Anybody can be a father, but it takes someone very special to be a dad.
Although there are still disputes about the exact origins of what we now know as Father's Day, but the idea for Father's Day originated in the USA according to an article on Telegraph. Since then, Father's Day has been officially celebrated in the US on the third Sunday in June since 1966.
The intimate relationship between celebrity fathers and their kids is equally special with how regular fathers share a bond with their children. The following are some remarkable quotes from top celebrity dads as cited on Christian Post. This will give you an idea on how they truly cherish their kids the way other fathers do.
For Hugh Jackman, being a father to a beautiful daughter means so much more. "When I come home, my daughter will run to the door and give me a big hug, and everything that's happened that day just melts away," he said.
Jay Z, through his song "Glory", expressed his feelings of being a father: "The most amazing feeling I feel / Words can't describe the feeling, for real / Baby, I'll paint the sky blue / My greatest creation was you."
Johnny Depp said that he did not actually have a real handle on what life really was supposed to mean. "And I'm not sure that life is supposed to mean anything or be anything at all. But as long as you have the opportunity to breathe, breathe," Depp said in a statement. "As long as you have the opportunity to make your kid smile and laugh, and move it forward," he added.
Brad Pitt talked about the emotional bond and the responsibility that can sweep over any father when he has a family to look after. "I care about them more than I care about myself, which I think is the real definition of love. You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family," he said.
And of course, the US President off our radar since he is definitely a doting dad. "What I've realized is that life doesn't count for much unless you're willing to do your small part to leave our children - all of our children - a better world," Obama said. "Any fool can have a child. That doesn't make you a father. It's the courage to raise a child that makes you a father," he concluded.
