Yesterday, families across the word celebrated and shared their favourite memories with their fathers, husbands, partners, grandfathers and the leading men in their lives on social media, thanking them for their enduring love, compassion, support and, of course, the occasional 'Dad joke'.
As a result, we've rounded up the sweetest messages from celebrities on social media, paying tribute to their knights in shining armour.
God I am so lucky you were my dad. I remember right before you passed away I thanked you for everything u taught me & I told u I would raise my kids with everything I learned from you, whenever that time would come. Well I kept my promise dad! Thank you for being the best!

Happy Fathers Day to this wonderful 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

My dad is my hero. Kind, compassionate, wise and loving.. and strong. He has been so strong these last few months. It blows me away. I love you dad. It is an honor to be your son. Behind every great man is an amazing woman and @mamadjonas is that for sure. We're missing one Jonas brother in this photo cause he wasn't born yet but @franklinjonas you are the man. Proud of who your become. And @kevinjonas happy Father's Day to you too! Your girls are beautiful.

@afshineee is most literally my day one ⚡️ Happy Baba's Day ⚡️ Thank you for creating an environment where creativity and life experience is valued and so fully supported in a way that has made way for an abundance of opportunity. Thank you for helping me thrive on this unorthodox path of mine. Thank you for having the same oxymoronic taste is music: appreciating J cole as much as Pink Floyd, Bob Marley (shout out to your radio days), and Tom Waits . I can't wait for you to find out what happens to Janie and TeaCake so we can discuss ❤️️❤️️❤️️ love you Baba

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.

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.
