All too often we hear about famous dads who don't get it right. Lately, our news feeds have been buzzing with great celeb dads. And here is an interesting common thread: they all say their kids have made them more successful.

Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters frontman): It's changed everything that I do. When you have kids, you see life through different eyes. You feel love more deeply and are maybe a little more compassionate. It's inevitable that that would make its way into your songwriting.

Keith Urban (country music star): He thanked his little girl when he won his grammy. On being a father, he says, "It’s stretched my heart, is what it’s done."

Roger Federer (tennis prodigy): Upon winning his 15th grand slam in the Australian Open this week, Federer puts it all in perspective: "There is not only tennis...having kids and being a father now and being married enhances everything...It just makes me extremely happy, extremely relaxed and it allows me to play good tennis, and I couldn't ask for more."

Do you feel like your kids have enhanced your success? How have they changed you?
