Being a parent with a normal job is hard. Now imagine being on the road much of the year and still tackling the responsibilities of having a family. Many musicians balance their crazy work schedule with family hangouts and, of course, changing diapers. So we’ve compiled a handful of rock star parents who have the talent to juggle several duties and make it look easy.

We also want to congratulate all the new parents in the scene and the music industry as a whole, and we wish you the best of luck and nothing but happiness with your new family. As you all adapt to your hectic schedules, here are some of our all-time favorite rock star parents, from Frank Iero to LIGHTS

Travis Clark, lead singer of We The Kings, is one of the happiest fathers in the world. He and his wife, Jenny Robinson, are parents to three beautiful girls: Kinsley, Kya and Kali. Clark is vocal about how tough it is to travel without his family and how much he misses them on the road. When he’s home, though, he loves making vlogs, posts about his family and even teaches his daughters about music.

Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance, Leathermouth, Frank Iero And The Future Violents) is another rock star parent with three children—Cherry, Lily and Miles—with his wife, Jamia Nestor. He even featured his two twin daughters in the music video for his song “B.F.F.” The original announcement accompanying the song explained that all proceeds would go toward the twins’ and brother Miles’ college funds, which clearly makes Iero the best dad ever.

 Dan Pawlovich, drummer for Panic! At The Disco, and his wife, Maya Tuttle, welcomed a baby girl, Reiko Jo, into the world Feb. 25. As soon as she was born, she was decked out in only the finest baby threads: a P!ATD-themed onesie. Little Reiko donned the band’s triangle logo. But instead of an exclamation point at the center of the logo, there’s a baby bottle. Congrats to these new parents and their beautiful daughter. We have high hopes for you!

Jason Aalon Butler

Former singer of letlive. and current frontman of FEVER 333 Jason Aalon Butler is very close to his son, Pascal. It was surely rewarding for Butler to bring his son on tour for the 2-year-old’s birthday. “Having Pascal with me on parts of this tour and especially on his birthday this past weekend was incredibly special, and although he may not remember this moment in time, he made it clear to me that he felt it now. This is something I will remember and cherish until the day I die. I love you so much, son,” he wrote in a post. What a sweet birthday gift! Butler and his wife, Gin Wigmore, had their second son, Izaiah, in March.
