It was all a bit lovely on social media yesterday, with heartwarming Father’s Day tributes rolling in from across the pop culture world – kicked off by Lena Dunham, who, unable to contain her excitement, posted her Instagram photo of dad Carroll Dunham the day before.
Former model Iman, who was married to the late David Bowie, yesterday tweeted a gorgeous photo of Bowie with their daughter Alexandria (whose nickname is Lexi). Then there was The Beckhams, Ariana Grande, Ryan Reynolds, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Lauren Laverne and many more raising a toast to their dads. Here are some of the sweetest.

I love my father too much to wait until tomorrow to say it. He is my confidante and protector. He is funny and kind, reveres women and babies, books and art, architecture and sweet potatoes. Just don’t ever try and touch his glasses. Thank you Papa Photo by @roeethridge

Outings with Dad usually consisted of Rockets Games (where I asked if every single player was Michael Jordan) Bomb ass concerts (like Janet Jackson) and Record Stores like Cactus Music and Sound Waves ( Dad liked Donald Byrd a lot). When my parents first met, my mom was fooling with his extensive record collection at a house party he had, and he was like ..haha. So grateful that the origin of my existence involved music, and for all of the wonderful music memories my dad involved in my life.
