This is the day…. Not all men that have children can call themselves "FATHERS". It is us, the fathers that parent like it is the only thing we've been put on earth to do. Any man can lay down with a woman & create a child, but it takes a special type of man to cherish, care for, support & love that child from the day it is conceived until your days here on earth are finished. I take personal pride in being everything that my children need, day in & day out in hopes that one day they will all grow into amazing adults who will take everything that I have taught & instilled in them & share it with their children. I father because it is me, I father because these gifts bestowed upon me by God make every waking day a complete joy for me. I am honored to work for them.. I am happy to be there whenever they need me… & I am elated that after all I've been through in my life, I have them to keep me motivated making it that much easier to be exactly what we are being honored today for…… BEING A FATHER. I absolutely love the role given to me & I promise not a day goes by where I am not trying my hardest to better myself as a parent to my children….. It is the thing I'm most proud of in life & I try to at least inspire all the fathers especially the young ones across the world….. For they are our future….. & Again, this is OUR DAY… So let's celebrate !!!! #HappyFathersDay from #TEAMLOVE

Happy Father's Day to my darling husband. You are the most humble, happy and caring person I know. The thing I love most is that regardless of what happens in your professional life you come home the same happy go lucky husband and father ready to just be there. I love that you can get on the floor and play with the girls, take over bed time duties and simply be present with our girls. Not to mention the random princess tea parties that can happen at any moment and you always oblige. We love you so much dada!!!
Celebrating with all the fathers tonight at medusa #HappyFathersDay
