1. BEN AFFLECK
Of all the family men in Hollywood, Ben Affleck – dad to Violet, 7½, Seraphina, 4, and Samuel, 15 months – is by far your favorite. "You can just see the adoration in his eyes in pics of him playing or holding his kids," writes reader Shannon Parsons. "They look like such a happy, normal family, and it just makes me feel good to see them," adds Susan Berger.

2. BRAD PITT
Dad to a brood of six, Pitt is another fan favorite, especially in light of fiancée Angelina Jolie's double mastectomy announcement in May. "How awesome he is for standing by his woman, and his kids," says reader Pauline Serna. Adds Sarah Hensley Nelson, "It takes a special man to adopt and love kids like his own." And to be a hands-on parent! "He makes time for each of them," writes Jenny Leachman, "and he does a good job raising each one of them."

3. MATT DAMON
Proud papa to daughters Alexia, almost 15, Isabella, 7, Gia, 4½, and Stella, 2½, Matt Damon's fatherly love is "so precious," says reader Kelli Flemings. He's "hands-down" the best, adds Aisha Gutierrez. "He's taking care of his own [kids] and his wife's daughter from a previous relationship."

4. WILL SMITH
"He's always with his kids and they seem well-rounded and happy," reader Tara Evers Zabransky writes of the dad of three. Stephanie Beckwith believes he's "connected with" his family, which makes his kids Trey, 20, Jaden, 15 next month, and Willow, 12½, "seem so well behaved and in tune with themselves," adds Mary Porter-Marshock. Plus, "he doesn't use bad language, which is really hard when raising kids," she jokes.

5. DAVID BECKHAM
The sexy dad is more than just a globetrotting soccer star: he's a really focused father to his four children Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10½, Cruz, 8, and Harper, 23 months, says Dawn Karnes. "David Beckham helps his kids live a healthy lifestyle, and they always have on a smile," she writes.

6. KEITH URBAN
"My vote will always be for Keith Urban, even though we don't see much of his kids," Angela Collins explains of the country star, father to Sunday, 4½, and Faith, 2½. "You can see that he loves [his daughters] because you don't really get personal pictures of them … he doesn't flaunt his kids, he wants them to grow into their own people, not in their parents' shadows."

7. HUGH JACKMAN
"You always seem him doing stuff with his kids," Holly Remington McMahan points out of the busy dad of two. "He appears to be a very genuine, kind and loving father in interviews and in photos I have seen," Claudia Bates adds. But it's the fun factor for Oscar, 13, and Ava, 7½, that really puts him in the Top 10. "In almost every pic of him out and about he's playing with his kids, or holding their hand or giving them a piggyback ride," notes Vanessa Vega-Rivera.

8. JOHNNY DEPP
It's rare to see Depp's children Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11 – but that's why readers love him as a dad. "He's one of the few who doesn't sell his kids' images to promote himself; he shields his kids from that and puts what's best for them first," writes Ashley Vaughn. Plus, "he makes movies that they can watch," Maria Manuela Coelho adds.

9. NEIL PATRICK HARRIS
He has his hands full with little ones Gideon and Harper, 2½, but Neil Patrick Harris is "a loving father who takes time out to care for his twins," says Antoinette Perez. His partner, David Burtka, gets props from readers, too. "Both men … are constantly seen smiling, toting their kids to parks and the like," writes Holly Ann Simon. "They inspire me not only as parents but as a couple."

10. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
The Commander-in-Chief has the country's top job, but it's his role as dad that stands out to many, like Alexa Nicole. "He has one stressful job," she writes, but "he continues to be a great husband to Michelle and an amazing father to both his daughters," Malia, 14, and Sasha, 12.
