Mother’s Day UK: Celebs celebrating first one

Mother’s Day has arrived in the UK – and celebs up and down the country will no doubt be kicking back and relaxing…

While breakfast in bed, handmade cards and lush-smelling flowers are usually on the menu, there’s nothing sweeter than the first very Mother’s Day! And for some showbiz stars, this year will be their very first time celebrating all-things-mum (which should be an all-year-thing, just saying…)

From a Strictly favourite to a chart-topping pop star, here are the famous faces that are celebrating Mother’s Day for the first time!

Mother’s Day UK: Oti Mabuse celebrating with baby girl

Dancing On Ice judge Oti Mabuse welcomed her first baby, a girl, with husband Marius Lepure back in December. Oti has decided to not share many details about her daughter and has not told her fans her name or when she was born.

And we only know the baby is a girl after Oti’s sister Motsi Mabuse slipped up. Sharing the news of the birth with her own followers, Motsi wrote: “Merry Christmas – call us Auntie & Uncle! Welcome to the family baby girl @otimabuse & @mariusiepure welcome to parenthood lol it’s going to be fun.”

Love Island star Laura Anderson gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Bonnie Rose Lucy Anderson in September 2023. She shares the bundle of joy with Gary Lucy – and the pair have had an on-and-off relationship for years.

Laura and Gary met while filming Celebs Go Dating in 2022, falling for each other instead of the civilians they had been paired with. However, they split in the early stages of the pregnancy with Bonnie. But after weeks of speculation from fans, Gary and Laura seemingly revealed in January this year that they are back together.
