The life of a celebrity is nothing short of hectic. It’s hard to live a normal life when you’re constantly being approached by fans or expected to act a certain way. However, celebrities are normal people after all. They have responsibilities and families that they have to take care of just like us. Unfortunately, for some celebrities, being the best father they can isn’t always their top priority while for others it is. Here’s a list of some major celebrities that make a point to be the best father they can be regardless of their fame.
