With Mother’s Day coming this weekend, Working Mother unveiled its annual Most Powerful Mums list. The 50-member club includes a very prominent handful indeed from various sectors of work, with Beyoncé, Victoria Beckham and Madonna leading the entertainment field.

Beyoncé, of course, is known for her already-famous two-year old daughter Blue Ivy Carter, in addition to dropping surprise landmark albums and many other conquests. Victoria Beckham, outside of her burgeoning fashion empire that is well-respected by power players in the industry, has three sons Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and daughter Harper. The Queen of Pop Madonna, who needs no further introduction, continues to push the boundaries with the release of her thirteenth studio album Rebel Heart—all while juggling a family of four kids.

And on the subject of famous offspring of heavy-hitters, North West’s mum, Kim Kardashian makes her second appearance at the Top 50 honouree. The list is unranked, so very deservedly, all 50 ladies appear on common ground in the yearly celebration.
