You've seen him on the playground. At swim class. At preschool pick-up. Everyone knows one: the sexy dad. Not only is he absolutely adorable with his children, but he's super easy on the eyes. "Wait a minute," you think to yourself. "My partner is a dad. And I think he's pretty sexy... oh my God..." Is your partner the sexy dad in your group?! Is that a good thing? Is it a bad thing? Should you be concerned? Well, let's learn a little more and see. (TL;DR version: maybe, yes, no, no.)
Let's be very clear here: a sexy dad is more than just a hot bod and a pretty face. A father can look like Brad Pitt, Idris Elba, and Jason Momoa rolled into one, but if the dude isn't an attentive partner who actively participates in parenting their child, he can never wear the mantle of "sexy dad." Take Don Draper, for example, Sexy. Check (like, a million checks). A dad. Check. But he's a terrible dad and an even worse partner, ergo Don Draper is not a sexy dad. See how this works? To be sure, once a woman becomes a mother, the sexy bar is raised, for anyone who's going to keep up with her can't skate by on a six pack and charm.
Friends, if your man is the sexy dad of your group, be proud! As long as nobody is being a creepy goober about it, rest easy knowing that your crew is merely appreciating his fineness and your excellent taste. Here's some surefire signs that you're the envy of your mom squad.
