Well, one dad has already received some major recognition, and it's not just from his kids.

His win comes right out of the blue, too, once you see who else was in the category with him. He took the accolade ahead of people such as Prince William, Simon Cowell, Liam Payne, and Anthony Joshua.

He celebrated his win on Twitter, posting: "OH MY GOD...WE ONLY WENT AND DID IT!! Yes maaate.

"I can't thank each and every one of you enough for voting for me. Totally shocked and overwhelmed!

"Not only am I now Clas Ohlson UK 'Celebrity' Dad Of The Year for 2018...but I'm now the first person to have beaten Anthony Joshua."


Ever the comedian.

As a matter of fact, much of Mark's popularity comes from not only his zany antics and humour, but also his obvious love and affection for his wife Roxanne and young son Phoenix.

He and his wife also recently welcomed a second child into their family.

Clas Ohlson also took the opportunity to offer their congratulations to Hoyle. They posted on Facebook saying:

"It's the moment you've all been waiting for!

The winner of Clas Ohlson Celebrity Dad of the Year 2018 is... The one and only LadBaby!

YES MATE!!

The social media sensation has beaten boxers, football legends and even Royalty to be named Celebrity Dad of the Year.

Huge congratulations from us all at Clas Ohlson and thank you to everyone who voted!"


The companies head of marketing, Melissa Titshall, added: "We couldn't be more pleased to announce Mark as our winner for 2018, and we wish him all the best for the future. To help celebrate his win, we're also pleased to offer him £500 to spend in Clas Ohlson, we can't wait to see what he spends it on!

"The Clas Ohlson 'Celebrity Dad of the Year' award is not only about celebrating famous dads, but also to shine a light on the great work that dads do across the UK. Mark has shown us and the public just what family life is like behind closed doors and, in doing so, has amassed millions of dedicated followers."

Well done, Mark LAD.
