Many celebrity mums have shared their well-wishes from their children on Mothering Sunday, as well as personal photos and messages for their own mums.
Former Spice Girl Geri Horner posted a picture of herself cuddling her baby son Monty – who was born in January – on her Instagram page and thanked her own mother.
The singer wrote: “Happy Mother’s Day Everyone. To my own mother who worked so tirelessly to look after us, who taught me so much, and helps me with my own children.
“Mothering comes in all different ways; you who have mothered your friend’s children, your brothers, sisters, friends, your dogs, your old lonely neighbour, partners, your boyfriend, of course your husband.
“We can’t help it, with or without children we can’t help but mother – we care, we worry, we nag, we kiss and we love. It’s what we are ITS WHAT WE DO – We’re just made that way – keeping everyone together.”
Geri is married to F1 boss Christian Horner and the pair welcomed Monty in January. She also has daughter Bluebell from a previous relationship.
