Yesterday, we gave single moms some love. You didn’t think we’d forgotten about the men out there raising kids on their own. Here are 10 celebrity single dads that deserve a high five.
“father-daughter” I thought he had 2 sons?
Congratulations to all the fathers out there raising their kids!!! Pat on my back also! lol..
The pendulum is finally starting to swing in men’s favor. Courts are granting more custody to men and women are paying child support to the men (wow), and a new generation of father’s are doing the right thing. Congratulations Dads!!
Most of these men are NOT single dads. Co-parenting vs single parent is totally different. Big ups too the fathers who are taking their places in their children lives.
You can call it co-parenting or whatever, but if you are not married tot he mother of the kid(s), YOU ARE A SINGLE FATHER. Duh.
I said the same thing, and you and I are right, Usher has 2 boys, so IDK where they got father-daughter from
Some of the fathers on this list are questionable. They might have their children around here and there but the mothers are the ones who deal with them when their sick and all of the extra stuff behind the scenes. What about Eric Benet? He is DEFINITELY a single dad after his daughters mother died
fall back u femi-nazi ameriskank…b1tches like u probably complain about fathers not being there and when the men that are get some shine u got into pure hate mode…are u seeing this ppl, this the sh1t us men talk about…missk automatically tryin to turn a positive into some bitter jealous hateful negative sh1t…fucc off bitter b1tch, fucc off!!!
@GM – – i hope no1 talks to ur mom like that. wow!
MissK is right, MOST of the times it is the mom taking care of the essentials of the child.
on the other hand; it is refreshing to see men (esp. minorities) largly apart of their kid’s life.
~PROPS TO MISSK~
PS: and all the femi-nazi stuff – – uncalled-for. dont be threated by a strong female. usually those who dont have strong women in their lives (i.e. your mom) get nervous wen a strong minded woman speaks her mind #sodamnsad
@mone: there are lots of single fathers and fathers period in the lives of their children handling essentials, they just getting sh1tted on and get minimal if any recognition for it becuz they’re men…women get all the sympathy cuz ur viewed as weak victims in society and then y’all complain about being single parents a lot more than single fathers do, most single fathers complaints are being denied access to their children and stop w/the hope u dont talk to ur mom like that as if any/every woman is my mom smh
You are so right MissK. I was thinking the same as soon as I saw the headlines. HOW COULD ERIC BENET BE LEFT OUT. HE HAS BEEN DOING THIS MANY YEARS. HE DESERVES TO BE 1ST ON THIS BOARD. AND NOT TO LET MY SON DARYL WILLIAMS OF STUDIO CITY, CA. AND AN OFFICER IN THE U.S OF A. ,ALSO KNOW THAT HE GREW UP NOT KNOWING HIS FATHER FROM THE VIET NAM ERA, AND HE NEVER MET HIM FROM NEW YORK, A MARINE,FLOYD. WE LOST CONTACT WHEN I MOVED FROM THE MILLINGON TN. AREA, BUT HE IS TOP DAD TO ME ALSO. HE REFUSED TO LEAVE HIS SON ALONE WITH ONLY MOM, AND FIGHT FOR WORK AND HIS OWN AND HE IS AND NEVER WILL LET HIS SON BE WITHOUT HIM TO DEATH. HE NOW DESERVES TO BE HAPPY ABOUT HIS SON NICK. HE SHOULD HAVE MORE, BUT HE IS NOT A QUITTER. LOVE YOU DARYL…THANKS ERIC ESTRADA FOR BEING A FRIEND TO MY SON DARYL.
on the D Wayde good father thing. If he cared for his kids that much he wouldn’t have participated in such a lurid and public affair. And Gabriel…shame shame shame.
being a father has nothing to do with who a man is involved with relationship-wise…thats grown folks business, kids dont got to worry bout that, as long as the children have access to BOTH PARENTS, then its all good…women just think that way cuz they’re infamous for using kids to try an control men and keep other women away…sad bitter b1tches they are smh
I guess the definition of single mom and single dad are different because I only see maybe 2 who actually have raised their kids on the own with limitted or no help from the mother.
no there the same definition…its when a parent, man or woman, is no longer in a intimate relationship with a significant other/partner…its the same as being single, its just now ur a parent lol
by the end of 2010 i’ll be at the top of that list. Hear that wifey?
Eminem is actually a good father and he has three daughters
@G.M. my dude..u need to fall back….you’re probably mad cause you’re a deadbeat dad…All I was saying is stop giving these guys so much credit when the most they do is throw a few bucks at their kids and spend time here and there…NOT ALL MEN…but some…when the mothers are the ones who get down with the nitty gritty with their kids and do all the hard pushin..just saying..
HOW THE FUCC DO U KNOW WHAT THEY DO AS FATHERS…THATS WHY UR A TYPICAL FEMINIST, SINCE THEIR RICH MEN THEY MUST NEGLECT THE KIDS, TOSS A COUPLE STACKS AT EM AND ONLY SEEM WHEN ITS TIME FOR A PHOTO-OP…BUT GUESS WHO ARE THE ONES HIRING ALL THE NANNIES RAISING KIDS: THE MOTHERS, SINGLE OR NOT
why isn’t Katt Williams listed there? If there is one admirable dad out there then it’s Katt Williams, raising 8 children by himself!
Katt Williams should be at the TOP of this list. Not only is he raising 8 kids, they’re adopted kids.
how can a man who is rich be single?honestly? Me thinks Gay.
I’m all for giving “single dads, credit”, but when you are soley responsible for the care, housing, the child is actually residing w/the dad then you are a single parent…etc….
There are some single dad’s out there famous and not famous that do a hell of a job “coodles” to them…
I’m starting to think you have some serious baby mama issues. What’s wrong is she using ur kid as a bargaining tool: give me this or you wont see ur kid.” or are u mad u have to pay child support. poor thing.
get em girl! cuz this child has been spewing hate on this whole story. probably hasnt been to school becuase clearly he does not know what a single parent means.
Wat bout Jermaine Dupri. He should be on the list
Is Ludacris a Single Parent or just a Co-Parent???
both…a single parent is a man/woman who is single but has a child and a co-parent is a man/woman who raise their kid together even when they are no longer a couple
Um, didn’t know Ursh had a daughter! I thought he had two sons. Also, how many of these guys are really single dads? I think some of them spend as much time with both parents. I don’t recall reading Tameka lost custody of her kids. Did that happen?
I also thought the mother of Jamie’s daughter was involved, just not all on the red carpet.
For everyone saying some of these guys are not doing it by themselves, please stop. Most single mothers don’t do it alone either. Their mothers and other familiy members pick up A LOT of the slack. In many cases grandparents put in just as much time and care as the “single” mothers.
you never lied LOL
@G.M. I have a question for you. Are you gay? Not that I have anything against gay people. I just wanna understand why you hate women so much. #thatisall
Yeah I was thinking the same thing Eric Benet been raising his daughter by himself since she was a baby. He seems like a damn good, loving father should Mos def be on this list.
Congrats to all the providing loving Dads. Lord knows they/we all need help in the courts to be looked at as equals when trying to get 50/50 custody.
I agree, most of these men are not single fathers. lets learn the difference. They are coparenting with a mother and have set visitation schedules
Er the entire world cares about FOOTBALL, try finding someone outside your own country who gives a sh*t about any of your ‘sports’ American ‘football’ = rugby + unnecessary protective gear. Baseball is basically rounders, a game played by English schoolgirls…
I’m a single mom. I’m there 24/7. I have custody, I’m responsible for my son’s care all the time. If you either see your child only when you want to, or when the court says you can, you are not a single parent. You just have kids, kids that you don’t raise. My son’s father lives 4 hrs away, and hasn’t come to see his son in 2 mos. But for whatever reason, he thinks he is the optimal father, on top of everything. Dude has never even pushed my boy around in the stroller!
Kudos to them but they are doing what they should and suppose to do rather single or married.
I thought this site was about BLACK PEOPLE. WTF is Al Pacino, Colin Farrell n others of their ilk doing on here? Where are the true BLACK single celebrity dads like Eric B.
