Happy Mother's Day to my first ever Valentine, who took me out on dates in her jeans, loafers, and preppy button down shirts. ILY to pieces Mama! Thank you for teaching me to enjoy everything life has to offer, and for sharing some of the best years of your youth with me.  I pray we are able to create more memories together that will give us even more of that lovin' feelin', not just for a few moments, but for a lifetime. The best is yet to come! Love, Tutti.  #KCLovesFamily A photo posted by KC Concepcion (@thisiskcconcepcion) on May 7, 2016 at 9:30am PDT

 

Mothers. Not only those who carried you in their wombs, gave birth to you, and raised you. Those who may not have seen you from day 1, but came at exactly the time you needed to be mothered the most... They are also Mothers. I have so much love for people like you. Thank you for taking somebody under your wing. You can impact the lives of those in need of your love, just by being truly present, encouraging, patient, kind, and persistent on providing confidence and strength. Happy Mothers Day to you all!!!  Love, KC xx A photo posted by KC Concepcion (@thisiskcconcepcion) on May 7, 2016 at 9:46am PDT

Aiza Seguerra paid tribute to mom Caring and wife Liza Diño. 

"Sa pinaka groovying nanay sa balat ng lupa, nakapaswerte ko dahil sa iyo ako binigay ni God. Lahat na yata ng alam ko, kung sino ako, lahat dahil sa iyo. Salamat sa pagtitiyaga mo kahit matigas ang ulo ko (ngayon ko lang nalaman na mas matigas ang ulo mo!). May pinagmanahan lang pala ako. Pero ok lang kasi kung sa iyo ako nagmana, then I'll be selfless, caring, super disciplinarian (patay ka Amara), mapagmahal at lahat lahat na. Thank you for everything mama. Mahal na mahal na mahal kita. You are all my superheroes combined. At yes, mas hot ka pa kay Wonder Woman. Happy mother's day mama! I love you!!!

(To the grooviest mother on earth, I am so lucky because I was given to you by God. All the things I know, who I am, is all because of you. Thank you for being patient with me even if I can be stubborn – but I just found out now that you're even more stubborn! I think I know where I got that trait. That's okay because if I got it from you, then I'll be selfless, caring, super disciplinarian (you're dead, Amara), loving, and everything else. Thank you for everything mama. I love you so much. You are all my superheroes combined. And yes, you're even hotter than Wonder Woman. Happy Mother's Day, mama! I love you!!!)

Motherhood really changes a woman. Her priorities, her goals. Halos lahat ng nagiging nanay, kinalimutan na ang kanilang goals and aspirations (and there's nothing wrong with that). But I find so much beauty in someone who can be an awesome mom pero nagagawa pa rin niyang tuparin ang mga pangarap niya sa buhay. I don't know where you get your energy to to take care of all of us AND still do the things that you love. But I guess that's why moms are considered superheroes coz you all do things mere mortals like me can never do. How you love, how you protect, how you care. If Amara grows up to be someone like you; passionate, God-fearing, maalaga (akala mo lang hindi), super smart, at 10,000% kung mag-mahal (minus the eye-rolling), then I'd know we did a good job. I'm blessed to witness how you are with Amara. Mas lalo akong na eexcite to have our little one. I can't wait. Mahal na mahal kita! Happy Mother's Day my love!
