Every second Sunday of May of each year is a red-letter day for all moms. They are showered with extra love not just by their kids but also their husbands and partners. On May 9, 2021, tributes poured on social media, and these were some of most kilig made by celebrity dads.
Actor-entrepreneur Dingdong Dantes gave a short but sweet shout-out to his wife and fellow GMA-7 top star, Marian Rivera on behalf of their kids Zia and Ziggy. He also made a reference to Marian's 2017 fantasy-drama series, Super Ma'am.
Dingdong said in the caption, "To our home’s Super Ma’am...We love you!"
He said of the mother of their baby girl Avianna Celeste, "Today love, I want to greet your on your first Mother's Day. I want to congratulate you on how you've been discovering yourself through this new role. You amaze me every single day in our journey together.
"Always remember, love, we are lifetime bestfriends so you can always count on me. Don't ever forget na I'm your panganay, ha! Happy First Mother’s Day, love!"
He said in the caption, "To you my love, it’s been an honour watching you grow into the amazing mother you are now. Jude doesn’t know how loved he is by you, and you don’t know how much you are loved by me."
He said, "Happy Mother’s Day to our SuperMom who can give everyone a bath all at the same time! Minsan kasama nako dun. Love you."
He said of the mother of their kids Kendra, Scarlett, and Gavin: "Who would have known that becoming a mommy was your biggest calling. To my partner, best friend and the mother of my kids. I love you more every day."
Doug added, "An advice I always remember: 'The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.'
Sportscaster Mark Zambrano greeted his wife Aicelle Santos, a singer and theater actress, on behalf of their baby girl Zendrine.
He said, "It's your day today, Mommy A! But Zandrine & I will try to make it Mother's Day everyday! Mahal na mahal ka namin, mommy! We hope you're happy on your first legit Mother's Day!!"
He said, "To the love of my life, my awesome and wonderful wife, Happy Mother’s Day! Joaquin & I are truly blessed to have you in our lives. Thank you for all your sacrifices for us. I am so proud of you and I am most certain that our Mamas in Heaven (Mommy Vicky & Mama Beth) are, too.
"We love you so much our Queen, always & forever. You mean the world to Joaquin and I. Let’s celebrate later."
He said, "Happy Mother’s Day, my love. Sobrang thankful ako na ikaw ang napangasawa ko. Napakabuti mong tao at ina. I love you."
He said, "To the strongest, most understanding, patient, crazy, sweet, loving, sexy and caring new mom in the world. Happy 1st Mother’s Day! You are an amazing mom, the aches and pains you feel daily cause of our heavy boy is sooooo appreciated by us, my love."
"Thank you for the sacrifices you have made for our family. We love you so so so much! And to all the other moms out there, may God bless y’all even more and give you the joy and rest you deserve on this special day."
He narrated in the caption, "Matagal ko nang gusto ipost yung pic na 'to, pero na-isip ko isabay na lang sa Mothers Day para isang isipan nalang ng caption hehe! Anyway, bago matapos yung araw na 'to, gusto ko lang magpasalamat sa iyo.
"Thanks for everything, asawa ko...for changing my path, for fixing my life, and for everything that we have now. Because of you, I am exactly where I want to be in life. Happy Mothers Day, Ms.Neri!!! Sorry di ko na-post before midnyt...Nakatulog ako, eh."
