I was sitting on the couch several years ago watching Mad Men with my mom when she suddenly said out of nowhere: “I love your father and all, but if Jon Hamm showed up on my doorstep and offered to take me away, I’d be gone in a heartbeat.”
So there’s really no mystery about who my mom’s celebrity crush is…
And we all have them, right? Well, so do our parents, believe it or not.
This tweet got a pretty epic thread kicked off about the celebs that moms and dads out there are really sweet on…
Do you guys know your parents celebrity crushes? My dad goes up for Julia Roberts and Halle Berry. My mom loooooooves Michael Strahan. Who are your parents tryna smash?

3. That’s kind of strange, but okay…
The Cuomo brothers are now a hot commodity.
My dad was like, “oh, your mom’s watching her BOYFRIEND on TV.” “Who?” I said. “Cuomo.” “Which one Dad?” “BOTH OF ‘EM!”

4. Mother would never!
Dad, on the other hand…
My dad: Chaka Khan.
My mom: None. She’s a God-fearing woman who’s never smashed or even thought of smashing anyone ever.

5. Here’s the deal.
Mom cutting to the chase.
Actual thing my mom said to me “I’m straight but if I were with a woman, it would be Queen Latifah” 🤔 Linda Carter for my dad.

6. Mom likes the younger guys.
Haha, the Property Brothers?!?!
Regina King is my dad’s wife in his mind. Julia Roberts is I think many black dads favorite white woman. My mom likes a younger man: Micheal B Jordan and Sterling K Brown. And the Property Brothers really bring something out of her. Lol

9. She moved on.
But Ricky might still be #1.
My mother is 86. She crushed on Ricky Martin 4-ever until I had to tell her 😄. She still loves her some Ricky but has since moved on to Pitbull 😂. Mom’s a piece of work 🤪🤣
