  Who would you want as a celeb parent?
Updated 09 June 2003, 10.59
Celeb parents vote
David Beckham is on track to win the best celebrity dad award.

And Melinda Messenger has already won a prize for being top showbiz mum.

But who would you pick for a celeb parent if you could?

Would it be Becks to spend money on you and teach you to play football, or maybe Britney to sing you to sleep each night?

opening quoteI would like Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne as my parents they are so cool.closing quote
Vicky, 13, Burntwood

opening quoteI would want Bradley S Club as a dad cos then I could meet Jon and swoon over him. I would also want Tina S Club as a mother cos she is so stylish and she has dance movesclosing quote
Jacklyn, 12, Toronto

opening quoteI would like Alfie Moon to be my dad coz he is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo funny and if he and Kat got together she would be spending a lot of time around me!!closing quote
Loz, 11, Stanmore

opening quoteEither Kelly Slater or Cory Lopez because I would be able to go on the beach with them everyday and go surfing!closing quote
Flick, 15, Sussex

opening quoteI would like Rachel Stevens from S Club to be my parent because she is really cool, and we would have lots of fun together!closing quote
Natalie, 15, Plymouth

opening quoteI wouldn't want a celeb parent as you would never see them and you wouldn't really have a normal life. I wouldn't mind having Busted as friends though!closing quote
Louise, 14, Kent

opening quoteI'd like Justin Timberlake as my celeb parent. Then he can show me how to dance like him. But given the choice between him and my real parents I'd choose my real parents.closing quote
Deniz, 13, London

opening quoteIf I could have any celeb parent, it would have to be Sarah Michelle Gellar. She's smart, cool, fun, rich, pretty, nice, married to Freddie Prinze Jr and has cute pets!!!!closing quote
Becky, 13, Carelton

opening quoteI don't need famous relatives - my own parents and twin are all I want. closing quote
Madelyn, 10, St Ives

opening quoteWell, it would have to be James Stewart (father) and Marilyn Monroe (mother). Apart from the parents I'm already booked in with I can't imagine anyone more exciting and interesting!closing quote
Jessica, 14, Bristol

opening quoteEven though it would be quite cool to have celeb parents, I would rather have my own because to me they r celebs. My dad is always playing and having water fights with me and my mum does not work so she is always at home.
If u had celebs as parents, then u would not be able to have any pets, coz nobody would be there to look after them.

opening quoteI think that I would rather keep my own mum and dad. Sure I am annoyed with them sometimes, but I love dem really!

opening quoteI would choose Eminem to be my celebrity parent, I already look like him, and he could introduce me to all the other rappers like Dr.Dre and D12. Also touring with him would be cool and he could teach me how to freestyle and rap.closing quote
Rabbit, 13, Telford

opening quoteI would hate to have a celeb parent, 'cos you wouldn't be able to have a proper life, like normal kids, and you'd end up being like Michael Jackson's kids and have to wear masks all the time. I'd rather live with my family and be able to see them all the time, than have a celeb mum or dad and they'd always be really busy.closing quote
