Jude Law

Celebrity dads

Jude shared a sweet moment with his 16-year-old daughter Iris while watching the New York Rangers VS the New Jersey Devils at Madison Square Gardens. And considering Jude Law has five kids (Rafferty, 20, Iris, 16, Rudy, 14, Sophia, 7 and Ada, 18 months), it’s no surprise that he knows a thing or two about fatherhood. He’s been quoted in the past saying: ‘Success, and even life itself, wouldn’t be worth anything if I didn’t have my children by my side. They mean everything to me.’ (Aw!)

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are parents to two daughters: Esmerelda, 2, and Amada, 7 months. Speaking to GQ for their January issue, he said: ‘Eva’s the dream mother, and they’re dream babies, and it’s like a dream that I’m having right now. I’m dreaming it all. So I feel so lucky… When you meet your kids you realise that they deserve great parents. And then you have your marching orders and you have to try and become the person that they deserve… My life [has] changed. And thank God it did.’


Ryan Gosling celebrity fatherhood quotes

Adam Levine recently became a father for the first time to his and Behati Prinsloo’s daughter, Dusty Rose, and it seems that he’s loving every minute of it. ‘I’ve been a parent for three weeks: What do I know? I don’t know anything, but it’s kind of part of the beauty of it, honestly’ he told Ryan Seacrest. ‘There are a lot of instincts, a lot of things that kind of kick in and switch on. It’s a beautiful experience.’

Justin Timberlake

Justin and his wife, Jessica Biel, became parents to their son, Silas, last year. Speaking about fatherhood on Today, he said: ‘It changes everything. You literally just wake up… Look in the mirror and go, “I have no idea what I’m doing.”‘ He also said: ‘All of this imperfection is the best part. That’s going to be the part that you remember the most.’

Adam Brody

Seth Cohen is all grown up and a dad now. Feeling old? Speaking to People, Adam opened up about life with his daughter, Arlo, and how he likes to spend quality time with her. ‘I do a nice morning hike with my daughter, that’s always a treat. It’s something to do in the wee hours of the morning when she’s up. It’s a good activity for both of us. We hike around our house… Watching the sun rise with a kid is pretty fun.’


Adam Brody

Ashton Kutcher

Ex Punk’d host Ashton has smartened up his funny-man act since becoming a parent to baby daughter Wyatt in 2015, with his actress-wife, Mila Kunis. Ashton recently revealed that the couple have yet to introduce artificial sugar into their daughter’s diet who’s now 18 months old, but what’s really pulled on our heart-strings is the actor’s comments about being a Daddy. ‘It’s legitimately the greatest thing ever…It just makes me wanna be better’ he revealed.


John Legend

We’re certain John’s going to be one of the coolest celebrity dads in Hollywood – not least because he’s passing on the best surname in history – and also ‘cos he’s spoken out how he plans to co-parent the daughter he conceived via IVF with Chrissy Teigen. Speaking to E! this week he revealed that he’s going to ‘slow down’ and take some paternity leave so he’s on hand for Chrissy 24/7: ‘I feel like, my mentality is just to be open and ready to help with whatever I can, and to be as loving to my wife and to our daughter as much as possible.’ he said. ‘I think paternity leave is good. I think it’s good for me to be home with Chrissy and helping her with whatever she needs, and I want to get to know our little baby!’ Too cute for words…


Brad Pitt

Brad’s gorgeous, six-strong brood with Angelina Jolie has made him a better person and he’s full of gushing quotes on his parental role. ‘Fatherhood is the best thing I ever did. It changes your perspective. You can write a book, you can make a movie, you can paint a painting, but having kids is really the most extraordinary thing I have taken on…[fatherhood] is everything…. the hardest job in the world, the most rewarding job in the world…. We put in long days. And to go home and have dinner with your kids, and have to discipline one of them who’s out of line, and still have the energy for that is…. I can’t explain the fulfillment of that, but it is everything.’


Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have just welcomed baby number two, as well as being parents to daughter, James, and it’s good to know that fatherhood hasn’t altered his witty sense of humour. Speaking on the David Letterman show he told audiences how his protective instincts had, er, shifted somewhat: ‘I used to say, ‘I would take a bullet for you.’ The second I looked into that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby.’ We think that means he just really loves them both?For some really soppy Fatherhood quotes from Ryan, see our exclusive interview with the actor.

Channing Tatum

No-one knows the perils of being a father to a little girl better than Channing Tatum. Comparing fatherhood to a film role, when his daughter Everly was born last year he said: ‘I’ve never protected the president [in real life], but I have been a new dad, and I can tell you that being a new dad is pretty terrifying. I’m pretty sure that something about the president makes the stakes a little higher, but to me as a new father, nothing is more important or scary than protecting a daughter.’ We are melting here…


Channing Tatum

Chris Hemsworth

Chris and wife Elsa Pataky have three beautiful kids together and Chris of course, couldn’t be happier. ‘I just have so much fun doing it [being a Father]’ he said. And the actor also revealed his parental role makes him reconsider work commitments. ‘Now I’m a bit more choosy, I think, with when I work and how I work because it better be worthwhile to take me away from them.’


Chris Hemsworth

Matthew McConaughey

Matthew’s three-strong brood with wife Camilla Alves changed his entire life outlook. Speaking in 2014 he revealed: ‘[Fatherhood] is the one thing I’ve always wanted to be… Never is a man more of a man than when he is the father of a newborn. You know what’s important. I definitely got more selfish. And at the same time, I think I got more compassionate.’


Kanye West

As celebrity Dads go, Kanye’s pretty cool. He’s rapped and sung about son Saint and daughter North, and regularly speaks out about how much he loves his family with Kim Kardashian: ‘When I look in North’s eyes, I’m happy about every mistake I’ve ever made’ he said. Awww, Kanye you’re killing us.


Kanye and North West

Chris Martin

Hey it looks like Chris Martin is a great father and a staunch feminist (double-win) judging from his quotes on family. ‘Men should always change diapers’ he quipped. ‘It’s a very rewarding experience. It’s mentally cleansing. It’s like washing dishes, but imagine if the dishes were your kids, so you really love the dishes.’ We love this analogy.


Chris Martin

Matt Damon

OK, tissues at the ready for this beautiful quote from Matt Damon, who shares parental responsibility of four kids with wife Luciana Barroso. ‘The only way I can describe [Fatherhood]… it sounds stupid, but at the end of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, you know how his heart grows like five times? Everything is full; It’s just full all the time’ he once told a magazine. (Excuse us whilst our hearts burst).



You’ll never be able to think of Jay as a tough rapper again after stalking Bey’s Insta and checking out all their cute family snaps. Jay said: ‘I thought I would be more inspired to have all these new feelings to talk about, but I really just want to hang out with my daughter.’



Michael Bublé

‘[Fatherhood is] the greatest thing that could ever happen. You can’t explain it until it happens, it’s like telling somebody what water feels like before they’ve ever swam in it.’ Could Michael be any more poetic in his explanation of Dad-joy? We feel like he should make this a song…

Despite his sporting success over the years, David Beckham‘s greatest achievement is without a doubt being a proud father to his four children, whom he shares with wife Victoria Beckham. And in honour of Father’s Day, here at HELLO! Online, we have decided to take a look back at the retired footballer’s cutest moments with his kids, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper Beckham!

The celebrity dad previously gushed about his children, explaining how fatherhood has become his number one priority since he retired from football back in 2013. In an interview with InStyle last year, he shared: “My children mean the world to me. Being a parent is always the best thing, but it can also be challenging as well because you want to set the right example. I feel that I do, but sometimes you make mistakes as parents. He added: “The children are very proud of me. They’re back in London, but they’re very proud and they know that daddy’s receiving an award tonight. They know that I go on these trips and I come back and I explain the trips to them. It’s always something to be part of this organisation, I’m very proud.”

It’s clear the Beckhams love spending quality time with one another as the 42-year-old often takes to his Instagram page to share gorgeous pictures of his brood. He also spoke to HELLO! about the importance of family time, explaining: “My family is the biggest accomplishment I have. I’m so proud of Victoria and my children; they’re my greatest achievement.”


David and Harper share sweet kiss on family safari holiday

There’s no denying that the sporting ace has a close bond with the youngest of the Beckham clan, his daughter Harper. During their family African safari last month, David shared a snap of himself and Harper sharing a sweet kiss, captioning it simply: “Kiss for Daddy <3”


David teases Brooklyn with embarrassing baby photo

Although many would think he’s the coolest dad, Brooklyn was left cringing after his dad shared an embarrassing baby photo on Instagram in honour of his 18th birthday! In the adorable snap, which shows a young Brooklyn with a beard of bubble bath, the proud father wrote: “This little man turns 18 tomorrow so as you can imagine I have many photos to post so here we go … Happy 18th eve to my handsome young man and best friend … @brooklynbeckham @victoriabeckham #18mañana.”


David chaperoned Brooklyn’s date

In 2015, David revealed how he accompanied his eldest son Brooklyn – then 14 – on his first ever date. During an appearance on The Late Late Show, the sports star told James Corden: “On his first date – Victoria was in London – it was Valentine’s day, and he said he’d love to take this girl for dinner. I said ‘OK great’ and I called Victoria and she replied ‘Really?’ So Victoria said, ‘OK make sure you take him, and make sure you sit in the restaurant’. And I was like, ‘Really, you’re going to make me do that?” and she said, ‘Yes, that’s the only way I’m letting him go’.” He added: “So we took him to a sushi restaurant, and he sat at the bar and I sat five tables back. My daughter is 4 years old but when she turns 14, I’ll be closer than that!”


David and his boys at sporting events

The father-of-four enjoys several father-and-son bonding moments. He often takes them to see football or basketball matches and even Wimbledon. Last month, David shared a snap from the Dodger Stadium with all three sons and in the caption, he wrote: “Opening day at the Dodgers baby ⚾️ 🇺🇸.”


David goofs around on Snapchat during kids’ ‘boring’ trip to the dentist

The doting father began to play around on Snapchat after he grew bored during a trip to the dentist with his children. Although he didn’t mention which child he was chaperoning, he decided to post a video of himself pulling facial expressions with a rabbit mask over his face while waiting. He said: “Kids teeth check-up and daddy got bored.”


David Beckham enjoys cuddles with son Cruz

Proud dad David recently couldn’t help but share a touching photo of him and his youngest son Cruz enjoying a cuddle. The former footballer and his ten-year-old son are shown overlooking a lake with pet dog Olive at their side in the sweet snap. “Cuddle with my little man… #cuddlewithcruzie,” he captioned the striking photo.


David cheering Romeo at the London Mini Marathon

In 2015, David and the Beckham family stepped out in full force to cheer on young Romeo, who took part in the London Marathon children’s race. The then 12-year-old successfully completed the three-mile run, raising £6,000 for charity in the process. The whole clan were pictured wearing t-shirts emblazoned with ‘Team Romeo’.

Celebrity-charity strategic alliances benefit both parties in multiple ways. Very importantly, they provide established as well as fast-tracking entertainers and athletes meaningful opportunities to leverage their current and growing stature to drive support to philanthropic causes they feel deeply about. For non-profits, the benefits of aligning with celebrities can be tremendous. Aside from having the services of people who care about their causes, the charities get spokespeople who can champion their positions and are regularly instrumental in helping to fundraise.

In a study of 165 talent agents and managers, more than four out of five of them have addressed the matter of charitable giving and personal involvement with their more successful entertainment clients. Many times the agents and managers are involved with helping them identify and work with charities that are synergistic.

According to Rick Flynn, Co-CEO and founding partner of LVW/Flynn and author of The High-Functioning Single-Family Office, “There are basically three levels of strategic alliances between celebrities and charities. The first level is where the celebrities commit some time and money. They will donate to the cause in various ways and attend some events. Their involvement acts as a magnet for other volunteers and contributors. The next level is where something of a joint venture takes place. This is for celebrities who focus on a particular cause and concentrate most of their philanthropic activities around that cause. The third level is where celebrities form their own charities of private foundations.”

According to John Bowen, founder of BSW Inner Circle, “For successful celebrities who are looking to become closely connected with a particular cause or to create their own charities or establish a private foundation, many personal factors habitually that goes into the decision. At the same time, aside from their agents and managers, a growing cohort of specialists can work with them to help them sort through their options and make decisions aligned with their philanthropic agendas and careers.


“When celebrities get seriously involved in philanthropic causes, many tax strategies can enable them to make their monies do more — usually, a lot more.” explains Frank Seneco, President of Seneco & Associates, an advanced planning specialist working with entertainers and athletes. “However, in our experience, most importantly, what is driving the trend of more and stronger celebrity-charity strategic alliances is the power and the fame that all kinds of celebrities have, which can be leveraged to benefit causes they care intensely about.”
