The 39-year-old actress wrote a heartwarming message to her five children—including Jared, Caleigh, and Yohan, her children with her American husband.
Andre and Kobe are her children with ex-husband Benjie Paras.
Jackie wrote, "My journey through motherhood hasn’t been easy. I started at 16, and feel like I’m coming full circle early at 39.
"From losing myself before I could even grow up, to knowing who I am and what I am really truly capable of.
"Today I find myself facing the most fulfilling and yet challenging times.
"I suddenly have two grown men in my life but because the Lord has equipped me to face anything that comes my way..
"I’m telling those who still want to put me down or stand in my way to make sure you bring it!"
Jackie promised to give them her unconditional love.
"I want all of my children to know with every ounce of their being that for as long as I am alive I will be here to make sure they are protected and nurtured and provided for, guided and understood and Respected but most importantly that they are UNCONDITIONALLY LOVED.
"That means I love you regardless of what any one says or makes you do, I love you regardless of whether you do what I say or do, I love you even when you make mistakes...
"I love you even when you say hurtful things, I love you even if you do what we said you shouldn’t, I love you even when you aren’t honest with me...
"I love you even if you smell bad, i love you even if you don’t say it to me, I love you even if you forget about me, I love you even more—when you don’t love yourself!!! I love you.
"You will all be mama's babies even when the day comes that that I can no longer be by your side. I will never stop loving you! Never."
Towards the end of her Mother's Day post, Jackie thanked everyone who guided her and supported her every step of the way including her American husband.
"Motherhood is tough, but I am tougher! I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for all of my children and the strength and love from our Lord!
"I’m grateful I get to be me and the mother I want to be with my husband who has helped nurture the lioness in me.
