There have been plenty of celebrities who have become teen moms, like Jamie Lynn Spears, Anna Nicole Smith and Sofia Vergara. Celebrity teen dads are harder to come by, though, which is why someone needs to speak up for the poor, unfortunate dudes who have been victimized by faulty condoms. On tomorrow night’s episode of “Guy Code,” the show will explore teen dads, so we’ve rounded up a list of five of the coolest celebrities who were once teen fathers.

Johnston‘s one of those celebrity teen dads who only became famous because of who he knocked up, Bristol Palin. He was 18 and she was 17 when their son Tripp was born in December 2008. The Alaskan hockey-playing bro rode the wave of stardom for his solid 15 minutes of fame, but has since broken up with Palin and married another woman, whom he had a daughter with last year.
4. Taylor Hanson
Who would have guessed one of the long-haired, roller skating Hanson kids would become a teen dad? Middle brother Taylor was 19 when his son Jordan Ezra was born in 2002, and his wife was 18. Yep, he was married with a kid two years before he could even touch a beer. Since then, the couple apparently hasn’t been able to keep their hands off each other, spawning four more kids in the last decade. Hansonz for dayz.

Weezy was 15 when his oldest daughter Reginae was born, and his now ex-wife was 14. Since then, he’s had three more kids, but so far, Reginae’s the only one who has been following in her daddy’s footsteps.

Celebrity teen dads, 1600s edition: The Bard apparently had some suave moves. He was 18 when he got married and had a daughter named Susanna with a woman who was 7 years older than him. Way to woo the elder maiden, Will.

LBJ was 19 when LeBron James Jr. was born in 2004. We’re willing to bet being the son of The Chosen One is pretty awesome but also completely terrifying, since his dad is a straight beast. But if this video is any indication, James Jr. might already be trying to outdo dad.
