The former first lady announced on Twitter that she plans for an exhibit called “Opening the White House” in her mother Marian Robinson’s honor at the Obama Presidential Center. 

The exhibit honoring Robinson “will feature a scale replica of the East Room, where we held big dinners, replicas of the Blue Room, where we decorated a huge Christmas tree for the holidays, and also a replica of the South Lawn, where we hosted garden tours and Easter egg rolls, where we did state arrivals and so much more,” Obama said.

Mrs. Obama also wished everyone a happy Mother’s Day, adding, “especially to you, Mommy. Love you.”

Honoring “all the Mommies out there” with a new celebratory Instagram post, the pop star shared a slideshow of sweet photos of her 11-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, on Sunday.

In her caption, the singer urged mothers to give themselves their flowers on their special day, and celebrate their accomplishments.

“Love yourself even more today,” Carey wrote alongside the collection of photos of herself in mommy mode. “Standing ovations and Blessings upon Blessings to all! 🦋.”

Reese Witherspoon

The Academy Award winner, 46, celebrated the holiday on Sunday in a funny video with her mother Betty, whom she quizzed about her decades-spanning acting career, including her Apple TV+ series The Morning Show.

“Happy Mother’s Day to all the unconditionally supportive Moms out there! Thinking of those who are missing theirs today,” Witherspoon captioned the post.

For the special day, Reese also received some love from her kids, sharing a photo of a sweet handwritten card from 9½-year-old son Tennessee James, whom she shares with husband Jim Toth, 51. “Happy Mother’s Day! You are the best mom ever,” he wrote.

The retired NBA player, 40, wished Union, 49, a special Sunday with a montage of photos and videos of their jet-setting adventures, set to a cover of “Glamorous” by Fergie. “To my forever date, Happy Mothers Day! We ❤️ you,” Wade captioned the post.



Kris Jenner

The Kardashians star, 66, took a stroll down memory lane and celebrated the annual Spring holiday on Sunday by reflecting on her role as a mother in a candid Instagram post.

Sharing a selection of throwback photographs of herself, her children, and her grandchildren from throughout the years, Kris began the caption of her post, writing, “Being a mother and grandmother is my greatest joy in life.”

Calling each of her six children “my purpose, my inspiration, my life, my very heart and soul!!!” the proud mom continued, “I thank God every day for making me your mom and for blessing me with so much love! I am so proud of each of you.”

Bindi Irwin

Grace Warrior‘s mom shared an adorable throwback photo of herself when she was a child with her own mom Terri Irwin for the Sunday holiday. Bindi, 23, also penned a sweet tribute to honor Terri, 57, in the Instagram caption.

“The strongest, most loving and caring woman in the world,” she wrote. “Mum, I love you more than I can possibly describe. I am forever in awe of the remarkable person you are.”

“Thank you for being my best friend from the moment I can remember,” Bindi added.

Ahead of Mother’s Day, the Golden Globe nominee, 54, paid tribute to the country icon — who died last weekend — on Friday in an essay for USA Today, which also questioned the value of mothers following the leaked draft opinion of the Supreme Court’s intention to overturn Roe v. Wade.


Kelly Ripa

The Live! with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 51, was joined by her three children Friday for a special Mother’s Day episode of the daytime talk show, in which she quizzed them during a game called “Who Knows Mom Best?”

“Bring your chickens to work day!” Ripa captioned a photo of herself holding a bouquet as she posed with sons Michael, 24, Joaquin, 19, and daughter Lola, 20.

She shared more images of them on set on her Instagram Story. “The chickens together for a limited engagement,” she wrote, adding: “The band is back together.”


Lisa Rinna

On Instagram Friday, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star opened up about preparing to commemorate the holiday for the first time without her mom, Lois.

Lois died in November 2021, days after suffering a stroke. She was 93.

In her post, Rinna, 50, shared a meme of the mother-daughter duo emoting the “same energy” from separate moments on RHOBH.

“I was feeling a sense of dread and I couldn’t figure out why,” wrote Rinna, who shares daughters Amelia Gray Hamlin and Delilah Belle Hamlin with husband Harry Hamlin. “And then I realized that this will be the first Mother’s Day without Lois. Gonna be hard. 💔.”

While chatting with PEOPLE about her partnership with Mrs. T’s Pierogies for the second year of its Mrs. T’s All-Star Moms campaign, the 36-year-old former Bachelor star also opened up about Mother’s Day plans, and how her husband Sean Lowe always makes the holiday extra special.

“I am pretty low-key when it comes to my own celebration,” Catherine told PEOPLE exclusively. “I just love spending time with my children.”

Noting that “some flowers and my kids” are all she needs to make the annual affair special, the mother of three added, however, that “a handwritten card” is something she cherishes deeply.

“Usually, Daddy writes them, so then it’s really just a card from Daddy, which I like too, but with their little hands on them, or them trying to write their name, which is very, very sweet,” she said. “These moments are very fun … Spending the day and just being together is my ideal Mother’s Day.”


Wynonna Judd

The 57-year-old singer, who performed with her mom in the iconic country duo The Judds, shared a throwback photo of Naomi alongside younger sister Ashley Judd on Sunday. Naomi died last weekend at the age of 76.

In the summery shot, Naomi, red hair perfectly blown out as usual, snuggles Wynonna with one arm while holding little Ashley in the other.

“I miss her,” Wynonna captioned the shot.


Halle Berry

The Academy Award winner, 55, paid tribute Sunday to her 5th grade teacher Yvonne Sims, whom she explained has been like a second mother to her, sharing photos of the two of them along with a sweet note on Instagram.

“On Mother’s Day, not only do I reflect on what it truly means to be a mother — and the importance of a mother’s love — I also reflect on what it means to receive love from a mother and sometimes that love comes from ‘another mother,'” she wrote in the caption.

“Yvonne Sims has been my ‘Other Mother’ since she was my 5th grade teacher. Without her guidance, wisdom, patience and most importantly, her UNCONDITIONAL love for me in all the stages of my life, I’m not so sure I’d still be here,” Berry added. “I love you, Yvonne Sims with all my heart! Today, as we celebrate mothers, let’s also celebrate our ‘OTHER MOTHERS!’ Happy Mother’s Day!”


Odetta and Dave Annable

On Sunday, the couple announced on Instagram that they are expecting their second child with a black-and-white video of their daughter Charlie Mae, 6, being surprised with the news.

“I guess it’s not traditional to give your kid a gift on Mother’s Day. *Exceptions do apply,” wrote Dave, 42, in the caption of his post. “What a beautiful way to celebrate @odetteannable, the soon to be mama of 2. We certainly know Charlie is excited.”

Odette, 36, called it “a very special Mother’s Day indeed” in the caption of her own post.

“It’s been a very long journey to get here,” the actress wrote, “but we are here and we are thrilled and couldn’t be more grateful. A new chapter begins.”

In honor of Mother’s Day on Sunday, Wilson and Scott came together to drop a music video for their song titled “Mamas,” which is premiering exclusively with PEOPLE on Wednesday — and they’re each singing it from different perspectives.

“I am so thankful that PEOPLE is doing an exclusive premiere for my brand new music video ‘Mamas’ featuring Hillary Scott,” Wilson told PEOPLE. “This song is so special to me. I hope it impacts you this week as we head towards Mother’s Day❤️.”

Jonas, 29, reflected on welcoming his little one into the world earlier this year in the caption of his post, while also celebrating Chopra on her first Mother’s Day as a mom.

“On this Mother’s Day we can’t help but reflect on these last few months and the rollercoaster we’ve been on, which we now know, so many people have also experienced,” he said, before revealing, “after 100 plus days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home.”
