Brad Pitt

​Dad to: Maddox, 10½, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and Knox and Vivienne, 3½

We didn’t think it was possible for Brad’s hot factor to go up, but when he became dad to six kids it zoomed off the charts. His clean-cut, smooth-talking role in Moneyball didn't hurt that hot factor either....

A version of this article appeared in our June 2012 issue with the headline "Paparazzi Papas," pp. 97-99.

Matthew McConaughey

Dad to: Levi, 3, and Vida, 2

We love seeing photos of Matthew out for a run, but we also love seeing him go to church with his family dressed in his Sunday best. Oh, but who are we kidding? Two words: Magic Mike!

David Beckham

Dad to: Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 9½, Cruz, 7, and Harper Seven, 10 months (not pictured)

Any man who takes his boys boogie boarding, ceramic painting and to the sports field while their mom Victoria Beckham is busy with the newborn is a hot dad in our books.

Jason Bateman

Dad to: Francesca Nora, 5½, and Maple Sylvie, 3 months (not pictured)

When the name of his new baby, Maple Sylvie, made headlines, many of us wondered if it was an homage to the Canadian roots of his wife Amanda — because it sounds a bit like “Maple Syrup Bacon.” (Seriously, say it 10 times fast!)

Liev Schreiber

Dad to: Alexander, 4½, and Samuel, 3½

He’s not your typical Hollywood hunk, and we like that. When we see him carrying his kids on his shoulders and pushing strollers with his partner Naomi Watts, he always makes us swoon.

Mark Wahlberg

Dad to: Ella Raw, 8½, Michael, 6, Brendan, 3½ (not pictured) and Grace, 2 (not pictured)

Though he made some controversial remarks about 9/11 this year, he’s still one of our favourite dads — with that gentle side we see when he’s with his kids.

Orlando Bloom

Dad to: Flynn, 1

Often seen holding Flynn in a baby carrier, this hands-on dad keeps his gorgeous family (including Flynn’s supermodel mom Miranda Kerr) close.

Elton John

Dad to: Zachary, 1

Did you know Elton had the surrogate mother’s breastmilk couriered from the US to England for baby Zachary? We love Elton’s passion for fatherhood, and the funny faces he makes. Peek-a-boo!

Ben Affleck

Dad to: Violet, 6, Seraphina, 3, and Samuel, 3 months (not pictured)

When wife Jennifer Garner was pregnant with baby No. 3, Ben would take the girls to the farmers’ market, often returning with bunches of flowers for mom. Melt.

Usher

Dad to: Usher Raymond V, 4½, and Naviyd, 3

With a voice that can soothe even the most frazzled mom and, of course, those rock-hard abs, Usher can sing us a lullaby anytime.

Neil Patrick Harris

Dad to: twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace, 1½

When Neil and David Burtka announced they were proud new dads to twins Gideon and Harper, you could feel their joy across the continent.

Hugh Jackman

Dad to: Oscar, 12, and Ava, 6½

Often seen playing at the beach with his kids, Hugh really captured our hearts when he and his wife opened up about their infertility struggle and how the adoptions of his two children were their “destiny.”
