Study says 2019 is for the ‘dad bod’


PHOENIX Dads, we got your back… at least, America does. In a recent study from Planet Fitness, over 23 million men identify as having a dad bod in 2019 and the ladies love it. 

The term dad bod was coined around 2015 and has gained momentum ever since. In a time of universal inclusively and acceptance, the dad bod is taking over.

According to the study, among women and men, four in five believe the dad bod is a sign of confidence. With America rallying behind the movement, men are saying the term allows them to feel more comfortable in their own skin which boosts their self-esteem. 

Research shows that not only are men loving this trend but so are the women. With a 10% rise from last year, women think the dad bod isn’t just attractive, but sexy. 

That’s right fellas, the ladies are all about the dad bod this year, and we kind of hope this trend never goes away either. 

We aren’t the only ones obsessing with dad bods this summer. Check out this hilarious video celebrating all the dad bods out there, just in time for Father’s Day!
