“Every day of motherhood, I feel so extremely grateful that I am able to provide for my son,” she said.

Britton also said that she was “stunned and horrified” by the conditions that other mothers must face in Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen.

Britton asked her fans to join her in helping these families in honor of Mother’s Day.
