On Father’s Day, a Look at All the Supremely Good Looking Dads in W


While most summer weekends are spent brunching, sitting in the park, and other sun-driven activities, the third Sunday of June is reserved for one particularly special activity: celebrating Dad. Each year, greeting cards are distributed, sentimental Instagrams posted, and a bevy of dad-friendly extracurriculars to be had—grilling, golfing, et al. This year saw the ushering in of a particularly notable subset of humans celebrating the holiday: the hot, celebrity dad. Among those marking celebrating Father’s Day today are Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake, David Beckham, and a whole bevy of other very, well, hot dads. In honor of the special day, a look back at some of the most talented—and genetically blessed—dads in the pages of W.
