Father’s Day is a special time to remind your dad, stepfather, husband, and the other special men in your family what a wonderful father they are. People post thoughtful messages to their father all over Facebook, Instagram and other favorite social media sites, thanking them for the positive influence they’ve had on their lives, and are usually followed up with other updates of what they’re up to, like kayaking, playing in the sand, having a barbeque or relaxing while watching a ball game. It’s a day to be thankful for and one to make more memories with your Dad.
In particular, celebrities love showing off adorable Father’s Day photos on social media of themselves with their kids, or a picture of them with their dad. It was fun keeping up with the latest photos that kept showing up on Instagram on Father’s Day. In fact, with so many of them popping up on the Instagram feed, it was quite hard keeping track of all the cuteness! Check out some of the most adorable Father’s Day photos that celebs shared with the world this year.
1. Justin Timberlake "Flexin" with Son Silas
Justin Timberlake made all of his fans go "Aw!" with this too-cute-for-words photo of him and his two-month-old son Silas. He said he was "Flexin on Father’s Day" and it’s a known fact that Silas is going to be just as cute as his dad one day! A few months ago, when Silas was just a few weeks old, Justin posted another sweet picture of Silas and his wife Jessica Biel. Just precious!
2. Reese Witherspoon's Husband Jim Toth and Son
Reese Witherspoon gave us a glimpse into her life with a stunning sunset photo of her husband Jim Toth (whom she fondly calls JT) and their little boy Tennessee James Toth who was born in 2012. Considering Reese went through a difficult divorce with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe not too long ago, it’s nice seeing her enjoy a happy marriage and celebrate how great of a dad her hubby JT is.
3. Lea Michele Enjoying Brunch with Her Dad

Drew’s girls Olive and Frankie are certainly cute, and they love ice cream, too, which is such a fun way to enjoy the holiday.
