Happy Father’s Day 2018! celebrated Father’s Day with a twist this year, sharing photos of some of the sexiest dads in soaps. Feel free to dish on your own sexiest soap dads and peruse what some of the soap stars had to say about their fathers, their children and their husbands during Sunday’s celebration.

Grant Turnbull, Days of our Lives’ Nadia Bjorlin’s (Chloe) husband, posted a photo of their two children, Torin and Viggo, along with their grandpa, celebrating Father’s Day, and added a note along with the photo stating, “Very fortunate to have a truly awesome dad. Always been there through thick n thin, makes me realize what I gotta do to live up to Big Trev the Legend!”

Rebecca Budig (GH‘s Hayden) honored her father with a video of him in his boat, saying “You are kind, hard-working, creative, loving, generals and always super fun. We love you and appreciate you.”

I’d say it was icing on the cake but that’d just be a bad dad joke. Although I guess I’ve earned the right…Anyway, to all the other fathers out there have an amazing day!”

General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl) posted a photo of herself with her father and wished a Happy Father’s Day to her dad and other dads out there: “#HappyFathersDay to my Dad who inspired me, made me laugh, and who was an amazing and brilliant symphony conductor!

He taught me the meaning of love respect especially when it came to the woman you love he’s been with my mother for 60 years when people ask me who my hero is there’s no one I can think of but my father happy Father’s Day every day dad.”

Y&R alum (Adam) and This Is Us star, Justin Hartley, uploaded a photo of his daughter Isabella which read, “Happy Father’s Day to all of the amazing fathers out there.
