Solo Celeb Dads: 25 Sweet Pics Of Papas That Totally Have Us Swooning

Let's face it: not everyone has a dad that stepped up to the plate. This is why society loves celebrating the dads that are there for their kids! More and more, fathers are realizing that it's important for them to put in as much effort when it comes to child-rearing as moms do.

And what's more swoon-worthy than seeing celeb dads do just that? While some celebrity men have personas that make people think they're party animals, a lot of times their private lives can be a stark contrast. It might even be surprising to fans to find out that some of these men are doting dads outside of their public lives.

While some of these men are taken, there's no harm in appreciating their good looks and paternal instincts. Check out this list to see Hollywood's finest hanging out with their adorable offspring. Many of these kids are going to be part of the next generation of Hollywood elite, and this list will give the scoop on who's who before they become big names themselves.

There are even predictions on who plans to follow in their parents' footsteps and which kids may go a completely different route. After all, Blue Ivy could grow up to become a human rights lawyer.

25 Chris Pratt And His Son Jack Are Outdoorsy People


Like many of the people on his list, Chris Pratt sadly split with his partner Anna Faris last year. Their son Jack is six now, People reports. Jack was born prematurely about two months early and had to spend the first month of his life in the NICU. It's clear that his rocky birth made his parents appreciate his health more.

While talking about her delivery Anna said; "Chris' face when Jack was being born is unforgettable."

The pair even talked about having more kids. Though they're no longer together, we certainly think it could still be possible. If this list is any evidence, people can manage to make a lot of unconventional family dynamics work!

24 Pete Wentz's Son Bronx Is All Grown Up

Daily Mail

It seems like ages ago that Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson were an item, but their son Bronx is evidence that it did happen.

He might look exactly like his mother, but he clearly has a great time with his father as well.

Bronx is now almost ten years old, and he has three younger half-siblings. While Pete and his longtime girlfriend Meagan Camper have a four-year-old son and a newborn daughter, People reports that Ashlee and her husband Evan Ross' daughter Jagger Snow is three years old. Apparently Pete and Evan get along great. We love seeing dads and stepdads getting along!

23 Channing Tatum Is Prioritizing His Daughter After The Split


You probably know that Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum recently announced their separation (at least we'll always have Step Up). While they're still navigating the rocky waters of post-separation co-parenting, Channing is still making his daughter a priority in his life.

Everly Tatum is now five years old and it's clear she already has a pretty great personality.

Just last year, Channing wrote an essay for Cosmopolitan commending his daughter's individuality and talking about his hopes for how she'll continue to maintain her authenticity as she grows. We're sure Everly will appreciate her dad's advice as she grows!

22 Orlando Bloom's Son Looks Just Like Him


Looking at this picture of Orlando Bloom and his son Flynn Christopher Bloom, we are convinced he figured out the secret to asexual reproduction. But when you remember that Flynn's mother is former Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr, you realize that Orlando can't possibly take all the credit for this adorable little boy.

Flynn is now seven years old, and just recently Orlando took to IG to share a photo of the two together on a "very important lunch date."

We imagine hearts melting as soon as these two walked into that restaurant because surely it can't just be us!

21 Wiz Khalifa's Son Sebastian Thomas Is Growing Up Very Fast


We're already hedging our bets that Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose's son Sebastian Taylor Thomas is going to be a star. With such a strong, outspoken mother like Amber and an easygoing father like Wiz, we're convinced he'll have all the confidence and charm to do anything he wants. Still, Amber says that Sebastian is already musical. We're not sure he'll follow in his father's footsteps and become a rapper, however. Sebastian happens to be a big fan of Taylor Swift, so his potential music career may take him in a totally different route. Billboard reports that Sebastian met Taylor earlier this year and greeted her with a bouquet of sunflowers. That story is so adorable we just can't!

20 Ashton Kutcher's Daughter Looks Just Like Her Mom

Celebs Gallery

Considering how secretive they initially were about their relationship and marriage, it's not surprising that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis mostly keep their kids out of the limelight. Nevertheless, it seems the pair have gotten a little bit more relaxed about sharing parts of their private life as time has gone on. Ashton even stepped out with their two kids in New York! The couple's daughter Wyatt Isabelle is now four years old and their son Dmitri Portwood is almost two. Ashton sweetly shared on an interview with Ellen that the siblings get along great, "Wyatt thinks the baby is her baby." How sweet!

19 Josh Duhamel And His Son Have Picture Perfect Smiles


How cute is this little one? We could easily see Josh's little boy in a Gap commercial. Actor Josh Duhamel and musician Fergie have been apart for a while now, but they still come together for their son Axl Jack. People reported that the pair threw a fifth birthday party for Axl earlier this year, and they've made it a priority to give him the stability he needs. Though they have been linked to other romantic partners, Axl is the only child so far for both Fergie and Josh, so we like to think they have some time to ease themselves into the whole co-parenting thing before their family gets bigger.

18 Jason Momoa And Lisa Bonet's Kids Share Their Parents' Free Spirits

Daily Mail

Some of the kids on this list are destined to be cool no matter what they do. Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet's kids are no exception of course. Just look at their big sister Zoe Kravitz! For the most part, Lola Iolani and Nakoa-Wolf Manakaupo Namakaeha Momoa (we imagine they have nicknames) stay out of the spotlight, but who knows what they'll do in a few years. While Jason and Lisa only recently got married, they've been together for more than twelve years at this point. We can only imagine how much fun these two must have growing up with such iconic parents.

17 Seal And Heidi Klum Have The Coparenting Thing Down


Seal and Heidi Klum have been divorced for a while, so it's no surprise that they've figured out how to truly master co-parenting. Nevertheless, it is not something to be taken for granted. In addition to their sons twelve-year-old Henry and eleven-year-old Johan and daughter Lou, Seal is also the adopted father of Heidi's daughter Leni. Heightline reports that Heidi had her daughter Lou with Flavio Briatore. Despite their divorce, Seal has continued to be a father figure to Lou, which we think is pretty swoon-worthy. Whatever course their relationship may take, it's clear that Seal and Heidi are always going to be family.

16 Jason Sudeikis' Little Boy Is Already A Sports Fan


Actors Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have two kids; four-year-old Otis Alexander and two-year-old Daisy Josephine.

Even though Otis showed a great deal of enthusiasm at this sports game with his dad, Olivia insists that she isn't pushing her son to like certain "boy" things.

She told People, "he still doesn't judge things like pink, or dance, or gymnastics. I don't know why at a certain point we tell them that's for boys and that's for girls, but I'm going to do my best to not force that delineation." At least if Otis grows up to be a sports fan, he'll know it was his own choice!

15 Ryan Reynolds' Daughter Is Already Asserting Her Independence


Despite having parents that are both A-list stars, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's kids aren't seen that often. That's what makes this father-daughter outing so special! More recently, the whole family was photographed together when Ryan received his star on the Walk Of Fame. The two have two daughters, three-year-old James is the oldest seen above, and then there's two-year-old Inez. Like Olivia, Blake also expressed to People a fear that her kids will feel like they are limited by their gender as they get older. We're pretty confident James will know how to fight her own battles, as she's already the one leading her father!

14 P Diddy Has A Big Bundle


Unfortunately, P. Diddy and his family have been in the news for a rather sad reason recently. Kim Porter, with whom he shared three kids, recently passed away at age forty-seven. People reports that the couple split in 2007, but that they remained best friends.

During the course of their relationship, they had their son Christian, who is now twenty, as well as eleven-year-old twins D'Lila Star and Jessie James.

Diddy also raised Kim's son from another relationship, Quincy. Additionally, Diddy also has a daughter named Chance with Sarah Chapman and a son named Justin with his ex-girlfriend Misa Hylton-Brim. Clearly, Diddy has a knack for fatherhood, and we love that he's managed to bond his diverse brood.

13 Ludacris Is A Family Man


Somehow, Ludacris manages to balance club appearances and big city performances with being a dad. We know he was his wife Eudoxie to thank for helping him find that balance, but a lot of people still don't think of him as a family man. Despite that, his Instagram is filled with pictures of his children and beautiful wife. According to Married Biography, Ludacris has three kids; Karma, Cai Bella, and Cadence Gaelle. While Ludacris had Cadence with his wife Eudoxie in 2015, his other two daughters are from separate relationships. He hasn't always had the best relationship with his daughters' moms, but they seem to be figuring out just the same.

12 Dwayne Johnson And His Daughter Make An Adorable Pair

Popsugar UK

Believe it or not, Dwayne Johnson actually has three kids! The forty-five-year-old former wrestler has three daughters; Simone, Jasmine, and Tiana. Dwayne's eldest daughter is actually sixteen years old, and he had her with his ex-wife Dany Garcia. Simone is actually signed to IMG models, according to Popsugar, so she's already started venturing her way into the entertainment industry.  Dwayne didn't have his second daughter, Jasmine, until 2015. She and Tiana are Dwayne's children with his girlfriend Lauren Hashian. Interestingly, Dwayne's ex-wife is still his manager. Talk about complicated family dynamics!

11 Kevin Hart's Oldest Kids Are Almost Old Enough To Babysit


Kevin likes to share a lot of stories about his kids in his comedy acts, but it's easy to forget that they're well on their way to becoming teenagers. As Heightline reports, Kevin's daughter Heaven is eleven years old while his son Hendrix is eight.

While these two are from Kevin's previous marriage to Torrei Hart, Kevin's first kid with his wife Eniko Parrish just turned one!

While his brood is clearly growing, we think Kevin spaced his kids out well enough that the older ones can help take care of the younger ones. Considering Kevin's comedic genius, we're willing to bet Heaven and Hendrix will dabble in the entertainment field as well.

10 Blue Ivy Is The Perfect Mix Of Her Famous Parents

Jewanda Magazine

She's already made headlines for wearing clothes we couldn't dream of affording and showing her famous parents a great deal of sass at awards shows.

It's like Blue Ivy was born knowing she was the daughter of legends.

While she looks like the spitting image of her father Jay Z in a lot of pictures, we can totally see how much she looks like Beyonce in this one. The jury's still out on who she'll take after more, but Blue's already been blessed with a larger than life personality. Whoever she becomes, it will be someone we wouldn't mess with.

9 Macklemore And His Daughter Make A Stylish Pair


Macklemore has not been shy about sharing his experiences with fatherhood. Us Weekly reports that he did a song with Ed Sheeran and Ryan Lewis called "Growing Up" to talk about his experience raising his kids. In March of this year, he and his wife Tricia welcomed their second child. They now have two daughters; two-year-old Sloane and eight-month-old Colette. Macklemore's family mostly stays out of the limelight, but we love seeing him with his daughters every once in a while. And it looks like Sloane is already picking up on her father's impressive sense of style.

8 Chance The Rapper Takes A Lot Of Adorable Photos With His Daughter


If you've been living under a rock, you may not have caught up on the news that Chance the Rapper is the most adorable celebrity dad on the internet, but we basically see it as fact at this point.

Chance's three-year-old daughter Kensli is often featured on his social media where he shares cute videos of the toddler.

Kensli is Chance's daughter with his now fiance Kirsten Corley, so sadly we'll have to abandon any dreams of being this adorable girl's stepmom. While Chance and Kirsten's relationship had a rocky start, they seem to have figured out how to be together and care for their little girl in the best way possible, so we can't not be happy for them.

7 Neil Patrick Harris Has His Hands Full With Twins

Us Weekly

It's kind of crazy how much Neil Patrick Harris' kids, Harper Grace and Gideon Scott look like him (and what legendary names, btw).

The eight-year-old twins, who Patrick had with husband David Burtka, were something of a modern science miracle.

According to the Daily Mail, Neil explained it to Oprah during an exclusive interview in this way; "two eggs, two embryos, one of mine, one of his." Honestly, we have a few follow-up questions, but suffice it to say that Neil is a dad! Also, his explanation helps to explain some of the uncanny resemblances between Neil and the kids.

6 Marc Anthony Loves Going To Disneyland With His Kids

Lainey Gossip

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez are just another example of a couple that has managed to figure out how to care for a blended family after divorce. During their time together, the two had twins Max and Emme, who are now ten years old. Between both their parents' busy schedules, we are amazed that this family manages to make it work. Still, Marc clearly manages to spend quality time with them, as he's pictured were with Max at Disneyland. Marc has four older kids, too, so he has his hands full, like a lot of the other dads on his list.

5 Jamie Foxx Looks Like He's The Same Age As His Eldest Daughter


Between his wrinkle-free skin and his endless energy, it's easy to understand why we think Jamie Foxx is younger than he actually is. The truth is, the actor, songwriter, and comedian is fifty years old. As in five-zero. 

We can't believe it either, but it does explain how he can have a daughter that's so grown up.

Jamie has been mostly private about the identity of his daughters' moms, but the Daily Mail reported that the mother of his youngest daughter, Annalise, has revealed to be Kristin Grannis last year. Meanwhile, his twenty-two-year-old daughter Corrine Bishop's mother was revealed to be Connie Kline.

4 Matthew McConaughey Is A Dad On Alert In NYC


Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves happen to be one of those Hollywood couples we'd argue is underappreciated. The duo has been together since 2006, but they are often forgotten about when people list Hollywood's longest-lasting couples. Perhaps it's part of the reason for their success! Matthew and Camila have three kids; Levi, Vida, and Livingston, People reports. Levi is ten years old, while Vida is eight and Livingston is five. We don't get to see Matthew and Camila's kids too often, but that definitely may change as they get older. We'll have to see which ones will follow in their parents' footsteps!

3 Jimmy Kimmel Is A Multitasking Dad

CBS News

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel has been very honest in sharing his son's health struggles on his show. Earlier this year, he told the story about his son William, who was born with a heart issue. He shared a tear-jerking speech about how a nurse discovered his son's heart murmur. CNN reports that Jimmy and his wife eventually learned that their son had a heart condition which will require multiple future surgeries.

It was incredibly moving to hear Jimmy talking so candidly about the experience.

And luckily he's awarded his audience by bringing his son to work, so they could all see he's doing well. It was a relief to us all to see him healthy!

2 Lebron James Also Brings His Daughter To Work Sometimes


Being a working parents means having to bring your kid to work sometimes, and celebrities are no exception. Of course, Lebron James certainly has more leeway at work than most people do. The Washington Post reports that Lebron and his wife Savannah have a fourteen-year-old son, Lebron Jr., and an eleven-year-old son, Bryce. But the star of the show is clearly his little girl, three-year-old Zhuri. Lebron has remarked that his sons are very mature, so we imagine they're reliable babysitters for little Zhuri. But when they're not available, we're sure his teammates are happy to see her show up to work with him.

1 T.I. Has Two Adorable Mini Me's

Life & Style

Thanks to T.I.'s reality show, T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle, most people are familiar with the Atlanta rapper's kids.

T.I. and Tiny present a good example of how to make a blended family work.

While these two had their kids King, Major, and Heiress together, VH1 reports that his daughter Deyjah's mom is musician Ms. Nico and his sons Domani and Messiah's mom is Lashon Thompson. Meanwhile, Tiny also has a daughter from a previous relationship. Somehow, T.I. manages to keep up with all his kids and stepkids' lives, including his youngest mini me's. We don't know how he and Tiny do it, but props to them!
