The Celebrations: Mother's Day with South Africa's Stars

Every year, South Africa joins the world in showering our mothers with love and appreciation. It's a day to reflect on the incredible strength and dedication our moms show every single day, not just for us, but for the generations to come. And guess what? Our favourite celebrities are no different!


Mothers Day

We're so used to seeing our stars' polished and glamorous side on social media, but Mother's Day brings a heartwarming change. Celebrities are sharing heartfelt tributes to the amazing women they cherish every day.


Here, we take a look at the touching ways your favourite South African personalities and sporting heroes are marking this special occasion. While Mother's Day is celebrated on the many different days globally, here in Mzansi, we celebrate it on the second Sunday of May. Scroll on to see the emotional messages and family photos.
