In a recent post, Marla paid tribute to her father with a photo of them on her wedding day.
‘First. It’s harder than I imagined, to be honest. I like this photo because it was exactly like that for us. You probably told me not to screw this up because you really loved @alecpuro. Miss you today, tomorrow, forever and always daddy. Xo,” she posted.

Dude, where’s my car? actress recalled the advice a stranger gave her in her early days of motherhood when she “struggled” in the market.
‘Don’t blink, you might just miss it. When my oldest daughter was a baby, a woman in the market saw me struggling and said these words to me. Right now this didn’t resonate with me because I was tired, I was frustrated and I was doing everything wrong. (Or so I thought.)

“I didn’t quite understand it at the time, but no real words were ever spoken. Somehow my babies aren’t babies anymore. Every day they need me less. Time is moving faster than I can keep up with, but now that our babies are children soon to be adults, I am just endlessly proud to be their mother.
‘To the struggling mothers, the grieving mothers, the stepmothers; the tired mothers, the single mothers, the fertility fighters, the foster mothers, or anyone who misses their mother today… my heart is with you. Happy mothersday.’
