Aaron Aziz may come from humble beginnings but armed with some serious acting chops, the former waiter is currently one of the hottest personalities gracing the TV screens in Singapore and Malaysia. This family man’s determination to succeed coupled with his big heart is why this homegrown actor and director has been chosen as our Dad Crush of the week. Read on to find out more about him:
His photos on Instagram are often that of his family, showing the strong, envious bond they have and how close they are.
After a visit to MOSH!:

Visiting the Singapore Zoo:
Hujung minggu is for family time! Every long weekend and school holiday, we try to do something fun together as a family. One of our favourite places to go to is definitely Singapore Zoo! This was taken after we had breakfast with an entire family of orang utans! Eventhough we just went yesterday, it's never enough and we can't wait to go back and check out their Wildlife Tours and get behind-the-scenes look of how the zoo cares for its animals. What do you think long weekends are made for? #jomsingapore @visit_singapore #aaronazizfamily
Aaron started his career with local dramas and sitcoms and in 2013 was the first Asian actor to get his very own E! Entertainment special about his life. He now shuttles between Singapore and Malaysia but doesn’t let that hamper his abilities to be around for his family.
It is very evident that his children mean a lot to him and that he dotes on them a lot even being quoted as saying “a daughter will always be a daddy’s girl”. He also referred to his children as a gift and that they should be never treated as a burden. His two daughters Dahliah and Dwi and son Danish sure are lucky!
"No dad I like my hair flat and this side is not like this etc…. " ok son I got this ok. Haha Preparing my son for his prom just now. Have fun son eventhough u will be meeting ur frens again in September at a different block, the secondary block! ? thank u @kennylords for touching up his suit! Appreciate much! #aaronazizfamily #danishananqiaaron #kanggary #kanggarymelayu
His gorgeous wife Diyana — whom he affectionately refers to as Dar — is never far from his mind:
After a hard days work, found this note in the luggage the after checking in a Hotel. Really makes my sweat, tiredness and sacrifices all worth it. Thank you Dar @diyanahalik Love you so much. Thank you for always reminding me of the right things in life. #aaronazizfamily #diyanahalik #aaronaziz #husbandandwife
Aaron is widely received with smiles wherever he goes. The public clearly loves him:
The kind man is also down-to-earth and humble. He does not forget his employees’ birthdays:
Wishing my most hardworking staff whom i regard him as family @acikxds HAPPY BIRTHDAY KHAIRI saya doakan semoga ALLAH swt sentiasa melindungi awak dan keluarga dari segala hasad dengki manusia, memberi rahmat dan kesejahteraan dunia akhirat, murah rezeki & bahagia selalu. Thank you for all these years of hardwork. Sekali pun tak pernah bermasam muka walau penat mcm manapun. Tak pernah leka dalam menjalankan tugas dan tak pernah kata "tak boleh" bila saya dan keluarga meminta pertolongan awak. Saya rasa bersukur kpd ALLAH kerana memberi awak kpd saya. Cant find another you. #aaronazizfamily #aaronaziz
He supports charities and is an avid supporter of the Malaysian Make-A-Wish foundation:
