‘Dad Bod’? Being a Dad comes with many great new areas of life to explore, a longer list of qualifications that you gain over time, and activities you never thought to be involved in – You also never knew it was possible to hum children show theme songs in the shower… but now?? “Everything is awesome” – What’s the break down of a ‘dad’?

33% Stepping on Lego in the dark…

33% Putting the head back on the toy that the kids swung around by the hair…

33% Tyre puncture repairman…

What’s the ‘Dad Bod’?

The above are just some of the great traits that come from being a dad and according to the wonderful world of the internet, the ‘Dad Bod’ is the title given to a dad or middle-aged man who is a little soft to the touch but still alluring, some preferring the ‘Dad Bod’ as a trait marked as ‘extremely attractive’ in media. It’s a representation of someone who has become a little too busy to attend to the fine-tuning of fitness but holds his shape well, the past time is still present, just a little softer on the eyes.
