She went on to celebrate her own mother, thanking her for being a great role model. “Today I definitely focused on my gratitude for my mom, who did and does so much to teach me not THAT the seemingly impossible is possible, but HOW. She taught me to break the mountain down into step after step. I hope I can teach the same invaluable lesson.”

Christensen, 35, also thanked Shane for being part of her life, writing, “And now a moment of gratitude to my girl for swooping in and bringing her infectious joy and curiosity into our family, and for helping me learn how to be a mama.”

“Happy Mother’s Day to all the teachers and lovers and leaders who are helping wear that mother hat whether they even realize it or not. #mothersday,” she concluded her message, which was met with comments from fans like “Beautiful and raw” and “A beautiful depiction of motherhood.”
