Steve Carell is one seriously cool dad this Christmas morning.

The "Anchorman 2" actor, 51, got his daughter Elisabeth the best gift a 12-year-old girl could ever ask for -– a One Direction signed photograph after he met the band earlier this month.

Carell and the rest of the "Anchorman" cast hosted "Saturday Night Live" and even performed alongside the boy band, who were the musical guests.

"She is a big [One Direction] fan," Carell told ABC News. "She'll love [the signed photo] … It's going to blow her mind."

In fact, Carell's daughter might not be the only One Direction fan in the family. The actor said his interaction with the heartthrobs couldn't have gone any better.

"They are really nice guys. They are very sweet and grounded," he said. "I was very impressed."

Carell admitted he'll definitely be getting some bonus points in the eyes of his daughter after this stocking stuffer.

"Don't ruin the surprise," he joked.

Here are other gifts celebs are getting their kids today for Christmas.

Apparently, her son Jeffrey, 8, just decided to give her an updated Christmas list.

"He wants a Kindle Fire. I am going to get him an old Kindle. He wants an iPod, I am going to give him one of my old iPods," she told ABC News. "A lot of electronics, a lot of spy stuff, they have a lot of spy camera stuff on TV, so he wants all of that. He wants the gym shoes that light up, the Spider-Man shoes. He's so specific, I'm like, my God. It requires me to go like nine different stores."

Will's three sons -- Magnus, 9, Mattias, 6, and Axel, 3 -- are going to be taken on a cruise for the holidays.

"I'm going to take them on a cruise, but I'm not going to let them leave the room," he told reporters at the "Anchorman 2" premiere. "I've got to keep track of them."

The former "Saturday Night Live" funnyman said his sons also love electronics, so it's safe to say they are probably getting some gadgets today.

"Anytime they can get their hands on an iPad, that's their thing," he added.

Giuliana Rancic said she found the perfect Christmas gift for 16-month-old son Duke.

"It's a little vintage car. It's the cutest thing," she told ABC News while helping shoppers find great holiday gifts, working with T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. "I have this whole thing in my head. I am going to dress him in '50s-style clothing, his hair like back then and put him on the car. It's the sort of picture I think will last forever."

Fergie told ABC News Radio that she has the perfect gift for 4-month-old Axl Jack, one that money can't buy.

"I think the present that he would most want is to be held all the time. I think that's really what a child wants the most," Fergie said. "It's hard because you want to give them independence and teach them independence, to be able to self-soothe, but when they're complaining and cranky you just want to pick them up and hold them and nurture them. So I think a little extra holding."

Another celebrity parent who wants to give his children something money can't buy is country legend Garth Brooks.

"My older two, I'm lucky if I talk to once a week on the phone, and we have one baby left at the house that's a senior in high school," he told ABC News Radio. "So, they're so scattered, and they're always busy and moving."

Christmas provides an opportunity for the Brooks family to stop moving and reconnect with each other.

"My Christmas wish is just a time where everyone's at the same table where you get to hold hands, say a prayer and be a family again," Brooks said. "You know, be that family that's underneath the same roof."
