There has been much said about single moms and paens have been written on them since time immemorial. And while single dads have it easier in the world on account of the fact that they are male, they too have to struggle to ensure that their children have the best life possible.

There are many single dads who’ve taken up the mantle of parenthood single-handedly after a bad breakup or after being widowed. Over the years, as knowledge about it grew and the taboo surrounding it released, many male celebrities have also chosen to beget children through surrogacy. On Father’s Day, we catalogue a few single celebrity dads you are acing at single parenting.
