Hi, George Virginia!
Although The Walking Dead star couldn’t be there in person during the day, he made up for it with a heartfelt photo and beautiful caption dedicated to the mom of two. (The couple also share son Augustus “Gus,” 8.)
In the photo, Burton is cuddling baby George. Morgan raved, “Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there. But to this mama … on behalf of myself, gus, and George … we all want to thank you.”
“With every ounce of who we all are … for being the best mom in the whole world,” he continued. “For making our lives the best, and most special they could be. You’ve created and molded the family I figured I could only dream of … I figured wrong.”
