I am feeling lucky today that these sexy men are not our dads.Or it would be weird to lust after them …
Dear Mr. Ben Affleck, You have won the Boring Celebrity Dad award –Hurray! well, being a boring dad is really a great thing in Hollywood. You can see Ben with daughters Violet and Seraphina and wife Jennifer Garner at parks and at baseball games.
It was hard to imagine the goofy, rapping, joke-cracking Will Smith from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air maturing into a dad, but with wife Jada Pinkett by his side, he’s all family man. The two became parents to Jaden in ’98 and Willow in ’00. His video Just the Two of Us — which features him clowning around with his son from a previous relationship, Trey, born in ’92 — is evidence that even though Smith gets to rock Hollywood blockbusters and rap worldwide, being a dad is the best job he has.
A dad that’s hilarious, smart, and hot? Not too good to be true. The only problem will be when Nathan (born July ’04) and Maggie (born February ’06) try to pull a fast one on this sharp dad — we’re not sure they’ll be able to get anything by Papa Stewart. Good luck, kids!
Dad to Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, Knox and Vivienne, Brad Pitt has his hands full. If the acting thing doesn’t work out, he could always paint a bus and start a traveling family choir, Von Trapp style.
Yes, the perfect body’s nice, but what’s sexiest about actor Hugh Jackman is how obviously smitten he is with his two adopted children — Oscar (born in May ’00) and Ava (born July ’05). Jackman seems to be a playful dad; he’s been photographed having snowball fights and zooming down playground slides.
You may have doubts about the paternal instinct of a man who pillages ships, wields scissor-hands, and turns people into minced meat pies on the big screen, but this dreamy dad is actually a family man. Depp and his partner Vanessa Paradis have two children, Lily-Rose (born May ’99) and John “Jack” Christopher Depp III (born April ’02). It can’t be an accident that we know very little about them — the enigmatic Depp has kept his family life private. Does he dress up in pirate swag or give them pocketfuls of chocolate bars?
Cruise is experiencing the full spectrum of parenting with his wife Katie Holmes and two teenagers (Isabella, born in December ’92, and Connor, born in January ’95 — both adopted with ex-wife Nicole Kidman) and a preschooler (Suri, born in April ’06 to wife Katie Holmes).
Babies bring out the softies in everyone — even cool guys like Usher. The R&B singer told RWDmag.com he witnessed the birth of his son Usher Raymond V (born November ’07). “It wasn’t gory at all — I cut the cord and everything. It was the realest tear I ever cried. It was uncontrollable; when I heard his voice, I just cried (snaps fingers) like that.” Usher is also dad to Naviyd (born December ’08.)
