“She’s always been there; when I became a mother, through my divorce, through my second marriage, through it all,” says Nicole of her mother. In the heartwarming photo above, Nicole posts a sweet tribute to her mom for her birthday. The Australian award-winning actress says she flies back home any chance she gets so she can spend time with her mom.

American model Sailor Brinkley Cook rose to fame after appearing on the 2017 cover of “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue” alongside her mother, Christie Brinkley, and sister, Alexa Ray Joel. The following year, she made the cover all by herself.
“I couldn’t have done any of it without my mother; she’s always had my back and been there for every photo shoot,” said Sailor in an interview with “Vogue.” On Mother’s Day of 2023, Sailor posted an adorable photo of her as a child with her mother and wrote, “My mom is my superhero.” Clearly, the two blonde beauties are extremely close.
Michelle Yeoh and Janet Yeoh
The incredibly talented Michelle Yeoh rose to fame in the 1990s by starring in action movies in Hong Kong, where she did all of her own stunts. In 2000, she landed a role in the hit film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”, but it wasn’t until 2022 when playing her Oscar-winning role of Evelyn in “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” that she climbed to the top of the Hollywood ladder.
If there is one person that Michelle has thanked and praised throughout her entire journey, it’s been her mother, Janet Yeoh. The Malaysian actress has always been famously close with her mother, and when receiving the Oscar in 2022, she took it straight home to her parents. “Without my parents’ love and trust and support, I wouldn’t be here today,” said Michelle in her acceptance speech.

In the series, the Clintons go around the country interviewing famous women who are “unapologetically themselves.”
In a 2022 interview with “The Independent”, Chelsea said, “I give my mom a lot of credit for the sense of self that I had." It’s clear that these two are close as can be, even as adults, and couldn’t be prouder of each other.
