#1 Brad Pitt
“You know, nowadays I really can’t wait to get home. More than at any time in my life, I’ve got purpose – real purpose. It feels like I’ve found my place. Everyone talks about the joy of having kids –- blah, blah, blah. But I never knew how much I could love something until I looked in the faces of my children.”
#2 David Beckham
“My favourite time when I look back from day one with my sons and with, obviously, my daughter, each parent talks about the waking up during the night and the feeding during the night but, for me that was the most special time. It doesn’t matter what time of the night it is or how tired you are, they make you smile, they make you happy.”
#3 John Krasinki
“I truly ― every single night ― say, ‘I can’t believe these two amazing girls are mine’. Family for me, it’s a non-negotiable thing. So if I’m honest, I was shooting 6,000 miles away from them, and I flew back every single weekend.”
#4 Ashton Kutcher
“When you first get them … you’re all excited, and you’re ready to do all these things. Then you realise it’s like getting a new cell phone where all the features don’t work yet. It’s like a phone [that] won’t take pictures, and you’re like ‘Why won’t my phone take pictures?’ And it won’t make calls, and it doesn’t do a lot. But it looks really cute!”
#5 Matt Damon
“The only way I can describe it — it sounds stupid, but — at the end of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, you know how his heart grows like five times? Everything is full; It’s just full all the time.”
#6 Ben Affleck
“They’re most important in my life. Family is a wonderful thing, but it doesn’t mean you can’t do other stuff in your life. In fact, having a family makes whatever other thing you have that much richer.”
#7 John Legend
“A lot of what we do, we think about our kids and the future we want for them. A lot of it is also about character and interpersonal behaviour toward each other at home, and we want to model that in the way we talk to each other and in the way we talk to them. We want them to be smart, we want them to be kind, we want them to be good leaders, and we want them to be empathetic. And hopefully we’re able to model that at home with them.”
#8 Barack Obama
“As fathers, we need to be involved in our children’s lives not just when it’s convenient or easy, and not just when they’re doing well — but when it’s difficult and thankless, and they’re struggling. That is when they need us most.”
#9 Prince William
“I never used to get too wound up or worried about things, but now, the smallest little things, you well up a little more, you get affected by the sort of things that happen around the world…a lot more, I think, as a father.”
#10 Prince Harry
“The person who may be sitting here today that doesn’t realise that someone looks up to them, that – for that person – you inspire them to be kinder, better, greater, more successful, more impactful,’ he told attendees. Perhaps it’s the newfound clarity I have as a father knowing that my son will always be watching what I do, mimicking my behaviour, one day maybe even following in my footsteps. But it’s not just my role as a father that shows me that; it’s in the people I see every day that don’t realise how inspirational they are to those watching.”
