The Rock is well known for his reputation as World's Best Dad, but this latest photo of him with his daughter Jasmine is literally taking adorable to a whole new level.

The actor, real name Dwayne Johnson, posted an image of his daughter painting his face while he eats breakfast, and the conversation between them might just leave you gasping for air.

He outlines a morning in the life of a busy father; he asks Jasmine for a kiss before he leaves for work, and gets a little more than he bargained for.

He posted the caption:

"Me: Baby come here and give daddy a kiss, he’s gotta go to work. 
Jazzy: But daddy I have to paint your toes. 
Me: Nope, daddy’s got his shoes on and gotta go to work, now come give me a kiss. 
Jazzy: Ok, then let me paint your face, daddy. 
Me: *confidently laughs* Absolutely not, now I gotta go to work, now get over here and kiss me. 
Jazzy: *while looking up at me with her mama @laurenhashianofficial’s intoxicating blue eyes… BUT DADDY, I need to paint your face for work. 
Me: Ok, but make sure you choose manly colors that are flattering to my complexion.
As much as I tell her no, with my crazy busy life, this is the stuff I actually love  #ohana"

He previously posted a similar image, describing his attempted trip to work and how it was taken over by a nail painting session. We don't know which of the pair we're more jealous of..

Johnson clearly adores his daughter, and we don't blame him.

The actor and his partner Lauren Hashian are also parents to Tiana Gia, who was born in April. The Rock also has another child from a previous marriage.

We hope he never stops posting pictures like these, otherwise what else would brighten up our days in this icy weather?

One of the reasons Ellen De Generes is one of America's most popular chatshow hosts is because she takes a no-holds-barred approach to her presenting style.

Viewers have both laughed and cried with the host who seeks to share as much of her life as possible with the people who watch her show, and this week was no different.

Having seen her community of Montecito devastated by a mudslide, Ellen had told viewers she was struggling with the aftermath, before later revealing she had been dealt a second blow this week.

With great poise, Ellen told viewers that her father, Elliott DeGeneres, had passed away in recent days.

Paying tribute to the man she believes gave her her sense of humour, Ellen gave the studio audience and viewers at home an insight into the life she shared with him before recalling the only family vacation she took as a child.

We'll let Ellen take it from here.



Amy Huberman has written touching tribute to her dad on Father's Day. She took part in the Irish Times article called Father’s Day: My father before he was a dad.

Amy speaks about her father's early life and how he remembers being in London during air raids when he was just four-years-old.

The IFTA winner's dad says that he remembers his mother took him on a train, and he had to have a number around his neck.

Clutching onto her hand, he will "never forget the moment she had to leave him."

"She returned to bring him home when it was safer, saying whatever the uncertainty, at least they would all be together. The heartbreak of that overwhelms me."

Amy then goes on to talk about his later life and his career.

"After leaving school early and later going back and putting himself through college, he went on to become a successful fashion designer running his own company.

"I’ve always valued his tenacity, his conviction and commitment, his bravery, his decisiveness, his spirit of adventure and his belief in, at the very least, simply trying."

"I am lucky to know him. I am lucky to call him Dad," Amy added at the end.



A 17-year-old girl from California shared a picture on Twitter last week of her dad staying by her mam's side while she undergoes treatment for cancer.

Her mam had to be isolated, and from it came one of most heart-warming and sweetest things you'll ever see.

The teen, McKenna, spoke to Buzzfeed and told them that her mam was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last October, and during her treatment last week, she was isolated in her room.

And her dad stayed as close to her mam as he possibly could.

McKenna's picture, which shows her dad sitting outside her mam's bedroom door, has gained nearly 3,000 likes since she posted it, and the Internet is exploding over the love her dad has for his wife.

McKenna told Buzzfeed: "The amount of love I've received is crazy and I didn't expect any of it, but I'm so grateful."

Her mam added: "Jon goes to every doctor's appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation. And, as you can see, if he can't be by my side he is as close as he can get!"


Parents copying their child's social media photos is nothing new.

Many mothers and fathers have taken to their own social media pages to show them doing the same pose or wearing the same clothes as their younger beings, and honestly, we think it's all good fun.

But the latest parent that's catched onto the trend is getting major backlash for it.

Chris Burr Martin, who is a comedian and podcaster over in the US has been copying his daughter, Cassie, for a few months now, and his following has doubled because of it.

Looking at Instagram, Cassie is all for it, even sharing the photos on her own social media pages and posting pics with her dad reading books like I'm On The Internet, What Now?. However, people on Facebook have different ideas.

One FB user said under an article about the family, "I think the girl looks adorable and her father is mocking her instead of supporting her. It's not funny, this is kind of sad."

However, on the other end, another person argued, "I think it's fun. Obviously they have had a 'talk' and she knows what he's doing so clearly there's some humour in all this."

Another backed up that point saying, "I think the both of them are awesome. They make a good father daughter team.

"The only laughing stock are the envious haters on either end. She's cool, he's hilarious, they're having fun."

Some people are very serious about their views, just look at the comments above. What side are you on?


To celebrate the release of her fifth studio album, Lady Gaga has added a very special piece of ink to her ever expanding tattoo collection.

Yesterday, the Perfect Illusion singer took to Instagram to unveil the meaningful tattoo which is dedicated to the woman who inspired her new music collection, her late aunt Joanne who died of Lupus-related complications aged 19.

Across two posts, the 30-year-old star explained how the piece of body art is a direct reflection of Joanne’s signature and revealed that her father now has a matching tattoo.

“Got Joanne tattooed on my arm in her actual signature,” she wrote.  “My dad got one too.  With an angel on his shoulder.”

In an interview with Howard Stern this week, Gaga explained how Joanne’s death impacted her life and that of her father.

“She’s like this goddess that we worshipped in our family our whole lives,” she said.  “Her picture was always up, and it was framed so beautifully in the house.  We talked about her all the time, every family meal… she was like a guardian angel or spirit guide.”

“I never understood why my father drank so much and why he was so angry and why he was so overprotective and why his eyes would just blister out of control when I showed a sign of independence or wanting to leave the house or be on my own,” she confessed.

“And I always thought it was my fault.  So this album for me was about healing the wounds of being a young woman growing up in a tough family and figuring that out.”




Backstreet Boys band member AJ McLean took to social media last night to reveal that he is about to become a father for the second time.

The singer – who already has a three-year-old daughter named Ava Jaymes – used Instagram to announce that his wife Rochelle DeAnna is due to give birth in Spring 2017.

Next to a picture of four shoes of various sizes the 38-year-old star wrote: “So the Mclean family will be expecting a new addition to the family next Spring.”

He then continued the excitable post with a pun about the American holiday Labour Day: “#laborday!  Ha get it “labor” day!  I’m a goof!  #avaisgonnabeabigsister #baby2!  Keep you all posted!!  We’re so excited (sic).”

AJ and Rochelle have been married almost five years and he credits his model partner with helping him overcome his past struggles with addiction.


I love my Ava Ava.

Scott Disick may no longer be with his baby mamma Kourtney Kardashian, but that doesn't mean his relationship with Kourtney's younger brother Rob has suffered.

The Lord's long-running bromance with the father-to-be reached a new milestone recently as Scott shared some parenting advice with Rob.

Scott – who is the father of six-year-old Mason, four-year-old Penelope and one-year-old Reign – advised Rob "not to get ahead of himself" and to treat "everyday like it's a new day" when his first child with Blac Chyna arrives this Autumn.

The reality star told Rob to "be present, be happy…have a positive energy and a positive vibe so [his] child comes into the world with a positive energy".

Speaking candidly about his friend, Scott told E! News: "I think he's going to be unbelievable. He's got one of the biggest hearts I've ever seen. He's just an amazing guy and I'm so happy for him."

He said: "Rob is like my brother and I love him more than anybody in the world. I've been around with him and helping out where he needs help and kind of showing him the ropes of what it's going to be like to be a new dad."

The 33-year-old New Yorker also explained that Rob's child will be more like a brother or sister to his children than a cousin because the extended Kardashian family is so close.

He said: "We're all such a close-knit family that all of our kids are more like brother and sister and not just cousins. It's bigger than just cousins."

"We all live within each other's lives, so yeah, it's like everyone is like everybody's [child]. So it's not going to be different when Rob and Chyna have their kid, that's going to be a sister or a brother to my kids."

While this will be Rob’s first experience of fatherhood, his partner Blac Chyna already shares a three-year-old son with Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend Tyga.

Rob and his fiancée are set to have their experience of pregnancy documented on a new reality show called Rob & Chyna which is due to hit screens later this year.



It looks like Simon Bird has grown up a lot since his days on The Inbetweeners as the comedian has revealed that he is now a father.

In an interview with Heat Magazine the actor admitted his wife of four years Lisa Owens gave birth to a baby boy six months ago.

During the joint interview with his Friday Night Dinner co-star Tom Rosenthal, the 31-year-old actor joked that his son is already “quite judgemental” after Tom said that Simon’s baby has a “slight judgemental air about him”.

Simon – who met his wife while preparing a script at Cambridge – then said: “He’s only six months old but I feel like he’s already patronising me.  It’s great.”

The Surrey native’s big break came when he was cast as Will McKenzie in E4’s hit show The Inbetweeners back in 2008.

He has since starred in the two Inbetweeners movies and Friday Night Dinner, as well as creating a comedy panel show called The King Is Dead for the BBC.




The Edge’s father, John Garvin Evans, has passed away.

John died at the Bon Secours Hospital in Dublin after a “long and courageous battle with illness met with typical joie de vivre”, according to RIP.ie

Tributes have poured in for Mr Evans after his passing on Saturday and U2’s loyal fans have showed stunning support for The Edge on social media.



A heartwarming picture uploaded onto Reddit four days ago has touched people around the world – notching up almost 4million views and thousands of comments in the process. 

The snap, taken in Vancouver, was published under a headline which simply says: 'Dads'.

It shows a smartly dressed man walking the city's streets soaking wet. Over a small, t-shirt-clad boy with a brightly-coloured lion rucksack on his back – a child presumed to be his son – he holds an umbrella to shelter him from the heavy rain.

Understandably, the photograph has sparked a social media storm since being shared.

One description of it reads: "My dad wasn't around for me as a child, so I've got no role model. Can I be a good dad to my kid?"

While another commenter points out: "But you see, dad is doing more than keeping him dry. He's teaching him how to put others before himself."

A third user states: "You're the only father this kid is going to have, so do your absolute best every second of the day."



Kanye West is known for his dislike of the paparazzi, even going as far as to anger a lot of people by comparing the intrusion of paparazzi to rape:

“I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherf*****s following me. Everybody here, they like sex, right? Sex is great when you and your partner be like ‘hey, this is what we both want to do. But if one of those people don’t want to do that constitute, that’s called rape. That is called violation.”

So, it came as a surprise to basically everybody, when Kanye recently revealed that his dad was actually a paparazzo!

The admission came during a deposition in which Kanye is being sued by paparazzo, Daniel Ramos after an incident in which Kanye grabbed his camera and got more handsy than he probably should have… 

Kanye said: “My father was a paparazzo himself. My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counsellor.”

The rapper, who is married to Kim Kardashian, went on to say that not all paparazzi are bad: “Sometimes I get in the car with paparazzi. Paparazzi help me to park. The paparazzi watch my car and make sure the cops don’t give me tickets. There are some nice guys out here trying to just feed their family. And then there’s a*****es like the guy you’re representing.”

Sounds like this guy really got under Kanye’s skin – we wonder what he said?!

Well, something Kanye didn’t like, that’s for sure: “And this guy is asking me about dumb sh**. So, you know, I’m sorry that i tried to grab his camera … I’m not here to hurt people.”

Despite the rapper’s heartfelt pleas he was sentenced to 250 hours of community service, two years probation and 24 anger management sessions. Yikes! We think he’ll think twice before losing that temper again!
