Always good to know more about our handsome Hollywood actors and artists. I’d say, Brad deserves the best when it comes to recognition for his efforts with his kids and the younger generation in general.
All of these guys are great Dads. My favorite is Ryan Reynolds . He seems so down to earth.
I love celebrity dads who spend quality time with their kids! I have an amazing husband who is the best dad and I’m so thankful for that!
I think as star struck as our culture is having celebrity dads really role modeling how to be an involved dad is great. They are all so publically visible with their kids too.
It’s such a blessing when celebrity dads do a good job of being a dad.It’s important because they are looked up to and serve as role models, not only other men but what women should expect as well.
All are definitely swoon-worthy! I love how devoted they all are to their kids. I think Ryan Reynolds is my favorite though.
