British Moms Spend A Lot Of Money To Be Like Famous Moms

"I'm not a regular mom, I'm a famous mom." And it can get expensive

Moms in the UK are going HAM trying to keep up with the Kardashians. According to the Daily Mail, a recent study has revealed that mothers in the UK are spending upwards of $268 million trying to live the celebrity parent life.

A third of moms asked admitted that they'd bought items endorsed by a celebrity parent over the past year, spending an average of 73 GPB. The most popular items? Children's clothing designed by celebrities, a star's post-pregnancy workout DVD, and celebrity parenting guides.

19% of moms surveyed also said that they dressed their kids like celebrty kids. (Sure!)

As for the most influential celebrity parents: the Beckhams take the cake with 76% of British parenting paying attention to them, followed by Prince William and Kate Middleton, then Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. (Kim and Kanye made top six, don't worry.)

And hey: emulating a celebrity is fine, but let's dial it down -- no one needs to break the bank trying to be a famous.
