Head’s-up: It’s Father’s Day on Sunday, and if you feel like getting a little teary with your celebrity news, Time magazine has got your back. The site, with a partnership from Lean In, got a bunch of famous Dads to write open letters to their daughters. The results are sad, happy, sweet, funny and — if you’re their daughters — probably just a little “Oh my Goddd, Daddd! You’re embarrassing me!

Check out some of our favorite passages below, and you can read all the letters –– including some from politicos such as Michael Bloomberg and Marco Rubio – over on Time’s site.

From Aaron Sorkin: “You were born a week early and in the middle of the night. It was late on a Friday and mom was at a fashion show at the Pacific Design Center while I was on the set of The West Wing, a show you might watch one day with your friends and think, ‘Now I understand why I have to use ten words when one would do the trick.'”

From Ethan Hawke: “My mother raised me to be a feminist and I wonder how I can do the same for you. The best advice she ever gave me is to never make a big decision without walking at least a mile. Also, that there is no cure for blues better than reading. Read. It makes you more intelligent. It’s that simple. We all see the universe through the tiny keyhole of our own eyes, and every book is another keyhole from which you can gaze.”

From Mario Lopez: “Whenever you’re on stage or at gymnastics or in front of a camera, you always turn it on. I don’t know where you get that from! You’re always game even when you’re in a mood, and that strength will be important throughout your life.”

Heck, even Bruce Jenner got in on the fun, writing a note to his two youngest daughters. “You just have to find something that makes you excited to wake up in the morning and start your day. That is true success. Brandon with his music, Kimberly with her business and Kourtney with her dedication to her family—these are all great examples to follow.”
