Sarah Michelle Gellar

Charlotte is my best friend, and any free time I have, I want to spend with her.

We love Buffy alum Sarah Michelle Gellar! The actress and husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. -- who are expecting their second child -- are parents to 2-year-old daughter Charlotte.

"Charlotte is my best friend, and any free time I have, I want to spend with her," the proud mom gushed. "But while it's easy to forget yourself, I can't define myself as only Charlotte's mother -- one day, she's going to be an adult, and then where am I?"

And it sounds like she definitely deserves our top honor -- she's already taught baby Charlie to love her greens!

"We've already taught her to love healthy food," the mom-of-one shared.

"We took her to sushi on Saturday night, and everybody couldn't believe what she inhaled. I think it's important at a young age to enjoy different tastes. And we make this green juice for her. It's basically everything but the kitchen sink. We go to the farmers market and buy everything and just put it in the juicer: kale, Swiss chard, carrots, celery... You name it. And now we've all started drinking it, and we've all been healthier."

Jennifer Garner

Alias alum Jennifer Garner and husband Ben Affleck welcomed their third child, son Samuel Garner, on Feb. 27. The high profile couple are also parents to daughters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3.

The hands-on mama recently gushed about her adorable and hilarious girls. "You know how once you have kids you never ever pee by yourself again? At least one of them is always in there with you at all times," Jen shared. "So the other day... [Violet] is in there with me and all of the sudden she went, 'Oh Mom, we have to have a talk'. She said, 'Mom, your bottom has gotten so big that your panties don't even begin to cover it.' I said, 'It's called a thong, you wear it when you're a grown-up.' She was like, 'Uh, that is so gross!'"

Angelina Jolie

Everything that matters in life has to do with being a parent.

Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie and her longtime love, Brad Pitt, are parents to six kids: Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and 4-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

"There are far too many things to count," Angie said on the joys of motherhood. "But everything that matters in life has to do with being a parent."

While she's had a colorful past, the actress said she's honored to be considered a role model.

"I was such a punk for so long, you can't imagine you'd be anybody's role model," she said. "I'm very grateful that I've had the opportunity to do some things that have allowed me to be a role model. I hope I'm [a role model] for my children, and especially for my daughters."

Alyson Hannigan

How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan and husband Alexis Denisof welcomed their second child, daughter Keeva, on May 23. The couple, who costarred in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, are also parents to 3-year-old daughter Satyana.

"There's so many in a day," Alyson told Celebrity Baby Scoop of cherished moments with her daughter. "It's hard to choose any of them, but they're all so special. I love her perspective on life and I love getting to be a part of her world. She's just such a sweet, sweet person and I love the things that come out of her mouth. She's just so full of personality and so lovely. [Motherhood is] just the greatest thing ever!"

Jessica Alba

Now I have what I do for a living in perspective.

Fantastic Four star Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren welcomed their second daughter, Haven, in August 2011. The couple are also parents to 3-year-old daughter Honor.

Jessica said motherhood "changed everything" and helped her gain perspective.

"I felt completely different [after becoming a mom]," Jess said. "I really came into myself as a person. Before, I was always working for my identity. And then you take the focus off of yourself. I was probably, definitely, a bit of a narcissist. When you are young, an actor and are driven, it's a bizarre state of mind to be in at times. I was so focused on things that didn't matter at the end of the day. Now I have what I do for a living in perspective. Working was everything to me, my entire identity, and once I got to step away from it, everything changed."
