The first image showed Jackie rocking a headscarf and sixties-style mini dress. In the second, she was beaming for the camera with a smile her daughter clearly inherited. The third was from when Jackie was pregnant and she playfully posed in a gorilla mask. 

Fans commented: "She's so beautiful like you," and, "can totally see the resemblance between you and your momma! She is beautiful. Happy Mother’s Day to her."

Christina - who was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1975 but later moved to Fairfax, Virginia and spent time in Idaho too - admitted she was somewhat of a goth punk at school and this made her an outsider. 

Christina thanked her mom in a heartfelt post 

Talking to The Guardian, she said: "We had a locker bay, and every time I went down there to get books out of my locker people would sit on top and spit at me.

"It was like Lord of the Flies. There was always some kid getting pummeled and people cheering."

She refused to conform, however, and instead thought: "I don't want those people to be my friends. I'm never going to be friends with the people who beat up a kid while everyone is cheering them on. I hate them."

Christina said she was a goth at school 

Last year, Christina returned to her childhood home in Idaho for a heartfelt reason as she lost her dear friend, and "second mom," Mayz. 

Alongside a photo of her outside the home she wrote: "This weekend I went back to #twinfallsidaho to celebrate the life of my dear dear friend Mayz.

"She was like a second mother to me and one of the most beautiful, open, loving, accepting, pure souls you’ll ever meet with the most loving husband and children you can imagine."

Her message was met with an outpouring of support from her fans who sent well-received prayers.
