    It makes our hearts swell to see dads getting so many props lately — from the men of Modern Family to spying all those celeb-pops pap shots (how frickin' cute are Orlando and Flynn Bloom?). And it's no wonder why these paternal pics make us melt the way they do. Your father may have taught you how to ride a bike, balance your first checkbook, or even wiped away the tears of your first heartache — they just always seem to come in clutch when you need 'em most. So, in keeping with the pappa love, we've rounded up a bevy of loving local dads that deserve a sincere shout-out. Bonus: These dudes have dapper in spades! Check out our snaps from the scrapbooks of TenOverSix owner Joe Cole, Living Things frontman Lillian Berlin, and a bunch of others, all snuggled up with their kiddos. Upon first awww-inducing glance, they all pretty much make us want to start a family of our own (we can only hope to snag such a catch!). Start clicking and get your phone handy, because this adorbs slideshow will have you yearning for your pops like no other.
