Local celebs’ Mother’s Day 2019 tributes

While we believe that mums should be shown love every single day of the year, yesterday (May 12) - a.k.a. Mother’s Day - was a good chance for everyone to make public declarations of affection and appreciation to the selfless (s)heroes in their lives on social media. Read on to see how some local celebs paid tribute...

Fann had the pleasure of waking up to this sweet video with a voice recording by her son Zed declaring just how much he loves her. Warning: this boy has quite the set of lungs on him, so you might want to listen to the clip with earphones on a low volume.

Desmond has been flying between Singapore and Taiwan a lot lately to film All is Well, but that certainly didn’t stop him from making Mother’s Day plans with his mama. “Thank you for patiently waiting for me at the airport to have your mother's day dinner together!” he wrote. “This reminds me of those primary school days when you waited for me outside of the school to bring me home.

Behind this lovely family photo was a hilarious anecdote and an encouraging message from the singer: “My second Mother’s Day and we challenged ourselves by bringing Momo to a black-tie wedding... he ran down the aisle right before the second march in and I had to chase after him[.] To all moms out there... hang in there! (sic)” No wonder the little man looks so pleased with himself!

The Sam Willows crooner saluted both his biological mother (who passed away when he was 12) and his stepmother in his lengthy, touching post pointing out each of their unique strengths.

“She showed me that there was no greater privilege in the world than to love, even if not returned. She also taught me to not be selfish about music—always think about why, and for whom”, he wrote about the former, adding that the latter “shows me a spirit of excellence and how to fight against [his] darker emotions”.
