From heartbreaker to father! Time has passed and we can’t believe it Chad Michael Murray is a proud father of two children.

Chad featured his 4-year-old daughter in a new Instagram post on Monday March 29th, reminding us exactly why we all fell in love with him 20 years ago on Gilmore Girls and Dawson’s Creek.

“The cuddly toys are real,” said the 39-year-old actor with closed eyes to a picture of himself as he hugged his daughter. Although her face was hidden for privacy reasons, fans looked at her blonde braid and adorable pink floral dress.

“No better duty than #daddyduty,” he wrote, adding, “love our family.”

Chad and his six year old wife, his chosen co-star Sarah Roemer, also share a 5 year old son. (He was previously married to Sophia Bush from 2005 to 2006).

As his former One Tree Hill co-star Hilarie Burton astute comment: “This is my favorite picture of you ever !!!!!!”
