Spotlight on Dads! Remember all those times we've robbed our papas of a good night's sleep, or the last $20 bill in his wallet? Well we're lucky enough to get a special day out of the year to honor fathers and father figures alike, a day to celebrate fatherhood and the influence of fathers in society today.
Knockout Image is dedicating a special post to all dads this weekend, as a tribute to them for all they have sacrificed for us and the joy and fun they have brought into our lives.
And since being a good dad is something that never falls out of style, we're getting the ball rolling by sharing some of our favorite Hollywood dads!
Father to Pax, Maddoz, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne, Brad Pitt seems to always have his hands full. He even responded to People magazine, "Watching your children grwo and evolve, it's the most beautiful things you can experience... I feel like the richest man alive since I've become a father." Now that's what we call a proud and loving papa!
Will admit that the world of fatherhood has been something of a deep uncertainty to him, but as a father to Trey, Jaden, and Willow, he think he's been able to master it just fine. Even wife Jada brags about her husband on Essence, saying "What makes Will the best father in the world to me is that he's there, not just there in a way that's traditional. The emotional support he offers his children are immeasurable." Keep it up Will!
From professional soccer player to full-time father, David Beckham's stay-at-home dad routine consists of playing dress up with his daughter, and staying active with his three sons. In between the daddy daycare and the morning chauffeur gig, Beckham has also won several, "Top Dad" awards. He quotes, "In my career there are many things I've won, and many things I've achieved... but my greatest achievement is my family." Now that daddy deserves a gold medal!
It goes without saying that the best dads are not just the ones shining under the Hollywood spotlight.
He could be the one sitting right in the next room, or halfway across the world. He could be your hubby, he could even be you! Regardless of who your father is, where he is, or what he is doing, take a moment today to celebrate all the fathers and/or father figures in your life.
So, thanks Dad, for being you, and doing what you do.
Happy Father's Day. Don't forget to share your favorite Dad posts and pictures with Knockout Image!
