Chuck Norris’ mother marks her 101st birthday.

Chuck’s mother, who turns 101 this year, is still his strongest supporter.

Chuck Norris rose to fame in the 1970s as a martial arts master, belt-holder, and great actor. His most remarkable achievements, though, are as a dedicated father and a thankful spouse.

The great actor is never slow to praise Wilma Norris, the woman who gave him life. He praises his mother for being a family pillar and for raising him and his two brothers solely by her.
