So 2014: Hollywood Families Redefined

From single moms like Denise Richards and Sheryl Crow to doting dads like Neil Patrick Harris and Alec Baldwin, these celebs prove that loving families come in all forms


Having children with longtime partner David Furnish was a secret dream for Elton John. So after a failed attempt at adopting a Ukrainian toddler in 2009, the couple turned to surrogacy. Son Zachary (pictured) was born in 2010, followed by son Elijah two years later (Lady Gaga is godmother to both boys). The couple has since been vocal about their plans to tie the knot, too. "We'll do it very quietly. But we will do it and it will be a joyous occasion and we will have our children," John shared earlier this year.
