Ormaybe, their zodiac signs are Cancer or Taurus, who’s always dreamed of having children one day.

If you’recurious to learn what kind of a man is most suitable to have kids with, astrology can give you a good description of the personalities of other people, so it can definitely tell you what zodiac signs make the best fathers.
