Andrew Ungaro  / Today
iVillage Hot Dads Contest 2013 Winners

Sure, our husbands are caring, hard-working dads—but they're also pretty easy on the eyes, too. That's why we host our annual Hot Dads Contest—so we can pay tribute to the guys we've been married to for years who somehow have become even hotter, post-babies.

This year's Hot Dads Contest received a record 1,500 entries in nine categories and a whopping 150,000 votes. Our star panel of judges including E! host Giuliana Rancic, Patch chief content officer Rachel Feddersen, TODAY Moms senior editor Rebecca Dube and iVillage editorial director, Liz Zack, narrowed down the competition to nine seriously hot category winners.

But the most smoking dad of all was Andrew Ungaro, a 37-year-old dad of two from Virginia who today was named this year’s Hottest Dad in America on the TODAY Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda Kotb. He’ll celebrate his big win with a week-long all-expenses paid vacation for two to Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, along with a $250 spa credit. (They'll celebrate 19 years of marriage next year—so it's a second honeymoon!)

From California to Florida, meet the Hottest Dad in America, along with the eight runners-up below.
