Just in time for Father’s Day, we’re drooling over these hot daddies…

Boris Kodjoe
How many ways do we love Boris Kodjoe? We’re not sure we’re able to print all the ways. He and his former “Soul Food” co-star wife Nicole Ari Parker have two kids together. We’d like to ask Parker, “What’s it like?”

Now a proud father of three, Will Smith has been a cutie since his days as the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Over the years he filled out and grew into those cute ears. No wonder our July 2010 cover girl Jada Pinkett-Smith can’t get enough of her man.

We’ll always remember sexy Beninese model and actor Djimon Hounsou dancing in next to nothing in Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do” music video. Who knew that twenty years later he would be a hot dad, among other titles.

When Barack Obama became the fourth youngest President he also became the hottest President the United States has ever had. That the leader of the free world makes time to be a doting dad to his daughters Malia and Sasha makes him even hotter.
