Mums from TV Shows that we'd love to hang out with

Ivana Jiménez

Mums are so important in our everyday life that, in our eyes, everyday should be Mother’s day. 

The mother figure is at the core of many TV shows. Whether it is in a comedy or a drama, mums always take a huge part in the story and can even be the hero of it. For this years’ Mother’s day we thought it might be a good idea to celebrate all the TV mums. Those that gave us pieces of advice through the screen and still today, make us cry and laugh, all at the same time.

Let’s celebrate mother’s day by the hand of these mum characters that we wish we’d have around in real life.

Claire Dunphy – Modern Family

We can all agree this is one of the most relatable characters in TV so far. Claire is a mother of three, a soon to be grandmother and well we all know how complicated her family history is. As a mum, wife and especially as a woman, she is someone that gets things done. She is independent, competitive and will do anything to keep a smile on her family’s face.

This mum is the queen of the house

The Villanueva Women – Jane The Virgin

Whether you identify with Jane, Xiomara or Alba, the Villanueva are a special bunch. This family of strong latina women have overcome all the possible challenges of living in a new country. All of this, without forgetting the importance of family and unconditional love, all this of course with the amazing telenovela style.

Three amazing and strong mums

Lorelai Gilmore – Gilmore Girls

Lorelai overcomes all the struggles of being a single mum at a young age and raises and incredible daughter all by herself. She is one of the greatest pop culture references for being the cool and funny mum that drinks a lot of coffee and has a complicated relationship with her parents. She is always there to give her daughter Rory, a hand and support her every step of the way. 

Do as mum says!

Penelope Riera Alvarez – One Day at a Time

Single mother of two, former veteran and nurse. Penelope is the living proof that mums are real life superheroes. A complicated love live takes her to becoming a single mum that has to learn to balance the struggles of returning from the army, her career and two kids. She has the help of her own mami, whom adds some cuban flavour and lots of humor to the family

Hugs from mum are one of a kind

Debra Barone – Everybody Loves Raymond

This is not your typical stay-at-home mum. She is always full with work, and let’s face it, she’s also very stressed. That doesn’t stop her from being a loving mum who is also the pillar of the household. Let’s not forget that in addition to all of that she tries to stay positive even when her in-laws try to meddle in her life.

There comes a moment in which mums just have to lay the cards on the table

Regina Mills – Once Upon A Time

Also known as the Evil Queen, Regina showed us how love is the most powerful thing in the world, especially when the love comes from your children. She fought against dragons and witches to protect her family, and let’s not forget that she did all of that while being the mayor of Storybrook too, talk about multitasking!

Daenerys Targaryen – Game of Thrones

Mums come in all forms and shapes. Even though Danny is no conventional type of a mother, she loves her dragons like no one else and is willing to protect them against all threat. As the baby dragons grew up, one might think that they are ready to leave the nest, but it’s not like that in this case. Daenerys shows us that it doesn’t matter how big or old you get, you will always need your mum.

Some have kids, some have dogs and some have DRAGONS

Sometimes our lives can look like a TV show. Maybe it’s because we have one of the most important characters in our life: our mum. Feeling inspired by this selection? Why not spending the occasion watching a “Mum Marathon” with your very special guest of the day! Sit back, relax and enjoy Mother’s day!
