From Brad Pitt to Hulk Hogan

 - Oct 21, 2008
The role of fatherhood has changed drastically in recent years, from Brad Pitt's football-sized family of globetrotters to Hulk Hogan's bizarre hands-on style of parenting.

Modern daddies like Brad Pitt play a much more involved role in parenting than did the fathers of generations past. Naturally, the need for more manly baby products arose, as no dad wants to be seen carrying a pink purse-like diaper bag.

There are also some more bizarre father-focused parenting stories. While it'll be awhile before we see if Brad Pitt and Shiloh head to a chastity ball together, we've already seen Hulk Hogan supervise his daughter Brooke's sexy photo shoot. And earlier this year, James Spears took control of troubled daughter Britney's assets; his efforts are largely credited for her comeback from insanity.

There are heartwarming stories in this cluster too, like Bindi Irwin's sweet tribute to her deceased father, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie asking Bono to be the godfather of their newborn twins. Read on to explore the good, bad and bizarre aspects of fatherhood.
