Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will have had some inkling that it was Father’s Day last weekend. Social media platforms become a cess-pit of tribute posts – some were cute, some were funny, and some were downright cringe.
And, obviously, celebrities are always keen to join in with the fun. A number of celebs took to social media to share some touching tributes, heartwarming throwbacks, and hilarious posts on that special day.
But one that stuck out, in particular, was J Lo’s beautiful tribute to her ex-partner and father of her children, Marc Anthony – not for her message, in particular (although it was adorable), but for her current fiance, Alex Rodriguez’s, comment on the post. Keeping reading to see the post, but be warned: it’s damn cute.
They are the predominant male figure in our lives and, despite their terrible jokes, we love them.
It’s the one day of the year wherein we can dedicate the full day to our dads – to show them how grateful we are for everything they do for us. So what better time to post a mushy paragraph online than on Father’s Day?
