Whether it's crying on their shoulders or laughing with them at something totally stupid, our mums are the people that are always there for us. If I could count on my fingers how many times I've rang mine upset/happy/sad/lonely/ecstatic/unsure I'd have to have too many hands to handle.
But luckily for them, it's not just about us. Mother's Day is the one day in the calendar year we get to celebrate just how fabulous our mothers really are. We're pretty sure it should be more than one day, but they're our mothers so we're sure they'll forgive us.
In any case, in honour of the big day this Sunday, we've compiled this gallery of iconic mothers and their children, all the way from some gorgeous retro shots from the 1930s up to the present day. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. And thank you.
Take a look at some of our favourite mothers in the gallery above...
