17 Sexy TV Dads We Want to Marry in Real Life (PHOTOS)

Laura Anastasia | Feb 6, 2016 TV

No matter how many weirdos crop up on Tinder, we know the perfect guy is out there. In fact, even though us who are already married can name 17 of them right now. All we have to do is turn to our fave TV shows through the years. From Mike Brady to Deacon Claybourne, we've been in love with some of these hot TV dads for decades; others for just a few years. 

Our favorite TV dads are gorgeous, loyal, sensitive, and funny, not to mention great with kids. If they weren't fictional, we'd be at the altar right now.
