To the moms who are also 'dads' in their children's lives <3

On Father's Day, we give special honor to the men who raised, loved, provided, and sacrificed for us.

We also believe that it's a day we can share with the strong, single moms who did some magic and played the role of both parents in the lives of their children. <3

So, we've compiled a list of some celebrity single moms we look up to!

1. Meryll Soriano

"La Luna Sangre" actress Meryll Soriano is a single mom to son Elijah. She raised him on her own after her split with then-husband Bernard Palanca.

She describes her relationship with Elijah as being "super best friends".

2. Andi Eigenmann

Andi Eigenmann and Ellie is probably the coolest mother-and-daughter tandem!

As seen on Andi's posts, aside from constant travels, they enjoy swimming and skating, too!

4. Denise Laurel

Denise is a solo parent to son Alejandro. In 2011, Denise admitted that she recently gave birth to a son whose father is an Italian-American.


It's evident that the young boy got his good looks from his momma!

Her children are Kapamilya actor Daniel Padilla, Jose Carlito Padilla, Margaret Planas, and Carmela Tenorio.
