Mädchen Amick knows a thing or two about being a mom. The Riverdale actress—who made her directorial debut in the Season 4 finale—stars as Betty Cooper's mom in the teen drama. She takes another star turn as a mother in real life. Amick's real mom skills come from off-screen, where her life's passion is being a mother of two (Mina and Sylvester).
In honor of Mother's Day, we've put together a list of the top eight social posts that show what makes this real-life mom a hit, on-screen and off!
8. She Knows Her Children Are the Future
Of all the worthy tributes she might have posted on International Women's Day, Amick chose to shine the light on her own daughter. With that kind of mom-support, what can't you accomplish in life?
7. She Dedicates Mother's Day to Her Joy in Motherhood
"I love being your mother more than anything else. I'm the luckiest person because I've been chosen to help guide you through this life."
If that doesn't bring a few tears to your eyes, you'd better be off to see a wizard about getting a new heart.
6. Even Her TV Kids Feel the Love
Although they aren't really related, Amick brings the same maternal instincts that drive her at home to her on-screen family. She looks out for the Cooper family on set and beyond.
5. There Will Always Be Baby Pics
Her kids may be (mostly) grown now, but can you blame Amick for breaking out the adorable baby pics? Just imagine if your own mom had almost four million social followers.
4. But She Lets Her Kids Grow Up
Yes, Amick will share the pic of those tiny pajamas with feet, but she also celebrates her kids in full, grown-up, selfie splendor.
3. She Never Takes a Holiday from Family
Amick is an independent woman with a flourishing career, but she makes time for family when it counts.
2. When Social Has to Bridge the Miles, Her Game Is Extra Strong
If you can't have cake and candles (or ice cream) together, then you'd better turn the social dial up to 11. Amick brings the photo fire in this virtual birthday post to Mina.
1. She's Got the Giggles
Amick has no problem putting the glamour on pause for a good filter-fueled laugh with Mina.
