For most of us, Mother's Day 2020 probably looks a lot different than it did last year. With social distancing and quarantine guidelines in place, we're not able to gather together for brunch and may have to celebrate with our moms via Zoom—but at least we all still have Instagram.
As people all over the internet take to the social media platform to celebrate motherhood and their own moms with throwback photos and sweet images, here's how celebrities are marking the occasion.
Hadid—who is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend, Zayn Malik—took the time to let her mom, Yolanda, know just how much she means to her.
