Jonathan was accompanied to the event by his wife, with whom he has four children - Emilia, six, Eduardo, five, Alessia, two, and newest addition Andrea, who was born in August 2018.
The star and his family are set to become the subject of an exclusive BBC documentary with Stacey Dooley, which will document their family life and huge rise in popularity.
Jonathan is the second influencer to win Celebrity Dad of the Year, following Mark Hoyle - also known as LadBaby - in 2018.
Speaking about his win, he said: “Of all the awards I have collected as part of my digital media success, this award, for being a good dad, will be the proudest achievement in my career - just like my kids are the proudest achievements in my life!
“For the past 9 years our audience have experienced the growth of our family, and we’re still continuing to take them on this incredible journey of life with us. I have married the girl of my dreams, had four happy, healthy kids, one little angel baby, and somewhere along the way collected six dogs, too!
“Thank you for following us on this journey, and thank you for voting! I am beyond heartened to win.”
