If you remember, out of shape dudes rejoiced when the dad bod became all the rage a few years ago.
According to Urban Dictionary the Dad bod is “a male body type that is best described as “softly round.” It’s built upon the theory that once a man has found a mate and fathered a child, he doesn’t need to worry about maintaining a sculpted physique.”
Last week a minor league baseball team rocked jerseys inspired by Dad bods at a game that happened on Father’s Day.
Happy Dad Bod Day! Shoutout to all the dads out there who are struttin' their stuff!
