Jennifer Lopez, Ivanka Trump and Kim Kardashian among stars to post Father's Day tributes

Father's Day is for all dads — even those who are exes, step-parents or no longer with us.

Dozens of celebrities marked the occasion on Instagram, posting tributes to the great guys in and out of their lives. Jennifer Lopez created two separate photo galleries, one honoring ex-husband Marc Anthony and the other celebrating fiancé Alex Rodriguez. Some of the sweet photos even show Anthony and Rodriguez together, and fans were quick to praise the singer for showing respect to both men.

"Emme and Max love you soooo much!! Thank you for these two beautiful coconuts!!!" Lopez wrote to Anthony before penning a more extensive note to Rodriguez: "How lucky are we to have you in our lives. Not only do you make us all laugh everyday, you help us to be our best selves with a loving gentle hand."

Ivanka Trump shared a photo of her husband, Jared Kushner, walking the White House halls alongside President Donald Trump, calling them both "incredible dads."

This is the best of 100 pictures we have tried to take today and let’s be honest, it’s not great. But being a dad is! #happyfathersday
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY. We love you so much, you always put your family first, me and the girls are so lucky to have you. 🖤👨‍👩‍👧‍👧🖤 To all the dads in my life thank you for being amazing father figures!
For me, being a father means having that quiet little voice inside of you that says “Be a better man,” get louder and more consistent... to the point where you can’t really remember where that voice ends and where you begin. It means being tired beyond what is probably healthy, and patient beyond what you previously thought possible. And even though you know you’re far from perfect... being a father also comes with an unshakable awareness that all your actions have consequences - context that reaches far beyond your own self-interest. It’s scary to feel that interconnected with the rest of the world - especially with your heart now walking around outside your body - because it demands more personal responsibility... but it will make you a better man. Of at least that I’m sure. #HappyFathersDay to all the imperfect dads out there, trying their best and learning on the job.👊#fatherhood
‪Pretty grateful for this guy. Happy Father’s Day! ‬
Happy Baba’s day to @afshinashahidi ❣️you’ve given me everything from my first email address at 7 ( which is still my email lol) to my eclectic taste in music (spanning from J cole to Fiddler on the Roof), an unprecedented empathy and want to do for others with no expectation of anything in return, the ability to travel the word, and a love for the power of the creative world ❤️ Love you!
Happy Father’s Day to the best there is! @glzdovr this guy never missed a single taping of BBT and still comes to cheer me on at horse shows whenever he can. One of a kind! 💯💙
Anyone that knows my husband Eric would agree that he is hands down the best Father in the world. Happy Father’s Day baby! Thank you for always putting love first. This family of 5 loves you with all of our hearts 💚💚💚💚💚
My dad still holds me like this. Love you dad! #HappyFathersDay
