Singer Rihanna is 30 and she has taken time out to appreciate her mum for giving her life.
Sharing a childhood photo of herself alongside and a picture of her older self, the multi-award winning singer wrote on Instagram;
”10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter! Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom! Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!
I thank God for perfectly hand picking you to be my mother when He sent my spirit to you! You are the greatest! Thank you! #
