Shanan πŸ’™ an amazing man who has chosen to love my kids like his own. He would do anything for us and he works so bloody hard. He is our absolute rock and we are all so lucky to have him ❀

My Dad is the best! He came into my life, when I was 13, and from then he has been a shining light πŸ’‘ he has taught me so many valuable lifelong skills, while being an incredible dad and friend!! From teaching me to drive, moving me from place to place, from stresses and sadness to excitement and being proud, Dad has been there through it all ❀️

This guy always down to create those Dad memories like “dogggggpiiiilllllleeee”. Couldn’t love this guy more, works his πŸ‘ off for his family πŸ₯°

Well we’re pretty lucky in our house too . We’ve got a pretty good Dad here . Patient AF, caring as ever , the fun one too , we couldn’t have wished for a better one .. but not only have the kids got him … my babies are lucky to have their grandad nearby too .. who they would ditch us in a heartbeat to go be with …. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Miles says "I love my daddy because he plays with me; he makes me laugh; he taught me how to ride my bike; he goes on adventures with me; he always cuddles me; he builds Lego with me; he showed me how to make meatballs; he does "boys' stuff" with me (aka working in the garage); he reads to me and he always kisses me goodnight." πŸ’™

Davin Welsh is my nomination! With a blended family of 6 children he has really shown me what an amazing dad looks like for not only his own birth children but taken on mine like his own too ❀ with all the very hard challenges and baggage a big blended family comes with, he hasn't just been an amazing male role model, but an incredible partner to support me through it all! Not to mention all the normal day activities that is just all part of parenthood! An absolute no.1 dad in my eyes and all his kids that love him to bits ❀

I love my dad because he chose to be my dad when he didn't have to! No matter what he has always been there for me, even when we weren't speaking as much he always let me know he was there when I was ready to reach out <3 Any time I call he picks up and any time I fall he picks me up <3 He has made his home my home, and he does his best as a single dad with my two little sisters. As I have grown I have also seen him grow, and I have seen my sisters grow under his guidance. I appreciate every little gesture, especially the iced coffees he brings me in the morning when I come stay <3 A message from Kita bear: Even though times get tough I love you and you deserve the world <3 A message from Trinity Brown- thank you for always supporting me, through everything and being my best friend. You will forever be some I look up too and I love you so much! Happy fathers day Crawford Brown

Stepping up before being a dad can be the hardest thing to do and only some (the best) stay to stick it out. Adam Collier This day has always been farther's day in our house but this time it's for real! Happy first father's day for Sunday. Watching you with the kids make my heart smile 😻 🍻 here's to many more! Farting father's day's πŸ’™πŸ˜‚

My dad Pricey, he’s pretty damn awesome and looked after his baby girl in a real shite time of need in my life ♥️πŸ₯°♥️

Just have to nominate Greg Roche who has just remembered tomorrow is our wedding anniversary lol..🍰πŸ₯‚ This incredible silent man fell in love with an 10 year old skater boy and a 4yr old princess, before me, then took us all on and moved us to his home New Zealand, where is has loved us unconditionally ever since..

I love my Dad because he's always here for me when I need him most. He's playful with me. After a big day at work I run out to his car and then he's ready to play. I ❀ my Dad. From Marlie

Dean Spyve is an amazing Dad, from cooking us dinner every night to playing lego and soccer with Cody, to sleeping with Maddie when she was sick even though she made you sick too. We love and appreciate you always. β™‘β™‘β™‘

AJ Goble is the biggest pain in the butt but is a pretty sweet dad. He’s always up to play ( with our kid and everyone else’s) and has adjusted well to the 5/6am wake ups we now have as a family. For a man who used to sleep in most days, he’s up making “Nutella toast” before Matthew can even say “it’s ready….?”. You’re a good man AJ. Maybe you’ll win this prize…. Since we have not been organised this year for lockdown Father’s Day πŸ₯ΊπŸ’™

My dad is the best dad ever - travelled the country/world watching any of his 3 girls playing or reffing hockey. He has helped all 3 of us in some way with building or renovating our homes. He would do anything for us without question

Daddy of 5 girls (16,13,7,2x5wks) he is our rock, our safe place, our midnight cuddles and bottles, our monkey business, our hunter and gather and massive love. Our world 🌎

My Dad, My girls Granga is amazing! He’s always buying, making or fixing something for the girls. If we need him for something he’s there with a drop of a hat. Dad is always working and if he’s not he’s busy doing ‘something’ for his ‘girls’ ❀️

Mark Commins "because he is the best and buys me stuff" Ella. "because he let's us live in this house and he loves us" Charlotte

David Watts ! We think you’re pretty amazing! Couldn’t have picked a better partner for this crazy parenting ride πŸ˜‚

I'd like to nominate my daddy Glen Hitchman. He's n awesome dad, and amazing poppa too

Kalib Drake is a pretty great dad.

Edgar nominates Dale Simpson for always taking him on river adventures 🏞

Hi there, this is an awesone idea, good on you

Shane Ayrton! Nothing is ever a problem for Horace xx

My girls want to nominate their Daddy β€οΈβ€οΈπŸ’™ James-peter Coburn I asked why, simple answer from Ayla, because I love my Daddy xx short simple and to the point ❀️🀣πŸ₯°

Roger Walton is a Vandy quality dad!
