Father’s Day is just around the corner, and this one might be peculiar due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Buzz60’s Mercer Morrison has the story.
Happy Father’s Day.
You could tell your dad in person how much you appreciate him. But what fun is that when you can tell the world on Instagram and Twitter?
Many stars took to social media to do just that Sunday, posting to their dads, their kids, dads of the heart or just other dads they admire.
Take a look:
Adonis, whose mother is French model Sophie Brussaux, made his Instagram debut earlier this year.
The 33-year-old also took to his Instagram Stories to shout out fellow celebrity fathers including Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Charles Oakley and LeBron James.
Katherine Schwarzenegger, pregnant with her first child, had a loving, two-fold message for husband Chris Pratt, whose 41st birthday was Sunday.
Alongside a panel of photos of the pair, she said, “I thank God every day for you. blessed to live life with you, watch you grow, and one of the greatest gifts has been watching you be the most loving and fun father.”
Schwarzenegger posted a separate tribute to her famous dad, including a photo of the two of them when she was a toddler.
Actor Kevin Hart couldn’t decide who he wanted to honor. So he posted a pic of his family with the caption, “On this Father’s Day I want to celebrate the fathers closest to me….Thank you all for being a great example & definition of what Fathers are supposed to be. Love y’all.”
And then he flooded his Instagram with nearly two dozen Dad’s Day tributes to fathers including Jay-Z, Barack Obama, Magic Johnson, Adam Sandler, Dave Chappelle, Jamie Foxx, Steve Harvey, Dwyane Wade and Stephen Curry.
“His wildness runs through me,” the actress wrote. “His gifts are here. His demons to overcome are mine to break! I love him not for who I wanted him to be, but for who he was.”
Barrymore added that both her mom and dad have shaped who she is as a parent.
“I don’t have a picture of a dad today to show how great everything was,” she added. “I have a picture to show what it was. And that is my story. And that is perfect in itself.”
The video shows Cabello singing to “the first man who ever loved me” as she watches clips of herself as an infant. She ended her heartfelt caption, “te amo mucho papa, thank you for being my hero, happy Father’s Day.”
The holiday falling in the midst of nationwide protests over racial discrimination made Justin Timberlake philosophical.
“Boys grow up to be fathers. I think about that a lot these days,” the singer said alongside photos of him with his son, Silas. “We try to teach our son to love and to respect everyone — we teach him that all people are all created equal, and that no one should be treated differently because of the color of their skin. We teach him this because one day, he will go on to teach his kids the same. It’s a cycle.”
Chrissy Teigen posted a hilarious photo of husband John Legend holding their daughter, Luna, and wearing a taco hat and a wide grin.
“You were made to do many things in life but you were absolutely made to be a dad,” she said in the caption.
Carrie Underwood paid tribute to the two dads in her life: her father, Steve, and husband Mike Fisher.
“How blessed am I to have 2 amazing fathers in my life?!?!,” she captioned her post alongside photos of her guys. “To my dad: you think I’m strong. You think I’m fearless…even when I’m at my weakest. … And to the father of my sweet boys: thanks for loving on all of us so well. Isaiah and Jake want to be just like you and I can think of no better example of what a father’s love should look like.”
Country singer Blake Shelton got a shout-out from his once-and-future fellow coach on “The Voice,” Gwen Stefani.
“thank u for helping me raise these boys!!” the “Hollaback Girl” singer wrote alongside a series of family pics.
“That first proud dad moment… taking your baby home from the hospital!” she wrote with a photo of Cordero holding son Elvis in a baby carrier. “I love this photo of Nick. He is so happy and so excited to be going home with his son!”
Kloots also paid tribute to her dad and brother, who have been filling a void for Elvis, who just turned 1, since Cordero was admitted to the hospital in late March.
Brandi Carlile paid tribute to her dad and father-in-law, as well as “to my best friend David who gave Catherine and I the greatest gift in life, our two daughters.”
She posted a clip of her performing her song “Most of All” with the added sentiments: “I’ve been thinking about people who can’t be with their fathers today. For different reasons, this day can be difficult for so many of us. So this one’s for you…”
