Soap Stars Share What Mother’s Day Means To Them

Read on for some poignant insights from a bevy of daytime stars on this Mother’s Day! Leave your thoughts on what Mother’s Day means to you in the comments.

Tamara Braun (Ava, DAYS)
“Mother’s Day is about the women in your life who mother in the most wonderful and loving of ways. It’s about support, encouragement, and love. It’s a day for many that are filled with sadness and longing and for others a day of joy and celebration. I’m grateful that you acknowledge that I mother even though I don’t have human children of my own. I love my fur babies dearly and they enrich my life. I hope that other women out there who were not able to have children for whatever reason but longed for them know that there is no one way to mother.

“It’s not only about biology. It’s about love, caring, and showing up. I also hope that people who feel the loss of their mother will feel her loving energy surrounding them today. Cherish the good memories. Happy Mother’s Day to all who mother and to all who have been Mothered in conventional and non-conventional ways.”

Leslie Charleson (Monica, GH)
“Steve [Burton, Jason] has called every couple of weeks since the pandemic to check in with me. He says, ‘Hi, Mom.’ He’s a really nice guy and he says I’ve taught him a lot. We have a really special friendship on and off the show.”

Mary Beth Evans (Kayla, DAYS)
“My kids went to an art school when they were little. I have these beautiful frame projects they did including a mermaid that my daughter [Katie] drew. My husband has in his office a dachshund wiener dog she drew when she was six years old. We still have these things framed. One of my kids made a turkey napkin holder for my mother-in-law. My kids have always been sweet about writing elaborate love cards to me for Mother’s Day. I have saved them all. Life can be so crazy, but we have a very loving, sweet family.”

Kathleen Gati (Dr. Obrecht, GH)
“Mother’s Day means everything to me. Unfortunately, I lost my mother too young, over 30 years ago, but she is always with me. I look at one of my favorite pictures [of her] to remind me of her beautiful heart. I try to emulate her strength and kindness as much as possible. Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful mothers out there.”




Jacob Young (ex-Rick Forrester, BB; ex-Lucky, GH; ex-JR, AMC)
“Happy Mother’s Day to this very special Mother! We love you soo much! There isn’t a day that goes by we don’t know just how much you love us! (Because you tell us like a 1000 times a day! ) Thank you for being an amazing mom we love you! Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there!”

Laurence Lau (ex-Greg, All My Children; ex-Jamie, Another World)
“Natalie Ross played my mother Enid on All My Children. I love her! Can I say, ‘Happy Mother’s Day to Natalie? Let me just say she was such a huge part of the success of the storyline. She’s such a great person. I love, respect her, and admire her. If she reads this, ‘Happy Mother’s Day, Natalie. God bless you, I love you.’ Also, Vicky Wyndham played my mother (Rachel) on Another World. She’s such an extraordinary person, so magnetic, and strong in her energy. I felt honored playing her son. She’s great. She was supportive, professional, talented, and creative. It was a great honor playing her son.”

Lisa LoCicero (Olivia, GH)
“My mom was quite practical and always said about Mother’s Day, ‘That’s just a greeting card company holiday’… but when I finally became a mother I disagreed. I always get the royal treatment!”

Joshua Morrow (Nick, YR)
“Mother’s Day is, of course, the best day of the year as the world would fall apart if it wasn’t for the mothers! They are smarter, calmer, more reasonable, and just all-around better than dads. With respect to all the moms out there…we are nothing without you!”

“Happy Mother’s Day to moms everywhere. Here is a photo of mine. My mother has lived me through thick and thin, has taught me many lessons, and makes me smile, laugh, and remember not to take myself seriously. #mothersday #mother #mom”




Kin Shriner (Scotty, GH)
“Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there who keep passing General Hospital down to their daughters!”

Chrishel Stause (ex-Jordan, DAYS)
“First Mother’s Day without my mom and my heart is heavy. I am so incredibly happy for all the mom love on this weekend but for anyone feeling an aching void, I am there with you. @vanityfair helped me tell my story with my mom… If anything I hope it helps some of you feel not alone. It helps to feel connected so thank you to those that have shared your stories with me as well. Moms are everything. #Fcancer.”

John J. York (Mac, GH)
“I have said it before and I’ll say it FOREVER…Mothers have ALWAYS BEEN, ARE NOW, and WILL ALWAYS BE the MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE ON THE PLANET!”

Soap Hub wishes all mom’s everywhere a very happy Mother’s Day! Thank you for all that you do.
