Hey moms and kids: Got a hot dad in the house?

Now's your chance to share some of that heat with the rest of us. It's iVillage.com's 2012 Hot Dads Contest, where readers can share photos of the great-looking guys in their life. Last year, more than 700 sent in pics -- from engineers to web designers to contractors -- and after judges narrowed it down to some finalists, readers chose James Tritle, a military dad from Alaska (shown below), as the hottest dad in America.

Full disclosure: We at TODAY Moms have a vested interest in the contest, given that our own TODAY Moms editor Rebecca Dube is on the panel of judges. She'll share the difficult task of choosing drool-worthy dudes with Rosie Pope, star of Bravo’s Pregnant in Heels, Liz Zack, Editorial Director of iVillage’s Pregnancy & Parenting channel and Andrea Fellman, owner of Savvy Sassy Moms and an iVillage iVoice columnist.
