Dads across the globe were feted on Sunday with Father's Day cards, perhaps some breakfast in bed or a new tie and, of course, lots of love. Celebrities were no different, as social media tributes went out to dads who helped them get where they were, stood by their sides and gave them their love.
From Justin Timberlake, to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, to Madonna and Miley Cyrus, celebrities celebrated Father's Day in their own special ways.
Timberlake took time to celebrate his son, Silas, and shared rare photos of him.
"The last 3 years of my life have brought more joy than I could ever imagine. Being a father is such a trip... an amazing discovery every day. My son: it is my honor to be your Daddy. You make me feel a love that I didn't know existed," Timberlake wrote on Instagram. "I will ALWAYS be there... to pick you up when you fall, to lift you up when you are ready to soar, and to remind you that your humility will be your guide through this thing called life. And to all the Dads out there: Keep on keeping on! Our children are watching and listening more than we know! I'm celebrating you all today! Happy Father's Day! Cheers! 🍻."
Dwayne Johnson, whose third daughter was just born in April, paid tribute to his father in a throwback Instagram pic that showed the elder Johnson looking pretty Rock-like himself. Calling him a "hardly ever smiling OG bad ass," Johnson wrote that he learned about true love from his father -- even if it was tough.
"Years later as a man and father of three girls, I know that tough love, is a helluva lot better than no love at all," he wrote. "I’ll take it. It’s made me who I am today. Grateful to the original Rock."
Here are just some of the celebrity Father's Day tributes warming up hearts today:

"Father’s Day is coming and since Sunday will be all about my Dad, I used Amazon Alexa to test my Dad’s knowledge of his favorite son today - me! See link in bio! #ad"
Today has an entirely different meaning to me than I did when I first became a father to Tashi and then my Ella Bella. It’s an incredible responsibility, and one I have always treasured. But as I grow older and proudly watch them doing the same, not only are my kids my pride and joy and number one priority - now they also motivate me. Every day, Tashi and Ella make me a better dad and a better person. Being a father is the greatest job in the world, more than any career I could have dreamed of as a kid. To all the fathers out there, never stop trying to be the best. I don’t. #HappyFathersDay
