She is a devoted mother of three children and loves showering her Instagram account with photos of her family.
But for Mother’s Day weekend, Eva Amurri treated herself to a long-awaited day off from parenthood.
In a video posted to her Instagram account, Eva, 36, explained why she decided to let her ex-husband Kyle Martino have the kids for the weekend, despite it falling on Mother’s Day.
‘I love my kids and I deserve to celebrate me!’ Eva Amurri treated herself to a long-awaited day off from parenthood for Mother’s Day weekend
‘I’m divorced and I have three kids,’ she said in a video posted to her Instagram account. ‘This year, Mother’s Day just so happened to fall on a weekend when my ex was scheduled to have the kids. After thinking it over, did I challenge the schedule? No I didn’t,’ she said.
‘Because, my friends, I finally realized after seven Mother’s Days that what I really want for Mother’s Day weekend is a break from mothering. And contrary to what society tells us, it’s okay to want that.’
In the video’s caption, Eva described 2021 Mother’s Day as the ‘best one yet.’
‘Thriving with this little break. I love my kids AND I deserve to celebrate ME!! oh and the kids get back late afternoon on Sunday to celebrate,’ she continued.

‘Can any other mamas relate? Or do you love spending this weekend w the whole fam? There is no right answer by the way, to each her own!’
On Mother’s Day, Eva enjoyed lunch with her new boyfriend Ian Hock before reuniting with her children at home.
The Banger Sisters actress, who is the daughter of Susan Sarandon, posted videos of her relaxing day to her Instagram Stories, starting with her scrumptious meal and followed by videos of her children playing at home with their father.
