Our Favorite Fictional Dads

Marla Miniano, Editor In Chief Crosby Braverman on Parenthood. He's such a flawed character with a huge heart, and I like how he represents the struggle of young dads everywhere: trying to raise another human being when you're still growing up yourself. —Marla, Editor In Chief
Steph Yapnayon, Art Director I love Phil from Modern Family. Even if he's clueless at times, he's still pretty funny! —Steph, Art Director
Angel Constantino Aquino, Managing Editor Phil Dunphy from Modern Family. I love him because he has such a great sense of humor and a close relationship with his kids. —Angel, Managing Editor
Dyan Zarzuela, Entertainment and Features Editor My favorite TV dad is Tom Bradshaw from The Carrie Diaries. He's sweet, protective, and most importantly, present. —Dyan, Entertainment and Features Editor
Kaye Robles, Editorial Assistant I love how seriously Sheriff Stilinski takes the job of protecting Beacon Hills on Teen Wolf, even if that means going up against his son's supernatural enemies as well. I'd want to be his TV daughter, but that would mean I wouldn't be allowed to crush on Stiles! —Kaye, Editorial Assistant
Macy Alcaraz, Web Managing Editor Friday Night Lights' Coach Taylor is my fave TV dad! He's passionate about the game, but never forgets about his family. I love how he's a dedicated coach and father. He also gives the best advice. Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose. Never forget! —Macy, Web Managing Editor
Erin Torrejon, Web Fashion and Beauty Assistant I love Modern Family's Phil Dunphy. Not only is he absolutely hilarious, he's also such a sweet dad who loves being involved in his children's lives. —Erin, Web Fashion and Beauty Assistant
Ayessa De La Pena, Web Editorial Assistant My favorite TV dad is Modern Family's Phil Dunphy. I love him because he's a cool dad and knows all the dance steps from High School Musical. —Ayessa, Web Editorial Assistant
