Which celebrity would you trust your children with? Definitely not Richard Heene, the self-made helium balloon dad. With constant media scrutiny on every parenting decision they make, celebrities who are dads definitely have it tough. Here's GreatDad's unofficial list of top celebrity dads.
Celebrity Dad #6: David Beckham
Even Beckham's worst detractors in the media cannot fault the handsome football champion for his parenting skills. Praised by everyone as a model dad, Beckham is also known to be a devoted father to his sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz.
Celebrity Dad #5: Johnny Depp
The wild Hollywood rebel known for his eclectic (and often weird) roles is surprisingly protective and caring of his children, daughter Lily-Rose and son Jack, from girlfriend Vanessa Paradis. Choosing to raise them in the healthy French countryside, Depp even 'wears' their names as tattoos.
Celebrity Dad #4: Peter Andre
Recently, more than 2000 mothers across the UK voted in a poll to vote in Andre as the father of the year. Describing himself as "over the moon", the pop star did confess to having wanted this kind of recognition. "For the last couple of years I've been saying that if there's any kind of award I could win it would be dad of the year," he has revealed.
Celebrity Dad #3: Matt Damon
The Academy Award-winning screenwriter and actor plays loving father to Alexia, wife Luciana's daughter from a previous marriage, and Isabella, the couple's first child. A second child is also on the way.
Celebrity Dad #2: Will Smith
The acclaimed actor is a complete family man, happiest when he is with his wife and kids. The doting dad has even shared the screen with his kids: son Jaden has acted with him in The Pursuit of Happyness and daughter Willow in I Am Legend. Treyball Development Inc., the Beverly Hills-based company that Smith co-owns with his brother, is named after his first son, Trey.
Celebrity Dad #1: Brad Pitt
If there ever is an Academy Award for the best performance as a father, Pitt would be nominated, simply for his parenting style. Pitt, already father to four kids, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, and Shiloh, is keenly awaiting the birth of the twins wife Angelina Jolie is carrying.
