Dads have always been there for us, picking us up when we fall down and advising us on everything from career choices to personal finances. They can be our closest friends, mentors, and biggest cheerleaders in our life. So it’s great to have dads by your side during important moments.
The same is true for some Hollywood celebrities. All of them understand the happiest thing is to have their father’s companion during their special events. Take actress Jennifer Aniston as an example. On Feb. 22, 2012, she received the 2,462nd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And on that important day, she invited her father – actor John Aniston – as a companion. And recently, at the 2020 Grammy Awards, Camila Cabello appeared gorgeously next to her father Alejandro Cabello while walking on the red carpet. Then, when the singer took the stage, she dedicated the song “First Man” to her father, Alejandro, who cried in the audience.
