FATHER'S DAY FAB: YBF Dads We Love...And Why They Love Their kids!!!!


It's FATHER'S DAY!  And we've rounded up pics of just a few of our fave dads (30+ to be exact).  Plus the sweet words they've said about their kiddies...and it made us love them even more.

Check out our fave dads plus a gallery of Father's Day pics inside... Courtesy of TheYbf.com
Jay-Z is celebrating his first Father's Day with Baby Blue Ivy:
"I imagine I’ll take things I learned from my mom and things I’ve learned from raising my nephews and apply that. [But] then at the end of the day, I just know I’ll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever.”
Usher & sons Naviyd & Usher V:
“Naviyd is addicted to peppermint, but he had already had dinner and dessert. So I told him he couldn’t have any candy, and he walked off. A couple of minutes later, when he thought I couldn’t hear, he was asking my mother if he could open a peppermint candy. He was trying to manipulate the situation.” (Usher says he had “a good laugh” at Naviyd’s efforts, but ultimately denied him the candy.)
San antonio Spur Tim Duncan and son Breck and daughter Sydney:
  
T.I. with sons Messiah, Major & Domani and stepdaughter Zonnique:

I haven’t given [my sons] much advice on the music business yet because I still don’t know how serious 'they are] about it. Most of my advice has been to [them] as an artist, as a MC and that is talk about what you know and how you feel. Don’t get caught up trying to do what everybody else is doing and also to expand his vocabulary…
The Dream with daughter Violet:
"I don’t [offer help] because my “helping out” turns into expectations. I’ll get Violet on a late night maybe one or two times, but after that, no. If Christina’s tired, call the nanny, call Violet’s granny. We got people."
(We guarantee that view is about to change real soon)
Swizz Beatz with daughter Nicole and sons Nasir, Kasseem, Jr. and Egypt:
“The best part of being a dad is being able to encourage my children and teach them, show them the dos and the don’ts, and just mold them into a better me."
Djimon with son Kenzo & Russell Simmons wth daughters Aoki Lee & Ming Lee:
“The way young people think, you want to think like them so they teach you a lot. Having a child teaches you so much.  That really is the best part of being a dad. You remember what’s important in life.”-Russell
Robin Thicke with son Julian:
As anybody knows, there’s absolutely nothing that can compare. He’s the best part of everyday and he’s adorable, sitting here in the kitchen right now having blueberries and yogurt.
Nick Cannon with twins Moroccan & Monroe:
"We just [baby-proofed] the house recently, but they are so smart. They know how to take the knobs and the baby proof stuff off. They know what's baby proof, so they are like, 'We are not suppose to be touching that -- so we are going to go touch that!' It's crazy!"
Ne-Yo and daughter Madilyn & son Mason:
"Madi’s a little rough and tumble with me because she was my first kid, so all of the little boy things I wanted to do, I did with her. She and I wrestle. [Mason is] the most mellow baby on the planet.”
The Game with sons Harlem and Justice (also has daughter Cali Dream):
“Today was the best day of the last 4,” wrote Game. “I just woke up today & got the idea to go & check all 3 of my children out of school early & surprise them with a random trip to Disneyland…. They had a blast & so did Daddy. Days like this make up for all the bad days I’ve ever had. The love my kids & I share balance my life so perfectly…. It’s almost too good to be true sometimes."
Kevin Hart with daughter Heaven and son Hendrix
“I was always the silly one.  Now I make my daughter laugh all the time. She thinks her daddy is crazy. Her vocabulary is growing, so it’s all about the big words. Right now the word is ‘hypothetical.’ She says ‘let’s go do some of that hypothetical stuff’.
Jamie Foxx with daughter Corrine:
“We walk out of a restaurant, they take pictures of me and her an they say, ‘Jamie Foxx with a hottie.’ Like they think she’s actually my girl. But she’s incredible, filling out. She’s walking down the street in Beverly Hills, people are blowing horns. I’m literally in the street, ‘You stop it! Walk past me! Hide your butt…! I’m so overprotective.”
Eddie Murphy with kiddies Shayne, Bria, Miles, Christian, Bella, Zola, and Eric:
Dwyane Wade and son Zaire and Zion:
The daily role I play in the lives of my two children is the single most significant undertaking of my life, and the job I take most seriously. While my basketball career has brought me many rewards – including an NBA Championship in 2006 and an Olympic Gold Medal in the 2008 Summer Games, my children are the two greatest gifts of my life.” 
Warryn Campbell (husband of Mary Mary's Erica Campbell) and kiddies Krista, Warryn III [Wozie], &Zaya:
"Father's Day means so much more to me now that I'm a father. I love my three children very much. They are the apple of my eye. All different personalities, but somehow all just like me. They love me even if no one else does. I now fully understand my dad and all he did and does for our family. I'm going to take time to celebrate the man who taught me how to be a man."
Usher and his sons Naviyd & Usher V:
“Naviyd is addicted to peppermint, but he had already had dinner and dessert. So I told him he couldn’t have any candy, and he walked off. A couple of minutes later, when he thought I couldn’t hear, he was asking my mother if he could open a peppermint candy. He was trying to manipulate the situation.” (Usher says he had “a good laugh” at Naviyd’s efforts, but ultimately denied him the candy.)
Ziggy Marley with Judah, Gideon, and (Baby) Abraham"
Will Smith and daughter Willow and sons Trey & Jaden:
 
“That Willow, she is, uh… See, boys are easy. Like, it’s really easy with boys. It’s like, until you can beat me in a fist fight you’ve gotta do what I say!”
Snoop with sons Cordell & Cordae and daughter Cori B.:
My kids always heard my music from day one so they've been exposed to everything. They've been exposed to the truth because the truth don't have no prejudice. I've always expressed nothing but reality to my kids so that they understand when they leave outside of my house that it's a real world out there and it's not gon' be catered to you with maids, butlers and tutors. You're gonna have to go out there and survive and make it happen on your own.
Nas & daughter Destiny:
I ask her [if I was a good dad when she was growing up] from time to time. She says I was great. She says I was cool. So, yes, I did my best. But it wasn't good enough for me. So that's why I did this ["Daughters"] record.
Chris Rock and daughters Zahra, Lola & Nazeeri:
“I was definitely telling the guys at work [on the set of What To Expect When You're Expecting] what to do a lot of times.  It helps to be a dad in real life when you’re playing a dad on screen.”
LA Clippers star Chris Paul and son Chris, Jr.:
“Fatherhood has changed me for the best. It’s the best thing ever. I’ve been fortunate enough to have a dad who’s always been there for me and at every game, and I’m so excited to do that for my son."
Bow Wow and daughter Shai:
Right now, she's on everything Nickelodeon. Anything that comes on Nick. That's it. Anything that comes on Nick, she knows. It's really all up to her, you know? But of course, I'm Hip Hop so I already know what she's gonna listen to in the future.
President Obama and daughters Sasha & Malia:

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to ALL of our every day, fun & amazing dads!
