10+ Single Dads In Hollywood Who Are Absolutely Killing It

Hollywood is full of incredible men.

You have ones who give back to charity and ones who make time for their fans no matter what.

There are also a lot of single dads in Hollywood. Some ended up this way from divorce, others sadly lost their partners, and some even chose to adopt.

Here are 10+ single dads in Hollywood who are absolutely killing it.

1. John Travolta

The Grease actor found himself as a single dad when his beloved wife, Kelly Preston, sadly passed away in 2020 after a private battle with breast cancer.

He's now the only parent to their three children.

2. Channing Tatum

While his split from Jenna Dewan has been devastating, we've loved seeing the actor adapt to his new role as a single dad.

Here he is embracing his "inner child" with their daughter, Everly. Soo cute!

3. Ryan Phillippe

The Cruel Intentions star has two children, Ava and Deacon, with his ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon.

"You have to get to that point as a divorced parent, as any parent, where you're not putting yourself first," Phillippe told EW about fatherhood.

4. Louis Tomlinson

"I didn't think I'd be having a kid at this age, but it is incredible," the former One Direction crooner told Tyra Banks about welcoming a child with his ex, Briana Jungwirth.

He added that he's looking forward to coaching Freddie in football. Such a dad thing to say!

5. Norman Reedus

The Walking Dead star had a son called Mingus with model Helena Christensen. After they split up, he was thrown into the scary world of single fatherhood.

“Have you ever sat in a parent-teacher meeting with a bunch of moms and you?” he asked Elle in 2013. “That’s terrifying.”

Since he recently welcomed a daughter with Diane Kruger in 2018, he's been able to share what he knows.

“[Reedus] teaches me a lot [about parenting], because he’s done it before,” Kruger told PORTER Edit in 2019.

“There’s definitely something to be said for being with someone who is doing it for the second time.”

6. Al Pacino

Since he grew up with divorced parents, the actor didn't want his kids to grow up with an absentee father.

"I wanted to be responsible to them, so I divide my time between two coasts,” he told The Guardian in 2015.

7. Orlando Bloom

"We have a child. Let’s [do] whatever it takes,’ ” the Lord of the Rings alum told Howard Stern about raising his son, Flynn, alongside ex Miranda Kerr.

Now, he's a father of two after welcoming a daughter with fianceé, Katy Perry.

8. Pierce Brosnan

The James Bond actor was thrust into single fatherhood after his wife Cassandra died of ovarian cancer, leaving him with three kids to raise alone.

What an amazing man! He did this even though Sean was his only biological child.

Charlotte and Christopher were children from Cassandra's previous relationship.

"To begin with I was Pierce, then I was Daddy Pierce, and then I just became Dad. Charlotte and Chris have just been amazing in my life," he said, as reported by The Sun.

9. Liam Neeson

The Taken star was forced to adapt to single parenting after his wife, Natasha Richardson, was tragically killed in a tragic ski accident.

“It’s an ongoing joy being a dad. It’s always a joy but it’s a joyful worry," he told the Daily Mail.

10. Andy Cohen

As a gay man, the Bravo personality thought that fatherhood was never in the cards for him.

But everything changed when he welcomed his son, Benjamin Allen, via surrogate in 2018. "It's amazing, he's a little lovebug,' he told Seth Meyers in 2018.

11. Tom Cruise

Say what you will about Tom Cruise, but no one can deny that he's an amazing father!

When he was married to Nicole Kidman, they adopted two children. This was a girl named Isabella Jane and a boy named Connor Anthony.

But since their divorce, Nicole hasn't had much involvement in the kids' lives.

She even proved how close they are to dad when Nicole confirmed that the kids are practicing Scientologists just like Tom.

12. Chris Pratt

Since Chris had a rough relationship with his own father, he puts in extra effort to bond with his son, Jack, with his ex, Anna Faris.

This includes fishing together, riding bikes, and attending basketball games.

13. Brad Pitt

The actor has been granted joint custody of the six children he had with Angelina Jolie.

Since then, he's adjusted to a new normal. This includes doing "simple things like cook or watch movies," a source told Us Weekly.

14. Christiano Ronaldo

In addition to being a soccer superstar, he's also a father of four.

He clearly loves all of his kids equally, as he loves to share lots of pics of all of them on his social media. And we love to see it!

15. Johnny Depp

While Johnny and his ex Vanessa Paradis were never married, they did welcome two children together: Jack and Lily-Rose.

Since then, he's been such a proud dad. "It's all kinds of these profound things crashing on you when your child arrives into the world," he once told Cinema. "It's like you've met your reason to live."
