Awwww! Another family holiday means another chance for us to see old photos of celebrities with their families, and/or new pics of them being regular family folks. Whether they were career inspirations, carpool leaders, the biggest fans in the audience, or just have really good looking DNA, the dads we're seeing honored for Father's Day
on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter today had some part in shaping our pop culture. This also begs the question: Before social media, did we even know that famous people had parents?
Some posts, like those from Game of Thrones
vet Richard Madden and Kensington Palace, are promoting this as #fatherandsonday, to support awareness and research for cancer. Some are there to show us just how awesome famous dads' hair used to be (thanks, Gwyneth Paltrow!). Kendall and Kylie used the opportunity to show support for their dad, Caitlyn Jenner. Justin Timberlake took this moment to celebrate being a new member of the dads' club, and somehow made it look sexy. Others, like Blake Lively, are mostly an excuse to post sweet and/or slightly embarrassing pics of their baby daddies.
Happy Father's Day, dads of actors, politicians, musicians, and athletes! And actors, politicians, musicians, and athletes who are dads! Oh, and also to our own!
