Your mom will 100% kill you if you dare to say that.

As EthwanChenobi pointed out, the sentence does not sound appropriate to the readers, including me and him as the proficient Chinese linguist. How about these sentences:

  • 更老的是我的妈妈
  • 更老的是我的母亲

You don't have to include "的“ in this case. 我妈妈 alone is fine.

"老的是我母亲" (or "妈[妈]", which is more like "mom") is sufficient here. The comparison can be implied in Chinese.
