'Mama Bear was in high gear' Selena's mum on daughter's kidney transplant

Selena Gomez's mum Mandy Teefey has opened up about her fears over her daughter's kidney transplant in a touching Instagram post.

The pop star revealed in an emotional Instagram post last week hat she had undergone a kidney transplant over the last few months in her fight against Lupus.

The 25 year old, who was diagnosed with Lupus in 2015, explained that she would be opening up about her "journey" soon as she thanked her best friend Francia Raisa's "ultimate gift and sacrifice".

And now her  proud mum shared a photo of the singer with her best friend and kidney donor Francia Raisa in the hospital - as she admitted she felt "helpless and scared" during the terrifying situation.

Her post read:

"This picture is one of the most breathtaking images that will live with me forever.

"For all those moments of not knowing if we were going up or going down, I can always come back to this picture and know we can always make it back up.

"As a mother I was helpless, scared and all I could do was pray for both of them, Francia's beautiful family.

"I am pretty sure I am banned from that hospital. Mama Bear was in high gear.

"Selena gained a kidney, I was able to keep my little girl, but I also gained another daughter....thank you to everyone who was there for Sel, Francia and our families.

"We survived from all the love, prayers and God."
