"I'll spend the day celebrating with my family by spending time with my son and husband, and this year I will have my own mama with me!" she exclusively told E! News. "Truly being around the people I love is all I need for the picture-perfect Mother's Day."

"Motherhood is beautiful but can also be messy and demanding," she said before recommending a special OLAY gift set that contains her go-to products. "Now that I am a mom, the best gift I could imagine is something that allows me to treat myself. I have realized self-care is more important than ever, and I think most moms will agree!"

Last Mother's Day, Emmy Rossum was in the final days of her pregnancy. Now, the Shameless alum is celebrating the 2022 holiday for the first time as a mom.

On May 8, Emmy shared on Instagram a photo of her and husband Sam Esmail's 11-month-old daughter playing in a yard, as well as throwback pics of the child finger painting and crawling near a baby activity gym and Christmas tree.
