Chris Pratt

Why he's a hot pop: The Jurassic World star (and hubby of adorable Anna Faris), is dad to son, Jack, born nine weeks premature last year. Pratt is a double dose of silly (as Andy in Parks and Recreation) and hunky (as Starlord in Guardians of the Galaxy), and he also manages to come across funny, humble and, yes, super sexy.

Famous dad words: "I've done all kinds of cool things as an actor—I've jumped out of helicopters and done some daring stunts and played baseball in a professional stadium, but none of it means anything compared to being somebody's daddy," Pratt said during a speech at the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies last December. Awwwww.

Why he's a hot pop: Um, have you seen Magic Mike? The proud papa of daughter Everly, 2, (mom is actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum) is known for his good looks and, uh, memorable dance moves.

Famous dad words: "Fatherhood ... it teaches you a lot," he told TODAY last year. "Talking about mortality ... I have never been afraid to fly on a plane in my whole life, and now, like, getting on a plane is a big deal. Things matter. And as soon as Jenna got pregnant, everything sort of changed."

Why he's a hot pop: OK, maybe he's not technically a Hollywood hunk but Prince Charming? You bet. The husband of Kate Middleton and royal dad of two (George, who turns 2 on July 22, and Charlotte, born May 2), is poised, handsome and may be the future king.

Famous dad words: "As any new parent knows, you're only too happy to show off your new child and, you know, proclaim that he is the best looking or the best everything," William told CNN in a 2013 interview. "It's nice that people want to see George—I'm just glad he wasn't screaming his head off the whole way through."

Ashton Kutcher

Why he's a hot pop: The model-turned-actor is famous for playing lovable lunks, punking celebs on MTV and Steve Jobs. Now he's known for being dad to daughter Wyatt Isabelle, born Sept. 30, 2014 (mom is That '70s Show co-star Mila Kunis).

Famous dad words: "It's epic. It's the greatest privilege life has to offer ... I can't ... I have no words," he told the Australian Kyle and Jackie O show in February. "The first thing I did when she was born was, I called my parents and I apologized because I realized how much they care. I don't think you know that until you have a kid ... it's magnificent."

Justin Timberlake

Why he's a hot pop: From boy band to solo superstardom, Timberlake's talent and humor (see his multiple Saturday Night Live appearances) have made him popular with the ladies everywhere. And when he posted that pic on Instagram kissing his wife, Jessica Beal's, pregnant belly? Jealously meters rose everywhere. The couple welcomed son Silas Randall in April.

Famous dad words: "I want to thank my best friend, my favorite collaborator, my wife Jessica at home," Timberlake said during a speech at the iHeartRadio Awards a few weeks before Silas's arrival. "Honey, I can't wait to see our greatest creation yet. Don't worry, Daddy's heading home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on."

Ryan Reynolds

Why he's a hot pop: Married to the equally hot Blake Lively, Reynolds was People magazine's sexiest man alive in 2010, and, now that he's the father to daughter James, born in December 2014, he might be sexier than ever.

Famous dad words: "There have been times where I woke up, literally had no idea I had been walking for five minutes," Reynolds told E! News in March. "But you love it. You wake up in the middle of the night, you got a big stupid smile on your face. I was telling someone else that. Anything else that woke you up every 45 minutes, you'd kill it. But when it's a baby, it's the best thing that ever happened to you."

Why he's a hot pop: The NBA star is dad (with wife Savannah Brinson, his high school sweetheart) to three children: sons LeBron Jr., 10, and Bryce Maximus, who turns 8 on June 14, and a girl, Zhuri Nova, born last October.

Famous dad words: "Zhuri hurry up and get here so your daddy and 2 brothers can annoy you! Lol," James wrote on Instagram.

Chris Hemsworth

Why he's a hot pop: Have you seen Thor? Or Rush? Or the new Star Trek movies? OK, then you aren't surprised that the Australian actor has to be the hottest dad at pre-school pick-up. People's Sexiest Man Alive in 2014, he's married to Elsa Pataky, and dad to daughter, India, 3, and twin boys Tristan and Sasha, who turned 1 in March.

Famous dad words: "I think it makes you less selfish, because it's no longer about you," Hemsworth tells E Online. "It can't be. It's about someone else, which is refreshing. It's nice to not spend all your time thinking about your own problems and garbage up there and I just have so much fun doing it. It's the best. And now I'm a bit more choosy, I think, with when I work and how I work because it better be worthwhile to take me away from them."

Idris Elba

Idris Elba

Why he's a hot pop: The British actor gained plenty of fans via his roles in TV shows and films like The Wire, Luther, Pacific Rim and Mandela, among others. Already dad to teenage daughter, Isan, Elba and his girlfriend Naiyana Garth welcomed a son, Winston, on April 16, named for Elba's father who passed away.

Famous dad words: "More than anything you have to make time to be with your children," he tells British Cosmopolitan. "It's something I battle a lot because of my career, because as much as it's nice to be busy and working, ultimately children don't raise themselves. You've got to be there to help them and guide them through it. That's one thing I try my very best to do ... I love being a dad, its an important part of my life."

Ryan Gosling

Why he's a hot pop: If you need to question why Gosling is hot, you've clearly never seen The Notebook, Crazy, Stupid, Love or Blue Valentine. He and partner, Eva Mendes, welcomed daughter Esmeralda Amada (hey, girl!) last September.

Famous dad words: The press-shy actor doesn't open up about his personal life, but pics have been snapped of the actor with "Esme" written (or is that tattooed?) on his knuckles. "Ryan sings to the baby," a source tells E! News. "He loves it. Sometimes he'll make up his own songs and include her name in them. It's very sweet."
