From making flower arrangements, to simply squeezing their family members and sending sweet messages, Sunday was all about Mother’s Day for many celebrities.
Stars took to social media to share photos of their children, mothers and grandmothers to honor the holiday, from throwbacks — including a bathtub photo — to day-of snaps.
Jason Derulo celebrated by looking back at a Jamaican birthday celebration he threw for his mom. Hoda Kotb kept it cozy, snuggling with daughter Haley Joy in pajamas.
And Kris Jenner came up with two throwback photo grids, wishing her mother, MJ, a happy mother’s day, including a throwback photo where Jenner’s hair is unrecognizable.
Additionally, the Property Brothers, JoJo Fletcher, Nikki Bella and more recently stopped by the PEOPLE Now studios and had the chance to make their affections for their moms public — making the rest of us look bad (we kid!).
