Yesterday (May 8) was Mother’s Day and everyone, including some of our favorite celebrities, found a way to give the extraordinary women in their life a little bit of shine:
Tyra Banks, being a first time mom, enjoys motherhood and spends the day with her baby and mother:
John Legend celebrates his wife Chrissy and their newborn son.
Kanye West finds an old necklace belonging to his late mother Donda and tweets out a simple, but heartfelt message.
Found this in Mom's storage. I love and miss you. pic.twitter.com/5EYVY5HGLj

But, in typical Kanye West fashion, he manages to wake Kim up with the most romantic gifts we’ve seen: a mini orchestra playing in their living room…
Followed by a bench of flowers. Super cute
Empire’s Taraji P. Henson surprises her mom and gets the sweetest, most genuine reaction:
Justin Timberlake calls his wife a M.I.L.F. and let’s her know she deserves the best day:
Solange talks about hearing her son’s heartbeat for the first time…
I was 17 when I first heard this boys heartbeat. I knew I wasn't gonna have it all figured out, but I knew I was gonna love him hard, put him first, and show him the world as I knew it. When he was 3 weeks old, we moved to the country, a small town in Idaho to be exact, and I got to know this lil special baby so well and feel the rhythm of motherhood… my own way, my own terms. 11 years later, my favorite thing to be called in the whole wide world is "Mom". What an honor in life to be chosen to be his. Happy Mother's Day to alllll da mommas out there, doing it their way, raising our future kings and queens. Salute you! All of you.
In another post, she also praises her own mother, which brought Ms. Tina to tears:
And one mo of @mstinalawson because she left the blueprint. Strong, smart, free, independent, humble, generous, graceful, kind, hard working, creative, funny and most importantly LOVING. Always showed us the power in having a vision. Grew up with not much at all, 6 sisters and brothers in a 2 bedroom house. Didn't have a degree, but ALWAYS the smartest sharpest woman in the room. Started a business in her garage and turned it into a lil empire, a space for women to feel empowered and beautiful. My sisters and I had a spare room in the salon, because you refused to have someone else raising us. Came to work with you every day and got to see the power of having a vision and working hard as hell to see it come to life. Had such an incredible tribe of women (Vernell, Cheryl, Angie,) around also showing us the power of being loving, hardworking, graceful women and mothers. Always gave us freedom and learned that me and my sisters were all different and had different needs, so took us to 3 different schools every day. Let me wear my crazy ass outfits and loud tap shoes to places, when I know sometimes people told you you should make me change. Let me blast my crazy music when I know sometimes you just wanted a quiet house. When I wanted to start petitions, or speak to the principle about issues, you were always right beside me. When I wanted to shoot a video in South Africa and didn't have a budget, you were right there with me being the assistant, assistant, director and let me use alllll your miles for plane tickets. All of that only for me to grow up and hear stories and find out I was just being a little Tina, lol. I didn't even mean to write this all, I've already talked to you twice but daaaaaaaaannng Tina, back at it again with the bomb bomb mommy hood.
Zoe Kravitz wishes Queen Lisa Bonet a Happy Mother’s Day:
And Diddy showed love to all three of his beautiful baby mothers:
Misa I wanted to take the time out to thank you for all that you have done for Justin and for me. You're one of the most strongest intelligent beautiful kindest women that I know. I thank God for you. I thank God that you are the mother of my first child justin. Today we honor you. Happy Mother's Day. Love forever
No matter how you showed the mother or mother figure in your life how much they’re appreciated, I hope that everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day!
