Here are some of the sweetest celebrity Mother’s Day tributes on social media today. Warning: There will be feels.
Natalie Portman took time today to pay tribute to her mom who served as her Oscars date years ago. Besides being intelligent, creative, and a shining example of what a good person looks like, Portman’s mom was also kind enough to let her borrow her Oscars look and alter it for a White House Correspondents Dinner.
Quantico actress Priyanka Chopra posted a moving tribute to her mother on Sunday. The beautiful photo showed her mom enjoying a stroll on the beach with a large bouquet of roses but it’s what Chopra wrote to her mom, a message that included the promise she made her late father, that really brought the feels.
As a new mom herself, it seems Khloe Kardashian is extra grateful for the love and support her mom, Kris Jenner, has given her. That’s why she shared this fierce photo of Jenner covered in fur with the meme-referencing caption “You’re doing great, sweetie.”
Actress Reese Witherspoon shared a totally ’90s throwback photo of her mom for Mother’s Day.

Anne Hathaway gave fans a quick history lesson with her Mother’s Day post on Instagram. The actress shared a photo of her mom, actress Kate McCauley Hathaway, in her role as Nellie Forbush in South Pacific.
