Hollywood is swarming with celeb kids who have some of the biggest stars as parents.
Needless to say these children have very different childhoods than most of us — but we think it's really impressive when the Nicole Richie's, Jennifer Garner's, and Mark Wahlberg's of the industry can really put the well-being of their offspring first.
So we gotta know how you'd rank these parental units…
Thanks for watching the kids so your wife could party, Ben Affleck!
By all accounts Jennifer Garner had a raging shindig to celebrate her 44th birthday on Sunday in her LA home.
And by raging, we mean super grown-up and tasteful.
A source told People:
"There was a lot of laughter. Everyone seemed to have fun. Soft music played during the dinner. It was a quiet party and the last guests left by 11 p.m."
Thirty guests enjoyed a beautiful patio dinner on mismatched vintage furniture, and later a surprise marching band came to play much to Jen's squealing delight.
It was all directed by Wes Anderson, probably.
Her ex was on daddy duty taking their children Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel to dinner at a restaurant.
So he obviously wasn't invited. Ha!

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck continue to defy expectations!
After months of back and forth compliments and stellar coparenting, The Sun is reporting that the amicable exes have purchased a home in London together. According to a "Hollywood insider", Ben and Jen want to maintain their super close family while the actor shoots Justice League: Part One beginning April 11.
While the move might seem strange to most divorced couples, it's actually no big surprise in light of Affleck and Garner's friendship. The pair have been buddy buddy ever since they split this past June, a major accomplishment after allegations of cheating surfaced.
Confirming the parents' closeness, the source explained:
Jennifer Garner's biggest fan might be Ben Affleck!
While promoting Batman Vs. Superman on Friday, Ben reaffirmed a previous interview where he commended his ex on her AMAZING parenting skills. We guess the actor really wants us to know just how much he treasures Jen!
Clearly smitten with Garner's influence over their three young children, B.A. gushed:
"I am a giant fan of Jennifer. She's just a fabulous person. She's just a wonderful person. She's a great mother. She's a real talent."
Couldn't of said it better ourselves, Ben!
As for coparenting, Ben is just as pleased — in fact, the poppa has even taken some cues from the master herself:
A few years ago, Jennifer Garner helped Halle Berry pass California state legislation making it illegal for paparazzi to harass minors with famous parents!
During her testimony for the anti-papz bill, the actress told the committee that her son Samuel was terrified of the shutterbugs and flashing lights when ambushed by photographers.
Garner admitted that before the bill passed, 6 paparazzi cars were parked outside their home every day — and up to 15 to 20 cars on weekends!
While the legislation "has made things better," the actress said she and her children are still regularly followed and photographed — and her now 4-year-old son does not love all the attention.
The famous momma told the TV doctor every time her son sees the papz, he says:
At least Ben Affleck knows when to give a compliment!
On Sunday, Ben couldn't stop gushing about Jennifer Garner's mothering skills at the New York City premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The shower of compliments comes on the heels of Jen's revealing and emotional Vanity Fair article about the pair's July divorce and friendly run in at the Oscars. Given the recent positivity, we're not too surprised that the actor thinks the world of his ex!
Dishing to E! News, Mr. Affleck said of Garner's "amazing" mommy expertise:
Lauren Weedman is opening up about discovering that her husband David was allegedly having an affair with their son Leo's 18-year-old babysitter. The actress didn't find out about the betrayal until after their split.
After an 11-year relationship, Miz Weedman and David decided to call it quits, but were successfully co-parenting their son when she discovered the inappropriate relationship.
In a story she penned for the New York Post, Weedman shared:
"So when David accidentally left his laptop at my place, I didn't think anything of turning it on. The computer had once belonged to me, and I wanted to make sure I hadn't left any important videos — such as Leo's birth — behind. But the oldest video on David's computer wasn't one of Leo splashing in the bathtub. It was of our babysitter, Simone, sans clothes — and it was dated 2011, a year before David and I had even gotten married."
The Looking star described herself as the "primary breadwinner" in the marriage, and said her ex stayed at home with Leo and his other son from another relationship.
The 47-year-old said it was David who suggested hiring help:
"When Leo was 1, David recommended we hire Simone, an 18-year-old aspiring actress whom he mentored. She would show up in low-cut tops and miniskirts, but I thought that was just because girls are so overly sexualized in Southern California. When a friend of mine told me that she had spotted them together in the street, I assumed that they were discussing her career."
She describes their breakup:
