Is there anyone more important or influential in our lives other than our moms? For some famous Latinas, the answer to that question is a definite "no." For them, their moms are everything. Thanks to their selflessness, hard work, and invaluable support, these moms have become their daughters' heroes. A lot of these moms have sacrificed so much in order to help their baby girls achieve their goals and dreams.

Without their love, these stars perhaps wouldn't shine as bright as they do and wouldn't have gone as far as they have in their careers. The bond between a mother and daughter is so important in a woman's life and it often sets the tone for how her relationship with her own daughter will be.
