Celebrity mothers Beyonce Knowles and Angelina Jolie have been named among 2012’s Most Powerful Moms in a special poll.
Editors at Working Mother magazine have compiled a top 10 list of females who are leading the way in their chosen careers to mark America’s Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 13, and superstar Beyonce and Hollywood beauty Jolie have both made the cut, alongside comedienne Melissa McCarthy.
The Crazy in Love hitmaker became a first-time mum in January with the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy, while Jolie schedules her work commitments around her brood of six, and Bridesmaids star McCarthy is a mother to young daughters Vivian and Georgette.
"(They) are just a few of the mums making a major impact right now," Contactmusic quoted Jennifer Owens, Working Mother Media’s Editorial Director, as telling Us Magazine.
"All of the power women on our list have at least one child 18 or younger, and all are based in the US," she said.
Other noted mothers to make the list include The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins and TV presenter Ann Curry.
