Cardinal Mermillod once said, “A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take”. How true is that?
A mother may have 2-3 kids or even more. But all of us have just one mother and no one can take her place. The relationship we share with our mother is the first ever relationship of our life and is probably the most sacred and valued of all.
They say, as you grow old, and by the time you become a mother, you will realise how right your mother was and then you will have a daughter who thinks you are wrong. And the circle goes on.
There are loads of things that one can say about the sacred relationship between a mother and daughter, but to be very honest, there are no words that can do justice to explain this beautiful relationship. So, on this Mother’s Day, instead of writing sermons on mother-daughter relationship, we would like to talk about few mother-daughter duos who have caused a stir in the industry.
Their love for each other, the way they look up to each other, their bond, their strength and their connection is just so special.
1. Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama
They aren’t in the showbiz world, but their relationship with each other is known to the world. Michelle Obama is the first lady. She is expected to be at different events at all times and do various things which a normal mother wouldn’t have to do. Yet, she takes time for her daughter and talks about them at public events with such love that you get constant feels. They are a true representation of a closed knit-enmeshed family. And we love it!
2. Kris Jenner and her daughters
Well, Kris Jenner and her daughters are famous around the world. Their relationship is open to the world and there is nothing that’s hidden. They may not share the most ideal relationship with each other and maybe upset with each other. But in reality that’s how relationships are. Nobody is perfect and the Kardashian’s and Jenner’s don’t shy away from the truth. We like their honesty!
3. Kate Middleton and Charlotte Elizabeth Diana
This is going to be one adorable relationship to watch from afar. We loved watching Prince George grow and how Kate did these small, small things for him – taking him to the zoo, pool, spend time with him. We are sure the same is going to happen with Princess Charlotte and we have a strong feeling that she’s literally going to be mommy’s little princess
4. Babita, Karisma and Kareena Kapoor
These ladies have ruled Bollywood constantly. First, it was Babita, then her lovely daughter Karisma and now Kareena. The things they do for each other are just so sweet. Karisma called off her marriage with Abhishek because her mommy did not approve. Kareena Kapoor and her beau – Saif organized a birthday party for Babita this year. These things may seem very small and petty, but it is in these small things that one finds rewards.
5. Dimple Kapadia and Twinkle Khanna
Miss Funny Bones aka Twinkle Khanna has always been very close to mommy. Every appearance, you can spot them together, side-by-side, hand-in-hand. Which we think is quite adorable. Both these beauties along with Rinki Khanna, co-ordinate outfits and make a perfect trio! Gotta love their style.
6. Jaya Bachchan and Shweta Nanda
Being angry young man’s wife must have been task enough for Jaya Bachchan. But despite being a star wife and an extremely talented actress herself, she did not neglect her family. When the time called for it, she gave Shweta Nanda all her attention and took a sabbatical from work to make sure that she does her job as mommy dearest perfectly!
7. Neetu Kapoor and Ridhima Kapoor
So the Kapoor khandan has this rule that their ghar ki bahu cannot be an actress. If you want to marry their son, then you need to give your all to him, his family, and just be the perfect bharatiya naari. Doing just that was Neetu Kapoor when she married Rishi Kapoor. Then came Ridhima Kapoor like a blessing and ever since the duo have been the best of friends.
8. Angelina Jolie and Marcheline Bertrand
We have known Angelina Jolie for a very long time now. We have seen her at her peak and at her lowest moments. Despite what she’s been through, she came out as a strong woman, spreading peace and love all throughout the world. She’s adopted kids in need and been to places where nobody could think of them. When her mother passed away, she hit rock bottom, but then again, thanks to her teachings, she rose back up and came out stronger than ever!
9. Tanjua and Kajol
Tanuja knew what a cutthroat world it was out there and wanted to protect Kajol from it for as long as she could. According to Tanjua, she didn’t want Kajol to be an actress but being the rebellious little girl she is, she rebelled her way into the industry and made it big. Does either of them have any regrets? No. Just love!
These are 9 sensational mother-daughter duo’s who have created buzz. But that does not mean that all relationships are going to be sensational like theirs. We must always remember that no one is perfect and no relationship comes without flaws. The Kardashian sisters are a true example of that. Everyone has bitter-sweet fights but what we must always remember is family is power.

In a 2016 interview with New York Times Magazine, Portman revealed that parenthood has changed her. “[Parenthood] made me much calmer under stress, because there’s that weird parent thing you develop, that when things get really bad, your voice gets calm and your blood pressure slows, and you can make everything okay again,” she wrote at the time.
16. Helen Lasichanh
Model and designer Helen Lasichanh welcomed her three triplets earlier in January, this year. She is already a mother to eight-year-old son Rocket Ayer, together with singer Pharrell Williams.

17. Pink and son Jameson Moon Heart
Songstress Pink has welcomed her baby boy in January this year along with her husband Carey Heart. The couple also has a five-year daughter, Willow Sage. The name Jameson was always stuck on the singer’s mind for a long.

18. Olivia Wilde and daughter Daisy Josephine
