“I learn more about myself every day because you both chose me to be your daddy,” Timberlake wrote. “I will always be there for you through your peaks and valleys…to lift you up and show you how far you can take this life and to pick you up when you fall. And, of course, to shower you with jokes from unbearable dad all the way.”

“I love you both so much,” he said.
