Peter Andre has been voted Celebrity Dad Of The Year in a poll of over 35,000 people conducted by Bounty.
The 36-year-old pop singer is father to Junior, five, and Princess, two. He also looks after his ex-wife Katie Price's son Harvey, eight.
This marks the second time the 'Mysterious Girl' star has been given the accolade - he scooped the gong in 2008, in a survey of 2,000 mothers.
He said at the time: "For the last couple of years I've been saying that if there's any kind of award I could win it would be dad of the year. I'm over the moon."
Andre's parenting skills have drawn plenty of positive press in the wake of his split from glamour model Price, also known as Jordan. Andre was depicted as a doting father while Price's headlines revolved around her partying overseas.
Andre beat other famous fathers, such as TV presenter Vernon Kay, singer Ronan Keating and Take That star Mark Owen - all of whom have been linked to cheating scandals this year.
Collecting his award, Andre said: "This feels so good. It's been a turnaround year for me and the kids and it's an honour to be the subject of the public's support and best wishes.
"This means a huge amount to me as being a dad is my most important role."
Faye Mingo from parenting club Bounty.com said: "Bounty is thrilled Peter has been awarded the title.
"Our mums tell us that he's an inspiration for all single dads going through a tough divorce and that they respect the fact that he makes time and puts in untold effort to be able to enjoy the family life he values so much."
