“Anyone can be a father, but it takes a real man to be a daddy.”– Anonymous
You don’t have to be a famous father in order to make a difference. But here are some famous dads who get it right!
President Barack Obama likely has the one job in the USA (and possibly the world) that would excuse him from being a “hands-on” dad. But this political powerhouse has demonstrated a love and fierce protection over Sasha and Malia and don’t we love him for it. Whether it’s keeping his children grounded by having grandma live at the White House, or personally going to check out the kids new school when they arrived to DC, or as we all know by now allowing his kids to be kids, even when they play hide-n-seek in the Oval Office. If there was ever a Papa Bear to admire, his name would be Obama!
Will Smith is a hands on dad with a blended family. Reportedly while son Jayden was filming Karate Kid in China, papa Will made a commitment to fly back and forth to the USA to be present for his older childs’ b-ball game. That’s a dad who truly works to keep his word. Keeping your word with a child is extremely critical.
No list would be complete without America’s Favorite Dad, Bill Cosby. As Dr. Huxtable on The Cosby Show, Mr. Cosby is everything you’d want your dad to be in real life, funny, compassionate, accessible, and even with a busy job and home—Dr. Huxtable was present. When real life tragedy struck and his only son was found murdered, America held its breath because the bond of a father and son can be among the deepest. Dr. Huxtable used humor to teach his clan life lessons and in real life, Mr. Cosby used humor and a smile to get through the toughest of times.
