Scroll through the photo gallery to find which dashing daddies made the cut. And you’ve been warned – it’s about to get hot in here…
#1 Allan Wu
Dad to… Jonas, 10, and Sage, 12
Is currently… Divorced and dating
Fitness is king to American-born Chinese actor and host, Allan Wu, 45, who hits the gym daily to keep his body and mind in top form. And it clearly shows – the Amazing Race Asia host has the ability to stop traffic by just removing his shirt and parading his eight-pack abs. Previously married to ex-media personality and newly-minted public servant Wong Li Lin, 45, Wu has not only passed on his chiselled good looks to his kids, but also his love for sports. “From a very young age, I’ve always encouraged them to be active and healthy, and participating in sports is a great way to keep their interest level up,” Wu once said in an interview with SmartParents. We do have some bad news though, Wu is off the market as he’s currently dating former Miss World Malaysia beauty queen Yvonne Lee, 29. (Photo: Allan Wu Instagram)
#2 James Marsden
Dad to… William Luca Costa-Marsden, 4, Mary James, 12, and Jack Holden, 16
Is currently… Divorced and dating
We will always remember a young James Marsden as Ricky, the boy next door in Second Noah, a TV series which kick-started his acting career. Since then Marsden, 44, has gone on to meatier roles in the X-Menfranchise and currently stars in HBO's Westworld. His suave and dapper appearance has also clinched him heartthrob roles in The Notebook and Enchanted, where he played Prince Charming himself. Since his divorce from actress Mary Elizabeth Linde, 45, in 2011, Marsden has been connected to a string of ladies and is currently dating British singer Edei. But this doesn’t stop the doting dad from spending time with his kids. Earlier this year, he stepped out with his 16-year-old son Jack at the SAG Awards, looking debonair in matching bow-ties and suits. Ahh… swoon. (Photo: James Marsden Instagram)
#3 Zheng Geping
Dad to… Calvert Tay, 17, and Tay Ying, 21
Is currently… Married to fellow Mediacorp artiste Hong Huifang, 57.
If anyone can make an uncle status look cool, it would have to be Channel 8 star Zheng Geping. A few years back, the 53-year-old, inspired the term “hunkle” when he defied nature and unleashed his greatest achievement – an incredibly-ripped bod that would put most millennial men to shame. Even though the media has tried to compare his hotness with other local actors, including Chen Tianwen, nobody can quite match up to the “hunkle” himself. We’re guessing that even as both of Zheng’s kids enter the entertainment industry it will be hard to overshadow their dad, in more ways than one. (Photo: Zheng Geping Instagram)
#4 Christopher Lee
Dad to… Zed, 3
Is currently… Married to fellow Mediacorp actress Fann Wong, 46
In an industry obsessed with youth, Christopher Lee, 46, is one of the few local actors who is able to give his younger colleagues a run for their money. Even after 22 years, Lee is still very much sought after for projects in Singapore, Malaysia, China and Taiwan. It’s definitely a testament of his undisputable acting chops, but it also helps that he’s easy on the eyes. Not only did Lee totally embrace being an older dad, but he’s also rocking those salt-and-pepper streaks in his hair, if we say so ourselves. Alas, the King of Caldecott only has eyes for his Queen, Fann, and insists that beneath all that charm, he is just a family man at heart. “Family life allows me to focus on my wife and child because my happiness doesn’t just come from my acting. To care for and protect those I love bring me greater satisfaction,” Lee once said in an interview. (Photo: https://alchetron.com)
#5 Aaron Kwok
Dad to… Chant, 1 month old
Is currently…Married to Moka Fang, 30.
It seems like God broke the mould when he created Hong Kong Cantopop crooner Aaron Kwok. The Heavenly King, doesn’t only have a voice that can make women weak in their knees, but he’s also been quite the looker, and has been only getting better with age. At 51, Kwok’s slick style and ageless graceful charm caught the eye of model-actress Moka Fang, who is 21 years his junior. Kwok finally shed his bachelor status in April this year when he married Fang after a whirlwind romance and welcomed a beautiful baby girl soon after. We wish the new dad all the best!

#6 David Beckham
Dad to… Harper Seven, 6, Cruz, 12, Romeo, 15 and Brooklyn, 18.
Is currently… Married to Victoria Beckham, 43.
David Beckham, 42, definitely needs no introduction, but we will do one just for fun. Sexy sportsman, underwear model and devoted dad – it’s true what they say, nobody can bend it like Beckham. As a young athlete, he stunned the world on the soccer field with his insane footwork and has continued to one-up himself for the past three decades as a soccer coach, brand ambassador and philanthropist. His best side though: Being a hands-on dad to his four kiddos, especially his youngest and only daughter, Harper. The doting dad makes it no secret that his little princess has him wrapped around her little finger, and he loves every bit of it. (Photo: GQ)
#7 Chris Hemsworth
Dad to… Twins Sasha and Tristan, 3, and India Rose, 5.
Is currently…Married to Elsa Pataky, 41.
We might just never forgive Hollywood heartthrob Chris Hemsworth, 34, for almost passing up the opportunity to play Thor. But honestly, who can stay mad at those mesmerising blue eyes, bulging biceps, dusty blonde hair and laid-back Australian drawl? Hemsworth is currently kicking box-office ass as the hammer-wielding Norse God in Thor: Ragnarok, but in real life he admits he isn’t immune to the many challenges of fatherhood. “They [the children] are absolute sponges and pick up all the good and bad things you do, like the occasional swear word. You’re a role model whether you like it or not,” he once said in an interview. (Photo: Popsugar.com)
#8 Idris Elba
Dad to… Isan, 15, and Winston, 3.
Is currently… Divorced and dating
There’s a reason why the world is rooting for British superstar Idris Elba to play the next James Bond, and it might have something to do with the fact that he cuts a striking figure in a three-piece suit. Did we also mention the DJ-turned-actor sports a chiselled physique, a charming accent, and a look that can penetrate your soul? We could be here all day listing the many ways Elba, 45, makes our heart skip a beat, but in real life it’s his teenage daughter Isan who keeps her old man grounded. “My daughter is proud of me but at the same time she's like don't touch me, don't come anywhere near me, but I love you dad,” Elba once said in an interview. Guess even super-sexy fathers can’t keep up with their teenagers. (Photo: vanity fair)
#9 Channing Tatum
Dad to… Everly, 4.
Is currently… Married to actress and dancer Jenna Dewan Tatum, 36.
Actor Channing Tatum, 37, first made us swoon with his sexy strip routine in the movie Magic MikeXXL, but did you know dance was what brought him and his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum together? As co-stars in the 2006 dance movie Step Up, Mr and Mrs Tatum literally gyrated their way into each other’s hearts. While we’re used to watching Tatum take his clothes off – preferably to some slow music – we also enjoy watching him play dress up. Especially when he wore an adult-sized orange onesie last Halloween – complete with ears and a bunny tail – so that he could twin with his toddler. Cue the awws… (Photo: www.ew.com)
#10 Patrick Dempsey
Dad to… Twins Sullivan and Darby, 10, and Tallula, 15.
Is currently… Married to makeup artist Jillian Fink
He may no longer be Dr McDreamy in the hit TV show Grey’s Anatomy, but every time we see Patrick Dempsey, 51, we are reminded of why he earned that titled in the first place. Maybe it's his laid-back look and soft-spoken demeanour. Or that there’s a little bit of a bad boy quality to him since he enjoys to racing cars in his spare time. We can’t quite put our finger on it, but all we know is that McDaddy is one major dreamboat, and we’re glad he’s here to stay. Also happy to have him back is his wife of 18 years Jillian Fink. After a brief separation three years ago, Dempsey and Fink decided to reconcile and work hard at their marriage to set a good example for their kids. ““Our marriage was not something I was prepared to let go of. I didn’t feel like we had done all the work. And we both wanted to do that work. That’s where it started,” Dempsey said in an interview. (Photo: theodysseyonline.com)
#11 Justin Timberlake
Dad to… Silas, 2.
Is currently… Married to actress Jessica Biel, 35.
If anyone can bring sexy back after becoming a father it would have to be the incredibly-talented Justin Timberlake, 36. Why? Because, despite his mega-star status, Timberlake never shies away from an opportunity to poke fun of himself – and we love him for that. In fact, he’s been getting major cred as goofball ever since having a kid. Just a few months back, the funny daddy shared an Instagram of him wearing a pair of neon sickle-brick glasses with the caption, “When you're the only Dad at the mid-morning play-class, if you stay any longer than 20 minutes... THIS IS YOUR FATE #dadlife,”. A great sense of humour is a must-have if you want to reach hottie status, right ladies? (Photo: Amazon.com)
#12 Lenny Kravitz
Dad to… Zoë Kravitz, 28.
Is currently… Divorced and dating
It’s hard to believe that the bad boy of the rock world is 53 – which means he has been a sex symbol for more than three decades now! Makes sense though, just look at that olive-brown skin, smouldering stare and luscious lips. Lenny Kravitz is not just hot…he is sizzling hot! And if that’s not enough, the supremely-talented singer also writes and composes all of his songs and plays every single instrument on his albums. We’re just glad the superstar passed on his super genes to his one and only child Zoë. She is not only the perfect combination of dad and mum, actress Lisa Bonet, 49, but equally as talented as both of them. (Photo: www.Popsugar.com)
Is currently…Married to human rights lawyer, Amal Clooney, 39.
We have to admit – we are extremely excited that we can finally include actor and director George Clooney, 51, to our hot dad list. After all, he is the original Hollywood heartthrob! After living life as a carefree, but committed bachelor for 24 years, Clooney broke hearts all around the world when he tied the knot with his exotic lawyer wife Amal in 2014. The couple welcomed twins in June with Clooney being candid about his struggles as a much older dad. Speaking of his diaper changing dilemmas, the Ocean's Eleven star recently joked in an interview, “'I don't know how it goes in as a carrot and it comes out the way it comes out! It was shocking... it was a horror film. I think it's going to be that way forever now and it was terrifying!”. (Photo: www.filmrise.com)
