In 2017, celebrities took to Instagram to celebrate Father's Day. From Cheryl's cute post about new dad Liam Payne, to Nicole Richie's beautiful tribute to Lionel, there were a plethora of heartfelt messages.
Since Day 1, you have always been there with open arms! You have always given your all! I'm so grateful for the Man and Father you are to our family. You are truly The Best Dad In The World. We love you soooo much! #HappyFathersDay@DangeRussWilson ❤️
My dad was a very good dad with a deep, tender heart. . . . I have his eyes and (thank God) his comedic timing. I have his love of an audience--hams to the Nth degree, me and my dad. He was ultimately so proud of me and my determination in this field (and it took a lot for his pride to outweigh his caution). He came to the city to see all my shows (and boy, no one hated New York like my dad hated New York). He sent effusive, plosive emails about how badly he hoped a job or audition would go my way--and his joyous excitement when it did. . . . This was the last time he schlepped to NY before his cancer got the best of him. @halleyfeiffer, he loved your play so damn much. . . . My heart is with those of you missing your dads today. And my heart is full for all the amazing dads I get to know--and gratitude for having had mine. 💗

I took this photo right after John won his Tony a couple weeks ago. In all our time together (11ish years!!?!?) I cannot believe how much he has grown as a man and a husband. To see him go from big goals to big ideas to big wins and the love of so many makes me so so happy. 10 years ago, I didn't think he could get better, then I got to see him as a father. I don't know how or why Luna, my family and I got so lucky in this life but I will stop questioning and just be grateful. I love you so much, John. Happy Father's Day.

Happy Fathers Day to the BEST daddy on this planet!! THANK YOU for all you do for our 6 children. You lead by example, you parent with passion, consistency, focus, determination and love. You take the time to discipline (time out for me ends in about 30 seconds) you are an incredible teacher! Not just today but everyday we want you to know WE all love you far beyond your imagination!! Happy Fathers Day to all the incredible dads, step dads, and all and any father figures (and Moms that are doing both roles) that make this world a better place ❤️

My grandpa was my dad for all intents and purposes. Here he is- guarding over me as I sleep, kitten on tummy, arm resting on a pile of stuffed animals. He would do silly voices, sneak me candy, pretend to be asleep when we were annoying him & generally be the best. He held your hand so tightly that we called it, "the claw." I think a lot of grandpas & family members fill in the gaps for biological dads who are ill-equipped or unable to parent well. I'm so grateful that Papa made it to 95 but, boy, do I wish he was still here with us today.
To all the fathers out there who love unconditionally, who put their children first above all, we love you!! To my son, Rob, on your first Father's Day... I am so so proud of you!! I've watched you grow into the most loving, caring father to our precious angel, Dream. Your father would be so proud of you. I love you and I'm proud of you Kanye and Scott. You amaze me every single day and all of my grandchildren are so very blessed to have all of you as fathers. To all the amazing dads out there, Happy Father's Day!!! #FathersDay
This may look like a blurry shitty iPhone pic but here's what it actually is: an image of my father on his zillionth ER trip of the year with me last month, checking to make sure no one came into the room who didn't need to. This man has been with me day and night: as I slept after surgery, as I was wheeled into an MRI, as I lay abject and feeling sorry for myself. He made friends with every nurse. When I got home he blended banana shakes when I wouldn't eat, woke me up with my meds at 3am and made me laugh every day. He gave up his own busy life to make sure I could return to mine. I'm healthy and safe because of his unyielding love. On this Father's Day I want to celebrate all the men who defy the signals culture sends them and nurture, nurture, nurture. I love you Papa. You're my best friend.
#HappyFathersDay L-Train. 🚂🚂 You lift me up & keep me smiling. I am lucky to have you. Not everyone gets to celebrate today. To the 4 year old daughter of #PhilandoCastile & every child who's father has been taken from them: I see you, & my heart is linked with yours today and EVERYDAY because #weareone
Happy Fathers Day to this amazing person, who is not only an amazing (loving, fun, kind, wise) dad, but also an incredible partner, who has made it possible for this mama to chase her dreams, always cheering her on, even when her mom-guilt hits hard. That's love. Otis, Daisy, and I are so very lucky. ❤ (also... DILF.) #sorrynotsorry
