“My beautiful family cannot thank everyone enough for the kind words since baby @bostonejdally has been born. 2 all the single mamas doing it on their own, I inspire to be you … to the fathers out there being both a mama and papa for their little ones, you’re all MVPs …. there’s more to being a parent than the person you see before you. Don’t judge each other’s parenting instead encourage each other.”

Benji Madden has posted a sweet tribute to wife and partner of six years, Cameron Diaz, 47 as she celebrates her first Mother’s Day with four-month-old daughter, Raddix.
“Best Wishes for All the Mother’s, we’re all lucky to have you. It’s special day for us this year, Forever grateful to my wife for making me a Father, and taking such good care of us everyday. Best Mom and Wife and Friend,” Benji starts the gushing Instagram post.
“Wether waking up extra early to take care of everyone (3 humans and a dozen animals) or doing all the research and reading to make sure we try our best to be good parents for our daughter, she’s a force of nature and I’m very grateful. 6 years together just get more meaningful and true love each day.
“What a blessing. For me, I think wise to remind ourselves everyday, when we have a rare special person like this in our life, not to be the foolish person who takes it for granted. Fact is, No matter what happens at work, or what the world thinks/says, Cherish the Mothers and you can’t lose. Everything else you’ll be able to figure out- Happy home is worth more than Gold. Thank G-D for Moms. Happy Mother’s Day.”
Actress Jenna Dewan welcomed her baby boy, Callum Michael Rebel Kazee, with fiance Steve Kazee, in March this year.
Callum is the first child for Jenna, 39 and Steve but the Step Up actress shares six-year-old daughter, Everly with ex-husband, Channing Tatum, who is now partnered with Jessie J.
While it’s not Jenna’s first Mother’s Day we will make an exception given the heartfelt tribute Steve made to his fiance.
“At first glance this may seem like a strange picture to choose to show my love and appreciation for you on this Mother’s Day but upon closer inspection you can see why it is the absolute perfect picture for the occasion,” he began.
“Here you are at 9pm after a long day of feeding one child and wrangling another. Here you are pumping even more milk. Here you are after two months of doing that same thing every single day. Here you are exhausted and delirious. Here you are not knowing what day it is. Here you are under a quarantine in the middle of a global pandemic. Here you are in the middle of true adversity,” he continued.
“And…here you are…smiling. Like you always do. It’s no surprise to me. This is how you do everything. You smile and you make everything around you better. You have given me the most wonderful little boy I could have ever asked for. You have given me the most amazing (soon to be) step daughter. You have kept me smiling through all of this even when I struggle the most.
“These are extraordinary times and you are a shining example for the rest of us, especially me, of what to strive for in this life. You are an incredible mother. Our children are lucky to have you. No matter what this world brings you are always ready for it. Always with grace. Always with a smile. I love you. Happy Mother’s Day!”
