Mother’s Day 2017 was nothing if not filled with social media posts from parents everywhere — including celebs!

Famous mamas like Hilary Duff, Gisele Bündchen, Jennifer Lopez and more got real on Instagram and Twitter, sharing snaps of themselves with their kids alongside heartfelt messages about what being a mom has meant to them.

Not absent from the mom tributes were tons of celebrity dads, like Justin Timberlake, Orlando Bloom and Thomas Rhett, expressing their gratitude to the women who helped make them fathers.

“To the multitasking moms out there making it all work #HappyMothersDay!” Nicole Richie posted a hilarious throwback snap of herself using a breast pump while holding a glass of wine (son Sparrow James Midnight is now 7½, while daughter Harlow Winter Kate is 9).

From the funny to the heartwarming to the downright tearjerkers, here are a bunch of our favorite celebrity posts from this Mother’s Day.

Our lives are made up of trillions of moments & sometimes we get lucky & capture one worth bringing to life for eternity… This is only a small part of the whole drawing(for privacy sake) but what the camera caught was the purest form of love in the world- A Mothers Love. @rashelle_stetman (incredible artist) used the photo and created a masterpiece(seen partially here) that I, in turn, gave my lovely Wife @rooeemer for Mother's Day. Sarah is the most incredible Mother I could have ever dreamed of to raise our kids with. Here is just a tiny morsel of the love she possesses as a mother. I am Blessed to spend every waking day with her. I can't thank @rashelle_stetman enough for the amazing work she did for us. A true artist. I spent the day pampering Sarah and not on my phone, thus why my Happy Mother's Day message came today instead of yesterday. To all the mothers in the world who truly love & who truly work to raise us up right- we love you all & thank you for every moment. #blessed #happymothersday #Family #Art #AMothersLove

Celeb moms got extremely honest in many of their posts about both the ups and downs of motherhood. One example? Tia Mowry, who called being a mom “one of the hardest jobs” where she’s “on the clock 24/7.”

“However, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It’s my favorite job. The joy I have when I hear mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy,” she captioned a family photo of herself, husband Cory Hardrict and their son Cree Taylor, 5½.

“I love you Cree and @coryhardrict with all my heart and I’m so happy to have this little family of mine. #happymothersday.”
