If you haven’t been following Supernatural star Jensen Ackles on social media, you’ve been missing out! The family-oriented actor seems to live the epitome of the picture perfect life — drop dead gorgeous looks, rising star, beautiful wife, adorable daughter and an enviable bromance with his co-stars. It’s no wonder he’s our dad crush of the week. Let’s take a closer look at why we think he rocks:
Jensen started out as a child model, before moving into acting. Since then, he has had guest roles in Sweet Valley High and Smallville, joined the cast of Dawson’s Creek and won a Daytime Emmy Award for his role in Days of Our Lives before joining the cast of Supernatural (which is now in its twelfth season).

The dreamy actor has a bromance going on with his co-stars Mischa Collins and Jared Padalecki, with both often appearing on his social media accounts. (More eye candy for us!)
Jensen married One Tree Hill actress Danneel Harris in May 2010 and the pair have a three year old daughter, Justice Jay (JJ) Ackles.
Jensen is head-over-heels in love with his daughter so much so that the first photo he posted on Instagram was one of him and little JJ:
The smitten dad doesn’t shy away from kisses.
Nor does he mind make-up, flowers and the colour pink.
We have a feeling he’s the kind of dad that would do anything to see his little girl smile. JJ’s definitely a daddy’s girl.
The actor is thoroughly enjoying fatherhood. His co-star Jared is also a father so the kids are often pictured playing together, with JJ even referring to Jared’s boys as “my boys”:
Watch out dads, the next generation of hunters are here!

And we absolutely love how he’s a loving husband to wife Danneel. Don’t they make a striking couple?
The pair maybe parents but they sure know how to have a good time.
