After 15 years on the hit TV series NCIS and 352 episodes in total, fans of the show may think they know everything about one of the most prominent female cast members – Pauley Perrette. But one of the little-known aspects of the actress’ life is how much her mom meant to her.


Sadly, the 49-year-old lost her mother, Donna Bell, to cancer back in 2002. Since then, she has been keeping her mom’s legacy through opening a bakeshop in 2012 and co-authoring a cookbook of her mother’s special recipes.

On Mother’s Day, the star took to Twitter to pay a tribute to her late parent. Perrette shared two pictures – one of herself with her mom and one of herself with her dogs. Why dogs? The actress is the best foster mom to her rescue pets.

She added a sweet caption:

Really missing my mom today and really loving my [Rescue Dogs] Happy Mother's Day to moms of humans and animals.

The post was so touching that Perrette’s followers could not help but support her. They rushed to the platform to wish her happy Mother’s Day and tell the actress that her mom would be proud of her daughter.
