Stars' First Mother's Day 2018
Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn

The expectant star wrote on Instagram, "When you grow up with a smile like this you are raised to find the joy in every moment. Raised to find the laughter in sometimes the most difficult circumstances and raised to share deep connections that fill our hearts with love and all the good things that nurture our soul. I know I feel the kind of freedom to love because of her. I know I feel the kind of strength to live fearlessly because of her. I know that I have never feared paving my own path because of her. I know I feel deeply unconditionally loved because of her. I also know that every mother is capable to give this to their children. She taught me that the love of mothers shape the future. Not through expectations but through love and honoring your children's individual journey. To my great teacher, Happy Mothers Day. And to all of you other great teacher out there, Happy Mothers Day."

Busy Philipps and Leigh Ann Philipps

Along with this vintage photo, the Freaks and Geeks actress wrote, "My mom is rad. She's complicated, of course, most moms are. Our relationship hasn't always been easy on either one of us but after I had Birdie I called her sobbing that I was so sorry, that I just didn't understand how much she loved me, and how hard it must have been for her, and that I hoped she forgave me for all my horribleness. I couldn't really understand though, not until I had my own baby staring at me and needing me that my mother was a person first. My mother is so many things, and I've been lucky enough to have her this whole time, so that our relationship can change and I can understand her more as a human and a woman, independent of her designation as MY MOM. But ultimately, I'm so grateful she is MY MOM because you know, obviously, I wouldn't be here typing this if she weren't."

Anne Hathaway

The Oscar winner wrote, "Happy #MothersDay to my Mom, the actress Kate McCauley Hathaway. This is a photo of her as Nellie Forbush in South Pacific. She was four months pregnant with my older brother when she played this part and did cartwheels on stage every dang night- twice on matinee days. She pursued her dreams of being an actress while raising three children before that was cool and before you got credit for it— and she hasn’t stopped. She is in rehearsal right now for “At Wit’s End” at Cape May Stage which runs May 24th- June 22nd. If you find yourself in the cutest town just south of #exitzero in NJ, you should check her out. Mama, you’re the Queen. Happy Mother’s Day xx."

"You taught me everything
Everything you've given me
I'll always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah
There isn't anything
Or anyone that I could be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side
You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were gray
Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be
What you have been to me you will always be
You will always be the girl
In my life for all times."
