We celebrate hot dads everywhere with a countdown of the finest A-list fathers around
Another day, another brilliant Chrissy Teigen post that’s had us all LOL-ing in the CelebsNow office.
The new mum – who welcomed her first child, baby daughter Luna, into the world just four weeks ago – is clearly aware just how hot her baby daddy, singer John Legend, is – and she isn’t afraid to brag!
The super-hot model and social media queen said what we were all thinking in her latest Instagram post, labelling All Of Me signer John a ‘DILF’ – which stand for Dad I’d Like to… umm, ‘do dirty things with’.
Sharing a snap of the couple on a recent stroll with baby Luna that showed John on daddy duty with his little girl strapped to his front, Chrissy simply wrote: ‘Get it, dilf!!’
Chrissy’s 6.8 million followers clearly agreed with her, with one commenting: ‘Cutest family! And yes, he is a dilf!’
Another posted: ‘DAD GOALS.’
And, after we’d spent a good ten minutes trying to get over just how FREAKIN’ amazing Chrissy looks just one month after giving birth (where are all the sick stains and eye bags!?), we got to thinking of our favourite celebrity DIL… Erm, hot dads.
From Hollywood hotties Channing Tatum and Chris Hemsworth to homegrown talent Benedict Cumberbatch and Andy Carroll, we’ve picked the best (read: hottest) celebrity dads currently walking the planet, and compiled them in one handy picture gallery for your viewing pleasure. YOU’RE WELCOME.
So sit back, relax and enjoy these heart-throbs getting their dad-thing on. Altogether now: DILF! DILF! DILF!
See our pick of the hottest celebrity dads in the gallery below…
The hearts of Cumberbitches the world over were shattered when Benedict announced last year that not only was he getting married, but that his wife was pregnant. The actor welcomed a baby boy into the world with wife Sophie Hunter in June 2015. The name of this sprog? We were hoping for something suitably grand – Tarquin? Xavier?? – but instead Ben and Soph settled for Christopher. Lovely.

Having put his bad boy ways firmly behind him, the guy formerly known as Marky Mark is now a devoted family man, and has four children with wife Rhea Durham; Brendan, Grace, Ella and Michael. Having had a tough childhood himself, he recently confessed: ‘I think the most important thing is to always be involved in every aspect of their life.’

Imagine Thor being your dad! That’s the case for India Rose, three, and 20-month-old twin boys Tristan and Sasha, who call Chris Hemsworth dad. But the pleasure is all Chris’: he recently told E! News that being a father was ‘the best,’ saying ”I just have so much fun doing it.’ Nawww!

In an Instagram post that made our ovaries ache, Andy Carroll announced the birth of his son with Billi Mucklow with this too-cute black and white snap. We can’t wait to see the tiny tot – who the couple have named Arlo – sporting a baby-bun like his footballer daddy.

Sure, Kanye has said and done many questionable things in his time (we’ve only just forgiven him for the whole Taylor Swift/VMAs debacle), but the sight of the rapper cradling daughter North West is enough to soften us. And she’s had the same effect on Yeezy – who is also dad to baby Saint with Kim K – himself. The star confessed to GQ: ‘Family is super cool…going home and getting on the ﬂoor and playing with your child is super cool.’ Aww, sweet!

We’ve loved Jamie Redknapp ever since he became one half of the second most popular footballer/singer couples of the 90s (after Posh ‘n’ Becks, of course) with now-wife Louise. Nowadays, as a stand-up family man (the couple have two children together, Charley and Beau), nothing much has changed.

We doubt we’re alone when we say that Brad was one of our first true loves and, even at the ripe old age of 52, he’s only getting better – although no doubt playing dad to no less than SIX kids alongside wife Angelina Jolie can account for the increasing number of grey hairs the actor sports nowadays.

Baby mama Blake Lively shared this too-hot snap of lovely Ryan carrying little girl James. SWOON.
Of fatherhood, the Deadpool star recently said: ‘’m not one for vomiting declarations of sentiment out across the airways, but when we had that baby, I fell more in love with my wife than I’d ever been in my entire life.’ DOUBLE SWOON
Oh, Ryan Gosling. Just the mere mention of his name always makes us come over all funny. But now that he’s a dad (girlfriend Eva Mendes gave birth to their second daughter, Amada, little sister to one-year-old Esmerelda) the feeling is only getting stronger. The couple are notoriously private when it comes to their little ones and no pictures of Amada or Esmerelda have been shared, but surely it’s an Athena poster waiting to happen?

Just like the bloke in that Vanessa Williams song, we’ve gone and saved the best for last. Saint David (as we like to call him) is not only arguably the hottest celebrity dad on the planet, but the hottest celebrity full stop. When he’s not sitting with Harper on the front row at wife Victoria’s fashion show or getting gunged with sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz on stage at the Kids Choice Awards, he’s embarrassing his oldest offspring on Instagram – and looking mighty delicious whilst he’s at it. What. A. Guy.
