If you dislike mushy and sentimental things, avoiding Instagram would have been a great idea yesterday.
Celebrities poured out tributes in honour of Mother’s Day through photos, videos and speeches, and it’s truly tear-jerking.
New mommy Tessanne Chin dedicated the day to her three-month-old daughter and opened up about her emotional journey to conceiving.
“My Zai, thank you my sweet girl for making me a mummy,” Chin started. “You are the result of many, many prayers, and I won’t lie, tears and frustration too. This day used to bring up quite a few emotions for me and I longed to be able to celebrate it with you. You were worth the wait my Dove and I am eternally grateful to the Almighty for blessing me with you. You are the joy of my life, the beat of my heart and I pray every day I am worthy of this incredible honor that has been given to me to be your mum. I love you my precious girl, from the moment you were just two lines on a stick, the moment I first saw a heartbeat or felt you move in my tummy, the moment I first held you in my arms and every moment since, in this life and all other dimensions, I love you,” her post said in part.
Alyshia Powell, wife of Olympian Asafa Powell, also celebrated her first Mother’s Day.
“Want to wish the women in my life, my mom and my wife Alyshia Miller, who is celebrating her first Mother’s Day… a big Happy Mother’s Day,” Powell expressed.
Singer Romain Virgo also wished his wife, with whom he welcomed twins in January, a memorable day.
“When I reflect on your journey to where you are now, all I can do is give thanks and praise to the Almighty,” he said. “Our little princesses are so blessed to call you their mother and I’m so blessed to call you my Queen. I hope you will enjoy this day and every other day that follows on this beautiful journey called motherhood. Happy Mother’s Day!!! We love you Elizabeth.”
Since quarantine has the world staying indoors and spas closed, Wayne Marshall got creative and employed son Atlas to treat mom, Tami Chin, to a day of relaxation.
“Mommy got a gift certificate to ‘Atlas Hair Salon and Spa’ for Mother’s Day,” he said. “You deserve all the pampering today. You’re a boss mom. We appreciate you today and everyday. And yes, I am cooking breakfast for you by myself today,” he said in reference to an ongoing dare by followers of the couple to have Marshall cook something, anything!
Ce’Cile shared throwback photos with her daughter (fathered by Christopher Martin), beautifully captioned, “I try to always be there, I hope to always be there and I hope she will say my mommy is always there.”
Other celebrities like Jahvillani, Kemar Highcon, Marlon Samuels, Shaggy, Aidonia, Mavado, D’Angel, Alaine and Beenie Man also shared posts.
Meanwhile, Macka Diamond, whose son lives overseas, spent her day issuing care packages to moms through her newly established Pregnant Mothers in Need Foundation.
“One of the best days of my life. Me and my team out and handing out care packages to pregnant moms, they were happy to see me.”
