This Father's Day, many celebrities are being celebrated for the first time after welcoming children into the world this year.
It has been a busy year for celebrity couples. Many young stars have paired off and started families, while several older celebrities have finally settled down and had their first kids. Either way, it's a strange thing to go from celebrating other dads to being celebrated, and on Sunday, many celebrities did just that.
Of course there are plenty of celebrity fathers who keep their personal lives private, so we haven't seen how they spent their special day of the year. It's not uncommon for Father's Day to be less of an event than Mother's Day is, as many dads dislike being the center of attention and are always putting their kids first. There were undoubtedly quite a few quiet Father's Day gatherings around the country where action movies were watched, beer was drank, and fish were caught.
Then there are the celebrity dads who are loud and proud on social media. More than a few stars got online on Sunday to show off their babies and brag about how adorable and charming they are. After looking at their pictures, you have to wonder — who can blame them?
Here's a look at some of the celebrity dads celebrating their first Father's Day.

John Stamos just had his first child ever, a son named Billy, this past April. He has not been shy about sharing the emotional journey fatherhood is shaping up to be for him.
"From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son," he wrote on Instagram when Billy was born. "Welcome Billy Stamos (named after my father) #NotJustanUncleAnymore #Overjoyed."
Part of Jordan Peele's massively successful year in 2017 included welcoming his first son, Beaumont Gino Peele, into the world. Peele just missed last Father's Day when his baby was born on July 1, so this will be his first one.
So far, the only glimpse fans have gotten of Beaumont has come in the corner of a picture posted by Peele's wife, Chelsea Peretti.
