8 Celebrity Fathers Who Share How Happy They Are to Have a Family

When you have difficulties in believing in a happy family life, there is a lot of proof among celebrities that can change your mind. Of course, it’s not easy, but the main thing is you need to put in the work when it comes to your relationship, and then you get the most precious time.

We at Bright Side are inspired by some celebrities who’ve managed to build strong family ties and share what they say about their better halves.

1. Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynold and Blake Lively are a good example of a Hollywood family. Together they have 3 daughters and Ryan shares how he actually feels about it: “It’s a dream. They’re the best. They’re my buddies. I love it.”

Blake plays a huge role in his life, and heartfelt posts on Instagram prove it: “You’re the heart and soul of every moment this family shares. I’m grateful for the light and for the kindness you smuggle into each and every second of our lives. I see you in the eyes of our children.”

2. Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth is not just a successful actor, but he is a brilliant father and husband. He is not afraid to say that everything he has is thanks to his wife, Elsa Pataky: “My wife definitely put aside her career. She had done, like 20 films in Europe in French, Spanish, and then we had kids, and she said, ’This is your bit, do it, and I’m here for you, supporting.’” And Chris is very thankful for that.

3. Prince William

Prince William opened up, saying that “having children is the biggest life-changing moment, but it’s also one of the scariest.” He doesn’t deny that it can be hard to have a family, but his wife is always there for him: “Me and Catherine particularly, we support each other, and we go through those moments together and we kind of evolve and learn together.”

Once, Prince William said to the public: “[Kate] has the coldest hands ever. But as they say, ’Cold hands, warm heart.’” Although it’s a joke, there’s so much warmth in his words.

4. Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon and Nancy Juvonen married in 2007 and have had 2 kids via a surrogate. Being a father for Jimmy is “the most exciting, amazing thing.” He says that his life has never been this cool.

Nancy is that person who made it happen: “I’d be nothing without my wife. She’s the coolest. She’s the greatest. She is the smartest. She’s the funniest. I love her so much. She’s like the — it’s like your best friend for the rest of your life.”

5. Hugh Jackman


Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness have been married for decades. The actor says: “When I met Deb, it was 10 times better than my single life. And she had confidence in herself. I had a massive crush on her instantly.”

Hugh and Deborra have 2 children and both were adopted shortly after birth: “Sure there are challenges, but everyone’s in the right place with the right people. It sounds airy-fairy, but it’s something we feel very deeply.”

6. John Krasinski

John Krasinski is very much in love with his wife Emily Blunt: “For me, the best days of my life started when I met my wife — that’s the truth, it’s not just me saying it because it sounds nice on a card. She’s one of the coolest people, she’s so talented, she’s beautiful, and she’s certainly out of my league.”

John shares that his wife is his hero. They have 2 daughters together.

7. Matthew McConaughey

Here is one more actor who found peace and happiness in family life. Matthew McConaughey spends lots of time with his wife and children, and it looks like he adores it: “If you go deep in a rom-com, you can sink the ship. In my life, though, I was going very deep. I found the love of my life in Camila. We had a newborn coming. I had more things to get angry about, laugh about, have more joy about, and be sad about.”

8. Pierce Brosnan

Pierce Brosnan was married twice, but he found happiness again with American journalist Keely Shaye Smith. The couple has 2 sons together, Dylan and Paris.

They have been married for more than 20 years: “I had a great marriage which sadly had its own ending, and I was lucky enough to find love again. We were meant to find each other. I thank God for her every day.”

Do you believe in love for life? Would you prefer a family or the single life?
