Xzibit of a Father

Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 7.34.26 AM

This Fatherhood Friday, we shout out 1CoolDad, rapper Xzibit. He lost one son prematurely but has two sons that he is raising into men, Gatlyn and Tremayne. It’s Fatherhood Friday!  Salute, X to the Z!  #DadsRule

“I became a father at the age of 19. Now, at that age along with a definite lack of maturity you can only do two things when it comes to being a father. One, rise to the occasion and sacrifice for the safety and stability of your child. Or two, fail miserably.”

“My responsibility is to send decent human beings out into society.” – Xzibit

 

The Walk Fatherhood Friday

I did not know that Joseph Gordon-Levitt, of the new film”The Walk,” was married or a dad.  He has become one of the young actors I enjoy watching so it’s only right that he is a cool dad.

He welcomed a daughter in August and had this to say about fatherhood:

“It’s wonderful and it makes me really happy.

Fatherhood Friday Funniest Dad Quote, Thanks Ryan Reynolds

Screen Shot 2015-07-31 at 1.10.15 PMDads say the darndest things.  The star of the upcoming Marvel blockbuster, Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds just made my day. The actor and recent father of a beautiful baby girl with actress Blake Lively, named James. What?  My daughter’s name is Michal (pronounced Michael), so say something – LOL.

Okay, I will share a few fatherhood quotes from Reynolds. I died after the first one.

“I used to say to her (MY WIFE), ‘I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.’ And then the second I looked in that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment, if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby.”

“Everyone thinks their baby is a genius. People find it delightfully refreshing when I tell them, ‘My baby? Totally average. Like, 100 percent average.'”

“If anything else woke up every 45 minutes during the night demanding to see my wife’s breasts, you kill it. [But with] a baby, you’re like, ‘Wahoo!'”

“It’s amazing that you can be that exhausted and that happy at the same time.”

Fatherhood Friday Jerry Seinfeld

Jerry-Seinfeld-autism

Comedian and cool dad of three, Jerry Seinfeld is stepping up for fatherhood. Recently, he hosted Baby Buggy’s the inaugural Los Angeles Fatherhood Initiative Lunch in California.  The Baby Buggy Fatherhood Leadership Council includes Jason Alexander, Jason Bateman, Kevin Hart, Jay Leno, Michael Richards and Bob Saget.

Baby Buggy is a non-profit started by Jerry’s wife, Jessica. Jerry believes that fathers lack a support system, so this initiative fills part of the void and allows these celebrity dads to support one another in their daddy journey.

“Women do that naturally.  Men — it just doesn’t even cross their mind. They just quietly suffer, and that’s why a lot these marriages go south. People suffer and suffer and suffer and they go, ‘I can’t take it anymore, I’m outta here.’” – Jerry Seinfeld

“I wasn’t surprised that I loved fatherhood as much as I did,” Seinfeld recalls. “But I was surprised what I needed to learn that I didn’t know, which is one of the reasons I wanted to do this. Being a husband and a father — you don’t get any training, and people need training.” – Jerry Seinfeld

Fatherhood Friday Josh Grant

Motocross pro Josh Grant is big on bikes, speed, tricks, dirt and family. He is all about his wife Ashley and sons Easton and Wyatt. A cool dad for sure. Salute! #FatherhoodFriday

Fatherhood Friday with Scandal

Fatherhood is scary but just think of it as practice, that’s what the “Scandal” TV show star, Scott Foley, does. The 42-year old cool dad and husband recently welcomed his third child and wasn’t afraid to mention how terrified he was. But, no scandal here; he has stepped up to the challenge. It’s what we do. Happy #FatherhoodFriday #DadsRule

“It’s terrifying. It should scare the hell out of you. But it’s amazing. There’s nothing else I can think of that has that juxtaposition of being at once terrifying and the worst thing you can do for your happy life and the best thing you can do for your happy life to make it even better.” – Scott Foley

“I’ve had a ton of practice and I wasn’t sure I wanted any more practice. But I’m so glad I’m practising again. It’s great. With three kids, I spend all my time at home now.” – Scott Foley

Fatherhood Friday Bo Knows

Fatherhood Friday Guarding the Galaxy

Today, we ride with Guardian of the Galaxy Chris Pratt, father of 2 year old son Jack and husband to actress Anna Farris. Jack was born nine weeks premature, and as a father of premature twins, I can relate to the helplessness and call on God to get you through.  Pratt recently had some cool words to say about his experience becoming a dad.  Also check him out in  “Guardians of the Galsxy,” recently released on DVD, a movie that really surprised me. I loved it.  Can’t wait to watch it with my son. #FatherhoodFriday #DadsRule

On seeing his son in NICU

“It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it.”

“I’ve done all kinds of cool things as an actor: I’ve jumped out of helicopters and done some daring stunts and played baseball in a professional stadium, but none of it means anything compared to being somebody’s daddy.”

“I made promises in that moment about what kind of dad I wanted to be and I just prayed that he’d live long enough that I could keep them.”

 

Fatherhood Friday McConaughey

Star of the new Chris Nolan movie Interstellar and the absolutely awesome HBO series True Detective, Mathew McConaughey gets his true fulfillment from being a dad.  He is a father of three Livingston Alves McConaughey, Levi Alves McConaughey, Vida Alves McConaughey. #FatherhoodFriday … and he’s a Redskins fan!

“It’s the only thing I’ve always wanted to be. I knew when I was 8 years old. I mean, I wanted to be things like the Washington Redskins running back and all that stuff, but the one thing I knew I wanted to be was a father.”   – Mathew McConaughey

I understood that was why my dad was making me say “Yes, sir” and “Yes, ma’am” to elders.  You know, “I’m not on par with the adults yet. There’s places to go.” – Mathew McConaughey

Fatherhood Friday Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum is a little over a year into this fatherhood thing so today we salute the movie star.  He is cool dad to a baby girl, Everly, and husband to actress Jenna Dewan Tatum. #FatherhoodFriday

No doubt Channing and you will protect your daughter as all cool dads do.  #DadsRule

Fatherhood Friday Dave Chappelle

When we think of Dave Chappelle at DaddysCool, we don’t think “crazy,” but “courageous.” He felt that the spotlight and fame was not “conducive to raising a family” and walked away from $50 million to continue doing his TV show. You all probably know by now that he is back, but we wanted to give the cool dad of three some shine.

 

“Money is the fuel for choices. But There are other things in my life that I did not purchase w money that are very valuable to me”. – Dave Chappelle

“Once I got kids I got focused.” – Dave Chappelle

“Constantly take inventory of what’s important to you.” – Dave Chappelle

“My theory is that there’s nothing hard about being a father. Being a father is one of the most natural things.”

“It’s the rest of life that’s so hard. Co-parenting, finding the right school — all of that crap is a giant headache.” Being a father is incredibly simple. I always wanted to be a father.”

Fatherhood Friday Ray Donovan

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 5.37.07 AM

Today we are rolling with Liev Schreiber, Hollywood fixer in the hit Showtime series Ray Donovan (Season 2). The actor makes his kids a priority and celebrating fathers like that is what Fatherhood Friday is all about.  He has two sons with longtime partner actress Naomi Watts — 6-year-old Sasha and 5-year-old Samuel.

“It’s amazing how insignificant everything else becomes,” Schreiber said of his fatherhood. “It sounds romantic. But the reality is that you go brain-dead for 2 ½, 3 years and slowly return to the world. … You kind of lose all ambition.” – Liev Schreiber

Fatherhood Friday Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg, who has four children under the age of 11, takes the cover of the Fatherhood issue of Esquire and drops a few fatherhood gems in the process.  #DADSrule #FatherhoodFriday

“I think the most important thing is to always be involved in every aspect of their life. To give them enough trust that they can share things with you.”

“I don’t want them to be terrified of me, but I don’t want them to think they can do whatever they want and get away with it, either, because they can’t.”

Actor Hank “Not a children kind of person” Azaria explores fatherhood through a new documentary web series. 

He talks to his famous friends including my #1 seed as the worst TV dad that you love to hate, Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston. It starts with questions about fatherhood for a soon to be father and along the comically cynical journey Azaria becomes a father.
