The day for dads is here, and celebrities are celebrating. Numerous stars are taking a timeout from their Father’s Day activities to pay tribute on Instagram to the special fathers in their lives. Some, like Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid, wrote sweet messages to their children’s dads, while others, like Dan Levy and Kate Hudson, shouted out their own fathers.
The social media love fest for dads has been truly sweet this year. Mandy Moore honored her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, on his first Valentine’s Day with a lengthy message, including telling him that he was “always destined to be a dad.” On the other end of parenting experience spectrum, veteran dad (and former President) Barack Obama got thanks from wife Michelle Obama, who celebrated all dads, but him in particular. “Our daughters couldn’t have asked for a better role model,” she wrote in part. “We’re so lucky to have you in our lives.”
Dads themselves also had people to honor. Jimmy Fallon posted a hilarious video of his daughters in some less cooperative moments, captioning it, “Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there.” Kevin Hart also shared a video, but his previewed an upcoming Red Table Talk in which he and Will Smith sit down and discuss fatherhood. “Happy Father’s Day fellas....Have a beautiful & blessed day,” he wrote in part.
