There’s no doubting the fact that a father’s strong, positive, presence in a boy’s life is a key ingredient to them growing into responsible men. So, when we see fathers and sons bonding it makes us smile. We put together a mini collection of some of our favorite photos of famous fathers hanging out with their boys.
Jerry Seinfeld is one of the funniest, and richest, dads around, and we’re almost certain he keeps his sons, Julian, 11, and Shepherd, 9 laughing all the time. His wife, Jessica, took this snapshot of the boys while they were on their way to see grandma. The Seinfeld’s also have a daughter, Sascha, 14, the oldest of the clan. The funnyman once revealed to Parade magazine that although his kids lack for nothing he does not spoil them.
Gavin Rossdale’s precious photo with his 4-month-old son, Apollo Bowie Flynn, takes our breath away. Mommy, Gwen Stefani, shared the moment on her Instagram page. The power couple also have two older sons, Zuma Nesta Rock, 5 1/2, and Kingston James McGregor, 8.
Usher Raymond showed off the most precious photo of himself, along with his little mini-me’s hanging out on The Voice set. We know that with all the excitement that happens on the popular singing competition, it was a fun experience for cuties, Usher Raymond V, 6, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 5. The proud papa once told People magazine, “I’m a dad, first and foremost. Of course I have to travel and make a living, but my sons are my priority….I never knew I could be so happy just hanging out with them.”

Josh Duhamel and his 9-month-old baby boy, Axl, posed in an adorable father/son photo before the U.S.-Germany World Cup match last week. At one point, mommy Fergie got in on the photo op. And, although the the US lost that game the adorable pair were winners in our eyes.
Earlier this year, Will Smith and his sons, Jaden, 16, and, Trey, 21, had male bonding time by jumping out of an airplane! Trey is Will’s child from his previous marriage to Sheree Fletcher, now on the VH1 reality show, Hollywood Exes. Smith also has a 13-year-old daughter, Willow, with current wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith.
Simon Cowell may be a busy mogul, but that doesn’t stop him from spending quality time with his 4-month-old baby boy, Eric. The 54-year-old shared a precious snapshot of his son right before bath time.
David Beckam seems like one of those cool, fun, dads, at least that’s the impression he gives when he’s hanging out with his three boys, Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, and Cruz, 8. The retired soccer player routinely spends time with his sons, and it’s refreshing to see. The brothers also have a little sister, Harper, 2, who’s probably running all over the house trying to keep up with her big bros!
Looks like Tom Brady has some future athletes on his hands. Benjamin, 4, and John Edward, 6 1/2, look like pros tackling their doting dad. The NFL hunk is regularly seen spending quality time with his boys, from baseball games, to walks in the park to hanging out at the beach. The brothers also have a darling baby sister, Vivian Lake, 19 months, who’s probably hanging out with super-model mommy, Gisele.
