22 amazing single fathers who proved to be fantastic dads-and-moms all rolled in one!

These single dads left all alone after having lost their spouses, figure out ways and means of dealing with the challenging situation they face in their day to day life, bringing up their babies, all by themselves.

Parenthood is a joint venture, between the father and mother, both sharing the joys and pains of bringing up children. It is a job that requires no training, but expects you to be an expert the moment the baby is born. It is difficult, as it is, with each one fulfilling their respective duties. But these fathers were thrown into the challenging situation, unexpectedly with a newborn baby in hand — without a mother.

Bringing up children is by far, the most important and difficult task in the world. You are suddenly, totally responsible for a new life and its welfare. Plenty of people will offer advice and criticism, but then, you are eventually alone. Being alone, for a guy to play both the mother and father is a herculean task for sure. Girls need their mothers as role models… to understand their mood swings, their first time trying out of make up, the hairdos, the dressing up…tons of things.

For a dad, this does become a challenge — and this is what these dads took it up as, a challenge, and faced it head on.

#1. This father lost his partner giving birth to their beautiful baby. Friends helped him put together the recordings of the mother’s lullabies for the baby.

The wife had prepared a bucket list for the two of them, which the dad is going ahead and living it out with his son.


#2. Left without a woman in his life, he fulfills his hearts desires of doing stuff for one, with the most deserving woman in his life — his daughter.
