Our Favorite Celeb Dads – Favorite Twin Dad

Friday, June 13th, 2008

From musicians to athletes to actors, join us as we continue our countdown to Father’s Day with the hottest celebrity pops in the business. And we’ve even got a genuine super hero dad!

Favorite Twin Dad – Brad Pitt
We were going to call this category “Favorite Movie Star Dad,” but then the news broke on May 14th that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are expecting twins this summer. We’ve known for months that Brad’s partner Angie was pregnant again – and yes, celebrity gossip pundits have long speculated about a possible twin pregnancy.

But in an interview with the Today Show’s Natalie Morales, Angie confirmed that she and our favorite movie star dad, Brad Pitt, are in fact expecting two little bundles of joy. They know the genders of their babies, by the way, but “prefer to keep that private,” says Angie.

Despite the fact that the Jolie-Pitts are about to become their very own version of the Brady Bunch (as Angie’s costar Jack Black joked in the Today Show interview), our love for Brad as Dad dates back to the start of his relationship with Angie. Soon after hooking up with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith costar, Brad adopted her now 7-year-old son Maddox, whom Angie had adopted from Cambodia. The couple added Zahara (from Ethiopia), 3, Shilo (the couple’s first biological child), 2, and Pax (from Vietnam), 4.

According to Brad, he couldn’t be happier with his full house: “I love it and can’t recommend it any more highly – although sleep is nonexistent,” he quipped at a recent press conference. It would take a lot more than sleep deprivation to slow down a humanitarian heartthrob like Brad Pitt.

When the Today Show’s Ann Curry asked Brad about his new found drive for charitable projects (like his $5 million green urban renewal initiative in New Orleans), the Missouri-native replied passionately: “I’ve got kids now. It changes your perspective on the world. I’ve had my day – I’ve made some films. I’ve really had a very fortunate life. It’s time for me to share that now.”

The Jolie-Pitts currently have two boys and two girls. There’s no word yet on which way the gender scales will tip once their twins arrive – although if rumors are to be believed, the perfect couple might be keeping their perfect balance with boy-girl twins.

Countdown to Father's Day 2008 (T-02): Top TV Dads

Friday, June 13th, 2008

As we countdown to Father’s Day (T-02 days) – here’s our continuing look at some of TV’s favorite fathers: From the 1950s cardigan-wearing, “Father Knows Best” types to the 21st century guys juggling dysfunctional families and questionable careers.

TV’s Top Dads (in chronological order)

Homer Simpson (1990’s/2000’s)
As a less-than-perfect dad, Homer Simpson has cornered the market on underachieving. As The Simpsons’s (1989-present) animated patriarch, Homer personifies bumbling ineptitude in everything he does – from his botched attempts at raising his three kids to his rather ironic job as safety inspector at the local nuclear plant. The longest run show on TV, with characters that have never aged, The Simpsons offers America a satirical, politically incorrect family and one of the most enduring iconic cultural references.

Check back each day for another TV dad (or you can cheat and check out all our TV dads here).
