Soon-to-be dad Nev Schulman snuggled up to fiancée Laura Perlongo’s baby-bump for a parental photo op at the MTV VMAs. As Perlongo turned heads with her bare belly red carpet look, the Catfish host shared a sweet moment with mama and daughter-to-be. While walking the carpet with eight months pregnant Perlongo, Schulman told PEOPLE, “She was already beautiful and now she’s, like, times-10 beautiful.” Schulman also bubbled over with fatherly excitement in his Instagram announcement of the pregnancy. We can only imagine how he'll react when the baby arrives!

OK, so Nick and Vanessa Lachey's holiday card wins everything...! In this sweet snap, their son Camden smooches mama Vanessa while Nick smooches their daughter-to-be, Brooklyn. A few months after she was born, he told PopSugar he already felt that father-daughter bond.

You have carried the next generation. And you have proven to me that love is real and genuine." Their daughter, Iman Shumpert Jr., was later delivered at home, with a major assist from dad!

I know that by the time I come home, I'll be brought right back to earth."

You are the man I've dreamed of and you have given me the family My heart has longed for. The amount of love I have for you and our son is insurmountable and I am going to spend the rest of my life showing you that love..."
