You may be wondering to yourself — what is a zaddy?
It’s something that you just know with your heart. And although it’s often hard to put intangible feelings into coherent words, I’ll do my best.
A zaddy is a DILF that isn’t necessarily a father. A man, over 30, that makes you go, “I’ll have what he’s having.” He’s handsome. He has swag, a swoonworthy “it” factor. He probably looks better bearded. And he has loads and loads of sex appeal. Zaddy, yas!
Perhaps the best way to define a zaddy is through example. Here is a list of 10 very special zaddies from across the pond. Why Brits? No reason. Mostly I was just bored.
Also? You’re welcome.
Elba is a phenomenal actor and also phenomenal to look at. 10/10 forever zaddy.
The oft overlooked “Poldark” star has quietly ascended to zaddy status when none of us were looking. And for that, I am thankful. Please be my baby zaddy.
Consider Fassy the OG of zaddies. He was a zaddy before there was even the word “zaddy” added into the lexicon of American English. He’s the number one zaddy-o.
Have I always considered this dude a zaddy? No. But I saw “Atomic Blonde” the other weekend and he rocks an amazing fur coat and it is all very zaddy, baby.
You probably watch “The Walking Dead,” and therefore recognize that Lincoln is the zaddy supreme. If you don’t, you should be ashamed of yourself.
A tiny stylish man with alienesque good looks? Ahoy, zaddy!
Look at this guy, then look at me in the eye and tell me he’s not a zaddy. I dare you.
Sir Ian Mckellan
This is probably a controversial call, but the Sir has swag for days and I cannot deny him a cherished place on this list.
Season 3 Era Jaime Lannister
While it’s important to consider real life men as zaddies, there’s no denying that Jaime Lannister — dressed in rags, dirty and bearded — was a real zaddy long legs in the third season of “Game of Thrones.”
The zaddy to end all zaddies — and probably the one with the most swag on this list. He’s mustachioed zaddy royalty.
