Here’s How Mariah Carey, Gabrielle Union and Others Spent Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day brought out a ton of heartwarming tributes on Instagram and Twitter. An outpouring of warmth and gratitude dominated social media on Sunday, and everyone from Michelle Obama to Gabrielle Union to Reese Witherspoon participated in sharing the sweetness.

Just try not to tear up reading these tender messages of adoration and recognition!

Mariah Carey wished “all the mommies in the land” a beautiful day full of love, and expressed her gratitude for being a mom.

Kris Jenner posted a montage of her daughters, and thanked her own mother, MJ.

First-time mom Gabrielle Union revealed she’s still in disbelief that her daughter Kaavia James is actually here. Look at that face!

Michelle Obama inspired with a post about her mom always being there for her, saying, “She allowed me to think for myself and develop my own voice.”

Growing up, every time I’d come home from school with a story to share, my mother was there with a snack and a listening ear to hear about what was on my mind. When I came home with a tale about my disastrous second-grade classroom, she marched into the school to figure out what was going on. And as I grew older, including up through my years as First Lady, she was always there for me as a guiding light through whatever fog was clouding my path. She’s always listened more than she lectured; observed more than she demonstrated. In doing so, she allowed me to think for myself and develop my own voice. From an early age, she saw that I had a flame inside me, and she never tempered it. She made sure that I could keep it lit. Mom, thank you for kindling that fire within me, and for your example as a mother and a grandmother to our girls. We would never be who we are today without you. #HappyMothersDay, Mom. Love you. ❤️

Reese Witherspoon thanked her mom for not only laughing at her stupid jokes, but for being her best friend.

“Motherhood has changed me forever,” Angela Simmons wrote.

Tamera shared a sweet family photo. “Parenting can be blissfully exhausting 🤣 But that just means you’re doing it right. You’re hands on, attentive, and determined to make sure your children are great additions to our world. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there.

Loni celebrated the woman who taught her how to drink without getting a hangover!

“There is beauty in simplicity. Said not a damn person who's met #MamaMai,” Jeannie wrote. “No matter how many makeovers I've done, the person least likely to spoil themselves are Moms.”
