Kevin Federline, father of the year? Well, not quite, but Details magazine has deemed Britney Spears’ famous ex one of its “50 Most Influential Men under 45.”

To be specific, Federline, 29, is listed in the No. 7 slot as a “Good Father” alongside Larry Birkhead. Federline, a father of four to be exact, tells the magazine that “To be a father is… everything. It shows me how little I am.”

Little as he might be, his acting career is getting bigger, at least by Federline’s standards. One lament: “I’d actually like to play somebody other than a bad guy or an ass,” he tells Details.

And although the decisions in his ongoing custody battle with Spears speak for themselves, Federline reveals a snapshot of life inside his household. “My TVs are pretty much G-rated right now. Anything from “SpongeBob” to “Finding Nemo,” and you know, I’m still trying to decide which one I like more.”
