Our social media feeds recently filled with lots of Mother's Day posts from some of our favorite - and most hilarious - stars. From Kristen Bell to Dan Levy, here's how these celebs honored their moms on the big day.

Starting us off on a strong note with a LOL-worthy (and quite naughty) post is Will Smith with this gem of an Instagram caption. "Happy Mommy's Day," the Fresh Prince star wrote alongside a heartwarming photo with his mom. And this is where it got funny: "Oh... and Mom," he continued. "I'm sorry about that time when I was a senior in high school and you caught me in the kitchen with my girlfriend. But, really you should've been asleep."

The Schitt's Creek creator also took to social media to share some love for his off-screen mom. We've been seeing this Levy family pic quite a bit since it was first captured pre-2019 Emmy Awards (seriously - Dan even posted it last year for Mother's Day). But somehow, we never tire of it. We just love this powerhouse family! "Celebrating my Mom today. And the fading memory of wearing hard clothes. Love you," the 37-year-old wrote.

Just a few weeks after taking to the Gram to poke some fun at Blake Lively and their shared daughter's obsession with Baby Shark, the King of Trolling His Mrs. is back at it. We warn you: it's not so safe for work this time around. "You're the heart and soul of every moment this family shared," Ryan Reynolds sweetly said. "Never could I have predicted anonymous airport bathroom sex would lead to this. Or how you'd hire Dog The Bounty Hunter to find me. Either way, I'm lucky to reflect a little of the sunlight you shine on all of us." Ah, that's more like it.

This year, we also learned that Kristen Bell has a Muppets version of her mom. Now, that's real love. "Happy mothers day to each and every kind of anyone who holds and uses that magnificent mama energy. The world turns because of you all," The Good Place actress captioned the post. One user hilariously commented what we're all thinking: "So we ain't talking about the muppet." We got to say, though, it's actually funnier this way. Thanks, Kristen!
