An image for the cast of Instant Mom with Tia Mowry.

A mother cares, loves, protects and puts others needs before her own.

She wipes away tears and has a bottomless heart and spirit. We celebrate these incredible beings on Sunday 8 May. 

Here are some of the moms you can you look forward to seeing on DStv.

Tia Mowry on Instant Mom

Sometimes you don’t plan to be a mom. Stephanie Phillips (Tia Mowry) is a prime example of this. When she married Charlie, she inherited three step children. See how she handles motherhood on Instant Mom weekdays at 18:35 on BET.

Judy Reyes

Devious Maids’ Zoila (Judy Reyes) is a hard-working mom who has also introduced her teenage daughter, Valentia, to the trade and together they look after the rich. See their relationship in Devious Maids Sundays at 19:00 on VUZU.

Jane Fonda

Viola Fields (Jane Fonda) is a protective mom who struggles with detachment issues as her son prepares to marry the love of his life, Charlie (Jennifer Lopez), in Monster in Law on Sunday 8 May at 21:30 on SONY.

Another mom who seems to be over protective is Beauty Ngwenya (Thuli Thabethe) who is mom to Qaphela (Abdul Khoza) and Ntombizama (Linda Mtoba). See how she handles being a mom and being married to a taxi boss on Isibaya weekdays at 20:30 on Mzansi Magic. (Also available on Catch Up)

Gloria Delgado Pritchett (Sofia Vergara) is a fun loving and comedic mom who has a flair for the dramatics. Watch her on Modern Family Tuesdays at 18:00 on M-Net City.  (Also available on DStv Catch Up)
