She wrote on Instagram, "LUCIA MARISOL WILLIAMS arrived on May 4th to give me my Mother’s Day hugs and kisses herself.

Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey took to Twitter to express her "challenging" relationship with Mother's Day due to her own personal struggles. In the eloquently written note, the singer recognized all her "sisters in the world who aren't quite where they thought they would be this Mother's Day, and to all of my sisters who are blissfully happy as well."
Earlier on Sunday, she also thanked her friends for their motherly bond.
"Thank you Lord for reminding me that we get to choose our family today and that we get to walk with our chosen sisters and take turns nurturing each other," she tweeted.
Lena Dunham took time to celebrate her mother today, while also sharing words of comfort to those who can't or don't want to commemorate the occasion.
"For those who aren’t necessarily welcoming Mother’s Day, I see you, I love you and wherever you are today- resentful, lonely, nostalgic, resigned or maybe even joyful- you are already #wellenough," the actress and writer tweeted, adding that the holiday "can also summon a tidal wave of grief for those who have lost their own mother figure or their ability to be a mother in the way they’d always dreamed."
