Bill Clinton has been named the 2013 “Father of the Year” by the National Father’s Day Council.
Clinton will receive his award at the 72nd Annual Father of the Year Awards in New York City on Tuesday, June 11. That’s like, the Tuesday before Father’s Day!
Clinton, a father himself to one daughter, is married to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and is – according to Wikipedia – former President of the United States. Who knew?
The National Father’s Day Council says that Clinton won the award for his philanthropic work benefiting children worldwide through his Clinton Foundation.
