The biggest celebrity news of the weekend was that Jay Z became a father again, but all dads were celebrated on Sunday for Father’s Day. See how the stars marked the occasion and paid tribute to the men in their lives.

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel paid tribute to Silas’s dad (aka Justin Timberlake). “To all the dads out there, including mine, who selflessly give their time and love to their families, I appreciate and salute you,” wrote The Sinner actress. “And to my beloved husband, my adventure companion, my road dog, who works tirelessly for THIS family and gives of himself energetically and spiritually every day, I am eternally grateful for you and your love.
As Silas likes to say, ‘You are so much cool.’ I love you to the moon and back.” (Photo: Jessica Biel via Instagram)

Michelle Obama

‪”Happy #FathersDay @BarackObama,” wrote Michelle. “Our daughters may be older and taller now, but they’ll always be your little girls. We love you.‬” The former president later shared the photo on Twitter, writing, “Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be Sasha and Malia’s dad.” (Photo: Michelle Obama via Instagram)

Ivanka Trump

In addition to giving the 45th president a shout-out, Ivanka Trump shared a photo of her own family with Jared Kushner. “Happy Father’s Day to my amazing husband — Arabella, Joseph and Theodore’s sweet dad,” she wrote. “Thank you, Jared, for loving, encouraging, and teaching them (and me!) everyday. We love you very much!” (Photo: Ivanka Trump via Instagram)

Gina Rodriguez

Where did Gina Rodriguez get her smile? No idea. None at all. “You are my best friend Dad,” the Jane the Virgin star wrote. “I love you to the moon. When I’m with you smiling is all I can do. There aren’t enough thank you’s In the world so I’ll just remind you everyday how grateful I am for the father you have been to me and my sisters.” (Photo: Gina Rodriguez via Instagram)

David Beckham

We always love a good Beckham throwback. (That hair!) The retired soccer star used this old gem to thank his “dad — along with my mum” for “the support they gave me helped me achieve my dream.” (Photo: David Beckham via Instagram)

Victoria Beckham

And we also go to see modern Becks. Victoria posted this — with their mini-mes (Brooklyn, Cruz, Harper, and Romeo) — and wrote, “The best daddy in the world!!! We all love u so,so much.” She posted a tribute to her dad too. (Photo: Victoria Beckham via Instagram)

Ireland Baldwin

Alec Baldwin’s older daughter, Ireland, poked fun at his “rude, thoughtless little pig” voicemail with a throwback pic and message. “I love you. I always have and I always will,” wrote the model, whose mom is Kim Basinger. “You’re unique. You’re strong. You’re by far the funniest person I’ve ever known or will ever know and you make me so proud to be related to you. Thank you for all that you’ve ever taught me. You’re the best dad to me, Carmen, Rafa and Leo and I can’t wait for them to grow up and share the same beautiful memories with you as I do. I love you and thank you for always lifting me up and helping me figure out who I am! Happy Father’s Day … from your little piggy girl.” (Photo: Ireland Baldwin via Instagram)

Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman’s dad, Christopher, is just as cute as the movie star is. “Happy Father’s Day to all,” wrote the Aussie actor, who has two kids of his own. (Photo: Hugh Jackman via Instagram)

Gabrielle Union

In wishing her dad well on Father’s Day, Gabrielle Union shared the story of her pop’s first meeting with Dwyane Wade. “Happy Fathers Day Dad! To the man who told @dwyanewade within minutes of meeting him, ‘What do you want with my daughter? She’s got her own sh**, owns her own home, has a career… So whatcha bringing to the table that she doesn’t already have?'” she wrote. “D replied ‘I just want to love her.’ My dad stared at him dead in the face for a minute, then smiled ‘Well, what do you think about my Cornhuskers?’ My pops… He always has my back, taught me about valuing hard work and independence and that you ARE your brothers/sister’s keeper. Love you Dad.” (Photo: Gabrielle Union via Instagram)

Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson may (or may not) have moved on with Julian Assange, but she gave her baby dad, Tommy Lee a shout out. “We made beautiful babies,” Anderson — mom to Dylan and Brandon Lee — captioned this shot. (Photo: Pamela Anderson via Instagram)

Sarah Silverman

After giving her dad some Instagram love, Sarah Silverman posted a funny tribute to her boyfriend, Michael Sheen. “AND Happy Father’s Day to the man on the right (@mchshe2) who made the woman on the left (@lily_beckinsale) w the woman in the middle (@katebeckinsale) I love you allllll.” Kate’s reply was not surprisingly both amusing and vulgar, “Honestly I don’t know how it happened. Advice: Don’t sit on any washcloths he’s left lying about, that’s all I can think of.” (Photo: Sarah Silverman via Instagram)

Christie Brinkley

Christie Brinkley remembered her dad in a series of posts and then gave her eldest child Alexa Ray’s dad, Billy Joel, some Father’s Day love. “And I have to acknowledge this Dad too because whether you’re Alexa Ray or Della Rose he will walk to the ends of the Earth for you ( or at least to Tomorrowland) and then lay down to take a nap by your side. Happy Fathers Day Billy!” she wrote. Her exes Peter Cook and Richard Taubman weren’t so lucky. (Photo: Christie Brinkley via Instagam)

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore is also a friendly ex. She posted a photo of Will Kopelman with their kids, Frankie and Olive, and they had dinner together with his dad, Arie Kopelman. No word on whether Drew’s new man joined them but we’ll guess no. (Photo: Drew Barrymore via Instagram)

Sofia Richie

The closeness (and playfulness) between Sofia Richie and dad Lionel was on full display in her post. “Happy Father’s Day to big pimpin!,” wrote the model. “Couldn’t imagine this crazy life without you. Thank you for being the best dad you know to be.” (Photo: Sofia Richie via Instagram)
