12 Best Celebrity Dads

Tom Cruise

Like Brad Pitt, adoptions suggest that Cruise is a dedicated father. While his two adopted children with first wife Nicole Kidman are now adults, they grew up under Cruise’s roof following the divorce, though there is much public speculation as to whether this was due to love for dad, or brainwashing by the Church of Scientology.

And now, in a further show of dedication, Cruise seems to be pulling out all the stops to secure custody of his daughter, Suri, from former wife Katie Holmes. Lawyers for both sides are poised to begin battle, and the church’s role in the potential upbringing is expected to play a role in the legal arguments.

Usher

Any dad who cries at the birth of their children is on the road to becoming a great dad. The R&B singer described his crying at the birth of his first son as, “the realest tear I ever cried—it was uncontrollable.”

Ben Affleck

We suppose that Affleck should make the cut as he was probably among the most photographed Hollywood Dad of recent years, with loving photos of him with his daughters being staples in all the celebrity magazines — that is, until the paparazzi got more interested in dad’s relationship with the kids’ nanny.
