Which of these is better?

You are the best mom anyone could ever have.

You are the best mom anyone could ever had.

I am a bit confused with these and if they are in a different tense then kindly elaborate that too. And if it wrong in any other way, please mention what. Thank you.

"could" is a modal verb, and it requires a short infinitive after it.

So it is correct to say:

You are the best mom anyone could ever have.


I think it is more usual to say:

You are the best ... anyone could wish for.

or

You are the best ... anyone could ask for.

  • to add, you can say that the second one should be You are the best mom anyone has ever had – Khushraj Rathod Mar 6 at 11:05
  • that is correct also, but the meaning is different – virolino Mar 6 at 11:31
  • Your explanation about what's correct is right, certainly. I think what's more usual depends heavily on dialect. – SamBC Mar 6 at 15:41
