Its mothers’ day! And since we’re celebrating this day for all moms—even the fictional ones—we bring you a list of Pinay actresses who always play mom roles on film and TV. Here are our top picks:

Irma Adlawan

a.k.a that mom who always gives out good advice

Irma Adlawan is that type of mom who shares a lot of wisdom with her gentle words. Her scenes always include a deep conversation about life, either with her daughter or her daughter’s boyfriend.

Dimples Romana

a.k.a the sweet, loving mom

Dimples Romana is that young and burgis mom with a gentle tone but can be very strict.

Cherry Pie Picache

a.k.a. that mom who tries her best despite being poor

A teleserye won’t be complete without her iconic line, “anak, alam kong mahirap lang tayo,” and she always brings out the right emotions that will tug at your heartstrings.

Carmi Martin

a.k.a. the comedic mom

When you see Carmi Martin in a teleserye, her mataray vibe guarantees  fun and entertainment in the proceedings. She’s the kind of mom who can be a bad influence, considering her selfish decisions. That’s why she’s also considered as an antagonist, most of the time. Trivia: Carmi Martin is still single in real life.
