Dads are so important in a little girl's life. Moms are important to their children, but fathers have a significant impact on their daughters. Seeing dads be absolutely smitten with their little ones is the most heartwarming thing ever, and that's the case for so many of our favorite celebrities.

No matter how tough they seem on the exterior, these guys turn to mush when they're around their daughters. And who can blame them? Children can destroy every armor you may have with just one look. Alex Rodríguez has rebranded himself for not just being one of the most famous Yankees players to ever live, but now he's also known as Ella and Natasha's dad--and he's so darn proud of that role!

These famous dads go to great lengths to make their girls smile, even if it means looking a little silly. Remember when Marc Anthony let his daughter, Emme, paint his nails? Or when Enrique Iglesias made a fool of himself just to hear his baby Lucy laugh? That's what fatherhood does to a man and it's the sweetest thing in the world. 

It is through their fathers' love that these girls will learn what unconditional love and protection are supposed to look like, so a great father is always someone worth admiring. Take a look at some of our favorite famous dads who share really special and strong bonds with their little girls.
