It’s Father’s Day and celebrities are taking to social media to pay tribute to the special men in their lives.

The actress shared a sweet photo of herself and Hussle spending time with their 2½-year-old son Kross. “One of the reasons I fell in Love with You…. Your Fatherhood,” she captioned the photo. “Today we celebrate You. Love you Ermias”
In a lighthearted tribute, Star Wars celebrated the franchise’s most iconic father/son pair by sharing a photo of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), with the caption: “Sith Lord and son. Happy Father’s Day.”

It’s also important to honor first-time dads like Prince Harry, who became a father on May 6 when his wife Megan Markle gave birth to their son Archie. Their official Instagram account shared a precious image of Harry holding the royal baby.
“Happy Father’s Day! And wishing a very special first Father’s Day to The Duke of Sussex,” the post read.
Father’s Day isn’t only for biological fathers, as Demi Lovato made clear in a special tribute to her step-father. The singer and actress has had a challenging year, but Eddie always had her back.

Thank you for always being here for me and showing me how a man should be there for his family. I love you tons.”
Instead of going on tour with the Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham decided to spend time with her family over the weekend. The fashion designer and singer shared a photo of her husband David Beckham and their three children with a special note about what he means to her.
