Fatherhood has been a huge blessing for these celebrity dads, with many of them sharing sweet updates of their journey. Here, we take a look at some of the heartwarming moments when these fathers dote on their children, from David Beckham to Jamie Oliver...
Rachel Riley recently melted hearts after sharing a new picture of her little girl Maven being doted on by dad Pasha Kovalev. The former Strictly Come Dancing star was seen giving their eight-month-old a sweet kiss on her cheek whilst holding a cuddly teddy bear.
There's no denying that both David and Victoria Beckham are affectionate parents; the pair often share heartwarming pictures with them kissing their kids. However, the former footballer has been subjected to criticism after posting an Instagram snap of himself and Harper during an African safari with their family. The snap was simply captioned, "Kiss for daddy," alongside a heart emoji.
"I got actually criticised for kissing my daughter on the lips the other day," he said during a Facebook Live a few years ago. "I kiss all my kids on the lips. Brooklyn, maybe not. Brooklyn's 18, he might find that a little bit strange."
He added: "But I'm very affectionate with the kids. It's how I was brought up and Victoria, and it's how we are with our children. We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them, and support them, and we're very affectionate with them." Here, David is pictured kissing son Romeo's head during the 2018 Invictus Games.
