While mortifying parents are pretty damn relatable, knowing that celebrity parents are just like ours—and that celebrity parents text just like our parents— is honestly a little comforting.

Answering yes or no to personal questions can be tricky because if you say "No" it means whenever you say "No comment" that kind of becomes your default "Yes". But since I'm doing press for the next few days, I didn't want to have to answer the same question over and over. So instead, I'm going to let my text conversation with my Asian mom help me out.✌️#Colberto
17. Miranda Cosgrove’s mom who is a whole mood.
18. And finally, Lil Nas X‘s dad who is #DadGoals.
my dad calls or texts me after every performance/ appearance just to say i killed it. i love this man so much.
