When you’re a mom in the trenches with a brand-new baby, it can feel like nobody gets it. The exhaustion, the chest-busting love, the feeling like an alien in your own body—did I mention the exhaustion? But sometimes all it takes is a scroll through social media—or even a glance at your baby’s sleep-deprived dad—to realize you really aren’t alone in this 4th-trimester madness. 

That’s why, in honor of Father’s Day, we’re highlighting the dadfluencers who really get it. These are the guys who aren’t afraid to show the hard parts of caring for a baby, and they do it all while making us giggle. They’ll get down and dirty with baby care—like strapping the little squish into a carrier to do some deep cleaning or sending out a PSA to other dads to leave us the hell alone when we’re out of the house for some much-needed “me” time. 

Get your follow button finger ready, because you’re going to want to have these dads in your back pocket anytime you need to laugh, cry, and feel deeply understood all at the same time. (And feel free to send these accounts to your partner as a friendly example of dads doing it right.)  

Isaac Rochell

Nobody gets it more than Isaac Rochell, who goes by @isaacrochell on TikTok. Rochell may be a professional football player in his non-dad life, but he identifies first and foremost as Allison Kuch’s boyfriend and baby daddy. While he has been putting in the work since Kuch gave birth six months ago, we particularly love how he’s telling other dads out there to suck it up and do their daddy duties when mom isn’t home. In a hilarious monologue, he calls out the new-dad urge to call up the default parent to ask every little inane question about the baby. 

“I don’t care if she’s gone for five minutes or five hours, do not call her,” he says. “Let her literally go get an iced vanilla latte with extra espresso and double the pumps of vanilla and maybe you’ll have your second baby,” he quips. We love you, Isaac.

Jordan Flom

Next in line is Jordan Flom (@jordanflomofficial on TikTok), who is the Macgyver of dads and possibly the most resourceful person on the internet. This is the type of dad who you don’t even have to ask to rig up a homemade device to wrangle your triplet’s strollers into a contraption to go to the store, because he’s already on it. While your baby’s dad may never need to reconstruct cargo pants to act as a baby carrier for three kids, that’s the kind of new dad energy we like to see.

Jonny Carlson

If you’re looking for a combination of silly, sweet, and vulnerable dad content, check out Jonny Carlson’s “Fatherhood” highlights (@jonnyxcarlson on Instagram). Carlson and his partner, comedian Manon Matthews, had a baby earlier this year and now collaborate to make goofy videos about what it’s like to be new parents—baby burping and all. It doesn’t hurt that Carlson makes being an exhausted dad look good, too.

Matty BonBon

Then there’s Matty BonBon (@mattybonbon on TikTok), a gay single dad who opted to have a baby via surrogacy. Matty likes to feature everything from matching gay dad OOTDs with his son to gay dad dinners starring a plate full of baby-sized bites. The videos are adorable and sweet, and the love he has for his son is heartwarming. Matty also shared recently that he was diagnosed with kidney failure, which adds another level of emotion and a dads-doing-their-very-best vibe to his videos. Definitely worth a follow if you want a side of sobbing with your dad-and-baby content. 

Ricky Bee

We also love to see Ricky Bee, @2bee.ricky on Instagram, shower his baby daughter with love. From normalizing cuteness aggression (dads get it, too) to introducing us to baby squats as a new parent exercise, Ricky is the feel-good dad who will get us through the long nights. In one video he can be seen “baby handling” his daughter by holding her upside down and throwing her in the air as she explodes with giggles. If Ricky isn’t the very definition of a hands-on dad, we don’t know who is. 

Joey Foo

If you’re in need of a relatable cleaning video complete with an adorable baby, look no further than Joey Foo (@joey.foo on TikTok), a stay-at-home dad known for taking his followers on a haphazard journey that ends with a neat and tidy house, all with his son strapped to his chest. He’ll ask questions like, “How are we doing all this while running on two hours of sleep?” while he vacuums the couch, or shares entertaining if questionable tips like his “pile method,” which he claims is “making the house look somewhat clean.” Joey doing domestic chores with his baby is the hero we deserve (and so desperately need).
