As Father’s Day approaches, we can’t help but think of what gifts to get for our dads to thank them for all of the thoughtful things they’ve done for us in the past year.
Speaking of dads, how can we not give credit to the following famous men who’ve remained ever so charming (if not even more irresistible) now that they’ve started their own families.
If there’s one adage that these well-known dads can attest to, it’s that men are really like wine — some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.
And we’re keeping the hottest ones in our gallery, so slide through to see who’s made it to our Father’s Day list this year. Now who’s your favourite daddy?
If you’re following actress Fann Wong on Instagram, you’ll notice that her hubby Christopher Lee is — without a doubt — a doting dad.
The busy 45-year-old dad (who was also on our list last year) often splits his time between overseas shoots and taking care of their son Zed Lee (better known as Zed Zed).
The family often spends time touring animal farms and taking long leisure walks in the parks. A man who takes good care of his family AND loves them unconditionally?
Now that’s a keeper.

Rumours of a possible romance have been surrounding actor Edison Chen and model Shu Pei Qin for quite some time now but neither party has officially confirmed their relationship status.
That’s not until a photo popped up this week on Edison’s Facebook, showing him carrying an infant and surrounded by Shu Pei and his family.
The portrait, which included a banner that read “Alaia’s 100”, seemed to have confirmed the duo’s status as mum and dad. It is nonetheless a joyous moment for the 36-year-old actor who was smiling widely and brimming with pride as a new dad.
Now what kind of parent will this wild one be, you wonder? Read our little black book on the stars to find out!

Scroll through Allan Wu’s Instagram account and it’s easy to tell that the television host is a huge fitness enthusiast.
From watersports to weightlifting, Allan gets his rock hard abs from all the time he spends working out. But that doesn’t mean that he neglects his children Sage and Jonas Wu.
In fact, he considers them his “greatest gifts” (awww). In one particular Instagram photo, he wrote: “When a child is born, the parent is bestowed with his or her greatest gift. And greatest responsibility.”
And yes, one of his biggest goals in life is to be remembered as a great dad. Sweet.

Hunkle exemplar Zheng Ge Ping – who made it to our Hot Dads list in 2015 – has dominated our television screens since the late ’80s.
But it’s only when he entered his late 40s that he decided to beef up. Since then, the actor has been diligently working out at the gym to maintain his six-pack bod.
In short, Ge Ping is the best example to prove that men can still get fit regardless of his age.
Besides spending time with his family, he also regularly works out with his son Calvert Tay, emphasising the importance of keeping their bodies in shape.

What’s cookin’, good-lookin’? After his split with ex-wife Cecilia Cheung in in 2011, Nicholas Tse has been keeping himself busy with film acting and television programme hosting.
Famous for his bad boy image, Nicholas is also known as an avid chef with two Chinese food travelogue shows under his belt, even appearing recently on Taiwanese celebrity host Dee Hsu’s show to present his masterful cooking skills. He’s got the looks and the chef chops…that’s one cook we’ll definitely kiss.
Fatherhood-wise, Nicholas occasionally meets up with his children Lucas and Quintus Tse for family gatherings, although Cecilia has reportedly been barring Nicolas and his mother Deborah Li from meeting the kids.

Known to be a man of few smiles and spoken words, Yu Wu is actually quite an affectionate hubby.
Just pop over to his Instagram to have a look how he poses goofily next to his wife Joanne Peh.
The caring parents are very protective of their children’s identity as they’re always making sure that the faces of their #BabyQi and #QiDiDi (that’s how they call their offsprings on Instagram) aren’t exposed.
Kudos to safeguarding their privacy!

Some men age better than others. Somehow, they just do. Maybe it’s good genes; perhaps it’s good grooming and diet habits.
Whatever it is, former actor Edmund Chen (Xiang Yun’s husband) is the perfect poster boy for men who just won’t age.
He’s still got his sunshine boy smize and baby face (which is irresistible to a light pinch, by the way).
When standing next to his children Chen Yixi and Chen Yixin, we bet he may even be mistaken as their sibling (don’t you wish for the same too?).

Blessed with chiselled features and bulging biceps, Shaun Chen is easily one of the most attractive actors in Singapore’s entertainment scene.
Whether he’s out playing badminton in his workout outfit or gracing a red carpet event in his suit, the dishy and stylish dad never fails to win over his fans’ hearts.
Scroll through his Instagram feed and you’ll also see that Shaun frequently shares photos of his family outings with his wife Celine (who’s expecting their second child) and one-year-old daughter Nellie Chen.

Another HerWorld Hot Dads alumni, Andie Chen is the epitome of dads (and dad-to-bes).
According to his Instagram, Andie spends quite some time with his two kids (Aden and Avery). From playing piggybacks to playing nanny (or rather, manny) even while at work, Andie is definitely a hard-working dad to love.

He might still look like that boy-next-door, but actor-host Ben Yeo turns 38 this year, and is a proud dad to Javier, 8, and Jairus, 5.
The cool and young dad often takes to his Instagram account to show his affection to his kids, including practicing football and piano with them.

Love your man serious, successful and in suits? Then you’ll probably like Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu’s hubby Wang Xiao Fei.
The Chinese entrepreneur, who wedded Barbie in 2010, had named his latest boutique hotel, S Hotel in Taipei after his wife.
Earlier this week, the loving pair was seen appearing at the hotel’s grand opening ceremony.
Despite his busy work schedule, Xiao Fei still makes sure that he flies back for family reunion events like their first-born Wang Hsi-Yueh’s birthday celebration in April this year.
