PEOPLE's Super Exclusive (and Very Official) Sexiest Man Alive Dads' Club

“Being witness to the birth of my children is the biggest and best thing ever,” Elba, who has a 16-year-old daughter, Isan, and a 4-year-old son, Winston (both from previous relationships), told PEOPLE in his Sexiest Man Alive 2018 interview. “I’m super doting, big hugs, kisses, lots of love-yous. I’m sure my daughter’s like, ‘All right Dad, chill out.’ My son is still at that age where he loves a cuddle.”

Our 2015 Sexiest Man Alive is a superstar dad – he’s the proud father to Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper. (Though not all of his kids were super-impressed by his title: “Brooklyn was the one who was like, ‘Are you sure it’s not me that’s meant to be there today?’ ” he joked to PEOPLE.)

From walking on the treadmill with his son in his arms to whipping up dinosaur birthday cakes, our 2014 SMA is basically Super Dad to children Tristan, Sasha and India.

In 2013, The Voice coach was named PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, and believe it or not, he’s achieved even more greatness since, welcoming daughters Dusty Rose and Gio Grace with wife Behati Prinsloo.

Here is what PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive 2007 has to say about fatherhood: “The only way I can describe it – it sounds stupid, but – at the end of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, you know how his heart grows like five times?” he told PARADE. “Everything is full; it’s just full all the time.” (Be still our hearts.) The actor has three daughters and a stepdaughter with wife Luciana.

The 2005 SMA victor, who has three children with wife Camila Alves, told GQ that being a father is “the one thing he’s always wanted” to be. “Never is a man more of a man than when he is the father of a newborn,” he said. “You know what’s important. I definitely got more selfish. And at the same time, I think I got more compassionate.”

“Having a child, and having a family of my own — which is a miracle and something I’ve always dreamt of — has opened me up even more, I guess, to the day, and to be present,” the 2011 SMA said in an interview with NPR after welcoming daughter Lea with then-girlfriend Irina Shayk.

Before Reynolds welcomed daughter James with wife Blake Lively in 2014, the actor was just your standard super-hot actor, nabbing the Sexiest Man Alive title in 2010. But in 2016, PEOPLE upgraded his title to Sexiest Dad Alive following the births of daughters James and Inez. “What?! I mean come on! I mean scientifically speaking, what’s sexier than a man that fornicates, producers children and then looks surprised about it,” he joked about his cover to Jimmy Fallon. Baby No. 3 for Reynolds and wife Blake Lively is on the way.

The two-time SMA — and new-ish dad to twins Ella and Alexander — has high hopes for his little ones. “I want them to be happy,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “I want them to have a sense of humor. I want them to be interested in things. I want them to be compassionate about other people’s plights. Because that’s the thing, you know? You have to have some sort of empathy.”
