From throwback baby photos to never-before-seen candids, celebrities and Father’s Day are a notoriously adorable combination. Over the years, we have grown accustomed to getting an intimate look into the family dynamics of our favorite celebrities, through posts that outline their gratitude and affection not only their own fathers, but often for their husbands, and the fathers of their children too. Amid the flurry of messages and tributes that made their way onto social media in honor of Father’s Day yesterday, here’s a round-up of some of our favorites.
In an honorary post addressing her friend, mentor, and father figure, the late designer Azzedine Alaïa, Campbell took to Instagram with a photo of the pair, writing “Happy Father’s Day to my Papa @azzedinealaiaofficial!!! My forever inspiration, strength & heart, I MISS YOU TODAY AND EVERYDAY 🕊♥️ 🕊Blessings to all the amazing fathers in the world today.”
Following in her sister, Kim’s footsteps, who also took to social media to celebrate the special day, Kourtney honored her former long-term partner and the father of her three children, Scott Disick in a post that reads “Happy Father’s Day, thankful for you and these three special ones.”
Picked from her archives, the Dutch-Moroccan-Egyptian model posted a beautiful photo of her mother, father, and grandmother taken in Casablanca with a caption that reads “this picture makes me so happy 🤎Mama, Oma, Papa in Casablanca …. they have taught me so much, but one of the most important lessons was love. Loving yourself and having the confidence to go out in the world and pursue your dreams… and loving others and all of our differences that make us individuals. Happy Father’s Day 🤎🤎”
In a poignant post targeting difficult issues surrounding racism, and being the child of mixed-race parents, the French model honored her father with a series of pictures for Father’s Day. Writing “Happy Father’s Day Papa Bruna 👑 This man taught me so much about respect and LOVE !! My dad moved to Africa for 6 years where he met my mom, they got married and got my sister in Congo. Then they moved to the south of France where I’m born. I remember walking into stores with my sister and my dad and people being surprised because we weren’t white. We educated few of them ✊🏾✊✊🏽✊🏻”
Taking to Instagram with a preview of a video that was posted in it’s entirety on the singer’s Youtube channel, Camila wrote a long and heartfelt message to her father, thanking him for his love and kindness. “Papa, I made this for you,” the post begins. “Thank you for loving me, unconditionally, ferociously, and constantly. Doesn’t matter if I fail or succeed, doesn’t matter if I feel on top of the world or like the dirt on my shoe lol. You love me just because you love me, without me needing to do or be anything other than just me. thank you endlessly, for everything. Thank you for showing me what love is and for showing me how to be loved. I will always be your little girl ❤️ te amo mucho papa, thank you for being my hero, happy Father’s Day.”
