Top Mother’s Day Social Media Posts From Athletes All Over

Mother’s Day has arrived, and it’s time to show love for all the mothers and those who played that type of role in your life. The day has finally arrived, and it dates back to ancient Greek and Roman societies, where special events were held to pay tribute to motherly duties such as Rhea and Cybele.

It’s a special day to celebrate the woman who brought you into this world, and like every year, leagues around the world and top players take their time to reach out to their moms. It’s a special moment to see and one to always be thankful for each year.

The NFL shared a video via Twitter showing moms from this year’s rookie class with a special message for their sons.

The mothers who sent a special message to their sons are Chicago Bears quarterback Caleb Williams’ mom, Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Brian Thomas Jr.’s mom, Bears wide receiver Rome Odunze’s mom, Washington Commanders quarterback Jayden Daniels’ mom, and Minnesota Vikings edge rusher Dallas Turner’s mom.

LSU’s women’s basketball head coach, Kim Mulkey, also shared a message to all the LSU moms.

Mulkey led LSU to a national championship in 2023 in her second year in Baton Rouge.

MLB chimed in on Mother’s Day, with MLB Develops sharing a video of Atlanta Braves outfielder and former Rookie of the Year Michael Harris II and his mother, LaTaucha. The two sat down, and Harris shared his best moments with his mother.

Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout shared a special post of his wife and mother of their kid, Jessica Trout.

MLB Twitter account shared Los Angeles Dodgers superstar infielder Mookie Betts reminiscing on his mom, Diana, being his first-ever coach because, believe it or not, no one wanted to be Mookie’s coach as a kid.

Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback paid tribute to his wife on Instagram for Mother’s Day.

All these athletes started somewhere, and most wouldn’t have gotten to where they wanted to go without their mothers. The support that they have shown over the years doesn’t go unnoticed and today is a day to be celebratory. As then Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant said to his mom years ago during his MVP speech, moms you are the real MVP.

We wish all the mothers a Happy Mother’s Day and a special thanks to all the moms who raised these great athletes.
