With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we decided to celebrate our favourite mums from television shows or films, the ones we love and (secretly) wish they could be our second mother.

1. Edina Margaret Rose Monsoon (aka Eddie)

So funny she makes you weep with laughter, she is a PR to the stars and guzzles champagne like it is going out of fashion (it isn’t, otherwise she would have told you). Eddie is in a league of her own. You never knew what was going to happen when she was around and she’s the mother we’ve always worshipped (even if we’re secretly relieved she isn’t our real mum).

2. Marge Simpson

Mother to two of the most famous kids around, Marge Simpson is one of the most tolerant and patient mothers ever to appear on screen. Not to mention, she must have an incredibly high pain threshold and incredibly strong neck to be able to withstand the weight of all that blue hair.

3. Daenerys Targaryen

She’s the mother of dragons — what else do we need to say? But she also manages to lead an army of Unsullied, regularly frees entire cities and makes extremely difficult decisions all while caring for her enormous, fire-breathing “children”. Although she struggles to set boundaries for her adolescent dragons, Daenerys shows us how to remain calm and poised while still maintaining beautiful hair.

Mrs Weasley

Not only mother to a huge brood of her own children (seven in total), she also mothered Harry Potter as if he were her own son. She is a feisty, fiery woman who protected her kids like a lioness and commanded the respect of all her children. Oh, and she could manage the household in her sleep and is an extremely powerful witch and excellent duelist.

Morticia Addams

A highly sensual woman with a very distinctive look, Morticia is not your traditional mother. But she loves passionately, is very independent, isn’t afraid of the dark and teaches her children to go after what they want. She’s completely at ease with who she is, and this is an important quality to be able to demonstrate to your children.
