There's nothing more attractive than a man holding a baby - except when that man happens to be a smokin' Hollywood dad!
Seeing these guys parent in real life is all the more attractive to their fans, and brings a sense of reality to the people behind the movie roles.
We all know how relationships work in show business, behind the silver screen. Sometimes our favorite stars cheat, lie, grow apart, or even divulge in crazy religions that alienate their partners from their lives.
Hollywood holds a lot of opportunities, but also a lot of temptation. And these dads have felt all of it! They've tried to make their relationships work for their children's sake, but one way or another, their marriages just couldn't take the strain.
But just because they've suffered through the grueling divorce/separation process doesn't mean their lives are over. When these dads split from their wives, they are back in the dating pool and are ready to find a new partner. They haven't allowed divorce to make them bitter, and are trying to do what's best for their kids and themselves.
We've put together a fun list of the 15 divorced Hollywood dads who will likely have more babies...
15 Tom Cruise Is Always Looking For Love
Who could forget the young and in love actor jumping up and down on Oprah's couch, confessing that he was smitten with Katie Holmes? His bewildering (but sweet) declaration happened over ten years ago (in 2005) but if you were to bring it up to anyone, they'd immediately nod with an uncomfortable smile and a wrinkled forehead. It's no mystery that when Tom Cruise falls, he falls hard.
And now that he is locked solidly into his religion (Scientology...cue more wrinkled brows), we're guessing he is all the more desperate for someone to connect to.
Since his now ex-wife Katie divorced him and resigned from the church of Scientology, Tom has had to cut ties completely with his former love and his young daughter Suri for the sake of his religion.
We don't doubt that when he does find love again, hopefully within his church so he doesn't have to keep cutting ties with family members and children, that he'll be wanting to add to his brood.
He currently has three children: Connor Cruise, Isabella Jane Cruise, and Suri Cruise. Connor and Isabella are the adopted children of Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise.
14 Usher Is A Single Dad Again...
Usher is a single dad again! And while we are sad to see a second divorce under his belt, we are all secretly shouting, "Yeah!"
After divorcing his first wife, Tameka Foster, who is the mother of his two children, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely, he started dating his current wife, Grace. He would wait 8 years before asking her to marry him. Luckily for the pair, they're splitting amicably, and even issued a joint statement about their separation, noting their deep respect for one another.
But we have some doubts about whether Usher is down for the count when it comes to love, or even more children. Usher isn't quite 40, and could certainly still be in the game if he wanted to be! His two sons are so adorable, and we'd love to see more babies from this R & B stud!
13 Johnny Depp Is Too Seductive To Be Done Making Babies
Johnny Depp is known for some eccentric movie roles that have really pushed the movie industry to an incredible level of talent. And on some level, every woman wants a little piece of this Hollywood bad boy. With two marriages ending in divorce, his longest lasting relationship was with his children's mother, Vanessa Paradis, who was his partner for 14 years. Although they never married, Johnny fathered his daughter, Lily Rose, and son, John Christopher Depp III, with Vanessa.
After his brutal split with Amber Heard in 2017, complete with Amber publically outing Johnny for his domestic violence against her with photos of her face having been beaten and bruised, Johnny was thought to be dating again as his divorce was finalized.
With his kids growing up, and his newfound respect for personal relationships, we don't see why he wouldn't entertain the possibility of having another child (and a stable relationship).
12 Ben Affleck Is Sure To Have More Kids
From rumors alleging that Ben Affleck cheated on Jennifer Garner with the nanny (Christine Ouzounian) to his public affair with SNL producer Lindsay Shookus (who was also married at the time), we feel sorry for poor Jen. Not only is she truly America's sweetheart, but she really rolled up her sleeves on the work that was Ben Affleck.
He is a known heavy drinker and finally checked into a rehab centre in the later months of 2017.
Now that the Ben & Jen marriage has finally reached the stages of divorce finalization, we think it's safe to say that Jen won't be waiting around with open arms to accept Ben's recovery and get back to square 1 on their marriage. Now that he's out of rehab, and still cozying up with girlfriend Shookus, we aren't doubting a good ol' Hollywood start over with his bae - perhaps a new bundle of joy will help sober up the Gone Baby Gone star. Although, we're sure Jen had the same thought, and it seemed that Ben had other plans...
11 Brad Pitt Needs A Fresh Start
And nothing says fresh start like a fresh-faced newborn baby!
We already know that Brad doesn't shy away from a big family - after all, Brangelina had six children (3 adopted, and 3 biological). And let's face it - with genetics like that, who wouldn't volunteer to pony up with this movie star for his 7th?
After his split with Angelina, the wounds still fresh, Brad did an interview with GQ with some nice insight into where his head is at after his separation but posed for some really questionable photographs that make us thankful he was involved with acting and not modeling (see above).
With his brain needing to be rewired from the divorce, we could certainly see this Troy star settling down with a stunner like the beautiful Jennifer Lawrence for a couple more kiddies.
10 Chris Pratt's Divorce Shocked Us All, But We Don't Think He's Done Yet!
The world was shocked when the sweet #couplegoals Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced their split. After all, these two funny and gorgeous people fell in love the most ordinary way! Okay, realizing you are in love with someone after discovering their dead bug collection (which you also have) isn't that ordinary. But it had fans head over heels for the stars. They even have the cutest little boy, Jack, together.
Now that this adorable couple has split and is working on their co-parenting, we are eager to see them happier in their new relationships.
According to The Sun, Anna has already moved on and is house hunting with new beau Michael Barrett, and we're sure the Guardians Of The Galaxy star will move on as well.
Seeing as the actor is still young (in his 30s), and looking for love, we have no doubt he'll remarry and add at least one more tike to his brood! Still, we're secretly hoping Chris and Anna reconcile and have more babies together!
9 Ryan Dorsey Is Single After Filing His Second Divorce
Marrying someone just three short months after their previous engagement ends is probably not the best way to start off your marriage - but that's what happened with Ryan Dorsey and Naya Rivera. Naya was previously engaged to Big Sean, but when he called off their wedding, she reunited with Ryan and they quickly eloped to tie the knot.
14 months later, the couple welcomed their first child, Josey Hollis Dorsey, and some domestic violence. Okay, the domestic violence wasn't so welcome, but it was serious enough to get Ryan's wife charged with misdemeanor domestic violence for assaulting him on the head and lip. Naya filed the first time in November 2016 according to People, but called off the paperwork to refocus on her marriage. After the assault, however, the divorce papers are hot off the printer again and the couple is officially calling it quits.
Now that Ryan is a single dad (and probably the only one that could pull off a ponytail), we hope he finds someone whom he can be happy with as he heals from his divorce. We're positive he will settle down with someone less abusive in the future and have more kids!
8 Will Kopelman Is Still A Catch
There's nothing sweeter than a loving dad and his little girls! Drew Barrymore's ex-husband, Will Kopelman, is one of our favorite Hollywood dads! Will and Drew decided they would split and focus their energy and attention on their two daughters, Olive and Frankie.
According to Daily Mail, Drew Barrymore's 'hippie-dippy nature' forced the split, as Will's homebody demeanor didn't match Drew's free-spirited temperament.
While she was jet-setting off to work, he was happy staying home with the girls.
Now that he's single, we're looking forward to him finding someone more his speed who he can stay at home with. It's sad that Drew and Will couldn't work things out, with a Daily Mail article claiming that Drew tried hard to be the person Will wanted. Seeing how badly he wants a traditional household leads us to think he'll be looking to settle down again, and have some more babies!
7 Taye Diggs Looks Younger Than His Baby Mama
The How Stella Got Her Groove Back star is single and ready to mingle! Okay, so Taye Diggs has been single and ready to mingle since 2014 when he divorced his wife and Rent co-star, Idina Menzel. Idina Menzel was also the voice behind Disney's Frozen as Elsa, the movie all parents cringe at, and from which the phrase 'Let It Go' has generated so many hilarious memes.
The couple welcomed their first and only child, a son named Walker, in 2009. After their divorce (preceded by a longer-than-usual separation for Hollywood marriages), they aimed at co-parenting amicably for their son's sake, and have been getting along really well!
Now that the actor is approaching his 50's, although he appears to be drinking from the fountain of youth and is sporting a look that is more along the lines of a 30-year-old, we're excited to see where his next relationship takes him! Maybe he'll walk down the aisle once more, and give his darling boy Walker some siblings!
6 Nick Cannon Has Already Welcomed Another Baby After The Divorce
After his divorce from music legend Mariah Carey, with whom he shares twins Moroccan and Monroe, the couple agreed to do things right by their children and get along. Nick stated,
"So when you get to a point where there's no longer any growth and you're not bettering each other... I felt like it was probably best, especially for our children, since they're the number one priority if I could be the best human being and the best father from outside of that house"
according to News 24.
With the ink still wet on the divorce papers, Nick engaged in a brief relationship with Brittany Bell (former Phoenix Suns dancer and Miss Arizona 2010). Brittany Bell became pregnant following their rendezvous, and gave birth to their son, Golden "Sagon" Cannon, in February of 2017.
5 Kourtney Kardashian's Baby Daddy Has Moved On
Scott Disick, known for his wild fashion sense and for being Kourtney Kardashian's ex-boyfriend and baby daddy, isn't everyone's favorite reality star. Kourtney and Scott have three kids together (Mason, Penelope, and Reign), but called it quits in 2015 after nearly 9 years of their on-again, off-again relationship.
Now that Kourtney is dating former boxer, Younes Bendjima, Scott Disick is dating Kourtney look-alike Sofia Richie (19-year-old daughter of Lionel Richie). Sofia is 15 years younger than Scott, but that isn't stopping this romance. It really surprises us how alike the shortest Kardashian sister and Sofia Richie look. Scott certainly has a type. With her blonde hair, Sofia resembles a blonde Kourtney!
And he may be looking for a new baby mama. Considering his net worth of an estimated 15 million, he can afford the child support ;).
4 Wiz Khalifa Wants To Get Married Again Some Day
According to ET Online, Wiz had this to say about his marriage to Amber Rose:"Things that would've taken me much longer to learn, I learned in a short period of time. I feel like I'll probably get married again when I'm in my 50s."
Although many rumors bounced back and forth about who cheated on who (or if there was ever any cheating at all), the fact is that Wiz Khalifa moved out of their home, announcing that he didn't want to be married to Amber any longer, and Amber later caught him in bed with another woman. Convinced this was still cheating, Amber filed for divorce the very next day. The couple shares a son together, Sebastian, and have joint custody.
Since his split with his curvy ex-wife model Amber Rose, Wiz has dated Izabela Guedes, and may now have his sights set on singer Omarion's ex-fiance and baby mama Apryl Jones.
The two have been making some flirtatious comments on each other's Instagram posts lately!
And with the rapper already hinting at getting married again (we're betting that will happen soon than his 50s), and actively dating, he may be looking to have another serious relationship with more kids.
3 Colin Farrell Is Sober And Dating
Ah, Colin Farrell, the dark-haired, sultry Irish actor that makes us laugh and swoon at the same time. His character Bobby Pellitt in Horrible Bosses (2011) had us cracking up, complete with a fat suit and comb over hairpiece.
In real life, Colin has two young sons, one with Kim Bordenave named James Padraig (born in 2003), and another with Alicja Bachleda-Curuś named Henry Tadeusz (born in 2009). In between the births of his two children, Colin went to rehab in 2005 for his substance and alcohol addictions, resurfacing successfully afterward. Now that he's been sober for over 10 years (something he is strongly motivated by as his role as a father to his two boys), he's dating a mystery woman whom he still will not name.
Perhaps now, still being a young 40-something sober actor with his act together and happier than he's ever been, he'll want to settle down and start a family with this mystery bae!
2 Cristiano Ronaldo Likes To Play The Field
If you didn't follow Portuguese soccer before, you're going to want to now, thanks to soccer hunk Cristiano Ronaldo! Cristiano is the 3rd most followed person on Instagram and is a single dad to a little boy, Cristiano Jr. The identity of his mother is still unknown, with some sources speculating that she was paid to disappear after the birth and is being quietly taken care of financially.
He never married the woman, and the reasoning for that can probably be chalked up to the fact that their union was a one-night thing, however, we simply do not know any details, and Cristiano is adamant about keeping it that way.
With the recent birth of his twins, Eva Maria and Mateo via a surrogate, and the birth of his daughter Alana Martina with his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez in November 2017, his life is full of love and blessings!
1 Ricky Martin Is Single Again, But Has Twins Now!
We aren't sure what rock Ricky Martin has been living under, but he has still been Livin' La Vida Loca...the 'vida' of a dad! Having twins boys via a surrogate in 2008 (Matteo and Valentino) and then coming out as a gay man in 2010, life has certainly had its ups and downs in the last decade for the singer. Ricky dated Carlos Gonzalez Abella until they broke up in 2014, after 5 years together.
Ricky recently tied the knot with boyfriend Jwan Yosef this past January.
The Latin singer has said, according to US Magazine, he'd love to try for a daughter with now-husband Jwan."I want four more pairs of twins", Ricky said when asked about his family plans. Now that he's finally happy and in a great relationship for himself and his two young boys, we can't wait to see what the future holds for this pair!
