Nate Berkus' Mom, Nancy Golden, Is Really That Awesome (PHOTOS)

There's no denying that Nate Berkus totally loves his mom, Nancy Golden. As a special Mother's Day treat, the interior designer opened up to InStyle about how his "fearless" mother encourages him to be brave every day:

There's something about my mother that permeates the world around her. She's fearless in that she's always been exactly the woman she wanted to be. That bravery didn't come in the form of advice, but as an example that I try to follow to this day.


Berkus has credited his mother, who was also an interior designer, for inspiring him to go into the business. We can only imagine what he and fiancé Jeremiah Brent have planned for the big day on Sunday.
