Look at Hollywood’s young, famous parents and step-parents, for parenting tips, as well as to see how they’ve managed it all

If the Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries union prove anything, it’s that most Hollywood marriages are doomed from the start.

Unfortunately, these brief marriages – as ugly/odd as they end – often bring about some beautiful kids.

Let’s take a look at some of Hollywood’s young, famous parents and step-parents, their kids and how they’ve managed it all.

Britney Spears: We’ve followed this young mom from a young start to becoming a powerhouse. It feels like we’ve seen it all with Spears, including spiraling out of control after divorcing the father of her two kids, Kevin Federline. But with that storyline in the past, it’s great to see her healthy and happy with new beau, Jason Trawick. They even made a sizzling music video together. Wonder what her kids will think of this video a few years down the line?

Kate Hudson: Although Kate Hudson is juggling a step-parent situation of her own with her son, Ryder and new boyfriend, Matthew Bellamy, it’s her upbringing that makes this post worthwhile. Her mother, Goldie Hawn, raised her together with long-time boyfriend, actor Kurt Russell. They’ve been together since 1983!

Jada Pinkett Smith: Before becoming the dynamic duo that they are today, Jada was probably managing how to be a good step-mother to Will Smith’s first son, Willard Christopher “Trey” Smith III. When recent rumors of the couple splitting took on the Internet and media, it was Trey who went online and Tweeted in his parent’s defense.

Tameka “Tiny” Cottle: Although maybe not completely conventional, we must say that Tiny’s relationship with T.I. borders romantic. The two have been together for 2001, and the “King of South” has since taken on the role of being a stepfather to her daughter, Zonnique. In addition, Tiny is stepmom to T.I. two sons from a previous relationship.

Sean Combs: We have to throw a modern dad in the scene as well! Combs took on step-parenting – like much of his career – with style and grace. He’s been noted as being a big influence to step-son (from previous relationship with Kim Porter), Quincy.
