Sarah Michelle Gellar has the most adorable reaction to ‘the gays’ calling her ‘mother’

Sarah Michelle Gellar, who recently learned what the phrase “mother” means, has reacted adorably to the title being bestowed upon her by the gays.

While at a press event for Wolf Pack, Gellar’s new Paramount+ fantasy series, the assembled homosexuals began shouting “mother” at the actress.

She asked what it meant, and was told: “When the gays love a woman, [she’s] a mother!” leading the Buffy star to update her Instagram bio to simply: “Mother.”

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Gellar was asked: “You have recently learned that the gay community refer to you as ‘mother’. Does Freddie [Prinze Jr.] know about this title?”

“I actually told Freddie (Gellar’s husband and Scooby Doo co-star) that from now on, I only want to be referred to as ‘The Mother’. No just ‘Mother’, I might actually change it to ‘The Mother’.”

Gellar continued by heaping praise on the LGBTQ+ community.
