19 Celebrities Who Love Their Kids More Than Anything Else

Parents are the first people a child meets and the most important figures for their development. It’s they who offer them food, love, support and knowledge about the world. And for parents, kids bring a different meaning to their lives, making them look at everything from a new perspective.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo

The soccer superstar now has 6 kids with his girlfriend, but for years he has been a single dad to his oldest son, whose mother’s identity wasn’t revealed. When asked about raising his son alone, the Portuguese athlete said that little Cristiano ’’doesn’t need a mother, just me — having a father is enough."

2. David Beckham

When speaking of some of his favorite times with his children David Beckham said, “Time goes by really fast. One minute you’re holding them in hospital for the first time, and then the next minute, they’re driving their car. But it’s the most special thing, I would never change anything.”

3. Serena Williams

Serena Williams talks about being vulnerable versus being strong in an interview, saying, “As an athlete, you can’t be vulnerable. You have to be strong, as a mom, you’re completely vulnerable to everything. And that’s what makes it scary.” But keeping going and smiling like nothing ever happened inspires her to rock as an athlete and a mother.

4. Josh Duhamel

Josh Duhamel is a father to Axl, a son he shares with his ex-wife, Fergie. They agreed to share legal and physical custody, and Josh does his best to be a good father. He gives his son the freedom to choose who he wants to be in life, as long as he is happy.

As for his parenting style, Josh says that he can be a cool dad as long as the boundaries he sets don’t get crossed: “I can be a softie sometimes, but he knows not to push me too far because he knows that I’ll put my foot down when it’s time.”

5. Andy Cohen

Single dad, Andy Cohen, welcomed his son, Benjamin, via surrogacy in February 2019. Speaking on his parenting philosophy, he said, “I want to go with the flow and not get stressed out.”

6. LeBron James

The basketball superstar, Le Bron James, considers himself a family man. He has 3 children, and when it comes to parenting, James’ only guide has been his mother, Gloria Marie James. He says, “The truth is that everything I’ve learned about being a parent...I learned from my mother.”

7. John Stamos

The famous actor held off until the age of 55 before starting a family. Stamos was almost ready to give up on having a wife and a kid, but then he met his current wife Caitlin. He said: “I thought it was beyond me... but it’s given me a reason to live.” Their son Billy was born in 2018.

Overall, fatherhood is a blessing for John: “Every second you pray that you can keep the kid alive. Every day is different, time has become very elusive, stuff just goes by so fast. It’s just beautiful. I’ve cried most days. I just stare at him.”

8. Chris Hemsworth

When talking about parenting, the Australian actor says, “I think [parenthood] brings out the child in all of us,” he adds. “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.”

9. Charlize Theron

The Hollywood star revealed that she knew she wanted to adopt since she was 8-years-old. And she finally made her childhood dream come true in 2012 when she first welcomed her daughter, Jackson, into her life. 3 years later, another girl, August, joined the small family.

The actress is a proud single mom who thinks that ’’there is absolutely no shame in that game to be in a relationship with yourself." She went on saying that she’s “never been lonely” because her 2 daughters are “the great loves of her life.”

10. Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian has some powerful parenting advice for her young daughter: “I do want her to be exposed to as much inclusion but variety as possible. I don’t want her living in a bubble, because we do have this very privileged life, and I want her to know all types of life and all types of living and be very aware of that.”

11. Enrique Iglesias

Enrique Iglesias, the famous Spanish singer, is a proud father of 3 children. He looks forward to seeing his children flourish in the future, saying, “I can honestly tell you if I had to pick one, definitely sports,” he remarked. “Yeah, I would say yes, just because I love sports. I love golf, I love tennis, and I would not mind seeing one of my little girls play tennis.”

12. Alec Baldwin

After marrying Hilaria Thomas in 2012, Alec Baldwin’s life got a new beginning. So far, the couple has had 7 children together. Baldwin also has a 24-year-old daughter, Ireland, from his marriage with actress Kim Basinger.

14. Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris expressed that he is the “bad cop” when it comes to disciplining the kids. His parenting style is different from others as he is more of a “camp counselor” than a “maternal nurturer.” He also shared that being a parent has helped him develop as a “better listener.”

15. Viola Davis

17. Hilary Duff

18. Bruce Willis

The Die Hard star’s second marriage also gave him a second shot at being a father. Bruce has 2 daughters with his current wife, Emma Hemming. Their oldest, Mabel, was born in 2012, and their second girl, Evelyn, in 2014, which made Willis a father at 59.

19. Jeff Goldblum

Goldblum became a father for the very first time at 63, with his third wife Emilie Livingston. 2 years later, the couple had their second child making the Jurassic Park star a daddy again at 65.

The actor masterfully embraces being a mature parent: “I’m glad I waited. It feels great to do it right now, because all the things I’m considering are perfectly suited to the big questions and challenges of having kids, and what you want to expose them to. What you want to leave them with, what life is, and what kind of life you contribute to them.”

Which age do you think is the best for someone to become a parent?
