Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and father figures out there. Working with @UNICEF has given me the opportunity to meet dads and their children from all around the world. This has been a challenging time for everyone and we all need to show a lot of love and strength to keep our kids safe and happy. Our normal lives might be on hold but the time we spend together now is giving us the chance to bond and make the #EarlyMomentsMatter. From my family to yours, have a great Father’s Day.
