These celebrity fathers have kids that they absolutely adore and love! Here’s what they’ve said about their experience being fathers.

Being a parent is an indescribable experience. For people out there who don’t have kids yet, it’s something that is really difficult to understand! Having a child really changes one’s perspective and outlook on life. It helps people realize how important it is to focus on someone else other than themselves.

These celebrity fathers have kids that they absolutely adore and love! Having kids has changed the lives of these male celebrities in ways that they have done their best to try to describe. Here’s what some of them have said about becoming fathers.

10 Will Smith

Will Smith always knew fatherhood was for him. He explained, “From the time I was 6 years old I wanted to be a father. I loved how my family was but there were massive, critical deficiencies in my father’s parenting that I wanted to correct.” He is the father of Trey, Jaden, and Willow Smith by his ex Sheree Zampino and his current wife Jade Pinkett-Smith.

9 Orlando Bloom

According to his Good Morning America. Orland Bloom appreciates the gems that come with fatherhood. He said, “It’s a magical time when an angel pops into the planet, which is what it feels like for me… you know those quiet times at home just you and the family and a little one and nursing and just sort of being present and seeing where you can help and what you can do to nurture a little life into the world.” He has his son Flynn Bloom with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr and his daughter Daisy Dove Bloom with Katy Perry.

8 John Legend

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are couple goals and parenting goals too. He discussed parenting when he said, “I love being a dad, but it’s definitely frustrating when I am out with Miles and the men’s restroom doesn’t have a baby changing table. When dads can’t change diapers, it affects the whole family. Chrissy shouldn’t have to change every diaper when we are out.” The sexism in public restrooms is so real to this day, unfortunately. Hopefully, if celebs like John Legend keep speaking up, things will change. He has two kids so far: Luna and Miles Theodore Stephens. Chrissy was meant to give birth to a third but tragically, her newborn did not survive.

7 Chris Brown

Life changed for Chris Brown after he became a father. He said, “Learning how to be a dad, especially learning how to take care of somebody else, you know, I barely know how to brush my teeth in the morning! It’s actually great. It’s very humbling. You know, it’s very calming. I think I was a lot, you know, rambunctious, very hyper as a kid but now seeing that 10 times over, my daughter’s kinda like mellowing me out.” He has two children now: Royalty and Aeko Catori Brown.

6 John Krasinski

John Krasinski is a proud father with his lovely wife Emily Blunt. He discussed parenthood saying, “My children’s happiness, their safety, and their well-being, is the most paramount thing in my life. … You don’t know if other kids are gonna be nice to her or if she [will get] in trouble for something. You just want to protect them at all costs.” He has two daughters named Violet and Hazel Krasinski.

5 Ryan Reynolds

According to Us Weekly, Ryan Reynolds is very pleased with his familial situation as of now. He said, “I love being a girl dad. I have three daughters, which I never in a million years would have imagined. I come from all boys. I have three older brothers. I’m the youngest of four boys so for me to have three daughters has just been such a ride and I love every second of it.”

Being a girl dad is not something men were so openly proud of back in the day. The late Kobe Bryant basically coined the term and now most fathers of daughters express the same sentiments.

4 Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher described the birth of his child saying, “As soon as this child was born, I immediately wanted to call my parents and just apologize because I never knew how much they loved me.” (Bustle.) So far he has two children that he shares with his wife Mila Kunis: Dimitri Portwood and Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher. If he and Mila hadn’t met on the set of That ’70s Show in the 90s, who knows where they’d be today! They certainly wouldn’t have their two precious children.

3 Brad Pitt

According to E! Online, Brad Pitt talked about fatherhood saying, “I feel like the richest man alive since I’ve become a father. Being a father has changed me on so many levels and made me more generous and alive. I see my children as an essential part of my life… I love being a father and all the responsibilities that entail.”

Fatherhood has changed him for the better in so many ways! He shares his kids with Angelina Jolie, his ex-wife. His children are named Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox Jolie-Pitt.

2 Drake


After Drake finally shared adorable pictures of his son with the public, he discussed the experience of being a new dad. He said, “I posted those pictures. It was great for me. I just woke up one morning and I was like, you know what? This is just something that I want to do. I want to be able to go places with my son and share memories with my son. I don’t want to feel like just because of a life choice I made to be a ‘celebrity’ that I got to make everybody live under this blanket. So, I just wanted to free myself of that.” Now that people have seen just how adorable Drake’s son really is, fans are hoping Drake will continue to post more pictures moving forward.

1 Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth is an incredible actor but he’s an even better father. He spoke on fatherhood saying, “I think [parenthood] brings out the child in all of us. That’s what’s so beautiful. It reminds you of the fascination you had with things, and how you can spend hours just being with someone. It’s amazing.” He shares his children with his wife Elsa Pataky. Their kids are named India Rose, Sasha, and Tristan Hemsworth.
