Father's Day is a big deal, even if you're the President of the United States.

Obama recently called Father's Day a "forgotten holiday," noting that people make a bigger deal out of Mother's Day. This prompted First Lady Michelle Obama to tell the president to knock it off, because "every day is Father's Day" for the Obama family.

While Obama's daughters are still young, other politicians' kids have paved their own path in the political world.

Below, a slideshow of politicians' and their well-known kids:
