Between Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson performing a song from Moana for his toddler daughter, JAY-Z taking Blue Ivy to a basketball game, Chris Hemsworth surfing with kids, and John Legend documenting some quality family time on Instagram, there are so many sweet celeb dad moments with their kids to aww over.

Celebrity moms get a lot of attention, and for good reason, of course. It's tough to be in the limelight all the time and still give your undivided attention to the little people who lean on you so heavily. But it's also important to take a moment to celebrate the many devoted celebrity dads who are so smitten with their adorable little ones.

Whether it's Ryan Reynolds once saying that he's "sort of into" his children with Blake Lively or The Rock doing literally anything that he does with his kids, these famous dads are just the sweetest. No need to pick favorites here, folks. Really just all of these dads are busy loving on their littles and it's honestly just great to see in the many posts they have shared on social media over the years. So, without further ado, let us all collectively swoon over these cutie dads.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

No matter what they may be to us, these celebs are "dad" first to their kids, even if they also happen to be the demigod Maui from Moana. After trying to explain to his super adorable daughter Tia that he voices one of her favorite characters, Johnson surrenders to being just "daddy" — and I'm just fine with that.

John Legend

Chrissy Teigen gets a lot of media attention for being an outspoken and hilarious mama, but proud dad John Legend is always on the scene being a super dad and loving on his littles. This selfie of the whole fam is just one of many sweet moments he has documented.

David Beckham

If you're against parents kissing their kids on the mouth, I honestly don't know what to tell you — and neither would David Beckham. Even since his kids have gotten older, Beckham has been showing them big love.

The very cute Knowles-Carter family does everything together, including pushing one another when needed. In March, JAY-Z stepped up when Blue Ivy wanted to meet Lebron James at a Lakers game, telling her she needed to make the move herself if it was going to happen. Building kids up is such an important part of parenting that Jay is knocking out of the park.

Neil Patrick Harris

Good ole NPH is probably the world's cutest dad. Just look at him and his "girls" in this post.

Kanye West

Don't let his grumpy face fool you, Kanye West clearly loves his kiddos — just look at this sweet cuddle moment Kim Kardashian posted.

Barack Obama

When he's not busy being the world's best husband, President Barack Obama is loving all over his two little girls and it's honestly a gift to get to see it.

Mark Zuckerberg

Aside from a little project called Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg is busy raising two kids and keeping them from becoming "spoiled." What does that look like in real life? Lots of hands-on time and "not giving them everything" they ask for, as Zuckerberg told the Money Manuel. Not an easy task, I assure you.
