Josh Duhamel’s Mother’s Day Plans for Fergie Will Be ‘Low-Key’: ‘We’re Just Going to Be a Family’

05/07/2016 at 05:15 PM ET

Josh Duhamel and Fergie know how to enjoy a night out, but this Mother’s Day, it’s going to be a cozy night in.

“Ferg is right in the middle of shooting a video, so it’s going to be a pretty low-key Mother’s Day,” Duhamel, 43, told PEOPLE while attending the Kentucky Derby Saturday with G.H. Mumm champagne.

Between both of their schedules, the actor says he and his pop star wife have been “crazy busy” for the last couple of weeks and are looking forward to enjoying some quiet family time with son Axl, 2.

“I [asked her], what do you want to do? We got the whole day off,” said Duhamel, 43. “She said: ‘I just want to order some food in, and be with you and Axl.’ We’re just going to sit at home and just be a family.”

“It’s going to be nice just to have a very low-key, at home, Mother’s Day,” Duhamel said. “We’ll probably order in from someplace fancy, but that’s about as extravagant as we’ll get.”

Monica: Being a Mother Has Helped Me Appreciate My Own Mom More

05/22/2015 at 07:15 PM ET

Growing up in the spotlight, Monica Brown was exposed to a lot at an early age, and it was her mother, Marilyn Best, who kept her grounded.

“I was able to avoid a lot of things that happen, especially to children who become celebrities, because I felt comfortable in my own skin because of my mom,” the R&B singer, 34, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“She instilled certain morals and values, and she said, ‘Regardless of where you go, take you with you wherever you go. Whatever you’re around, whatever you see, never allow it to play a part in who you become.’ ”

Wiz Khalifa Is Passing on ‘Everything’ His Mom Taught Him to Son Sebastian

05/22/2015 at 07:00 PM ET

Now that he has a son of his own, Wiz Khalifa has a whole new appreciation for his mom Peachie Wimbush.

“When stuff happens, I’m like, ‘Oh man, this was definitely me,’ ” he tells PEOPLE of raising his 2-year-old Sebastian Taylor, his son with Amber Rose. “This is what my mom was going through.”

The “See You Again” rapper, who’s hitting the road with Fall Out Boy this summer on their Boys of Zummer tour, is passing on “pretty much everything” he learned from Wimbush, a retired surgical nurse, to his little one.

“All the simple stuff, you know, like using his manners and getting potty-trained,” says Khalifa, 27. “He’s a good boy, though. He uses big words and explains everything!”

Beyonce’s Sweet Mother’s Day Photo – and More Stars Celebrating Moms

05/10/2015 at 06:30 PM ET

If you had any doubt that Blue Ivy is a mini-me version of Beyoncé, this recent Instagram should clear things up.

Bey, who’s celebrating her fourth Mother’s Day, shared two side-by-side photos: one throwback to the ’80s in which she’s standing with her mom, Tina Knowles, and a second where she’s with Blue. The similarities between the two are only accentuated by the fact that they’re sporting similar hairstyles: center-parted pigtails for Beyoncé and center-parted pigtail topknots for Blue.

“Sending love to Mothers around the world,” the 33-year-old singer captioned the photo, which she shared with her 32.3 million followers on Sunday.

The post captured 776,000 likes (and yes, we assume some of those likes were due in part to Mama Tina’s killer 1980s look composed of shoulder pads, a studded belt and shoulder-grazing earrings).

Other celeb moms also took to Insta to give thanks to their children with adorable #ussies and share how they celebrated the day, while famous daddies also used the platform to honor the mothers of their children.

Kerri Walsh Jennings is a gold medal mom.

Not only has she taken home the top award for women’s beach volleyball in the last three Summer Olympics, but she also works hard to be fully present in her three children’s lives.

“I’m in love with them,” Walsh Jennings tells PEOPLE. “They have made my life more beautiful and more meaningful than I ever thought possible.”

She credits her ability to balance being a pro athlete and mom to sons Joey, 5, and Sundance, 4, and daughter Scout, 2, (who Walsh Jennings laughingly says is “the most intimidating woman I’ve ever met in my life”) to the support she receives from her husband Casey Jennings, also an Olympic beach volleyball player.
