As we cheer on our favorite celebrities, we tend to forget they’re human too.And as humans, they also enjoy the same things we enjoy like being in a family, having kids, or being a parent. As such, they also celebrate the things we celebrate.Just recently, a celebrity father-daughter duo made the newsstands just in time for Father’s Day.
It was a heartwarming moment that left not only the father but also most of us in tears.Kate Hudson joined daughters around the world to celebrate Father’s Day.She took her appreciation to Instagram where she posted an old photo of her and her dad, Kurt Russell. The actress, now 43, can be seen in the photo hugging Russell as they share a father-daughter moment.
“Fun, adventurous, passionate, determined, honest, devoted, amazing father and the best head of hair in Los Angeles! Lucky us! Love you Pa! Happy Fathers Day,” she said in the caption.
Russell doesn’t have Instagram so his wife, Goldie Hawn, replied to the post on his behalf.
“Honey, I showed this to daddy. Here’s his message,” Hawn said, “Birdie, mommy just showed me this picture, this perfect Father’s Day present. I’ve never seen it before. Wow.. it’s a killer.”
“Lotta water under the bridge.. it’s kinda hard to see it though cause all the water seems to somehow found its way into my eyes..” Russell continued, “thanks for making me the luckiest father in the world sweetheart. I love you, Pa.”
Hudson is Russell’s stepdaughter but they’ve always kept a close relationship.
Hudson’s parents, actress-producer Goldie Hawn and musician Bill Hudson, divorced when she was just 18 months old. She was then raised by Hawn and Russell together.
Hudson has been a mainstay in rom-com movies where she starred in movies like How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days, Bride Wars, and My Best Friend’s Girl.
Meanwhile, her father starred in the cult-classic Big Trouble Little China and the sci-fi horror classic The Thing. His career is still going strong with his recent casting in Guardians of the Galaxy and The Hateful Eight.
Hawn and Russell are one of Hollywood’s most enduring couples.
They have been together for almost 40 years. Hawn also posted her own appreciation for her partner and veteran actor on her Instagram account.
“How can I explain the gratitude and love I feel for the greatest father who has given us all so much in this life?” she said in the post.
Celebrity friends also chimed in with their reactions to Hudson’s post.
Drew Barrymore who starred in Charlie’s Angels and 50 First Dates said, “Wow this one almost hurts it’s so sweet.”
Rachel Zoe also left a string of heart emojis just like Liv Tyler, who starred in Armageddon and The Lord of the Rings. Tyler is also a celebrity daughter. Her dad is Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler.
This is not the first time Hudson showed his love for her father.
On his birthday, Hudson shared another throwback photo of them as a family. She shared Russell’s impact on her life and how different life would’ve been without him.
“He gave me the gift of confidence instilling a knowingness in me that I deserved everything I worked for and I knew that he’d always have my back in whatever challenges may lay ahead.” She said in her post.
Together with all the loving dads, we hope you enjoyed Father’s Day, Kurt!
