"I’m a mother to Simon, Ryan, and Randy...and all the former contestants, you know I really play that role. That’s not a role to play actually, it’s who I am authentically," Paula told Hollyscoop at the Guide Dogs of America event on Friday where she presented a guide dog to Scott MacIntyre as part of the official kick-off event for National Guide Dog Month.
She added, "I love what I do and I love watching the talent emerge into their own potential, it’s a wonderful thing to see. As far as my mom goes on mothers day, my sister and I are going to let her decide what she wants to do and we follow along with her and make it happen, because when we make plans it doesn’t always go right…we let her make the plans.
Scott MacIntyre, who was born almost completely blind, won over hearts during this season of American Idol, admits he's upset that he won't be able to spend this special day with his mother.
Scott admits that he's had "some amazing Mother’s Days in the past, but it’s really weird because this is the first year" he won't be able to spend time with her. But he added, that he's "gonna find some time" to make it up to her.
Hollyscoop wants to wish all the mothers of the world a very happy, healthy and safe Mother’s Day!
