In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re celebrating some of the celebrity moms who became new parents in the year since last Mother’s Day, some for the first time, others not. These are the ones we think most successfully negotiated the turbulent waters between cool and cuckoo.

Ace—Jessica Simpson

Daughter Maxwell Drew, born in 2012 got a baby brother, Ace Knute, just a year later. Ace is a jaunty nickname name that’s rapidly moving mainstream; it’s also been used by Natalie Appleton and Tom Dumont. Middle-name Knute honors baby’s dad Eric Johnson’s Swedish grandfather.
