The Queer Eye star posted a slideshow of photos with his mom, Mary Winters. If the pictures alone aren't proof of their close relationship, the caption sure is. Van Ness wrote, "Sure do love my mama ♥ I’m so happy to be able to have this time w my mom, for her to meet my husband, our babies, for me to be able to impulse buy my mom gorgeous stunning bags & make food together in my kitchen. These are all moments I would’ve considered impossible at earlier times in my life. The memories we’ve been able to share w you are so amazing mama & I love you!!"
Jonathan Van Ness Posts Rare Photo of Lookalike Mom: ‘Sure Do Love My Mama’
In the series of nine photos, the 34-year-old actor is seen shopping, riding boats and going on hikes with his mom. He also described a pic where he is sporting a couple of Band-Aids, saying, "Also, in the pic w two bandaids on my face, I broke up a cat fight and my face lost but those bags were too cute to not post."
Out of all the photos, the best part is the final pic, which is a rare throwback of Van Ness as a child sitting on his mother's lap. And we can't get over how much he looks like his mom.
Van Ness concluded the post with a heartfelt message, adding, "I know Mother’s Day can be a loaded day for lots of folks and in some ways it’s hard for my mom and I too bc all family relationships can have their challenges. But my mom is a cancer surviving literal open hearted hero who I just have to celebrate all up on this feed today. Happy Mother’s Day!"
If Mary is anything like JVN, she must be pretty damn cool.
