He's only been a member of the daddy club for a few months, but Tom Fletcher has already impressed fans with his parenting skills.The McBusted star has been voted Celebrity Dad of the Year in the annual award run by comic book giant Marvel, beating the likes of Simon Cowell and Mo Farah in the process. Members of the public were asked to vote for a "superhero" star dad – and Tom took home the trophy. "It's amazing. I feel very honoured," the chart-topper told HELLO! Online. "There was a lot of tough competition and I didn't expect to win at all, especially as it's voted for by the public so it feels very nice. I think my superhero power would be to travel through time, if I could have one."

Tom and his wife – HELLO! Online blogger Giovannawelcomed their first child Buzz Michelangelo in March.

"It's incredible," he said of parenthood. "It completely changes your life in the most amazing way. All of the clichés you hear when you're about to become a parent are true. I experienced becoming a dad two and a half weeks before going on the biggest tour of my life so it was a crazy, crazy time."

Baby Buzz is growing up fast, with his proud parents Tom and Giovanna sharing their son's first moments with their numerous social media followers on Twitter and Instagram.

"Buzz can't roll over yet," said Tom. "He's at the stage where he's just working out that his hands belong to him and he can knock his dummy out of his mouth. I think he might be starting to teeth. It's all just been amazing because in the mornings he'll laugh at you. His laugh and his little chuckles are developing. It becomes really special."

And how will the new family be celebrating Tom's first Father's Day

"I'm actually flying to Copenhagen on the day, but I'll be at home in the morning," he said. "Hopefully Buzz will have planned an amazing surprise party for me. I think we'll try and get together with my dad and my father-in-law and Buzz and have a family morning together.

"I did buy a present from Buzz for Giovanna on Mother's Day but she's so busy being a mum, I don't think she'll have had time to get me a Father's Day present, which is absolutely fine," he laughed.

"She's doing great," he added. "One of Dad's main roles in the first few months is actually looking after and being there to support Mum. It's unbelievable what a woman has to go through for that period of her life so that's been a really important thing for me, to be there for her and support her."
