When Mary was ready to marry Joseph, she was inspired by the Holy Spirit to conceive Jesus. Joseph thought in his sleep that an angel had told him that the Virgin was carrying a future savior. So Joseph married Mary. Joseph was not really Jesus’ father, but he had always been very good to him.

Joseph was a Nazarene in the first century who, according to the canonical gospels, married Mary, the mother of Jesus. He is the rightful father of Jesus. The gospels also mention some brothers of Jesus, who may also have been sons of Joseph. The Gospel of James, a pseudo-work from the late 2nd century, sees these as the sons of Joseph’s early marriages. This position still exists in The Eastern Orthodox Church, but the Western church insists on Jerome’s argument that Joseph and Mary must be lifelong virgins and that the “brothers” must be his Cousins. In the theological interpretation of the gospels, Joseph as a historical figure is different. After all, Joseph was very good to Jesus. There are many statues of Joseph holding Jesus which are very popular among people. You can take a look at our catholic Saint Joseph sculpture.
