Celeb Instagram: Mother’s Day Edition!

On a more serious note, this lady, @irisdce, my mama is the reason I am who I am today and the only reason I enjoy whatever success I enjoy. She had me when she was 19 years old! As a child, I hounded her about the fact that I wanted to be an artist – a singer, a dancer and actor. She didn’t laugh at me. She didn’t dissuade me. She found a way to make my dreams come true. We found a commercial acting class and she charged her credit cards, drove me an hour and a half away, sat in the car and busied herself on weekend days and then drove me home and did it every week for months. She wasn’t a stage mom. She was just a mom who supported her child in every way possible. She has cheered me in every way you can imagine and now that I’m seeing some fruits of that success I have the great fortune of sharing it with her and my family. I am forever indebted to this woman and her selflessness and determination. Thank you mom, for this and for EVERY SINGLE THING; for life, for breath, for LOVE. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
