In the tweet, the English star shared a gif of a woman walking through a parking lot with shopping bags on both arms.
Jackson, 41, replied with dollar-bill emojis.
Turner-Smith’s splurge came nearly two weeks after George Floyd was killed when police officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee into the Minneapolis resident’s neck for nearly nine minutes. Floyd’s death has since sparked worldwide protests supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Dear Jodie, On this most special of mothers days I want to thank you for the being the light that you are,” the Canadian star captioned the May post. “For the passion with which you threw yourself into nurturing and protecting our child when she was in your womb,” captioned a photo of his wife holding their daughter. “For the dedication and will you showed bringing her into the world. … Thank you for making me a father. For trusting me enough to embark on this journey together. I am humbled more and more every day by that. I love you. I love seeing you enter the pantheon of mothers. And I look forward to walking this path by your side as we nurture this little engine of joy you have blessed the world with.”
