Heres the line up
-Cheryl Cole (Never seen her with her child)
-Vogue Williams (Not sure who she is)
-Rosie Ramsey (Again, Not sure who she is, Gordon Ramseys wife? no?)
-Sam Faiers (LOL)
-Kate Middleton (NOT even a celeb, shes a royal)
-Rochelle Humes (Hmm, I can cope with that)
-Holly Willoughby ( ??? )
-Louise Pentland (Fab)
- Giovanna Fletcher (Fab)
- Roxanne Hoyle (Fab)
But again, the last 3 aren't really celebs, they are classed as 'Influencers / Youtubers' but if anyone should get it it should be one of those in my eyes.

Who gets to nominate this list of Mums? Anyone know... just a bit of fun guys don't bite my face of and spit it out 🤨😁😁😁

@trebless that is very true x

trebless Mon 11-Mar-19 14:25:07

Set up that should say!

trebless Mon 11-Mar-19 14:24:38

I voted for Roxanne but only because I've watched a fair few lad baby videos and I think she is brill!! Saying that, I watched a video of them the other day where it was her bday and felt it's getting to that ' clearly a set uo' stage now but still...love her x

I see everyone else has got in there before me, but Kerry Katona and Katie Price are hardly the pinnacles of motherhood. I don’t want awards and shit to tell me I’m mother of the year. I know I am.

Elloello Mon 11-Mar-19 14:21:39

Oh yes just what the world needs, more of celebs patting each other on the back for being supreme human beings... hmm

PinkHeart5914 Mon 11-Mar-19 14:18:58

Of course it’s rubbish!

Didn’t Kerry Katona and katie price win previous? If them two car crashes are the standard....

thenightsky Mon 11-Mar-19 14:11:35

I've only heard of 3 of them.

cloudymelonade Mon 11-Mar-19 14:09:23

I agree the concept is a bit ridiculous but just FYI, Rosie Ramsey is fab and if any of them should win something, she probably should.

outpinked Mon 11-Mar-19 14:06:15

Katie Price and Kerry Katona won in previous years so that says all you need to know. Also don’t agree with motherhood being a competition, how bizarre.

I honestly haven’t heard of most of these. Giovanna Fletcher is married to Tom Fletcher so I know her purely because of that. Holly Willoughby, Cheryl Tweedy and Rochelle Humes I know and obvs Kate Middleton. The rest I have absolutely no idea 🤷🏻‍♀️.

Agreed about Cheryl though, she posted one thing about her son when he was born two years ago and hasn’t been seen with him since. Not knocking her for keeping her son out of the public eye at all but unsure how she can win this award.

I stand corrected then on Dad of the Year.

EntirelyAnonymised Mon 11-Mar-19 09:40:01

It’s a nonsense ‘award’ used to promote nappies or some other baby/child product.

MarieIVanArkleStinks Mon 11-Mar-19 09:38:02

Celebrity ANYTHING is a crock of shit. It's a vapid, pointless culture that values absolutely the wrong things, and it encourages those who follow it also to value the wrong things and then be unhappy because they'll never be able to emulate these people materially. As Oscar Wilde once said, 'vanity is knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing'. If people want 'models' for parenting, they're looking in entirely the wrong place.

I know it's a po-faced response, but nevertheless it's an honest one.

@sparklytwinklyfairylights oh sorry didn't spot that! Which one? X

sparklytwinklyfairylights Mon 11-Mar-19 08:51:52

That's why I said "one" of the influencers

HJWT Mon 11-Mar-19 08:45:48

@sparklytwinklyfairylights actually Louise very rarely uses her children for social media 'gains' and thats why I like her, she always asks her older daughter if she can put her on camera before doing so but even that is rare xx

HJWT Mon 11-Mar-19 08:44:40

@RuggyPeg there is a dad of the year it was won by Roxanne's husband... google LadBaby.

NorfolkEnchance Mon 11-Mar-19 08:24:01

RuggyPeg there is a dad of the year. I believe it was won by ladbaby..

sparklytwinklyfairylights Mon 11-Mar-19 07:58:22

Out of them all I would, if forced, vote for Cheryl for the very reason that we haven't seen her photographed with her child.
One of the "influencers" you say you could cope with would be down at the bottom of my list due to the fact they child is used to boost their career which I find a very bizarre way to behave but do appreciate that this is a very outdated opinion

RuggyPeg Mon 11-Mar-19 07:43:43

It's ridiculous but so many things in this weird old life are. Vogue will win, as she's touting herself all over social meedja at the mo, so her profile is high. Why is there no Dad of the Year though? Not that I agree with men gegging in on everything (I really don't) but why do men get off scott-free from having to be super dads? Oh yeah, the patriarchy.

anniehm Mon 11-Mar-19 07:38:28

Only even heard of 3 of these! The winner should be any which don't have household staff and manage to cope with kids (special needs kids a bonus), a job, low income and a exh who fails to pay child support on time!

HJWT Mon 11-Mar-19 07:24:12

@SquigglySquaw that will explain it then as I don't read, I know she married to a man from that band that used to be quite popular.

@Mammaaofxx I just know her from youtube!! 😁

DippyAvocado Sun 10-Mar-19 23:31:30

Is there a presentation ceremony?What do you think the chances of Kate attending are? (I'm going with 0%).

Mammaaofxx Sun 10-Mar-19 23:28:02

Louise Pentland is also a successful author

CruCru Sun 10-Mar-19 23:24:54

It's a weird idea. I don't know many of these people.

Having said that, perhaps a famous woman who makes sure that people don't see her child in the press (the OP mentioned that Cheryl Cole isn't seen with her child) is a good mother.

sleepalldays Sun 10-Mar-19 23:16:44

What a bizarre awardconfused there's no way it could be judged fairly either as many people parent differently and many choose to keep theirs out of the public eye/social media.

To me it's a meaningless award.

I do however really like Vogue, she seemed really nice and funny on her TV show with Spencer (why are there only 3 eps of that??!!)
