We all talk about the value of quality time, but it's not always as easy as it sounds. For one, there never seems to be enough time in the day! For many families, they work around this issue by scheduling “date nights,” not just with our partners, but the kids, too. We've increasingly seen dads going on "dates" with their children (yey!), and we're glad to see the ideas are not confined to fancy restaurants either. As long as the kids are happy and dad gets quality bonding time with them, then it’s a date! Take a cue at how these celebrity fathers are doing it: 1. Doug Kramer
Anyone following the Team Kramer happenings via their social media pages knows that dad Doug is all about his three adorable kids, Kendra, Scarlett, and Gavin. “I’m so attached to my kids that just spending time with them makes everything better for me,” he says in a Manila Times interview.
Friday nights at the Team Kramer household is for watching flicks with dad Doug. The video above is taken at one of their “Fridates” to watch Captain America: Civil War at the “Kramer Cinema,” which is at home. By the way, their home theater isn't a couple of sofas and one giant screen. We're talking about theater seats (it can comfortably seat approximately 25 to 40 people), sound-proof walls, and a sound system that Doug helped put together.
When he's not shooting hoops on the basketball court, the PBA player lets his daughters give him makeovers. Looking fab, dad!
2. Ryan Agoncillo
There are many reasons why Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo are always #RelationshipGoals. For one, he makes sure to attend Yohan’s swimming competitions and have dad-and-daughter time afterward.
Gym date? Ryan takes the kids to the gym with him too. They help him with his workout routine.
But arguably Ryan’s favorite time of the day to spend time with his kids is in the morning where he’s taken a fair few precious and quirky photos of them.
3. Hayden Kho
Hayden and Scarlet Snow love each other's company, and it's plain to see when you look at Scarlet's Instagram account, which may just be the most followed celeb baby on Instagram. Hayden takes most of the videos on Scarlet Snow's Instagram.
Their bonding time involves a lot of playing and learning. He’s usually with her for her many lessons including swimming, gym, and Mandarin (yes, that's the language, not the fruit).

Recently, the pair has been singing a lot of songs and learning how to tell between small, medium and tall. “She became my priority ever since she was born. I realized that my life would be lived through her eyes, so whatever her experiences will be, will be my experience [also]. [If] she's happy, then I'm happy. If she's sad, then I'm sad,” he told SmartParenting.com.ph in an exclusive interview you can find here.
Whether chilling at home or off on an adventure (likely somewhere with sea and sand), Richard and Zion like to stick together. On the dad's free days, he likes having movie dates with Zion.
Above is a photo of them lying bed with Zion still in his pajamas and Richard already dressed for work "contemplating whether to watch Kung Fu Panda or Jungle Book."
Dates can also be spent on the tracks cheering for the RGutz Racing Team or having a bubble bath in the tub on weekends. Take it from mom Sarah Lahbati; he's an awesome dad. “You’re an amazing father to Zion. You’re everything I hoped for to help in raising our little family,” she wrote in an Instagram post last Father's day.
5. GP Reyes
What does little Olivia and dad GP like to do together to unwind? Go shopping! Yes, the adorable Baby O is on her way to becoming a fashionista just like mom Andi Manzano. At home, they love watching TV together. Below is them at the mall with Olivia already having picked out several pieces for herself. Cutie!
The pair also gets into all sorts of shenanigans, which GP loves to caption with funny pretend conversations between him and his little girl (they're tagged with #convoswitholivia on Instagram).
6. JC Intal
Baby Lucia gets a lot of attention from basketball player dad, JC, who shares loads of photos of her on his Instagram page. They go on dates during the weekends to play places, the mall, and at home.
And, guess what? He's already given her a ring. *Wink* Super sweet!
7. Ogie Alcasid
With his daughter with Michelle van Eimeren, Leila, now living in Manila, dad Ogie is making up for the time they spent away from each other with lots and lots of bonding time. They've been on movie dates, worked out together, and she also accompanied him for a contract signing with a major TV network.
