Michelle shared her support for Regina following the loss of her son

While being a single parent was tough for Regina, she said Ian was her pride and joy and her proudest achievement. 

They were incredibly close and Ian adored his famous mother. They often made red carpet appearances together and at the 2019 Golden Globes he gushed to E! News about their bond. 

"She's just a super mom," he told the outlet. "She doesn't really let bad work days or anything come back and ruin the time that we have. It's really awesome to have a mother who I can enjoy spending time with."
