Ah fatherhood. Some men are great at it, some men should never, ever pursue it. What is it about a man that's great with kids, though? What makes a man that is willing to get down and dirty with children so sexy?
Is it because he is showing vulnerability? Is it because women are predisposed to seek out their ideal biological mate and a man who loves kids is obviously a prime candidate? I don't know the answers to these important questions, only that it is sexy as hell when a man loves kids. That's why this week's Thirsty Thursday is dedicated to steamy Hollywood actors whose appeal increased tenfold once they became dads.
5. Josh Duhamel
Josh Duhamel is a man's man. He's been around forever and still manages to ooze sex appeal. Gals and gays the world over mourned the day he married Fergie and became the real-life Ken to her Barbie. Then they went and produced their gorgeous offspring, Axl, and heads exploded as no one was prepared for that much cute.
4. Cam Gigandet
Most people know Cam as the vampire-tracker James in Twilight. I prefer to remember him as Jack, Christina's sexy roommate in Burlesque. Either way, though, I believe his best role yet is that of "dad." He's got the baby-wearing down to a science and has never looked better. He gets my vote for best accessory!
3. Ryan Reynolds
I've been in love with Ryan Reynolds for 13 years, ever since Van Wilder hit theaters. I've followed his career since then and have loved nearly everything he's done. (Yes, even his turn as Deadpool in the Wolverine movie). Then he married ScarJo and broke my heart in two. Then he and ScarJo split and my heart leapt with joy! Then he married ANOTHER blonde bombshell, Blake Lively, and had a perfect daughter to complete their perfect little family. I'm not bitter, I swear...
2. Chris Hemsworth
There has never in the world been a cuter family that Chris Hemsworth's. He and his wife, Elsa Pataky, have three children: their adorable 3-year-old daughter India, and twin sons, Sasha and Tristan. They are so freaking adorable together it almost makes me want to puke. But I won't. That he is such a family man makes this sexiest man alive even sexier. No joke.
1. Justin Baldoni
Justin is just about my favorite actor out there right now. For one, he's in my favorite new show, Jane the Virgin. He's also amazing on social media and updated fans about his gorgeous wife's state all through her pregnancy. He's also just created a new app that's soul purpose is to spread good news and happiness. So, honestly, what's not to love? Oh, just wait until you see him with his daughter. Your uterus will explode.
