For Sharon Stone, being a successful Hollywood star is practically second nature. Motherhood came just as naturally to the film legend, since she has a good instinct when it comes to parenting her three kids, Roan Bronstein, Laird Stone and Quinn Stone.
The Basic Instinct alum became a mom for the first time during her marriage with her second husband, Phil Bronstein. Sadly, the former couple — who wed in 1998 — experienced pregnancy loss when Sharon suffered two miscarriages. The Golden Globe winner and Phil didn’t let that get in the way of starting a family, though, as they sought adoption.
In 2000, Sharon and the American journalist got the word from their adoption attorney that they were becoming parents, and one week after their son’s birth that May, they welcomed Roan into their lives. Despite the overwhelming happiness over experiencing parenthood, Sharon and Phil called it quits in 2004.
The Sliver star never remarried following her divorce from the San Francisco newspaper executive, but she didn’t need a man in order to expand her family. Sharon become a single mom of three when she adopted her son Laird in 2005, followed by son Quinn in 2006.
Parenting her boys while juggling her busy work as an actress sometimes feels like a struggle for Sharon, but the Total Recall alum never takes motherhood for granted. Speaking with AARP magazine, the doting mama — who was previously married to her first spouse, Michael Greenburg, from 1984 to 1987 — said her family has pretty much become the most important thing in her life.
“I’m loving raising my kids,” she marveled to the publication in 2012. “I’ve made humanitarian causes and my children much more my priority than the Hollywood scene, being liked and getting movie parts.”
The Quick and the Dead actress is especially thankful for her sons considering “motherhood didn’t come easily,” she said in 2017 while being named Mother of the Year by the Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies. Fortunately, Sharon said, “it came lovingly to me by angels.”
“We’re a happy and lucky family,” the Oscar nominee continued. “That is the credo we stand for.”
Making memories with her kids has always remained Sharon’s top priority. The Golden Globe winner reflected on getting to spend time with her sons amid the COVID-19 pandemic during an exclusive April 2022 interview with Closer.
“Well, this has been actually a blessing of COVID, you know, is that the kids went to school online,” she said. “I was at home a majority of the time. It has just been wonderful. My kids are in their late teens and early 20s now so it’s been a time where I don’t think many parents get a lot of time with their kids or their kids are very interested in spending a lot of time with you.”
She added, “Even though they spend a lot of time in their rooms when they’re this age, and my kids spend a lot of time on computers, of course, at this age, we at least were in the house together which I thought was really kind of lucky. Normally, your kids don’t want anything to do with you at this age. So, it’s kind of great to have the opportunity to observe them growing up.”
Sharon starred in a commercial for Slotomania, the No. 1 play-for-fun and free-to-play slots game from Playtika in March 2022, marking her first-ever collaboration in the world of gaming. The Pennsylvania native was transformed into an animated superhero called Captain Slotostar for the commercial. Even with her jam-packed schedule, Sharon’s favorite role of all has been becoming a mom.
“I don’t really talk to my kids very much about my work,” she explained. “It’s much more important to me to be their mom.”
