Justin Bieber celebrated Mother’s Day by paying tribute to his mother, Pattie, by sharing the cutest baby photos you have ever seen!
The pop star shared the precious photos on Instagram along with a heartwarming message to his mother, thanking her for always believing in him.
JB posted a montage of photos of himself with Pattie, way before he became the international award-winning singer that he is today.
“Can’t express enough the gratitude for all of the things you sacrificed for me! You always believed in me! I love you mom! Thank you!” Bieber captioned the photos.
He added, “HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL HERO MOTHERS ACROSS THE WORLD TODAY.”
Pattie responded to Justin’s post of pictures with a bunch of red heart emojis. Interestingly, JB’s mom tweeted a message to all “underappreciated” mothers in the world — thanking them for putting up with us.
“Dear Moms. You are all too often underrated and underappreciated, dishonored, and overlooked. Not okay ? Today we acknowledge and say THANK YOU for putting up with us, and selflessly showing up again and again. We love you and we wouldn’t be here without you,” Pattie wrote.
It’s unclear if she is talking about her own childhood or the time she had raising Justin — but their story is incredible.
Dear Moms. You are all too often underrated and under appreciated, dishonored and overlooked. Not okay 😞 Today we acknowledge and say THANK YOU for putting up with us, and selflessly showing up again and again. We love you and we wouldn’t be here without you. #HappyMothersDay ❤️

Mallette had a toxic and on-again-off-again relationship with Justin’s father, Jeremy Beiber for years before getting pregnant. After finding out she was having JB, Pattie told the Today Show she was pressured by many around her to have an abortion.
At the time, she was living in a home for pregnant teenagers and made the tough choice to go through with having the baby.
“I just knew I couldn’t. I just knew I had to keep him,” she told Today. Adding, “But I just knew that I couldn’t abort. I had to do my best, and I was determined to do whatever it took.”
Justin’s mother says after giving birth to her son, she was no longer able to return home and had to apply for government assistance. At the time she worked part-time jobs to support them and buy essentials for the baby.
Of course, the rest is history, and her baby boy is now one of the most successful recording artists of all time.
Pattie is now highly successful in her own right, managing her son’s career in the early days and writing an autobiography which made the New York Times Best Sellers list during its first week of sales.
Of course, Justin’s fans love the pics and are lighting up his Instagram page with messages like, “I love this post so much!” and “this is so precious!!❤️?.”
