We wish there were enough beautiful words to define the strong bond of a mother and daughter! The love of a mother is a reflection of a woman’s growth, pride, and character. Behind every trailblazing woman is a trailblazing mother! As we celebrate Mother’s Day, we want to highlight ten of our favorite mother and daughter duos! From dominating the music industry to creating a space of healing, the power of their bond is unbreakable.
Lynn Whitfield and Grace Gibson
Class, style, and GRACE! We recently captured Greenleaf‘s Lynn Whitfield and daughter, Grace Gibson, in our exclusive MEFeater Mother’s Day Shoot! Whitfield is an Emmy Award-Winning legend in Hollywood and now Gibson is creating a trailblazing legacy! Grace Gibson is an emerging star in music and entertainment! The rock songstress recently released her first single, “Steampunk Blues”, which is an amazing record about chasing your dreams! When together, Lynn and Grace exude a beautiful bond like no other. This mother and daughter duo represents an unbreakable bond. We adore their love and support for one another.
Beyoncé and Blue Ivy 💎👑
When introducing these two, make sure you add Grammy Award-Winning Mother and Daughter Duo to the introduction! Blue Ivy has grown right in front of our eyes and she is filling the shoes of her mother very well! The mother and daughter duo serves nothing but iconic moments! From the electrifying dance breaks in Disney’s Black Is King to winning a Grammy for “Brown Skin Girl”, Beyonce and Blue are creating an everlasting legacy. We cannot wait to see what’s next when little sister, Rumi, tags along!
Keri and Yara Shahidi 🌟
Like mother, like daughter! Whenever Keri and Yara Shahidi step on the scene, they mean nothing but business! The mother and daughter duo recently launched their very own production company, 7TH Sun. Their goal is to bridge creatives of color together while partnering with ABC. The duo currently has two shows in development including a cannabis comedy series titled Smokeland and a drama series titled Greyboy. The two are not only actresses and producers, they are fearless advocates as well! Grown ish star and Harvard student, Yara Shahidi, has become a profound advocate for education, women’s rights, and social justice – with her mother right by her side.
Jada, Willow…AND Adrienne Banfield Norris 🧘🏾♀️
Wisdom is in their DNA! This dynamic trio has captured the hearts of the healing when it comes to their Red Table Talk. Their generational bond is all about learning from one another. Because of Adrienne’s and Jada’s bond, we see a healthy bond between and Willow and Jada. Plus how beautiful was it to see Willow pay tribute to her mother’s rock band? We love everything about their powerful bond!
Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross 🎆
The star quality between these two is so captivating that we often forget about their mother and daughter relationship. Diana Ross is a living legend and Tracee Ross is someone we love to see on primetime TV. When these two are together, their auras light up the room. Diana Ross graced many stages and even won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Billie Holiday in The Lady Sing’s The Blues. Today we see that same style and grace from Tracee Ellis Ross. The Emmy nominated actress definitely “get it from her momma”.
Lisa Bonet and Zoe Kravitz 🔮
You might want to look twice when it comes to this mother and daughter duo! Actresses Lisa Bonet and Zoe Kravitz are spitting images of each other. Kravitz fills her mother’s shoes as an actress and can be seen in movies like DOPE and starring in shows like HBO’S Big Little Lies and Hulu’s High Fidelity reboot – which Lisa Bonet starred in the original series(2000)! In 2018, Zoe Kravitz stunned the world when she recreated her mother’s 1988 Rolling Stone Magazine shoot! Lisa Bonet debuted her acting career on The Cosby’s Show and she quickly became fans’ favorite on the spin-off, A Different World. She starred in major films like Angel Heart and Enemy of the State (starring Will Smith). Now Kravitz is set to star as Catwoman in the new Batman franchise.
Naomi Campbell and Valerie Morris 💄
Naomi Campbell may be the first black supermodel but it was her mom who paved the way. Valerie Morris was a professional dancer and taught Naomi Campbell the “signature walk”. Naomi and Valerie would “prance” whenever rehearsing or practicing her runway walk. Today the mother and daughter duo continue to serve looks as Valerie Morris is also a model.
Courtney Bailey X Chloe X Halle ♥🎶
We can not help but love Chloe X Halle! After a trailblazing 2020, the multi-talented sister duo has the world waiting for more. We can thank their beautiful mother for igniting their desire to pursue music at a very young age. Once Courtney Bailey realized the two sisters enjoyed performing she began signing the sisters up for every talent show in Atlanta. This motivated the sisters to keep working on their craft. The two eventually started doing covers on Youtube and were discovered by the one and only, Beyonce. Recently on the Power 105 – The Breakfast Club Show, Halle stated “…mom taught us everything we know now and how to unapologetically be ourselves.”
Erykah Badu and Puma 🌻
The spiritual bond between these two is incredible. Their bond represents love, humility, and power. Badu’s sultry voice and neo-soul classics have paved the way for so many of our favorite artists, including Sza and Ari Lenox. The apple has not fallen too far from the tree, Badu and Puma can be found performing their favorite tunes together. It is beautiful to see the legacy flourish!
We know what you’re thinking? Which one is the mom!! This beautiful mother and daughter duo has put a new meaning to social media influence. Their stunning photoshoots and content together are a beautiful representation of love! We fell in love with Tabitha Brown’s soothing motivational and humorous content on social media. She is now signed to her dream agency, CAA, and has her very own show, ALL LOVE. Major things are also happening for her beautiful daughter, Choyce Brown, who is a stunning model. We are rooting for this mother and daughter duo!
