Father’s day is almost here, and I have a special little present for all my fellow dads. As it turns out, our manly (slightly chubby) physique is the new hot trend. FINALLY, all those hours of drinking beer and eating sausage are paying off.

According to a survey done by Planet Fitness:

  • Ooo La La. Close to seven in ten women (69 percent) find dads bods attractive, while nearly three in four (74 percent) moms agree.
  • Confidence is Key. 78 percent of women feel men with dad bods are confident in their own skin.  Four in five (80 percent) moms feel men with dad bods are confident in their own skin.
  • Don’t Suck It In. Close to half of women (47 percent) even believe dad bods are the new six-pack.  Nearly three in five (58 percent) mothers feel dad bods are the new six-pack.
  • He’s My Man. 83 percent of mothers would be proud to have a husband with a dad bod.

For those not familiar with a Dad Bod, Urban dictionary describes it as “A guy who has kids and was once in shape and still has guns that can crush beer cans but also with a belly that says I drank those beers and I can eat 6 slices of pizza in one seating.”

So, this weekend, lets raise a glass to all our fellow fathers. May their beer be cold and plentiful. Some women like a man with a “six pack,” but us Dads have “the whole keg.”
