It’s the weekend for celebrating motherhood and Michelle Obama is celebrating her mom with a whole building.
The former first lady announced Friday with a social media video that she would be naming a new exhibit at the Obama Presidential Center after her mother, Marian Robinson. The “Opening the White House” exhibit, which will be dedicated to Robinson, will include replicas of some of the white house’s main hosting spaces including the East Room, the Blue Room and the South Lawn.
“My mother gave me that nonstop, unconditional love that was so important for me to grow up. In so many ways she fostered in me a deep sense of confidence in who I was and who I could be,” Obama said in the video.
Obama said the new exhibit will be “infused with so many of the values” her mother taught her: community, family, bringing people in and creating a welcoming space.

Shay Mitchell, who is pregnant with her second child, posted a picture from a photoshoot with her 2-year-old daughter Atlas.
“For some of us this day is dedicated to how sweet it is to love or be loved unconditionally,” Mitchell said in a lengthy tribute to mothers. “For others, this day is a reminder of the relationship they have longed to have, don’t have, or can’t have. While social media can have its upsides, days like today can feel dark and heavy for people who aren’t experiencing the public joy their friends are.”
She continued: “Moms who are doing it alone and moms with a village of support, I celebrate each and every one of you.”
Mitchell also stressed a message about a woman having a choice over becoming a mother, presumably in response to a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion that indicated the court may upend the 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade that established a constitutional right to abortion.
“At the end of the day, you should only become a mom if YOU want to become a mom. This very important decision should be just that. A choice,” the actress said. “Atlas — home is wherever you are. Thank you for making me a mom.”
