Well, this was certainly an adorable moment!

Rihanna was given the inaugural Icon Award at Sunday night's American Music Awards in Los Angeles -- and what better person to present it to her than her own mother.

"I know the journey in your career has not always been an easy one, but tonight I applaud and admire  you for being so strong," her mom Monica said during her moving speech. Watch it in full above.

After accepting her trophy, a humble Riri thanked her fans and her team and exclaimed, "I can't believe that at 25 years old, I'm holding the Icon Award!" 

We can't either! Congrats, Rihanna!
