Celebrities are just like us, in that they love to have their moms around! Quite a few actors have been known to bring their mothers as their dates to big red carpet events, and it's pretty much the sweetest thing ever. In fact, the Oscars frequently feature mother-daughter and mother-son duos. Here are some major moments between A-listers and their mamas over the years.

Tina, who is also mom to singer Solange, is famously a fierce advocate for her daughter and back in the day, she even famously made Destiny's Child's costumes. More recently, Queen Bey gave her mom a shout-out on Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage" remix, which actually came as a surprise to Tina. In the remix, Bey sings, “I’m a boss, I’m a leader, I pull up in my two-seater. And my momma was a savage, think I got this sh*t from Tina.” Tina told ET she thought that "was really, really cute." "People started texting me [saying,] ‘OK, savage,’ and I was like, ‘What are they talking about?’” she said. "It’s funny, when I was young, I used to drive a convertible and I used to drive up to Beyoncé’s school and she would say, ‘Mama, you are a hot mama.'"

Taylor Swift and Andrea Swift
Two thumbs up to these bubble blondes! The "Lover" singer is very close to her mom and Andrea has attended a ton of events with her superstar offspring.

Ben Affleck and Christine Anne Boldt and Matt Damon and Nancy Carlsson-Paige

Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, Kylie and Kendall Jenner and Kris Jenner
Kris may be the most famous momager ever! She's equally as famous as her girls, with regular storylines on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and plenty of big-time appearances both with and without them, but the last one they were all at together was Kanye West's Yeezy Season 3 show in February 2016. Before that, all five girls hadn't posed with their mom on a red carpet since 2011! Kourtney, Kim and Khloe, as well as son Rob, are from Kris' first marriage to the late Rob Kardashian, while Kylie and Kendall are from her marriage to ex Caitlyn Jenner.

Laura Dern and Diane Ladd
Forty-five years after she was her mom’s date to the 1975 Oscars, Laura walked the red carpet with Diane by her side at the 2020 Oscars. Laura won for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Netflix’s Marriage Story -- the same category that her mother was nominated for following her role in the 1974 film, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. The Big Little Liars star was 6 years old at the time and attended the ceremony with her mom in what would become a hugely impactful day. “I remember it being scary and overwhelming,” Dern recalled to Vanity Fair about that first mother-daughter Oscars date. “I also remember my mom feeling proud of herself and loving her work … and I remember thinking, ‘Whatever I do when I grow up, I want to really love my job and feel proud of it.’ I’ve never forgotten that.”

Christian Slater and Mary Jo Slater
Mary Jo knows Hollywood, too! A casting director, she's well versed in the entertainment industry and a proud supporter of her son. She's popped up at events all over the world for Christian, including press night of the play One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in London in March 2006.

Russell Brand and Barbara Brand
The comedian gave his mom a big kiss at the 2011 Academy Awards. Barbara has had a rough couple of years, including both a bad car accident and a relapse of breast cancer in 2018, but Russell -- an only child -- is incredibly close to her and always by her side when she needs him; he's even canceled shows to rush to take care of her.
Paris Hilton, Kathy Hilton and Nicky Hilton Rothschild
