From first-time, gushing dads to veterans, celebrity dads and their families recognized Father's Day this weekend with a host of sweet social media posts.

Among the new fathers were Prince Harry and "Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen.

Among the more seasoned fathers honored were Golden State Warrior Stephen Curry, actor Neil Patrick Harris, Pink's husband, Carey Hart, and Carrie Underwood's spouse, Mike Fisher. Tom Hanks son, Colin Hanks, made us snicker with his one-of-a-kind tribute.

We read touching tributes, wise words and we got an eyeful of celeb photos.

"And I need to ask: If a woman is willing to provide the gift of life to a man like me, or a couple struggling with infertility, why should the government be able to tell her what she can do with her body? It's past time to end NY's ban on surrogacy & pass the Child-Parent Security Act."

"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," he wrote. "...being a father also comes with an unshakable awareness that all your actions have consequences - context that reaches far beyond your own self-interest."
