13 Celebs Parents Who Are All About Their Nannies And 6 Who Avoid The Subject

Having a nanny, if not multiple, is pretty much a given in most celeb circles.

That said, some celebrities embrace and celebrate the help they get while others don't acknowledge them much.

For some, it's a matter of privacy. For others, it ends up being a scandal. Let's see where some of our favorite celebrity parents fall.
