These celebrities' mom texts are hilariously relatable.

In honor of Mother's Day, Jimmy Kimmel asked celebrities to read very real texts from their own moms:

It did not disappoint.

Anna Faris' mom, for instance, said she believes her daughter is the greatest actress of her generation but also needs Faris to remember to wear sunscreen.

And that's a message urgent enough to send at 3:34 a.m.

Then there's Jack McBrayer. He sends his mom a Christmas ornament for the tree every holiday season. But after receiving the last one, she had quite the morbid response.

"Thank you, Jack. Hope you live long enough to see it in person."

Kristen Bell's mom asked her daughter for insider information on who was going to take home Academy Awards.

Because Oscar hosts can just pass out that information like candy apparently.

Tony Hale's mom was supportive but also candid about her complete failure to keep up with her son's on-screen storylines.

Will Forte's mom enjoyed sending her son a series of duck emojis.

Literally that was it.

Anthony Anderson's mom had a straightforward (if not unusual) demand of her son for Mother's Day: a room in Vegas. Now.

As any mom should!

OK, so some (most?) moms aren't experts at texting.

But who cares? Tech-savviness isn't a prerequisite to good parenting, right? Unconditional love — now that's a little more necessary.

If you're celebrating a mom in your life who has gone above and beyond this Mother's Day, make sure to text — or maybe pick up the phone and actually call — to express how much they mean to you.

Happy Mother's Day! 💖

After years of service as a military nurse in the naval Marine Corps, Los Angeles, California-resident Rhonda Jackson became one of the 37,000 retired veterans in the U.S. who are currently experiencing homelessness — roughly eight percent of the entire homeless population.

"I was living in a one-bedroom apartment with no heat for two years," Jackson said. "The Department of Veterans Affairs was doing everything they could to help but I was not in a good situation."

One day in 2019, Jackson felt a sudden sense of hope for a better living arrangement when she caught wind of the ongoing construction of Veteran's Village in Carson, California — a 51-unit affordable housing development with one, two and three-bedroom apartments and supportive services to residents through a partnership with U.S.VETS.

Her feelings of hope quickly blossomed into a vision for her future when she learned that Veteran's Village was taking applications for residents to move in later that year after construction was complete.

"I was entered into a lottery and I just said to myself, 'Okay, this is going to work out,'" Jackson said. "The next thing I knew, I had won the lottery — in more ways than one."

A group of beachgoers in Mexico proved that when people join together and stand up for justice, you can triumph in even the direst of circumstances.

Municipal police in Tulum, Quintana Roo got received a tip that there were men allegedly committing "immoral acts" on the beach. So the officers, armed with AR-15 rifles, picked up two Canadian men.

"The officers approached a group of young foreigners," local politician Maritza Escalante Morales recounted in her video. "After about 20 minutes passed, a patrol car arrived and proceeded to arrest them with handcuffs."

Most people imagine depression equals “really sad,” and unless you’ve experienced depression yourself, you might not know it goes so much deeper than that. Depression expresses itself in many different ways, some more obvious than others. While some people have a hard time getting out of bed, others might get to work just fine — it’s different for everyone.

The 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) kicked off in Orlando, Florida on Friday. It's three days of panels and speakers with former President Donald Trump delivering the keynote speech on Sunday night.

It's believed that during the speech Trump will declare himself the Republican frontrunner for the 2024 nomination.

So far, the event has made headlines for a speech by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas who tried his hand at stand-up comedy. "I've got to say, Orlando is awesome," Cruz told the cheering crowd. "It's not as nice as Cancun. But it's nice."
