Celebrities have one thing in common with us – they all have a mom or mother figure they look up to, or are moms themselves.
… And that’s exactly what we found out at our Mother’s Day shoot:
Here are some wise and inspiring words from a few familiar faces:
“My mom is my lioness. Every day she teaches me. She is my strength, my support and the woman I aspire to be. Love you Mummy!” – Minnie Dlamini, SoccerZone presenter
“I’m blessed to have a mom and a grandmom in my life. Mom teaches and has taught me to be a resilient fighter and to know that I can achieve anything I set my mind to to. Gran is my pillar, my bestie and my superhero. She keeps me in her prayers and I believe that her faith has carried me and my family from strength to strength.” – Liesl Laurie, former Miss SA
“Of all the roles I play in my life, the role of being a parent is the most important one. I don’t mind if I fail at anything else, but I don’t ever want to fail my child by not being a good mother. To all the mothers in South Africa, my wish is for you to live to see your children grow up.” – Karen Zoid, coach on DStv’s The Voice SA
“Mother’s Day is big in my family, my mom passed away 7 years ago so this is the day we spend with family. We reflect and reminisce on the good old days. I will probably spend the day with family and celebrate each other as my sisters and I are all mothers.” – Thembisa Mdoda host of DStv’s Our Perfect Wedding
