9 Celebrity Dads Who Are Winning at Being Fathers

3 years ago

Idols to millions by day and big papa bears by night, some celebrities have found the perfect off-screen and on-screen balance. Despite their busy schedules, these fathers make sure to spend enough time with their little ones and spoil them with love.

We at Bright Side have listed some of our favorite famous dads who may just be a jack of all trades.

1. Dwayne Johnson

The 6’5″ retired professional wrestler and actor is a sweetheart to his daughters, Simone, Jasmine Lia, and Tiana, and is often seen spending time with them. His eldest daughter has followed in his footsteps by entering into the world of WWE, and he’s very supportive.

2. Jason Momoa

The Aquaman heartthrob is a daddy to Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, Lola Iolani Momoa; and stepfather to Zoë Kravitz. Despite being busy, Momoa says he is a P.E. coach for his children and takes them to skateboard on ramps, climb walls, throw tomahawks, and shoot bows and arrows often. He constantly makes an effort to be a better father.

3. Jeff Goldblum

Jeff Goldblum might be late to the dad club but he’s already a pro at putting the kids to bed at 7 p.m. before jetting off to award functions. He has 2 sons, Charlie Ocean and River Joe.

4. John Legend

The American singer and philanthropist is a daddy to daughter Luna and son Miles. Not only does he constantly share photos of him having cute playdates with his children, but he also doesn’t mind taking them to work.

5. Ricky Martin

The King of Latin Pop, Ricky Martin, has 4 children: a daughter and 3 sons with his husband, Jwan Yosef. He revealed that one time, when his son asked if he came from his belly, he told him that he was in his heart and is still there. His children are his favorite critics, and to him, fatherhood comes before anything else.

6. Jared Padalecki

Padalecki and his wife have 3 children together: Thomas, 8; Austin, 7; and daughter Odette, who’s 3. Having been busy with Supernatural for the past 15 years and recently starting a new show, Padalecki still finds time for his kids, even if it means he has to multitask.

7. Ryan Phillippe

Even though Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon separated years ago, he still loves their daughter, Ava, and son, Deacon, dearly. The ex-couple shares joint custody of the children and co-parent them during holidays.

8. Will Smith

Following in Smith’s path, his children, Trey, Jaden, and Willow have gained quite a fan following already. But that doesn’t mean they get any special treatment. The actor believes that getting good grades isn’t everything and fully supports his children’s careers.

9. Jensen Ackles

This 42-year-old actor has 3 children: Justice Jay Ackles, Zeppelin Bram Ackles, and Arrow Rhodes Ackles. He takes time to teach his kids, does house chores with them, and, of course, plays and sings with them as every dad should!
