The 100 Hottest TV Dads In History

Let's talk about dads, shall we? More specifically TV dads. Because I simply cannot imagine I am the only one in the world who watches television and notices the hot fathers and if you say you don't notice... I don't believe you.

Sure, there are studs closer to our age in shows and I write about those guys too (ahem, John B and Paxton), but I'm just here to give credit where credit is due. And let's face it, some of these small-screen daddies are aging like a fine wine. Please don't shoot the messenger, OK? Also, this is a list of DILFs, not men who would win World's Best Dad awards, so don't come at me when you see guys like Ward Cameron on here — we're strictly talking looks, got it?

So, without further ado, I give you 100 of the hottest TV dads in history, from most recent to oldest TV shows:

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
