Recently, she took to the gram to show off her pretty mother in a fur coat as she hugged herself tightly in a wide-eyed grin. Then the "Law & Order: SVU" star told her audience that her mother passed down some hugging traits to her. The post read:

"#NationalHuggingDay I'm a hugger #IGotItFromMyMama."

Many Instagram followers swooped in with hearty comments, detailing the mother and daughter's facial resemblance and likeness.

A few fans took to celebrating the deceased entertainer and referred to her as a "sweet mom." This would be the most suitable adjective for the actress's late mum as she once revealed in an interview about how loving her mother was.

Mariska reveals that her mother's memory will never elude her with her actions, showing how invaluable a love between a mother and a child can seem.

Although she was a toddler when her mother passed away, her admiration for Jayne is priceless. Without viewing her from the public's perception, she said:

"My mother was this amazing, beautiful, glamorous sex symbol, but… she played the violin and had a 160 IQ...She was an inspiration. She had this appetite for life...I share that with her."

Having survived the car crash that claimed the life of Jayne in 1967, the 53-year-old actress also revealed what life has been like for her without a mother figure.
