List of Famous Teenage Mothers ranked by fame and popularity. Long before MTV had its hit show “Teen Mom” famous women were becoming young mothers. Some women got married at a young age, so naturally pregnancies followed, while others were a bit more surprised by their pregnancies. Being a teen mom, doesn't mean that you can't have a successful career.

Who is the most famous teenage mother? Sofia Vergara tops our list. The “Modern Family” actress gave birth to her son Manolo when she was only 19. Vergara, now 40, froze her eggs so that she can have a child with her boyfriend Nick Loeb. She will be using a surrogate mother because Vergara underwent radiation treatment for thyroid cancer. Other actresses who were teen moms include Roseanne Barr, Shirley Temple and Keisha Castle-Hughes.

Many famous musicians were also teen moms. Country singer Loretta Lynn was married when she was just 15 and she quickly became pregnant. By the time Lynn was 19, she already had three children. Aretha Franklin, Naomi Judd and Fantasia were also teen moms.

How do you think these famous women were able to balance a career and their families? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
