Daddy's Little Girls
BEN & VIOLET
"You know how as a kid, you picture yourself with a tall, handsome husband, and you imagine him cuddling your baby?" Jennifer Garner recently asked InStyle. "Ben is that, like, on crack." Still, she says 18-month-old Violet prefers Dad's company over anyone else's. "He's a teddy bear of a guy. Nothing makes me happier than to
see the two of them together and her little hands on his face."
PATRICK & TALULA
With 4-month-old twin sons Sullivan and Darby joining the household, Dempsey, 41, makes sure he spends extra one-on-one time with 5-year-old Talula. Besides bonding over biking, the Grey's Anatomy star is encouraging another shared passion. "Talula already wants to drive," the part-time racecar driver said. "She likes my silver Mercedes with the red interior. I'm glad because it's a sedan so the whole family can ride with her when she learns to drive."
HUGH & AVA
The X-Men star, 38, may play tough as nails Wolverine on the big screen, but in real life he's a big pussycat for 22-month-old Ava. "I'm like mush, I'm pathetic," he told Australia's 60 Minutes. "I already feel with Ava, that when she says, 'Daddy, I really need a car.' I'll be, 'Well, don't you need two?'"
JUDE & IRIS
Though Law, 34, and Sadie Frost have been divorced for four years, he remains a doting dad to their two sons and 6-year-old-daughter Iris, even moving into a house around the corner. "He goes to great lengths to be with them," friend Gwyneth Paltrow told PEOPLE. "After he hosted Saturday Night Live, he flew all night to get to his daughter's birthday party," she said. "Every free minute he gets, he's with his kids."
TOBEY & RUBY
New to the parenting game, the 31-year-old Spider-Man star took a shine to his precious Ruby, 7 months, right away. "I love being a dad!" Maguire has said. "I love my daughter ... yeah, it's definitely amazing! It's like everybody says, all the clichés are true – it's indescribable and you just have to be there to understand it."
TOM & SURI
"He's a family guy as well as this larger-than-life individual," pal Jada Pinkett Smith told PEOPLE of Cruise's priorities. "He knows, more than anything, that for him to be happy, he's got to have a happy home and a happy family." Even if it means taking "home" on the road. While wife Katie Holmes was shooting in Louisiana, father of three Cruise, 44, was there to keep cuddly with his newest addition, 13-month-old Suri.
