Mother’s Day is a day to commemorate all the love and hard work our mothers have showered upon us to raise us into who we are today. And if you’re a mother yourself, it’s also a day where you get to enjoy the love and pampering showered upon you by your own family.
Of course, what’s an occasion if you don’t take to social media to pay your tributes? Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best celeb Instagram posts on Mother’s Day 2019. From Zoe Tay and Fann Wong to Joanne Peh, these are the celebrities who are sending all the social media love for their moms—and their kids.
Fann Wong started her Mother’s Day morning waking up to a heartfelt video made by her almost five-year-old son, Zed Lee, whom she has with husband, fellow actor Christopher Lee. The clip included past photos of the mother and son, a clip from Pixar’s Finding Dory as well as a voiceover from Zed who wished Fann a “Happy Mother’s Day Mama, I love you” and “I’m happy to give you candy. All the candy is in my house.” Lol! Fann responded to his sweet gesture with a message that ended with “I’m so blessed to be your mom”. Aww.
It was a day of double celebrations in deejay-host Jamie Yeo’s home. Not only was it Mother’s Day, it was also Rupert’s — Jamie’s husband — birthday. The happy family of four celebrated with a delicious six-course lunch at Pollen in Gardens By The Bay and finished with a delectable chocolate cake at home that she posted on her Instagram Stories.
Rupert shared a dedication on his social media account (@urbanfarmerly) too, saying “Happy #mothersday — what you do, and all do, for these rascals is staggering…thank you ! Sorry for stealing your thunder by getting a year older and grumpier!” #couplegoals
Huang Biren might have played a stern but tough-love mother on Tiger Mum (2015), but she had only love and affection for the mothers in her family.
She posted a collage on Instagram of the mothers in her life and shared a Chinese saying that likened having an elder figure in the house as having a treasure, before mentioning how fortunate and blessed she is to have three maternal figures in her life.
Kate Pang took a slightly different approach when it came to her Mother’s Day dedication. She shared an emotional message to her two children and thanked them for being her children, for being so patient and loving despite her shortcomings, for being her biggest, most ardent fans and for allowing her to celebrate the meaningful day.
Kate, who shares her kids with husband actor Andie Chen, also expressed how she’s willing to give up her life in exchange for her children’s happiness, because they’re a blessing to her and the world. We’re not tearing, you are.
Zoe Tay might have been working on Mother’s Day but she didn’t forget to post a lovely tribute to her mother on Instagram, with Zoe herself carrying her son in the background of the photo. She thanked her mother for her selfless act of love raising Zoe and her five siblings, which included getting up early to ensure that breakfast was on the table before they headed off to work and that every meal was delicious and filling, all without complaints.
Her immense love and sacrifice is their blessing, she said, adding that it pains her to see her mum with a head full of white hair. “You’re the best mum ever,” she added.
Couldn’t agree more.
Posting a series of photos that included her two daughters and mother, Vivian Lai’s message on Mother’s Day was short and sweet. She related her thoughts and feelings of becoming a mother after giving birth, pointing out that as a mother, she is not only a companion to her children.
Her children in turn, are her companions as well, and she’s no longer lonely with them around. Vivian also urged everyone to take the opportunity and express their affection to their own mothers.
Former Miss Singapore Universe-turned-actress-turned-fitness-buff Jaime Teo posted a video of her and nine-year-old daughter Renee playing the guitar and ukulele as they sang along to the nursery rhyme, Row, Row, Row Your Boat. It was a short and sweet rendition, but showed how close the pair are. Plus, they got to bond on this special day.
