Singer/actress/icon/dream BFF Selena Gomez won our hearts Sunday night (August 10) at the Teen Choice Awards when she delivered an emotional acceptance speech after being presented with the Ultimate Choice Award.

After thanking her fans for supporting her, "especially this month," Gomez appeared to choke up.

"There’s one thing I want to say: I want to thank my mom so much because she’s the greatest human being in the world and she’s strong and she’s given up her life for me and she’s so beautiful," Gomex said. "I want all of you to love your mom and give her everything because she’s incredible."

Gesturing to the surfboard, she said, "This is for you. This never belongs to me. This is for you."
