Star Dads Celebrate Father’s Day, Share Cherished Family Moments


In honor of Father’s Day this Sunday, we’re taking a look at some of Hollywood’s leading men from father-of-two Freddie Prinze, Jr., to new dads Nick Lachey and Bill Rancic, to dad-of-one Richie Sambora, and father-of-five Chris O’Donnell.

We’re highlighting 18 proud papas who share their upcoming Father’s Day plans, the joys of fatherhood, and their cherished family memories.

  • Richie Sambora:

Rockstar papa Richie Sambora, 53, and his ex-wife, actress Heather Locklear, are parents to 15-year-old daughter Ava.

The Bon Jovi rocker opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the joys of fatherhood and his plans on Father’s Day.

“I’m very lucky because to me, every day that I spend with my daughter is Father’s Day,” the proud papa gushed. “She is my diamond. No matter what happens there is a joyful energy around us. My favorite thing in the world is her.”

He went on to talk about his late father, whom he continues to cherish.

“I celebrate by thinking about my dad and all the gifts he’s given to me,” he shared. “He was non-judgmental, good natured and had good humor and morality. I also celebrate by going out on a daddy-daughter date.”

What has fatherhood taught the award-winning guitarist?

“A lot of things to mention here but, I guess truly, how to love unconditionally,” Richie said. “I’ve learned to take responsibility, be flexible, and have respect for my parents for what they’ve given me.”

  • Tamera Mowry-Housley & husband Adam Housley:

Tia & Tamera star Tamera Mowry-Hardrict and husband Adam Housley are parents to 7-month-old son Aden.

  • Tia Mowry-Hardrict & husband Cory Hardrict:

Tamera’s twin sister, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, and her husband Cory Hardrict are parents to nearly 2-year-old son Cree.

What makes her hubby such a great dad? “Aww, that’s such a great question!” Tia gushed to Celebrity Baby Scoop. “No one has ever asked me that.”

“What makes my husband a good dad is that he’s very aware,” she added. “Let’s say I’m exhausted from working all day. He’ll see that and say, ‘You know what, Tia? I’ll go ahead and take care of Cree and give him a bottle when he wakes up in the middle of the night. Why don’t you go to the other room and get a few extra hours of sleep?’ He’ll also say, ‘Alright Tia, go take a nap. I’m going to take Cree to the park.’”

She added: “I think ‘considerate’ is the best word to describe my hubby. That’s what makes him a good dad. He’s aware and he also takes the time to play with Cree. He’s very proactive, which I think is awesome.”

  • Freddie Prinze, Jr.:

Star couple Sarah Michelle Gellar, 36, and Freddie Prinze, Jr., 37, are parents to daughter Charlotte, 3, and 9-month-old son Rocky.

He added: “We feel so blessed to be dads, that everyday truly feels special to us.”

  • Helen Slater:

In honor of Father’s Day, The Good Mother actress Helen Slater opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her devoted husband, Robert Watzke.

  • Melissa Rycroft & Tye Strickland:

Reality star Melissa Rycroft and husband Tye Strickland are parents to 2-year-old daughter Ava.

The Bachelor alum, 30, opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her “hands on” hubby.

I know that I’m very, very lucky. Just seeing him with her and seeing how she responds to him, it definitely makes you fall in love a little bit more.”

  • Amy Grant & Vince Gill:

“I’ll tell you what makes him a good stepfather,” Amy continued. “He has three stepchildren and he gave them all their space and didn’t pretend like he was their choice. He was their mommy’s choice, and slowly over the years they grew to love him.”

“It has changed me for sure. It literally affects everything you do, every decision you make,” Nick recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop. “Your priorities completely shift and your kids instantly become the most important thing in the world. I think it’s made me a more patient person as well.

“My greatest joy is waking him up every day,” he added. “Seeing that little boy look up and smile at me every morning is the perfect way to start my day. The biggest challenge is having enough time in the day to do everything I need to do.”

Celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern is proud dad to 8-year-old son Noah.

The television personality, 51, opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about how fatherhood has changed him.

Having a child is a supreme motivator in that regard.”
