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! 💖

They are sociable animals that live, hunt, and migrate together in pods, ranging from a few individuals to hundreds of whales. However, they are naturally reticent to interact with humans, although some solitary belugas are known to approach boats.

The truth doesn't hurt for an elementary school teacher in California who's gone viral for teaching her class an empowering remix of one of Lizzo's hit songs.

Ms. Mallari — who teaches at Los Medanos Elementary School in Pittsburg, east of San Francisco — took the singer's song, "Truth Hurts," and reworked the lyrics to teach her students how to be great.

Lizzo's song made history this year for being the longest running number one single from a female rap artist. The catchy original lyrics are about boy problems, but Mallari's remix teaches her students about fairness, helping each other out, and embracing their own greatness.
