  • Every year, we dedicate the second Sunday of May to honor all mom and their incomparable love and dedication to their families. But this Mother's Day 2022, some celebrity moms turned the spotlight from them to their children.

    5 Celebrity Moms Thank Kids On Mother's Day

    Even on the day that's supposedly reserved for them, these celebrity moms can't help but still share the special moment with their kids. Read their heartwarming messages to their kids on Mother's Day below:

    1. Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio

    Smart Parenting's first-ever celebrity Editor-at-Large Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio expressed gratitude to her two sons, Philip and Manu, saying it has been her privilege to be their mother.

    In an Instagram post, the celebrity mom tells her kids, "Thank you mga anak ko sa experience of motherhood. What a privilege." Rica also says that her two boys have been instruments for her to "preserve my life, heal me, teach me."

    Likening raising a child to a "circular business," she quoted child development expert and parenting author Penelope Leach who said, "The more you give, the more you get, and the more you get, the more you feel like giving."

    By the end of her Mother's Day message, Rica credits her children for "helping me become a better person and for loving me through my processes of change." She vows "to try living long for you both as a form of giving back."


    That reminds us of that quote from the well-loved K-Drama Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha when the main character said that being a good parent means "staying healthy for a long time."

    "Out of all the responsibilities given to me this one I continue to take to heart and never tire to give it my all. I take the good, the bad, the tears, the joys, the failures, the teachings, the learnings, every challenge and savor the sweet days of rejoicing," the actress continued.
