These five famous fathers have no problem sharing their love (and fears) for their little ones. With Father's Day quickly approaching, we're taking you down memory lane, flashing back to some of the most awesome quotes about fatherhood from our favorite A-list fathers.
These are the top 5 best quotes we found straight from celebrity daddies about the little moments that make fatherhood amazing... in no specific order. (Hey, it was hard enough to narrow it down to just 5!)
1. Neil Patrick Harris & David Burkta
Ok, so we cheated a little on this first one and picked two awesome celebrity dads, who happen to be engaged to one another! When deciding what they wanted their twins, Gideon and Harper, to refer to them as, the How I Met Your Mother star said: "This is a sore subject, because we are two gentleman with children, and so we didn't know what to call ourselves. 'Daddy One' and 'Daddy Two' sound kind of strange... So David's 'daddy' and I'm 'poppa,' just to differentiate." These two are just too adorable!

2. Bruce Jenner
We melted when we saw Bruce Jenner cry while giving a speech at his stepdaughter Khloe Kardashian's wedding. With ten kids who have all turned out to be successful (and with putting up with Kris Jenner nonstop), Bruce has got to be a great guy! He once joked: "I had been carpooling kids for 33 years. My last Escalade, I had 170,000 miles on it. Those were carpool miles." He recalls the first day his girls drove off to school, he ran out the door and watched. "I'm standing on the sidewalk with my sad look, waving at them. They waved back, saying, 'We love you, Daddy, we love you!'" And we know they still do.
Even though we haven't seen Jay around the city with little Blue Ivy, we know how amazing he treats Beyonce. So, we're banking that he's going to be awesome at being a daddy (and spoiling his little Blue Ivy). Recently, the new dad said: "I imagine I'll take things I learned from my mom and things I've learned from raising my nephews and apply that. Then at the end of the day, I just know I'll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever. Everyone imagines they'll be a great dad until their (kids are) teenagers. (They say), 'Get away from me, Dad. You're embarrassing me.'" Read More: Beyonce & Jay-Z Introduce Baby Blue Ivy Carter With Photos!
4. Tom Cruise
Suri Cruise may get her amazing fashion from her mommy Katie Holmes, but dad Tom Cruise is making her into a star at four! "I'll put Suri on a swing and tell her stories when I'm working on a script," he says. "I'll start with the beginning of the movie and take her through the story beat by beat. Of course, I make it age-appropriate. She's four years old. But she asks all the right questions: Why does that happen? Those are the bad guys? You're the good guy, right?" Yes Suri, he's the good guy most of the time. Read More: 8 Celebrity Dads Who Rock PHOTOS
5. James Van Der Beek
While you may have laughed when seeing him fake cry repeatedly on Dawson's Creek, James Van Der Beek admits he really did cry when his wife, Kimberly was in labor with their second child, son Joshua. He Tweeted on that day: "Had my first son this morning... well, actually, my wife had him. I just caught him. Wow. Heart expanding way faster than my brain... If you could bottle up and distribute this feeling, I swear there'd be no more war. #fatherhood." Aww, Dawson! He makes us crack up on Don't Trust The B In Apt. 23, but the actor definitely gets sappy when talking about his most important role in life.
Happy Father's Day!
