This photo is from a few years back but it still gives me all the feels. Who doesn’t get weak in the knees when they see Levy in all his fine glory. Talk about a looker. Not to mention that his matching son is one of the most adorable things we’ve ever seen on any red carpet. Get it, papito.

Alex Rodriguez knows how to be a dapper dad, and clearly loves his baby girl very much.

How cute are they?? He might be caught up in an alleged cheating scandal but that doesn’t change how much he loves his daughter. He is a father who just wanted the best for his little girl and it totally shows. We absolutely love the kind of love these two share.

Jaime Camil brings the bundled up babeliness with his son, Little Jaime.

Those adorable smiles say it all! I’m not sure I can handle it. Granted, I always swoon when I see Jaime Camil smile because that smile is just so dreamy. I would not be able to control myself if he ever walked up to me and told me anything remotely nice.

Ricky Martin feeling ignored by his sons is not only adorable and funny but so very relatable.

Who could ignore Ricky?? Well, I guess his boys can since to them he’s probably just boring old dad. If they only knew that he had the whole world moving and banging, they might not be so quick to blow him off. If you need someone to give you some love and appreciation, let me know. I would be happy to tell you how important you are in my life.

James Rodriguez is all teeth and sweetness with his little girl, but we see you setting that thirst trap.

No shirt?? I know what you’re doing and it’s working overtime on me. Not to mention, your daughter is absolutely adorable. She might give me a run for my money as your biggest fan. I can’t imagine futbol without you and I never want to live in that kind of hell.

Juanes and his boy Dante bring the fashion.

@juanes / Instagram

Poll: Who has the cooler hair? I’m leaning Dante. However, it is clear that His dad has something to do with his killer style. It shows that the apple never falls far from the tree and he will be a heartbreaker like his daddy before we know it.

Aaron Diaz’s baby girl Regina may be skeptical about something, but it can’t be her dad’s face.

@aarondiaz / Instagram

That’s just a good face. Not even a side-eye throwing baby can deny that. Hell,, not even a side-eye throwing adult can deny that. Seriously. Who wouldn’t want Diaz to rest his gorgeous head in their lap?

If Mario Lopez passes his dimples onto his son Dominic, game over.

@mariolopezextra / Instagram

Those Lopez dimples are powerful. They have kept us mesmerized since he was on “Saved By The Bell” and don’t show any signs of slowing down. They (those dimples) definitely know how to stop people in their tracks. Who hasn’t been scrolling through social media and paused to look at that face?

Ezequiel Lavezzi and his son Tomás lounging poolside is only missing one thing…

@pocho22lavezzi / Instagram

Me, eating buffalo wings and wearing SPF 50 and a big hat to cover my face from the sun. I don’t want to burn and ruin this gorgeous skin. After all, I am hoping to make Lavezzi my next ex-husband with a whirlwind romance all over the world following his soccer games. Shall we start a petition to make this happen?

Hulk Paraiba and his boys Tiago and Ian hanging by the beach is family goals.

@hulkparaiba / Instagram

I’d be offering to rub sunblock on Hulk’s hulking biceps like every five minutes. You know. For safety purposes. There’s no reason to let the sun get the best of you when you can keep everything silky smooth and protected.

Oscar de la Hoya enjoying a day at the ballpark with his son Little Oscar is not only cute but also, that family has good genes.

@oscardelahoya / Instagram

Take me out to that ball game. De La Hoya has made some questionable choices in the past, but his love for his son is so evident. We all want a husband who can shower the kiddos with the love they deserve and he is one of those dads. I’ll DM you my number.

Leo Messi reading to his little look-alike is just the sweetest thing ever.

@leomessi / Instagram

Plus he‘s loaded… Like way to melt my heart, Leo. His long beard is a little hard to fall in love with but there is one thing we know for sure. That face under the beard is one that everyone can love.

Canelo not only brings the knockouts in the ring, but he also does with his daughter Emily.

@canelo / Instagram

She’s so precious, and her poppa is no ugly duckling himself. He has the physique that only a career in boxing can create and we just can’t stop checking him out. But, like all the other men, there is something so sexy about seeing a father lovingly doting over his children.

Carmelo Anthony and his son Kiyan are chips off the same handsome block.

@carmeloanthony / Instagram

That‘s probably because all that Puerto Rican blood running through their veins. It’s just a biased fact that Latinos are leaps and bounds more attractive than most people on the planet. Maybe it’s our diet or the fact that we are just some of the hottest people around. Who know?

Gerard Pique loves a daddy date with his little one Sasha.

@3gerardpique / Instagram

That is no doubt the most adorable date that’s ever happened in history. Mainly because the little one is a total ham. Just look at those chubby cheeks and piercing eyes. What a cutie. And the dad is one of the most drop dead gorgeous men in existence.

Danny and Gilbert Trejo bring the badassery to the father-son dynamic.

@officialdannytrejo / Instagram

That’s a lot of coolness in one photo. They might not be hot in a conventional way, but they are hot with the way they carry themselves. They know how to keep people intrigued without going over the top with their physique or tedious styling.

Luis Fonsi and his kids Mika and Rocco are too cute, even from behind.

@luisfonsi / Instagram

And now I‘m not sure what I crave more… a slice of cake or a piece of Luis. Even from behind his sexiness is just oozing off of him. I can’t get enough of his dude and I hope he reads this and discovers that he is hopelessly in love with me.

Marc Anthony getting treated to a little manicure from his daughter Emme is the sweetest.

@marcanthony / Instagram

Even while he throws up west side. There is something so nice about men secure enough in their masculinity to play dress up with their daugthers. Like, they are your precious angles and they need to be treated to a fun time with dad. Grow up and let them paint your nails.

Alejandro Fernandez’s daughters Camilla and America show appreciation for their potrillo papa.

@alexoficial / Instagram

I don’t know when it happened but Alejandro graduated to zaddy status and I’m here for it. Sup, grey hairs. We see all of you and we love every last one of you like our own. Good for you, sir. Good for you.

]Andy Garcia serves up mega zaddy vibes too with his model daughter Alessandra.

@alessandragl / Instagram

That beard and hat gives me Sean Connery vibes or the old dude from “Jurassic Park” and I’m not mad about it. I might be more concerned if I was not into this look because he knows how to rock his age and we thank him for it.

Mark Consuelos is picture perfect with his daughter Lola Grace.

@instasuelos / Instagram

How did I forget hot Mark Consuelos is?? I’m gonna google a lot later. Move over Kelly Ripa. You are a gorgeous woman and we thank you for keep Consuelos company while we perfected our pitch as to why he should be with us. Yes, us. We are pooling our resources on this one.

Freddie Prinze Jr. is handsome AF even with his son farting on his head.

@realfreddieprinze / Instagram

Dad life for real. He was a total heartthrob in the ’90s and 2000s and somehow stayed a heartthrob all these years later. It’s like the only aging he went through was his hair getting a little white. I just want to spend my summer running away from a serial killer with him as my partner. (If you don’t get that reference, you’re too young for him.)

Sure Vicente Fernandez is in his 70s but he’s still got the sauce.

@_vicentefdez / Instagram

What’s the grandpa version of zaddy? Gaddy? Paddy? Who knows, really. All we know is that he still gets our attention with his soulful music and his no-shit-taken attitude. It is a whole mood that we are all trying to adopt as our own.

Benjamin Bratt knows how to catch some rays while also teaching his son Mateo a thing or two.

Vida Vibrante

I mean, these beach day photos are too much. He has so much swagger and it is the kind of swagger you don’t expect and, at the same time, can’t get enough of. We have been drooling over him for decades in all of the movies and shows he has done.

Yandel throwing up dukes with his sons is tough and all, but really it’s kind of sweet.

@yandel / Instagram

Nice try, fellas. Those fists are fooling anyone. We all know that you are just an adorable and lovable bunch. We cannot be fooled by some fists trying to threaten us.

Hundreds Of Universities, Cities, And Businesses File Amicus Briefs Urging The Supreme Court To Defend DACA

Things That Matter

Hundreds Of Universities, Cities, And Businesses File Amicus Briefs Urging The Supreme Court To Defend DACA

This week the Supreme Court went back into session, kicking off what’s expected to be one of the most divisive and controversial terms in recent history. Everything from LGBTQ and abortion rights, to yes, DACA, is on the docket, and America will get to see the impact of the addition of Trump-appointee Brett Kavanaugh.

Although judges are expected to be politically impartial, Kavanaugh’s contentious confirmation hearing after being accused of sexual assault, left him charging Democrats with unfairly going after his character.

Now, some experts are bracing for a possible “conservative revolution,” after the court overturned two precedents (a highly unusual move) last term, and President Donald Trump has successfully appointed 150 judges to lifetime seats on the bench (whoever told said your vote didn’t matter, lied.)

In its newly started session, the Supreme Court isn’t shying away from hot topic issues – including a decision that will decide the outcome of DACA once and for all.

President Donald Trump’s signature issue is immigration, and in November the court will consider his administration’s decision to phase out DACA, an Obama-era initiative that protects nearly 700,000 young undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children from deportation. The eventual ruling will have a major impact on way or another in the presidential race.

At issue before the justices is not the legality of the program, but how the administration decided to phase it out.

Plaintiffs, including the University of California, a handful of states and DACA recipients argue that the phase out violated the Administrative Procedure Act, a federal law that governs how agencies can establish regulations. Lower courts agreed and issued nationwide injunctions that allowed renewals in the program to continue. The Trump administration appealed the decision to the Supreme Court, and at the time, the President predicted success: “We want to be in the Supreme Court on DACA,” he said.

Groups of all kinds are filing so-called Amicus briefs to the Suprme Court urging them to protect DACA.

More than 100 different cities from across the country, dozens of major colleges and universities, and some of the country’s largest companies all joined together to defend DACA.

The brief filed by some 165 educational institutions said: “These extraordinary young people should be cherished and celebrated, so that they can achieve their dreams and contribute to the fullest for our country. Banishing them once more to immigration limbo — a predicament they had no part in creating — is not merely cruel, but irrational.”

Even the Mexican government filed a brief with the court.

Mexico has had little legal recourse in it’s fight against Trump’s cruel and (as many consider) illegal policies targeting the migrant community. And a large part of the migrant community (including those attacked at the El Paso Massacre) are Mexican nationals. So the government has been eager to take a stand.

And with the upcoming legal battle regarding DACA, Mexico has staked its position in support of DREAMers by filing an Amicus brief with the court. The brief points out the commitment to human rights and the principles of dignity that should be afforded to all humans – regardless of their migration status.

Meanwhile, children advocates point out that eliminating the program would also harm more than a quarter million US-born children.

More than three dozen child advocacy organizations say White House officials failed to account for a quarter of a million children born in the U.S. whose parents are protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program when they repealed it in 2017.

“These children are endangered not only by the actual detention and deportation of their parents, but also the looming fear of deportation,” the groups wrote in an amicus brief filed with the Supreme Court last week. “The imminent threat of losing DACA protection places children at risk of losing parental nurturance, as well as losing income, food security, housing, access to health care, educational opportunities, and the sense of safety and security that is the foundation of healthy child development.”

Children’s health experts have been sounding the alarm on the impact of toxic stress inflicted on children impacted by the Trump administration’s immigration agenda. Studies have linked toxic stress to developmental issues with children’s brains and bodies and an increase in their risk of disorders ranging from diabetes to depression, heart disease, cancer, addiction and premature death.

DACA was created by an Obama executive order in 2012, and the Trump Administration announced in September 2017 it was officially ending the program.

When the Trump administration officially announced the end of the DACA program in September 2017, there were nearly 800,000 young immigrants around the country who benefited from it.

Three lawsuits challenging the termination of DACA filed in California, the District of Columbia and New York eventually led to courts prohibiting the government from phasing out the immigration program. Those lawsuits argued that ending the DACA program violated the rights of those covered by its benefits and ran counter to a federal law governing administrative agencies, according to SCOTUSblog. The Supreme Court consolidated those three lawsuits and will hear arguments on the DACA case on Nov. 12.

The justices will consider whether the court even has the authority to review the Trump administration’s decision to end DACA and, if so, whether the decision to end DACA is legal.

Predictably, President Trump has urged the court to strike down DACA.

As recently as Wednesday, President Trump said his predecessor had no authority to initiate the DACA program in the first place, and that if the Supreme Court overturns it, as it should, Congress would likely find a legislative solution to allowing DACA recipients to remain in the U.S.

“The Republicans and Democrats will have a DEAL to let them stay in our Country, in very short order,” he tweeted Wednesday. “It would actually benefit DACA, and be done the right way!”

A Newly Restored Version of The 90s ‘Selena’ Classic Film Starring Jennifer Lopez Is Coming To The Big Screen Again

A Newly Restored Version of The 90s ‘Selena’ Classic Film Starring Jennifer Lopez Is Coming To The Big Screen Again

Selena /Warner Bros.

Twenty-two years have passed since Latinas across the globe watched in awe as Jennifer Lopez took on the role of Tejano music icon Selena in the biopic of her life. The 1997 classic lovingly spotlighted the singer’s life and death years ago and, in the years since, has been a sort of cultural Latino touchstone for young girls who didn’t have the chance to grow up watching the singer herself.

Now, young Latinas who didn’t get to see the classic in the theaters during its original release will have a chance to do just that this weekend.

The Brooklyn Academy of Music has announced that it will screen a new digital print of the film in theaters this weekend.

Back in 1997, when the film was originally released, “Selena” spent fifteen weeks at the box office. It’s time in theaters proved that Latinos could not only direct films, but they could star in them as well while also drawing massive audiences to movie theater seats. At the time, the film marked a breakout moment for actress, singer, and dancer Jennifer Lopez.

If you’re in NYC this weekend and plan on attending the screening, here are some fun facts to remember while watching!

Fans of Selena protested when they learned Jennifer Lopez was playing Selena.

Selena’s fans began protesting the film once they learned that Jennifer Lopez was taking on the role of their beloved singer. Many thought that Lopez, a Puerto Rican from New York, was unfit to play the Mexican-American from Texas.

Six other women gave J.Lo a run for her money.

Three women from the open call were selected and three other actresses including Salma Hayek and Bibi Gaytán were considered.

Jackie Guerra lied about her talents.

Jackie Guera who played the role of Suzette, wanted the role so badly that she lied at her audition and said that she was an expert drummer. Suzette later gave her private lessons.

“Selena” almost became a victim of brownface.

The film’s director had to fight to get Lopez the role of Selena. At the time, Warner Bros was considering a non-Latina actress to take on the role which would have been AWFUL.

Jennifer Lopez lip-synched

Creators feared that fans would be upset if they saw Lopez singing the song on her own. So Lopez was coached to lip-synch instead.

Abraham Quintanilla didn’t want to show Selena’s murder.

The film which came out just two years after Selena’s death was likely a very hard project for Abraham to work on. He didn’t want to show his daughter’s death but the film’s director convinced him it was necessary.

Constance Marie could be Jennifer Lopez’s sister.

Lopez and Marie play mother and daughter in the movie. But in real life, Marie is only 4 years older than Jennifer Lopez.
