Worried about getting in shape for the beach season? Maybe you feel just like me, that you have an extra couple of pounds around your waist and belly? Don’t worry. You will be the hottest thing this summer.
Because the latest trend is the “dadbod”, or the dad body. It’s New York Magazine who observes the new trend, mentioning Hollywood superstars Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic, Inception, The Departed), Denzel Washington (Malcolm X, Training Day, Remember The Titans) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men).
Here’s Leo DiCaprio pulling off the “dadbod”.
So forget all you’ve learned about diets, photos from Instagram when you’re at the gym, and six-pack abs. It’s the “dadbod” who will rule the beach this summer.
“The dad bod says, ‘I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time”, Mackenzie Pearson explains to New York Magazine.
Of course, we hope that this trend also applies to women. After all, the most important thing is that you are satisfied with yourself and your body!
