Celebrity Dads and Their Sons

On a day especially devoted to Dad, here are some inspirational Father and Son stories, from Australia’s hottest male celebrities.

Sam Wood: The Bachelor from 2015

2015 The Bachelor Sam Wood enjoys being a step-father to Eve.

On his relationship with his father, Sam says: “My Dad is such an inspiration to me. When I was 15, my Mum passed away. Dad sold his business to take care of me, my 12-year-old sister and my 8-year-old brother. He made so many sacrifices for us and this is something you never forget.” On being a dad himself, he says: “I hope I am able to inspire Eve and our baby girl the same way my dad inspired me.”

Michael Klim: Former Olympic Champion Swimmer

On his relationship with his son Rocco Klim says: “Rocco is inspirational to me because even though he might have some insecurities and is battling a little with the family dynamics of having two sisters, he manages to wake up most days with a huge smile on his face and attack each day with a positive attitude and gusto.”

Hugh Jackman: Australian Actor

“My Father is my rock. It’s where I learned everything about loyalty, dependability, being there day in, day out, no matter what. And on being a dad, this celebrity father says “ Unbelievable, tiring, magical… the most challenging role I’ve ever had. Kids have a way of pushing your buttons more than anyone else. If there’s stuff in your life you haven’t worked through – as a parent, you’re going to have to work through it.”

Chris Hemsworth: Australian Actor

On being a father, Chris says: “They’re non-stop, active kids. The biggest thing I’ve learned by having kids is that now I know what love is. I know what frustration is. I know the full gamut of emotions, good and bad. I feel I had just scratched the surface prior.” Chris takes a lot of inspiration from his dad and says: “Thanks for taking me surfing every weekend and driving me to football training and athletics training and to friends houses and anywhere and everywhere and for loving mum and us kids so much. Love you.”
