MANILA, Philippines -- What does it really mean to be a real man these days?

There is actually no need for wordy explanations. Just look at the following photos to find the answer yourself.

1. Real men can't wait to come home to play with the kids.

The truth is, they can’t get their lovely kids out of their head while they’re away from home.

2. Real men play kiddy games—even if it means painting nails.

It doesn’t matter if they don’t really know how. It’s still a sweet bonding time with their princess.

4. Real men will do crazy things for their kids.

No matter how crazy it is like dressing up and dancing, if it’s going to benefit and delight their kids, they would do it.

5. Real men are real buddies.

6. Real men are not afraid of books.

That doesn’t mean they have to look like nerds. They are simply doing what they love and they do it with full determination.

7. Real men lead by example.

They are leaders who always take the first step, not bosses who just give orders.

8. Real men put their family first.

James Deakin captioned this: “I was just asked in an interview: ‘Where is your favorite place in the world?’ I said: Anywhere my family is.”

That says it all.

9. Real men don’t mind doing household chores.

They cook, do the laundry, change baby diapers, and tutor their kids. Sometimes, they do it better than mommies.
