13 Celebs Who Couldn't Wait to Be Dads (PHOTOS)


Thought baby fever was a strictly female phenomenon? Not a chance! Men, too, are often overcome with the overwhelming and visceral desire to have a baby -- even those hunky male celebrities we see on the big screen. Quite a few of Hollywood's leading men have spoken about their urge to start a family, and the satisfaction and gratitude they felt when their wishes were finally granted. 

While many of these proud Hollywood papas conceived their children the old-fashioned way, others, like Hugh Jackman, opted to adopt while some, like Ricky Martin and Tuc Watkins, enlisted the help of surrogates to bring their babies into the world. But no matter the means through which their bundles of joy arrived, these famous fellas found fatherhood to be their most challenging, fulfilling, and life-affirming role.
