Justin Bieber's mom, Pattie Mallette, is being inundated with Happy Birthday wishes Monday on Twitter for giving birth to the pop star.
Patricia Lynn Pattie Mallette was 18 years old when she gave birth to Bieber and reared Justin as a single mother, although her parents helped out in taking care of the Boyfriend singer.
