In the spirit of American Thanksgiving, which you can't not get pulled into if you like your celebs, your TV and entertainment (it's definitely one of Hollywood's favourite holidays!), welcome to our gallery of celeb kids and their grandparents. Indeed, if there's one person I'm thankful for, it's my mom. She's an awesome grandma. This gallery's for you, Ma! xo
Let's start with this precious pic of Charlize Theron's mom, Gerda, and baby Jackson (who's now around one year old). They're photo'd here spending quality time together, in Paris, France, last May. They took in some famous Paris sights and posed for photos to memorialize their special time together.
Aww, how sweet is this? Looks like the in-laws really get along in the McConaughey-Alves family. Here's Camila Alves' mom, Fatima, and Matthew McConaughey's mom, Kay, escorting Vida from church in Austin, Texas, September 30, 2012.
In my interview with Camila, she said her mom helps out a ton with the kids:
It's just me and my mother with the kids. I don't have a bunch of different nannies that circle around. There's nothing wrong with a lot of nannies. I just like to be very hands-on. We make their lunches, get them ready for school, drive them and pick them up from school every day.
Here's Angelina Jolie taking twins Knox and Vivienne, 4, shopping with Grandma Jane Pitt, last February, in Beverly Hills, California — the day after her famous appearance at the Academy Awards in that black dress with the thigh-high slit. Remember the pose...? Awesome!
Alas, it's worth noting that Jane was the source of some controversy recently surrounding the Obama campaign and LGBT rights. Angelina and Brad are passionate gay-rights activists (Brad just donated $100,000 to the Human Rights Campaign's National Marriage Fund), so not sure what the status of their relationship is right now.
Check out Beyoncé and her mom, Tina Knowles, out for a walk with baby Blue Ivy Carter (now 10 months) in NYC last March. As you can see, Blue was strapped tight to mom in their baby carrier of choice, the Baby Bjorn.
Love Beyonce's snazzy pants!
Here's the elusive Calista Flockhart having a grand old time with her son, Liam, 11.5, and her mom, Kay. They were on their way to Liam's flag football game last May, in Brentwood, California.Photo: Pablo/Stoianov/FameFlynet Pictures
Can you tell if this is Jennifer Garner or Ben Affleck's dad walking with little Seraphina?
It's Ben's dad! Did you guess right? He's photo'd here spending Thanksgiving Day with Seraphina, 3.5, in Pacific Palisades, California, almost exactly a year ago. Looks like Seraphina's making him work — carrying all her toys!
Seraphina's older sister, Violet, 6.5, and Grandma were there too (see next slide!).
There's Violet and Grandma Chris Affleck!
And in case you haven't had enough of the Affleck family...
...Here are Seraphina, Violet and Grandma Affleck at the park.
I remember this photo from when I first posted it last year. Grandma was taking care of the girls while Jennifer and Ben were in New York City promoting Jennifer's movie Arthur. Such a sweet photo of the three of them at a park together in Santa Monica, California.
Oh, wait! We're not done with the Afflecks yet. How sweet is this family? And now we get to love the extended family, too.
Here's Jennifer's dad, William Garner, with his grandson, Samuel, nine months. How cute is this baby?! OY!
Now we know who supermodel Miranda Kerr got her extreme height from!
Here she is with her mom, Therese, her grandmother, Ann, and baby Flynn (now almost two), at the Sydney Airport in Australia last May — a Mother's Day reunion!
So it's not the best photo of Gwen Stefani, her lovely mom, Patti, and the boys — Kingston, 6.5, and Zuma, 4. But it's got character!
They're photo'd here going to a school festival in Encino, California, last May.
If you're watching Project Runway like I am, you're probably excited to see Heidi Klum here with her mom, Erna, and the kids — Henry, 7, Johan, 6, Leni, 8, and Lou, 3 — right?
They're photo'd here heading to the Louis Vuitton store and The Grove in Los Angeles, California, after the kids' karate class.
Here's actress Katherine Heigl, her daughter little Naleigh (now four), and dad, Paul Heigl, at the LAX airport earlier this year. Katherine's mom, Nancy, was also traveling with them, but she didn't make it into this pic.
Have you ever traveled with the extended family?
And, finally, here's Selma Blair and her mom taking baby Arthur Saint Bleick (now 16 months) for a walk, and grabbing some java together, last May in Los Angeles, California.
Does this gallery make you want to call your parents? Hope so. Love!
