We aren't arguing this title! Deadpool star, Ryan Reynolds, can finally add a new title to his already impressive resume — Sexiest Dad Alive! The talented actor, who welcomed his first child with his stunning other half, Blake Lively, a little over a year ago, stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon yesterday to catch a first glimpse of his newest title and magazine cover!

It looks like this new dad can do no wrong. The Deadpool star, who showed off both his dapper red carpet looks and gorgeous other-half while walking the red carpet earlier this week, is once again taking the media by storm after the reveal of his People's Sexiest Dad Alive title, People confirms. The actor and father to daughter James made his Sexiest Dad Alive cover debut while chatting with host, Jimmy Fallon, on The Tonight Show Tuesday night. "What?! I mean come on! I mean scientifically speaking, what's sexier than a man that fornicates, produces children and then looks surprised about it," Reynolds hilariously joked to Fallon about his new cover. People also revealed the newest cover on Instagram stealing a snapshot from the candid late show moment.

And in honor of the hunky actor's newest label, we are breaking down People's newest cover star's sexiest dad moments — because, honestly, we're aways looking for an excuse to gawk at Reynolds' hunky dad bod.

1. When He Admitted to Crying Like a Baby Over Baby James
Who could forget one of the new dad's earliest fatherhood moments after revealing his emotional side due to the birth of his baby girl? The actor confessed back in April that the last time he cried was when "my baby [was] being born. I was inconsolable. I was moved to instant sprinkler head." Is there anything sexier than unconditional love?

2. When He Confessed to Being Totally Powerless to His Daughter
James' doting dad also showed off his big heart when stopping by The Tonight Show early last year to discuss his newborn's sleeping habits or, rather lack there of. "It's exciting, nine weeks now! I do everything [for her]," said the new dad at the time hilariously adding, "Our baby in particular is, we think, allergic to sleep." While discussing his and his wife's newest addition, the Sexiest Dad Alive couldn't help but reveal his already smitten feelings toward his new bundle of joy. "She's got me wrapped around her finger," said Reynolds who proved the fact by posting what might be one of Instagram's sweetest snapshots, showcasing the doting dad's "thumb wrestling" match with his new baby girl. The photo, which innocently shows off his daughter's tiny fingers, is the perfect example of daddy-daughter bonding. "Thumb wrestling isn't always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one," captioned the comedic actor.

Thumb wrestling isn't always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one.

Lively, who married her handsome beau back in 2012, took to Instagram last year to share a photo of her hubby's first Father's Day! The adorable photo, which effortlessly shows off her Deadpool hubby's subtle-yet-perfect dad bod, was adorned with the hilarious caption, "Happy Fathers Day!!! ... @vancityreynolds Since the day our baby was born, I've felt so strongly in my heart that you were most likely the father #ILoveYouSoMuchItsSilly."
