Nothing compares to the joy of being a father, especially when one is blessed with a child for the first time. The bliss extends to Father’s Day on June 16, but this time, as full-fledged dads. This is true for many celebrities as well, such as Albie Casiño and Zanjoe Marudo.

To mark Father’s Day, we have prepared a list of some of our favorite celebrities who have become first-time dads this year.


Albie Casiño

Shortly after the hit series “Can’t Buy Me Love” aired its final episode, entertainment insider Ogie Diaz reported last May that Albie Casiño went to the US after his non-showbiz girlfriend Michelina gave birth to their first child.


Casiño confirmed the reports weeks later, as he shared glimpses of himself welcoming his firstborn son Roman Andrew on social media. “I wouldn’t have it any other way. I finally got to meet my son. Hello, Roman Andrew. The world is yours, little man,” he wrote in one of his Instagram posts.

The actor seemed to be taking in fatherhood just fine, with him showing a peek at his day-to-day activities as a doting dad to his son.

Zanjoe Marudo

Zanjoe Marudo and Ria Atayde put the pregnancy speculations to rest, as the actress announced that they’re expecting their first child on Father’s Day. The confirmation comes months after they were hounded by rumors of the actress’ pregnancy, although she said that she didn’t “owe an announcement to anyone.”

“No words can explain this overwhelming love that I feel as I cradle you in my arms. My beautiful warrior, you fill me with awe and excitement,” he wrote on Instagram last May. “I promise to be your home and your protection. To nurture you with infinite love, the same love you’ve already shown me from the moment you took your very first breath.”

Robert Pattinson

The romantic relationship of Robert Pattinson and fiancée Suki Waterhouse became stronger than ever, as the couple welcomed their child in early 2024. Apart from Waterhouse announcing her pregnancy in November 2023, the couple kept details of their family of three under wraps.

Despite this, Pattinson and Waterhouse were seen together with their baby on multiple occasions, although they made sure to cover their baby’s face.

Lee Seung-gi

Lee Seung-gi is another first-time dad as he welcomed his first child with fellow actress Lee Da-in back in February. Like many celebrity couples, Lee opted to keep details about their firstborn private.
