For 35 years, van Duuren's second mom worked for her family. So, when she celebrated her 70th birthday, the WBFF athlete decided to do something nice for the gogo.

So, she took her on a lavish trip to Cape Town, where they visited Robben Island, the Two Oceans Aquarium and some of the best local restaurants - to name only a couple of items on their bucket list.

"Today I’m taking my 2nd mother on her first holiday ever! She’s turning 70 and this is her first flight. She’s worked for my mom for 35 years and this is my present to her for helping me make the person who I am today. Woohoo!!!" Van Duuren wrote on Facebook.
