An oft-quoted adage says that behind the success of every man is a woman. And, apparently, this is also true to our favorite celebrities who have their doting and ever-supportive moms to guide and accompany them every step of the way – from those times they were just dreaming to make it in the industry, up to the present that they’re among the brightest stars in the country.

While we tend to only see them as their famous children’s special guests in the TV guestings and performances, social media have allowed us to see a further glimpse of their adorable connection behind the camera. And in this Kapamilya Snaps feature, let us take a look on some of the most endearing bonding moments of our favorite stars with their beloved non-showbiz moms!

Kathryn Bernardo and her Mommy Min

Throughout her 20 years in the local entertainment scene, Kathryn has her Mommy Min by her side. In her exclusive interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda,she revealed that their whole family, especially their mom, had to sacrifice a lot in order for to continue with her showbiz journey. And all the time and effort they invested on her have paid off for the 2 Good 2 Be True leading lady is now on of the biggest stars in the country, not to mention that she’s the Asia’s Superstar.

Aside from her acting career, Mommy Min is also supportive of her other endeavors, such as having her own house, studio, and even a resort! And apart from being her number 1 fan and chaperone, she is also Kath’s fave beauty salon and travel buddy.

Julia Montes and her two mothers, Lola Flory and Mama Gemma

Julia is really lucky to not only have one, but two mommas in her life – her Mama Gemma and her Lola Flory. Since her mom is deaf, it was her grandma who raised her and accompanied her every time she had tapings and other commitments. And their family’s plight is what inspired the Kapamilya actress to work hard at a young age.

Now that she’s an adult, the FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actress makes sure to spend quality time with both of them – from simply taking them to dates to bringing them to quick getaways. 

Jane De Leon and her Mommy Marie

Before clinching the coveted title role in Mars Ravelo’s Darna, Jane already has her own superheroine – her Mommy Marie. And she’s been very proud to tell the world how much she loves her mom by sharing photos of them together, to which she never fails to attach sappy captions. She wrote in one of her posts, “I’ll do everything for you & you know how much I love you.”

Whenever she has free time in her hectic schedule, the modern day Darna apparently enjoys spending time with her family, especially with her mommy.

Ivana Alawi and her Mama Fatima

Aside from her mesmerizing splendor, another thing that we love about Ivana is her innate sense of humor and kind heart, which she apparently got from their mom, Fatima. Being featured in the vlogs of the A Family Affair leading lady has indeed made her an internet superstar, with netizens and her children fondly calling her “Mama Alawi”.

Through those vlogs, we’re able to see how tightly bonded their family is, as Ivana and her siblings would tag her along in some of the pranks and challenges that they would do. Besides, all of them are never shy to tell her how much they love her, especially when they celebrated her birthday recently.

Andrea Brillantes and Mommy Belle

Aside from taking good care of her, Andrea also owes her dedicated Mommy Belle for helping her establish a successful career in showbiz. In fact, she confessed in a Magandang Buhay guesting that she actually prayed to have a daughter who would become an actress – and it was granted.

Whenever Andrea isn’t busy with work, the mother-and-daughter tandem enjoys spending time with one another, may it be in running errands, doing skincare or makeup, or going on a vacation.

Alexa Ilacad and her Mommy Divina

She may have gone through a lot of personal struggles, but Alexa has never been alone in facing those challenges and attaining her dreams because she has her ever-supportive and lovable Mommy Divina by her side.

We may not see them much on social media or on TV together, but we’re able to finally get a glimpse of their beautiful bond through the Goin’ Bulilit alumna’s latest vlog titled “Who Knows Me Better”, wherein she’s pitted against her loveteam partner and rumored boyfriend KD Estrada.

Maymay Entrata and her Mama Lorna

Just like other kids, Maymay grew up under the care of her grandparents while her mom, Lorna, worked in Japan. Even though they lived miles away from each other, her love for her mother never wavered as she never fails to greet her on special occasions and even bought her a house in Japan.

For her 50th birthday last January, the ASAP Natin ‘To mainstay expressed her gratitude and admiration to her Mama by posting a snap of them together from one of their trips together and writing a lengthy caption in Bisaya.

Barbie Imperial and Mama Bing

She may appear tough, but Barbie is actually a softie when it comes to her family, especially her Mommy Bing. Barbie has been open in expressing her love for her through her social media posts in the previous years.

In 2019, she revealed in a Magandang Buhay interview that’s she was finally able to buy a house for her here in Manila, after living for a long time along the railway tracks of Philippine National Railway in Daraga, Albay. This has indeed allowed them to spend more time together since they’re now near each other.

Anne Curtis and her Mama Carmen

There’s definitely no doubt that Anne is one of the most beautiful faces in the local entertainment scene. And, apparently, she got her enthralling splendor from her gorgeous Mama Carmen, who she loves to tag along in her concerts and trips here and abroad.

While she’s been thankful to her ever since, the It’s Showtime host appreciates her more now that she is also a mom herself. Apart from simply showing it through her social media, she dedicated her Magpasikat 2022” comeback entry, which highlighted a mother’s love, to her since her team’s performance day coincided with her Mommy Carmen’s birthday celebration.

Vice Ganda and Nanay Rosario

Throughout his showbiz career, we’ve indeed heard a lot of stories about Nanay Rosario as she fondly shares stories about her, and sometimes even make her a subject of his jokes.

The It’s Showtime and Everybody Sing host and his siblings grew up with their mother not by their side as she went to the United States to work after the tragic death of their father. Thus, as his way of giving back to her, she works hard to give her a happy life for all the sacrifices that she’d made through the years.

These celebrities are reminders for us to always show our moms lots of love and make them feel like it’s Mother’s Day every day!
