Celebrities are just like us on Father's Day -- excited to spend time with their families.

In honor of the holiday, here are some of the sweetest quotes from the likes of Channing Tatum, Brad Pitt and Chris Pratt about being a dad.

Channing Tatum on daughter Everly

In 2014, Tatum gushed to Ellen DeGeneres, "She actually has better taste in music than I think I do," he said of his 8-month-old daughter at the time. "She only will fall asleep to really good music ... she might be conceited, not sure, 'Most Beautiful Girl in the World' by Prince ... She loves falling asleep to that."

He also told Redbook about his dances with wife Jenna while they change Everly's diapers.

"Dance battles do sort of happen, to be honest. When we wake up in the morning we put on music, and while Everly's eating we dance and it just starts to get stupid. Changing the baby is an intermission — but our daughter hates getting her diaper changed, so it's almost like a break-dancing battle to get it on her. As soon as you lay her down, she's bridging out of it and doing some jujitsu windmill. It's pretty intense," he said.

Chris Pratt on son Jack

In 2015, Pratt told DeGeneres about his then 2-year-old son Jack.

"It's very easy to be patient with this kid. He's just a remarkable kid," he said. "He's so vocal ... It's super frustrating because you're like, 'All right Jack, I think it's time for bed' and he'll say, 'I thought about it and no thanks, Dad. Not right now.' He's so polite! What am I supposed to do?"

Brad Pitt on his six children

Last year, Pitt really summed up life and family, expressing how much his children with wife Angelina Jolie really mean to him.

"I care about them more than I care about myself," Pitt told Psychologies. "You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family ... You learn to value the basic beauty of family, of watching your children grow and evolve. It's the most beautiful thing you can experience."

Ryan Phillippe on daughter Ava

Last September, the "Cruel Intentions" star tweeted a sweet message to his daughter on her birthday.

"15 yrs ago today, was my last [day] on, The Way of the Gun. A helicopter waited off set to transport me from the 'Mexican brothel' in Utah to Cedars Sinai in Beverly Hills," he tweeted. "With my stomach in knots, exhausted & dirty, covered in syrupy fake blood & shards of candy glass the heli[copter] found the pad and I was taken to an area to sterilize myself. I made it to my then wife's bedside w/ two hours to spare before," he continued. "My baby girl first entered the world. 15 years ago I learned what love truly is."

Taye Diggs on son Walker

In 2011, Diggs had the most amazing things to say about his son.

"When he smiles, it's as if he's blessing us. We're the parents and should be the ones in control, but he's the little prince, and we feel like we're waiting on him," he told Good Housekeeping.

Kanye West on daughter North

Right after his daughter's birth in 2013, West went on Kris Jenner's talk show to chat about his bundle of joy.

"After I lost my mother, there were times I felt like, I would put my life at risk. I felt like sometimes I didn't have something to live for," the rapper said. "Now I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for. A whole world to live for."

Chris Hemsworth on daughter India, and twin sons, Tristan and Sasha

"I think it makes you less selfish, because it's no longer about you," he told E! News earlier this year. "It can't be. It's about someone else, which is refreshing. It's nice to not spend all your time thinking about your own problems and garbage up there and I just have so much fun doing it. It's the best.
