It wasn’t long before droves of Jackie’s famous friends commented on the post, including fellow radio announcer Fifi Box who wrote: ‘So beautiful you two.’  

‘Love this’ added celebrity fitness trainer Michelle Bridges, while publicist Roxy Jacenko commented: ‘Beautiful girls [love heart emoji].’ 

Earlier this month, Jackie revealed how she celebrated Mother’s Day this year, telling her listeners on The Kyle and Jackie O Show that Kitty had sweetly planned three days of surprises for her.

The celebrations began when Kitty planned an unusual surprise, which involved warming up a hot towel to help her mum relax.  

But the surprise didn’t exactly go to plan and resulted in Kitty making a mess. 

Jackie explained her daughter didn’t know how to properly warm the towel like they do at hotels or spas, and incorrectly used a large bath towel instead of a hand towel.

‘It’s so funny because when they’re at a young age Kyle, they don’t know how to cook meals and things like that,’ Jackie said.

‘She did want to make it super special for me so it started Friday night and she said, ‘You go into the bedroom and I’ll let you know when you can come out.”

Jackie then came out and saw the dripping wet towel soaking the floor, but she couldn’t be angry as Kitty sweetly offered to brush her hair.

Kitty then brought a platter out for her mum, which included cheese, grapes, watermelon and a bizarre cocktail of pinot grigio and diet tonic water – because she thought it was Jackie’s favourite drink. 

‘Because you appreciate the effort they go to, you just go ahead and do it,’ Jackie said. ‘I was like, ‘Oh okay, that’s so cute.’

Jackie’s co-host Kyle Sandilands thought it was sweet that Jackie went along with it all, despite the fact Kitty had missed the mark.

‘Aw, what a mother. I love that about you. You’ll be uncomfortable for her happiness,’ Kyle remarked.

Jackie said she was shocked by Kitty’s plans, admitting: ‘She was going to so much effort. She’s so beautiful, thoughtful and caring.’ 

‘I was thrilled, even though it was hard. I couldn’t bring myself to do the pinot grigio and diet tonic water,’ Jackie added with a laugh.

On the third day of celebrations, the pair visited the cinema to purchase an array of movie snacks, spending over $100 on three buckets of popcorn, choc tops and soft drinks, spending more than $100. 

Rather than watching a movie at the cinema, they left to watch some flicks at home.
