Father’s Day 2011 is fast approaching, so who are some of the best celebrity dads, and do your favorite celeb dads make the list?
Here are 5 of the best celeb dads:
Brad Pitt – Brad Pitt is one busy guy, but you always get the sense that he makes his kids a priority. Whether Brad Pitt is taking the twins to the playground or he and Angelina Jolie are bringing the kids along to the Kung Fu Panda 2 premiere, their large bunch no doubt gets all of Brangelina’s love. Find out more about why Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would like to work together again… for the kids!
Ben Affleck – Ben and wife Jennifer Garner are often spotted out and about with their kids, Seraphina and Violet, and it’s easy to see that Ben’s girls are the apple of his eye! Bonus points for Ben doing the straight up normal dad stuff with his little girls.
Johnny Depp – One of the things I love about Johnny Depp (and believe me, there are many, many things to love!) is how he really keeps his kids out of the limelight. Depp talks about his son John “Jack” and daughter Lily Rose in interviews, but you don’t see a lot of photos of them, as he tries to maintain some normalcy in their lives.
Hugh Jackman – Hugh is often seen doing playful things with the kids – at the beach, the playground, on a scooter… it just seems like Jackman is a real hands-on dad. And who doesn’t love that?
Barack Obama – President Obama has got the weight of the world on his shoulders, but he’s also shown that he’s a great dad to daughters Malia and Sasha, who despite living in the White House, still have chores and responsibilities. President Obama perhaps said it best in a 2008 Father’s Day speech: “[Dads] are teachers and coaches. They are mentors and role models. They are examples of success and the men who constantly push us toward it.”
