David Beckham

“so I could be Harper’s sister”

DB often gets a mention where parenting is concerned, for no other reason than he’s a doting dad and looks cool doing it. Head of a pretty skillful clan - little Cruz is a singer of Bieber-type talent and Brooklyn is already a photographer - David has even been seen to plaid Harper’s braids. N’aww.

Chris Hemsworth

‘Because he takes his kids surfing ON HIS BACK”

When your dad spends his spare time bulking for movies to play gods and superheroes, one of the perks is getting carried around. Follow him on Instagram for videos of him doing dance routines with his wife and kids.

Hamish Blake

“because he made his son a slime birthday cake”

For Sonny’s fourth birthday, the radio presenter documented his hours of baking to create the ectoplasm-spewing monster from Ghostbusters, complete with splime spout, much to his son’s delight. Dad of the year.

Jay-Z

“because you get to be on an album”

On his most recent track Jay & Beyonce’s first daughter, Blue Ivy Carter gives a name-check to her twin siblings. “Shout out to Rumi and Sir, love Blue.” Judging by her constant eyerolls, Blue thinks her parents are pretty lame. The kid has no idea.

Phil Dunphy from Modern Family

“because he brings home a llama one time”

Everyone’s favourite goofy TV dad of Modern Family fame has been on our screens for nearly a DECADE. Seriously, where is life going?!

Steve Irwin

“an Aussie hero - plus I would have loved to grow up in a zoo”

Following in his wildlife warrior footsteps are offspring, Bindi and Robert, whom you can find feeding the crocs at the family zoo in Queensland.

Steve Martin

“because he’d pay for an epic wedding. Just look at Father of the Bride”

Although he’s known for his role as the dad of 12 in Cheaper by the Dozen, Martin only became a parent of one at 67. We hope his real-life daughter has a wedding like Annie Banks, with an eccentric planner like Franck.
