Their might be nothing sweeter than a proud mama.
Lin-Manuel Miranda -- who's poised to become the youngest EGOT winner ever if his Moana number, "How Far I'll Go," wins Best Original Song at the 2017 Academy Awards -- hit the red carpet in Hollywood with his mom, Luz, on Sunday night, and she couldn't help but rave about her son.

"I think he's very blessed to have been able to manage so much," Miranda's mom said, admitting, "From the time he was little, I knew he was very, very special."
"At two, he knew all the words on 'The Twelve Days of Christmas,'" she added. "Anyone who came to the house, he'd say, 'I know the Twelve Days of Christmas--"
"Alright that's enough," an embarrassed Miranda adorably interjected.
But Miranda's mom wasn't the only one making him blush on the red carpet, as the actor confessed, meeting Jackie Chan left him a little starstruck!
"I just met Jackie Chan about five minutes ago, and I'm still a little starstruck from that," he shared, revealing a possible dream collaboration. "He does sing! Jackie Chan, wait for it, 2020."
We'd love to hear that!
On a more serious note, the Mirandas walked the carpet in matching blue ribbons, signifying support for the ACLU, the civil rights organization whose active role in the fight against President Trump's immigration policies is likely to underpin this year's ceremony.
"It's a good organization, they're fighting the good fight right now," Miranda said.
Meanwhile, Miranda is not alone when it comes to stars who bring their moms as their dates to awards shows!
