Men, Did You Gain the "Daddy" Look???


My wife came home from her adopted Mom’s house the other day and proceeded to tell me that it was more than okay that I had gained well over 50 pounds since we had gotten married. The reason why was because I now had the “Daddy Look” per her adopted mother. Of course, I looked at her like she was crazy. I weighed 165 lbs for SEVENTEEN (17) years. Since we had Delbert, I started to gain a little bit of weight. However, when she got pregnant with Zeva, I GAINED 50 lbs and SHE LOST OVER 50 lbs.  Now I weigh 210-220 lbs!!!

My wife claims I look better now than I did when we dated in the past. Of course, I was skin and bones then. I felt a lot healthier then, but I even have to admit I was to skinny. I joke and say I WORKED to gain my weight!! Which, I did struggle to try and gain weight for years, but NEVER could do it. Does it take becoming a Daddy and a Husband to gain weight?? I haven’t let myself go because I still work just as hard as I always have. I still am physically active throughout a day.

Did you/your husband gain the “Daddy Look”? I never knew that look existed until I was advised that. Did you??

I’ll proudly wear my “Daddy Look” because I love my family!!! It’s amazing the things we learn as we grow up.
