A number of celebrities had children starting school this week and just like the rest of us, they took a moment to post a proud pic on instagram, FB or Twitter. A buffet of adorableness.
Melissa Joan Hart
The Melissa & Joey alum’s boys — Mason, 10, and Brady, 8 — were back at it while Tucker, almost 3, was there for moral support. “First day of school for these monkeys. 3rd and 5th grade! Can’t believe I’m missing this milestone but I’m homeward bound in less than a day and cannot wait to kiss these faces and beg that they stop growing up so fast!” wrote Hart, who was working in the U.K.
Jamie Lynn Spears
The “How Could I Want More” singer was just a teen when she gave birth to Maddie, who’s now 8 and thriving in the third grade.
Justin Bieber’s little bro (and bestie!) Jaxon, 6, made a statement with his shirt choice at his Canadian school. Cue Whitney Houston’s “Greatest Love of All.”
Liv Tyler: The Leftovers actress couldn’t get over her “beautiful Milo” having “legs for miles” as the 11-year-old headed off to school in London wearing an Adidas T-shirt and jeans. BTW, mom still has two kids at home in diapers.
The NBA star’s little princes — Bronny, 11, and Bryce, 9 — were stylin’ with their polo shirts, khaki shorts, and backpacks on their first day. “Man my boys are getting too big on their pops! … My firstborn already in middle school. SMH,” LeBron wrote. “Man please time slow down some. Flies by before u even know it.”
Busy Philipps: The first day of school isn’t awesome for everyone. The Cougar Town alum’s daughter Cricket, 3, was “NOT feeling the back to school vibe today,” shared mom. That stinks, but a sulky kid does make for a great photo op.
Rebecca Romijn: It’s hard to know who was more excited for school to start — The Librarians actress or her feisty 7-year-old twin daughters with Jerry O’Connell, Dolly and Charlie. “Hallelujah 1st day of school!” Romijn captioned the pic. “See ya suckas!” Bonus points to the girls for their strong footwear game.
Rosie O’Donnell: The onetime co-host of The View, who has five children, had a front-door photo session for middle kids Blake, 16, and Vivienne, 13. “Here we go….school,” Rosie wrote. Her youngest, Dakota, 3, is still a few years off.
Elton John: Across the pond, the singing legend sent his two little chaps, Zachary, 5, and Elijah, 3, off to preschool at St. George’s School, Windsor Castle — and, boy, did they look stylish in their caps and uniforms.
Madonna! It was an early morning for the Material Girl as she sent her two youngest — David Banda, almost 11, and Mercy James, 10 — off to their NYC school, Lycée Français de New York. “First Day of School!! I’m Good with 4 hours of sleep I swear!” Madge wrote with a slew of coffee emojis. Those shades keep any sign of tired eyes well masked. (Photo: Instagram)
Jessica Alba: The actress and Honest Company guru’s hubby, Cash Warren, shared this shot of their dynamic duo, Honor, 8, and Haven, 5. “Big things happening today for the two tiny occupants of Casa de Warren. Good luck!!” wrote the proud daddy.
