Also paying tribute to his own mom, the hunky actor says in a Instagram Stories video, ‘Happy Mother’s Day, hope you’re enjoying this beautiful sunset.’
Channing Tatum took to Instagram to wish estranged wife Jenna Dewan a happy Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 13. In a video uploaded onto his Instagram Story, the 38-year-old actor paid tribute to his own mother and Jenna, the mother of his four-year-old daughter Everly.
“Happy Mother’s Day everybody. Jenna, Happy Mother’s Day, baby. Momma, Happy Mother’s Day, hope you’re enjoying this beautiful sunset. Love you guys,” he said in the footage.
Channing and Jenna stunned the world in April when they announced they’d decided to split after nine years of marriage. Jenna has since dropped the Tatum from her double-barrelled surname and both she and Channing are attempting to move on with their lives.
The “Step Up” star wasn’t the only famous face to take to social media to pay tribute to loved ones on Mother’s Day. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who recently became a father for the third time after girlfriend Lauren Hashian gave birth to daughter Tiana, penned an epic tribute to his other half, which included him writing, “I’m in constant respect and grateful awe of all the things this incredible mama accomplishes on a daily basis.”
After listing said accomplishments and praising Lauren’s songwriting career, Dwayne concluded his post, “And finally – of all the human beings on this earth she could have as her partner – she chose me. One big, brown, bald, tattooed, very lucky SOB. Happy Mama’s Day Lauren. Take a bow and Queen it up – you’re an amazing mama and amazing mama’s make this world go around.”
Happy Mother’s Day to my main squeeze @laurenhashianofficial, holding my little main squeeze, Jasmine Lia, who’s holding my tiniest main squeeze, Tiana Gia – both our daughter’s middle names are in honor of their great grandmothers, Lia and Giavanna. I’m in constant respect and grateful awe of all the things this incredible mama accomplishes on a daily basis. Here’s a fun small recap: Having a two and half year old and a newborn attached and clinging to her 24/7. Managing the wonderfully fun, Terrible 2’s with Jazzy. The “Hi, I need to eat every 3hrs and preferably from your boob” (just like daddy;) with Baby Tia. Managing multiple family properties. Managing an ever growing staff of family employees across the country. Picking up the ENTIRE FAMILY, STAFF AND DOG and moving to multiple locations AROUND THE WORLD, throughout the year because of my filming and production schedule. All while continuing to build an amazing career as a music and song writer/producer. As an artist and businessman myself, I recognize how incredibly hard this part is of her job is. She’s a brilliant visionary storyteller and lyrically gifted – all qualities that are hard to tap into when you’re managing this nonstop life of ours. But she does it like a brilliant bad ass. And here’s the best part and the thing I’m most proud of… Lauren does it all with a big genuine smile and is truly, the kindest and sweetest soul you’ll ever meet. People tell me all time after they spend time with her, “Lauren’s the nicest person I have ever met”. I always say, “Yes she is and being nice runs in our family… and so does kicking ass, so don’t ever get on her bad side” Lol. And finally – of all the human beings on this earth she could have as her partner – she chose me. One big, brown, bald, tattooed, very lucky SOB. Happy Mama’s Day Lauren. Take a bow and Queen it up – you’re an amazing mama and amazing mama’s make this world go around. #yvpagm x
The holiday wasn’t enjoyed by everyone, however. Former “Scream Queens” actress Billie Lourd, whose mother Carrie Fisher died in December 2016, reflected that in a post on her social media, sharing a throwback picture of herself and her “Star Wars” actress mom.
“This one goes out to anyone having a less than perfect Mother’s Day today. We are not alone. Sending all my love and strength to anyone who needs it,” she wrote.
