My Dad's a Star

My Dad's a Star

Now we’re not giving out awards for the best celebrity dads but apparently nightclubs are. Whaaaat? Famous face Kevin Federline is receiving the compliment from Prive in Las Vegas…where he will throw a party on Father’s Day. How appropriate. Partying it up is just what a dad should do.

We won’t rate and tabulate, but one of the sweetest of papas in our book is Chris O’Donnell, who shows off his fathering skills in theaters next month as Abigail Breslin’s dad in ''Kit Kittredge: All American Girl.” A real-life daddy of five with his wife, he says ''Being a dad is better than any movie role I could ever hope for.'' Double aw.

Brad Pitt is a top contender of best celeb dad, as he is always seen around with one of his several children. He takes them to school, to the zoo, on vacation (OK, probably some pretty sweet vacays!) and more. Very real.

You probably know this, but being a dad doesn’t end when your kid is 18. Papa Joe Simpson, father of singers Jessica and Ashlee, has been known to interfere a bit too much. Not just in their professional lives, but in their date choices! Let’s not go overboard.
