5. Nicholas Tse
Many of us grew up watching Hong Kong actor Nicholas Tse in films such as Young and Dangerous: The Prequel (1998), Bodyguards and Assassins (2009) and The Stool Pigeon (2010). Known for his bad boy good looks and a high profile marriage (followed by an equally high profile divorce) to fellow Hong Konger Cecilia Cheung, Nicholas has since branched out beyond singing and acting.
In fact, the handsome father of two is a celebrated chef now and was recognised by Michelin Guide in 2016 as its first ever “Friend of Michelin” for his positive contribution to the food industry. He even has his own food travelogue show called Chef Nic, two cookie brands and his own kitchen equipment brand. Impressive.

Since debuting in television series Black & White (2009), Taiwanese-Canadian actor Mark Chao has grown to be one of the biggest names in the industry and has gone on to star in films such as Monga (2010), So Young (2014) and Detective Dee (2013 and 2018). But perhaps it was the movie Caught in the Web (2012) that left the biggest impact on him, because it was where the boyish Mark met and fell in love with his wife, Chinese actress Gao Yuanyuan.
Their baby came in time for him to celebrate his first Father’s Day — their daughter was just born on May 21. Congrats to the new dad!

Name an A-list Asian power couple and Chinese actor Huang Xiaoming and actress Angelababy would definitely come to mind. The dashing pair are known for their lavish $31 million wedding in 2015 where Angelababy wore a custom Dior wedding gown and each guest was rumoured to be gifted with a mobile phone each. They now have a two-year old son named Little Sponge.
While the couple try to keep their personal life private and away from the prying eyes of paparazzi, Xiaoming has showed occasional glimpses of his son, including them playing basketball together with Xiaoming’s father. Too cute.
8. John Legend
John Legend is the cutest of dads, especially with the constant online roasting from wife Chrissy Teigen. He is the epitome of an Instagram dad – their daughter Luna has been constantly stealing the spotlight on John’s Instagram and was even featured in his MV for “Love Me Now”. Their youngest son, Miles Theodore, recently turned one with a family celebration that involved a bear-shaped cake.
