Just ahead of Mother's Day 2017, Gap has released a heart-warming new ad called 'Mama Said.' Not only does the ad feature an all-star cast, but it also celebrates every kind of mom.

The 'Mama Said' ad is a short film directed by Liv Tyler, who also stars in the ad. The message behind the ad is celebrating the joys of motherhood, with appearances by famous moms such as Candice Swanepoel, Coco Rocha and Jurnee Smollett-Bell. The ad also stars a lesbian couple, Photographer Cass Bird and director Ali Bird, alongside their adorable children Leo and Mae.

While it is common for brands to release special ads around holidays such as Mother's Day, Gap's inclusive campaign shows that the brand is also using the occasion to show its support for LGBTQ rights.
