You’ve read all of the go-to parenting books – now it’s time to get some tips from dads in the spotlight…
David Beckham on bedtime stories
‘I read a book to my children – they love the Gruffalo although Brooklyn is a bit old for that now. Harper just loves fairies, she's all about fairies and princesses so I'm reading fairy books at the moment.’□
Bruce Willis on the first year
‘Stay home for the first year, don’t go anywhere, just be there. Play with that baby every day.'
Brad Pitt on being a dad
‘Fatherhood is the best thing I ever did. It changes your perspective. You can write a book, you can make a movie, you can paint a painting, but having kids is really the most extraordinary thing I have taken on.’
Ben Stiller on his own childhood
‘When we were visiting New York City, I took my kids to the same playground where I went growing up. It was fun to feel that connection of having gone there as a kid and being there as a parent.’
Tom Cruise on dressing a toddler
‘Listen, I believe that she (should wear) whatever she wants to wear – she dresses herself. I want to encourage her creativity and her own self-expression. I think that’s important for the child’s own identity.’
Kanye West on making a baby
‘I mean, we were just practicing all the time. Practice made perfect.’
Marvin Humes on being hands-on
'All dads have got to be hands on, so he'll have to change nappies too and sterilise the bottles.'

‘The important thing is to just not take on too many things. I try to have at least a day or two days a week where I’m not at work. That’s the important thing – to be around.’
Johnny Depp on fatherhood
'I would say the same thing to any pop, you know. The best thing – the only thing you can do – first of all it’s the greatest thing you will ever experience, without question. It’s the greatest ride ever. The best thing you can do is just love them and be there.’
Peter Andre speaking exclusively to M&B on dad priorities
‘If you put [your kids] first, you’re a good parent. And there’s no set rule for how you bring up your children but if they’re your first priority, you’re being a good parent.’
Simon Cowell isn’t the only famous dad who’s proudly showed off his newborn – there are a whole host of celeb fathers who’ve publically declared their baby-daddy pride and been snapped enjoying heart-wrenching moments with their tots. And don’t we just love them for it.
