It’s no secret that Father’s Day isn’t as popular as Mother’s Day — and there are actually statistics to prove this! In fact, two-thirds of social media-savvy dads agree that their day of the year doesn’t get as much media attention as Mother’s Day (sorry dad, we’ll try to do better next year). 

Since Father’s Day 2021 is coming up, The Influence Agency is here to shine the spotlight on some of the cool dads on Instagram! These American dad influencers are sharing their wisdom and adventures with the world of social media and are quickly gaining massive traction for it.

Scroll through to see who they are — and get ready to add 10 more people to the list of accounts you’re following!

Duane McLaughlin | @duanemclaughlin

Duane McLaughlin may seem like a “dad of few words” on social media, but that’s just because he often lets his amazing Instagram photos do all the talking. 

We love how this American dad influencer’s feed literally looks like a breath of fresh air with its minimalist and artistic aesthetic. What we love even more is that Duane says “one thing is certain, I’ll never look back on life and say ‘I spent too much time with my kids.’” Cool dad alert!

The adventures of the two Dallas dads and their adorable twin boys are a must-follow on Instagram! Whether they’re boat riding or making snowmen, their family photos always look like a fun boys day out that make you want to join in on the fun.
