Saturday Night Live viewers went wild for Dan Levy, of Schitt’s Creek fame, when he made his hosting debut on Saturday night.

Dan was joined by Phoebe Bridgers and even his father, Eugene Levy, made a cameo appearance from inside a perspex “isolation” box. 

And one person who was fully supportive of the show’s news recruit was his mother - Deborah Divine.

She shared a powerful message on Twitter, hinting that her son suffered at the hands of bullies.

Deborah wrote, “This goes out to the bully punks at Camp WTF who made life miserable for a certain cabin-mate back in the the summer of '96 - just because he was different. Well, after all these years I have just 7 words to say to you: "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!" @danjlevy.”

He simply responded, “Moms” with a love-heart emoji.

It’s not the first time Dan’s mother praised her son - who, alongside his father, Eugene, earned five Golden Globe Award nominations earlier this week.

Back in April when the Schitt’s Creek finale aired, she paid tribute to her “brilliant little boy” in a glowing social media post. 

“Today I regret every single second of worry back in the uninformed 80's-wondering how the world was going to treat my brilliant little boy who loved to twirl. Little did I know that he was going to kick that old world's ass to the curb and create a brand new one. @danjlevy," she wrote.

That’s one proud mum!
