leonardo DaVinci to act as her “fairy godmother” in Ever After.  But she is herself a god-mother to the now grown-up daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, Francis Bean Cobain.  Courtney Love and Drew Barrymore became friends during their shared “bad girl” phases.  Love says she met Barrymore “in a bathroom, smoking.  I was 19 and she was like 8.”

4. Matilda Rose Ledger

When Heath Ledger died, he left behind his daughter Matilda Rose and her mom, Michelle Williams.  The little girl was well looked after and loved though, with the help of her celebrity fairy godmother, Busy Philipps.  Philipps and Williams starred together on Dawson’s Creek and have been close friends ever since.  They even go together to awards shows for support. Busy’s got little girls too, and they love helping their mommies get glammed up.  Sounds like reverse god-mothering, but just wait until the first prom!

5. Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal is all grown up, and so is his big sister, Maggie but both are still close with Jake’s famous godmother, Jamie Lee Curtis.  His godfather is none other than Paul Newman.  Apparently, this godfamily is very close.  Another fun fact:  Jake is, himself, the godfather to little Matilda Rose.
