11 May Team Spirit’s Fave Celeb Dads
With Father’s Day being just over a month away, we couldn’t think of any better excuse to do a bit of research into Team Spirit’s fave celeb dads. It does mean we’ve had to raid through some of these guys Instagram’s but, some how, going through David Beckham’s photos hasn’t felt like a waste of time…
The newest recruit to the club, Prince Harry wife, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, gave birth to a baby boy on May 6th. The couple went for the name Archie Harrison Mounbatten-Windsor. That’ll be an easy name to learn to spell in reception. We’ve long had a soft spot for the Duke of Sussex so we’re not surprised that parenthood suits him.
How could Beckham not feature on a list of best Celeb Dads? David and Victoria have four children together, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper and, if we’re following the word of social media, it seems his kids love him so much they could burst. This is despite the fact that David apparently made Brooklyn work in a cafe to learn the value of money. He’s since moved onto photography so we’ll be keeping an eye on him. (Fun Spirit x Beckham fact: David once tipped our Marketing Assistant, Jess, £15 when she was working at the VIP bit in Glasto. #namedroppingisfun)
Awards to most creative and cutest on social media must surely go to ex McFly member, Tom Fletcher. His youtube videos are enough to make the most cold hearted tear up a bit (or at least vageuly smile). His three children with his wife Giovanni, Buddy, Buzz and Mario (okay we didn’t say the awards were for kid names) have been immortalised in so many cute videos it’s hard to pick the best. Our favourites include the Bump to Buzz and Bump to Buddy videos. Strange, they almost sound like our ‘Bump to Baby’ shoots? That wasn’t a subtle plug? Oh well, just so you know. We do those.
The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star has a four year old son called Jack who, rumour has it, is quite the fisher. A weird fact to know but according to Pratt, Jack insisted on holding a barracuda and then ate it raw. Pratt captioned the photo of the fishing conquest saying ‘”Haha!! 4 year olds will try anything! Get out and fish! No better way to share God’s bounty with your babies and make life long memories than fishing!”. We agree Chris, but have you ever tried professional Family Portraits? Arguably better way to keep memories than eating raw barracudas, just saying..
Safe to say Will certainly has the wackiest – if not, most successful – kids of the parents on this list. Will has one son, Trey, from his first marriage with Sheree Zampino and later went on to have a son and daughter, (Jaden and Willow) with current spouse Jada Koren Pinkett. Both Jaden and Willow are actors and singers with Willow currently being mentored by Jay-Z and Jaden performing on tracks with the likes of Brockhampton. Jaden has also been a partner in a Spring Water Company since the age of 12 and was the first male model to wear women’s clothing for Louis Vuitton. Pretty cool family really.
Just when you think he can’t get better, Channing Tatum posts super cute photos of himself with daughter Everly. Channing has recently split from his wife, Jenna, which makes his sad because we fell in love with them during the famous dance battle scene. We’ll be okay though, we’ve heard time is a healer.
As Wikipedia subtly puts it ‘Pitt has been cited as physically attractive by many sources’ but turns out, Pitt is also a pretty fantastic Dad too. Brad Pitt has 6 children with Angelina Jolie – who he split with in 2016. Four of their children are adopted whilst the twins were born in France in 2008. The rights for the first images of the twins, Knox and Vivienne, were jointly sold to People and Hello! for $14 million which makes them the most expensive celebrity pictures ever taken. The couple donated the proceeds to the Jolie-Pitt foundation.
Does it get any cuter than this? Hemsworth’s wife, Elsa Pataky, shared this sweet snap of the Thor star napping with two of their kids on a plane. (The pair are parents to twin boys, Sasha and Tristan, and a daughter, India.) “Nothing better than sleeping in papa’s arms!” Pataky captioned the sweet snap on June 2, 2016. We’re so tempted to make a joke with some Avengers Endgame spoilers that we’re just going to leave it at that.
Think your hubby is a better Dad than all of these guys put together? Why not show him with a Father’s Day gift that will immortalise that forever. Take a look at some of our favourite photos of our Spirit Dads with their kids. You can book your shoot here!
