The Rock's mom got teary-eyed yesterday on an early-morning flight thinking about all of her son's accomplishments. "I asked her, 'Are you happy ma?'" he wrote. "Just then the flight attendant placed my mom's breakfast down on the table, and my mom said to me, 'Am I happy? I used to worry about how I was going to buy groceries for us, and now, I just had my breakfast placed down in front of me.' She bursts into tears and says, 'Yes, son I couldn't be happier.'"

The two may be separated, but Nick is eternally grateful to the mother of his children, Mariah Carey. "She is such a wonderful, thoughtful, festive, loving and nurturing soul," he captioned the photo. "I will forever be in debt to you for blessing me and the rest of the world with Roc & Roe. A true #Queen. Will love you always." Awwwww.

As (Instagram) legend has it, when Mama Monae used to go out with her girlfriends, Baby Janelle wouldn't go to sleep until she was home again. "You wouldn't cry," Janelle writes in her caption, quoting her mom. "You would just sit up looking around for me. When I came ohm, I would just hug you and rock you to sleep with me in the bed. You loved yo mama, honey. And I loved you."
