Celebrating dads – famous fathers we absolutely adore

Every dad deserves recognition for all that they do. But these dads are special – why? Because they are famous. And sexy. And they let us into their private lives through the world of social media.

And thus, today, as we honour the special men in our lives, let’s also take a trip down Hollywood Lane and swoon over some of the swarthiest of all daddy celebrities.

Ryan Reynolds


Why do we love Ryan? First of all, he is gorgeous. Second of all, he is hilarious (one glance at his Twitter feed and his attempt to put together an Ikea cot proves it). And finally, he is real.

He admits to making parenting mistakes (like accidentally wearing his baby the wrong way) but we know he is a doting dad to his daughter, James. The soon-to-be father of two has never been shy about wanting a big family and we cannot wait for the announcement that baby Lively-Reynolds #2 has arrived!

Tom Fletcher

Morning jams with my boy.

He’s funny, talented and quite frankly, McAwesome. And his sons are following in their father’s footsteps. Tom Fletcher, with his equally awesome and down-to-earth wife, Giovanna, has two sons – Buddy and Buzz. Check out our favourite Fletcher moments including Giovanna’s post about real mum’s bodies and that time Tom and his son had a laughing contest and it was the sweetest thing in the world.

Hugh Jackman

We’re thrilled to be hosting the #gcfestival for the 5th year! September 24th, Central Park. ⭕️

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). And, if you’ve ever watched the movie Real Steel, then you will love him even more.

And while Hugh doesn’t share too many photos of his kids on social media (understandably so), he is more than willing to share happy snaps of himself with wife Deb.

Matthew McConaughey

He’s a sensational actor but behind the scenes he is also an amazing dad to three little stunners – Levi, Vita and Livingston. And he constantly credits his beautiful wife, Camila Alves, for keeping the household together. Any man who can admit that deserves a medal in our books.

Michael Buble

He keeps us all entertained at Christmas with his classic Christmas album (come on, you know you own it) but when he’s not belting out the tunes he is busy making memories with his two sons, Noah and Elias and wife, Luisanna.

Chris Hemsworth

It’s no secret that the Babyology staff (okay, Jenna), adore the man behind Thor and not just because of his perfect body. Chris looks the epitome of a playful dad and, thanks to his darling wife, Elsa Pataky, we see plenty of sweet snaps of Chris with their three kids, Tristan, Sasha and India.

Chris and Elsa, if you are reading this, come visit me and my family. I have a playground across the road and plenty of wine in the fridge….

Justin Trudeau

We can’t compile a list of our favourite fathers without crediting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is not only the head of a country but also of a beautiful family. Justin, with wife, Sophie, have three children – Ella-Grace Margaret, Xavier James and Hadrien.

David Beckham

Fun day with the boys watching Angels V Yankees ⚾️🇺🇸

Becks never ceases to amaze us, not only with his uncanny ability to wear underwear without even a hint of body fat, but also with the beautiful family he has created (and, of course, Victoria has something to do with this too). Becks has never  been shy of posting precious photos of himself with his three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz as well as his sweet daughter, Harper.

Channing Tatum

He’s got moves better than Jagger but it’s his moves with daughter, Everly that have us most impressed. Only the coolest of dads would don a pink onesie for the sake of his daughter.

Orlando Bloom

Sometimes even the prettiest of couples split up, a la Orlando and Miranda Kerr. Even so, the two are still working together for the sake of their son, Flynn. And this is not only awesome, but inspirational (especially for mums and dads who have also separated).

Jamie Oliver


Jamie Oliver doesn’t just want the best for his kids, he wants the best for yours, too. In his ABC series Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, he starts a food fight, promoting healthy eating and combating obesity across America. Plus, Jamie gets some serious points for unique baby names including Daisy Boo, Petal Blossom Rainbow, Poppy Honey, Buddy Bear and latest addition to the Oliver clan, River Rocket.

Hamish Blake

Omg mum if you post me drinking this isweartogod

Since becoming a father to Sonny, it’s turned into the Hamish, Sonny and Zoe show as this hilarious trio share their parenting antics online.

Justin Timberlake

And we can’t stop the feeling of adoring Justin and his little man, Silas.

Guy Sebastian

Miss the fam :-( 💙

Guy certainly deserves a place on this list simply because his two boys, Hudson and Archer, are the sweetest little dudes we’ve ever seen.

Lleyton Hewitt

Good luck @georgiabaker_ riding for @ausolympicteam in Rio #gtrain @wsportsandmedia #SwissePoweringDreams

Lleyton’s tennis career may be over but all that means for his family is that he is on full-time daddy duty! And we’re sure his three kids, Ava, Mia and Cruz, are over the moon about it!

Prince William

It’s not a celebrity dad round-up without one of the most famous fathers in the world – Prince William, who, with wife Catherine, are the epitome of class, elegance and grace… we’re just waiting for the Royal Family to post some behind-the-scenes shots of Charlotte and George in their less-than-perfect moments.

But we might have to wait a while…

We’ve got a few more amazing home grown dads to mention including James Stewart (daddy to Scout with ex-partner, Jessica Marais), Aussie cricketer Michael Clarke (daddy to Kelsey with wife, Kyly) and Sam Worthington (daddy to Rocket Zot with another son on the way with wife Lara Bingle Worthington).

Stay tuned for even more celebrity news and baby announcements as we continue to stalk celebrities and bring you the latest from Lala Land. And, to all daddies out there, Happy Father’s Day, because even if you don’t have a massive mansion, a hit record or an Oscar award, you’re still the apples of your children’s eyes. And that’s what counts.
