A father doesn't have to be blood-related to a child. All he has to do is love unconditionally and truly, and that's what many celeb men are doing quite spectacularly. These guys may be stepdads, but they love - and are loved - very deeply.
Being a father is about more than helping to create a child. It's about support, love and unconditional acceptance - and there are many male celebs who are doing this daily.
Stepdads fill the roles of fathers who may be absent for whatever reason, and often they are loved just as much as the biological dad - if not more.
For whatever reason, these celebs are being dads for the children of their lovely ladies, and they are nailing it.
Men like Shona Ferguson, Chad da Don and Riky Rick are proving that making a child is not the same as raising a child.
Briefly.co.za gathered some snaps of these men in action and it's clear they're not only being wonderful stepdads, but they're also enjoying it.
Riky Rick is often giving us the sweetest #daddygoals:
