Feb. 18, 2016: *Shawn Desmond, 36 says he and his friends have been way ahead of the "Dad Bod" trend for years, and have been steadily working on their physiques even with their busy schedules.
"I started on my 'Dad Bod' back in 2007, the week after I met my future wife," says Desmond. "I had just lost a bunch of weight and she told me I could use a little meat on my bones. So I gained 67 pounds."
Desmond's wife *Laurie has been closely monitoring her husband's weight for years, and reports that the graphical representation looks like a giant checkmark. "Basically it started a little up, then dipped down big once, then just steadily back up after that." She goes on to say that she "...doesn't mind a little cushion. I like a man who appreciates my cuisine."
The trio of "Dad Bods" are known for their cutting-edge trend setting and have also claimed to have brought back things such as the Adidas Track Suit, elastic-bottom sweatpants, velcro, and backwards hats.
When asked what their next trend will be, Desmond responded, "Adult diapers. It's time."
