Iconic celebrity dads who enjoy making time for their children
Like father, like child
Very often, when we see celebrities in the media, we forget that they have their own private lives. As successful as they might be—as athletes, musicians, actors, chefs, or politicians—family always comes first. In fact, the hardest job they have isn’t the one we know them for: It’s the one that happens behind the scenes. If you haven't guessed it yet, we're talking about fatherhood.
One can only imagine the pressures of being a father, especially when your every move is being followed by the public's inquisitive eyes. A father’s job is to keep their children safe, but that job is getting harder in the age of social media. Online trolls and keyboard warriors are always out to get celebrities and their children when a mistake is made.
A few celebrity dads seem to handle the pressure especially well, despite being in the spotlight 24/7. These are the ones who have a nurturing and supportive relationship with their children, to the extent of being their professional mentors and/or creating content together. Below, we've highlighted a few father-and-child pairs who work well together—plus one famous trio—in celebration of Father's Day.
Travis Scott and Stormi
It’s clear that the Houston rapper really loves his daughter, including her in many of his Instagram posts. The duo also has a great sense of fashion with Stormi picking up a few things from her dad early on.
Barack, Malia, and Sasha Obama
The 44th President of the United States has a very close relationship with his daughters. Even when he was leading a country, he managed to set aside time for the ones who matter most.
Will and Jaden Smith
Like his father, Jaden Smith has appeared in multiple films and has an impressive discography. They have appeared in multiple movies—After Earth, The Pursuit of Happyness, and Men in Black 2—together. Will Smith also actively supports his son’s business venture, Just Water.
LeBron and Bronny James
When your dad is one of the best basketball players in the history of the sport, following in his footsteps is a lot of pressure. LeBron is always there to support his son on the sidelines at high school games.
Drake and Adonis
Although the news of Drake hiding the birth of his son was shocking news for the world, he has a beautiful relationship with Adonis. Drake even brought his son to the Billboard Music Awards and dedicated his Artist of the Decade Award to him.
Gordon and Matilda Ramsay
If you’re active on TikTok, you might’ve seen them pranking each other or doing dance challenges together. Gordon Ramsay is known for his hot temper, but he definitely has a soft spot for his daughter.
DJ Khaled and Asahd
DJ Khaled is known for his over-the-top lifestyle on social media. As much as he loves the material things in his life, he also loves being a father. His son, Asahd, has also appeared on multiple album covers—Grateful, Father of Asahd, and Kahled Kahled—and has even been credited as an executive producer.
David and Brooklyn Beckham
Brooklyn Beckham isn’t much of a footballer like his dad was, but he definitely has his dad's good looks and confidence for modelling. He’s even modelled for his dad’s eyewear brand.
