On her first Mother's Day as a single mom-of-five, Tori Spelling celebrated the women who brought her here in the first place — Candy Spelling.

Tori took to Instagram on Sunday, May 12, to wish her 78-year-old mom "Happy Mother's Day" alongside a series of throwback snaps, one of which featured the Beverly Hills, 90210 star being held by Candy as a baby girl.

Tori Spelling gave her mom, Candy, a sweet shout-out for Mother's Day.

The second photo showcased a more recent image of Tori, 50, posing beside her mom in coordinated black-and-white outfits.

"I still stand by this look...the wildflower & me rise," she captioned the Instagram Story, seemingly a fan of her body-hugging black dress covered in white daisies. Tori also had little flowers in her short blonde hair to complete the ensemble.

In another upload, Tori wrote, "The flower doesn't fall far from the bush ... yup, think on that one," alongside another image of her as a child posing in a white formal dress beside her matching mama.

Ending on a more serious — but still a bit silly — note, the Scary Movie 2 actress expressed: "Thank you for teaching me strength and resilience mommy — and how to set a proper dinner party table and always how to spot a fake purse."
