Most of us are guilty of not calling our moms enough throughout the year, but Mother's Day is a chance to dote on and praise the women who gave us life, and the influential mother-figures in our lives. We asked celebrities like Halle Berry, Mike Epps, Keke Palmer, Kevin Hart and many more the biggest lessons they learned from their mothers, and the responses may have you reaching for tissues.
Watch the video below to find out which star believes she gets her work ethic from her mother, whose mom pawned her wedding ring to put food on the table, which comedian credits his mother for teaching him how to "laugh to keep from crying" and who says his maternal figure is the source of his generosity.

And happy Mother's Day to all the moms and mother figures out there!
