Being a mom can be tough, but being a single mom? Forget about it. Every parent knows that raising a child takes a village, but some moms have found themselves having to raise their babies all on their own. While it might have its challenges, single moms somehow find the strength to not only provide for their kids but also parent them and show them the motherly love all children deserve. 

Many celebrities in Hollywood have also found themselves in a situation where they are single parents--whether it was by choice or due to life's circumstances, like Khloé Kardashian. These stars have raised their kids all on their own, without the continuous support that a two-parent household usually provides--and they've done it so well.
