A study of over 1200 Brits reveals the top 10 ‘best loved’ celebrity parents. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie topped the poll with 78% of those asked agreeing they are the most admired celebrity mum and dad.

The UK’s leading discount and voucher code website asked 1,287 people across the UK the multi-answer question ‘Which of the celebrity parents do you admire the most?’ The poll revealed that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are the most loved celebrity mum and dad with 78% of those asked agreeing.

The research, commissioned by http://www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, also found that 23% of those asked admired a celebrity more if they have a child, however 46% claim having a child makes no difference.

According the study conducted by http://www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk the top 10 ‘best loved’ celebrity parents are:

  1. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – 78%
  2. David and Victoria Beckham – 74%
  3. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale – 67%

  9. Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas – 49%
  10. Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn – 47%

When asked ‘Why do you respect and admire these parents?’ more than 1 in 5, 22%, agreed it was Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s ‘charitable work’ while 31% said their ‘commitment to each other’ was the main reason. 18% admire Jamie and Louise Redknapp because of their ‘sense of fun’.

David and Victoria Beckham were voted by 74% of those polled as the most loved celebrity parents.  Only 13% thought New York parents Sarah-Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick were one of the most loved celebrity couples with children and 3% thought Dawn French and Lenny Henry made ‘supportive’ parents.

Previous research commissioned by http://www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk named Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ daughter Suri as the best dress celebrity child. However, only 51% think that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are one of the ‘most loved’ celebrity couples with children.

Matthew Clifton, parenting expert at http://www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, commented on the findings;

“I wasn’t shocked to see that people admire a celebrity if they have a child. I imagine juggling such a busy schedule and having children to tend too is tough, but all of the top 10 do it brilliantly. I agree with the results that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are the most celebrity loved parents.

He continues,

“At MyVoucherCodes.co.uk there are loads of great discount codes and deals for parents and their children. Such as money off the latest kid’s toys and children’s wear as well as great offers for parents including high street fashion and family days out.
