Now here's a Father's Day story we didn't see coming, in a good way. Bobby Brown and his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown have apparently reconciled!

The daughter of the late Whitney Houston has long been estranged from her father, who had a tumultuous relationship with the music icon to say the least.

All water under the bridge now, it looks like. Bobbi Kristina Instagrammed the two pics above, writing that she "got a running start" to jump into his arms.

"My face says it all," she added. "I love you daddy."

She didn't elaborate ... but wow. Just wow.

Since Whitney Houston died two and a half years ago, and most likely a long time before that, the two have been at odds, barely speaking at all.

Breastfeeding photos will now be allowed on your Facebook feed following considerable backlash and the #FreeTheNipple campaign designed to, well ...

The nipple has been freed. Enough said.

Gisele Bundchen Breastfeeding
Gisele Bundchen breastfeeding and getting all made up for a modeling shoot. That is some impressive multitasking right there.

Facebook's Community Standards never outright banned breastfeeding photos, but they were often removed after being reported for "nudity or pornography."

Sometime within the past few weeks, however, Facebook quietly changed their policy to explicitly permit you to post breastfeeding pictures online.

The breastfeeding policy now reads as such in the company's Q&A:

Q: Does Facebook allow photos of mothers breastfeeding?

A: Yes. We agree that breastfeeding is natural and beautiful and we're glad to know that it's important for mothers to share their experiences with others on Facebook.

Happy Father's Day from The Hollywood Gossip! It's time to celebrate the man in your life who, well, gave you life. Or at least the one who helped raise you.

Hollywood is notorious for its unflattering portrayals of fathers as being bumbling and incompetent men who have no business raising babies.

In real life, there are some celebrity dads (and regular, non-celebrity dads, too) who throw that trope right out the window and proving that they really do deserve that Dad of the Year award.

From being there for preschool pickup to rearranging work schedules to handle the nightly bedtime routine to coaching little league teams, our favorite famous dads do it all and do it in style.

Join us in celebrating 15 celebrity dads we love below!

Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum is super in love with his daughter Everly. He even wore her when she was a newborn to shield her from the paparazzi AND help her stay soothed.

When it comes to some of Hollywood's biggest and brighest stars, many of them are quick to thank their parents for unconditional support throughout the years.

Others, however, have tales of very public estrangement from their parents, their fathers in particular. Both make for interesting celebrity gossip stories.

Since it's Father's Day, we thought we'd take a look at 9 celebrities and their dads.

Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus
Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, has always supported his daughter's musical career, for good or for ill.

It's hard to find a more supportive father than Billy Ray Cyrus. Despite any and all of Miley Cyrus' crazy antics throughout the years, Billy Ray has stood by his baby girl. 

Since it was his career which introduced her to this life, he's probably making the right call by keeping any disappointments he may have to himself.

This is the Dad Life ... it's how we live, 24/7/365. No more to be said.

Said life is one to be celebrated, whether it's Father's Day or any other day, and whether you're giving props to your own dad or the father of someone you know.

Bottom line, Father's Day is a great opportunity to thank the man who helped raise you. Because those World's Best Dad coffee mugs don't win themselves.

You don't have to be a dad yourself to appreciate this viral video - an oldie but goodie - honoring fathers across the nation on this 15th day of June.

Break out the John Deere and the barbecue and have a good one:

Being a dad isn't easy, but nothing in this world is more worthwhile.

For being there for school pickups to reading before bed, coaching little league and generally just being awesome, we thank all of you dads out there.

On a related note, here are 15 celebrity dads we particularly love:

Dear Children of America...

It's nearly Father's Day. And the following Craigslist user likely speaks for all male parents around the world when he asks just one favor of you in honor of his parental holiday:

Please think twice - nay, three times! - before deciding you NEED to have a certain item for your backyard.

Especially when said item will be put together by dear ol' dad... and then never used again after the first 24 hours of excitement.

Such was the case with the father who put up the Craigslist ad below, asking if anyone wants a trampoline kids begged and pleaded for. And then promptly ignored.

Click to enlarge the photo and read the man's hilariously bitter diatribe explaining why this is now for sale...

What father out there cannot relate, right?

As the old adage goes, breaking up is hard to do.

Sometimes you have to do it, though, even if it happens to be on your one-month anniversary and even if it's really, really hard to summon the courage.

If you need inspiration, people, here it is ...

Kid Breakup Note: It's Hard!

We know this was emotionally taxing, DeLandren. A month of dating when you're in grade school is like a year in adult time. But way to stay the course, man.

If it wasn't working with Krystal, it's not fair to either one of you to continue leading her on. Sometimes the shortest route is the best, even when it's tough.

No hard feelings, though. Happy anniversary BTW!

Sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do, whether it's ending a romantic relationship or breaking up with a babysitter, and always it's better to be honest.

More classic kid notes after the jump:

Kids don't just say the darndest things... such as firing their babysitter for a disagreement over Barbie.

They also do the darndest things... such as scaling a rock-climbing wall in front of their strong father, who isn't just rippling with muscles in the following video.

He's rippling with pride.

Can you blame the guy? Look at this 20-month old baby go! 

Children, huh?

They may give you problems when trying to recreate an adorable Pinterest picture.

Karlesha Thurman has unintentionally entered the public breastfeeding debate.

The senior recently graduated from California State University and shared an intimate photo of the big day on the Facebook group page for Black Women Do Breastfeed.

She explained her motivation for doing so thusly, saying of her daughter:

"She was my motivation to keep going, so me receiving my BA was OUR moment, so glad I captured the moment and so glad you shared it with the world so thank you again."

As you might expect, however, Thurman's proud moment became a source of contention within the online community.

Jaime King is hoping her boobs canachieve a ceasefire in the Mommy Wars.

The Hart of Dixie star took to Instagram yesterday and posted an intimate photo of herself nursing eight-month old son James.

Like the image of Natalia Vodianova breastfeeding online, is King making a statement about how society ought to quit shunning those who make this act public when need be?

Yes. But that's not all the actress is trying to accomplish.

"#JamesKnight is now 8 months old! These are the moments a mother lives for," King wrote as a caption, addressing parents around the world and adding:

"Breastfeeding should not be taboo - and bottle feeding should not be judged - it’s ALL fun for the whole family:)"
