The Danish Girl actor Eddie Redmayne and his wife Hannah Bagshawe have welcomed a daughter, Iris Mary, into the world overnight, The Sun can confirm. The 34-year-old Oscar winner, who this week was named the face of Prada, met Bagshawe at college and married the publicist 18 months ago. “There’s joy, excitement and a little bit of fear,” he said. “I can’t wait. I’ll be a hands-on dad.” And while we wait for those baby photos, here’s a few famous fathers in the most heart-bursting hands-on dad moments to tide you over.

Channing Tatum


[EDITORS SIDENOTE: While we’re on Tatum and to burst your heart even more, let’s take note of how beautifully he speaks about his wife, Jenna Dewan. This post was captioned: “I took this just days after jenna and I (mostly jenna) brought our little girl into the world. I’ve taken many like it over the past 3 years but this is one of my favorites. She was so tired. Haha. But she has such deep strength and other worldly grace. Watching her in those first days transform into a mother was life changing. She was every bit the beautiful, sexy, funny, flawed creature I fell in love with. But the prism turned and showed a whole new light that I had no idea existed, the light of a mothers love. Thank you for that baby. Saw this quote today –” The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. Theodore Hesburgh” there are a lot of important things in being a father. Who knows what the most important thing is? All I know is that in my case this is pretty high on my list. Love you cake!”]
