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).

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.”
