9 Celebrity Dads Who Raised Their Kids Alone

It is not uncommon to find single moms nowadays, raising their kids and planning a life on their own. Finding single dads doing homely tasks is rare to find. Nonetheless, it isn’t unheard of that men, especially celebrities who mostly busy, take full responsibility of catering for their children and are more than capable of raising good kids.

I’ve come up with a list of celebrity dads who, due to various circumstances, raised their kids alone. While some were as a result of a breakup or divorce, others decided to cater to their kids themselves.

1. Liam Neeson

Liam Neeson

Liam’s wife, Natasha Richardson died some days after hitting her head while skiing at a ski resort. This happened ten years ago, leaving two children behind. Daniel and Michael, ages 12 and 13 respectively, had to grow without their mother and with their father to everything to them.

It wasn’t easy for the family to get over the loss, but Liam managed to play his fatherly role that one wouldn’t ever believe there was no motherly help. He dedicated his life to his children, and he never remarried.

2. Pierce Brosnan

Pierce adopted Cassandra Harris 2 kids after his marriage to her, Charlotte and Chris, age 9 and 8. They had a son three years later, Sean, followed by a fatal illness. Cassandra lost the battle to cancer, leaving the author to raise all three kids on his own.

He also made it clear he wasn’t ready to remarry, however, in 1994, Pierce met Keely Shayne, a prolific journalist, who he later married in 2001. They have two sons together, Dylan and Paris, making them a total of 5 children.

3. Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage

Weston, Nicolas Cage’s son, was born in 1990, but he wasn’t officially married to his Weston’s mom.

He, nevertheless, was required to provide his baby momma with a house in Hollywood if he had the right to keep and raise his child alone. Cage also had another child in 2005. Weston is 28 years old, and he’s doing well as a musician. He is also testing his talents with acting.

4. George Lucas

George Lucas

Our very own George Lucas, the maker of the legendary Star Wars saga, had been raising three adopted kids for years now. He adopted Amanda, Katie and Jet and raised all three until 2013 when he got married.

He tied the knot with the chairwoman of DreamWorks Animation, and president of Ariel Investments, Mellody Hobson and they both have a daughter together. You can catch a glimpse of them in action in small parts of “Star Wars”.

5. Al Pacino

Al is a proud father of 3, although he hasn’t been married officially. Julie, his eldest daughter, was born in 1989. The actress, Beverly D’Angelo, gave birth to twins in 2001 – Anton and Olivia.

Well, the couple had to call it quits several years after, but Al and Beverly made sure they both have custody of the kids. The children spend an equal amount of time with both their dad and mom. Al even tries to schedule his time at work so he could spend more time with his babies.

6. Colin Farrell

Colin is a strong father of 2 boys James and Henry, 16 and ten years old. James’s mom is the well-known model Kim Bordenave, but she and Farrell’s affair didn’t last long enough for them to tie the knot. But he promised to provide for his little best man for life.

Again, in 2009, Farrell is blessed with a second child, Henry. Henry’s mother is a Polish actress, but like Kim, James’s mother, Farrell ended his relationship with her, but this time, very quickly.

7. Lenny Kravitz

Lenny Kravitz

Lenny started raising his daughter Zoë alone after his divorce. He lives with his spouse Lisa Bonet for three years. Both parents of Zoë had equal rights to raising their daughter.

However, Zoë moved to stay with her father full time when she turned 11. Today miss Kravitz is a phenomenal actress and a beautiful model. Both father and daughter often grace social events with their appearance together.

8. Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano is a father of many children who had his first child through a surrogate mother in 2010. He’s also known as Cristiano, and like his father, he is a remarkable athlete. Cristiano yet again became a father of twin in 2017: Eva and Mateo, a girl and a boy.

He’s planning to be married to Georgina Rodriguez who recently had a daughter -Alana Martina- together.
