‘A cuddle from @melanielynskey is about the most wonderful thing in the world, and my daughter has a lifetime supply,’ Ritter wrote.

‘I’d be jealous but I’m too busy looking at these sweet faces and wondering how I came to be so lucky. Happy Mother’s day to the greatest person I know! I love you!’

Lynskey said the Raising Dion actor is ‘so helpful, so supportive, and he’s willing to travel with me so the family can be together.’

‘I do the same for him, but I’ve been working a lot recently, so he’s been making the sacrifice more often than I have,’ the Don’t Look Up actress admitted to People last Friday.

‘On the weekends, it’s just me and him. But when I’m away on location, we’ll have our amazing nanny come to work with us, and she’s my daughter’s favorite person. When I’m working, I have the support.’
