Parents of celebrities aren't often recognized unless they are famous themselves, too. Obviously Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson are a mother-daughter duo that anyone could point out, but most parents of famous people stay out of the limelight. However, there are plenty of celebrities who love to flaunt their parents, often taking the time to share the red carpet with them. Some celebs even take their parents as dates to major events or award shows. Whether or not it's for publicity, there's something to be said for celebrities who have no shame at showing some love for the mothers that raised them. 

Mother-child relationships can be tricky. Growing up, your mom could be your best friend or your worst enemy, sometimes even simultaneously. And it doesn't necessarily get easier the older you get. Having a famous kid can make that relationship even more volatile. But for the celebrities on this list, their family always comes first. These celebrities aren't shy about labeling their mom as their best friend. From business collaborations, to Oscar speech mentions, to just plain ol' support and love, these famous mother are getting shout-outs in every sense of the word. In honor of Mother's Day, here are 16 celebrities who are BFFs with their moms.

Dina Lohan may not be Mother of the Year, but the woman has shown consistent love and support for her daughter throughout her troubled youth. Definitely debatable, but Lindsay Lohan and her mother, despite all their falling outs, have always managed to come back to each other. Lindsay has called her mother her best friend on multiple occasions. Lohan, who has had a very rocky relationship with her father, always cites her mother as her support system in these cases of strife. Their day-to-day might be a little rocky, but the two woman somehow always work it out.

Chris Evans and his mother, Lisa Evans, are incredibly close. The two share everything together, even things most would admit are a little TMI. For instance, Evans told his mom about the moment he lost his virginity almost immediately after it happened. Bizarre as that may sound, Evans always shares his romantic life with his mother. The Avengers actor needs the approval of his mother before anyone else when it comes to who he's dating. Evans's mother is as equally obsessed with her son. So much so, that she even held a short interview where she gushed about her son and best friend.

Ryan Gosling is definitely a momma's boy. The actor has attended numerous events and award ceremonies with his mother, Donna Gosling, on his arm. Momma Gosling has even taken a liking to her son's girlfriend, and the mother of his child, Eva Mendes. At the Gangster's Squad premiere, not only did Donna get to "raid [Eva's] closet," but she also got to share the evening with her son. When Gosling was asked what makes his mom the best date, he said: "I mean, where do I start? That's an impossible question to answer. She's amazing!"

After the tragic passing of his father, Bradley Cooper arranged for his mother to move in with him. The two have become increasingly close since his father's death. But according to Cooper, moving in with his mother has obviously had its own set of complications. "It's not like I live in a compound and she's in the guesthouse. No. She's in the next room. But here's the thing: She's a cool chick. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches. If that wasn't the case, there's no way." Cooper would do just about anything for his mom, but it makes it easier when "she's a cool chick," I guess.
