The 16th of June is a significant day in our history but also a special day the world over as we also take the time to show appreciation to the fathers who haven’t shied away from their dad duties, and have taken full responsibility for the lives for their offspring.
If it were possible we’d make mention of the millions if not billions of the amazing fathers around the globe. However, due to obvious limitations, it isn’t possible, nonetheless, we’ve selected a few local celebrities we think have been great fathers thus far.
From Skeem Saam’s Cedric Fourie to Hip Hop star Riky Rick – check some of our favourite celebrity dads.
A day rarely goes by without Cedric sharing appreciation posts about his son and this isn’t just for face as he always brings up his little one during interviews. Cedric is a proud father who is enjoying every single moment of fatherhood.
Riky Rick and his beautiful partner Bianca share two beautiful kids in Jordan and Maik. Although a stepfather to Jordan, He’s been the best dad possible – in our eyes – and a great example to her. We all know raising a daughter isn’t easy. He’s also a great father to Maik whom we all know from Riky’s Instagram videos.
Say what you say about the man but he’s been a great dad to his two children. Despite making the headlines for mostly the wrong reasons, Emtee never lets that affect his parenting duties.
From our standpoint, Thapelo Mokoena has been a great dad who’s solely focused on his responsibilities as both a husband and a father. Despite being one of the most sought after actors on the continent, fatherhood remains his number one priority.
