Hollywood being overrun by hot dads

Women, here's a way to celebrate Father's Day differently: Ogle some of Hollywood's hottest dads.

It seems like every other celebrity has recently become a new dad and these new dads are not at all shy about lavishing attention on their wives and kids.

Are your ovaries exploding yet?

Father's Day need not be just about the tired fathers out there struggling with diaper duty. Dads can be cool head-turners, too.


He may have relinquished his dad bod for a more chiselled body that he's been showing off on magazine covers. But Pratt will always be a dad at heart.

At a recent press junket in Beijing for his new movie Jurassic World, which opens here tomorrow, the US actor, who has a two-year-old son, Jack, with actress Anna Faris, admitted that fatherhood is a continuous learning journey.

Pratt, 35, got his start in Hollywood as that lovable chubby guy in TV series Parks And Recreation. He got his big break in last year's summer hit Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Now, he's headlining Jurassic World, where he plays Owen Grady, a former navy man-turned-dinosaur researcher.

Pratt is in demand, but it won't get in the way of family. He said: "I have to spend at least some time with my son every day through Skype or just a video I'll send him."

But he admitted that the tough decisions will have to be made when Jack gets older.

"I might just have to turn down some jobs because I haven't spent enough time with him. He's more important to me than show business."


Where does Hemwsorth find the time to keep in shape, take on huge roles like Thor and still be a devoted father?

Does the hunky 31-year-old Aussie have a superpower that we don't know about?

The father of three-year-old India Rose and 15-month-old twins Tristan and Sasha looks best when he's topless at a beach playing with his brood.

There are many paparazzi photos online of him carrying his babies around, proving just how hands-on he is.

He even lets India Rose paint his nails and put lipstick on him.


Reynolds is a relatively new dad, but that doesn't make the 38-year-old Canadian any less hot.

While there haven't been any photos of his little girl, James (yes, you read that right), who was born last December, he can't resist talking about her at press appearances.

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, he joked: "Our baby's allergic to sleep. We think she's protecting us from the sleep monsters."


The Beckhams are the real royal family. And British football superstar David Beckham, who has three sons and a daughter with his wife Victoria Beckham, is very much a family man.

He told talk show host James Corden that he sat five tables from Brooklyn, 16, on the boy's first date.

And ever the proud father, Beckham, 40, was thrilled that Harper, four, was taking after him when he posted a photo of her, well, bending it like Beckham on Instagram, with the caption: "Mia Hamm (US football star), eat your heart out. Harper Seven taking lessons from her brothers (oh and her dad)."


There haven't been many photos of Gosling's spawn with actress Eva Mendes, but we are going to bet that the 34-year-old Canadian is a hot dad to baby Esmeralda, who was born last September.

The notoriously private actor recently said why feminism matters: "I have a little girl now and it's important to me."


Based on his speeches at award shows, it's clear that family means the world to this Oscar-winning US actor, who is father to sons Livingston, two, and Levi, seven, and daughter Vida, five.

But it sounds like Levi also knows just how important daddy's recent career renaissance is.

The 45-year-old said that Levi once told him that he would grab the Best Actor Academy Award his dad won for Dallas Buyers Club if they were to ever flee their home because of a tsunami.

"Good boy," said McConaughey.


Only time will tell if US singer-actor Justin Timberlake's son with actress Jessica Biel, three-month-old Silas Randall Timberlake, will be half as cool as his 34-year-old dad.

There hasn't been much news from the Timberlakes, so it's safe to assume that parenting has been consuming their time.


Sure, the Hollywood star's teen offspring Jaden, 16, and Willow, 14, with actress-wife Jada Pinkett Smith are a little off-kilter.

But it's nice that he supports them in all of their showbiz endeavours, which include music and films.

And let's not forget that Smith, at 46, looks pretty much the same as he did 20 years ago.

Where is that youth elixir potion and where can we get some?
