Think pink: Chris Hemsworth welcomed the arrival of a baby daughter last month.
Don't confuse Chris Hemsworth with his younger beefcake brother Liam "The Hunger Games" Hemsworth. The elder Aussie hottie has taken Hollywood by storm with blockbuster hits such as "Snow White & the Huntsman," "The Avengers" and "Thor." His domestic life also made headlines this year when he became a first-time father. Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky welcomed the arrival of daughter India Rose on May 11. She's clearly a daddy's girl, as he proclaimed to the press, "She's the cutest thing ever."
There's something super sexy about fatherhood. Not only does it tame the wildest bachelors (think Matthew McConaughey and Ben Affleck), but it also shows a softer side to men--especially when they have daughters. When David Beckham welcomed the arrival of his first baby girl after having three sons, the soccer superstar proudly announced, "Harper is so beautiful."
In honor of Father's Day this Sunday, we've put together a video tribute to several top pops in Hollywood. May their sons and daughters continue to enlighten and enrich their lives. Plus, if you're looking for something special for the father in your life, we've also included a selection of the lastest skincare products formulated especially for men. Enjoy!
Hunky homebody: Matthew McConaughey finally settled down this month when he married longtime girlfriend Camila Alves, mother of his son Levi and daughter Vida.
From cad to dad: Ben Affleck broke a lot of hearts during his bachelor days, but the current ladies in his life (mom Jennifer Garner, and daughters Violet and Seraphina) melt his heart, along with the arrival of baby boy Samuel last February.
Doting dad: In between filmmaking and global humanitarian efforts, Brad Pitt and fiancée Angelina Jolie still put their family of six first. Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox enjoy lots of outings together.
My three sons (and daughter): Super dad David Beckham and wife Victoria Beckham dote on their sons Cruz, Brooklyn and Romeo. But daddy's little girl, daughter Harper Seven born last July, holds a special place in his heart.
America's got talented twins: "America's Got Talent" host Nick Cannon and his wife Mariah Carey doubled their pleasure and family with the births of "Roc & Roe" son Moroccan and daughter Monroe.
Blockbuster dad: Although rumors continue to circulate that his marriage might be on the rocks to Jada Pinkett Smith, "Men in Black 3" star Will Smith still openly gushes about his three children--Willow, Jaden and Trey.
