The mother-daughter relationship can be complicated. Maybe you're best friends or maybe you don't get along as well as you'd like. Either way, moms and daughters can still have admiration for each other despite their differences. Iris sits down with some of our favorite duos, ages 6 to 89, to see what they appreciate the most about each other.

Woman And Egg Donor Mother Share Singing Talent

Woman And Egg Donor Mother Share Singing Talent

Genes are everything, and there's no denying that these two are related! In college at the University of Southern California, Amy Throckmorton became an egg donor to help a couple start a family. Elizabeth Gaba was born to loving parents that told her the story of her birth, and at 18, Elizabeth decided to find her mother. Funnily enough, Elizabeth attends USC and is in the same a cappella group Amy once performed in. When the pair met up, they discovered their voices blended pretty much perfectly.

Daddy-Daughter Dance In Honor Of Last Day Of Chemo

Daddy-Daughter Dance In Honor Of Last Day Of Chemo

Please get the tissues! We're tearing up watching this adorable video and hearing the emotional story behind it. On Aug. 2, 2-year-old Phoenix Thompson was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and required immediate aggressive chemotherapy. Since then, parents Christina and Brett have been going back and forth from their home to the hospital to care for their other four children. On Phoenix's last day of her first round of chemo, Brett surprised her with a princess dress and a special daddy-daughter dance. The touching moment happened about a week ago but has since gone viral, and we can definitely see why. Phoenix, nicknamed Phee, also got a visit from singer Jason Mraz. Although these videos have been happy moments for Phee and family, it's very hard to believe a 2-year-old could be going through such a hard battle with cancer.
