Bruce Willis, Tom Pelphrey, and More Celeb Dads Are Being Honored on Father's Day 2023

Celebrity dads are feeling the love on Father's Day 2023. On Sunday, June 18, the significant others, children, and even exes of famous dads like Bruce Willis, Kurt Russell, and Tom Pelphrey shared photos and tributes on Instagram in honor of the father figures in their lives.

Willis's wife, Emma Heming Willis, and his ex-wife, Demi Moore, kicked off the day with tributes to their favorite girl dad. "Father's Day is a time I get to reflect on my deep appreciation and respect I have for Bruce as I watch him father our little ones," Emma wrote alongside a photo of Bruce with one of his young daughters on Instagram. "Where it might not be 'conventional,' what he's teaching them will span generations. Unconditional love, kindness, strength, compassion, patience, generosity, resilience. Happy Father's Day to the greatest dad I know, who will forever be the gift that keeps giving within our family."

Emma and Bruce share two daughters together: Mabel, 11, and Evelyn, 9. He also has three adult daughters — Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah — with Moore, who shared her own post in appreciation of the super dad in her children's lives.
