Mother's Day: Robbie Amell and his mom reflect on their relationship and favourite memories

In celebration of Mother’s Day, Hello! sat down with Robbie Amell, the star of The Flash and recent inductee into the list of Canada's Most Beautiful people. With his mother in tow, the pair chatted about their loving relationship, their favourite shared memories and the lottery.

While the Canadian actor is now based in Los Angeles, where he lives with his actress fiancée Italia Ricci, the bond he shares with his mom is just as strong as ever. “As far as being an example and a role model, my mom has always been the number one person I look up to,” says Robbie, who grew up in Toronto.

Happy Mother's Day to the kindest person I've ever met. Thank you for everything mom.
