“She created an extraordinary life…walking a path that did not exist” – Tracee Ellis Ross shares Why Mom, Diana Ross is Beautiful for Mother’s Day



DianaRoss & Tracee Ellis Ross - BellaNaija- May 2015_001

When was the last time you told your mom she was beautiful? Well, for actress Tracee Elliss Ross it was yesterday when she participated in Ulta Beauty‘s #MyBeautifulMom campaign for Mother’s Day which asked consumers to take a moment to say “you’re beautiful” for their special day.

For music royalty like Tracee’s mother – Diana Ross, finding the right way to say you’re beautiful can be hard, but when you say it from the heart, it’s perfect.

Earlier on yesterday, Tracee posted this video on her Instagram and Twitter accounts sharing why her mom is beautiful.

In Tracee’s words – “My mother is beautiful because she looks like she swallowed the sun. Because she created an extraordinary life by walking a path that did not exist before she came along. And because she has 5 children that love her deeply.


Watch the official video featuring more people sharing why they think their moms are beautiful and telling them in their own way.

    Yessss! ‘Nuff respect to this lagend. Before there was Beyonce, there was Diana. She was the whole package back then; like no other woman was before. #DianaRossLiving legend

    Makes me really sad, Tracee is not married or hooked up. She is such a lovely lady and my big sister in my head. I guess each to their own. I hope she finds true love. Love to Tracee and Diana!

      I second you. I have a super soft spot for her. She’s classy and different from ‘others’.
      I wish her and her mum happiness and joy.

      So until she is with a man that means she has found true love. So man = love?

    I can swear I felt a teardrop roll down my cheek. Such an emotional ad campaign. Loved the story of the one who tattooed her mom’s signature on her arm…and the last one…aaaahhh papiii. Hahaha. Oh, oh, and the one who’s mom told him to come get lasagna. In mom mode all day, everyday.
    All good mothers are definitely beautiful. No wonder we have 50 billion mother’s day in one year. haha
