Jay Z, LeBron James and more gushing about fatherhood
In honor of Father's Day, celeb daddies gushing about parenthood
"[Fatherhood] has changed me in a way that...just knowing what's important... but I had a pretty good sense of that. It just reaffirmed all things that I believed I knew.”
"Fatherhood is more than a job, it's more than a responsibility. It's a lifestyle. You gotta be prepared to live it."
"I'm a fun dad until you don't do what you're supposed to do. But even the tough dad is still fun because I can't not laugh at myself for trying to be tough!"
"As a father, now I get to give my son the life I never had. Being able to give him anything he wants is one of the best feelings in the world ."
"Fatherhood is an important responsibility that is more than just being a title in name only. It is being an example. It is the man who takes the time to really help mold us into who and what we are to be. As our children are reflections of us, it means that it is important to reinforce respect, consideration, and love. To all men who are big brothers, cousins, grandfathers, uncles, cousins, and our extended community of men who take this responsibility seriously, I salute you."
“My whole life growing up I just kinda always said ‘why me, Why me, why didn’t my dad wan’t to be around? I feel like I’m a pretty cool kid, I’m a good kid, why wouldn’t he want to be around for me?’ And as I got older, when I had my own family, I started to think the reason he wasn’t there is the reason why I became so strong mentally, so loving to my mother. I am who I am today because he wasn’t there, because I use it as motivation. Everything that I’ve gained, he has a role in that.”
"It takes time to understand. You've made a brand-new person. The thing I think about as a dad is just protection. That's my only goal -- to protect my daughter. That's my instinct."
