Father’s Day 2015: 15 Celebrity Dads Celebrating for the First Time
Welcome to the dad club, new dads.
With Father’s Day fast approaching, we’re taking a look at some of the famous dads who will be celebrating for the very first time on Sunday (June 21). Last year’s first-time dads may have included Prince William, Jimmy Fallon, and Kanye West, but this year’s celebrity dads and their new arrivals also bring the “aww” factor.
Both Ryan Reynolds and Ashton Kutcher seem to be hands-on dads. Kutcher voiced his frustration on Facebook about the lack of diaper changing stations in men’s restrooms when he was on-the-go with daughter Wyatt. He went on to team up with Change.org to create a petition asking Target and Costco to “provide universally accessible changing tables in their stores.”
Even though Reynolds shares his films with daughter James, he says, “I worry that my daughter’s going to want to go into show business.”
What does he want James to do then? Reynolds went on to say, “I like to whisper in her ear really like, normal, everyday jobs. Like ‘You’re going to be a flight attendant, a barista. Just normal, wonderful jobs. You can have a nice, normal life… A Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.’”
“I hope he doesn’t mind me saying this; I just saw Chris Brown with his little daughter backstage. It was absolutely mind-blowing,” Foxx said on Jimmy Kimmel. “It was something that I just went – tears for everybody.”
Like Reynolds, who shared a peek of his daughter on Instagram (in the form of a tiny hand), other proud moms and dads have been sharing glimpses of their babies on social media.
Two celebrity dads will be celebrating Father’s Day with their newborn babies and wives: James Righton and Keira Knightley welcomed a baby in late May, and Chad Michael Murray’s wife Sarah Roemer gave birth to a baby boy on June 1.
