Thanks to your votes, the writer/actor/director and father of two is the winner of HollyBaby’s very first poll to find Hollywood’s Best Dad! Do you agree? Vote!

Father-of-two Ben Affleck, 38, has squeaked out a narrow victory in HollyBaby.com’s poll to determine who is the best dad in Hollywood — he scored almost 26 percent of the vote, edging out runner-up Brad Pitt, 46, by just over five points — and joining Gwen Stefani, the winner of the Best Mom poll (Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner, finished third)!

“I love being a father,” the actor has said about being a dad to daughters Violet, 4, and Seraphina, 18 months. “It’s wonderful. It’s changed my life. It all sounds like platitudes and clichés, and that’s because they’re the truth.”

Of the remaining eight men in the poll, three of them (Hugh Jackman, with 13 percent and Will Smith and Matt Damon, each tied at 12) reached double digits, while none of the other five (Joel Madden, David Beckham, Pete Wentz, Matthew McConaughey and Gwen Stefani’s husband, Gavin Rossdale) scored as high as five percent.

Congratulations, Ben!
