Besides paying tribute to his own “superhero” of a dad, Romeo also gave himself a bit of Father’s Day love as he is also a papa himself - to his fur-kid Tigger, that is.

Thanks to their Europe trip, Yixi and Yixin had plenty of picturesque shots with their papa Edmund Chen to mark Father’s Day with.

“Thank you for teaching me how to appreciate the smallest things in the world, for sharing your philosophies in life and your great love for our family!” wrote Yixi, while his sister expressed her gratitude to Edmund for “constantly broadening our horizons & for loving us deeper than the seas, higher than the mountains (sic)”.

Mum Xiang Yun, who only recently joined them on the holiday, also got in on the action, but she shared an older - but no less lovely - photograph of the family instead.

We reckon even the coldest of hearts were warmed by the sight of Momo’s face. That is the expression of a child who is very, very loved at home indeed. Then again, with a dad like Alfred Sim, whom Kewei thanked for “whipping up such amazing meals for Momo all the time”, we shouldn’t be surprised.

Candyce hailed her husband Ang Junyang as “the pillar of support” for herself and “Baby Boss” (a.k.a. their daughter Azalea), and thanked him for “working so hard to provide for the family to make sure [they] get the best”.

Junyang also shared an adorable photo of Azalea showing off a handmade card she had put together at school. Love the pun.

Most kids laugh or cringe when looking at old photos or videos of their fathers, but not Joel, who proudly shared several screenshots of Zhu Houren from 80s drama Mystery to mark Father’s Day. To be fair, Houren has always looked mighty cool.

In case anyone’s wondering, Becks is the little girl on the bike (she is the middle child, so the baby would be her younger sister). Wishing her very cool-looking pops (seriously, check out that pose) a Happy Father’s Day, she wrote, “To my Daddy — my hero, strength and inspiration amongst many other wonderful things, thank you for loving us with all your heart and being (sic)”.

Besides wishing all the hard-working dads out there Happy Father’s Day, the singer also asked for prayers that he become a papa himself soon as well. All the best, Taufik!

Not only was June 16 Father’s Day, it was also Kate’s husband Andie Chen’s 34th birthday and their daughter Avery’s 3rd birthday (yes, they were born on the same date). The montage of photos she put together definitely put a smile on our faces.

As a Liverpool fan, it’s no surprise that Ben would receive a digital card (from Chew Chor Meng, by the way) that reflects his favourite football team. It also looks like he went out for a delicious meal with his family. We wonder if he enjoyed that “bucket of beer” he mentioned in his caption as well.

With that focused expression on the former actress’s husband David Lim’s face, you’d think he was handling some complicated wiring or something, but the truth is, he’s fixing his daughter Brooklyn’s pink and purple hair clips. We love the video of him unabashedly skipping around with his little princess too.

We see where Denise gets her sense of style from. How can you not love a man who wears a bold, brightly coloured floral print to a fancy restaurant?

The actress-entrepreneur penned long, lovely tributes to the two important dads in her life: her own father Mervin, as well as the father of her super-cute son Marc, Roy Fong.

To her dad, she wrote, “To a papa who’s a fun loving, awesomely fashionable, wise, and a kind role model to us and now the gong gong who Marckie adores especially cos of papa’s signature moustache (sic)”, and to Roy, “There’s one thing better than you being my husband, the one who is the dada to all our kids (sic)”. Awww…

We’re not sure if we want to know why Jean got her dad a card that says “Happy Farter’s Day”. In any case, we’ll settle with cooing over that old photo of the Class 95 DJ getting fed by her farte- we mean, father on her first birthday.

“You only have one dad, cherish every moment with them”, Belinda reminded everyone. And sharing a glass of bubbly (or beer, if her emojis are any indication) is certainly a good way to do it.

Look who’s celebrating Father’s Day as a daddy himself for the very first time! “Thank you for coming into my life and letting me love and protect you!” the young actor wrote in his caption, a sweet message that is dedicated to his son, nicknamed “Xiao Mumu”.

The 987FM DJ spent Father’s Day digging up old photos of herself and her folks, and was reminded of “how much cooler [her] dad was than [she is] when he was young”. Awww, give yourself some credit, Sonia, we think you definitely inherited some of that coolness.

With Diana’s hubby James Lye’s 50th(!) birthday falling today (June 17), it was a double celebration for this very good-looking family over the weekend. Happy birthday, James!

We appreciate how Peifen opted to shy away from only showing the glamorous side of fatherhood with this hilarious but adorable shot of her hubby getting a face full of baby hands, courtesy of their little boy Luke, who seems to be enjoying the gorgeous autumn view too much to notice what he’s doing.

Well this is an unusual Father’s Day treat. According to Cavin, his dad always says that his barber skills are better than his usual barbershop guy’s, so of course, how could Cavin resist showing off said skills? And we must say, the result is really not bad.

Sharing what he called “a rare photo” of himself and his siblings “joining forces in the kitchen”, the singer praised his dad for the “amazing dinners” he used to make for them, and credited that for inspiring his own love for cooking. “So there really was no better way to celebrate father's day for an amazing father, by giving him what he so lovingly gave us (sic)”, he wrote. Yum!

The siblings’ respective Father’s Day wishes for their papa Zheng Ge Ping had simple captions, but a hilarious photo and video. While Calvert pretended to land an uppercut on his old man, his sister showed herself enduring an agonising ankle massage that had her writhing around and eventually beating Ge Ping up with a pillow. Ah, what a lovely family.

Ge Ping himself also paid tribute to his late dad, writing, “I know u are happy & enjoying eternity with The Lord. But I still miss u very much Pa (sic)”. He also shared some of the things he learned from his father, such as striving to provide the best for his family, bearing hardships without complaint, and being willing to give up his life to protect his country and loved ones.

For people like Felicia, whose dads are no longer with them (hers passed away 18 years ago), Father’s Day can be a bit of a poignant occasion, so she remembered to send some love their way as well, writing, “May you also feel the love and warmth of our Heavenly Father and know that you are not alone.”

She also shared this picture of herself saying that it reminded her a lot of her dad, whom she’s been told she resembles.

Also remembering his own late dad, who passed away seven years ago, was Elvin. “In your semblance, in your memory. It’s been seven years, happy father’s day (sic)”, he wrote.

Nope, we did not include this photo by mistake. Ever since Lin Meijiao divorced former actor Huang Yiliang, she’s been single-handedly raising their daughter Chantalle, so it only makes sense that she would be considered a mother and a father in one to her little girl, who also dubbed her “the one who did it all”.
