Young Yellowstone star Brecken Merrill is among several celebrities to use social media to wish their mothers a special Mother’s Day.
Merrill plays Tate Dutton, the lone grandchild of Yellowstone Ranch owner John Dutton and son of Kayce and Monica Dutton.

He has quickly become a fan favorite through three seasons.
On Mother’s Day, Merrill and family treated mom to a sushi lunch and some quality time together. Brecken even wore a special outfit that may come back to haunt him — though he does make for an adorable Panda Bear.
“We took mom to sushi for Mother’s Day,” Merrill says in his social media post. He concludes the post’s caption with a sushi emoji.
