Maya Rudolph returned to Saturday Night Live, with an opening monologue celebrating moms.

Rudolph, who left SNL in 2007, explained why she was the perfect choice to host on Mother’s Day weekend.

“It’s so good to be back and for the Mother’s Day episode,” she said to applause. “For me it’s extra special because I am a four-time mom. That’s right, I have four beautiful kids that I know of.”

Kenan Thompson, who was dressed like celebrity stylist Law Roach, then appeared on stage as “Mr. Infinity Decor.”

Thompson told the audience he didn’t come “to play,” he was there “to slay.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you — mother of the house of Rockefeller!” he said about Rudolph.

The Bridesmaids and Loot actress then belted out a catchy Mother’s Day-themed tune, complete with backup dancers.

“It’s Mother’s Day, y’all. Today we celebrate all kinds of mothers — stepmothers, godmothers, mothers from another brother, Dance Moms, Octomoms,” she rapped.

Dressed in an embellished black bodysuit, Rudolph, 51 flexed, vogued, and strutted around Studio 8H.

Earlier, the show’s cast kicked off the episode by bringing their moms on stage.

Among the comics appearing alongside their mothers were Kenan Thompson, Andrew Dismukes, Chloe Fineman, Punkie Johnson, Mikey Day, Chloe Troast, Molly Kearney, Michael Longfellow, Devon Walker, James Austin Johnson, Marcello Hernández, Ego Nwodim, Sarah Sherman, Bowen Yang, and Colin Jost.

At the end of the cold open, the moms all joined their kids on stage and delivered the show’s signature line: “Live From New York, it’s Saturday Night!”
