After returning to her native Longford for the festive season, Maura Higgins surprised her Irish mum with a brand new car, a white Mercedes Benz with an approximate retail value of over £50,000.
Taking to Instagram on Christmas Day, the 31-year-old shared a photo of her mum, Sharon Higgins, who appeared to be in tears.
”You deserve everything and more… Merry Christmas mammy.”
Another celebrity who gave his mum the heartfelt present of an expensive car is the American actor and entrepreneur, Dwayne Johnson.
The star, better known as The Rock, captioned the big reveal: “She got a few good ugly cries in.
”Then once her grand babies joined her inside the car.
”She was overcome with pure joy joy.
”Hell, even Hobbs, my dog wanted to peep the whip with his new Christmas chicken.”
He went on to write: “I’m so grateful I can do this kinda stuff for my mom, who’s had one helluva life.
”I don’t take any of it for granted.
”Neither does she.”Dwayne’s daughters also took part in the big surprise[/caption]
As well as cars, our favourite celebrities also like to splurge on houses for their parents who raised them.
Amongst these is the former boyband star Zayn Malik, who in 2013 bought his mum a new house in their hometown of Bradford.
The touching scenes can be seen in the One Direction’s movie, This Is Us, where mum Trisha and two of Zayn’s three sisters are visiting the mansion for the first time.Trisha Malik and Zayn Malik attend The Asian Awards 2015[/caption]
Another British star to have treated his mum to a new place to live in is the Manchester City player, Raheem Sterling.
Despite often being portrayed as loving lavish lifestyle and diamonds, the footballer proved everyone wrong after buying his mum a 10-bedroom house just outside of London.
”If anybody deserves to be happy, it’s my mum,” he said in an interview with The Players’ Tribune in 2018.
”She came to this country with nothing and put herself through school cleaning bathrooms and changing bed sheets, and now she’s the director of a nursing home.
”And her son plays for England.”
It seems as if 2013 was all about buying houses – the global superstar, Beyonce, was also amongst those celebrities who went all out and bought her mum, Tina Knowles, a sensational mansion.
The $6 million property sits in Houston and features amenities like a mirror elevator, cast-stone columns and more.
A more unusual gift came from the Geordie Shore star, Chloe Ferry, who treated her mum to cosmetic filler in 2019.
Like her daughter, Liz appeared to have become totally unrecognisable after a drastic makeover.
Compared to her first appearance on the show in 2016, she now had visible lip and face fillers and bright white veneers.
Liz also had changed her hair and style – from a brunette wearing sporty jumpers, she returned alongside her daughter as a glamorous bleached blonde with a brand new chic wardrobe.
Chloe documented the treatment she had taken her mum to on Instagram, where the mum could be seen sitting calmly as needles were being put in her lips.Chloe Ferry and her lookalike mum[/caption]
