Is using 的 for this correct? It sounds far too personal to warrant needing 的? Would 我爱我妈妈 be a better structure?

Maybe it is Correct. I never tried.

Yes that should also work but it doesn't accept it :(

It is more correct to leave out 的. As of July 2020, duolingo accepts leaving it out.

When I typed in "I love my mother" it said that another correct solution was "I love my mother, which is strange.

In another case "我爱我的弟弟和妹妹" was not accepted; the accepted version was "我爱弟弟和妹妹". The lack of consistency can be confusing to me but probably to others too.

    yeah usually you would add 'de' before 'didi', I'm thirteen and studying Chinese since I was five.

    Is it possible to refer parents as just 妈 rather than 妈妈. Same for 爸?
