Many people took to Instagram this past weekend to share throwback photos of themselves with their mothers in honor of Mother’s Day and a series of photos posted by “Vanderpump Rules” star Scheana Shay’s mother had fans reacting.
Shay’s mother, Erika van Olphen, posted a bunch of photos of her daughter through the years and wrote in the caption, “37 years ago you made me a Mom! And now a Nona! I couldn’t be more proud of the woman you are and the Mom you are to Summer! Since you were a little girl I knew you could do anything you set your mind to, and you have done just that! You’re beautiful, smart, kind, and the best daughter a mom could ask for.. Happy birthday babe! 37 looks good on you!!”
The photo series began with a shot of Shay holding her 1-year-old daughter Summer Moon followed by many photos of Shay herself as a baby and young girl with Van Olphen. Shay replied, “thank you!!! I love you SO much! I wouldn’t be the mom I am today without you!” Shay’s VPR co-star Ariana Madix commented, “summer legit looks JUST LIKE YOU.” Madix wasn’t the only one who picked up on that as fans were quick to share their own thoughts on the family resemblance.
