Girls creator Lena Dunham’s mother and well-known artist Laurie Simmons has just started tweeting regularly. So far, she’s been signing tweets to her daughter “Love, Mom.” It’s exactly what a mom on Twitter would do.

In fact, celeb parents are just as silly, cute, embarrassing, and interactive on Twitter as your own Twitter-savvy folks. (My dad responds to all my friends. Joy.)

Check out these celebrity ‘rents who love to tweet their star children.

@billyraycyrus since your text and email obviously aren’t working would you like to talk like this?

Also, if you’re looking to kill a few hours doing nothing, pop over to this Twitter feed called “Celeb Parents” and look at pictures of normal people and their famous offspring. It’s weirdly hypnotizing.
